3-Methoxy-4-hydroxyphenylglycol (MHPG) is the major metabolite of norepinephrine (NE) in the rat brain. A single injection of tremorigenic doses of chlordecone to adult male Fischer-344 rats resulted in significant increases in MHPG concentrations in hypothalamus, brain stem, cerebellum, and caudate nucleus. The increase in MHPG was accompanied by a(More)
Male, Fischer strain 344 adult rats were given various doses (25-100 mg/kg) of p,p'-DDT by oral gavage, and levels of biogenic amines, their metabolites, and amino acid neurotransmitters, tremor activity, and rectal temperature were measured at several intervals (2, 5, 12, and 24 h) after dosing. Dose-related increases in rectal temperature and in tremor(More)
Meloxicam is a cyclooxygenase (COX) inhibitor with a higher selectivity for cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) than for cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1). In the laboratory setting, this nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) is commonly selected for analgesia in mice and administered every 24 h. This study characterizes the plasma concentration achieved from a dose of(More)
Oral administration of 120 or 240 mg/kg permethrin produced dose- and time-related tremor in rats with the peak effect occurring 5 hrs after dosing. Subsequent experiments done 5 hrs postdosing found that 45 to 180 mg/kg permethrin produced dose-related increases in rectal temperature and enhanced responsiveness to an acoustic stimulus. Tremor was detected(More)
