Intravenous infusions of phenylephrine, noradrenaline, adrenaline, and isoprenaline were given to healthy human volunteers after five to seven days on phenelzine, tranylcypromine, or imipramine, and cardiovascular responses were compared with those observed under control conditions. With monoamine oxidase inhibitors there was a 2-2(1/2) fold potentiation of(More)
The beta-adrenoceptor blockers propranolol, PhQA33 and LB-46 exhibited appreciable activity against tremorine-(TMN) and oxotremorine-(OTMN) induced tremor, whereas pronethalol, (+)-H56/28, (-)-H56/28, Kö-592 and L(+)-INPEA possessed weak action. The two beta-blockers, namely D,L(+/-)-INPEA and D(-)-INPEA acted as weak tremorgens. None of the above compounds(More)
Rats received a single training trial on an inhibitory avoidance (passive avoidance) task and retention trials 24 hr (R-I) and 48 hr (R-II) later, in a special two-chambered apparatus, and the mean step-through latency was determined. The animals were given the drug, either pre-trial, pre-trial plus pre-retention, pre-retention or post-trial. Physostigmine(More)
Propranolol and phenoxybenzamine (PBZ) had no major effect on swimming-endurance performance and skeletal muscle pulling-strength in rats. Propranolol, like exercise itself diminished the resting skeletal muscle glycogen (SMG) content, but the drug did not lower the resting blood lactic acid (BLA) levels. Propranolol significantly antagonised the 25-min(More)
