Aufwachverhalten und psychomimetische Reaktionen nach S-(+)-Ketamin
TLDR
S-(+)-ketamine should be always combined with a hypnotic or sedative drug in clinical anaesthesia, irrespective of its application as a single bolus, a bolus followed by continuous infusion, or an intramuscular injection. Expand
Protection against quinolinic acid-mediated excitotoxicity in nigrostriatal dopaminergic neurons by endogenous kynurenic acid
TLDR
Increases in endogenous kynurenic acid can prevent the loss of nigrostriatal dopaminergic neurons resulting from a focal infusion of quinolinic acid or N-methyl-D-aspartate, and may be useful in retarding cell loss in Parkinson's disease and other neurodegenerative diseases where excitotoxic mechanisms have been implicated.

[Ketamine--anticonvulsive and proconvulsive actions].
TLDR
Animal experimentation has revealed that ketamine has anticonvulsive properties; these have been designated non-convulsive generalized electrographic seizures because of their similarities to epileptiform potentials, even though there are no recognizable signs of seizures. Expand

TLDR
Thiopentone, etomidate, ketamine, and midazolam were studied on the generation of bactericidal agents by PMNL in vitro and there was no statistically significant effect on myeloperoxidase release. Expand
The Nonmedical Use of Ketamlne, Part Two: A Review of Problent Use and Dependence
TLDR
The conclusions are that ketamine dependence is linked with effects that this complex drug has in common with not only cocaine and amphetamine but also with opiates, alcohol and cannabis, as well as the psychological attractions of its distinctive psychedelic properties. Expand

Synergistic Inhibition of Muscarinic Signaling by Ketamine Stereoisomers and the Preservative Benzethonium Chloride
TLDR
Because S(+) ketamine is a significantly more potent analgesic, it should have less muscarinic inhibitory action than R(‐) ketamine when used in clinically equivalent doses, and if reconstituted with a different preservative, Ketalar might be a less potent mus carinic antagonist. Expand
