Radioligand binding studies have demonstrated that oxymetazoline has a high affinity for alpha-2A receptors, but lower affinities for alpha-2B and alpha-2C receptors. In contrast, prazosin has high affinity for alpha-2B and alpha-2C receptors, but relatively lower affinity for alpha-2A receptors. We exploited the respective selectivity of oxymetazoline and(More)

The reduction in neuropeptide Y appeared to be greatest in a subgroup of victims of suicide for which there was indirect evidence of histories of(More)
