Abuse of Δ⁹-THC by females during adolescence may produce long-term deficits in complex behavioral processes such as learning, and these deficits may be affected by the presence of ovarian hormones. To assess this possibility, 40 injections of saline or 5.6 mg/kg of Δ⁹-THC were administered i.p. daily during adolescence to gonadally intact or ovariectomized(More)
This study examined whether chronic Δ(9)-THC during early adulthood would produce the same hormonally-dependent deficits in learning that are produced by chronic Δ(9)-THC during adolescence. To do this, either sham-operated (intact) or ovariectomized (OVX) female rats received daily saline or 5.6 mg/kg of Δ(9)-THC i.p. for 40 days during early adulthood.(More)
Marijuana abuse during adolescence may alter its abuse liability during adulthood by modifying the interoceptive (discriminative) stimuli produced, especially in females due to an interaction with ovarian hormones. To examine this possibility, either gonadally intact or ovariectomized (OVX) female rats received 40 intraperitoneal injections of saline or 5.6(More)
The excretions of two metabolites of nicotinic acid, N1-methylnicotinamide and N1-methyl-2-pyridone-5-carboxamide have been measured at varying times after injury in a group of 27 burned or scalded children. Compared with control patients the excretions of both of these metabolites were significantly raised after injury, which suggests that the utilisation(More)
Reports of the beneficial effects of large doses of ascorbic acid have stressed its water solubility and non-toxic properties. In this study male guinea pigs, dosed with 150 mg twice daily, ascorbic acid, demonstrated no differences in effect on liver weight, body weight or hepatic total protein when compared with controls. The activities of NADPH-dependent(More)
Base-line values for the excretion of urea N, amine N, creatinine, uric acid and cysteine were measured in three consecutive 24-h urine collections from 16 healthy volunteers. The subjects then took 1 g ascorbic acid three times a day after meals for 7 days. Twenty-four hour urine samples were collected on the 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th days of the study. Where(More)
1. Ascorbic acid deficiency results in a reduction in the activity of the hepatic mixed function oxidase systems in the guinea-pig. In this study, male Dunkin-Hartley guinea-pigs were given 0, 50, 100, 200 or 300 mg ascorbic acid/d in two equal doses in buffered sucrose solution (200 g/l) for 4 d. Controls received an equal volume of sucrose solution. 2. A(More)
The effects of hormone status and age on the development of tolerance to Δ(9)-THC were assessed in sham-operated (intact) or ovariectomized (OVX) female rats that received either intraperitoneal saline or 5.6 mg/kg of Δ(9)-THC daily from postnatal day (PD) 75-180 (early adulthood onward) or PD 35-140 (adolescence onward). During this time, the four groups(More)
