Recently, special attention has been given to the possible neuroprotective effects of lithium, especially by the discovery of its regulatory effects on pro and anti-apoptotic proteins. Lithium substantially increases the cytoprotective proteins expression in the central nervous system, both in rat cortex and in human cells of neuronal origin. In addition to neuroprotective actions, it a...
In recent years we have given special attention to the possible neuroprotective effects of lithium, especially by the discovery of its regulatory effects on protein pro and anti-apoptotic. The lithium substantially increases the expression of cytoprotective proteins in central nervous system either in rat cortex as in human cells of neural origin. Besides neuroprotective effects, it ass...
Schizophrenia is an incapacitating mental disorder, which affects 5/1000 people in Brazil. The physiopathology of this disease is not completed elucidated and its treatment causes important collateral effects, such as motor disturbances, metabolic dysregulation and agranulocytosis. Multiple evidence show a pro-oxidative status in the disease, which can lead to oxidative stress damage, i...
