Plasma Topiramate Concentrations From Doses Associated with Neuroprotection Against White Matter Injury and Stroke in Two Strains of Rat Pups

Cerebral white matter (WM) injury and stroke are common neuropathological injuries in newborns with congenital heart defects (CHDs) requiring surgery. Previous investigations in Long Evans rat pups subjected to hypoxia-ischemia found that intraperitoneal (i.p.) topiramate (TPM) at 30 mg/kg, but not 50 mg/kg, conferred neuroprotection. In Sprague-Dawley pups, a dose of 30 mg/kg protected against […]
