Abstract

The potential neuroprotective effects of guanidinoethane sulfate (GES) on delayed neuronal death of hippocampal CA1 neurons were investigated using a gerbil model of forebrain ischemia. Neuronal densities of CA1 neurons in the saline control group (255.1 ± 11.7 cells/mm) and guanidinoethane sulfate pretreated control group (249.0 ± 9.4 cells/mm) showed no significant differences. By contrast, in animals subjected to ischemia, CA1 neurons of the guanidinoethane sulfate pretreated group showed a significantly higher number of surviving neurons (61.1 ± 55.11 cells/mm) compared to the saline group (17.75 ± 12.73 cells/mm) (p < 0.05, t-test). The study indicated that although partial, guanidinoethane sulfate is neuroprotective towards gerbil hippocampal CA1 neurons against ischemic insult.
