Apoptosis is one essential step for neuronal death in the nigrostriatal region in patients with Parkinson's disease. Cytotoxic tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) and the proinflammatory cytokine interleukin-6 (Il-6) provide a proapoptotic environment. We investigated the influence of the antiparkinsonian compound budipine on the release of TNF-alpha and Il-6 in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) and on the degree of cisplatin induced apoptotic cell death in SH-SY 5Y human neuroblastoma cells. 10(-7), 10(-8), 10(-9) mol/l of budipine significantly reduced release of TNF-alpha and Il-6 in PBMC and decreased apoptotic cell death after 50 hours and 74 hours in the SH-SY 5Y cells. Our results suggest, that budipine administration provides an antiapoptotic environment and slows neuronal apoptotic and inflammatory mediated loss of neurons. [less ▲]
