    Background: Neurokinins (NKs) participate in asthmatic airway inflammation, but the effects of NKs on airway smooth muscle cells (ASMCs) and those of corticosteroids on NKs are unknown. Methods: To investigate the effect of budesonide on substance P (NK-1) receptor (NK-1R) expression in the lung...

    Asthma is a complex chronic inflammatory disease of the airways that involves the activation of many inflammatory and other types of cells. We investigated the effect of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) on allergic asthma in rats and compared its effect with that of the glucocorticoid budesonide....

    In vitro effect of M1-cholinoreceptor blockade on the cardiac inotropic function was examined in rats aging 1, 3, 6, 8, and 20 weeks. In 1- and 3-week old rat pups, the sympathetic control of the heart has not developed, the age of 7-8 weeks being pubertal. Adult 20-week rats were used as the...

    Background: In spite of a large amount of studies in anesthetized animals, isolated hearts, and in vitro cardiomyocytes, to our knowledge, myocardial function was never studied in conscious diabetic rats. Myocardial performance and the response to stress caused by dobutamine were examined in...

    Objective: To compare the effect of inhaled budesonide given daily or as-needed on mild persistent childhood asthma. Patients, design and interventions: 176 children aged 5-10 years with newly detected asthma were randomly assigned to three treatment groups: (1) continuous budesonide (400 μg...

  • Effect of ileo-jejunal transposition on ileal longitudinal smooth muscle contractility in vitro in rats Shibata, Chikashi; Funayama, Yuji; Fukushima, Kouhei; Ueno, Tatsuya; Nagao, Munenori; Naito, Hiroo; Unno, Michiaki; Shiiba, Ken-ichi; Matsuno, Seiki; Sasaki, Iwao // Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgery;Dec2004, Vol. 8 Issue 8, p1083 

    The aim of the present paper was to study the effects of ileo-jejunal transposition (IJT) on ileal contractile activity in vitro in rats. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into three groups: control, IJT, and sham. In rats with IJT, the distal ileum was interposed isoperistaltically into the...

    This study was designed to investigate the effect of 17β-estradiol on small intestinal motility of ovariectomized rats and the possible role of nitric oxide (NO) in this activity. A total of 24, 3 to 6 month-old female Sprague Dawley rats (270±20 g) were ovariectomized and divided into...

    Background In mild asthma exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB) is usually treated with inhaled short-acting ß2 agonists (SABAs) on demand. Objective The hypothesis was that a combination of budesonide and formoterol on demand diminishes EIB equally to regular inhalation of budesonide...
