The present study evaluated the role of nitric oxide (NO) in the transfer latency (TL) paradigm in the elevated plus-maze. Male Wistar rats received i.p. injections of either 0.9% Saline, N(omega) Nitro-L-arginine-methyl-ester (L-NAME, an inhibitor of NO synthesis), d-NAME (inert isomer), scopolamine (SCO, antagonist of muscarinic receptors), or MK-801(More)
The immunomodulatory effects of vitamin D have been extensively studied in the context of autoimmunity. Multiple studies have demonstrated a high prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in autoimmune diseases. Recently, a possible protective role of vitamin D in autoimmunity has been described; however, this function remains controversial. Few studies have(More)
This study was conducted to determine whether the atypical opioid analgesic tramadol inhibits the contractility of isolated non-pregnant human myometrium. Ten strips of non-pregnant human myometrium stimulated with 55 mm potassium chloride (KCl) were treated with three concentrations (30, 100 and 300 μm) of tramadol to test for any inhibitory effect of(More)
This study investigated the ability of the antihypertensive drug minoxidil to inhibit potassium chloride (KCl)-induced contractility of the isolated human myometrium. Twelve strips of myometrium obtained from 12 patients who underwent hysterectomy were triggered to contract with 55 mM KCl before and after incubation with 3 concentrations (1, 3 and 10(More)
