The effects of levodopa on the plasma concentration of 11-hydroxycorticosteroids and glucose were examined in mice. In fasted, nialamide treated mice, but not in fed mice, levodopa produced a significant decrease in the plasma concentration of 11-hydroxycorticosteroids. This was accompanied by a significant and marked decrease in the plasma glucose… (More)
In nialamide-treated, fasted mice levodopa produced a dose-dependent hypoglycaemic response. The response was also seen in pargyline-treated mice but not in animals which were not treated with a monoamine oxidase inhibitor. Dopamine did not affect plasma glucose under these conditons. In doses which were ineffective when injected i.v., both levodopa and… (More)

Protein and fat deficiency diet produced significant reduction of Giardia cysts in rats, while vitamin A, D and iron deficiency diet had no effect on cyst count. On the other hand pathological changes due to Giardia infection encountered in small intestine and liver were aggravated by the diet deficiency induced.
Several new 1-substituted 3,5-dimethylpyrazoles were prepared for testing as hypoglycemic agents. A number of these containing para-substituted 1-carbonylphenylurea and para-substituted 1-carbamoylbenzenesulfonylurea derivatives were found to possess potent hypoglycemic activity.
