The administration of methamphetamine (METH; 10mg/kg, i.p.) to male ICR mice induced bizarre behaviors including persistent locomotion and stereotypical behaviors, which were classified into four categories: stereotypical head-bobbing, circling, sniffing, and biting. Pretreatment with l-histidine (750 mg/kg, i.p.) significantly decreased the stereotypical(More)
Pseudomonas aeruginosa has been a major bacterial partner when MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) is isolated clinically. Hence, we studied the in vitro combined effect of fosfomycin (FOM) plus sulbactam/cefoperazone (SBT/CPZ) against mixed infections of MRSA and P. aeruginosa. The combined effect of FOM plus SBT/CPZ was observed through an(More)
The anti-endotoxin activity of mouse monoclonal IgM antibody E5 was determined against various lipopolysaccharides (LPSs) derived from Escherichia coli J5, E. coli O111:B4, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa by measuring limulus activity by endospecy method. In general, above 0.2 microgram/ml of E5 reduced almost dose-dependently the limulus(More)
