The influence of the oral administration of different doses of citalopram (5, 15 and 45 mg/kg), imipramine (15, 30, 45 and 60 mg/kg), nortriptyline (15, 45 and 60 mg/kg) and amineptine (45 mg/kg) on stress-induced analgesia has been studied in anaesthetized rats. None of the administered antidepressants seem to have appreciable analgesic activity when(More)
A series of 21 neuroleptics with different chemical structures (phenothiazines, thioxanthenes, dibenzodiazepines, butyrophenones, benzamides, etc.) was examined for their in vitro interactions with 12 neurotransmitter binding sites in the rat brain (alpha- and beta-noradrenergic, dopaminergic, muscarinic, serotoninergic, histaminic, and opioid receptors,(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess urinary and synovial concentrations of hydroxypyridinium crosslinks of collagen in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and osteoarthritis (OA) and to evaluate whether a combined measurement in the two compartments could give additional information about the origin of these compounds in joint diseases. METHODS Concentrations of(More)
Recent views on Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) question the accuracy of classification into axonal and demyelinating subtypes that represent convergent neurophysiological phenotypes rather than immunological targets. Instead it has been proposed to clarify the primarily affected fibre subunit in nerve biopsies. As nerve biopsies rarely are part of routine(More)
The relationship between the brain concentration of denzimol and its anticonvulsant activity was studied in mice after acute and repeated administration (14 days) of this drug to mice. Anticonvulsant activity was assessed against maximal electroshock seizures (MES). When denzimol was administered at 30 mg/kg p.o. to repeatedly treated mice, its brain(More)
The relationship between plasma, brain and cerebellum concentrations of Denzimol a new anticonvulsant agent, and its anticonvulsant and neurotoxic effects were studied in the rat. Sixty minutes after oral administration, a high brain/plasma concentration ratio of 10:1 was found. Mean plasma, brain and cerebellum half-lives of the drug were 8.4, 7.1 and 9.2(More)
