Intrathecal injection of 0.25 micrograms of undecapeptide substance P antagonist (SPA) produced transient antinociception with a peak effect at 5 min. Increasing the SPA dose resulted in neurotoxicity. Intrathecal injection of the opioid peptide biphalin (BIP) produced antinociception for over 3 hrs without neurotoxicity. Co-administration of SPA (at(More)
The present study was undertaken to investigate the role of inducible nitric oxide synthase in a rat model of persistent pain. The effects of L-N6 (1-iminoethyl) lysine (L-NIL), a relatively potent and relatively selective inhibitor of inducible nitric oxide synthase, were investigated in carrageenan induced hyperalgesia L-NIL (0.1 microMole) injected(More)
Effects of substance P (SP) administered into anterior hypothalamus or lateral ventricle on body temperature were investigated. When administered into lateral ventricle in doses from 20 to 2000 ng SP failed to influence body temperature. Application of SP into anterior hypothalamus in the same doses (20-2000 ng) resulted in a mild but insignificant increase(More)
Pirolo [3,4-e] [1,4]-diazepine derivatives: 5-(2'-naphtyl) (7-phenyl-) 2, 3, 6, 8-tetrahydro)-pirolo-[3,4-e] [1,4]-diazepine-6-thiox-8-(1H,7H)-one (PD) and 5-(2'-naphtyl) 7-p-chlorophenyl-(2, 3, 6, 8-tetrahydro)-pirolo-[3,4-e] [1,4]-diazepine-6-thiox-8-(1H, 7H)-one (PDC1) show distinct analgesic properties, but no marked antiinflammatory activity in vivo.(More)
Synthesis of four new N,N-disubstituted derivatives of enkephalin analogs: All2Tyr-DMet-Gly-Phe-epsilon Ahx-OMe 5, Bu2Tyr-DMet-Gly-Phe-epsilon Ahx-OMe 6, All2Tyr-DMet-Gly-Phe-epsilon Ahx-epsilon Ahx-OMe 11 and Bu2Tyr-DMet-Gly-Phe-epsilon Ahx-epsilon Ahx-OMe 12 is reported. they were tested for agonistic and antagonistic activity. Compound 5 is a little more(More)
The effects of double endorphins DALA2, DYNO2, CASO2 on pain threshold in the rats were compared with those of DALA (D-Ala2-Met5-enkephalinamide). Marked differences in the analgesic potency of the investigated peptides were noted. The most potent analgesic effect was exerted by DALA2. DYNO2 was weaker than DALA and DALA2 due to lack of glycine residue in(More)
