Pharmacological evaluation of contractile activity of the dog heartworm Dirofilaria immitis

Abstract

Effects of a variety of compounds on spontaneous contractile activity of whole, intact, adult canine heartworms (HW), which had been maintained in culture, were evaluated to improve understanding of the pharmacological sensitivities of this parasitic nematode. Acetylcholine, pilocarpine, imidazole, levamisole, and DL-tetramisole caused spastic paralysis… (More)
