90 patients with alcoholism stage II suffering from secondary affective disorders (anxiety, depression) were divided into 4 groups: treated with GABA-B-receptor ligand baclofen (group 1), with sibazon (group 2), amitriptylin (group 3), placebo (group 4). As shown by clinical, experimental psychological and electrophysiological examinations, baclofen is not(More)
Spontaneous superslow electrical brain activity and its changes were studied in acute experiments on curarized rabbits after administration of etimysol in doses of 1.0, 1.5 and 2.5 mg/kg. The effect of the drug persisted for three hours. Two oscillation phases were recorded in the medial group of mesencephalic reticular nuclei and the lateral nucleus of the(More)
90 alcoholic patients (II stage of alcoholism) with secondary affective disorders (anxiety, depression) were divided into 4 groups. The patients of the first group received the GABA receptor ligand baclofen during 3 weeks. Sybazon preparation was used in the second group, while the patients of the third group were treated with amitriptyline. Placebo was(More)
White rats were divided into water-preferring (WP) and ethanol-preferring (EP) groups, on the basis of their preferable drink: either water or 15% solution of ethanol. Each of these groups was then subdivided into groups which were given to drink for 1 year 15% solution of ethanol (ethanol-treated) or water (controls). Alcohol dehydrogenase/aldehyde(More)
Basic strategic and tactical principles of neuropharmacological studies are outlined, whose aim is to find and explore new synthetic neuro-blocking agents and substances simulating the structure of natural metabolites. The basic research has resulted in the development of new highly effective drugs and experimentally substantiated recommendations for their(More)
The time course of 14C-etimizol distribution in cell structures of the rat cerebral cortex was studied. Two minutes after intraperitoneal injection etimizol penetrates brain cells. At this time the greater portion of the drug is found in cytosol. In five minutes the maximal part of the label gets bound with cell nuclei and microsomal protein fraction(More)
The effect of IEM-611 (30 mg/kg) on alcohol consumption in rats under the conditions of voluntary choice between water and 15% ethanol was studied as that on alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) in postmitochondrial supernatant and in NAD-dependent aldehyde dehydrogenases (A1DH) in liver mitochondria. Administration of IEM-611 during 6 or 12 days reduces ethanol(More)
The two cAMP-independent protein kinases (PK I and PK II) were obtained from neuronal chromatin of rat brain. Nonhistone HMG-proteins were used as phosphorylation substrates. The possibility of antifeines direct action on PK II was revealed. Ethylnorantifeine and its demethylated analogues increased enzyme activity whereas allylnorantifeine decreased it.(More)
