is there anybody who knows which company sells the
NMDA antagonist Dizocilpine/MK-801 ?

This substance protects neurons from
glutamate damage by blocking Ca-channels.
In Germany, this drug is not listed in the
"Rote Liste". I found out that it is/was tested by
Merck (called Neurogard). But a search on their
website did not produce any results.

I want to use it for research only (neuronal cell cultures).

Maybe anybody knows about a similar drug easier to get?

Thank you for any help,
