Glycerol does not reduce neuronal damage in experimental Streptococcus pneumoniae meningitis in rabbits

Abstract

To study the effect of high-dose glycerol therapy on inflammation and neuronal destruction in a model of experimental pneumococcal meningitis, 14 New Zealand White rabbits were infected intracisternally with Streptococcus pneumoniae type 3. Sixteen hours after infection, 7 animals received intravenous glycerol therapy (1 g kg−1 bolus and 0.5 g kg 1h−1… (More)
