The anticonvulsant gabapentin (GBP) has been shown effective for the treatment of neuropathic pain, although its mechanism of action remains unclear. A recent report has suggested that binding to the alpha(2)delta subunit of voltage-gated calcium channels contributes to its antinociceptive effect, based on the stereoselective efficacy of two analogs:(More)
Celiprolol given intravenously (i.v.) to pithed rats in the dose range of 0.1-10,000 micrograms/g produced a dose-dependent increase in heart rate (HR) which was greatest (123 beats/min) at 1,000-3,000 micrograms/kg. This partial agonist effect was blocked by the selective beta 1-adrenoceptor antagonist CGP 20712A. Celiprolol also produced a vasodepressor(More)
