Valproic acid attenuates inflammation in experimental autoimmune neuritis

Abstract

Valproic acid (VPA) is a short-chain branched fatty with anti-inflammatory, neuro-protective and axon-remodeling effects. We investigated the effects of VPA in rats in which experimental autoimmune neuritis (EAN) had been induced (EAN rats).
