We investigated the effects of multiple (21 x) ifenprodil (1.0 mg/kg, i.p.)-[IF] and spermidine (5.0 mg/kg, i.p.)-[SP] administration on short-term memory using the social recognition test in rats. The influence of a single (lx) injection of IF and SP was also established. 1x IF or SP treatment showed a statistically insignificant tendency to impair social(More)
Multiple (10x) treatment of zolpidem (1.0 or 2.0 mg/kg, orally, p.o.) led to different effects in chronically ethanol-treated and control rats. In control rats, after repeated zolpidem administration, a weaker, when compared to single administration, hypnotic effect of ethanol was observed, which may be the result of tolerance developed towards the(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of multiple acamprosate (500.0 mg/kg, p.o.) administration on short-term memory, using the social recognition test in rats. Ifenprodil (1.0 mg/kg, i.p.), arcaine (5.0 mg/kg, i.p.) and spermidine (20.0 mg/kg, i.p.) were chosen as polyamine ligands and their action or interaction with acamprosate was also(More)
Rosmarinus officinalis L. leaf as part of a diet and medication can be a valuable proposal for the prevention and treatment of dementia. The aim of the study was to assess the effects of subchronic (28-fold) administration of a plant extract (RE) (200 mg/kg, p.o.) on behavioral and cognitive responses of rats linked with acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and(More)
AIMS The purpose of this study was to assess the anxiolytic activity of ifenprodil in Warsaw high-preferring (WHP) and low-preferring (WLP) rats after chronic ethanol treatment. METHODS WHP and WLP animals, their paired-ethanol-naive groups and control Wistar rats were treated with ifenprodil (1.0 mg/kg, intraperitoneally) for 21 consecutive days.(More)
There are a number of compounds that can modify the activity of ABC (ATP-binding cassette) and SLC (solute carrier) transporters in the blood-brain barrier (BBB). The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of natural and synthetic substances on the expression level of genes encoding transporters present in the BBB (mdr1a, mdr1b, mrp1, mrp2,(More)
There is a hypothesis that ghrelin could take part in the central effects of alcohol as well as function as a peripheral indicator of the changes which occur during long-term alcohol consumption. The aim of this study was to determine a correlation between alcohol concentration and acylated and total form of ghrelin after a single administration of alcohol(More)
It is claimed that application of botanical supplements or herbal medicinal products with synthetic drugs that are cytochrome P450 enzymes substrates may induce significant herb-drug interactions and may alter pharmacotherapy. Echinacea preparations are one of the best selling products in the Europe and their medicinal use is still increasing but data about(More)
The new derivative of well-known triterpene, oleanolic acid: methyl 3-octanoyloxyiminoolean-12-en-28-oate 5, was synthesized by the action of caprylic acid on methyl oleanolate 3-oxime in the presence of dicyclohexylcarbodiimide in dioxane. The molecular structure of the obtained product 5 was confirmed by spectral methods. The acute toxicity, locomotor(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate possible interactions between the analgesic activity of ketamine (an N-methyl-D-aspartate antagonist), midazolam (a benzodiazepine derivative) and morphine using the tail-flick test in rats. Animals were treated s.c. with ketamine (1.0-10.0 mg/kg), midazolam (0.3 mg/kg), or morphine (0.6 mg/kg) alone. or in(More)
