ASIC3 in the cerebrospinal fluid-contacting nucleus of brain parenchyma contributes to inflammatory pain in rats.
The study explores the role of acid-sensitive ion channel 3 (ASIC3) in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)-contacting nucleus of the parenchyma of rat brain, in inflammatory pain.

Quantitative investigation of the brain-to-cerebrospinal fluid unbound drug concentration ratio under steady-state conditions in rats using a pharmacokinetic model and scaling factors for active efflux transporters.
A pharmacokinetic model was constructed to explain the difference in brain- and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)-to-plasma and brain-to-CSF unbound drug concentration ratios (Kp,uu,brain, Kp,uu,CSF, and Kp,uu,CSF/brain, respectively) of drugs under steady-s

The concentration of erlotinib in the cerebrospinal fluid of patients with brain metastasis from non-small-cell lung cancer.
It has been demonstrated that erlotinib is effective in treating patients with brain metastasis from non-small-cell lung cancer. However, the number of studies determining the erlotinib concentration in these patients is limited. The purpose of this

Effect of protein binding on unbound atazanavir and darunavir cerebrospinal fluid concentrations.
HIV-1 protease inhibitors (PIs) exhibit different protein binding affinities and achieve variable plasma and tissue concentrations. Degree of plasma protein binding may impact central nervous system penetration. This cross-sectional study assessed ce

Increased cerebrospinal fluid soluble TREM2 concentration in Alzheimer's disease.
The discovery that heterozygous missense mutations in the gene encoding triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells 2 (TREM2) are risk factors for Alzheimer's disease (AD), with only the apolipoprotein E (APOE) ε4 gene allele conferring a higher r

Reduced cerebrospinal fluid ethanolamine concentration in major depressive disorder.
Amino acids play key roles in the function of the central nervous system, and their alterations are implicated in psychiatric disorders. In the search for a biomarker for major depressive disorder (MDD), we used high-performance liquid chromatography

A novel method to study cerebrospinal fluid dynamics in rats.
Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow dynamics play critical roles in both the immature and adult brain, with implications for neurodevelopment and disease processes such as hydrocephalus and neurodegeneration. Remarkably, the only reported method to date f

The influence of preanalytical conditions on the DJ-1 concentration in human cerebrospinal fluid.
The purpose of this study was to establish the influence of centrifugation and protease activity on the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) concentrations of DJ-1 and hemoglobin.

Access to cerebrospinal fluid in piglets via the cisterna magna: optimization and description of the technique.
The collection of cerebrospinal fluid is necessary in order to determine its composition. It can then be used to diagnose various diseases. The aim of the study was to develop and optimize a technique for performing safe centesis for the collection o
