Beta-endorphin (4 micrograms) injected i.v.t. induced the release of immunoreactive [Met5]enkephalin and sulfated cholecystokinin octapeptide (CCK-8s) from the spinal cord in the pentobarbital-anesthetized rat. The inhibition of the tail-flick response induced by beta-endorphin given i.v.t. was antagonized by i.t. injection of CCK-8s and potentiated by i.t.(More)
Autoantibodies directed against endogenous proteins including contractile proteins and endothelial antigens are frequently detected in patients with heart failure and after heart transplantation. There is evidence that these autoantibodies contribute to cardiac dysfunction and correlate with clinical outcomes. Currently, autoantibodies are detected in(More)
