Role of lithium chloride and paraldehyde in acute changes after lithium-pilocarpine status epilepticus (SE) induced at postnatal day 12 was studied in 15-day-old rats. In addition to SE group four other groups were formed: naïve animals without any injection, lithium chloride group, paraldehyde group and lithium-paraldehyde group. Cortical epileptic afterdischarges (CxADs) induced by increasing intensities of stimulation current were used as a measure of excitability. SE animals did not exhibit any change in duration of CxADs with increasing stimulation intensity in contrast to naïve control with a progressive prolongation of CxAD. LiCl group was similar to SE rats whereas paraldehyde and lithium-paraldehyde groups exhibited some progress in duration of ADs. Lithium chloride participates in short-term changes of CxADs after SE. Paraldehyde and combination of lithium and paraldehyde are similar to naïve controls.

Which component of treatment is important for changes of cortical epileptic afterdischarges after status epilepticus in immature rats?

Abstract

Role of lithium chloride and paraldehyde in acute changes after lithium-pilocarpine status epilepticus (SE) induced at postnatal day 12 was studied in 15-day-old rats. In addition to SE group four other groups were formed: naïve animals without any injection, lithium chloride group, paraldehyde group and lithium-paraldehyde group. Cortical epileptic afterdischarges (CxADs) induced by increasing intensities of stimulation current were used as a measure of excitability. SE animals did not exhibit any change in duration of CxADs with increasing stimulation intensity in contrast to naïve control with a progressive prolongation of CxAD. LiCl group was similar to SE rats whereas paraldehyde and lithium-paraldehyde groups exhibited some progress in duration of ADs. Lithium chloride participates in short-term changes of CxADs after SE. Paraldehyde and combination of lithium and paraldehyde are similar to naïve controls.
