چکیده:  

Introduction: 3-4, methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) causes apoptosis in nervous system and several studies suggest that oxidative stress contributes to MDMA-induced neurotoxicity. The aim of this study is to examine the effects of N-acetyl-L-Cystein (NAC) as an antioxidant on MDMA-induced apoptosis.

Methods:

21 Sprague dawley male rats (200-250mg) were treated with MDMA (2×0,5mg/kg) or MDMA plus NAC (100mg/kg IP for 7 day). After last administration of MDMA, rats were killed, cerebellum was removed and Bax and Bcl-2 expression was assessed by western blotting method.

Results:

The results of this study showed that MDMA causes up-regulation of Bax and down-regulation of Bcl-2 and NAC administration attenuated MDMA-induced apoptosis.

Discussion:

The present study suggests that NAC treatment may improve MDMA-induced neurotoxicity.
