Summary of "Valproate is protective against 6-OHDA-induced dopaminergic neurodegeneration in rodent midbrain: A potential role of BDNF up-regulation."

The main purpose of this study was to extend previously reported showing potent neuroprotective effect of valproic acid (VPA) in primary midbrain neuro-glial cultures to investigate whether VPA could protect dopamine (DA) neurons in vivo against 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)-induced neurodegeneration and to determine the underlying mechanism.
