Previous investigations from our laboratory have demonstrated qualitatively that a latent respiratory pathway can be activated by systemic theophylline administration to restore function to a hemidiaphragm paralyzed by an upper (C2) cervical spinal cord hemisection in adult rats. The present study seeks to extend the previous investigations by contrasting and quantitating the actions of theophylline, 8-phenyltheophylline, enprofylline, and 8(p-Sulfophenyl)theophylline in restoring function 24 h… CONTINUE READING
