PURPOSE A "skin-CNS-bladder" reflex pathway for inducing micturition after spinal cord injury has been established in cat. This reflex pathway which is basically a somatic reflex arc with a modified efferent limb that passes somatic motor impulses to the bladder, has been designed to allow spinal cord injured patients to initiate voiding by scratching the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of glycyrrhizin (Gly) on human neutrophil elastase (HNE)- induced mucin (MUC) 5AC overproduction in human bronchial epithelial cells (16HBE), and the potential signaling pathway involved in this process. METHODS The cultured cells were divided into 3 groups: a control group, cultured in serum-free DMEM medium; an HNE(More)
The purpose of this study was to observe the effects of substance P (SP) on the contractile response of longitudinal muscle with myenteric plexus (LM-MP) of rat ileum induced by 5-HT in vitro and to analyse its mechanism. The results were as follows: (1) Subthreshold dose of SP (5 nmol/L) potentiated the 5-HT-induced contractile response; (2) Both [D-Pro2(More)
