The cardiovascular effects of the deproteinized blood extract were investigated in anaesthetized dogs: respiration, general metabolism and systemic haemodynamics were tested and the changes in these parameters after the administration of the drug were studied. At 2 ml kg-1 i.v., the deproteinized blood extract induced a transient drop in arterial blood(More)
Experiments were carried out on isolated rabbit hearts: PG biosynthesis was induced by administration into the coronary circulation of a single dose of arachidonic acid (100 micrograms) and the PGs synthesized and released in the heart effluent were detected by bioassays. Total flavonoids (TF) extracted from Ribes nigrum leaves and their 2 major components,(More)
Experiments were carried out on non-working isolated rabbit hearts perfused by Tyrode solution: the effects of Taurine introduced into the coronary circulation were studied on the biosynthesis of the anti-thromboxane synthetase factor ("FATS") and on the TXA2 and PGI2 synthetase activities of cardiac tissue. The effects of Taurine were simultaneously(More)
A strain of genetically obese-hypertensive rats (SHR-fa/fa) was created by transferring the fatty/fa gene of hyperlipaemic obese non-inbred rats into the genome of an SHR inbred strain by five successive crossings of SHR-fa+ brother-sister matings. SHR-fa/fa rats were heavier than their SHR littermates. They showed a severe hypertension, their systolic(More)
Experiments carried out under the conditions adopted showed the strong affinity of aminopyridazine derivatives for the eicosanoids TXA2 and PGI2. But this affinity depended on the chemical structure of the molecule: a small change in the radical grafted onto the pyridazine ring could completely modify the pharmacological activity of the molecule.(More)
The cardiovascular activity of 9-hydroxy-ellipticine (9-OH-E) has been studied on anaesthetized dogs. The drug has been administered intravenously in one dose ranging from 1 to 10 mg/kg. The variations in the myocardial contractility, the systemic haemodynamics, the respiration and the general metabolism of the anaesthetized dogs were studied to make(More)
The effects of 3-dimethylamino 5-(3' trifluoromethylbenzylidene) 6-methyl (4H)-pyridazine (PC88) on the biosynthesis of PGI2, using horse aorta microsomes as a source of enzyme and arachidonic acid as a substrate, were investigated. Under the experimental conditions adopted, PC88 was shown to dose-dependently inhibit PGI2 biosynthesis (ID50 = 6.9 x 10(-4) M(More)
