Reversal of the antinociceptive effects of intrathecally administered serotonin in the rat by a selective 5-HT3 receptor antagonist.

The ability of the highly selective 5-HT3 receptor antagonist ICS 205-930 (3 alpha-tropanyl-1H-indole-3-carboxylic acid ester) to block the increase in tail flick (TFL) and hot plate latencies (HPL) produced by intrathecally (i.t.) administered serotonin (5-HT) was examined in pargyline pretreated rats. ICS 205-930 (0.1 microgram, i.t.) blocked the ability… CONTINUE READING
