N-acetylcysteine (NAC): Brain First Aid
1. N-acetylcysteine reduces lipopolysaccharide-sensitized hypoxic-ischemic brain injury
Wang, X., Svedin, P., Nie, C., Lapatto, R., Zhu, C., Gustavsson, M., . . . Mallard, C. (2007). N-acetylcysteine reduces lipopolysaccharide-sensitized hypoxic-ischemic brain injury. Annals of Neurology, 61(3), 263-271. doi:10.1002/ana.21066
NAC (200mg/kg) provided marked neuroprotection with up to 78% reduction of brain injury in the pre+post-HI treatment group and 41% in the early (0 hour) post-HI treatment group, which was much more pronounced protection than another free radical scavenger, melatonin. Protection by NAC was associated with the following factors: (1) reduced isoprostane activation and nitrotyrosine formation; (2) increased levels of the antioxidants glutathione, thioredoxin-2, and (3) inhibition of caspase-3, calpain, and caspase-1 activation.
