Pentoxifylline improves learning and memory in glutamate-lesioned rats.

The present work shows the effects of pentoxifylline (ptx), on learning and memory in rats with hippocampal lesions induced by glutamate (glu). Immediately after stereotaxic procedures and in the absence or presence of glu lesions, animals were treated with ptx (50, 100, or 200 mg/kg, IP) for 6 days. Twenty-four hours after the last injection, behavior and… CONTINUE READING
