Epileptic seizures constitute an important problem in pediatric neurology during the developmental period. The frequency and nosological significance of seizures, as well as their association with epileptogenesis, may be related to underlying mechanisms such as neuroinflammation. Those mechanisms of response activate inflammatory molecules induced in the neurons, activated glial cells and endothelial cells via the key HMGB1/TLR4 pathway. In this study, the drug celecoxib (CCX) was used as a blocker of the cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2) and HMGB1/TLR-4 pathways. The experimental model was implemented in 10-day-old neonatal Sprague Dawley rats to induce recurrent seizures with kainic acid (KA, 1.4 mg/kg). Data were evaluated at early (14 PND) and late (30 PND) time points. The results showed that the CCX and CCX + pentobarbital (PB) groups exhibited a protective effect by significantly increasing the time latency of seizures compared to the KA group at both early (p
