  • 1998
CGRP, SP, and NKA receptor antagonists are powerful pharmacological tools to inhibit neurogenic inflammation at the postjunctional level and have a bearing on chronic inflammatory disease. Expand

  • 1 April 1998
The pathophysiological potential of the neural emergency system is best portrayed by the gastric hyperemic response to acid backdiffusion, which is signaled by afferent nerve fibers and creates favorable conditions for rapid restitution and healing of the wounded mucosa. Expand

  • 2009
Emerging evidence indicates that many of the acid-sensitive ion channels and receptors play a role in acid sensing, acid-induced pain and acid-evoked feedback regulation of homeostatic reactions, and that acid-base regulation is a vital issue for cell and tissue homeostasis. Expand
Neuropeptide Y, peptide YY and pancreatic polypeptide in the gut–brain axis
The findings underscore the important role of the NPY-Y receptor system at several levels of the gut–brain axis in which NPY, PYY and PP operate both as neural and endocrine messengers. Expand
Cognitive impairment by antibiotic-induced gut dysbiosis: Analysis of gut microbiota-brain communication
Emerging evidence indicates that disruption of the gut microbial community (dysbiosis) impairs mental health. Germ-free mice and antibiotic-induced gut dysbiosis are two approaches to establishExpand
Tachykinins in the gut. Part I. Expression, release and motor function.
It would seem conceivable, therefore, that tachykinin agonists and antagonists are adjuncts to the treatment of motor disorders that involve pathological disturbances of the gastrointestinal tachyKinin system. Expand
Neuropeptides and the microbiota-gut-brain axis.

  • 2014
Although the impact of neuropeptides on the interaction between the gut microbiota and brain awaits to be analysed, biologically active peptides are likely to emerge as neural and endocrine messengers in orchestrating the microbiota-gut-brain axis in health and disease. Expand
