These experiments were designed to test the hypothesis that the TxA2 mimetic, U46,619, would stimulate group III and IV afferent nerve endings from the hindlimb of the anesthetized cat. Nerve impulses were recorded from the dorsal rootlets of the L7-S1 segments of the spinal cord, and afferent units identified by measurement of conduction velocities,(More)
We have reported tablet-induced focal esophagitis and esophageal stricture formation in cats. The proposed mechanism is thought to be abnormal esophageal tablet retention resulting in focal esophagitis with subsequent stricture formation. The objective of this study was to evaluate the passage of tablets and capsules when given alone (dry swallow) and when(More)
