The pharmacokinetic profiles of biperiden (BP) in blood and in specific brain regions were investigated in rats after acute i.v. administration. The regional brain-to-blood unbound concentration ratios (Kpf) were also determined after 16 h intravenous infusion of BP. The Kpf values ranged from 30 to 75 in the different brain regions and showed decreasing(More)
An in vivo receptor binding technique was applied to evaluate the affinities of risperidone and haloperidol for dopamine-D2 receptors (D2) and serotonin-5-HT2 receptors (5-HT2) in rat brain with [3H]YM-09151-2 and [3H]ketanserin as selective ligands. Radioactivities were obtained in the striatum frontal cortex, and cerebellum of the rats treated with the(More)
An in vivo receptor binding technique was used to evaluate the binding profiles of typical and atypical antipsychotic drugs to striatal dopamine-D2 and frontal serotonin-5-HT2 receptors in a rat brain using more specific ligands than those previously employed. [3H]-YM-09151-2 or [3H]-ketanserin was injected into the tail vein 10 minutes after administration(More)
Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is a disease closely associated with obesity and diabetes. A prevalence of type 2 diabetes and a high body mass index in cryptogenic cirrhosis may imply that obesity leads to cirrhosis. Here, we examined the effects of an extract of Ecklonia cava, a brown algae, on the activation of high glucose-induced hepatic stellate(More)
In vivo occupancy of dopamine-D1, D2 and serotonin-5-HT2 receptors by haloperidol 10 mg/kg and clozapine 20 mg/kg were studied. Rats were injected intravenously with [3H]-YM-09151-2, [3H]-SCH23390, or [3H]-ketanserin 10 min after the administration of the tested drugs. Fifteen to 240 min after the ligand injection, the receptor occupancy rates of the drugs(More)
