The effect of SKF 38393 (1-phenyl-7,8-diol-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-1H-3-benzazepine), a specific dopamine D1-receptor agonist, was studied on pylorus-ligation and water immersion plus restraint stress-induced gastric ulcers, and cysteamine-induced duodenal ulcers in rats. Repeated administration of SKF 38393 (5 and 10 mg kg-1, p.o.) for six days was found to be(More)
The gastric and duodenal anti-ulcer activity of sulpiride, a dopamine D2 receptor antagonist, was studied on various types of experimentally induced ulcers in rats, viz., pylorus ligation and water immersion + restraint stress-induced gastric ulcers, gastric mucosal damage induced by nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and reserpine, and duodenal ulcers(More)
Traditionally drugs used in peptic ulcer have been directed mainly against a single luminal damaging agent i.e. hydrochloric acid and a plethora of drugs like antacids, anticholinergics, histamine H2-antagonists etc. have flooded the market. An increase in 'aggressive' factors like acid and pepsin is found only in a minority of peptic ulcer patients. These(More)
There are conflicting reports about the role of dopamine in gastric and duodenal ulcers. This investigation was undertaken to characterize the specific subtypes of dopamine receptor involved in gastric and duodenal ulceration. Administration of dopamine D1 agonist fenoldopam and dopamine D2 antagonist sulpiride elicited a significant decrease in acid(More)
