The effects of chronic morphine administration (dependence) and naloxone-induced withdrawal on cerebral GABAB receptor and its signal transduction system were examined. Alterations in receptor affinity and number and in the amount of Gi protein were determined by radioligand binding assay and immunoblotting with Gi protein antibody, respectively. [3H]GABA binding to GABAB receptors in the brain of morphine-dependent and -withdrawn mice showed no significant change in either high or low affinity sites. Similarly, no alterations were noted in the coupling between GABAB receptor and Gi protein or in the amount of protein. However, the suppressive effect of baclofen, a GABAB agonist, on forskolin-stimulated cAMP formation in cerebral cortical slices of these animals was abolished. These results indicate that chronic morphine administration may induce functional deterioration in the coupling between Gi protein and the adenylate cyclase system.

1. To determine whether hypothalamic and medullary GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid)B stimulation would affect the sympathetic and cardiovascular activities, and to determine whether these effects would be altered in hypertension, baclofen (a GABAB agonist) was injected into a hypothalamic pressor area (ventromedial hypothalamus, VMH), a depressor area (anterior hypothalamus, AH), or a nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS) in normotensive and spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR). 2. Intracerebroventricular (ICV) injections of a GABAA agonist (muscimol, 1 mu g) decreased blood pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR). ICV injections of baclofen (2 mu g) elicited biphasic depressor and pressor effects, and these effects were abolished by a pretreatment with saclofen (GABAB antagonist, 100 mu g, icv). 3. Muscimol (400 ng) and baclofen (800 ng) injected into VMH decreased sympathetic nerve activity (SNA), BP and HR to almost similar levels, while saclofen injected into VMH increased HR without affecting BP levels. 4. The same dose of baclofen injected into AH increased BP, but muscimol (AH) did not alter BP. 5. Both muscimol and baclofen injected into NTS increased BP, but its magnitude was larger in baclofen injections. 6. Depressor and sympatho-inhibitory effects of baclofen (VMH) in SHR were larger than those in normotensive Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rats, while pressor responses elicited by baclofen (AH) did not differ between SHR and WKY. 7. In summary, GABA reduces SNA, BP and HR through both GABAA and GABAB receptors in VMH. In addition, the GABAB system acts on AH and NTS to further regulate the cardiovascular activities. In SHR, GABAB-ergic dysfunction in VMH but not in AH might contribute to the development of hypertension.

Animal and human studies have shown that sleep may have an impact on functional recovery after brain damage. Baclofen (Bac) and gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB) have been shown to induce physiological sleep in humans, however, their effects in rodents are unclear. The aim of this study is to characterize sleep and electroencelphalogram (EEG) after Bac and GHB administration in rats. We hypothesized that both drugs would induce physiological sleep.

1. The role of GABAA and GABAB receptors in presynaptic inhibition was studied by examining the effect of local application of antagonists by ionophoresis during intracellular recording of presynaptic inhibition of compound and unitary group Ia afferent excitatory postsynaptic potentials (EPSPs) in gastrocnemius motoneurones. 2. Ionophoresis of the GABAA antagonist bicuculline methochloride (BMC) was found to block presynaptic inhibition of both compound and unitary EPSPs by up to 85%. BMC also substantially reduced, and occasionally abolished, the late part of the inhibitory postsynaptic potential (IPSP) evoked in motoneurones by the conditioning stimulation. The early part of this IPSP was found to be sensitive to ionophoresis of strychnine hydrochloride. 3. Ionophoresis of 2-OH-saclofen caused a reduction in presynaptic inhibition of compound EPSPs by 5-25% but had no effect on the IPSP evoked in motoneurones by the conditioning stimulation. 4. Ionophoresis of the GABAB antagonist (-)-baclofen reduced the amplitude of unconditioned EPSPs; however it had little effect on presynaptic inhibition. 5. It was concluded that at the Ia afferent-motoneurone synapse presynaptic inhibition is mediated primarily through the activation of GABAA receptors. The activation of GABAB receptors appears to play only a minor role in presynaptic inhibition at this synapse. This contrasts with the relative ease with which (-)-baclofen can reduce transmitter release from Ia afferent terminals and suggests that the receptors activated by (-)-baclofen are predominantly extrasynaptic.

The experience with 64 patients with dystonia seen at the Extrapyramidal Diseases Sector of the Neurology Department of the Hospital Universitário Clementino Fraga Filho of the UFRJ is presented as well as the pertinent review of the literature. The five-and-a-half-year of follow-up showed that 33 were male and 31 female; 48 were white, 10 mulatto and 6 negro; the mean time of disease was 9 years and 8 months. According to the distribution of the movement disorder, 30 (46.9%) were focal, 17 (26.6%) segmental, 13 (20.3%) generalized, 3 (4.7%) hemidystonia and 1 (1.5%) multifocal. In 11 (17.2%) the age of onset was before 12 years old, in 6 (9.4%) between 13 and 20 years old, and in 47 (73.4%) after 20 years old. According to the etiology, 39 (60.9%) were idiopathic sporadic, 6 (9.4%) were idiopathic familial and 19 (29.7%) were symptomatic. The therapeutical approach used in these patients were anticholinergic drugs, dopaminergic agonists or antagonists and baclofen, alone or associated with anticholinergic drugs for generalized dystonia. The authors conclude that botulinum toxin type A is the most valuable therapeutic agent in the treatment of focal dystonia.

AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is a master enzyme that regulates ATP-sensitive K(+) (K-ATP) channels in pancreatic beta-cells and cardiac myocytes. We used patch pipettes to record currents and potentials to investigate effects of AMPK on K-ATP currents in substantia nigra compacta (SNC) dopamine neurons in slices of rat midbrain. When slices were superfused repeatedly with the K-ATP channel opener diazoxide, we were surprised to find that diazoxide currents gradually increased in magnitude, reaching 300% of the control value 60min after starting whole-cell recording. However, diazoxide current increased significantly more, to 472% of control, when recorded in the presence of the AMPK activator A769662. Moreover, superfusing the slice with the AMPK blocking agent dorsomorphin significantly reduced diazoxide current to 38% of control. Control experiments showed that outward currents evoked by the K-ATP channel opener NN-414 also increased over time, but not currents evoked by the GABAB agonist baclofen. Delaying the application of diazoxide after starting whole-cell recording correlated with augmentation of current. Loose-patch recording showed that diazoxide produced a 34% slowing of spontaneous firing rate that did not intensify with repeated applications of diazoxide. However, superfusion with A769662 significantly augmented the inhibitory effect of diazoxide on firing rate. We conclude that K-ATP channel function is augmented by AMPK, which is activated during the process of making whole-cell recordings. Our results suggest that AMPK and K-ATP interactions may play an important role in regulating dopamine neuronal excitability.

The effect of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) on neuronal firing rate in rat suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) slices was examined using continuous recording methods. GABA inhibited neuronal discharge during both the subjective day and the subjective night in a concentration-dependent manner characterized by two apparent affinity states. The GABAA receptor agonist muscimol caused potent inhibition regardless of circadian time; repeated applications of the agonist did not reverse the direction of effect. The GABAA receptor antagonists bicuculline and picrotoxin increased excitability when applied during either subjective day or subjective night. A significant increase in GABAA receptor- mediated inhibition, as well as endogenous GABAergic tone, was observed on the second day after slice preparation. The GABAB receptor agonist baclofen inhibited cell firing during subjective day and night, but the GABAB antagonist phaclofen had no significant effect. These data provide additional strong support for a predominantly inhibitory role of GABA in the rat SCN, regardless of the time of application in relation to the circadian rhythm, and demonstrate an important level of plasticity of this system in vitro.

Spasticity has been defined as "a motor disorder characterized by a velocity-dependent increase in tonic stretch reflexes with exaggerated tendon jerks, resulting from hyperexcitability of the stretch reflex, as one component of the upper motor neuron syndrome." Increased motor neuron excitability and enhanced stretch-evoked synaptic excitation of motor neurons are potential neurophysiologic mechanisms to explain this phenomenon. The relative contribution of these two distinct mechanisms likely varies depending on the location of the lesion in the central nervous system. The patient history is an important component of the clinical evaluation focusing on potential nociceptive inputs that can worsen spasticity (e.g., urinary tract infections, skin breakdown). Assessment of the impact of the spasticity on function (positive and negative), position, care of the patient, and pain should be pursued. Clinical examination of spasticity is performed using methods to evoke and quantify spastic reflex responses to muscle stretch stimuli and to observe the patient performing functional tasks to note the impact of spasticity on their performance. Treatment is based on the negative impact of the spasticity on the patient, severity of the problems, and whether the hypertonicity is focal or diffuse in distribution (see article by Elovic elsewhere in this issue). First-line treatments include elimination of nociceptive stimuli, range of motion, seating and positioning, and other physical modalities. If additional intervention is necessary, oral medications are implemented for widespread spasticity, whereas focal problems are treated with prolonged stretching and splinting or casting to maintain muscle stretch and optimal positioning. In more severe cases, invasive procedures may be needed to supplement other treatments. Neurolytic procedures are pursued for focal tone problems. For generalized hypertonicity, intrathecal pump administration of medications or surgical interruption of reflex pathways has been helpful. Ultimately, the clinician must systematically approach the evaluation and treatment of spasticity. As decisions regarding moving from less to more invasive treatments are discussed, the potential risks and side effects of treatment options must be weighed versus the potential benefits that the patient might receive to maintain a rational approach to the management of spasticity.

We included five trials (total of 199 participants, average age of 40 years). The neurological diseases causing DSD were traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI), multiple sclerosis (MS), or congenital malformations.One trial compared placement of sphincteric stent prosthesis with sphincterotomy. For urodynamic measurements, results for postvoid residual urine volume (PVR) and cystometric bladder capacity were inconclusive and consistent with benefit of either sphincteric stent prosthesis or sphincterotomy at three, six, 12, and 24 months. Results for maximum detrusor pressure (Pdet.max) were also inconclusive at three, six, and 12 months; however, after two years, the Pdet.max after sphincterotomy was lower than after stent placement (mean difference (MD) -30 cmH2O, 95% confidence interval (CI) 8.99 to 51.01).Four trials considered botulinum A toxin (BTX-A) injection in the EUS, either alone or in combination with other treatments. The comparators included oral baclofen, oral alpha blocker, lidocaine, and placebo. The BTX-A trials all differed in protocols, and therefore we did not undertake meta-analysis. A single 100 units transperineal BTX-A injection (Botox®) in patients with MS resulted in higher voided urine volumes (MD 69 mL, 95% CI 11.87 to 126.13), lower pre-micturition detrusor pressure (MD -10 cmH2O, 95% CI -17.62 to -2.38), and lower Pdet.max (MD -14 cmH2O, 95% CI -25.32 to -2.68) after 30 days, compared to placebo injection. Results for PVR using catheterisation, basal detrusor pressure, maximal bladder capacity, maximal urinary flow, bladder compliance at functional bladder capacity, maximal urethral pressure, and closure urethral pressure at 30 days were inconclusive and consistent with benefit of either BTX-A injection or placebo injections. In participants with SCI, treatment with 200 units of Chinese manufactured BTX-A injected at eight different sites resulted in better bladder compliance (MD 7.5 mL/cmH2O, 95% CI -10.74 to -4.26) than participants who received the same injections with the addition of oral baclofen. Results for maximum uroflow rate, maximal cystometric capacity, and volume per voiding were inconclusive and consistent with benefit of either BTX-A injection or BTX-A injection with the addition of oral baclofen. However, the poor quality of reporting in this trial caused us to question the relevance of bladder compliance as an adequate outcome measure.In participants with DSD due to traumatic SCI, MS, or congenital malformation, the results for PVRs after one day were inconclusive and consistent with benefit of either a single 100 units transperineal BTX-A (Botox®) injection or lidocaine injection. However, after seven and 30 days of BTX-A injection, PVRs were lower (MD -163 and -158 mL, 95% CI -308.65 to -17.35 and 95% CI -277.57 to -39.03, respectively) compared to participants who received lidocaine injections. Results at one month for Pdet.max on voiding, EUS activity in electromyography, and maximal urethral pressure were inconclusive and consistent with benefit of either BTX-A or lidocaine injections.Finally, one small trial consisting of five men with SCI compared weekly BTX-A injections with normal saline as placebo. The placebo had no effect on DSD in the two participants allocated to the placebo treatment. Their urodynamic parameters were unchanged from baseline values until subsequent injections with BTX-A once a week for three weeks. These subsequent injections resulted in similar responses to those of the three participants who were allocated to the BTX-A treatment. Unfortunately, the report presented no data on placebo treatment.Only the trial that compared sphincterotomy with stent placement reported outcome measures renal function and urologic complications related to DSD. Results for renal function at 12 and 24 months, and urologic complications related to DSD at three, six, 12, and 24 months were inconclusive and consistent with benefit of either sphincteric stent prosthesis or sphincterotomy.Adverse effects reported were haematuria due to the cystoscopic injection and muscle weakness, of which the latter may be related to the BTX-A dose used.All trials had some methodological shortcomings, so insufficient information was available to permit judgement of risk of bias. At least half of the trials had an unclear risk of selection bias and reporting bias. One trial had a high risk of attrition bias, and another trial had a high risk of reporting bias.

GABA produced rapid and transient relaxation of rat duodenum. Homotaurine (3-aminopropansulphonic acid) but not (+/-)-baclofen had a GABA-like effect. GABA-induced relaxation was almost completely inhibited by tetrodotoxin but was unaffected by atropine. Cross desensitization developed between GABA and homotaurine but not between GABA and (+/-)-baclofen. The concentration response curve to the relaxant effects of GABA was shifted to the right by both bicuculline and picrotoxin. However maximal relaxation was still produced by GABA in the presence of bicuculline but not in the presence of picrotoxin. GABA-induced relaxation was not affected by prazosin, yohimbine, propranolol or reserpine pretreatment. Field stimulation (0.1 Hz) of rat isolated duodenum in the presence of atropine and guanethidine produced relaxation similar to that produced by GABA. The ganglionic stimulant DMPP produced a similar effect. Neither Met-enkephalin, noradrenaline, 5-HT, histamine, VIP or arachidonic acid could be held responsible for GABA-induced neurogenic relaxation of rat duodenum. ATP produced relaxations which closely mimicked those produced by either GABA or field stimulation. Exposure to ATP desensitized responses to both GABA and field stimulation to about the same extent. ATP, GABA and field stimulation-induced relaxation was unaffected by either theophylline or indomethacin, but was significantly and selectively antagonized by apamin. In conclusion, GABA-induced relaxation of rat isolated duodenum is largely dependent upon activation of intra-mural nonadrenergic-noncholinergic neurones. The GABA receptor involved appears to be of the GABAA subtype. Circumstantial evidence is provided indicating that ATP might be the endogenous substance released by GABA.

Conventionally, selective dorsal rhizotomy (SDR) has been reserved for ambulant children and implantation of intrathecal baclofen (ITB) pump for non-ambulant children with cerebral palsy. Rather than replacing the ITB pump in selected Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS) grades 4 and 5 children, we elected to undertake SDR instead. We discuss the rationale and outcomes.

ITB group: 25 patients (9 female), mean age at pump insertion 9.4 and Risser 0.9. Initial Cobb angle 25.6° and pelvic tilt 3.2°. Follow-up 4.3 (1.0-7.8) years. Cobb angle at follow-up 76.1° and pelvic tilt 18.9°. Non-ITB group: 25 patients (14 female), mean age at baseline 9.2 and Risser 1.0. Initial Cobb angle 29.7° and pelvic tilt 7.1°. Follow-up 3.5 (1.0-7.5) years. Cobb angle at follow-up 69.1° and pelvic tilt 21.0°. The two groups were statistically similar for baseline age, Cobb angle and Risser grade. Mean curve progression was 13.6°/year for the ITB group vs 12.6°/year for the non-ITB group (p = 0.39). Peak curve progression was similar between the groups. Pelvic tilt progression was comparable; ITB group 4.5°/year vs non-ITB 4.6°/year (p = 0.97). During follow-up 5 patients in the ITB group and 9 in the non-ITB group required spinal fusion surgery for curve progression (p = 0.35).

Antiepileptic drugs probably act by preventing the spread of the abnormal paroxysmal activity from the epileptogenic focus to surrounding normal neurons. An investigation of the mechanism of action of established anticonvulsant drugs on normal neuronal systems may therefore offer useful insights into the pathogenesis of the seizure disorders that these drugs serve to control. Antiabsence drugs (ethosuximide, valproate) depress reticular inhibitory pathways. Drugs effective against generalized tonic-clonic seizures (phenytoin, carbamazepine, valproate) depress reticular excitatory pathways. Drugs that are also effective against trigeminal neuralgia (phenytoin, carbamazepine) also depress afferent excitation and facilitate segmental inhibition in the trigeminal complex. Drugs that depress afferent excitation and facilitate segmental inhibition but do not depress the reticular system (baclofen) are effective against trigeminal neuralgia but do not have clinical antiepileptic properties. These observations indicate that the ability to depress the reticular core is an important characteristic of antiepileptic drugs, and suggest that the reticular core is involved in the spread and generalization of clinical seizures.

In a patient receiving intrathecal baclofen injections for intractable trunk and leg spasms, positioning the subarachnoid catheter tip just caudal to the spinal segments innervating the spastic muscles enhanced the spasmolytic effect of bolus injections of intrathecal baclofen on the affected muscles. Such selective positioning of subarachnoid catheters may facilitate segmental spasmolysis with lower intrathecal doses of baclofen and provide an important alternative to relying only on ascending CSF concentration gradients of baclofen from chronic lumbar intrathecal infusion.

Different cohorts of rats were implanted with bilateral guide cannulae targeting the vHC. We examined the animals' behavior in a touchscreen version of a delay discounting task following intra-vHC infusions of: (a) guanfacine (α2A-adrenergic receptor agonist), (b) SCH 23390 (dopamine D1 receptor antagonist), and (c) muscimol/baclofen (GABAA/B agonists).

1 The effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and related substances were examined in guinea-pig ileum longitudinal muscle.2 GABA at doses ranging from 10(-7) M to 3 x 10(-6) M elicited a relaxation while at higher doses (3 x 10(-6) M - 10(-4) M), as previously described, it caused a contraction followed by relaxation.3 GABA-induced relaxation was bicuculline-insensitive, was mimicked by (-)-baclofen but not by homotaurine and muscimol. The effect of baclofen was stereospecific. GABA- and (-)-baclofen-induced relaxations were dose-dependent and their ED(50) values were similar. A specific cross-desensitization occurred between GABA and (-)-baclofen.4 The bicuculline-insensitive relaxation induced by GABA and (-)-baclofen was prevented by tetrodotoxin and hyoscine but not by phentolamine plus propranolol, naloxone or theophylline.5 In preparations in which the muscle tone was raised by histamine or prostaglandin F(2alpha), GABA and (-)-baclofen induced relaxation to the same extent as before increasing the tone. If the tone was raised by DMPP, a greater bicuculline-insensitive relaxation occurred.6 Contraction caused by GABA was bicuculline-sensitive and was mimicked by homotaurine and muscimol. Contraction was dose-dependent and muscimol was about three times more potent than GABA or homotaurine. A specific cross-desensitization occurred between the contractile effects of GABA and those of homotaurine or muscimol.7 Bicuculline competitively antagonized the contractile effects of GABA, homotaurine and muscimol and gave closely similar pA(2) values. The slope of the Schild plot for the above drugs was near 1, confirming the competitive nature of the antagonism.8 The bicuculline-sensitive contraction induced by GABA, homotaurine and muscimol was abolished by tetrodotoxin and was non-competitively antagonized by hyoscine, while it was unaffected by hexamethonium, mepyramine and methysergide.9 It is concluded that two receptors mediate the GABA effects in guinea-pig ileum: a bicuculline-sensitive GABA(A) receptor, which elicits contraction through an excitatory action on cholinergic post-ganglionic neurones; and a bicuculline-insensitive GABA(B) receptor which causes relaxation through an inhibitory presynaptic action on cholinergic post-ganglionic neurones. We confirm that GABA, homotaurine and muscimol are GABA(A) agonists, while GABA and (-)-baclofen are GABA(B) agonists.

Sensory neurons are a major site of opioid analgesic action, but the effect of chronic morphine treatment (CMT) on mu-opioid receptor function in these cells is unknown. We examined mu-opioid receptor modulation of calcium channel currents (I(Ca)) in small trigeminal ganglion (TG) neurons from mice chronically treated with morphine and measured changes in mu-opioid receptor mRNA levels in whole TG. Mice were injected subcutaneously with 300 mg kg(-1) of morphine base in a slow release emulsion three times over 5 days, or with emulsion alone (vehicles). CMT mice had a significantly reduced response to the acute antinociceptive effects of 30 mg kg(-1) morphine compared with controls (P=0.035).Morphine inhibited I(Ca) in neurons from CMT (EC(50) 300 nM) and vehicle (EC(50) 320 nM) mice with similar potency, but morphine's maximum effect was reduced from 36% inhibition in vehicle to 17% in CMT (P<0.05). Similar results were observed for the selective mu-opioid agonist Tyr-D-Ala-Gly-N-Me-Phe-Gly-ol enkephalin (DAMGO). Inhibition of I(Ca) by the GABA(B) agonist baclofen was unaffected by CMT. In neurons from CMT mice, there were significant reductions in P/Q-type (P=0.007) and L-type (P=0.002) I(Ca) density.mu-Opioid receptor mRNA levels were not altered by CMT. These data demonstrate that CMT produces a significant reduction of the effectiveness of mu-opioid agonists to inhibit I(Ca) in TG sensory neurons, accompanied by a reduction in I(Ca) density. Thus, adaptations in sensory neurons may mediate some of the tolerance to the antinociceptive effects of morphine that develop during systemic administration.

Components within synthetic chemical and natural product extract libraries often interfere with fluorescence-based assays. Fluorescence interference can result when the intrinsic spectral properties of colored compounds overlap with the fluorescent probes. Typically, fluorescence-based protease assays use peptide amidomethylcoumarin derivatives as substrates. However, because many organic compounds absorb in the ultraviolet region, they can interfere with coumarin-based fluorescence assays. Red-shifted fluorescent dyes such as peptidyl rhodamine derivatives are useful because there is generally less interference from organic compounds outside the ultraviolet wavelengths. In this report, rhodamine-based fluorogenic substrates, such as bis-(Leu)(2)-Rhod110 and bis-(Ala-Pro)-Rhod110, were developed for leucine aminopeptidase and dipeptidyl aminopeptidase. Novel, tandem rhodamine substrates such as Ala-Pro-Rhod110-Leu were designed with 2 protease cleavage sites and used to assay 2 proteases in a multiplex format. General endpoint high-throughput screening (HTS) assays were also developed for leucine aminopeptidase, dipeptidyl aminopeptidase, and trypsin that incorporated both amidomethylcoumarin and rhodamine-based fluorogenic substrates into a single screening format. These dual-substrate assays allowed for the successful screening of the LOPAC trade mark collection and natural product extracts despite high levels of fluorescence interference.

Dystonia refers to a syndrome of sustained muscle contractions, frequently causing twisting and repetitive movements or abnormal postures. Although age at onset, anatomic distribution, and family history are essential elements in the evaluation of dystonia, new classification increasingly relies on etiologic and genetic data. In recent years, much progress has been made on the genetics of various forms of dystonia and its pathophysiology underlying the clinical signs. The treatment of dystonia has continued to evolve to include newer medications, different forms of botulinum toxin, and various surgical procedures.

Intrathecal clonidine was tested for the control of bladder hyperreflexia resistant to pararsympathicolytic drugs in spinal cord injured patients. Urodynamic parameters were significantly improved after acute bolus of intrathecal low doses of clonidine. Unfortunately, the chronic intrathecal infusion of clonidine induced cardiovascular side-effects. Intrathecal baclofen did not modified significantly neurogenic bladder dysfunction from spinal lesion. But intrathecal baclofen modified penile erection quality and impaired the ejaculation reflex induced by penile vibratory stimulation in buy lioresal online the same population.

Neurosurgery is only considered for severe spasticity following the failure of noninvasive management (adequate medical and physical therapy). The patients are carefully selected, based on rigorous multidisciplinary clinical assessment. In this we evaluate the contribution of the spasticity to the disability and any residual voluntary motor function. The goals for each patient are: (a) improvement of function and autonomy; (b) control of pain; and (c) prevention of orthopaedic disorders. To achieve these objectives, the surgical procedure must be selective and reduce the excessive hypertonia without suppressing useful muscle tone and limb functions. The surgical procedures are: (1) Classical neuro-ablative techniques (peripheral neurotomies, dorsal rhizotomies) and their modern modifications using microsurgery and intra-operative neural stimulation (dorsal root entry zone: DREZotomy). These techniques are destructive and irreversible, with the reduced muscle tone reflecting the nerve topography. It is mainly indicated when patients have localized buy lioresal online spasticity without useful mobility. (2) Conservative techniques based on a neurophysiological control mechanism. These procedures are totally reversible. The methods involve chronic neurostimulation of the spinal cord or the cerebellum. There are only a few patients for whom this is indicated. Conversely, chronic intrathecal administration of baclofen, using an implantable pump, is well established in the treatment of diffuse spasticity of spinal origin. From reports in the literature, we critically review the respective indications in terms of function, clinical progression and the topographic extent of the spasticity.

The effect of GABA agonists, namely gamma aminobutyric acid, muscimol, sodium valproate and baclofen was studied on radiant heat-induced nociception in mice. All of the buy lioresal online drugs, with the exception of sodium valproate, enhanced the reaction time to radiant heat as effect per se. Concomitant administration of any of these agents with morphine showed a potentiation of morphine-induced analgesia. The GABA antagonists bicuculline and picrotoxin failed to reverse the antinociceptive effect; paradoxically both these agents showed antinociceptive effect per se and also enhanced the response due to morphine.

The neurobiological approach to consciousness moves from the assumption that all phenomenal experiences are based on neuronal activity in the brain. Consciousness has two main components: wakefulness and awareness. While it may be relatively easy to determine the neuronal correlates of wakefulness, it is not the same for awareness, of which the neural correlates are poorly understood. Knowledge of the circuitry and the neurochemistry of the sleep/wake condition is necessary but not sufficient to understand the circuitry and neurochemistry of consciousness. Disorders of consciousness (DOCs) include coma, vegetative state and minimally conscious state. The study of DOCs and of the electrophysiological changes underlying general anaesthesia-induced loss of consciousness may help in understanding the neuronal correlates of consciousness. In turn, the understanding of the neural bases of consciousness may help in designing interventions aimed at restoring consciousness in DOC patients. Sporadic cases of recovery from a DOC have been reported after the administration of various pharmacological agents (baclofen, zolpidem, amantadine etc.). This review provides an overview of such drugs, which are from various and diverging classes but can be grouped into two main categories: CNS stimulants and CNS depressants. The available buy lioresal online data seem to suggest an awakening effect obtained with CNS depressants rather than stimulants, the latter being more effective at improving functional cognitive and behavioral recovery in patients who have spontaneously regained an appreciable level of consciousness. There is a need for more rigorous systematic trials and further investigation of the above treatments, with particular attention paid to their mechanisms of action and the neurotransmitters involved.

Two anorexic agents, fenfluramine and sibutramine, induced the activation of 5-HT(1B) receptors located on presynaptic GABAergic terminals, thus reducing the release of GABA. This action can alter the strength of synaptic afferents that modify the activity of dopaminergic neurons, inducing neuronal excitation. Our results reveal an additional mechanism of action for fenfluramine and sibutramine that might contribute to reducing food intake, by influencing the pleasurable and motor aspects of feeding buy lioresal online behaviour.

Recent in vivo and in vitro studies regarding the involvement of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-ergic systems in analgesia and in opiate dependence have been reviewed and analyzed. It seems evident that GABA-ergic systems play a role in mediating the effects of opiates and that some interplay might exist between endogenous opioid systems and GABA-ergic systems. Systemic administration of GABA-agonists, GABA uptake blockers and inhibitors of GABA-alpha-oxoglutarate transaminase (GABA-T) can produce potent analgesic actions in experimental animals and in buy lioresal online man. Further study of such agents might lead to the development of new analgesics and/or new drugs for treating certain types of drug addiction.

The aim of this work was the identification of pharmacologically distinct subtypes of gamma-aminobutyric acidB (GABAB) receptors in the central nervous system. Inasmuch as GABAB receptors are often sited on axon terminals where they mediate inhibition of transmitter release, we chose as models the GABAB receptors mediating inhibition of release of 1) endogenous GABA; 2) endogenous glutamate; and 3) somatostatin-like immunoreactivity (SRIF-LI). The experimental set up consisted of rat cerebrocortical synaptosomes depolarized in superfusion with 12 or 15 mM KCl. Endogenous GABA and glutamate were measured by high-performance liquid chromatography and SRIF-LI by radioimmunoassay. The selective GABAB receptor agonist (-)-baclofen inhibited in a concentration-dependent manner the K(+)-evoked release of GABA, glutamate and SRIF-Ll with similar potencies and efficacies [EC50 values, 1.1-1.5 microM; maximal inhibition, 45-50% at about 10 microM (-)-baclofen]. The GABAB receptor antagonist phaclofen concentration-dependently reduced the effects of (-)-baclofen on the release of GABA and SRIF-Ll but not on the release of glutamate, where it was ineffective up to 1000 microM. The rank order of potency (Ki values are shown in parentheses) are: SRIF-Ll (7.8 microM); GABA (10.4 microM); and glutamate (greater than 115 microM). The novel GABAB receptor antagonist 3-aminopropyl(diethoxymethyl) phosphinic acid (CGP 35348) displayed a buy lioresal online different pattern on the three release systems examined (Ki values are shown in parentheses): SRIF-Ll (0.38 microM); glutamate (0.48 microM); and endogenous GABA (greater than 115 microM).(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

The mu-selective agonist DAMGO, tested over a dose range of 0.005-0.05 microg, had an effect at the highest dose only, where it produced a reduction in self-administration maintained by doses of either 10 microg/kg or 30 microg/kg per infusion of nicotine. Intra-VTA microinfusions of DAMGO did not reinstate extinguished responding previously established for nicotine, nor did they have prominent effects on operant behavior maintained by food. In contrast to the overall buy lioresal online limited effects of DAMGO on nicotine self-administration, the GABA agonists muscimol and baclofen each reduced nicotine self-administration substantially when delivered into the VTA, whereas they were less effective against cocaine self-administration.

Effects of inhibitory neurotransmitters on the locomotor rhythm and pattern generation were investigated using an in vitro preparation isolated from the mudpuppy (Necturus maculatus). The preparation consisted of the first five segments of the spinal cord and the right forelimb attached by the brachial nerves. During N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA)-induced locomotion, the rhythmic motor output (EMG) was recorded unilaterally from elbow flexor and extensor muscles. While neither glycine nor gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-related substances induced locomotion in the absence of NMDA, they modulated NMDA-induced locomotion. Bath application of glycine and GABA suppressed the rhythmic motor pattern induced by NMDA. Addition of glycine receptor antagonist strychnine or GABA(A) receptor antagonist bicuculline disrupted the phase relationship between antagonistic motor pools during ongoing locomotion, thereby changing the normal alternating pattern into synchronous EMG bursts. Both the GABA(A) receptor agonist muscimol and GABA(B) receptor agonist baclofen mimicked the buy lioresal online effects of GABA as they either slowed down or stopped locomotion. Nipecotic acid, a GABA uptake blocker, had a similar effect. This suggested that an endogenous release of GABA modulated the locomotor rhythm. The endogenous release was antagonized by the GABA(A) and GABA(B) receptor antagonists bicuculline and CGP-35348, respectively. Immunocytochemistry revealed that glycine and GABA-positive neurons and fibers were present in mudpuppy spinal cord. Although the GABAergic neurons were more numerous than glycinergic neurons, both cell types contributed processes directed towards the white matter and occasionally towards the ependymal lining of the central canal. Our results suggest that inhibitory neurotransmitters exert powerful actions upon the neuronal network governing forelimb locomotion in the mudpuppy. The effects we observed may be mediated by a network of segmentally distributed glycinergic and GABAergic spinal neurons.

1. Monoarthritis was induced in Lewis rats by interdermal injection in the left hind paw of a suspension of Mycobacterium tubercolusis in mineral oil (500 micrograms 100 Stromectol Order Online microliters-1). Controls were injected with 100 microliters mineral oil. 2. Withdrawal latencies to thermal stimuli of the inflamed paw, the contralateral and both paws of control rats were measured at daily intervals after injection by the plantar test. 3. After detection of the pain threshold, rat spinal cords were removed and horizontal dorsal slices were mounted in a 3-compartment bath to measure electrically-evoked release of substance P-like immunoreactivity (SP-LI). 4. The inflamed paw of monoarthritic rats exhibited a lower pain threshold to thermal stimuli than the contralateral paw of the same animals and both paws of control rats. Inflamed paw hyperalgesia was maximal two days after injection, and declined gradually between 7 to 21 days with no evidence of excitability of withdrawal reflexes after 28 days. 5. During the 28 days study, monoarthritic rats gained less weight than control rats. 6. Electrical stimulation of the dorsal roots attached to rat isolated spinal cord slices induced a significant increase (174 +/- 18% of basal outflow which was 30.3 fmol 8 ml-1, n = 5) in SP-LI release. 7. One-week after induction of inflammation no differences in the amount of SP-LI released from the spinal cord of incomplete Freund's adjuvant-treated rats (IFA) and Freund's adjuvant-treated rats (CFA) were detected. Two weeks after, CFA spinal cord tended to release more SP-LI than IFA cords and, 21 days after injection, the spinal cord of CFA rats released significantly more peptide than IFA rats (17.8 +/- 2.8 fmol ml-1, n = 12 and 6.9 +/- 3.2 fmol ml-1, n = 9, respectively).8. Twenty-one days after treatment, the evoked release from monoarthritic rat spinal cords was increased by 263 + 42% (n = 3) in the presence of the GABAB receptor antagonist, CGP 36742 (100 micro M)which also significantly potentiated monoarthritis-induced hyperalgesia up to 45 min after injection(100 mgkg-1, i.p.).9. These findings may provide a basis for a novel approach to chronic pain therapy but also an explanation for the lack of analgesia produced by the GABAB agonist, baclofen, in chronic as compared to acute pain.

1. The role of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) as an inhibitory transmitter in the central nervous system is well documented. Recently, GABAA and GABAB receptors have been identified in the peripheral nervous system, notably on primary afferent neurones (PAN). We have utilised a multi-superfusion system to investigate the effect of selective GABA receptor agonists and antagonists on the release of substance P (SP) from the rat trachea in vitro. 2. GABA (1-100 microM) did not affect spontaneous release of SP-like immunoreactivity (LI) but caused dose-related inhibition of calcium-dependent potassium (60 mM)-stimulated SP-LI release. The greatest inhibition of 77.7 +/- 18.8% was observed at 100 microM. 3. The inhibitory effect of GABA was mimicked by the GABAB receptor Sporanox Online agonist, (+/-)-baclofen (1-100 microM), but not the GABAA receptor agonist, 3-amino-1-propane-sulphonic acid (3-APS, 1-100 microM). Baclofen (100 microM) had no effect on SP-LI release stimulated by capsaicin (1 microM). 4. The inhibitory effect of baclofen (30 microM) was significantly reduced by prior and concomitant exposure to the GABAB receptor antagonist, phacolofen (100 microM) but not the GABAA receptor antagonist, bicuculline (10 microM). Neither antagonist, alone, affected spontaneous or potassium-stimulated SP-LI release. 5. We conclude that activation of pre-synaptic GABAB receptors on the peripheral termini of PANs in the rat trachea inhibits SP-LI release and suggest that GABAB receptor agonists may be of value in the therapeutic treatment of asthma.

The suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN) at the base of the hypothalamus are known to be the site of the endogenous circadian pacemaker in mammals. The SCN are innervated by the retinohypothalamic tract, which conveys photic information to the SCN. GABA is one of the most abundant neurotransmitters in the SCN, and has been implicated in the modulation of photic responses of the SCN circadian pacemaker. This study sought to examine the effect of GABAergic compounds on optic nerve-evoked SCN field potentials recorded in rat horizontal hypothalamic slices. The GABAA agonist muscimol (10 microM) potentiated SCN field potentials by 23%, while application of the GABAA antagonist bicuculline (10 microM) inhibited SCN field potentials by a similar amount, (22%). Conversely, the GABA, agonist baclofen (1.0 microM) inhibited SCN field potentials by 48%, while the GABAB antagonist phaclofen (0.5 mM) augmented SCN field potentials by 62%. Recordings performed at both day and night times indicate that there were no qualitative day-night differences in GABAergic activity on SCN field potentials. This study concludes that, in general, GABAA activity tends to increase, and GABAB activity tends to decrease Zovirax Drug Interactions the response of SCN neurons to optic nerve stimulation.
