Summary of "Oral administration of BDNF and/or GDNF normalizes serum BDNF level in the olfactory bulbectomized rats: A proof of concept study."

Neurotrophins, especially brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) have gained significant therapeutic interest particularly in neurologic and psychiatric disorders and they have been found in human breast milk of mothers who suffered from adverse outcomes in pregnancy. This study tested the hypothesis that oral administration of BDNF/GDNF (glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor) can exert a biological effect in a rat model of severe neuropathology induced by olfactory bulbectomy (OBX), which exhibits dysregulation of BDNF signaling and impaired blood-brain barrier.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A member of the nerve growth factor family of trophic factors. In the brain BDNF has a trophic action on retinal, cholinergic, and dopaminergic neurons, and in the peripheral nervous system it acts on both motor and sensory neurons. (From Kendrew, The Encyclopedia of Molecular Biology, 1994)
