N-Acetylcystein amide protects against methamphetamine-induced oxidative stress in human brain endothelial cells
"Oxidative stress plays an important role in neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease. Methamphetamine (METH) is an amphetamine analog that causes degeneration of the dopaminergic system in mammals and subsequent oxidative stress. In our present study, we have used immortalized human brain microvascular endothelial cells to test whether METH induces oxidative stress in vitro and the ability of a new antioxidant, N-Acetylcystein amide (NACA), to prevent METH-induced oxidative stress"--Abstract, leaf iii.
