Effect of melatonin on neuroinflammation and acetylcholinesterase activity induced by LPS in rat brain.

Abstract

Melatonin, which plays an important role in circadian rhythm regulation, is highly potent endogenous free radical scavenger and antioxidant. To determine the efficacy of melatonin in neuroinflammation induced by intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) administration of lipopolysachcharide (LPS, 50 microg), pro-inflammatory cytokines (TNF-alpha and IL-1beta), and… (More)
