The behaviour of fuels (glycogen, glucose), of glycolytic pathway intermediates (glucose-6-phosphate, pyruvate) and end-product (lactate), as well as the pool of labile phosphates (ATP, ADP, AMP, creatine phosphate) and the energy charge of the brain were studied in the motor area of the cerebral cortex of beagle dogs. These parameters were evaluated both after various hypoxic conditions (hypoxic hypoxia, hypoxia plus complete or incomplete ischemia) and after 3, 15 or 30 min of post-hypoxic recovery and recirculation. The effect of some drugs (papaverine, UDP-glucose, (-)eburnamonine, suloctidil) following intracarotid perfusion has been evaluated in the various quoted experimental conditions. The tested drugs proved unable to improve the deranged brain metabolism under all the hypoxic conditions. On the contrary, an activating effect of suloctidil and (-)eburnamonine could be observed during the recovery after both hypoxia and hypoxia plus complete ischemia, papaverine being ineffective and UDP-glucose increasing the glycogen synthesis. The drugs proved unable to induce a restitution of the altered brain metabolism after hypoxia plus incomplete ischemia
