1. The modulatory actions of nociceptin/orphanin FQ on excitatory synaptic transmission were studied in superficial dorsal horn neurones in transverse slices from 7 to 14 day old rats. 2. Glutamatergic excitatory postsynaptic currents (e.p.s.cs) were recorded from the somata of the neurones in the whole-cell patch-clamp configuration. E.p.s.cs were evoked(More)
The aims of this study were to investigate the dose-dependent effects of spinally delivered nociceptin (0.3, 1, 3.3 and 10 nmol) on flinching behaviour in the rat formalin test and whether these effects were influenced by the concomitant systemic administration of naloxone (3 mg/kg, i.p.). The effect of the highest nociceptin dose differed statistically(More)
Because distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAE) are the product of the effect of two sinus tones on the cochlea, a multitude of combinations regarding the amplitude and the frequency ratio of the primary tones exists. The goal of the present study was to directly compare different stimulus combinations described in the literature in the detection(More)
Nociceptin/orphanin FQ and nocistatin are two neuropeptides with opposing effects on spinal neurotransmission and nociception. Nociceptin/orphanin FQ selectively suppresses excitatory glutamatergic neurotransmission, while nocistatin selectively interferes with glycinergic and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-ergic transmission. Here, we performed whole-cell(More)
We studied the influence of an add-on medication with oxcarbazepine on the cyclosporine trough level in a kidney transplant recipient with pharmacoresistant epilepsy. Two weeks after the beginning of the trial we observed a decrease of the cyclosporine trough and the Na serum levels. Both could be corrected by a small-dose reduction of oxcarbazepine, an(More)
