Trycyclic antidepressants are often effective in the management of neuropathic pains. To elucidate the mechanism of tricyclic-induced analgesia, amitriptyline and other drugs were injected into lightly anesthetized rats either systemically or via lumbar intrathecal cannulas. Analgesia was assessed by measuring the latency of the tail flick reflex. Using(More)
Vascular remodeling in adult human elastic pulmonary arteries is characterized by diffuse neointimal lesions containing smooth muscle cells expressing extracellular matrix genes. Recent studies suggest vascular injury is needed to initiate remodeling and that growth factor mediators participate in the repair response. However, because neointimal formation(More)
Primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH) is a disease characterized pathologically by pulmonary artery medial hypertrophy, adventitial thickening, and neointimal proliferation. Increasing recognition of the importance of remodeling to the pathogenesis of PPH suggests new therapeutic possibilities, but it will be necessary to (1) identify essential mediators of(More)
BACKGROUND We have demonstrated that inhibition of inducible nitric oxide synthase (NOS) ameliorated acute cardiac allograft rejection. This study determined the time course and cellular localization of inducible NOS expression during the histologic progression of unmodified acute rat cardiac allograft rejection. METHODS Tissue from syngeneic (ACI to ACI)(More)
