Inhibition of the bradykinin B2 receptor type (B2R) has been shown to improve neurological outcome in models of focal traumatic brain injury. However, the involvement of B2R in trauma-induced diffuse injury has not yet been explored. This is an important point, since in humans a pattern of diffuse injury is commonly found in severely injured patients and(More)
The Randall-Selitto paradigm (maximal tolerated pressure externally applied by a mechanical device) was used to develop a rat model of localized inflammatory hyperalgesia in order to compare the analgesic effects of bradykinin (BK) B1 and B2 receptor antagonists and of a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Intra-plantar injection of zymosan (12.5(More)
1. In the present study, we developed an experimental model of cystitis induced by cyclophosphamide (CYP). In order to characterize des-Arg9-BK-induced contraction on the urinary bladder (UB) during the development of inflammation and to quantify kinin B1 receptor gene expression using a quantitative RT - PCR technique. 2. In the presence of peptidase(More)
Despite many studies, the impact of ceramic particles on cell behavior remains unclear. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of nano-sized ceramic particles on fibroblastic cells. Fibroblasts (dermal fibroblasts freshly isolated from skin samples and WI26 fibroblastic cells) were cultured in a monolayer in the presence of alumina or(More)
