Pergolide protects SH-SY5Y cells against neurodegeneration induced by H(2)O(2).


We found that pergolide, a dopamine D1/D2 receptor agonist used in the clinical therapy of Parkinson's disease, protects SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma cells from cell death induced by a brief pulse (15 min) of 1 mM H(2)O(2). Neuroprotection was found when pergolide was added to the culture medium either simultaneously with (EC(50)=60 nM) or 2 h before (EC(50)=40 nM… (More)
