After injection of (15,16-3H)naltrexone (10 mg/kg s.c.) in male Wistar rats, peak concentrations of drug occurred in brain and plasma within 0.5 hr. Levels of naltrexone were sustained in brain between 2 and 24 hr and were barely detectable at 48 hr. Significant amounts of metabolities were present in brain and plasma at longer time periods. The t1/2 of(More)
Phencyclidine (PCP) given to male Wistar rats produced hyperactivity and various stereotypic motor behaviors. Methadone, apomorphine, and naloxone were tested for their effects on PCP-induced stereotypy. Methadone (0.5 mg/kg) had no effect on the hyperactivity produced by PCP, but significantly attenuated PCP-induced stereotypy when given both before and(More)
The effects of cocaine and pseudococaine on the EEGs, heart and respiratory rates, and self-administration behavior were studied in rhesus monkeys. An intravenous injection of cocaine (2.5 and 4.0 mg/kg) in the monkey produced low-voltage fast waves (LVFWs) in the EEGs and behavioral hyperexcitation accompanied by marked increases in the heart and(More)
When 3H-etorphine was administered to rats in a pharmacologically effective dose (0.75 mug/kg intracisternally), the labeled drug was concentrated in synaptic membrane fractions isolated from the brains of rats killed 10 min after etorphine injection. Pretreatment of the animals with the narcotic antagonists naloxone, diprenorphine or l-cyclorphan, blocked(More)
