The protective effect of cyclosporin A upon N-acetylaspartate and mitochondrial dysfunction following experimental diffuse traumatic brain injury.


Pre- and post-injury Cyclosporin A (CsA) administration has shown neuroprotective properties by ameliorating mitochondrial damage. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of CsA upon N-acetylaspartate (NAA) reduction and ATP loss, two sensitive markers of mitochondrial dysfunction and bioenergetic impairment. Adult male Sprague-Dawley rats were… (More)
