Treatment for acute physical insult to the central nervous system



Treatment for acute physical insult to the central nervous system



Official Gazette of the United States Patent & Trademark Office Patents 1260(1), July 2



A method of promoting functional recovery and reducing oxidative stress and inflammation following an acute physical insult to the central nervous system, comprising administering to a mammalian patient which has suffered an acute physical insult to the central nervous system an initial dose of L-2-oxothiazolidine-4-carboxylate ("OTC") or a variant thereof is disclosed. This method preferably further includes the step of administering a number of subsequent doses of OTC or a variant thereof as subsequent time periods. Also provided is a use of OTC or a variant thereof in the preparation of a medicament useful in reducing inflammation in the central nervous system and promoting the functional recovery of a mammalian patient which has suffered an acute physical insult to the central nervous system, such as neurotrauma, stroke or aneurysm.
