Finally, ␤-lactam antibiotics seem to offer neuroprotection by increasing glutamate transporter GLT1 (or EAAT2) expression. In short, ceftriaxone has been demonstrated to be a potent stimulator of GLT1 expression in brain of animals, as well as its biochemical and functional activity .

However, O2– is the one that generates oxidative stress in ischemic brain [7, 16]. Recently, the presence of ROS produced by an increased expression of NOX4 (NADPH oxidase isoform) has been demonstrated in cortical neurons. NOX4 could exert a role in the angiogenesis induced by ischemia/hypoxia since it is overexpressed in newly formed capillaries . Ischemic brain also originates from a high production of NO which it is synthesized from L-arginine through NOS . The effect of NO increase can be neurotoxic or neuroprotective according to the NOS isoform starting from which is synthesized.
