Ginseng Total Saponin Inhibits the Dopaminergic Depletions Induced by Methamphetamine
04 January 2007 (online)
Pretreatment with ginseng total saponin (GTS) reduced the magnitude of the methamphetamine-induced dopamine (DA), 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC), and homovanillinic acid (HVA) depletions. It is suggested that GTS can, in part, prevent the methamphetamine-induced striatal dopaminergic depletions.
