Citicoline Enhances Neuroregenerative Processes After Experimental Stroke in Rats

The present data demonstrate that, apart from the well-known neuroprotective effects in acute ischemic stroke, citicoline also possesses a substantial neuroregenerative potential, and promising possibilities of neurological treatment including chronic stroke open up.

CDP-choline protects motor neurons against apoptotic changes in a model of chronic glutamate excitotoxicity in vitro.

Results indicate that CDP-choline treatment might exert a neuroprotective effect against neuronal apoptotic changes in a model of chronic excitotoxicity in vitro.

Citicoline and postconditioning provides neuroprotection in a rat model of ischemic spinal cord injury

It is thought that combining citicoline with postconditioning provides protection by inhibiting the caspase pathway and by increasing the antiapoptotic proteins.

Effects of Citicoline on Structural/Functional Consequences of Focal Ischemia of the Rat Brain

Citicoline, when introduced for seven days after reperfusion, positively affects the recovery of nerve tissue and the functional state of cerebral neurons within the ischemic penumbra.

Possible Pharmacodynamic Interaction of Azelnidipine with Citicoline Against Ischemic Brain Injury: Behavioral, Biochemical and Histological Alterations

Azelnidipine and citicoline synergistically decrease excitotoxic and oxidative damage against ischemic brain injury in Wistar rats and, therefore, propose a clinically relevant combination for the prevention of postischemic neuronal damage.

Ischemic morphological damage improvement by citicoline in rat brain

The aim of the presented study was to investigate the ability of citicoline ability to prevent the morphological changes typical of ischemic disturbances.

Greatly improved neuroprotective efficiency of citicoline by stereotactic delivery in treatment of ischemic injury

An improved neuroprotective efficiency was realized by a full distribution of citicoline in most of middle cerebral artery (MCA) territory and an adequate drug reaction in the involved areas of the brain and brain lesions of treated rats by stereotactic delivery were well predicted.

Citicoline (CDP‐choline) increases Sirtuin1 expression concomitant to neuroprotection in experimental stroke

A robust effect of CDP‐choline like SIRT1 activator by up‐regulating its expression is demonstrated and the findings suggest that therapeutic strategies to activate Sirt1 may be useful in the treatment of stroke.

Neuroprotection and Recovery: Recent Data at the Bench on Citicoline

Background and Purpose— In this work, we review recent data on the actions of citicoline, citicoline is a drug with demonstrated neuroprotective properties in both animals and humans. Summary of

Neuroprotection in Perinatal Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy — Pharmacologic Combination Therapy

There is no generally accepted standard of care in the brain-oriented pharmacologic therapy for full-term neonates sustaining cerebral hypoxia–ischemia (H-I), and neuroprotective treatment for HIE in the clinical practice is limited to the application of hypothermia in the newborn.



Effects of Citicoline on Phospholipid and Glutathione Levels in Transient Cerebral Ischemia

The data indicated that the effects of citicoline on phospholipids occurred primarily during the first day of reperfusions, with effects on glutathione being important over the 3-day reperfusion period.

Citicoline: neuroprotective mechanisms 
in cerebral ischemia

The studies in transient cerebral ischemia suggest that citicoline might enhance reconstruction of PtdCho and sphingomyelin, but could act by inhibiting the destructive processes (activation of phospholipases), and a singular unifying unifying mechanism has been hypothesized.

The effects of prolonged treatment with citicoline in temporary experimental focal ischemia

Citicoline decreases phospholipase A2 stimulation and hydroxyl radical generation in transient cerebral ischemia

It is suggested that citicoline affects PLA2 stimulation and decreases OH· generation after transient cerebral ischemia, which is major factors causing neuronal injury in CNS trauma and neurodegenerative diseases.

Citicoline protects hippocampal neurons against apoptosis induced by brain beta-amyloid deposits plus cerebral hypoperfusion in rats.

It was concluded that citicoline exerts antiapoptotic, neuroprotective and antiamnesic effects in conditions of neurodegeneration induced by A beta 4 plus hypoperfusion.

Citicoline mechanisms and clinical efficacy in cerebral ischemia

The clinical efficacy of citicoline should be examined further in light of the recent phase III stroke clinical trials and experimental data for cerebral ischemia and several factors that might have hindered efficacy in stroke clinical Trials in the United States are evaluated.

Effects of CDP-choline on neurologic deficits and cerebral glucose metabolism in a rat model of cerebral ischemia.

CDP-choline has beneficial effects on brain dysfunction induced by cerebral ischemia, which may be due in part to the restorative effects of CDP- choline on disturbed cerebral glucose metabolism, probably by stimulating phospholipid biosynthesis.

Diazepam Promotes ATP Recovery and Prevents Cytochrome c Release in Hippocampal Slices After In Vitro Ischemia

Benzodiazepines protect hippocampal neurons when administered within the first few hours after transient cerebral ischemia, and complete recovery of ATP and prevention of cytochrome c release from mitochondria can be achieved when diazepam is given after the loss of ATP induced by OGD.

Synergistic effects of citicoline and MK-801 in temporary experimental focal ischemia in rats.

These results demonstrate synergistic neuroprotective effects of citicoline and an NMDA antagonist in temporary experimental focal ischemia in animals dying prematurely and those surviving for 7 days.

Inhibition of Glutamate Release via Recovery of ATP Levels Accounts for a Neuroprotective Effect of Aspirin in Rat Cortical Neurons Exposed to Oxygen-Glucose Deprivation

The present findings show a novel mechanism for the neuroprotective effects of aspirin, which takes place at concentrations in the antithrombotic-analgesic range, useful in the management of patients with high risk of ischemic events.
