This anti-inflammatory decreases inflammation in neural tissue. Pretreatment with this drug is able to decrease the proliferation of glial cells (see the image, right side). This experimental model is useful to create comparisons with new drugs to be tested.
Its is very important to perform a time response curve to get the best results.
