Evaluation of microglia in a rodent model of Parkinson's disease primed with L-DOPA after sub-anesthetic ketamine treatment.

Neurosci Lett 2021 Sep 15:136251. Epub 2021 Sep 15.

University of Arizona, College of Nursing, 1305 N. Martin Ave, P.O. Box 210203, Tucson, AZ 85721, USA. Electronic address:

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disease caused by the death of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta (SNpc), characterized by motor dysfunction. While PD symptoms are well treated with L-DOPA, continuous use can cause L-DOPA-induced dyskinesia (LID). We have previously demonstrated that sub-anesthetic ketamine attenuated LID development in rodents, measured by abnormal involuntary movements (AIMs), and reduced the density of maladaptive striatal dendritic mushroom spines.

Genetic variants associated with severe cutaneous adverse drug reactions induced by carbamazepine.

Br J Clin Pharmacol 2021 Aug 4. Epub 2021 Aug 4.

Department of Pharmacology, Faculty of Medicine, Khon Kaen University, Khon Kaen, Thailand.

Aims: Carbamazepine (CBZ) is one of the most common causative drugs of severe cutaneous adverse drug reactions (SCARs) including Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS), toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) and drug reactions with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms. Although genetic polymorphisms of the human leucocyte antigens (HLA) are well recognized key elements for the susceptibility to CBZ-induced SCARs, some evidence suggest that polymorphisms of microsomal epoxide hydrolase 1 (EPHX1) may also contribute to the risk of these SCARs. This study investigated the association between the HLA and EPHX1 polymorphisms on CBZ-induced SCARs in large sample sizes and well-defined SCARs patients. Read More
