Rapid opioid withdrawal induced by naltrexone is now used as a treatment for heroin addiction. The alpha2-adrenoceptor agonist, clonidine, is currently used in clinical practice to reduce opioid withdrawal in humans. However, few studies have been reported on its effectiveness for this purpose. Guinea-pigs were made dependent and tolerant to morphine using(More)
The effects of subchronic subcutaneous treatment with tachykinin receptor antagonists over nine days on the repeated mild stress response induced by daily subcutaneous injections and on the severe acute stress induced by morphine withdrawal were investigated in guinea-pigs. The NK(1) receptor antagonist, L733,060, 0.25mg/kg, significantly increased(More)
The plant lectin, IB4, binds to primary afferent neurons of dorsal root and trigeminal ganglia, where it is selective for nociceptive neurons. In the enteric nervous system of the guinea-pig IB4 labels intrinsic primary afferent neurons, which are believed to have roles as nociceptors. Here we investigate whether IB4 binding is also a marker of intrinsic(More)
