Department of Neurology, The Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, Bethesda, MD 20814, USA
Mol Med 7:219-29. 2001..The effect of chronic monocyte activation on the development of cerebral infarcts was thus studied in rats after provocation of a modified local Swartzman reaction, in brain vasculature...
- Endothelin B receptor deficiency augments neuronal damage upon exposure to hypoxia-ischemia in vivoANNA LEENA SIREN
Department of Neurology, Georg August University, and Max Planck Institute for Experimental Medicine, Hermann Rein Strasse 3, D 37075 Gottingen, Germany
Brain Res 945:144-9. 2002..n=5, P=0.0560). To conclude, absence of functional ETB receptors is associated with an increased susceptibility to HI in-vivo, which is not intrinsic to neurons. Antagonism of ETB receptors seems not to be desirable in ischemic stroke...
- A hematopoietic growth factor, thrombopoietin, has a proapoptotic role in the brainHannelore Ehrenreich
Max Planck Institute of Experimental Medicine, Georg August University, 37075 Goettingen, Germany
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 102:862-7. 2005..This effect is not only inhibited by EPO but also by neurotrophins. We suggest that the proapoptotic function of TPO helps to select for neurons that have acquired target-derived neurotrophic support...
- In vitro gender differences in neuronal survival on hypoxia and in 17beta-estradiol-mediated neuroprotectionAndrea Heyer
Max Planck Institute for Experimental Medicine, Gottingen, Germany
J Cereb Blood Flow Metab 25:427-30. 2005..Estrogens, acting via membrane receptors, had a higher neuroprotective power in male neurons, explained at least in part by the pronounced increase in estrogen receptor beta/alpha ratio during hypoxia in male cells only...
- Erythropoietin therapy for acute stroke is both safe and beneficialHannelore Ehrenreich
Max Planck Institute for Experimental Medicine, Departments of Neurology and Psychiatry, Georg August University, Goettingen, Germany
Mol Med 8:495-505. 2002..EPO protects neurons from hypoxic/ ischemic injury. The objective of this trial is to study the safety and efficacy of recombinant human EPO (rhEPO) for treatment of ischemic stroke in man...

Division of Clinical Neuroscience, Max Planck Institute for Experimental Medicine, Gottingen, Germany
Neurochem Res 30:1305-9. 2005..We suggest that CB1-receptor upregulation in the ETB-mutant hippocampus reflects an attempt to compensate for the lack of ETB-receptors...

- Reduced oxidative damage in ALS by high-dose enteral melatonin treatmentJochen H Weishaupt
Department of Neurology, Georg August University, Gottingen, Germany
J Pineal Res 41:313-23. 2006..This combination of preclinical effectiveness and proven safety in humans suggests that high-dose melatonin is suitable for clinical trials aimed at neuroprotection through antioxidation in ALS...

Division of Clinical Neuroscience, Max Planck Institute of Experimental Medicine, Georg August University, Gottingen, Germany
Brain 130:2577-88. 2007..There were no adverse events, no safety concerns and a surprisingly low need of blood-lettings. This first pilot study demonstrates the necessity and feasibility of controlled trials using high-dose rhEPO in chronic progressive MS...
