Article abstract: Background: Current antiepileptic drugs are not able to prevent recurrent seizures in all patients. Orexins are excitatory hypothalamic neuropeptides that their receptors (OX1 and OX2) are found almost in all major regions of the brain. Pentylenetetrazol (PTZ)- induced kindling is a known experimental model for epileptic seizures. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of OX2 receptor antagonist (TCS OX2 29) on seizures and anxiety-like behaviors of PTZ-kindled rats. In this research we used orexin receptor type 2 antagonist intracerebroventricular injections to investigate its effect on the pentylenetetrazol-induced kindled seizures and anxiety behaviors in Wistar rats.
