The article focuses on neurosurgical anesthesia. Understanding of the physiology and pathophysiology of the central nervous system (CNS) and the effect of anesthetic agents on the CNS are the bases of anesthetic management of neurosurgical patients. Studies on neuroanesthesia have emphasized on the minor differences in anesthetic-induced changes in cerebral blood flow (CBF), cerebral metabolic rate (CMR) and intracranial pressure (ICP).

    Free radicals have been found in high concentrations within inflammatory multiple sclerosis (MS) lesions. The superoxide anion (O2-) reacts rapidly with nitric oxide (NO), producing peroxynitrite (ONOO-). Glatiramer acetate (GA) is a specific MS immunomodulator that induces the synthesis of Th2...

    TH17 lymphocytes appear to be essential in the pathogenesis of numerous inflammatory diseases. We demonstrate here the expression of IL-17 and IL-22 receptors on blood-brain barrier endothelial cells (BBB-ECs) in multiple sclerosis lesions, and show that IL-17 and IL-22 disrupt BBB tight...

    The effects of chronic administration of Efavirenz commonly used as part of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) for the treatment of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) type-1 on the weight of the brain and inferior colliculus of adult wistar rats was carefully studied. The rats of both...
