-(S)-Alpha-phenyl-2-pyridine-ethanamine Dihydrochloride-, a low affinity uncompetitive N-methyl-D-aspartic acid antagonist, is effective in rodent models of global and focal ischemia.
[(S)-Alpha-phenyl-2-pyridine-ethanamine dihydrochloride] (ARL 15896AR) is a low affinity uncompetitive N-methyl-D-aspartic acid receptor antagonist that was tested in animal models of anoxia and ischemia. Pretreatment of rodents with ARL 15896AR extended survival time during exposure to hypoxia. With the rat four-vessel occlusion model of global ischemia (20 min), oral dosing commencing at reflow, resulted in significant protection of the CA1 hippocampal neurons. ARL 15896AR was, however, ine...Expand abstract
