Leflunomide Treatment Does Not Protect Neural Cells Following Oxygen-Glucose Deprivation (OGD) In Vitro (2024)
Journal Article
Curel, C. J. M., Nobeli, I., & Thornton, C. (2024). Leflunomide Treatment Does Not Protect Neural Cells Following Oxygen-Glucose Deprivation (OGD) In Vitro. Cells, 13(7), 631. https://doi.org/10.3390/cells13070631

Neonatal hypoxia-ischemia (HI) affects 2-3 per 1000 live births in developed countries and up to 26 per 1000 live births in developing countries. It is estimated that of the 750,000 infants experiencing a hypoxic-ischemic event during birth per year,...

Mitochondrial Dynamics in the Neonatal Brain -a potential target following injury? (2022)
Journal Article
Jones, A., & Thornton, C. (2022). Mitochondrial Dynamics in the Neonatal Brain -a potential target following injury?. Bioscience Reports, https://doi.org/10.1042/BSR20211696

The impact of birth asphyxia and its sequelae, hypoxic-ischaemic brain injury, is long lasting and significant, both for the infant and for their family. Treatment options are limited to therapeutic hypothermia, which is not universally successful an...

The role of mitochondria in cocaine addiction (2021)
Journal Article
Thornton, C., Grad, E., & Yaka, R. (in press). The role of mitochondria in cocaine addiction. Biochemical Journal,

The incidence of cocaine abuse is increasing especially in the UK where the rates are among the highest in Europe. In addition to its role as a psychostimulant, cocaine has profound effect on brain metabolism, impacting glycolysis and impairing oxida...
