Lidoflazine, a piperazine derivative with known selectivity for vascular smooth muscle, was evaluated as a possible agent for prophylaxis of cerebral vascular contraction induced by subarachnoid perfusion with serotonin. The animals treated with serotonin (5 X 10(-6) M), had a 60% reduction in the diameter of basilar artery but when pretreated with… (More)
Lidoflazine, a piperazine derivative of known selectivity for vascular smooth muscle, was evaluated as a possible agent for prophylaxis of cerebral vascular contraction induced by subarachnoid perfusion with whole blood. Previous studies from this laboratory have indicated its efficacy in preventing basilar artery contraction induced by serotonin. The… (More)
