clude the possibility of a direct effect of metoclopramide and propantheline on absorption across the intestinal mucosa. We have tested the effects of these compounds and of phenobarbitone on D-xylose absorption from rat small intestine in vitro. Everted sacs were used with Krebs phosphate buffer containing calci,um and glucose.' Transport of 50 mM xylose was measured with a concentration gradientthat is, with buffer only and no xylose initially within the sac. The drugs were added to the… Expand

Topics from this paper

Metoclopramide: A Review of its Pharmacological Properties and Clinical Use
TLDR
Pharmacodynamic studies in man and in a variety of experimental animals have established that metoclopramide, after oral or intravenous administration, rapidly affects the motility of the gastro-intestinal tract, and is effective in preventing apomorphine-induced vomiting in man. Expand
THE ENDOCRINE AND METABOLIC EFFECTS OF CIMETIDINE
TLDR
The results show that oral cimetidine given at therapeutic doses to patients with peptic ulcers does not produce consistent changes in circulating anterior pituitary hormones. Expand
EFFECT OF METOCLOPRAMIDE AND LISURIDE ON HYPOPHYSEAL AND GONADAL FUNCTION IN MEN
TLDR
No adverse effects of metoclopramide on sperm analysis could be demonstrated and any substance‐related effects on the other hypophyseal or gonadal hormones were unable to be demonstrated. Expand
Pharmacokinetic and concentration-effect studies with intravenous metoclopramide.
TLDR
It is proposed that a two-compartment model adequately describes the disposition of the drug which is rapidly distributed and eliminated and the degree of sedation induced by ethanol would appear to be related to plasma metoclopramide concentration. Expand
Metoclopramide effect on serum prolactin, LH and FSH in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome
TLDR
There was a negative correlation between basal PRL levels and the maximum net increase in PRL after MCP, and a relative dopamine deficiency might cause hypersecretion of PRL and LH in patients with PCOS and hyperprolactinemia. Expand
Effect of metoclopramide on rat prolactin secretion in vivo.
TLDR
It is suggested that metoclopramide stimulates prolactin secretion in rat and this secretion is abolished by dopaminergic stimulant. Expand
THE EFFECT OF LISURIDE HYDROGEN MALEATE, AN ERGOT DERIVATIVE ON ANTERIOR PITUITARY HORMONE SECRETION IN MAN
TLDR
The results suggest that lisuride acts as a long‐acting dopamine agonist and that therefore this drug could be of therapeutic use in hyperprolactinaemic states and acromegaly. Expand
Effect of bromocriptine and metoclopramide on serum prolactin levels in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
TLDR
The data suggest that exaggerated prolactin response to metoclopramide in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis may be a result of a decreased activity of central dopaminergic neurons. Expand
METOCLOPRAMIDE FOR BREAST MILK PRODUCTION
TLDR
The efficacy of a dopamine antagonist-metoclopramide to recommend for healthy mothers with lactational insufficiency was evaluated in healthy mothers in order to make sure the proper technique for breast feeding being used. Expand
Dopaminergic inhibition of vasopressin-stimulated water flow in the toad bladder: Evidence for local formation of dopamine
TLDR
Dopamine administration increases renal excretion of water and Na and causes a significant inhibition of arginine vasopressin or cyclic adenosine monophosphate stimulated water flow, suggesting that dopamine can be formed locally in the toad bladder and can thus serve as a local modulator of water transport.
