Differential action of domperidone to modify emesis and behaviour induced by apomorphine in the ferret.


The action of domperidone (1 mg/kg, i.p.) on spontaneous behaviour and the emesis and behavioural change induced by apomorphine (0.25 mg/kg, s.c.) were studied in the ferret. Domperidone was inactive to modify spontaneous behaviour but apomorphine-induced emesis and increased locomotor activity (distance travelled and velocity of movement; P<0.05); the… (More)
