The effect of trimethyltin (TMT; 4.26 mg/kg i.p.), at 1 and 14 hr following administration, on chemically-induced seizures in mice is reported.

Abstract

The effect of trimethyltin (TMT; 4.26 mg/kg i.p.), at 1 and 14 hr following administration, on chemically-induced seizures in mice is reported. At 1 hr following administration, TMT decreased seizure responsiveness and protected animals from bicuculline, isonicotinic acid hydrazide (INH) and pentylenetetrazol (PTZ) induced seizures. At 14 hr following administration, TMT provided little protection against bicuculline, INH or PTZ induced seizures. Only slight decreases in seizure responsiveness were observed with strychnine induced seizures at either 1 or 14 hr. By 16 hr following administration, animals exhibited spontaneous tremors and convulsions. The results indicate that TMT exerts a biphasic effect on central nervous system excitability.
