parlodel drug study

Treatment of patients with prolactinomas consists primarily of dopamine agonists (DA). Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leakage has sporadically been reported in patients with macroprolactinomas treated with short-acting DA such as bromocriptine. Little is known on the incidence of this complication in patients treated with the long-acting D2 specific DA cabergoline. We report three patients with CSF leakage shortly after initiation of cabergoline treatment for macroprolactinoma. All three patients responded rapidly to cabergoline (CAB) by shrinkage of the tumor and release of the optic chiasm compression. The CSF leakage occurred within 10 days after initiation of treatment. CAB treatment was not discontinued. In one patient the CSF leakage ceased spontaneously, with no additional therapy. The second patient had a surgical repair of the CSF fistula, permitting cabergoline to be continued without a recurrence of the CSF leakage. The third patient refused surgical repair of the sellar defect. In this patient the cabergoline dosage was temporarily decreased with no effect on the CSF leakage. Four years later, the CSF leakage is unchanged in this patient, whilst no other complications occurred during the follow-up. No infectious complications occurred in these three patients. In conclusion, patients with large, invasive macroprolactinomas are at risk of CSF leakage during medical treatment with CAB. It is advisable to warn these patients for occurrence of this complication and to monitor them closely especially during the first months of treatment.

Fourteen women with amenorrhea-galactorrhea were treated with bromo-ergocryptine. Serum prolactin hPRL, hLH, hFSH, estradiol 17-beta (E2), and progesterone values were determined before and during treatment. No consistent pretreatment hormonal pattern was found. During treatment hPRL levels fell in 13 of 14 patients, and E2 rose in 12 of 14 patients. Levels of hLH became normal, and amounts of hFSH did not change. Galactorrhea lessened in all cases and ceased in 11. Menses resumed in 11 patients and 3 women became pregnant. Cessation of galactorrhea and resumption of menses occurred irrespective of initial hPRL or hLH levels. It is suggested that improvement of galactorrhea and resumption of menses in some patients with normal hPRL values are the result of increased serum E2 levels and may be due to a direct action of bromo-ergocryptine on the ovary. Bromo-ergocryptine may also be effective in treatment of amenorrhea, unassociated with galactorrhea or elevated hPRL levels.

Neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS) continues to be an unpredictable and rare, but potentially fatal complication of antipsychotic medications. Presumptively linked to dopamine blockade, it nonetheless occurs in patients receiving newer atypical antipsychotics. The features of NMS, its pathophysiology, differential diagnosis, clinical course, risk factors, and morbidity and mortality are reviewed. Nonpharmacologic management centers on aggressive supportive care including vigilant nursing, physical therapy, cooling, rehydration, anticoagulation. Pharmacologic interventions include immediate discontinuation of antipsychotics, judicious use of anticholinergics, and adjunctive benzodiazepines. The utility of specific agents in actively treating NMS is reviewed. Bromocriptine and other dopaminergic drugs and dantrolene sodium have alternatively been considered without merit or efficacious. Guidelines for using these agents are presented. Electroconvulsive therapy, also somewhat controversial, is identified as a second line of treatment. Finally, management of the post-NMS patient is also reviewed.

parlodel reviews

The inhibitory effects of dopamine and various ergot alkaloids on prolactin secretion were studied using continuously perfused columns of dispersed rat anterior pituitary cells. Bromocriptine (5 nmol/l) and lisuride hydrogen maleate (5 nmol/l) both inhibited prolactin secretion, the effects persisting for more than 3 h after the end of the administration of the drugs. A similar although less long-lasting effect was observed with lergotrile (50 nmol/l) and the new ergoline derivative, pergolide (5 nmol/l). These effects contrasted with the rapid disappearance of the action of dopamine. The potency estimates of the ergots relative to that of dopamine were: lergotrile, 2.3; bromocriptine, 13; lisuride, 15; pergolide, 23. Ther dopamine-receptor blocking drugs, metoclopramide and haloperidol, antagonized the prolactin release-inhibiting activity of the compounds; bromocriptine and lisuride showed the highest resistance to this dopaminergic blockade. The results suggested that the direct effect of the ergot derivatives on dispersed pituitary cells was mediated through dopamine receptors and emphasized the long-lasting action of bromocriptine and lisuride in vitro.

We conducted an open label investigation of bromocriptine treatment in 7 patients with active non-life threatening SLE. Patients received bromocriptine daily during the treatment phase of 6 to 9 months and were followed for 5 months after bromocriptine was discontinued. Disease activity was assessed by determination of the SLE activity Measure (SLAM) and the Toronto SLE Disease Activity Index (SLEDAI). Serum prolactin concentrations and a battery of serologic and urine tests were obtained at baseline and at monthly intervals during and after bromocriptine treatment.

Four beagle bitches were treated orally, twice daily with 250 micrograms bromocryptine, an inhibitor of prolactin secretion, from D1-D5 (D1 is defined as the first day of the luteal period) until the onset of the next prooestrus (n = 2) or the end of the luteal period (n = 2) of the following cycle. The mean interoestrous interval in the experimental group (123.3 +/- 23.1 day; n = 4) was significantly (p less than 0.001) shorter than the average of the mean values of the interoestrous interval (245.9 +/- 8.8 day; n = 36) of 10 control bitches. This shortening is mainly a consequence of a reduction to 35% of the anoestrous period of normally cyclic dogs. The luteal period of the first cycle was shortened to 78% compared with the luteal period of control dogs and this is also a contributing factor.

A 49-yr-old woman presented with an extensive prolactinoma (serum PRL > 10,000 mU/L, normal range < 450 mU/L). Over a 5-yr period following transsphenoidal surgery and pituitary irradiation, she became increasingly resistant to high doses of bromocriptine and underwent transfrontal surgery followed by stereotactic radiotherapy. In spite of these treatments, serum prolactin estimations rose progressively to > 100,000 mU/L. Magnetic resonance imaging scanning demonstrated a massive cystic tumor invading the temporal lobes, extending into the cervical and thoracic spine, with metastases to cervical lymph nodes. High-dose cabergoline administration resulted in a 30% decrease in serum PRL. Octreotide was administered as a continuous sc infusion with a profound analgesic effect on facial pain but with no effect on tumor progression. She was treated with a course of chemotherapy consisting of carboplatin and etoposide without any noticeable effect. The patient died 6 months following chemotherapy. Immunocytochemical analysis demonstrated positive nuclear staining for WAF-1, Rb protein, c-myc, and p53 both in the original and metastatic tumors. The metastases but not the primary tumor stained for c-jun. Metastatic prolactinoma remains a therapeutic challenge. It is associated with a variable proto-oncogene expression, which may be coincidental or causal. Cabergoline had no advantage over bromocriptine. Octreotide relieved facial pain but did not alter tumor progression. An effective therapy for metastatic prolactinoma remains to be identified.

Normal aging brings with it changes in dopaminergic and memory functions. However, little is known about how these 2 changes are related. In this study, we identify a link between dopamine, episodic memory networks, and aging, using pharmacological functional magnetic resonance imaging. Young and older adults received a D2-like agonist (Bromocriptine, 1.25 mg), a D2-like antagonist (Sulpiride, 400 mg), and Placebo, in a double-blind crossover procedure. We observed group differences, during memory encoding, in medial temporal, frontal, and striatal regions and moreover, these regions were differentially sensitive across groups to dopaminergic perturbation. These findings suggest that brain systems underlying memory show age-related changes and that dopaminergic function may be key in understanding these changes. That these changes have behavioral consequences was suggested by the observation that drug modulations were most pronounced in older subjects with poorer recognition memory. Our findings provide direct evidence linking ageing, memory, and dopaminergic change.

Monoaminergic neuronal systems have been implicated in the mechanisms of action of most ergot derivatives (including those that are clinically useful and those that are "hallucinogenic"). Among the various assays that have been useful in determining the extent of such involvement is drug discrimination. In this procedure, animals are trained to respond in one way (e.g., press the right lever) following saline and to respond differently (e.g., press the left lever) after either a particular ergot or a neurotransmitter agonist, and are subsequently tested with other ergots, transmitter agonists or antagonists (alone or in combination with the training drug). The results to date indicate that: 1) There are similarities in the discriminable effects of lergotrile, lisuride and bromocriptine, which probably involve catecholaminergic neuronal systems (DA or NE). 2) These effects are clearly separable from those of ergonovine and LSD, which may be relatively more serotonergic. More precise delineation of the mechanisms underlying these cues (e.g., D1, D2-selective agonism, antagonism, etc.) awaits further testing with highly specific pharmacological interventions.

The effects of somatostatin and bromocryptine were examined in patients bilaterally adrenalectomized because of Cushing's disease, in one of whom Nelson's syndrome had developed. Following a 250 microgram (152 nmol) somatostatin bolus, administered i.v., a further 250 microgram *152 nmol) somatostatin was given by infusion over 90 minutes. In all patients the high basal value of the serum ACTH was considerably decreased 60 minutes after the bolus, but after 240 minutes the basic value was almost restored. In the patients without Nelson's syndrome the plasma ACTH decreasing action of oral 2.5 mg (3.38 mumol) bromocryptine exceeded 300 minutes. In the Nelson's syndrome patient the early ACTH-decreasing effect of bromocryptine was greater, but after 300 minutes the ACTH level had risen to nearly twice the basic value.

Other clinicians have reported atypical presentations of NMS in patients taking newer neuroleptic agents. Although this patient met diagnostic criteria for NMS, the hallmark symptoms of fever and muscle rigidity were delayed in onset. Also, the patient never remained febrile for more than 24 hours and her maximum temperature was only 38.6 degrees C. An objective causality assessment suggests that this case of NMS was probably related to restarting risperidone.

The medical history of 9 patients interested in childbearing are studied. They all had a high prolactin level, infertility, alteration in the menstrual cycle and in the majority (8/9) breast secretion. The results obtained with the usage of Parlodel (by the oral route) complemented with ovulation induction are evaluated, as well as existing local restrictions to permit fulfilling the various diagnostic procedures, oriented to define the etiology of the above mentioned clinical entity.

Ten patients with clinical, laboratory and radiographic evidence compatible with the diagnosis of prolactinoma were treated with two dopamine agonists. One group (N = 6) took bromocriptine and the other group (N = 4) used pergolide, a longer-acting agent. Both medications were found to reduce prolactin levels significantly from baseline, but an oscillatory pattern with significant fluctuation was seen in the mean prolactin levels in the patients taking bromocriptine. Three patients did not achieve euprolactinemia on bromocriptine, 2.5 mg qid, the maximum dose used in this study. All of the study group taking pergolide became euprolactinemic rapidly; no more than a single dose of 100 micrograms/day was required. Tumor reduction was noted in two patients taking bromocriptine and two taking pergolide. The duration of side effects was shorter and compliance was improved on pergolide therapy.

During the 13-year period 1970-1983 only 7 cases of multiple endocrine neoplasia type I (MEN I) were seen at Groote Schuur Hospital, suggesting that the associated gene is rare in this area. Only 1 of these patients was black. Endocrine associations were as follows: hyperparathyroidism--6 cases, pituitary hypersecretion--6 cases (3 each involving growth hormone and prolactin), and pancreatic hypersecretion--3 cases (2 of gastrinoma and 1 of insulinoma). The presenting features were predictably diverse and depended on the component which manifested first. There was little difficulty in reaching a diagnosis on routine investigation. All patients with hyperparathyroidism underwent a 3 1/2-gland parathyroidectomy as the first treatment procedure, normocalcaemia being achieved in 5 cases, but persistent hypercalcaemia in the 6th suggested a supernumerary gland. A pituitary adenoma was removed in 4 cases, but persistent prolactinaemia necessitated bromocriptine therapy in 3. Successful distal pancreatectomy was undertaken in a patient with insulinoma and a patient with gastrinoma, and a further patient with gastrinoma awaits surgery. The overall prognosis in cases of MEN I appears to depend on the most aggressive component, often the pancreatic lesion; our patients have run a surprisingly benign course with only 1 late death, from hypertensive heart disease.

The secretion of GH in two siblings with clinical dwarfism and high GH plasma levels (the mean of several basal values; 233.83 ng/ml in patient A and 178.16 in patient B has been studied with several dynamic tests. An arginine infusion increased GH levels in both cases (+193.55% for A, +140.27% for B). No significant modifications were obtained with oral glucose tolerance test +18.70% for A, +24.32% for B). A bolus of somatostatin almost completely prevented the rise in GH levels in response to arginine. Pretreatment with bromocryptine clearly increased basal GH plasma levels (A, +58.66%; B, +56.03%) and the response to arginine. As in the case of a normal hypothalamus, the hypothalamus of Laron's syndrome responds to arginine and bromocryptine, with GH elevations. Somatostatin suppresses GH levels. A lack of response to glucose can be considered as a nonspecific effect of the very low biological activity of the stimulus in a hyperstimulated hypothalamus. We suggest that GH secretion by the hypothalmo pituitary system in Laron's syndrome is normal, and that GH hyperproduction may be due to a generalized defect in GH receptors or to the low levels of somatomedin.

Two cases of TSH-secreting pituitary adenoma were reported. Endocrinological and immunohistochemical features of these cases were described and problems in diagnosis and treatment of the rare disease are discussed. [case 1] A 28 year-old woman suffered from hyperthyroidism with a relatively high value of serum TSH (T3; 350 ng/dl, T4; 10.0 micrograms/dl, TSH; 24.5 microU/ml). She was treated with antithyroid drug and then underwent subtotal thyroidectomy. Although the levels of serum T3 and T4 were lowered to within normal range, the level of serum TSH still remained high. One month later, she developed frontal headache, amenorrhea and bitemporal hemianopsia. A CT scan showed an enhanced mass in the sellar and suprasellar region. Preoperative endocrinological studies showed elevated values of TSH (47 microU/ml) and its alpha-subunit (9.0 ng/ml). The levels of both T3 (190 ng/dl) and T4 (10.0 micrograms/dl) were near the upper normal limit. Serum TSH was suppressed by administration of exogenous T3, but did not respond to exogenous TRH, l-Dopa nor bromocriptine. Under the diagnosis of TSH-secreting pituitary adenoma, the patient was operated on by craniotomy and received local radiation therapy (50 Gy). In 1990, 12 years after the treatment, she is well and endocrinologically normal. Immunohistochemical study revealed that most tumor cells were positive for TSH. [case 2] A 28 year-old woman visited our hospital for examination of hyperthyroidism. Serum level of TSH was detectable (4.5 microU/ml). A CT scan performed at that time disclosed no pituitary tumor. Thyroid function was normalized by antithyroid drug, but the level of TSH was still high and progressively increased.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

The effects of prolactin (PRL) and androgen on the seminal vesicles of immature C3H/HeJ mice were studied. Glands from controls exhibited secretory activity and full differentiation. Glands from castrates were small, markedly atrophic with some stromal hyperplasia and moderate leukocytic infiltration. Testosterone-treated castrates were similar to intact controls. Perphenazine appeared to stimulate the rough endoplasmic reticulum (RER), Golgi, and secretory activity of the epithelium in the intact and castrated mice. Normal secretory granules were not made in the perphenazine-treated castrates, but a flocculent material usually was present in the RER, Golgi, and secretory vacuoles. Bromocriptine reduced cell height and secretory activity in intact mice and promoted anaplasia and epithelial proliferation in castrates. PRL seems to be required for the seminal vesicles to complete and maintain cytological development, but the effect of PRL may be different in the presence or absence of testicular androgens.

Pituitary adenomas represent the only true adenomas of the cranial cavity. In 1000 asymptomatic pituitary glands examined at autopsy, there was a 22.4 per cent incidence of undetected microadenomas. Advances in diagnostic endocrinology, in radiologic imaging, and in surgical and medical treatments have brought many more patients to the attention of the authors. Over the last 10 years, their treatment approaches have evolved to those presented in this article.

Symptoms of Parkinsonism, most likely induced by an oral contraceptive, were greatly reduced by combined therapy of nicergoline and bromocriptine. A 38-year-old housewife had taken an oral contraceptive, which contained .05 mg of ethinyl estradiol and .5mg of norgestrel per tablet, for 7 years, when she presented took the following symptoms: she stumbled easily, took short, quick dancing/skating steps without arm movement, and found it increasingly difficult to keep slippers on while walking. In the afternoons she experienced extreme fatigue and rigidity in her lower limbs. After a while, languor spread to other parts of her body as well, and she was examined on April 5, 1991. The patient's face was mask-like, and her body was bent forward with her forearms flexed. She showed frozen gait and lowered initiation in her movement. Muscle rigidity was found in both upper and lower extremities, and especially on the right side. A brain MRI showed lacunar infraction with small patches of high signal intensities in the white matter of the bilateral frontal lobes and high signal intensities in the left periventricular white matter. Urine was normal; blood cholesterol and iron were slightly raised. Hormonal examinations showed lowered LH, FSH, progesterone and 24-hr 17-KGS. CT was normal. She was ordered to stop taking pills and to take nicergoline and bromocriptine, which greatly reduced these symptoms except during the first menstruation following the treatment. When mask-like facial expressions, demarche a petit pas, and languor in her lower extremities did not recur during the next menstruation, bromocriptine treatment was discontinued. Four months later nicergoline therapy was also discontinued.

Patient 1 had a 5-mm pituitary microadenoma that was initially diagnosed at age 30 years. After initial diagnosis, she was treated with transvaginal bromocriptine for 9 years and then subsequently went untreated for 2 years. After developing symptoms of amenorrhea, decreased libido, and hyperprolactinemia, oral cabergoline, 0.5 mg twice weekly, was initiated. Her prolactin concentration remained elevated at 80 ng/mL while taking cabergoline. Her prolactin concentration decreased to 13 ng/mL after her regimen was switched to bromocriptine, 5 mg daily. Patient 2 had a 17-mm pituitary macroadenoma that was initially diagnosed at age 15 years. Oral cabergoline was started at 0.5 mg twice weekly and increased to 1 mg 3 times weekly when prolactin levels buy parlodel continued to rise to 340 ng/mL over 18 months. After visual field defects developed, transsphenoidal surgery was performed. One year after surgery, magnetic resonance imaging showed a 6- to 7-mm pituitary adenoma, and there was a gradual rise in serum prolactin. Her serum prolactin concentration continued to rise to 212 ng/mL with increasing tumor size over 3 years. Cabergoline was discontinued and oral bromocriptine was initiated at a dosage of 10 mg daily. After 4.5 months of bromocriptine therapy, her serum prolactin concentration decreased to 133 ng/mL. However, after 2 months, the macroadenoma continued to increase in size and a visual field defect developed, so another transsphenoidal operation was performed.

These responses were reduced in a dose-dependent manner by pretreatment with morphine. 3. The buy parlodel inhibitory effect of morphine was reversed by naloxone. 4. Naloxone alone induced slight but significant yawning. 5. The present results suggest that morphine inhibits yawning in rats at an opiate receptor downstream from the sites at which cholinoceptor and dopamine D2 activation induce yawning. The anatomical location of these sites remains to be established.

A case of an older patient with the Angelman syndrome due to a deletion at the 15q11-q13 region is presented. The patient demonstrated generalized prolonged myoclonus severe enough to produce temperatures of 41.4 degrees C and CPK elevations to 7281 U/l. This myoclonus was unresponsive to benztropine, clonazepam and worsened with bromocriptine. It resolved with sleep induced by either lorazepam or diphenhydramine and during treatment with reserpine. Once discharged from the hospital and treated with reserpine, there were much less frequent buy parlodel recurrences of the myoclonus that responded well to concomitant treatment with clonazepam. Later attempts to reduce the reserpine resulted in worsening of the myoclonus. Older patients with Angelman syndrome may display a wide variety of neurologic syndromes. This severe myoclonus in this patient worsened with dopamine agonist treatment and initially improved with dopamine depletion therapy while in the long-term responding best to a combination of clonazepam and reserpine.

Prolactinomas rank first in frequency among hormone-secreting pituitary adenomas, but their management remains controversial. The authors present a review of the literature concerning the various therapeutic methods used and their results. As regards microadenomas, opinions buy parlodel are divided since the results obtained with bromocriptine and with selective adenomectomy are about the same. As regards macroadenomas, surgery exposes to more frequent complications and above all to recurrences. The majority of authors is in favour of bromocriptine first followed, if necessary, by surgical excision. Pregnancy may accelerate the development of prolactinomas. This risk is minimal with microadenomas and more real with macroadenomas, requiring more radical treatment before pregnancy and close monitoring.

The dopamine (DA) D2/3 receptor agonists quinpirole (0.5-8.0 mg kg buy parlodel -1, s.c.) and 7-OH-DPAT (0.2-3.2 mg kg-1, s.c.), but not the preferential DA D2 receptor agonist bromocriptine (2.0-32.0 mg kg-1, s.c.), produced increased plasma oxytocin levels in the rat. In keeping with their affinity for the DA D2 receptor, all three compounds produced a marked suppression of plasma prolactin levels in their respective dose range. It is suggested that DA D3 receptors are involved in mechanisms regulating oxytocin secretion in the rat.

Fifteen Thai patients with Parkinson's disease (7 females, 8 males) were enrolled in an open label trial of pergolide (a new dopamine agonist) to evaluate its safety and efficacy. Inpatients and outpatients from Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University, Bangkok 10700, Thailand from 1992 to 1994 were included in the study with a total duration of 18 weeks. Both de novo patients and patients who were being treated with levodopa without dopamine agonist and were obtaining a less than optimal response at both visit 1 and visit 2 were all enrolled in this study. At entry into the study, 3 patients had Hoehn and Yahr stage I, 7 patients at stage II, 3 patients at stage III, and 2 patients at stage IV. Pergolide dosage was gradually built up until an optimal dosage was achieved. The average dose of pergolide during the study was 0.94 mg/day (range 0.075 to 8 mg/day). All patients completed the study and no patients dropped out. Two patients (13.33 per cent) experienced nausea (on 0.4 mg/day and 0.075 mg/day), two patients (13.33 per cent) experienced sleepiness (0.50 mg/day and 0.075 mg/day) and one patient (6.67 per cent) unsteadiness on walking ( buy parlodel 0.50 mg/day). There was one patient who required pergolide up to 8 mg/day which is higher than the recommended dosage (5 mg/day) but this patient experienced no adverse effects and his disabled dyskinesic was abolished. Our study demonstrated the good toleration and efficacy of pergolide treatment for Thai patients with Parkinson's disease. This new dopamine agonist stimulates both D1 and D2 receptors in comparison to other dopamine agonists (bromocriptine and lisuride) which stimulate only D2 receptors.

Plasma levels of androstenedione (A) and dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHAS) were measured in 29 women with PCO in an attempt to classify PCO. A and/or DHAS were elevated in all cases. In cases with DHAS levels below 2,000 ng/ml, the A levels were found to be over 1.4 ng/ml. This group was defined as an ovarian type because the major source of A is the ovary. In contrast, women whose DHAS levels were higher than 2,000 ng/ml were classified as an adrenal type. In both groups, the hormonal features were elevated LH levels and exaggerated LH response to LHRH. The mean A levels were 2.43 +/- 0.31 ng/ml in ovarian type and 2.20 +/- 0.42 ng/ml in adrenal type. The mean DHAS levels for the adrenal type were 3,052 +/- 299 ng/ml, or about 3 times as high as normal values. On the other hand, those for the ovarian type were on buy parlodel the upper borderline of the normal range. In both groups, dexamethasone lowered DHAS levels by about 80% with no discernible effect upon A levels. The successful rate for ovulation-induction by clomiphene was 20% in the ovarian and 33% in the adrenal. Bromocriptine induced ovulation in 8 out of 9 cases of the ovarian type. However, only one of 6 responded to bromocriptine in the adrenal type. Bromocriptine-unresponsive cases of the adrenal type ovulated following treatment with combination of clomiphene and prednisolone. In summary, we attempted to classify PCO into ovarian and adrenal types by analyzing the elevated androgen level. This classification seems to be useful in the treatment of PCO and also provides some insight into the pathogenesis of PCO.

Dopamine is known as the main neurotransmitter modulating the activation of the reward system of the brain. The DRD2 TaqIA polymorphism is associated with dopamine D2 receptor density which plays an important role in the context of reward. Persons carrying an A1 allele have a lower D2 receptor density and a higher risk to show substance abuse. The present study was designed to investigate the influence of the DRD2 TaqIA polymorphism and the selective D2 receptor agonist bromociptine on the activation of the reward system by means of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). In a double-blind crossover study with 24 participants we found an increase of reward system activation from placebo to bromocriptine only in subjects carrying the A1 allele buy parlodel . Furthermore, only A1 carrier showed an increase of performance under bromocriptine. The results are interpreted as reflecting a specific sensitivity for dopamine agonists in persons carrying an A1 allele and may complement actual data and theories of the development of addiction disorders postulating a higher genetic risk for substance abuse in carrier of the A1 allele.

It is not known whether the beneficial effect of bromocriptine on glucose homeostasis in acromegaly is limited by a certain duration of therapy. To elucidate this problem, oral glucose tolerance tests were performed in 12 acromegaly patients before bromocriptine medication, under therapy (15.0 +/- 6.8 mg/day for 12 +/- 3 years), and during a 2-week drug withdrawal after long-term treatment. Initially altered glucose tolerance was normalized in 4 of 5 patients under bromocriptine therapy. During drug withdrawal the mean fasting glucose level and the mean glucose concentration at 120 min after oral glucose load increased from 5.05 +/- 0.61 to 5.77 +/- 0.78 mmol/l and from 5.61 +/- 2.05 to 7.55 +/- 3.05 mmol/l, respectively. A deterioration in glucose homeostasis was observed in 9 patients, and impaired glucose tolerance was ameliorated (but not to normal range) in 2 when bromocriptine was withdrawn. The proportion of alterations in glucose Cipro 850 Mg tolerance during drug withdrawal corresponded to that before the beginning of long-term bromocriptine treatment. Impaired glucose tolerance, observed in 2 patients under bromocriptine treatment, seemed to be compensated because a distinct elevation of glycosylated hemoglobin A1c was not observed. Bromocriptine led to a significant decrease in basal as well as glucose-stimulated insulin levels, and growth hormone secretion during oral glucose load was reduced in all 12 patients.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

The effect of dopamine on 3',5'-cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) generation in the rabbit renal artery was studied. Dopamine added to homogenates of rabbit renal artery increased the concentration of cAMP. The stimulation of cAMP levels elicited by dopamine was remarkably reduced by the dopamine receptor antagonists fluphenazine and haloperidol, but it Coreg And Alcohol was unaffected by the ergot-like dopaminergic agonist bromocriptine. These findings appear to indicate that the effects of dopamine on rabbit renal artery are mediated through a D1 receptor.

Three patients are described who suffered from Parkinson's disease and who also experienced severe pain. In one patient who had used Topamax Medicine psychotropic medication for a long period there was evidence of associated autonomic failure. It is suggested that the pain, which has some features of central pain with ill defined areas of involvement and lack of sensory abnormality, may occasionally be an important aspect of Parkinson's disease and indeed can precede the onset of this extrapyramidal disorder. Possible mechanisms are discussed including the influence of dopaminergic pathways on pain modulation. The importance of recognising the pain of Parkinson's disease is stressed.

Pituitary and testicular hormone secretion and sex-hormone binding globulin (SHBG) level were investigated in 15 males with active acromegaly in normal and hyperprolactinemic state. Basal serum folitropin (FSH) and lutropin (LH) levels did not change before and after the administration of bromocriptine and remained in normal Luvox Dosage Forms range compared with those in healthy men. Serum total testosterone concentration and SHBG were decreased particularly in hyperprolactinemic patients, but their levels were significantly increased to the normal limits following bromocriptine application. Although slight changes in serum concentration of free testosterone (fT) and circadian rhythm of fT in saliva was observed before and following bromocriptine treatment, the statistical differences were not significant. The results of the present study suggest that in acromegaly the alterations in peripheral metabolism of sexual steroids may exist.

Objective. The aim of this study is to observe clinical outcomes after more than ten years of followup in a group of patients with invasive giant prolactinomas (IGPs) treated with dopamine agonists (DAs). Methods. Twenty-five patients met the criteria of IGPs, among which 16 patients primarily received bromocriptine (BRC) and the other nine had undergone unsuccessful microsurgery prior to BRC treatment. Results. After a mean follow-up period of 135.5 ± 4.7 months, the clinical symptoms in all patients improved by different degrees. Tumor volume was decreased by a mean of 98.6%, and the tumors of 19 patients had almost completely disappeared. The mean duration of treatment at maximal doses of BRC was 48.5 months. At the last follow-up visit, nineteen patients had normal PRL levels, and 14 of these patients had received the low-dose BRC treatment (at an average of 2.9 ± 0.3 mg/d). Younger patients < 25 years had a significantly higher rate of persistent hyperprolactinemia after long-term BRC treatment (p = 0.043). Conclusion. DAs are a first-line therapy for IGPs because they can effectively achieve long-term control in both shrinking tumor volume and normalizing the PRL level, and majority of patients need low-dose DA maintenance. Younger patients are Medication Zoloft prone to persistent hyperprolactinemia despite long-term DA treatment.

Five hundred fifteen Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) subjects (ages 18 to 80 and average body mass index [BMI] of 32.7) with baseline HbA1c ≥ 7.5 and on one or two oral anti-diabetes (OAD) medications (metformin, sulfonylurea, and/or thiazolidinediones) were randomized 2:1 to bromocriptine-QR (1.6 to 4.8 mg/day) or placebo for a 24 week treatment period. Study investigators were allowed to adjust, if necessary, subject anti-diabetes medications during the study to attempt to achieve glycemic control in case of glycemic deterioration. The impact of bromocriptine-QR treatment intervention on glycemic control was assessed in subjects on any one or two OADs (ALL treatment category) (N = 515), or on metformin with or without another OAD (Met/OAD treatment category) (N = 356), or on metformin plus a sulfonylurea (Met/SU treatment category) (N = 245) 1) by examining the between group difference in change from baseline a) concomitant OAD medication changes during the study, and b Zocor Drug ) HbA1c and 2) by determining the odds of reaching HbA1c of ≤ 7.0% on bromocriptine-QR versus placebo.

Pregnant mice were treated with antiserum to LH or bromocriptine to inhibit the activity of LH and prolactin, respectively. Luteal function was monitored by the radioimmunoassay of plasma progesterone. Bromocriptine treatment on Days 2 or 5 of pregnancy produced a rapid decrease in progesterone secretion, but had no effect on Biaxin 250 Mg luteal function when given on Days 6, 7 or 8 of gestation. Treatment with LH antiserum before implantation did not inhibit progesterone secretion, but luteal function was severely impaired when the antiserum was given on Days 5--9 of pregnancy. These results demonstrate the dynamic nature of luteal dependency on prolactin and LH, and indicate that LH is an essential component of the luetotrophic complex of the mouse.

We investigated whether the immunosuppressive effect of bromocriptine in mice is due to its direct effect on lymphocyte functions or through inhibition of prolactin secretion. Incubation of mouse Babl/c splenic lymphocytes with bromocriptine in vitro at a concentration of around 0.5 to 1 microgram/mL causes an inhibition of antigen- or mitogen-induced proliferation. However, bromocriptine in vitro has no effect on lymphokine production (gamma-interferon and interleukin-2), expression of interleukin-2 receptor or lymphocyte cytotoxic function. Furthermore, treatment of Babl/c mice with bromocriptine inhibits the mixed lymphocyte reaction and mitogen stimulation, as well as primary and secondary antibody production. However, we postulated that the inhibition of ex vivo functional activity could not account for a direct cytostatic or cytotoxic effect of bromocriptine. This is supported by the in vitro data, which shows that bromocriptine has no effect on proliferating P-815 mastocytoma tumor cells. Finally, (NZB/NZW) F1 mice spontaneously develop a disease similar to systemic lupus erythematosus. In both non-autoimmune Babl/c mice and (NZB/NZW) F1 lupus-mice, the serum level of bromocriptine achieved by a treatment with 5 mg/kg on average is 2-6 ng/mL. On the one hand, this dose is sufficient to significantly alter the ex vivo functional tests in Babl/c mice and to show a beneficial effect in the in vivo model of female lupus-mice. On the other hand, the lowest concentration which could have an inhibitory effect on antigen- and mitogen-induced proliferation in vitro is 200 ng/mL, ie 50 times more than that required in vivo to obtain significant reductions of proteinurea, glomerular membrane proliferation and immune deposits in lupus-mice. The serum levels of gamma-interferon and interleukin-2 are reduced in lupus-mice when compared with Babl/c mice. The treatment with bromocriptine does not influence these parameters. In conclusion, our Elavil 25mg Reviews data demonstrate that the major immunosuppressive activity of bromocriptine is probably dependent on its hypoprolactinemic effect.

Thirty patients with restless legs syndrome, who initially had all responded well to treatment with levodopa and benserazide, were studied as to the long-term effect of the drugs (at least 2 years). During the 2-year period, two patients were switched from levodopa to bromocriptine. Two patients no longer needed levodopa; one of them had developed paraplegia and in the other the symptoms of restless legs syndrome had disappeared completely. The remaining 26 patients continued to use levodopa. Eight patients maintained the original dose, nine had to use an increased dose, and nine found a decreased dose to be sufficient. The only side effect was transient nausea reported by two of the 30 patients. The study showed that the relief of symptoms of restless legs syndrome by dopaminergic drugs does not wear off with the passage of time, that side effects are minimal even with long-term use, and that the dose needed to obtain relief may increase as well Asacol Drug as decrease.

Bromocriptine, a dopamine agonist, inhibited secretion of PRL and did not affect GH release from rat anterior pituitary cells in culture. The reversal of this inhibition of PRL release by butaclamol, a dopamine antagonist, was stereospecific; 10 nM d-butaclamol completely reversed the inhibition caused by 10 nM bromocriptine, while l-butaclamol had no effect at concentrations up to 10 microM. However, both enantiomers at 10 microM inhibited PRL release to 30% and GH release to 91% of control values. Two other dopamine antagonists also inhibited hormone release. Haloperidol (10 microM) inhibited PRL release to 23% of control values and did not affect GH release; 3.3 microM pimozide inhibited PRL and GH release to 18% and 38% of control values, respectively. These data indicate that, the inhibition of PRL by antipsychotic drugs is not mediated through the dopamine receptor.

A study was conducted to determine whether exogenous opioids increase prolactin (PRL) secretion in Holstein heifer calves via a dopaminergic mechanism. Twenty-four Holstein heifer calves ranging in age from 5 to 7 mo were assigned to one of four treatment groups (six/treatment): 1) injection of saline (SAL); 2) injection of a synthetic enkephalin (D-Ala2, N-Me-Phe4, Met(O)5-ol enkephalin; DAMME); 3) injection of DAMME after pretreatment with the long-acting dopamine agonist 2-bromo-alpha-ergocryptine; or 4) injection of thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) after pretreatment with 2-bromo-alpha-ergocryptine. Calves were equipped with indwelling jugular cannulas on d 1, and baseline plasma PRL concentrations were established. Animals receiving 2-bromo-alpha-ergocryptine were injected s.c. 3 h after the last baseline sample was drawn on d 1. On d 2, calves assigned to receive SAL, DAMME, or TRH were injected 2 h after the start of sampling, and sampling was continued for an additional 4.5 h. Basal plasma PRL was lower (P less than .01) on d 2 in calves injected with 2-bromo-alpha-ergocryptine than baseline levels on d 1. Plasma PRL was higher (P less than .01) in calves not pretreated with 2-bromo-alpha-ergocryptine after DAMME injection on d 2 but was not different after DAMME injection in calves pretreated with 2-bromo-alpha-ergocryptine. In contrast, plasma PRL increased (P less than .01) after TRH injection on d 2 in calves pretreated with 2-bromo-alpha-ergocryptine.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Thirty-six male cocaine abusers, in withdrawal, were studied for 99 days in a double-blind design. Treatment with bromocriptine was significantly more effective than placebo in alleviating withdrawal symptoms. Adding desipramine to the bromocriptine regimen was significantly more effective than either placebo or bromocriptine alone. The authors hypothesize that these results support a model of dopamine depletion and receptor supersensitivity in cocaine withdrawal.

This study was designed to investigate the effect of calcium channel antagonist (nicardipine) on basal and bromocriptine-inhibited GH or PRL secretion in eight patients with pituitary adenomas (six GH producing adenomas and two prolactinomas). GH or PRL was measured in blood collected at intervals for 12 hours after oral administration of nicardipine (Nc) (40 mg) and/or bromocriptine (Br) (2.5 mg) in each case. In vitro, pituitary adenoma cells were incubated in media containing Nc (200 ng/ml) and/or Br (200 ng/ml) over a 72-h period, and then in drugs-free media for three days. Media were collected at 24-h intervals and assayed for GH or PRL. In three of six GH producing pituitary adenomas, GH secretion was inhibited by Nc both in vivo and in vitro. In prolactinomas, PRL secretion was inhibited by Nc in vitro, but in vivo, an increase of plasma PRL levels was observed after Nc administration in one of two cases. In two acromegalic patients and one patient with prolactinoma, Nc reduced the suppression of GH or PRL secretion induced by Br. These findings indicate that influx of extracellular calcium plays an important part in both GH and PRL secretion in functioning pituitary adenomas, and that Nc effects on GH and PRL secretion in pituitary adenomas by blocking of influx of calcium and/or antidopaminergic action. It is considered that the combined administration of calcium channel antagonist (Nc) and Br for acromegalic patients and administration of Nc for patients with prolactinomas should be avoided.
