1-(5-[[(2R,3S)-2-([(1R)-1-[3,5-Bis(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]ethyl]oxy)-3-(4-fluorophenyl)morpholin-4-yl]methyl]-2H-1,2,3-triazol-4-yl)-N,N-dimethylmethanamine hydrochloride 3 is a high affinity, orally active, h-NK(1) receptor antagonist with a long central duration of action and a solubility in water of >100 mg/mL. The construction of the(More)
Behavioural responses to tachykinins were observed following intracisternal administration in mice. The synthetic NK-3 agonists senktide and L-363,851 caused behaviour typically associated with serotonergic stimulation, including head twitches, reciprocal forepaw treading and hindlimb splaying. Neurokinin B produced some features of the serotonin (5-HT)(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the comprehensibility, reliability, and validity of a trait measure, the Generalized Self-Efficacy Scale (GSES), among people with arthritis. The scale is designed to measure perceived coping ability across a wide range of demanding situations. METHODS Four studies were conducted. Study 1 tested the comprehensibility of the GSES.(More)
Tachykinin binding sites in guinea pig urinary bladder (GPUB), rat salivary gland (RSG), hamster urinary bladder (HUB), rat vas deferens (RVD) and rat cerebral cortex (RCC) were compared using 125I-Bolton Hunter conjugates of substance P (125I-BHSP), eledoisin (125I-BHE) and neurokinin A (125I-BHNKA). In typical SP-P tissues (GPUB, RSG) and in RCC, SP was(More)
The aim of this study was to determine whether the Arthritis Self-Management Programme (ASMP) is effective in promoting perceived control and self-management ability when delivered in an adult education setting. The study was a pre-test-post-test design based on a sample of 89 people attending an ASMP. Data were collected by self-administered questionnaires(More)
Noonan syndrome (NS) is among the most common nonchromosomal disorders affecting development and growth. NS is caused by aberrant RAS-MAPK signaling and is genetically heterogeneous, which explains, in part, the marked clinical variability documented for this Mendelian trait. Recently, we and others identified SOS1 as a major gene underlying NS. Here, we(More)
Symptoms consistent with cardiac disease have been noted as part of the syndrome of lead (Pb) intoxication. All types of cardiotoxicity noted in patients have been reproduced in experimental animals exposed acutely to high concentrations of Pb, or chronically exposed to lower levels. Types of cardiac effects observed include negative inotropism and(More)
1. The anticonvulsant and behavioural effects of the glycine/NMDA receptor partial agonist, L-687,414 (R(+)-cis-beta-methyl-3-amino-1-hydroxypyrrolid-2-one) have been investigated in rodents. 2. L-687,414 dose-dependently antagonized seizures induced by N-methyl-D,L- aspartic acid (NMDLA, ED50 = 19.7 mg kg-1), pentylenetetrazol (PTZ, ED50 = 13.0 mg kg-1)(More)
Research literature, based largely on studies conducted in the USA and Australia, suggests that rural and urban residents differ on health status variables. This assumption was examined in an exploratory study conducted in the UK. The experience of arthritis in rural communities was explored through interviews and comparisons were made between rural and(More)
