The Mouse Defense Test Battery (MDTB) has been designed to investigate defensive responses of Swiss-Webster mice confronted with a natural predator, a rat. These behaviors include flight, avoidance, defensive threat/attack responses, and risk assessment activities. Previous studies with the MDTB have suggested that this model may have some utility for the(More)

The present study evaluated the ability of 8-OH-DPAT (0.05-10 mg/kg, SC, 5) and gepirone(More)
INTRODUCTION Cytokines are believed to play an important role in acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF). Extracorporeal liver support systems may exert beneficial effects in ACLF via removal of cytokines. At present, two systems are commercially available, the Molecular Adsorbent Recirculating System (MARS) and Fractionated Plasma Separation, Adsorption and(More)
