Previous studies have suggested that the effects of contingent (response dependent) and noncontingent (response independent) cocaine administration may differ, which could limit the generality and validity of laboratory studies that use only noncontingent administration. Therefore, two separate three-component multiple schedules of operant responding were(More)
Plasma levels of 13,14-dihydro-15-keto-PGE2, a stable derivative of PGE2, are elevated in rats with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and decrease in response to insulin therapy. In patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus type I (IDDM) the plasma levels of this derivative also rise in response to insulin withdrawal and then fall in response to insulin(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To compare the relative efficacy, risks, and benefits of insulin with glyburide in achieving normoglycemia in non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. DESIGN Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial with a 9-month treatment period. SETTING University hospital. PATIENTS Thirty-one patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes(More)
We studied two obese type II diabetic patients before, during, and after 3 yr of continuous iv insulin infusion, delivered by means of totally implanted insulin infusion pumps. Tolerance of the devices was excellent, and no side-effects or episodes of significant hypoglycemia occurred. Glycosuria was eliminated, and mean 24-h plasma glucose and hemoglobin(More)
Six rhesus monkeys responding under a three-component multiple schedule were administered haloperidol to determine its effects on cocaine self-administration and on cocaine's disruptive effects on the repeated acquisition and performance of response chains. In the absence of haloperidol, 0.0032-0.032 mg/kg/infusion of cocaine increased response rate and the(More)
We compared continuous basal-rate intravenous insulin infusion, delivered by means of a totally implantable pump, to two types of conventional insulin administration in patients with type II (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes in a prospective crossover trial. Ten patients entered the study, and 5 completed all three 8-mo study periods. When results from the(More)
