چکیده

Aims:Memory deficit is the most visible symptom of cerebral ischemia. The hippocampus is sensitive against cerebral ischemia. Oxidative stress and inflammation are involved in the pathological process after cerebral ischemic injury. Paroxetine has anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory effects. In this study the effect of paroxetine on memory deficit after cerebral ischemia was investigated. Methods: Cerebral ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury model was established using the bilateral occlusion of common carotid artery method. Paroxetine (10 mg/kg) was intraperitoneally injected into rats, 24 hours before surgery or once a day for 7 days after surgery. Learning and memory were evaluated using the Morris water maze task, then the brain tissue was fixed and hippocampal CA1 pyramidal cells damage was analyzed using the Nissl staining method. Results: In the ischemia group the escape latency time (ELT) and the swimming path length (SPL) were significantly increased and the time spent in target quadrant (TSTQ) was significantly decreased compared with the control group. The ELT and the SPL were significantly shortened and the TSTQ was significantly increased compared with the ischemia group after Pre- or post-ischemic administration of paroxetine. The percentage of viable pyramidal cells in the ischemia group was significantly decreased compared with the control group. The percentage of viable cells was significantly increased following pre-or post-ischemic administration of paroxetine compared with the ischemia group. Conclusion:Memory deficit due to I/R was improved and the percentage of viable cells in CA1 region was increased after administration of paroxetine. Therefore, paroxetine may have a neuroprotective effect against cerebral ischemia.

Cell therapy is the most advanced treatment of the cerebral ischemia, nowadays. Herein, we discuss the neuroprotective effects of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) on rat hippocampal cells following intravenous injection of these cells in an ischemia-reperfusion model. Adult male Wistar rats were divided into 5 groups: control, sham (surgery without blockage of common carotid arteries)...

Objective(s) The brief interruption of cerebral blood flow causes permanent brain damage and behavioral dysfunction. The hippocampus is highly vulnerable to ischemic insults, particularly the CA1 pyramidal cell layer. There is no effective pharmacological strategy for improving brain tissue damage induced by cerebral ischemia. Previous studies reported that pentoxifylline (PTX) has a neuroprot...

Introduction: Cerebral ischemia is one of the most common causes of death in human populations in the industrial communities. The need for animal models is inevitable to study the pathophysiology and treatment of cerebral ischemia in human. The current study aimed at evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of different techniques used to create ischemia in previous studies and optimizing the tr...

Background & Aims: Ischemic postconditioning, conducted by a series of brief occlusion and release of the bilateral common carotid arteries, has neuroprotective properties in permanent or transient models of middle cerebral artery (MCA) occlusion but its delayed neuroprotective effects in the embolic model of stroke, especially in female rat, have not yet been reported and were investigated ...

Safranal is a monoterpene aldehyde found in saffron (Crocus sativus L.) petals. It has been previously reported that safranal has a wide range of activities such as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. In this study, we examined the effect of safranal on brain injuries in a transient model of focal cerebral ischemia. Transient focal cerebral ischemia was induced by middle cerebral artery ...
