Acute treatment with MC (50-400 mg/kg) significantly increased swimming time (86.51%) and reduced the duration of immobility (52.35%) in FST and TST with peak effects observed at 200 mg/kg, respectively, in comparison to control. The pretreatment of mice with either sulpiride (dopamine D2 receptor antagonist), or metergoline (5-HT2 receptor antagonist), or cyproheptadine (5-HT2 receptor antagonist), or prazosin (α1-adrenoceptor antagonist), or yohimbine (α2-adrenoceptor antagonist), and atropine (muscarinic cholinergic receptor antagonist) 15 min before oral administration of MC (200 mg/kg) significantly blocked its anti-immobility effect. Similarly, MC (200 mg/kg) significantly reduced anxiety by increasing the open arm exploration (64.27%) in EPM, number of head-dips in HBT (34.38%), and time spent in light compartment (29.38%) in the LDT. However, pretreatment with flumazenil (GABAA receptor antagonist) 15 min before MC (200 mg/kg) significantly blocked (54.76%) its anxiolytic effect.

The paper is concerned with the results of a radioimmunoassay of the state of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system in patients with a neuroendocrine-metabolic type of the hypothalamic syndrome. They received pathogenetic therapy with peritol (an antiserotonin drug) or parlodel (a dopaminergic drug) during three months and routine therapy. The latter was not enough to return to normal the basal blood levels of aldosterone, reaction of the glomerular zone of the adrenocortical substance and the juxtaglomerular apparatus of the kidneys. Peritol therapy normalized the blood concentration of aldosterone; reactions of the glomerular zone of the adrenocortical substance and the juxtaglomerular apparatus to insulin hypoglycemia and furosemide acute testing improved considerably. After a course of parlodel therapy blood concentration of aldosterone got to normal, and reaction of the glomerular zone of the adrenocortical substance and the juxtaglomerular apparatus to insulin hypoglycemia was unchanged whereas it improved after furosemide testing.

Saline nasal irrigation is effective in the treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis, and sodium chloride itself has no antiallergic effects. The mechanism of saline nasal irrigation depends mainly on washing away allergens and inflammatory mediators induced by allergic reactions. Tap water has the same washing effects as saline. In this study, it was investigated if tap water nasal irrigation was effective in the treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis. Sixty-four patients diagnosed with seasonal allergic rhinitis were enrolled. Patients were randomized to tap water nasal irrigation group and non-tap water nasal irrigation group for treatment. Patients of both groups were treated with desloratadine. Treatment outcomes were measured using allergic rhinitis Quality of Life (QoL) survey was completed at baseline and after 3 weeks of therapy. There were statistically significant differences in QoL scores between tap water nasal irrigation group and non-tap water nasal irrigation group. The tap water nasal irrigation group had better QoL scores than the non-tap water nasal irrigation group. Tap water nasal irrigation can be a valuable adjuvant therapy for patients with seasonal allergic rhinitis.

This paper reviews the literature on drug treatment of eating disorders in adolescence. No well-controlled psychopharmacological studies specifically of adolescent patients with eating disorders have been performed. Therefore, the evidence for rational treatment guidelines is extremely limited. More psychopharmacological studies - especially SSRI trials - of adolescents with eating disorders are needed before general clinical recommendations can be issued. Cyproheptadine appears to be a safe and interesting drug that should be explored further, particularly in severely restricting patients with anorexia nervosa (AN). The use of zinc supplement in the treatment of AN also requires further study.
Kynuramines are endogenously occurring diamines derived from tryptophan. In the present study, we have compared the pharmacological actions of 5-hydroxykynuramine (5-OH-K) with kynuramine and 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) on vascular resistance changes and responsiveness to adrenergic stimuli in the isolated perfused rat kidney. 5-OH-K was found to mimic the actions of 5-HT in that it produced vasoconstriction, potentiation of alpha 1-adrenoceptor-mediated responses to norepinephrine (NE) and periarterial nerve stimulation, and displaced specific [3H]spiroperidol binding from rat cortical membranes. With regard to all parameters measured, 5-OH-K was about 15-times less active than 5-HT. Vascular responses to 5-OH-K and 5-HT were inhibited noncompetitively by ketanserin and cyproheptadine. Unlike 5-OH-K, kynuramine, failed to evoke vasoconstriction and inhibited vascular responses to NE via alpha 1-adrenoceptors. Thus, kynuramine lacks serotonin receptor agonist activity but possesses alpha 1-adrenoceptor blocking properties. In contrast, 5-OH-K potentiates NE and acts as a serotonin agonist. The present results raise the possibility that kynuramine and 5-OH-K might act as endogenous modulators of serotonergic and adrenergic mechanisms in the renal vascular bed.

By week 1 and 2 of the intervention, the intensity and frequency of abdominal pain among the patients treated with cyproheptadine, were rated as complete resolved and very much improved or improved for 3 (20%), 10 (66.6%), respectively. However, in the placebo-receiver children, these scales had no change in 7 (50%), rated as improved or very much improved in 5 (35.7%), and become worse in 2 (14.3%). The patients' self-reported and the parents' impression in the cyproheptadine group were significantly better than it in the placebo group (P=0.003).

In previous studies, we noticed that intradermal injection of histamine solutions might significantly complicate the interpretation of clinical data and of laser-Doppler flowmetry recordings (LDF). Therefore, we used the histamine dry skin prick test (HPT) for pharmacological studies. In this study, LDF monitoring of the physiological skin response to histamine was made in a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study comparing the in vivo anti-H1 activity of cetirizine (10 mg) or loratadine (10 mg), 6 h after a single oral intake. As compared with responses recorded after intake of placebo, LDF readings performed at HPT sites (increase in LDF signal) and at 1 cm from HPT (reduction of LDF signal) conclusively illustrate the stable and almost complete blockade of H1 receptors by cetirizine. In vivo effects obtained with loratadine were considered weaker because (1) there was no significant influence of loratadine on the blood flow recorded at HPT sites, (2) a significant reduction at 1 cm from HPT sites was observed only after a lag phase (> or = 10 min) and (3) there were significantly higher skin perfusion levels at 1 cm from HPT sites between 6 and 10 min after the test under loratadine as compared with cetirizine. Hence, multipoint probing with LDF over time appears as a sensitive method for discriminating response profiles between two anti-H1 agents. Furthermore, this is the first time that anti-H1-related changes of the dynamics of expansion of the flare response have been demonstrated.

Gas-liquid chromatographic and mass, nuclear magnetic resonance, and infrared spectrometric techniques were utilized to identify some of the metabolites of cyproheptadine in the urine of human subjects who had ingested radiolabeled drug. Aromatic ring hydroxylation (followed by glucuronide conjugation), N-demethylation, and heterocyclic ring oxidation were shown to occur in man. The principal metabolite, however, was identified tentatively as a quaternary ammonium, glucuronide-like conjugate of cyproheptadine. No evidence was found for metabolic changes at the tricyclic ethylene bridge in this species.

Thirty male Wistar rats were randomly divided into five groups. Two control groups were used, one group received 0.5 ml water per day (vehicle group), and another group did not receive anything (control group). The other 3 groups were daily treated by 50, 100 or 150 mg/kg of coriander for 7 days, respectively. The daily amount of the food eaten by each rat was measured for 10 days. The amount of energy intake of each rat was also calculated for 7 days during the intervention. The difference in energy intake was calculated and compared between groups.

The effect of sublingual immunotherapy on quality of life (QoL) was examined in patients with grass pollen-induced rhinoconjunctivitis. Patients (n = 855) were randomised to once-daily grass allergen tablets (2,500; 25,000; or 75,000 SQ-T Phleum pratense extract; GRAZAX or placebo. Treatment was initiated 8 weeks before the start of the grass pollen season and continued throughout. If symptoms were present, patients received loratadine or placebo rescue medication. There were three major findings: in patients using loratadine, grass allergen tablets provided QOL benefits over placebo; Rhinoconjunctivitis Quality of Life Questionnaire (RQLQ) score was 17% (p = 0.006) and 20% (p = 0.020) greater with 75,000 SQ-T tablet than with placebo at first and second seasonal visit, respectively; in patients not using loratadine, grass allergen tablets improved QoL more than placebo; RQLQ score was 21% greater (p = 0.021) with 75,000 SQ-T tablet at second seasonal visit; grass tablets (without loratadine) had a greater effect on QoL than loratadine alone. RQLQ score was 26% (p = 0.014) greater with 75,000 SQ-T tablets than loratadine at second seasonal visit. These data show that sublingual immunotherapy with grass allergen tablets improves QOL in allergic rhinoconjunctivitis, reduces symptoms, and that this effect is greater than rescue antihistamine alone.

Antihistamines are believed to reduce the sneezing and rhinorrhea associated with allergic rhinitis, primarily by competitive antagonism of histamine for H1 cellular receptors, but additional mechanisms of action may contribute to their clinical efficacy. To improve our understanding of H1 antihistamine action, we studied the effects of pretreatment with terfenadine, cetirizine, ketotifen, azatadine, diphenhydramine, and azelastine on increases in vascular permeability, mast cell activation, and sneezing induced by nasal challenge with antigen. All studied antihistamines reduced sneezing, indicating that they all effectively antagonize histamine after its release. In addition, terfenadine and topically administered azatadine blocked the release of histamine. Studies with cetirizine and azelastine revealed that these antihistamines significantly reduced sulfidopeptide leukotriene levels. Terfenadine and azelastine also reduced kinin production. These results confirm that antihistamines are effective in reducing sneezing and, in some cases, vascular permeability. The findings of these studies also illustrate that the various antihistamines have multiple and different mechanisms of action that may have implications for their clinical uses.

The possibility of using mice in place of rats on the anti-inflammatory screening tests was investigated. The diversities of the responses between mice and rats on screening tests, that is, carrageenin, formalin-induced edema in the hind paw, adjuvant arthritis and cotton pellet granuloma were observed with p.o. administration of prednisolone, 0.5 mg/kg and 5.0 mg/kg, and indomethacin, 0.5 mg/g and 5.0 mg/kg. On the effect of these drugs on screening tests, a similar type of phenomena between rats and mice was found. Then the close-response relationships of aspirin, flufenamic acid, phenylbutazone, cyproheptadine, prednisolone and indomethacin were examined in four kinds of screening tests mentioned above. Prednisolone, indomethacin, phenylbutazone and aspirin inhibited the carrageenin, formalin-induced edema, cotton pellet granuloma and adjuvant arthritis apparently, but flufenamic acid showed no inhibition on the carrageenin and formalin-induced edema. Cyproheptadine inhibited the formalin and serotonin-induced edema. We have found that mice, instead of rats, can be used for the anti-inflammatory screening methods.

Rats and mice retain a duplicated insulin (I) gene. Because the duplicated gene shares only incomplete homology with the ancestral insulin (II) gene it may be regulated differently. In the studies presented here we measured changes in abundance of these distinct insulin mRNAs and their precursors in response to fasting and fasting plus a single dose of cyproheptadine, two experimental manipulations that cause changes in the level of total insulin mRNA in rats. Both diminished rat insulin II mRNA to a greater extent than rat insulin I mRNA. Rat insulin II mRNA comprised 41% of the total insulin mRNA in 0 h controls and decreased to 33% of the total insulin mRNA after a 10-h fast. Insulin II mRNA decreased to 26% of the total insulin mRNA 10 h after treatment with cyproheptadine. To determine whether these manipulations had effects on insulin mRNA synthesis, precursors for each of the two mRNAs were quantified. Fasting for 24 h had only small effects on insulin I mRNA precursor, but diminished rat insulin II pre-mRNA to 32% of the 0 h control values. One and a half hours after fasting plus cyproheptadine administration, pre-mRNA for rat insulin II levels had decreased to 38%, while rat insulin I pre-mRNA remained at levels present in 0 h controls. Levels of rat insulin I and II pre-mRNAs were both maximally depressed at 10 h, but rat insulin II pre-mRNA decreased to 3%, while rat insulin I pre-mRNA diminished to only 49% of controls.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

The contribution of behavioral endpoint to results obtained in the 55 degrees C rat hot plate procedure was assessed. Specifically, the use of a hind paw lick-only endpoint was compared to that of a hind paw lick-or-jump endpoint. Effects of prototypical analgesic and non-analgesic compounds on response latency increases were determined under each condition. Whereas the effects of morphine, oxycodone and codeine were similar under each condition, effects of a number of non-analgesic agents differed markedly depending upon the endpoint used. Clozapine, chlorpromazine, thioridazine, atropine, scopolamine, benactyzine, yohimbine, idazoxan and cyproheptadine produced dose-dependent increases in response latency under the hind paw lick-only condition but did not increase latencies when the hind paw lick-or-jump endpoint was used. Haloperidol, sulpiride, benztropine, methyl atropine, phentolamine, prazosin, methiothepin, methysergide, diphenhydramine, pargyline and diazepam failed to increase response latencies under the hind paw lick-only condition. Moreover, whereas diazepam, chlorpromazine, pentobarbital, dantrolene and ethanol produced dose-dependent increases in the height required for successful aerial righting, increases in hind paw lick-or-jump latencies occurred only following near-anesthetic doses of pentobarbital and ethanol. These data indicate that the hind paw lick endpoint is susceptible to perturbation by extraneous pharmacologic activities. Drugs exerting muscarinic cholinergic and alpha 2-adrenergic antagonist effects are particularly able to disrupt this behavior. Disruption is not associated specifically with any other pharmacologic action, although other activities may interfere with the response. In contrast, the hind paw lick-or-jump endpoint fails to detect skeletal muscle relaxant activity and only detects gross motor impairment when near-anesthetic doses of drugs are used. The present data suggest that detection of non-analgesic drug activities by rat hot plate can be minimized by use of a hind paw lick-or-jump endpoint.
