Effects of misoprostol on pentylenetetrazol-induced seizures in mice.


The effects of prostaglandin E-analogue misoprostol on the susceptibility to pentilenetetrazol (PTZ)-induced seizures were examined in mice. Misoprostol (200-800 micrograms/kg), given subcutaneously 45 min before the subconvulsive dose of PTZ (30 mg/kg, i.p) provoked dose-dependent clonic-tonic seizures (30 to 100%) and mortality in mice. At 300 g/kg, s.c… (More)
