Minocycline Scores for Neuroprotection

A positive study on minocycline and neuroprotection 8)

Multiple neuroprotective mechanisms of minocycline in autoimmune CNS inflammation
Available therapies mainly target the inflammatory component of the disease but fail to prevent neurodegeneration.

Functional and histopathological data of RGCs and optic nerves revealed neuronal and axonal protection when minocycline treatment was started on the day of immunization.

Furthermore, we demonstrate that minocycline-induced neuroprotection is related to a ...
