Protective effect of HAMI 3379 against high glucose-induced PC12 cell injury

Diabetic neuropathy is one of the most common diabetic complications, associated with long time exposure to high glucose. Hyperglycemia induces the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species contributing to neuronal damage. We have previously reported that HAMI 3379, a selective antagonist of CysLT2 receptor, is involved in neuron injury after ischemia. In this study, we investigated the...
