En cuanto al efecto de la asociacion ATV + MELOX, se observo una reduccion significativa en la reactividad astrocitaria tanto en la ZPV como en la CAl del hipocampo; sin embargo, este efecto modulador de la respuesta astroglial frente a la lesion se puede atribuir prioritariamente a la ATV, dado que por si sola logro un efecto similar al de la asociacion con MELOX, lo cual esta de acuerdo con los resultados de otros estudios en los que se sugiere que la ATV confiere neuroproteccion y favorece la plasticidad neuronal (18-20,22).
