Effects of chronic ibogaine treatment on cerebellar Purkinje cells in the rat

Abstract

The present investigation assessed the chronic toxicity of ibogaine on cerebellar Purkinje cells in male Fischer 344 rats. A behaviorally active dose of ibogaine (10 mg/kg, i.p.) was administered to a group of six subjects every other day for 60 days while the control group received an equivalent volume of saline (1 ml/kg). Estimates of Purkinje cell number were determined using the optical dissector/fractionator technique. No significant differences in Purkinje cell number were observed between the ibogaine (243764[+/-32766]) and control groups (230813[+/-16670]).
