Abstract:This study compared the effectiveness of propofol with that of trolox and melatonin for reduction of lipid peroxidation in vitro. Lipid peroxidation was induced by addition of kainic acid (KA; 10 mM), hydrogen peroxide (H2O2; 10 mM), or ferrous ammonium sulfate (5 μM) to mouse brain homogen

Previous studies have demonstrated that a green tea polyphenol, (−)-epigallocatechine gallate (EGCG), has a potent free radical scavenging and antioxidant effect. Glutamate leads to excitotoxicity and oxidative stress, which are important pathophysiologic responses to cerebral ischemia resulting in brain edema and neuronal damage. We investigated the effect of EGCG on excitotoxic neuronal damage in a culture system and the effect on brain edema formation and lesion after unilateral cerebral isch...

Abstract Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) is widely used in neuroscience research as a solvent for various pharmacological agents in both cell culture and in vivo studies and is also used in humans to treat musculoskeletal problems and pain. We now report that concentrations of DMSO to which neurons are typically exposed in experimental studies and in human patients (0.5–1.5%) inhibit glutamate responses in hippocampal neurons. DMSO suppresses, in a rapidly reversible manner, electrophysiological respo...

Abstract Tryptoline and pinoline are two β-carbolines isolated from the nervous system of mammals. We investigated the ability of these compounds to prevent lipid peroxidation induced by hydrogen peroxide in rat brain homogenates. We also compared their effects with other known antioxidants including melatonin, trolox and ascorbic acid. Lipid peroxidation was assessed by measuring malonaldehyde (MDA) and 4-hydroxy-alkenals (4-HDA) concentrations in the brain homogenates. Incubation with hydrogen...

The anesthetic propofol (PPF) has been shown to be an antioxidant in acellular experiments. This study was designed to assess the ability of PPF to protect primary-cultured brain cells against iron-mediated toxicity. A comparison with trolox (TX), a hydrosoluble vitamin E analogue, was performed. Rat cortical cells were exposed to 10 μM FeSO4, PPF and/or TX. After a 4-h incubation, PPF and TX improved cell survival (lactate dehydrogenase measurements) in a concentration-dependent manner. The res...

Abstract Oxidative stress has been implicated in a variety of acute and chronic neurologic conditions, including epilepsy. Both the kainic acid and pilocarpine are useful models of temporal lobe epilepsy in rodents. As an index of lipid peroxidation the level thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) was measured after the status epileticus induced by pilocarpine or kainic acid. In hippocampus there was a slight enhancement in the TBARS levels measured 12–14 h after the end of status epile...

Activation of ionotropic glutamate receptors of the AMPA and NMDA subtypes likely contributes to neuronal injury and death in various neurodegenerative disorders. Excitotoxicity can manifest as either apoptosis or necrosis, but the mechanisms that determine the mode of cell death are not known. We now report that levels of AMPA receptor subunits GluR-1 and GluR-4 are rapidly decreased in cultured rat hippocampal neurons undergoing apoptosis in response to withdrawal of trophic support (WTS), whe...

Abstract We report direct electron spin resonance (ESR) evidence of extracellular free radical formation during kainic acid-induced seizures obtained using in vivo brain microdialysis in freely moving rats. Saline solution containing the spin trap agent α-(4-pyridyl-N-oxide)-N-tert-butylnitrone was perfused through the hippocampus. ESR analysis of the dialysate samples revealed a six-line spectra, for which the hyperfine coupling constants corresponded to those of the ESR signal from the lipoxyg...

Oxidative stress caused by mitochondrial dysfunction during reperfusion is a key pathogenic mechanism in cerebral ischemia–reperfusion (IR) injury. Propofol (2,6-diisopropylphenol) has been proven to attenuate mitochondrial dysfunction and reperfusion injury. The current study reveals that propofol decreases oxidative stress injury by preventing succinate accumulation in focal cerebral IR injury. We evaluated whether propofol could attenuate ischemic accumulation of succinate in transient middle...

Problems concerning vascular blood flow are the most frequently encountered ones after flap applications. The flap tissue starts to develop ischemia in patients with a vascular blood flow insufficiency. And reperfusion starts in those patients in whom the ischemia is temporary, triggering an ischemia-reperfusion injury depending on the duration of the ischemia. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of propofol, which is an anesthetic agent known to have an antioxidant effect and a fre...

Abstract Aims Various investigations have demonstrated the protective capacity of general anesthetics as neuroprotective agents. The effects of propofol against ischemia are known to reside in its antioxidant properties and its GABAergic activity. Other aromatic alcohols have also been reported as able to protect neurons against oxidative damage. The aim of this work is to evaluate the potential neuroprotective effect of some phenols, structurally analogues of propofol, with proven GABAergic act...

Propofol is a short-acting intra - venous anaesthetic agent and widely used not only in operating rooms but also in the intensive care unit (ICU). Apart from its multiple anaes - thetic advantages, the neuroprotective effect of propofol has been demonstrated in diverse mod - els of neuronal injury. The effect of propofol re - sults from activation of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptor, modulation excitatory amino acid transmitter system and protecting brain cells against oxidative stress.

Ischamie und Reperfusion (I/R) im Gastrointestinaltrakt konnen eine Dysfunktion der endothelialen und epithelialen Barriere verursachen und dadurch zur Translokation von Bakterien und schlieslich zum Multiorganversagen fuhren. In mehreren Studien wurde demonstriert, dass Anasthetika I/R-Schaden vermindern konnen, allerdings sind die zellularen und molekularen Mechanismen noch weitgehend ungeklart.

Vitamin E, such as alpha-tocopherol (ATPH) and alpha-tocotrienol (ATTN), is a chain-breaking antioxidant that prevents the chain propagation step during lipid peroxidation. In the present study, we investigated the effects of ATTN on KA-induced neuronal death using organotypic hippocampal slice culture (OHSC) and compared the neuroprotective effects of ATTN and ATPH. After 15 h KA (5 μM) treatment, delayed neuronal death was detected in the CA3 region and reactive oxygen species (ROS) formation ...

Oxidative stress has been implicated in the pathophysiology of neurologic disorders and brain dysfunctions. Spirulina (Arthrospira) maxima (SP) is a cyanobacteria with nutritional, pharmacological and important antioxidant activity. This study aims to evaluate the neuroprotective role of SP against kainic acid (KA) neurotoxicity. Male SW mice were treated with SP for 24 days (200, 400 and 800 mg/kg, (o.v.) and KA (35 mg/kg) was intraperitoneally administered as a single dose on day 14. After the...

Background and purpose: Ischaemia damages to the cardiac mitochondria by increasing generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and peroxidation of cardiolipin. The inhibited mitochondrial function leads to the cardiac injury during reperfusion. Propofol (2, 6-diisopropylphenol), an intravenous anaesthetic, has been shown to decrease cardiac ischaemia and reperfusion injury. In the present study, we propose that propofol protects mitochondrial function and decreases cardiac injury by prevention ...

Cardiomyocyte hypertrophy is formed in response to pressure or volume overload, injury, or neurohormonal activation. The most important vascular hormone that contributes to the development of hypertrophy is angiotensin II (Ang II). Accumulating studies have suggested that reactive oxygen species (ROS) may play an important role in cardiac hypertrophy. Propofol is a general anesthetic that possesses antioxidant action. We therefore examined whether propofol inhibited Ang II–induced cardiomyocyte ...
