Oxidative stress-induced retinal damage is prevented by mild hypothermia in an ex vivo model of cultivated porcine retinas.

Ana M Mueller-Buehl, Hannah Doepper, Sven Grauthoff, Tobias Kiebler, Laura Peters, José Hurst, Sandra Kuehn, Karl U Bartz-Schmidt, H Burkard Dick, Stephanie C Joachim, Sven Schnichels,

BACKGROUND:Hydrogen peroxide (H2 O2 ) can be used in vitro to simulate oxidative stress. In retinal organ cultures, H2 O2 induces strong neurodegeneration of the retina. It is known that oxidative stress plays a role in the development of several retinal diseases including glaucoma and ischemia. Thus, we investigated whether ... Read more >>

Reduced ability of calcitriol to promote augmented dopamine release in the lesioned striatum of aged rats.

Wayne A Cass, Laura E Peters,

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a progressive and debilitating neurodegenerative disorder that affects over one million people in the United States. Previous studies, carried out in young adult rats, have shown that calcitriol, the active metabolite of vitamin D, can be neuroprotective in 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) models of PD. However, as PD ... Read more >>

Touch-free measurement of body temperature using close-up thermography of the ocular surface.

Benjamin Vogel, Heike Wagner, Johanna Gmoser, Anja Wörner, Anna Löschberger, Laura Peters, Anna Frey, Ulrich Hofmann, Stefan Frantz,

In experimental animal research body temperature (BT) is measured for the objective determination of an animals' physiological condition. Invasive, probe-based measurements are stressful and can influence experimental outcome. Alternatively BT can be determined touch-free from the emitted heat of the organism at a single spot using infrared thermometers [1]. To ... Read more >>

Protection by GDNF and other trophic factors against the dopamine-depleting effects of neurotoxic doses of methamphetamine.

Wayne A Cass, Laura E Peters, Michael E Harned, Kim B Seroogy,

Repeated methamphetamine (METH) administration to animals can result in long-lasting decreases in striatal dopamine (DA) content. It has previously been shown that glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) can reduce the DA-depleting effects of neurotoxic doses of METH. However, there are several other trophic factors that are protective against dopaminergic ... Read more >>

Calcitriol protects against the dopamine- and serotonin-depleting effects of neurotoxic doses of methamphetamine.

Wayne A Cass, Michael P Smith, Laura E Peters,

Repeated methamphetamine (METH) administration to animals can result in long-lasting decreases in brain dopamine (DA) and serotonin (5-HT) content. Calcitriol, the active metabolite of vitamin D, has potent effects on brain cells, both in vitro and in vivo, including the ability to upregulate trophic factors and protect against various lesions. ...

Reductions in spontaneous locomotor activity in aged male, but not female, rats in a model of early Parkinson's disease.

Wayne A Cass, Laura E Peters, Michael P Smith,

The excessive loss of dopamine (DA) neurons that occurs with Parkinson's disease is usually confined to older individuals. While 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) is often used in animal models of DA neuron degeneration, there have been relatively few studies that have examined the effects of 6-OHDA in older animals.
