Gangliosides antinociceptive effects in rodents.
It is suggested that gangliosides can reduce the exudative phenomena interfering with the membrane permeability of the nerve-endings breaking the vicious circle of the neurogenic mechanisms of plasma extravasation.
The analgesic activity of calcitonin and the central serotonergic system.
The results obtained confirm that the analgesic activity of sCT may involve central serotonergic pathway(s), and that the midbrain raphe nuclei 5-HT content is an important focus for this activity.
Synthesis and pharmacological study of a series of 3(2H)-pyridazinones as analgesic and antiinflammatory agents.
The synthesis and the pharmacological evaluation of some 3(2H)-pyridazinone derivatives showed a higher analgesic activity than phenylbutazone, while being devoid of ulcerogenic action.
Protective effects of calcitonin gene-related peptide in different experimental models of gastric ulcers.
Intravenous administration of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) prevented in a dose-dependent manner reserpine-induced gastric mucosal damage, but failed to affect the lesions produced by
Studies on annelated thiazolopyrimidines IV. Synthesis and pharmacological properties of thiazolothienopyrimidine derivatives
Abstract During our research on analgesic and anti-inflammatory active condensed heterocyclic compounds containing the pyrimidine ring, a number of thiazolothienopyrimidines was synthesized and
Adrenomedullin modulates COX-2 and HGF expression in reserpine-injuried gastric mucosa in the rat.
The results suggest that the inhibitory effect of adrenomedullin on the expression of HGF and COX-2 is mediated by CGRP receptors.
Grapefruit juice effects on the bioavailability of cyclosporin-A in rats.
It was demonstrated that rats may be suitable models for in vivo investigation of the interaction mechanism between grapefruit juice and cyclosporin-A in rats, and results confirm that grapefruit Juice may act as an inhibitor of drug metabolism altering the disposition of concomittantly administered CyP3A4 in rats.
Synthesis and pharmacological study of ethyl 1-methyl-5-[2-substituted-4-oxo-3(4H)-quinazolinyl]-1H-pyrazole-4-acetates
Abstract A number of new ethyl 1-methyl-5-[4-oxo-3(4 H )-quinazolinyl]-1 H -pyrazole-4-acetates substituted at the 2 position of the quinazolinone ring were prepared. The compounds were tested for
Synthesis and pharmacological study of some 3-(isoxazol-5-yl)-quinazolin-4(3H)-ones.
A number of new 3-(isoxazol-5-yl)-quinazolin-4(3H)-ones was prepared and tested for their analgesic, antipyretic and antiinflammatory activities, as well as for their acute toxicity and ulcerogenic effects.
Antiinflammatory activity of adrenomedullin in the acetic acid peritonitis in rats.
The data suggest that ADM exerts antiinflammatory activity in the model characterized by a vascular component, which involves CGRP receptors and appears to be mediated by nitric oxide system.
