Abstract
Alzheimer?s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by memory impairment. Codonopsis lanceolata has been employed clinically for lung inflammatory diseases such as asthma, tonsillitis, and pharyngitis. The present study was undertaken to evaluate the effect of fermented C. lanceolata (300, 500 and 800 mg/kg) on learning and memory impairment induced by scopolamine using the Morris water maze test and passive avoidance test. The results of Morris water maze test and passive avoidance test that administration of fermented C. lanceolata (800 mg/kg) led to improve memory. The neuroprotective effect of fermented C. lanceolata against the cytotoxicity induced by glutamate in HT22 cell. Fermented C. lanceolata also showed neuroprotective effect at the concentration of 500 μg/ml. These results indicate that effect of fermented C.lanceolata improved memory deficit in scopolamine induced mouse and may suggest alternative agent for treatment of AD.
