Application

Pentoxifylline has been used:
  • used in the combinatorial treatment with itraconazole for paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM)
  • to treat harvested sperms to check the effect of ′pentoxifylline exposed sperms′ in the contribution of embryonic growth
  • to intrathecally inject female and male mice to investigate whether astrocytes and microglia could be causally involved in the maintenance of pain-like behaviour
