The present study was designed to investigate the putative effect of vitexin, a flavone C-glucoside present in some drugs, medicinal plants and nutraceuticals, on the central nervous system. Vitexin (10-30 mg/kg) did not show significant alterations in the behaviour of mice tested in hole-board, plus-maze or activity cage tests. However, immobility time of(More)
This study used various experimental pain methods to investigate the effects of subacute mianserin administration on diabetes-induced neuropathic pain in rats. The effect of mianserin on hyperalgesia occurring in connection with peripheral diabetic neuropathy was examined using the Randall-Selitto (mechanical nociceptive stimulus), Hargreaves (thermal(More)
In an effort to develop potent antidepressant agents, new pyrazoline derivatives 2a-s were synthesized and evaluated for their antidepressant-like activity by tail suspension test (TST) and modified forced swimming test (MFST). The effects of the compounds on spontaneous locomotor activity were also investigated using an activity cage apparatus. Among these(More)
In the current work, new 1,3,4-thiadiazole derivatives were synthesized and investigated for their antinociceptive effects on nociceptive pathways of nervous system. The effects of these compounds against mechanical, thermal and chemical stimuli were evaluated by tail-clip, hot-plate and acetic acid-induced writhing tests, respectively. In addition,(More)
Brown tumors are focal bone lesions, encountered in patients with uncontrolled hyperparathyroidism. They can be located in any part of the skeleton. Clinically significant lesions in the craniofacial bones are rare. Craniofacial involvement may cause facial disfiguration and compromise social ease of the patient and normal functions, such as chewing,(More)
AIMS This study was planned to examine the antinociceptive efficacy of agomelatine against acute mechanical, thermal, and chemical nociceptive stimuli, as well as to determine the opioid receptor subtypes mediating these effects. MAIN METHODS Tail-clip, hot-plate, and acetic acid-induced writhing tests were performed to evaluate anti-nociceptive effect.(More)
Agomelatine is an antidepressant with a distinct pharmacological mechanism of action as an MT1 and MT2 receptor agonist and as a 5-HT2C receptor antagonist. We evaluated the chronic effects of agomelatine administration (40 mg/kg, 20 weeks) on the cognitive performance of rats in the Morris water maze task. We applied unbiased stereological quantification(More)
In the present study, new 4-[4-[2-(2-(4-substituted benzylidene)hydrazinyl)-2-oxoethoxy]phenyl]-4-oxobutanoic acid derivatives were synthesized, and their anti-nociceptive and anti-inflammatory activities were investigated. In the synthesis of the compounds, 4-[4-(2-ethoxy-2-oxoethoxy)phenyl]-4-oxobutanoic acid molecule was used as starting material. The(More)
In this study, we synthesized eight novel 1-phenyl-2-(4-substituted-piperazin-1-yl)-propanol derivatives and evaluated their antidepressant-like activities. The chemical structures of the synthesised compounds were elucidated by spectroscopy and elemental analyses. Potential antidepressant-like effects of the test compounds (20 mg kg(-1)) were investigated(More)
This study was designed to evaluate the potential antinociceptive activities of some triazole–pyrazoline derivatives. All of the test compounds (100 mg/kg) increased the reaction times of mice in hotplate and tail–clip tests and decreased the total licking times of animals at both phases of formalin test. Compounds 3a, 3b, and 3c were more potent than the(More)
