Background and Objective: Ferulic acid is a polyphenolic compound derived from some fruit and different cereals. Previous studies have shown that this compound has antioxidant, anti-apoptosis, and differentiation properties in the nervous system. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of ferulic acid on the death of oligodendrocytes and demyelination in male C57B6 / J mice in cuprizone induced animal model of multiple sclerosis.
Material and methods: In this study, demyelination was induced by oral administration of rats with the 0.2% cuprizone that was added to the usual diet during 6 weeks. Animals were fed daily with ferulic acid at doses of 10or 100 mg / kg of body weight. At the end of the sixth week, the passive avoidance and Y maze test were performed. Then, animal brains were removed and fixed to histological studies using Luxol–Fast-Blue staining
Results: The results of this study showed that ferulic acid reduced the random entry of animals into the arms of the Y maze in compared to the cuprizone treated group [p<0.01], but the sequential entry of animals into the Y maze were significantly increased [P<0.05]. A significant improvement in passive avoidance test was observed in the groups treated with ferulic acid at dose of 10 [p<0.05]. Histological evaluations showed the lower demyelination in Luxol-Fast-Blue in the group treated with ferulic acid.
Conclusion: The results of this study showed that ferulic acid plays a neuroprotective role in cuprizone models of multiple sclerosis through reducing neuronal demyelination and oligodendrocytes death.
