The patch clamp technique is widely utilized for studying the electrophysiological properties of enzymatically isolated sensory neurons. Unfortunately, dissociation of the ganglion severs the afferent fibers. As a result, isolated neurons can only be broadly categorized according to somatic action potential waveforms, ion channel subtypes, chemical(More)
Recent studies have shown that cimetidine, burimamide and improgan (also known as SKF92374, a cimetidine congener lacking H2 antagonist activity) induce antinociception after intracerebroventricular administration in rodents. Because these substances closely resemble the structure of histamine (a known mediator of some endogenous analgesic responses), yet(More)
A recent study showed that SKF92374, a structural analog of the histamine H2 receptor antagonist cimetidine, induces antinociception after intraventricular (i.v.t.) administration in the rat. SKF92374 lacked significant activity on H1 or H2 receptors, but had weak activity on H3 receptors. To test the hypothesis that SKF92374-induced antinociception is(More)
In this paper, we compared the mean response time of distributed and hierarchical Web-caching architectures by utilizing an analytical model. The analytical model uses simplifying assumptions for distributed and hierarchical caching systems such that they can be defined using a birth-death model. The analytical results show that the mean response time in(More)
AIM The kinetic changes of catecholamine content in the brain and lymphoid organ of rats during the antibody response were investigated in order to know the effect of immune condition on the activity of catecholaminergic nerve in central and peripheral nervous system. METHODS Rats were immunized with sheep red blood cells (SRBC). During the days 2-7 after(More)
