Vardenafil plasma concentration was determined using liquid chromatography tandem mass(More)
The immune system and the neuroendocrine system are functionally interactive. Lymphocytes possess opioid receptors as well as growth hormone receptors (GHR) by which opioids and growth hormone (GH) may modulate immune functions. In this study, we have investigated the effects of morphine on [125I]hGH binding and GHR gene expression in human lymphoblastoid(More)
