Effects of naloxone, metenkephalin, and morphine on phencyclidine-induced behavior in the rat

, : Effects of naloxone, metenkephalin, and morphine on phencyclidine-induced behavior in the rat. Psychopharmacology 78(1): 76-80

The effects of naloxone, metenkephalin, and morphine were tested on phencyclidine(PCP)-induced stereotyped behaviors, ataxia, and hyperactivity in the rat. Naloxone (8 mg/kg) significantly decreased stereotypy, ataxia, and hyperactivity across all PCP doses tested (2.0, 4.0, and 6.0 mg/kg). Metenkephalin (40 micrograms/kg) and morphine (5 and 10 mg/kg) increased ataxia at the 4.0 and 6.0 mg/kg PCP doses. Stereotypy was altered by the opiates in a dose-dependent manner; enhanced by metenkephalin (40 micrograms/kg) at 2.0 mg/kg and inhibited by metenkephalin (40 micrograms/kg) and morphine (10 mg/kg) at 4.0 and 6.0 mg/kg PCP. Locomotor activity was increased by morphine (5 mg/kg) at 2 mg/kg PCP. These results suggest an involvement of central opiate receptor mechanisms in the mediation of PCP-induced behaviors in the rat.

The etiopathology of bone resorption in cholesteatoma is unclear. We studied pH in middle ear cholesteatoma tissue and the permeability of the cholesteatoma epithelium in an attempt to elucidate the mechanism of bone resorption in this disease. La...
