Buprenorphine potentiates L-DOPA-induced contralateral rotation in 6-hydroxydopamine-treated rats.

Abstract

Animals are commonly given opioid analgetics such as buprenorphine for post-operative pain management. In this study, the effect of the analgetic buprenorphine, a partial mu receptor agonist and kappa receptor antagonist, on L-DOPA-induced contralateral rotation was measured in 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) treated rats. Male Sprague-Dawley rats received… (More)
