The antipyretic action of arginine vasopressin (AVP), administered into a lateral cerebral ventricle or directly into the brain tissue via push-pull perfusion, was investigated in conscious New Zealand White rabbits. Administration of AVP into a lateral cerebral ventricle (ICV) was ineffective in reducing an endotoxin-induced fever and did not alter body temperature in the afebrile rabbit. Control push-pull perfusions with the carrier vehicle were without effect on endotoxin fevers or normal… CONTINUE READING
