Evaluation of neuroprotective properties of Ademol with experimental traumatic brain injury conditions
The choice of drugs in traumatic injuries of the head is one of the most complex problems in the complex treatment of such patients. The aim was to estimate the cerebroprotective action of Ademol on the indicator of lethality of rats against the background of an experimental traumatic brain injury (TBI). The experimental model of the TBI of severe severity was caused by the action of the flow of carbon dioxide under pressure that was created using a gas cylinder pneumatic gun. The therapeutic effect of Ademol on the model TBI was evaluated at doses of 1, 2 and 4 mg/kg intravenously. Pseudo-operative animals and control group received a 0.9% NaCl solution at a dose of 2 ml/kg. The results were processed using the statistical program StatPlus 2009. Used Fisher angular transformation when accounting for results in an alternative form. In the course of the experiment, it was found that in the control group at the end of the experiment, 8 days after the TBI model, death of 90% of the rats was recorded p<0.05. Ademol showed the highest protective effect on the brain at a dose of 2 mg/kg where the death of rats was 30% on the 8th day of the experiment. The obtained data indicate that among the studied doses 1; 2 and 4 mg/kg is conventionally effective at just 2 mg/kg, in which Ademol exhibited the highest neuroprotective activity (p<0.05).
