Abstract:   (532 Views)
Background and Aim: Epilepsy as a neurological disorder is characterized by unpredictable and periodic seizures. In the present study, the anticonvulsant effect of different doses of salep hydroalcoholic extract on pentylenetetrazole (PTZ) induced seizures was investigated.
Methods and Materials/Patients: The animal model of seizure was established by the intraperitoneal injection of pentylenetetrazole (PTZ- 85 mg/kg). Hydroalcoholic extract of salep was administered to the animals in 3 doses (80, 160, and 320 mg/kg). The parameters of the onset and duration of tonic-clonic seizure, total seizure time, balance (falling), and jumping during seizure mortality rate were measured. The results were analyzed by ANOVA test at a significant level of p≤0.05.
Results: The results of the current study indicated that salep extract increased the delay in the onset of seizure in the PTZ + extract group in comparison with the PTZ group. The duration of tonic-clonic seizure and the number of falling, jumping, and total seizure times were significantly decreased by salep extract compared to the PTZ group. In the seizure + salep extract, the number and percentage of 24-hour mortality among animals decreased with increasing dosage. All changes were dose-dependent and 320 mg/kg showed the most effect.
ConclusionExtract of salep can probably have anticonvulsant properties, however, further studies are needed to clarify the exact mechanisms.
