ABSTRACT:
The present study was designed to find out the effect of piperine as an adjunctive therapy with sodium valproate against seizures induced by pentylenetetrazole (PTZ). Swiss albino mice (25-35g) received either vehicle, sodium valproate (300mg/kg), piperine (10mg/kg) or their combination orally for 8 days prior to PTZ (60mg/kg i.p.) administration. Sodium valproate significantly (P<0.05) increased the latency for clonic generalized seizures. Treatment with sodium valproate and piperine delayed the onset to both jerks (P<0.05) and clonic generalized seizures (P<0.001). All the animals in the combination group were protected from clonic generalized seizures. Our results suggest a favorable interaction of piperine with sodium valproate against PTZ induced seizures.
