"These findings warrant continued investigation into the potential neuroprotective
effects of polyphenols in at-risk newborns, such as those with hypoxic-ischemic injury," the researcher added.
These new results further support the neuroprotective
properties of intranasally delivered ST266 in mice with experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis -induced experimental optic neuritis.
While testing 400 different plant extracts and flavonoids, researchers from the Salk Institute discovered that yerba santa contains the flavanone sterubin, which has neuroprotective
and anti-inflammatory effects.
Our identification of sterubin as a potent neuroprotective
component of a native California plant called Yerba santa (Eriodictyon californicum) is a promising step in that direction."
The authors should be complimented for highlighting the neuroprotective
role of amantadine in SAH.
Based on the findings, different mechanisms, separately or concomitantly, might contribute to the neuroprotective
effects of Hsd .
Professor Christian Holscher, who led the research, said: "These very promising outcomes demonstrate the efficacy of these novel multiple receptor drugs that originally were developed to treat type 2 diabetes but have shown consistent neuroprotective
effects in several studies." Type 2 diabetes is known to be a risk factor for Alzheimer's.
As mentioned above, the regulation of MPO levels in microglia by resveratrol provide its neuroprotective
Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Gene expression in specific cells and in specific regions can provide a more precise, neuroprotective
approach than traditional treatments for neurological diseases.
Researchers said tea contains antioxidants and neuroprotective
chemicals which have been linked to a lowered risk of serious conditions.
MEDICINAL: Tea contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective
chemicals, the research notes.
In previous studies, various biological elements and substances have been used and their neuroprotective
effects on the central and peripheral nervous systems have shown (5-7).
