Stimulus intensity and the comparative efficacy of mu- and kappa-opioid agonists on nociceptive spinal reflexes in the rat.


The influence of stimulus intensity was tested on the relative spinal efficacy of intravenously administered mu- (fentanyl) and kappa-opioid (U-50,488) agonists. Spinal reflexes were generated by different intensities of noxious electrical stimuli in alpha-chloralose anaesthetized, spinalized rats. Both drugs became less effective as the intensity of C… (More)
