PURPOSE We characterized pharmacological effects of the phytotherapeutic agent Eviprostat® on urodynamic parameters, bladder muscarinic and purinergic receptors, and urinary cytokines in rats with cyclophosphamide induced cystitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Urodynamic parameters in cyclophosphamide (150 mg/kg intraperitoneally) treated rats were measured by a(More)
OBJECTIVE To characterize pharmacologically relevant muscarinic receptors in the human bladder mucosa and detrusor muscle using radioligand binding assays with [N-methyl-3H]scopolamine methyl chloride ([3H]NMS) and 4-DAMP mustard. METHODS Muscarinic receptors in homogenates of bladder mucosa, detrusor muscle, and parotid gland were measured using the(More)
The aim of this study was to characterize pharmacological effects of gosha-jinki-gan (GJG) and green tea extract (GTE), on urodynamic parameters, bladder receptors, and urinary cytokines in rats with cyclophosphamide (CYP)-induced cystitis. Urodynamic parameters in CYP-treated rats were measured using the cystometric method. Muscarinic and purinergic(More)
OBJECTIVES To clarify the effect of saw palmetto extract (SPE), a phytotherapeutic agent, on urodynamic parameters, bladder muscarinic and purinergic receptors, and urinary cytokines in rats with cystitis induced by cyclophosphamide (CYP). METHODS Saw palmetto extract (60 mg/kg per day) was administered orally twice a day for 7 days to rats. The(More)
