Neuroprotective effects of cystamine in aged parkinsonian mice.


Accumulating evidence suggests an important role of oxidation in pathologies such as Parkinson's disease. Here, we investigated the effects of cystamine, which has shown neuroprotection in animal models of Huntington's disease, in a parkinsonian mouse generated by the toxin MPTP. Aged mice (16 months of age) were assigned to either a 10 or 50 mg/kg/day… (More)
