The objective of the present study was to fabricate and evaluate a multiparticulate oral gastroretentive dosage form of baclofen characterized by a central large cavity (hollow core) promoting unmitigated floatation with practical applications to alleviate the signs and symptoms of spasticity and muscular rigidity. Solvent diffusion and evaporation procedure were applied to prepare floating microspheres with a central large cavity using various combinations of ethylcellulose (release retardant) and HPMC K4M (release modifier) dissolved in a mixture of dichloromethane and methanol (2:1). The obtained microspheres (700-1000 µm) exhibit excellent floating ability (86 ± 2.00%) and release characteristics with entrapment efficiency of 95.2 ± 0.32%. Microspheres fabricated with ethylcellulose to HPMC K4M in the ratio 8.5:1.5 released 98.67% of the entrapped drug in 12 h. Muscle relaxation caused by baclofen microspheres impairs the rotarod performance for more than 12 h. Abdominal X-ray images showed that the gastroretention period of the floating barium sulfate- labeled microspheres was no less than 10 h. The buoyant baclofen microspheres provide a promising gastroretentive drug delivery system to deliver baclofen in spastic patients with a sustained release rate.

We have previously shown that the caudal nucleus tractus solitarii is a site of action of some antitussive drugs and that the caudal ventral respiratory group (cVRG) region has a crucial role in determining both the expiratory and inspiratory components of the cough motor pattern. These findings led us to suggest that the cVRG region, and possibly other neural substrates involved in cough regulation, may be sites of action of antitussive drugs. To address this issue, we investigated changes in baseline respiratory activity and cough responses to tracheobronchial mechanical stimulation following microinjections (30-50 nl) of some antitussive drugs into the cVRG of pentobarbital-anesthetized, spontaneously breathing rabbits. [D-Ala(2),N-Me-Phe(4),Gly(5)-ol]-enkephalin (DAMGO) and baclofen at the lower concentrations (0.5 mM and 0.1 mM, respectively) decreased cough number, peak abdominal activity, and peak tracheal pressure and increased cough-related total cycle duration (Tt). At the higher concentrations (5 mM and 1 mM, respectively), both drugs abolished the cough reflex. DAMGO and baclofen also affected baseline respiratory activity. Both drugs reduced peak abdominal activity, while only DAMGO increased Tt, owing to increases in expiratory time. The neurokinin-1 (NK(1)) receptor antagonist CP-99,994 (10 mM) decreased cough number, peak abdominal activity, and peak tracheal pressure, without affecting baseline respiration. The NK(2) receptor antagonist MEN 10376 (5 mM) had no effect. The results indicate that the cVRG is a site of action of some antitussive agents and support the hypothesis that several neural substrates involved in cough regulation may share this characteristic.

From 295 patients, 27 had CT contrast study; in three of them, baclofen could not be aspirated and the procedure was stopped, eight had normal scan and did not need surgery and 16 patients were reported. Four patients had normal CT (free contrast formed a perfect crescent shape), and had surgery because the pump battery was close to expiration. Five patients had inadequate fluid pooling (fluid was seen without a crescent shape). Five patients had fluid leak (fluid was seen around the pump or in the lumbar canal below catheter entrance level or outside the canal in the lumbar region). Two patients had catheter occlusion (fluid loculation around the catheter tip with no free flow).

A highly enantioselective methodology for the synthesis of the GABA(B) receptor agonist (R)-(-)-baclofen is described. This synthesis begins with p-chlorophenethyl alcohol and involves a catalytic carbon-hydrogen insertion reaction of a chiral dirhodium(II) carboxamidate with the corresponding diazoacetate (81% yield, 95% ee). Subsequent steps convert the intermediate gamma-lactone to (R)- (-)-baclofen in a 60% overall yield. The amount of catalyst required for the C-H insertion transformation is only 0.5 mol%.

A case with de novo interstitial deletion of chromosome 7q21.1-q22: A patient with multiple congenital anomalies was found to have a de novo proximal interstitial deletion of chromosome 7q21.1-q22. The patient was 10.5 years of age, and manifestations include growth retardation (below 3rd percentile), mental retardation, mild microcephaly, hypersensitivity to noise, mild spasticity, short palpebral fissures, alternant exotropia, compensated hypermetropic astigmatism, hypotelorism, hypoplastic labia majora and minora, clinodactyly of fingers 4 and 5. Molecular studies revealed that the deletion had a paternal origin, while chromosomes of both parents cytogenetically were shown to be normal. Molecular, and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) analyses confirmed no deletion at the Williams-Beuren Syndrome region. Some of the heterogeneous clinical findings were consistent with previously reported cases of same chromosomal breakpoints.

Twelve healthy volunteers (HVs) and 12 patients with gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD); with erosive oesophagitis or pathological oesophageal acid exposure completed a randomised, double-blind, cross-over study. On 2 test days participants received 40-mg baclofen or placebo before ingestion of a large test meal. OGJ structure and function were assessed by high-resolution manometry (HRM) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) using validated methods. Measurements of the oesophago-gastric angle were derived from three-dimensional models reconstructed from anatomic MRI images. Cine-MRI and HRM identified postprandial reflux events. Mixed model analysis and Wilcoxon rank signed tests assessed differences between participant groups and treatment conditions.

In previous work we have shown that GABAB receptors are required for expression of absence seizures in the lethargic (lh/lh) mouse model; that lh/lh mice have increased numbers of GABAB binding sites compared to nonepileptic littermates (designated +/+); and that the magnitude of the increased number of GABAB receptors in lh/lh mice correlated positively with the frequency of absence seizures. We performed this study to delineate the neural network in which GABAB receptors regulate absence seizures in lh/lh mice. We designed three successive screens which had to be passed by a candidate neuronal population before it could be considered a member of the neural network in which GABAB receptors regulate absence seizures. First, the neuronal populations in lh/lh mice had to have enriched GABAB binding sites compared to homologous populations in matched nonepileptic controls; baclofen-displaceable 3H-GABA binding was measured in autoradiograms for this screen. Second, the candidate populations had to generate spike-wave discharges (SWDs) during absence seizures in lh/lh mice; bipolar recording electrodes implanted into candidate neuronal structures were used in this screen. Third, the candidate populations had to demonstrate GABAB receptor-mediated regulation of absence seizures in lh/lh mice; microinjections of a GABAB agonist [(-)-baclofen] and antagonist (CGP 35348) were used for this screen. In this study we found that anterior ventral lateral thalamic nucleus (VLa), nucleus reticularis thalami (NRT), nucleus reuniens (RE) passed all three screens, and hence are members of the neural network in which GABAB receptors regulate absence seizures in lh/lh mice.

In many human alcoholics, abstinence is self-imposed because of the negative consequences of excessive alcohol use, and relapse is often triggered by exposure to environmental contexts associated with prior alcohol drinking. We recently developed a rat model of this human condition in which we train alcohol-preferring P rats to self-administer alcohol in one context (A), punish the alcohol-reinforced responding in a different context (B), and then test for relapse to alcohol seeking in Contexts A and B without alcohol or shock. Here, we studied the role of projections to nucleus accumbens (NAc) shell from ventral subiculum (vSub), basolateral amygdala, paraventricular thalamus, and ventral medial prefrontal cortex in context-induced relapse after punishment-imposed abstinence. First, we measured double-labeling of the neuronal activity marker Fos with the retrograde tracer cholera toxin subunit B (injected in NAc shell) and demonstrated that context-induced relapse is associated with selective activation of the vSub→NAc shell projection. Next, we reversibly inactivated the vSub with GABA receptor agonists (muscimol+baclofen) before the context-induced relapse tests and provided evidence for a causal role of vSub in this relapse. Finally, we used a dual-virus approach to restrict expression of the inhibitory κ opioid-receptor based DREADD (KORD) in vSub→NAc shell projection neurons. We found that systemic injections of the KORD agonist salvinorin B, which selectively inhibits KORD-expressing neurons, decreased context-induced relapse to alcohol seeking. Our results demonstrate a critical role of vSub in context-induced relapse after punishment-imposed abstinence and further suggest a role of the vSub→NAc projection in this relapse.

A male patient with paraplegia at T-5 (ASIA-A) had implantation of Medtronic Synchromed 8615 s programmable pump to control intractable spasms. After 4 years, the baclofen pump needed replacement because of battery exhaustion. At this time, he was taking oxybutynin 2.5 mg twice a day. He wore a penile sheath and performed intermittent catheterisation three times a day. Intravenous urography showed no dilatation of pelvicalyceal systems or ureters. During the course of the next 4 months, the dose of baclofen had to be increased gradually to 820 microg/day in order to control the spasms. Investigations revealed disconnection of the tube from the pump. The patient decided to undergo explantation of the pump and discontinue intrathecal baclofen therapy altogether. Following removal of the pump, he was prescribed baclofen 20 mg four times a day and diazepam 5 mg twice a day. He continued penile sheath drainage with oxybutynin 2.5 mg twice a day. Although spasms were controlled with oral baclofen and diazepam, he started getting transient, mild headache during reflex voiding. After nearly 2 years, he developed unbearable and pounding headache while passing urine.

γ-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) is the main inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. The inhibitory action of GABA is mediated by the receptors present on the cell membrane and results in a reduction of neuronal excitability. At least three types of GABA receptors have been characterized. Table 1 summarizes some of the general properties of these three types of GABA receptors. GABAA receptors are ligand-gated chloride channels. They mediate fast inhibition and have a wide distribution throughout the central nervous system. GABAA receptors have a diverse molecular composition. At least 16 subunits in six groups have been identified. Pharmacologically, these receptors are antagonized by bicuculline. GABAA receptors are also the targets of many therapeutic compounds (such as general anaesthetics, sedative drugs, and alcohols). These compounds allosterically modulate GABAA receptor channel activities. GABAB receptors belong to the G-protein-coupled receptor superfamily. The inhibition of GABAB receptors is mediated by indirect gating of either potassium or calcium channels. GABAB receptors are activated by baclofen and antagonized by phaclofen and saclofen. The subunits of GABAB receptors have recently been cloned. GABAC receptors are the newly identified member of the GABA receptor family. They are also linked to chloride channels, with distinct physiological and pharmacological properties. In contrast to the fast and transient responses elicited from GABAA receptors, GABAC receptors mediate slow and sustained responses. Pharmacologically, GABAC receptors are bicuculline- and baclofen-insensitive and are not modulated by many GABAA receptor modulators (such as benzodiazepines and barbiturates). GABA ρ subunits are thought to participate in forming GABAC receptors on the neuronal membrane, but the exact molecular composition of these receptors is yet to be determined. GABAC receptors are expressed in many brain regions, with prominent distributions on retinal neurons, suggesting that these receptors play important roles in retinal signal processing.

Effects of systemically administered gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) on indomethacin-induced gastric ulceration were studied in rats. Orally administered GABA significantly exacerbated the ulceration in a dose-dependent manner, although GABA per se had no ulcerogenic activity. The exacerbation was restored by GABA receptor antagonists, bicuculline methiodide, picrotoxin and pentylenetetrazol. Pretreatment with atropine sulfate antagonized the exacerbating effect of GABA on indomethacin-induced ulceration. 3-Amino-1-propanesulfonic acid, but not glycine, taurine or beta-alanine, mimicked the effect of GABA on the ulceration, which was inhibited by picrotoxin. Muscimol and (-)-baclofen could not potentiate the ulceration. However, sodium pentobarbital and diazepam caused synergistic exacerbation of the ulcer when combined with GABA. Since it is known that systemically administered GABA can not penetrate into the brain, these results suggest that systemically administered GABA may stimulate the cholinergic transmission mediating the activation of peripheral GABA receptors, resulting in the exacerbation of indomethacin-induced ulceration.

The history of neurosurgery for spasticity is strongly linked to the beginning of neurosurgery. With the discovery of the stretch reflex by Sherrington and the quality of the clinical studies at that time, especially the description of the different kinds of hypertonia by Babinski, the new surgeons of the nervous system started early with interruption procedures on dorsal roots (Foerster) or peripheral nerves (Lorenz, Stoffel). In France, this field of functional neurosurgery grew rapidly. Gros in Montpellier improved the technique of dorsal rhizotomy, while Sindou in Lyons, created the technique of drezotomy after studies on pain mechanisms. The history was then followed in Chicago by Penn and Kroin who developed the technique of intrathecal baclofen which indications are still increasing today. Improvement of knowledge on neurophysiology and control of movement lead to an optimisation of the surgical procedures where French speaking neurosurgery plays an important role.

Research on mechanisms of drug action, and preclinical screening of molecules with a potential activity on neuropathic pain requires extensive animal work. The chronic constriction injury model is one of the best-characterized models of neuropathic pain behavior in rats, but requires extensive time consuming operations and animal handling. The formalin test is easier to perform, and a well validated model. The latter may serve as an effective prescreening test of molecules and may facilitate drug targeting. In the present study the activity of different pharmacological reference compounds was tested in rats and gerbils on the cold plate for animals that had undergone chronic constriction injury and in the second phase of the formalin test. In rats, a comparable outcome in both test conditions was observed for morphine, fentanyl, MK-801 and flunarizine. Clonidine had more activity in the second phase of the formalin test, whereas baclofen, tramadol, amitryptiline, ketamine and topiramate showed more activity in the cold plate. In gerbils, both test conditions yielded comparable results for fentanyl and ketoprofen. Tramadol and CP-96345 tended to have more activity in the second phase of the formalin test, whereas morphine, SR-48968, SR-142801 and R116301 demonstrated more activity in the cold plate test. This study demonstrates a good correlation between the second phase of the formalin test and the cold allodynia in the CCI model for, both for rats and gerbils. Drugs with a proven activity in humans, used as reference compounds, also showed good pharmacological activity in this animal study.

In order to evaluate whether the stimulating effect of GABA on growth hormone (GH) secretion changes in patients affected by Parkinson's disease, ten male parkinsonian patients and ten age matched normal controls were tested with the GABA derivative and GABAergic agent Baclofen (10 mg in a single oral administration at 09.00 h) (experimental test). In a different occasion, normal men and parkinsonian patients were tested with a placebo (control test). Basal GH levels were similar in normal controls and parkinsonian patients and remained unmodified during the control test. Plasma GH levels rose three times within 120 min after the administration of baclofen in the normal subjects. In contrast, plasma GH concentrations remained unmodified after baclofen treatment in the parkinsonian patients. In agreement with previous reports in the literature showing alterations of GABAergic neurotransmission in the parkinsonian brain, these data show a reduced GABAergic control of GH secretion in patients with Parkinson's disease.

Bilateral injection of the GABAA receptor agonist muscimol (0.25, 0.5 and 1 μg/rat) produces an anxiolytic-like effect, shown by significant increases in the percentage of open-arm time (%OAT) and percentage of open-arm entries (%OAE). Intra-mPFC administration of the GABAA receptor antagonist bicuculline (0.25, 0.5 and 1 μg/rat) produces significant anxiogenic-like behaviour. However, intra-mPFC injection of the GABAB receptor agonist baclofen (0.05, 0.1 and 0.2 μg/rat) and the GABAB receptor antagonist CGP35348 (5, 10 and 15 μg/rat) did not alter %OAT and %OAE significantly.

Synaptic plasticity, cognitive performance, learning, and memory appear to be determined by the balance between GABAergic inhibitory and glutaminergic excitatory amino acids (EAA). To evaluate this role of amino acids the effects of baclofen (0.5 mg/kg IP), GABA-B receptor agonist and AP-7 (5 nmol ICV)-NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartate) receptor antagonist on the processes of retrieval, consolidation of conditioned reflexes, object recognition, and locomotor activity were tested in rats. Neither AP-7 nor baclofen alone changed locomotor activity, but coadministration of AP-7 and baclofen significantly decreased this activity in the open-field test. Neither AP-7 nor baclofen influenced retrieval or consolidation in the passive avoidance situation when administered alone. Significantly prolonged retrieval and consolidation were observed when AP-7 and baclofen were given together. We did not find differences in effects of either AP-7 or baclofen on object recognition, regardless whether administered alone or in combination.

The neural circuitry underlying movement detection was inferred from studies of amacrine cells under whole-cell patch clamp in retinal slices. Cells were identified by Lucifer yellow staining. Synaptic inputs were driven by "puffing" transmitter substances at the dendrites of presynaptic cells. Spatial sensitivity profiles for amacrine cells were measured by puffing transmitter substances along the lateral spread of their processes. Synaptic pathways were separated and identified with appropriate pre- and postsynaptic pharmacological blocking agents. Two distinct amacrine cell types were found: one with narrow spread of processes that received sustained excitatory synaptic current, the other with very wide spread of processes that received transient excitatory synaptic currents. The transient currents found only in the wide-field amacrine cell were formed presynaptically at GABAB receptors. They could be blocked with baclofen, a GABAB agonist, and their time course was extended by AVA, a GABAB antagonist. Baclofen and AVA had no direct affect upon the wide-field amacrine cell, but picrotoxin blocked a separate, direct GABA input to this cell. The narrow-field amacrine cell was shown to be GABAergic by counterstaining with anti-GABA antiserum after it was filled with Lucifer yellow. Its narrow, spatial profile and sustained synaptic input are properties that closely match those of the GABAergic antagonistic signal that forms transient activity (described above), suggesting that the narrow-field amacrine cell itself is the source of the GABAergic interaction mediating transient activity in the inner plexiform layer (IPL). Other work has shown a GABAB sensitivity at some bipolar terminals, suggesting a population of bipolars as the probable site of interaction mediating transient action. The results suggest that two local populations of amacrine cell types (sustained and transient) interact with the two populations of bipolar cell types (transient forming and nontransient forming). These interactions underlie the formation of the change-detecting subunits. We suggest that local populations of these subunits converge to form the receptive fields of movement-detecting ganglion cells.

GABAB receptors regulate the intracellular Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) in a number of cells (e.g., retina, airway epithelium and smooth muscle), but whether they are expressed in vascular endothelial cells and similarly regulate the [Ca2+]i is not known. The purpose of this study was to investigate the expression of GABAB receptors, a subclass of receptors to the inhibitory neurotransmitter γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA), in cultured human aortic endothelial cells (HAECs), and to explore if altering receptor activation modified [Ca2+]i and endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) translocation. Real-time PCR, western blots and immunofluorescence were used to determine the expression of GABAB1 and GABAB2 in cultured HAECs. The effects of GABAB receptors on [Ca2+]i in cultured HAECs were demonstrated using fluo-3. The influence of GABAB receptors on eNOS translocation was assessed by immunocytochemistry. Both GABAB1 and GABAB2 mRNA and protein were expressed in cultured HAECs, and the GABAB1 and GABAB2 proteins were colocated in the cell membrane and cytoplasm. One hundred μM baclofen caused a transient increase of [Ca2+]i and eNOS translocation in cultured HAECs, and the effects were attenuated by pretreatment with the selective GABAB receptor antagonists CGP46381 and CGP55845. GABAB receptors are expressed in HAECs and regulate the [Ca2+]i and eNOS translocation. Cultures of HAECs may be a useful in vitro model for the study of GABAB receptors and vascular biology.

GHB is an endogenous neurotransmitter synthesized from glutamate with a high affinity for GHB-receptors, present on both on pre- and postsynaptic neurons, thereby inhibiting GABA release. In overdose, GHB acts both directly as a partial GABA(b) receptor agonist and indirectly through its metabolism to form GABA.

We studied the actions of isoflurane (IFL) applied in aqueous solutions on ventrobasal neurons from thalamic brain slices of juvenile rats. By using the whole cell, patch-clamp method with current- and voltage-clamp recording techniques, we found that IFL increased a noninactivating membrane conductance in a concentration-dependent reversible manner. In an eightfold concentration range that extended into equivalent in vivo lethal concentrations, IFL did not produce a maximal effect on the conductance; this is consistent with a nonreceptor-mediated mechanism of action. TTX eliminated action potential activity but did not alter IFL effects. The effects on the membrane potential and current induced by IFL were voltage independent but depended on the external [K+], reversing near the equilibrium potential for K+. External Ba2+ or internal Cs+ applications, which block K+ channels, suppressed the conductance increase caused by IFL. External applications of the Ca2+ channel blockers Co2+ or Cd2+ or internal application of the Ca2+ chelator 1,2-bis-(2-aminophenoxy)-ethane-N,N, N',N'-tetraacetic acid did not prevent the effects of IFL, implying little involvement of Ca2+-dependent K+ currents. A contribution of inwardly rectifying K+ channels to the increased steady-state conductance seemed unlikely because IFL decreased inward rectification. An involvement of ATP-mediated K+ channels also was unlikely because application of the ATP-mediated K+ channel blocker glibenclamide (1-80 microM) did not prevent IFL's actions. In contrast to spiking cells, IFL depolarized presumed glial cells, consistent with an efflux of K+ from thalamocortical neurons. The results imply that a leak K+ channel mediated the IFL-induced increase in postsynaptic membrane conductance in thalamic relay neurons. Thus a single nonreceptor-mediated mechanism of IFL action was responsible for the hyperpolarization and conductance shunt of voltage-dependent Na+ and Ca2+ spikes, as reported in the preceding paper. Although anesthetics influence various neurological systems, an enhanced K+ leak generalized in thalamocortical neurons alone could account for anesthesia in vivo.

The mechanism of control of GAD expression by GABA and excitatory amino acids (EAAs) was studied in chick and rat retina cultures using immunohistochemical and PAGE-immunoblot detection of the enzyme, as well as by measuring enzyme activity. Aggregate cultures were prepared with retina cells obtained from chick embryos at embryonic days 8-9 (E8-E9). Organotypical cultures were also prepared with retinas from E14 chick embryos, post-hatched chicken and P21 rats. GABA (1-20 mM) fully prevented GAD expression in aggregate and organotypical cultures from chick embryo buy lioresal retinas. A substantial, but not complete, reduction of GAD was also observed in organotypical cultures of post-hatched chicken and P21 rats, in which both forms of the enzyme (GAD65 and 67) were affected. The GABA effect was not mimicked by THIP (100 microM), baclofen (100 microM) or CACA (300 microM), agonists of GABAa, b and c receptors, respectively. NNC-711, a potent inhibitor of GABA transporters, reduced by 50% the inhibition of GAD activity promoted by GABA. Aggregates exposed to GABA and treated with glutamate (5 mM) or kainate (100 microM) displayed an intense GAD-like immunoreactivity in many cell bodies, but not in neurite regions. Immunoblot analysis revealed that the increase in GAD-like immunoreactivity by EAA corresponded to a 67-kDa protein. However, GAD activity was not detected. Treatment of aggregates or retina homogenates with SNAP, a NO producing agent (but not its oxidized form), reduced GAD activity by more than 60% indicating that the lack of enzyme activity in GAD-like immunoreactive cells, could be due to NO production by EAA stimulation.

The enhancement of brainstem reflexes in SCI patients may be due to plastic changes at the brainstem level after SCI. The significant reduction in response size in patients with CITB in comparison with patients without baclofen suggests that the enhancement of brainstem reflexes buy lioresal may be due to decreased GABAergic activity and that CITB is effective in reducing abnormal brainstem hyperexcitability.

1--Theophylline (35, 50 mg/kg) potentiated the antinociceptive action of intraperitoneally administered baclofen in the tail flick and hot plate tests. Potentiation was most marked when the pretreatment time was 1 h, but some potentiation was still apparent following a 2 h pretreatment. 2--Theophylline alone (50 mg/kg) produced only slight alterations in reaction latency in the two tests. 3--When baclofen was applied directly into the spinal subarachnoid space, a 1 h pretreatment with theophylline produced minimal effects, but a 2 h pretreatment produced an increase in the antinociceptive action of baclofen. 4 buy lioresal --These results suggest that theophylline can potentiate the antinociceptive action of baclofen by actions at both supraspinal and spinal sites.

The second-order relay neurons of the slowly-adapting pulmonary stretch receptors (SARs) are called pump neurons (P cells) and are located in the nucleus tractus solitarii (NTS). We have shown recently that P cells do not act merely as simple relay neurons of SAR afferents but also receive rhythmic inputs from the central respiratory system. This study aimed to analyze two aspects of the respiratory inputs to P cells: (1) suppression of P cell firing at early inspiration (eI suppression) and (2) facilitation of P cell firing at around the period from late inspiration to early expiration (IE facilitation). This study employed extracellular recordings combined with iontophoretic applications of neuroactive drugs to single P cells, in Nembutal-anesthetized, paralyzed, and artificially ventilated rats. The results showed that several excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters were involved in these synaptic events. First, the glycine antagonist strychnine and the GABA(A) antagonist bicuculline were applied to identify the neurotransmitters acting in eI suppression. Strychnine greatly diminished eI suppression, but bicuculline buy lioresal had little effect. This suggested that eI suppression was elicited by inspiratory neurons that were glycinergic and had a decrementing firing pattern. Second, on the other hand bicuculline markedly enhanced IE facilitation as well as the baseline frequency of P cell firing. The enhancement of IE facilitation was distinctive even when the effects of increased baseline firing on this enhancement were taken into account. Third, IE facilitation was diminished by applications of the NMDA glutamate receptor antagonists D-2-amino-5-phosphonovaleric acid (APV) and dizocilpine (MK-801). These results suggested that glutamatergic synapses on P cells from some unidentified respiratory neurons form excitatory inputs for IE facilitation and GABA(A) receptor-mediated processes control the strength of IE facilitation, possibly at the presynaptic level. Finally, iontophoretic application of the non-NMDA glutamate receptor antagonist, 6-cyano-7-nitroquinoxaline-2, 3-dione disodium (CNQX), almost completely abolished P cell firing in response to both lung inflation and electrical stimulation of the vagus nerve. This confirmed the previous report that glutamate is the primary neurotransmitter at the synapses between SAR afferents and P cells. We concluded that complicated synaptic inputs involving glycinergic and GABAergic inhibitions, and non-NMDA and NMDA glutamate receptor-mediated excitations form the basic pattern of P cell firing.

Taurine has been postulated to function as a neurotransmitter or neuromodulator. The possibility of depolarization-evoked buy lioresal release of taurine from nerve terminals, and the effects of taurine on release of endogenous glutamate (Glu), aspartate (Asp), and gamma-aminobutyrate (GABA) were examined using a superfusion of crude synaptosomes prepared from rat cerebral cortex. Taurine contents in cerebral cortex and its synaptosomes were 31.7 and 25.2 nmol/mg protein, respectively. Although the basal rate of taurine release was 35.3 pmol/min/mg protein of synaptosomes (second highest releasing rate), the 2-min stimulation with KCl (30 mM) evoked only a 1.3-fold increase in release of taurine (47.3 pmol/min/mg). The increase was largely Ca(2+)-dependent. The addition of taurine to the perfusion medium significantly reduced the depolarization-evoked increases in Glu, Asp, and GABA release. The taurine-induced reduction in GABA release was attenuated by phaclofen, a GABAB antagonist, but not by bicuculline, a GABAA antagonist. However, these antagonists did not block the effects on Glu and Asp release. These data suggest that taurine may be only partly released from nerve terminals by depolarization in the cerebral cortex, but that taurine may act upon nerve terminals to regulate the release of excitatory and inhibitory amino acid transmitters.

Decorticate rigidity is a type of abnormal posturing that Lioresal Drug Information can make it difficult to move a patient and to change the patient's position to prevent a decubitus ulcer. This condition poses a latent risk of bed sores. To prevent those complications, we used electroacupuncutre for decorticate rigidity of the upper limbs in a patient with anoxic brain damage. A 51-year-old man complained of rigidity of both of the upper and lower extremities due to anoxic brain damage. His rigidity was exhibited as flexed arms and extended legs, which are the typical positions in decorticate rigidity. Prior to electroacupuncture, his decorticate rigidity was treated with dantrolene sodium and baclofen. However, his rigidity had not improved. This patient received total 41 sessions of electroacupuncture. The patient's Modified Ashworth's Scale changed from 4 at baseline to 2 after the treatment, indicating an improvement in the rigidity of the upper limbs. Preston's Hypertonicity Scale and passive ROM of the elbow joints also improved. We report the observed effects of electroacupuncture for decorticate rigidity of the upper limbs in a patient with anoxic brain damage. Further controlled studies are needed to determine whether electroacupuncture is a useful alternative treatment for decorticate rigidity in patients with anoxic brain damage.

Neurotransmission in isolated hemisected spinal cord preparations from immature rats was depressed by micromolar levels of baclofen (threshold 0.5 microM). The depressant action of baclofen was not antagonised by bicuculline and baclofen, unlike GABA, did not depolarize primary afferent fibres. Neurotransmission in isolated vas deferens, anococcygeus muscle and superior cervical ganglion of the rat was unaffected by baclofen (0.1-1 mM). Depolarization of motoneurones, as recorded in ventral roots of tetrodotoxin-blocked spinal cord preparations, induced by excitant amino acids, substance P, noradrenaline or carbachol was unaffected by baclofen (250 microM or higher). The depressant action of baclofen on spinal cord preparations was similar to that produced by the excitant amino acid antagonist alpha,epsilon-diaminopimelic acid. A structure-activity study showed that the (--)-isomer of baclofen was over 20 times more potent than the (+)-isomer as a spinal depressant. Also the position and nature of the halogen substitutent in the ring is critical with baclofen giving optimal activity. It is concluded that the depressant action of baclofen from depression of the presynaptic release of excitant amino acid transmitter( Levitra 5mg Review s).

Interest in high-dose baclofen treatment for alcohol dependence has increased over the past few years. In the meantime, the rate of acute baclofen poisoning has increased and life-threatening cases have been reported. Thus, severity of acute poisoning could lessen the benefit of baclofen treatment. Our aim was to evaluate the severity of acute baclofen poisoning independently of confounders and to assess whether severity is correlated with the reported ingested dose. We prospectively included consecutive patients with acute and deliberate baclofen overdose and compared them with gender and age-matched patients from a retrospective cohort of common acute medicine self-poisoning. The primary end-point was the adjusted risk ratio of mechanical ventilation. We also analysed the lengths of mechanical ventilation and risks of aspiration pneumonitis and convulsions. We finally examined the correlation between the supposed reported ingested dose and the severity of poisoning. Fourteen baclofen-poisoned patients were included and matched to 56 poisoned patients. Median age was 45 y/o (40-58), and men comprised 43% of patients. In logistic regression, the adjusted risk ratio of mechanical ventilation was 7.9 (1.4-43.5; p Vermox And Alcohol =0.02) for baclofen-treated patients. Aspiration pneumonitis was more frequent in baclofen-treated patients (29% versus 2%; p=0.005), and the length of mechanical ventilation was significantly correlated with the reported ingested dose of baclofen (Spearman coefficients: 0.48; p<0.001). Our results show that acute baclofen poisoning is more severe than other acute medicine overdoses, and severity seems to be correlated with the ingested dose of baclofen. These results raise some questions about the safety of high-dose baclofen treatment for alcohol dependence.

Recent evidence suggests that an excitant amino acid may be a neurotransmitter at acoustic nerve synapses in cochlear nucleus (CN). Release of excitant amino acids is reportedly reduced by baclofen, a lipophilic GABA-mimetic used to treat the spasticity of multiple sclerosis and spinal injury. Microiontophoresis of (-)baclofen suppressed spontaneous and tone-evoked activity in CN neurons. GABA inhibited the responses of most neurons responsive to (-)baclofen. However, iontophoresis of these two substances onto the same CN neuron resulted in dramatic differences in time course to maximum effect and to recovery. Onset and offset of (-)baclofen-induced firing reduction were gradual at all doses (currents), but even the highest doses rarely caused total suppression of firing. Inhibition of firing by GABA was abrupt, and total suppression was frequently observed over the range of doses used. GABA desensitization (fading) commonly occurred while the (-)baclofen response never faded. The same CN neurons were also suppressed by D-alpha-aminoadipate, which blocks certain excitatory amino acid receptors, while the GABA antagonist bicuculline had no effect on the (-)baclofen response. These findings support the hypothesis that an excitant amino acid may be a transmitter at acoustic nerve synapses in CN.

GABAB receptors modulate swimming behavior in Paramecium by inhibiting dihydropyridine-sensitive Ca2+ channels via G-proteins. Prolonged occupancy of GABAB receptors by baclofen results in a decrease in GABAB receptor functions. Since changes in the number of cell-surface GABAA receptors have been postulated to be of importance in modulating inhibitory synaptic transmission in neurons, we have studied the cell-surface expression and maintenance of GABAB receptors in P. primaurelia. In this study, we use immunostaining in electron and confocal microscopy to demonstrate that constitutive internalization of GABAB receptors in P. primaurelia is mediated by clathrin-dependent and -independent endocytosis. Indeed, GABAB receptors colocalize with the adaptin complex AP2, which is implicated in the selective recruitment of integral membrane proteins to clathrin-coated vesicles, and with caveolin 1, which is associated with uncoated membrane invaginations. Furthermore, when endocytosis is blocked with hypertonic medium, cytosol acidification, filipin or with a peptide that disrupts the association between amphiphysin and dynamin, the effect of baclofen on swimming is increased. These results suggest that GABAB receptor endocytosis into clathrin-coated and -uncoated vesicles represents an important mechanism in the modulation of swimming behavior in Paramecium.
