The excitatory amino acid antagonist amino-phosphono-valeric acid (APV) provides protection against penicillin-induced epileptic activity in the rat



The excitatory amino acid antagonist amino-phosphono-valeric acid (APV) provides protection against penicillin-induced epileptic activity in the rat



Epilepsy Research 6(3): 249-251



The effects of intraperitoneal injection of 2-amino-5-phosphono-valeric acid (APV) on EEG-monitored penicillin-induced epileptic activity in rats were evaluated. A significant decrease in the frequency of spikes occurred with low APV dosages (10 and 20 mg/kg), while an almost complete disappearance of spike activity was observed at higher APV doses (40 and 160 mg/kg). Our data suggest that excitatory amino acids play a relevant role in penicillin-induced epileptic activity in rats.
