The effect of the selective 5-HT3 receptor antagonist MDL 72222 on voluntary ethanol consumption was examined in Sardinian ethanol-preferring (SP) rats in a free choice (10% ethanol and water) experiment. SP rats consumed 8.1 +/- 1.1 g/kg ethanol daily. MDL 72222 treatment (3.0, 5.0 and 7.0 mg/kg i.p. 3 times daily for 6 days) inhibited ethanol consumption during the 6 days of treatment by 25%, 50% and 75%, respectively, without modifying total fluid intake. We suggest that 5-HT3 receptor… CONTINUE READING
