Propentofylline improves learning and memory deficits in rats induced by beta-amyloid protein-(1-40).


We have reported that continuous infusion of beta-amyloid protein-(1-40) into the cerebral ventricle produces learning and memory deficits in rats. Propentofylline has potent stimulatory effects on nerve growth factor (NGF) synthesis/secretion in mouse astrocytes in vitro and increases cerebral NGF content in aged rats. In the present study, we examined the… (More)
