Physostigmine-induced hypothermic response in rats and its relationship with endogenous arginine vasopressin.

Abstract

AIMS It is well known that physostigmine (PHY) and other anticholinesterase (anti-ChE) agents induce hypothermia in rodents but little is known about the mechanism of action. Because arginine vasopressin (AVP) has been found to be an endogenous antipyretic molecule in the CNS, we determined if PHY-induced hypothermia is linked to the endogenous release of… (More)
