The possible involvement of the serotoninergic system in histamine-induced PRL secretion was studied in urethane anesthetized male rats. Intracerebroventricular infusion of histamine (30 micrograms) stimulated PRL secretion 10-fold. This effect was mimicked by the H2-receptor agonist dimaprit (300 micrograms), while the H1-receptor agonist(More)
The possible involvement of histamine (HA) in the stress-induced increase in plasma renin activity (PRA) was investigated in male rats. Intracerebroventricular (ICV) infusion of histamine (HA; 3.8-60 micrograms) increased PRA dose-dependently, and the Kd (dissociation konstant) of HA was estimated to approximately 30 micrograms. ICV infusion of HA (30(More)
Histamine, which acts as a neurotransmitter, stimulates the release of the pro-opiomelanocortin derived peptides ACTH, beta-lipotropin, and beta-endorphin. Since stress affects the hypothalamic turn-over of neuronal histamine, we investigated the role of histaminergic neurons in the mediation of the stress-induced release of ACTH and beta-endorphin(More)
Introduction. To minimize delay between presentation, diagnosis, and treatment of cutaneous melanoma (CM), a national fast-track referral system (FTRS) was implemented in Denmark. The aim of this study was to analyze the referral patterns to our department of skin lesions suspicious of melanoma in the FTRS. Methods. Patients referred to the Department of(More)
Burn injuries to the anterior chest wall in the young woman may cause disfiguration or lack of development of the breasts during puberty. Often the patients are referred after puberty with an apparent lack of breast development due to firm postburn scar tissue constricting the anterior chest wall. We report a case where a young female with a postburn(More)
INTRODUCTION Cancer is a recognized risk factor of venous thromboembolism (VTE) as it induces a prothrombotic state through various mechanisms of activation of coagulation. Recognizing occult cancer as a risk factor is equally important. In patients with no known thromboembolic risk factors, utilizing PET/CT as a screening tool may be considered in order to(More)
The involvement of histaminergic neurons in the neuroendocrine regulation of the release of the pro-opiomelanocortin-derived peptides adrenocorticotropin (ACTH; anterior pituitary lobe) and alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH; intermediate pituitary lobe) was studied in conscious male rats. Pretreatment with the histamine (HA) synthesis(More)
Histamine (HA) is likely to participate in the neuroendocrine regulation of prolactin (PRL) secretion. We, therefore, studied the possible involvement of HA in the stress-induced release of PRL in conscious male rats. HA (30 micrograms) infused intracerebroventricularly 15 min before decapitation elevated PRL plasma levels from 5 +/- 1 to 54 +/- 6 ng/ml (p(More)
It has been shown that histamine (HA) stimulates prolactin (PRL) secretion via H2 receptors following intra-cerebroventricular infusion and via H1 receptors following systemic (intra-arterial) infusion. Since the effect of HA appears to be exerted at a suprapituitary level, we investigated the involvement of the tuberoinfundibular dopaminergic (TIDA) system(More)
General anaesthesia has been reported to interact with neuroendocrine functions leading to large variations in basal and stimulated plasma levels of several hormones, but the findings are often contradictory. In the present investigation we have attempted to clarify the importance of the experimental procedure when evaluating the influence of anaesthetics(More)
