Nurr1 expression is up-regulated in the brain following associative learning experiences, but its relevance to cognitive processes remains unclear. In these studies, rats initially received bilateral hippocampal infusions of control or antisense oligodeoxynucleotides (ODNs) 1 h prior to training in a holeboard spatial discrimination task. Such pre-training(More)
The effect of cimetidine on oxidative drug metabolism was characterised using antipyrine clearance in a group of healthy volunteers. In six subjects cimetidine produced a dose dependent reduction of antipyrine clearance: 400 mg/day (16.8 +/- 2.2%, mean +/- s.e. mean), 800 mg/day (26.3 +/- 1.5%) and 1600 mg/day (33.5 +/- 2.4%). The effect of cimetidine (800(More)
Hepatic enzyme induction has been reported to increase lignocaine binding, alpha 1-acid glycoprotein concentration and high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. In eight volunteers treated with rifampicin for 3 weeks there was no significant alteration in these three variables although their antipyrine clearance was significantly increased. In 10 patients(More)
