Effects of Duzhong on striatum dopamine, DOPAC, and HVA levels in MPTP-treated mice. Striatum dopamine, DOPAC, and HVA levels were measured by HPLC-ECD. MPTP treatment significantly reduced striatal dopamine, DOPAC, and HVA levels. Duzhong treatment blocked the MPTP-induced decrease of striatal dopamine and its metabolites in a dose-dependent manner. ##p < 0.01 vs. control group, *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01 vs. MPTP group, n = 8 animals/group
