An ischemic cerebral affection zone amounting to 22.51 +/- 3.0% of the ipsilateral hemisphere volume was found on the frontal brain sections in the frontoparietal cortex of rats 72 h after occlusion of the distal branch of the medial cerebral artery. The new nootropic drug nooglutyl [N-(5-hydroxynicotinoyl)-L-glutamic acid] in a dose of 10 mg/kg, as well as(More)
Using microdialysis, extracellular 3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA), noradrenaline (NA) and adrenaline (AD) concentrations in the adrenal gland were monitored in conscious rats during and after 60 min of immobilization (IMM) as well as after injection of 500 mg kg(-1) 2-deoxyglucose (2-DG). IMM produced a rapid and transient increase in secretion of AD(More)
Experiments were performed on the model of irreversible myocardial ischemia in Wistar rats. Coenzyme Q10 was injected intravenously 10 min after coronary artery occlusion. On day 21 after myocardial infarction the content of coenzyme Q10 in the left ventricle, liver, and plasma from animals of the treatment group was higher than that in untreated rats by(More)
The neuroprotective effect of ubiquinone (coenzyme Q10)was demonstrated on the rats model of ischemic stroke provoked by persistent 24-h occlusion of the middle cerebral artery. Coenzyme Q10 (30 mg/kg) was injected intravenously in 60 min after artery occlusion. Ubiquinone crossed the blood-brain barrier, accumulated in the brain, and produced a(More)
The long-term (4 weeks) administration of estradiol (15 μg/kg/day) to ovariectomized female Wistar rats induced hypoxic pulmonary hypertension and significantly (p<0.05) diminished relaxation of perfused serotonin-preconstricted isolated vascular segments of the pulmonary artery in response to estradiol (10−6 M). At the same time, the isolated segments of(More)
Physostigmine and an 1-hour immobilisation stress similarly affected functions of the sympatho-adrenal and cardiovascular systems activating the catecholamine secretion and increasing the blood pressure. Yohimbine potentiated the secretory effect but did not change the pressor effect. Intermediate administration of atropine completely eliminated both(More)
The influence of chronic stress (footshock combined with randomized light flashes) on acute stress-induced (immobilization) release of noradrenaline, dopamine and serotonin in rat lateral hypothalamus was assessed by microdialysis. The chronic stress resulted in an increase and prolongation of the acute stress-induced release of noradrenaline but not of(More)
