lioresal medication

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.

The effect of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) on the release of [3H]acetylcholine [( 3H]ACh) from human cerebral cortex nerve terminals was investigated using synaptosomes prepared from neurosurgical specimens (which had to be removed to reach deeply located tumors) prelabeled with [3H]choline and exposed in superfusion to varying concentrations of GABA. The amino acid (3-100 microM) increased in a concentration-dependent manner (maximal effect: 40%; EC50 = 14.7 microM) the release of [3H]ACh but not that of [3H]choline. The GABAA receptor agonist muscimol (up to 100 microM) did not increase significantly the release of [3H]ACh. Accordingly, the effect of GABA was insensitive to the GABAA receptor antagonist bicuculline. The release of [3H]ACh was not affected by the GABAB receptor agonist (-)-baclofen (100-300 microM). The GABA-induced [3H]ACh release was counteracted by two inhibitors of GABA uptake, N-(4,4-diphenyl-3-butenyl)nipecotic acid (SKF 89976A) and nipecotic acid. Moreover, the enhancing effect of GABA on [3H]ACh release was clearly Na+-dependent and was reduced by almost 90% in presence of 23 mM NaCl. The data indicate that, similarly to what had been observed in the rat, cholinergic nerve terminals in the human cerebral cortex possess a GABA transporter. Activation of this carrier brings about release of newly synthesized ACh. GABA and ACh might co-exist in some cerebrocortical nerve endings in the vertebrate brain, including man.

lioresal review

We identified eight small poorly reported studies for inclusion. For the outcome of 'no clinically important improvement in tardive dyskinesia' GABA agonist drugs were not clearly better than placebo (n = 108, RR 0.83 CI 0.6 to 1.1). Deterioration in mental state was more likely to occur in people receiving GABA medication (n = 95, RR 2.47 CI 1.1 to 5.4), but this effect was influenced by the decision to assign a negative outcome to those who dropped out before the end of the study. A greater proportion of people allocated GABA medication may fail to complete the trial compared with those allocated placebo (20% versus 9%), but this difference was not statistically significant (n = 136, RR 1.99 CI 0.8 to 4.7). There is a suggestion of an increase in ataxia (loss of power of muscular coordination) for both baclofen and sodium valproate (n = 95, RR 3.26 CI 0.4 to 30.2), and in sedation (n = 113, RR 2.12 CI 0.8 to 5.4) compared with placebo, but this was not significant. Withdrawal of tetrahydroisoxazolopyridine (THIP) may cause seizures.

The N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist, AP7, was evaluated in two animal test procedures known to be sensitive to the effects of diazepam. In rats trained to discriminate diazepam from vehicle, AP7 produced dose-dependent generalization to the diazepam interoceptive stimuli. This NMDA antagonist also increased the rates of conflict responding in a chronic test procedure used to identify compounds with potential anxiolytic effects. A comparison of AP7 with diazepam and two muscle relaxants (methocarbamol and baclofen) showed that excitatory amino acid antagonists (of the receptor site stimulated by NMDA) produce a muscle relaxant effect (drug discrimination) and may represent a new class of compounds for the treatment of anxiety-related disorders (conflict test).

Experimental data has shown that sodium valproate has analgesic properties in animals, probably by way of the increase in cerebral and spinal gamma amino-butyric acid (GABA) it induces. A study was therefore designed to assess this analgesia in man in the postoperative period. A first open study was carried out on 12 consenting patients, who were each given 15 mg.kg-1 sodium valproate intravenously over 20 min. A significant decrease in pain intensity, measured by an analogic visual scale, was seen from the 20th min up to the 140th min. A controlled double-blind study was then carried out; it included three groups of 13 patients each. Patients in group 1 were given placebo (5% dextrose); group 2 patients were given 15 mg.kg-1 sodium valproate intravenously over 20 min, and group 3 patients 2 mg.kg-1 ketoprofen intravenously over 20 min also. There was no difference in the pain intensity profile of groups 1 and 2: sodium valproate was no more efficient than placebo in relieving postoperative pain. However, ketoprofen gave a prompt and effective analgesic effect. The clinical data obtained with sodium valproate in man during the postoperative period stand in contrast with the promising animal results. Sodium valproate cannot be recommended for the treatment of postoperative pain.

GABA(B) receptors mediate inhibition of neurotransmitter exocytosis from nerve endings. Unexpectedly, the well known GABA(B) receptor antagonist CGP35348 and, in part, the compound CGP52432, are now found to inhibit on their own the K(+)-evoked exocytosis of glycine when added at low micromolar concentrations to superfused mouse glycinergic nerve endings prelabelled with [(3)H]glycine through GLYT2 transporters. CGP35348 inhibited [(3)H]glycine release both in spinal cord and in hippocampus, but was also able to prevent the inhibitory effect of (-)-baclofen; CGP52432 exhibited intrinsic activity only in the hippocampus; in spinal cord, it behaved exclusively as a silent orthosteric antagonist by blocking the release inhibition brought about by (-)-baclofen. The intrinsic activity of CGP35348 in spinal cord was not prevented by CGP52432, indicating that CGP35348 is not a partial GABA(B) agonist in this experimental system. CGP54626, an extremely potent antagonist, exhibited only a minimal intrinsic activity. SCH50911, a GABA(B) antagonist belonging to a different chemical class, was devoid of significant activity, while phaclofen was effective only at 100-300 microM. In synaptosomes purified from the spinal cord or the hippocampus of mice lacking either the GABA(B1) (GABA(B1-/-) mice) or the GABA(B2) (GABA(B2-/-) mice) subunit, the evoked exocytosis of [(3)H]glycine was no longer inhibited by (-)-baclofen, whereas the intrinsic activity of CGP35348 and CGP52432 was not decreased. Activation of unknown sites on glycinergic terminals is likely to be involved. These unexpected effects should not be ignored when interpreting results obtained with the above GABA(B) receptor antagonists.

The nature of the coupling mechanism of presynaptic calcium channels involved in the release of neurotransmitters in the mammalian central nervous system is unknown. Using intracellular recordings from CA1 neurons in the rat hippocampal slice preparation, we show that the N-type calcium channels antagonist omega-conotoxin GVIA (omega-CgTx) blocks partially the excitatory (EPSP) and totally the inhibitory (IPSP) synaptic transmission in CA1 hippocampal pyramidal neurons. In addition, the inhibitory effect of omega-CgTx on IPSPs is strongly depressed by intrahippocampal injection of PTX, while the effect on EPSP is not. The results suggest that the nature or the regulation of calcium channels might be different, depending on the location of these channels on excitatory or inhibitory terminals.

There is compelling evidence that excessive GABA-mediated inhibition may underlie the abnormal electrical activity, initiated in the thalamus, associated with epileptic absence seizures. In particular, the GABAB receptor subtype seems to play a critical role, because its antagonists are potent inhibitors of absence seizures, whereas its agonists exacerbate seizure activity. Using a validated rat model of absence epilepsy, we have previously found no evidence of abnormal GABAB receptor density or affinity in thalamic tissue. In the present study, we have used in vivo microdialysis to monitor changes in levels of extracellular GABA and other amino acids in this brain region. We have shown that basal extracellular levels of GABA and, to a lesser extent, taurine are increased when compared with values in nonepileptic controls. However, modifying GABAergic transmission with the GABAB agonist (-)-baclofen (2 mg/kg i.p.), the GABAB antagonist CGP-35348 (200 mg/kg i.p.), or the GABA uptake inhibitor tiagabine (100 microM) did not produce any further alteration in extracellular GABA levels, despite the ability of these compounds to increase (baclofen and tiagabine) or decrease (CGP-35348) seizure activity. These findings suggest that the increased basal GABA levels observed in this animal model are not simply a consequence of seizure activity but may contribute to the initiation of absence seizures.

A previous study from our laboratory showed that baclofen (BAC, GABAB receptor agonist) was able to prevent the behavioral expression of nicotine (NIC) withdrawal syndrome. To further investigate the mechanisms underlying this effect, we conducted this study, with the aims of analyzing α4β2 nicotinic receptor density during NIC withdrawal and, in case we found any changes, of determining whether they could be prevented by pretreatment with BAC. Swiss Webster albino mice received NIC (2.5 mg/kg, s.c.) 4 times daily, for 7 days. On the 8th day, NIC-treated mice received the nicotinic antagonist mecamylamine (MEC; 2 mg/kg, i.p.) 1 h after the last dose of NIC. A second group of NIC-treated mice received BAC (2 mg/kg, i.p.) prior to MEC administration. Thirty minutes after MEC, mice were sacrificed and brain autoradiography with [(3)H]epibatidine was carried out at five different anatomical levels. Autoradiographic mapping showed a significant increase of α4β2 nicotinic receptor labeling during NIC withdrawal in the nucleus accumbens shell (AcbSh), medial habenular nucleus (HbM), thalamic nuclei, dorsal lateral geniculate (DLG) nucleus, fasciculus retroflexus (fr), ventral tegmental area, interpeduncular nucleus and superior colliculus. BAC pretreatment prevented the increased α4β2 nicotinic receptor binding sites in the AcbSh, MHb, thalamic nuclei, DLG nucleus and fr. The present results suggest a relationship between BAC's preventive effect of the expression of NIC withdrawal signs, and its ability to restore the changes in α4β2 nicotinic receptor labeling, evidenced in specific brain areas in NIC withdrawn animals.

Oral and intrathecal baclofen (ITB) have been associated with epileptic seizures. The authors observed a higher incidence of epileptic seizures in 99 patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) treated with ITB vs a matched control group (7% vs 1%, p < 0.05). Three patients with MS on ITB developed status epilepticus. Seizures were often associated with additional triggering factors.

Basar's view that the larger the number of synchronized and coupled participating neural generators, i.e., the lower the entropy of the neural systems, the lower the responsiveness of the system, and vice versa, was reconsidered experimentally and theoretically, in the light of current knowledge about the relationship between EEG states and evoked potentials. It was found that the morphology as well as the magnitude of the somatosensory evoked potentials was the same during synchronized (low entropy) and desynchronized (high entropy) EEG states in normal human subjects. Baclofen caused an increase in the somatosensory evoked potentials without affecting the EEG in unanaesthetized dogs. In the less complicated and more limited systems such as the skeletal muscle and monosynaptic reflex paradigms, an inverse relationship was established between the entropy state and responsiveness. This relationship can be simply explained by the neurophysiological facts such as Na-inactivation process at the excitable membranes and the refractory states of the neural generators. These results are consistent with those from the literature; the evoked potentials are usually large when recorded during synchronized EEG states and vice versa. It is suggested that, at least, the well established neurophysiological facts should not be ignored in physical approaches to neural mechanisms, especially when it concerns highly complex systems such as the brain.

Trace amines (TAs) are present in the central nervous system in which they up-regulate catecholamine release and are implicated in the pathogenesis of addiction, attention-deficit/hyper-activity disorder, Parkinson's disease, and schizophrenia. By using intracellular and patch-clamp recordings from dopaminergic cells in the rat midbrain slices, we report a depressant postsynaptic action of two TAs, beta-phenylethylamine (beta-PEA) and tyramine (TYR) on the GABA(B)-mediated slow inhibitory postsynaptic potential and baclofen-activated outward currents. beta-PEA and TYR activated G-proteins, interfering with the coupling between GABA(B) receptors and G-betagamma-gated inwardly rectifying potassium channels. This is the first demonstration that beta-PEA and TYR depress inhibitory synaptic potentials in neurons of the central nervous system, supporting their emerging role as neuromodulators.

The pharmacodynamics of baclofen on the bladder and urethral sphincters in acute and chronic spinal cord injury male patients were evaluated. A total of 100 supine and sitting urodynamic profiles was done in 25 patients. Baclofen decreased external urethral sphincter resistance by depressing pudendal-to-pudendal nerve reflex through spinal cord presynaptic hyperpolarization. This new centrally acting antispastic drug produced a significant reduction of residual urine in 73 per cent of the cases within an average of 4.98 weeks. Baclofen is a new alternative in the medical treatment of postural non-electrically induced detrusor striated sphincter dyssynergia in spinal cord injury patients. Indications for external sphincterotomy are discussed.

In this research data of 161 children were analyzed with spastic tetraparesis (GMFCS V). Evaluation was based on an analysis of the quantity of additional surgical procedures before and after ITB implantation. Subjective assessment was made using questionnaires addressed to parents on fundamental aspects of everyday activities and quality of life after implantation of ITB. RESULTS. The average age AT the time of surgery was 12 year and 2 months (SD 4.7). The average follow up was 3 years and 2 months (SD 2.4). During ITB implantation additional surgical procedure were performed in 43% of Children. During the next scheduled ITB pump exchange indication to addictional surgical procedure was reduced to 20%. The average questionnaire score was 13 points (0-16 max.). Fifty eight percents of caregivers of children who had any kind of device related complication scored with average score 13.5.

The prevalence of tetanus reflects a failure of immunization. Prompt diagnosis and prediction of severity are crucial for the prevention of early life threatening complications and the institution of appropriate management. The current symptomatic treatment of heavy sedation, paralysis and artificial ventilation for 3-5 weeks for moderate and severe tetanus, is, even in the best centers, still associated with unacceptably high mortality, due to the disease and complications of the therapy itself. It is especially inappropriate for the developing world where intensive care resources are minimal. New options reported to avoid artificial ventilation and sedation are dantrolene (Dantrium, Procter and Gamble Pharmaceuticals), baclofen (Lioresal, Novartis) and magnesium. Magnesium therapy has the advantages of controlling spasms and sympathetic over activity without sedation. This simplifies nursing care and minimizes the need for ventilatory support except in the very severe disease and the elderly. Magnesium is recommended as the first-line therapy in tetanus.

After discovering that binding to GABAB receptors in rat neocortex varied as a function of the estrous cycle of the rat, we asked whether either or both of the major ovarian steroids could affect binding to GABAB receptors in the same way, namely, by regulating the apparent density (Bmax) of GABAB receptors. We report here that in ovariectomized rats, subcutaneous injection of progesterone alone, without the necessity of estrogen priming, increased the Bmax of baclofen binding to GABAB receptors in the neocortex. Radioimmunoassay of plasma progesterone before and after progesterone injections revealed that plasma progesterone levels similar to those reached during the progesterone surge in proestrus were associated with increased baclofen binding. The effect of progesterone upon baclofen binding was evident 4 h but not 1 h following progesterone treatment. There was some specificity with respect to the cortical receptors affected by progesterone in that under our conditions, progesterone did not increase agonist binding to 5-HT1A or GABAA receptors. We interpret our results to indicate that progesterone variation during the estrous cycle could be responsible for a component of the regulation of GABAB receptors that occurs in neocortex during the estrous cycle of the rat.

Effects of baclofen and gamma-aminobutyric acid on medullary respiratory neurons were investigated. Medullary inspiratory neurons of the dorsal and ventral respiratory groups were stimulated by baclofen, 0.5-2 mg/kg, and depressed by doses greater than 4-6 mg/kg. Expiratory neurons were depressed by doses of baclofen which increased phrenic nerve activity. Microelectrophoresis of baclofen (5 mM, pH 3) depressed medullary inspiratory neurons. It is suggested that low i.v. doses of baclofen increase inspiratory activity by disinhibition of medullary neurons whereas higher doses directly depress medullary inspiratory neurons.

Using whole cell patch-clamp recordings, we investigated the effects of the GABA(B) receptor agonist baclofen in thin slices of rat brain stem containing identified gastric- or intestinal-projecting dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus (DMV) neurons. Perfusion with baclofen (0.1-100 microM) induced a concentration-dependent outward current (EC(50), 3 microM) in 54% of DMV neurons with no apparent differences between gastric- and intestinal-projecting neurons. The outward current was attenuated by pretreatment with the selective GABA(B) antagonists saclofen and 2-hydroxysaclofen, but not by the synaptic blocker TTX, indicating a direct effect at GABA(B) receptors on DMV neurons. Using the selective ion channel blockers barium, nifedipine, and apamin, we showed that the outward current was due to effects on potassium and calcium currents as well as calcium-dependent potassium currents. The calcium-mediated components of the outward current were more prominent in intestinal-projecting neurons than in gastric-projecting neurons. These data indicate that although baclofen inhibits both intestinal- and gastric-projecting neurons in the rat DMV, its mechanism of action differs among the neuronal subpopulations.

Dystonia in complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) responds poorly to treatment. Intrathecal baclofen (ITB) may improve this type of dystonia, but information on its efficacy and safety is limited. A single-blind, placebo-run-in, dose-escalation study was carried out in 42 CRPS patients to evaluate whether dystonia responds to ITB. Thirty-six of the 38 patients, who met the responder criteria received a pump for continuous ITB administration, and were followed up for 12 months to assess long-term efficacy and safety (open-label study). Primary outcome measures were global dystonia severity (both studies) and dystonia-related functional limitations (open-label study). The dose-escalation study showed a dose-effect of baclofen on dystonia severity in 31 patients in doses up to 450 microg/day. One patient did not respond to treatment in the dose-escalation study and three patients dropped out. Thirty-six patients entered the open-label study. Intention-to-treat analysis revealed a substantial improvement in patient and assessor-rated dystonia scores, pain, disability and quality-of-life (Qol) at 12 months. The response in the dose-escalation study did not predict the response to ITB in the open-label study. Eighty-nine adverse events occurred in 26 patients and were related to baclofen (n=19), pump/catheter system defects (n=52), or could not be specified (n=18). The pump was explanted in six patients during the follow-up phase. Dystonia, pain, disability and Qol all improved on ITB and remained efficacious over a period of one year. However, ITB is associated with a high complication rate in this patient group, and methods to improve patient selection and catheter-pump integrity are warranted.

In humans, exposure to contexts previously associated with heroin use can provoke relapse. In rats, exposure to heroin-paired contexts after extinction of drug-reinforced responding in different contexts reinstates heroin seeking. This effect is attenuated by inhibition of glutamate or dopamine transmission in nucleus accumbens shell, or inactivation of ventral medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC). Here, we used an anatomical asymmetrical disconnection procedure to demonstrate that an interaction between glutamatergic projections from ventral mPFC to accumbens shell and local dopamine D(1) postsynaptic receptors contributes to context-induced reinstatement of heroin seeking. We also combined the marker of neuronal activity, Fos, with the retrograde tracer Fluoro-Gold to assess activation in this pathway during context-induced reinstatement. Rats were trained to self-administer heroin for 12 d; drug infusions were paired with a discrete tone-light cue. Lever pressing was subsequently extinguished in a nondrug-associated context in the presence of the discrete cue. Rats were then tested in the heroin- or extinction-associated contexts under extinction conditions. Injections of muscimol + baclofen into ventral mPFC in one hemisphere and D(1)-family receptor antagonist SCH 23390 into the contralateral or ipsilateral accumbens shell decreased context-induced reinstatement. Unilateral injections of muscimol + baclofen into ventral mPFC or SCH 23390 into the accumbens shell had no effect. Context-induced reinstatement was associated with increased Fos expression in ventral mPFC neurons, including those projecting to accumbens shell, with higher double-labeling in the ipsilateral projection than in the contralateral projection. Our results demonstrate that activation of glutamatergic projections from ventral mPFC to accumbens shell, previously implicated in inhibition of cocaine relapse, promotes heroin relapse.

Patients that do not respond satisfactorily to standard proton pump inhibitor (PPI) treatment have become the most common presentation of gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) in third referral gastrointestinal practices. The causes of refractory GERD include lack of compliance with treatment, residual acid reflux and weakly acidic reflux, esophageal hypersensitivity and persistent symptoms not associated with reflux. A role for weakly acidic reflux in symptom generation has been proposed since the availability of impedance-pH monitoring. The possible mechanisms by which persistent weakly acidic reflux might contribute to persistent symptoms in patients under PPI treatment may include esophageal distension by increased reflux volume, persistent impaired mucosal integrity (ie, dilation of intercellular spaces) and/or esophageal hypersensitivity to weakly acidic reflux events. To establish a definite role of weakly acidic reflux in refractory GERD, outcome studies targeting this type of reflux are still lacking. Treatment strategies to reduce the number or effect of weakly acidic reflux could involve drugs that decrease transient lower esophageal sphincter relaxations (ie, baclofen or similar), improve oesophageal mucosa resistance or visceral pain modulators. Finally, anti-reflux surgery can be considered, only if a clear symptom-weakly acidic reflux association was demonstrated.

In the 1980s, Bowery and colleagues discovered the presence of a novel, bicuculline-resistant and baclofen-sensitive type of GABA receptor on peripheral nerve terminals, the GABA(B) receptor. Since this pioneering work, GABA(B) receptors have been identified in the Central Nervous System (CNS), where they provide an important inhibitory control of postsynaptic excitability and presynaptic transmitter release. GABA(B) receptors have been implicated in a number of important processes in the adult brain such as the regulation of synaptic plasticity and modulation of rhythmic activity. As a result of these studies, several potential therapeutic applications of GABA(B) receptor ligands have been identified. Recent advances have further shown that GABA(B) receptors play more than a classical inhibitory role in adult neurotransmission, and can in fact function as an important developmental signal early in life. Here we summarize current knowledge on the contribution of GABA(B) receptors to the construction and function of developing neuronal networks.

Treatment of myoclonus requires an understanding of the physiopathology of the condition. The first step in treatment is to determine if there is an epileptic component to the myoclonus and treat accordingly. Secondly, a review of medications (e.g., opiates) and comorbidities (e.g., hepatic or renal failure) is required to establish the possibility of iatrogenic and reversible conditions. Once those are eliminated, delineation between cortical, cortico-subcortical, subcortical, brainstem, and spinal generators can determine the first-line treatment. Cortical myoclonus can be treated with levetiracetam, valproic acid, and clonazepam as first-line agents. Phenytoin and carbamazepine may paradoxically worsen myoclonus. Subcortical and brainstem myoclonus can be treated with clonazepam as a first-line agent, but levetiracetam and valproic acid can be tried as well. L-5-Hydroxytryptophan and sodium oxybate are agents used for refractory cases. Spinal myoclonus does not respond to anti-epileptic drugs, and clonazepam is a first-line agent. Botulinum toxin treatment can be useful for focal cases of spinal myoclonus. The etiology of propriospinal myoclonus is controversial, and a functional etiology is suspected in most cases. Treatment can include clonazepam, levetiracetam, baclofen, valproate, carbamazepine, and buy lioresal zonisamide. Functional myoclonus requires multimodal and multidisciplinary treatment that may include psychotropic drugs and physical and occupational therapy. Close collaboration between neurologists and psychiatrists is required for effective treatment. Finally, deep brain stimulation targeting the globus pallidus pars-interna bilaterally has been used in myoclonus-dystonia when pharmacological treatments have been exhausted.

γ-Aminobutyric acid B (GABAB) receptor activation is a potential therapeutic approach for the treatment of drug addiction, pain, anxiety, and depression. However, full agonists of this receptor induce side-effects, such as sedation, muscle relaxation, tolerance, and cognitive disruption. Positive buy lioresal allosteric modulators (PAMs) of the GABAB receptor may have similar therapeutic effects as agonists with superior side-effect profiles. The present study behaviorally characterized N-([1R,2R,4S]-bicyclo[2.2.1]hept-2-yl)-2-methyl-5-(4-[trifluoromethyl]phenyl)-4-pyrimidinamine (BHF177), a GABAB receptor PAM, in mouse models of anxiety-like behavior, learning and memory. In addition, the effects of BHF177 were compared with the agonist baclofen. Unlike the anxiolytic chlordiazepoxide, baclofen (0.5, 1.5, and 2.5 mg/kg, intraperitoneally) and BHF177 (10, 20, and 40 mg/kg, orally) had no effect on anxiety-like behavior in the elevated plus maze, light/dark box, or Vogel conflict test. Baclofen increased punished drinking in the Vogel conflict test, but this effect may be attributable to the analgesic actions of baclofen. At the highest dose tested (2.5 mg/kg), baclofen-treated mice exhibited sedation-like effects (i.e., reduced locomotor activity) across many of the tests, whereas BHF177-treated mice exhibited no sedation-like effects. BHF177 exhibited pro-convulsion properties only in mice, but not in rats, indicating that this effect may be species-specific. At doses that were not sedative or pro-convulsant, baclofen and BHF177 had no selective effects on fear memory retrieval in contextual and cued fear conditioning or spatial learning and memory in the Barnes maze. These data suggest that BHF177 has little sedative activity, no anxiolytic-like profile, and minimal impairment of learning and memory in mice.

Responses of acutely isolated neurons from the rostral nucleus of the solitary tract (rNST) to GABA receptor agonists and antagonists were investigated using whole-cell recording in current clamp mode. The isolated neurons retain their morphology and can be divided into multipolar buy lioresal , elongate and ovoid cell types. Most rNST neurons (97%), including all three cell types, respond to GABA with membrane hyperpolarization and a reduction in input resistance. The GABA(A) receptor agonist muscimol reduces neuronal input resistance in a concentration-dependent manner, whereas the GABA(B) receptor agonist baclofen had no effect on any of the neurons tested. The GABA and muscimol reversal potentials were both found to be -75 mV Both the GABA competitive antagonist picrotoxin and the GABA(A) receptor antagonist bicuculline block the effect of GABA in a concentration-dependent manner. These results suggest that GABA activates all neurons in the rNST and that inhibitory synaptic activity is important in brainstem processing of gustatory and somatosensory information.

Effects buy lioresal of the GABA(B) receptor agonist ((+/-)-baclofen), antagonist (phaclofen), and their combination were tested against clonic seizures induced by cocaine (75 mg/kg). Enantiomers of baclofen were used to confirm stereospecificity of (+/-)-baclofen's effects. Pharmacological specificity of (+/-)-baclofen's effects was tested by comparison against seizures induced by GBR 12909 (monoamine transporter inhibitor), pentylenetetrazole (GABA(A) antagonist), N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA agonist), and aminophylline (A1/A2 adenosine antagonist). Additionally, effects of (+/-)-baclofen on kindled seizures induced by repeated administration of cocaine (60 mg/kg every 24 h for 6 days) were evaluated. The inverted screen test was used to assess behavioral side effects of baclofen.

A foreign-body reaction after intrathecal baclofen pump implantation is a rare complication, which has not been reported previously, and which is associated with negative skin patch tests. In cases with no signs of infection, skin intolerance must be suspected and buy lioresal dermatological assessments should be carried out. Replacement with a pump wrapped in an inert coating is an effective and available solution.

1. The superficial grey layer of the superior colliculus (SGS) contains a high proportion of GABAergic inhibitory neurones. We have investigated the role of GABA receptors in synaptic transmission of aspects of visual activity in the SGS that may be driven by inhibitory mechanisms, such as surround inhibition and response habituation. 2. Multi-barrel glass iontophoretic pipettes were used to record single neuronal activity in the SGS of urethane-anaesthetized rats. Visual stimulation was provided by the display of moving bars and stationary spots of light on a monitor placed in the receptive field. 3. Both ejection of GABA and the GABAB agonist baclofen reduced responses to moving bars (interstimulus intervals > or = 8 s). The effects of GABA were reversed by the GABAA antagonist bicuculline, and the effects of baclofen were antagonized by the GABAB antagonist CGP 35,348. 4. Surround inhibition was estimated by plotting the response to flashed spots of increasing diameter. In controls, expanding the spot diameter beyond the excitatory receptive field caused a decrease in the response. This inhibitory surround was reversibly reduced by bicuculline, but CGP 35,348 had no effect. 5. Response habituation is the progressive reduction in the visual response during repetitive stimulus presentation. In controls, the visual response was reduced to 44 +/- 3% of its initial level when a stimulus (moving bar) was presented 5 times with an interstimulus interval of 0.5 s. During CGP 35,348 ejection, response habituation was reversibly reduced. Bicuculline had no effect on response habituation. 6. The effects of bicuculline on surround inhibition in the superior colliculus are consistent with similar studies in the lateral geniculate nucleus which indicate that GABAA receptors mediate this effect. The function of GABAB receptors buy lioresal in the visual system is less well researched. The reduction of response habituation with CGP 35,348 demonstrates that, at least in the SGS, GABAB receptors have an important role in visual transmission which is distinct from that of GABAA receptors.

Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS, chronic high frequency stimulation) is well established for Parkinson's disease and tremordominant movement disorders. Generalized dystonia is known as a type of movement disorder in which therapeutic options are very limited. A case of generalized dystonia is reported which was successfully treated by DBS in the Globus pallidus internus (GPI). A 26 years old male suffered from severe torsion dystonia of the lower limbs. The onset of symptoms was at age 7. It started with dystonia of the left foot. He very fast developed severe dystonia of the lower limbs. These complaints were initially treated by diazepam, later by baclofen (Lioresal ((R))) p.o em leader There was no L-DOPA response. Because of the rapid progression of the disease a cervical spinal cord stimulator was implanted with a transient success. Due to further progression of the disease the patient became wheelchair bounded and resistant for oral medication. Limited improvement of symptoms was achieved using continuous intrathecal administration of baclofen. Finally the patient was treated with 980 microgram intrathecal Baclofen (Lioresal ((R))) daily and up to 100 mg diazepam. Under these conditions the patient remained wheelchair bounded with severe lower limb dystonia. As an ultima ratio it was decided to treat the patient with stereotactic implantation of two electrodes (Medtronic 3387) and two neurostimulators (Medtronic ITREL ((R))II). The GPI was the bilateral target point. Intraoperative computerized tomography and ventriculography were used for target setting. Furthermore microrecordings were helpful to ensure the exact electrode positioning. Surgery was performed under sedation. Two weeks after surgery first improvement of symptoms was observed. Patient was able to stand with assistance. At the three months follow-up he could walk without assistance. Slight dystonic movement of the left ankle buy lioresal was the only remaining symptom under stimulation. The oral medication has been continuously reduced. After 6 months it was stopped. The intrathecal administered baclofen was diminished to 250 microgram daily. At the 24 months follow-up the effect of stimulation remained unchanged. However high stimulation parameters are required to maintain an optimal effect (3,5 V, 400 microseconds 145 Hz for both sides). Deep Brain Stimulation of the Globus Pallidus internus is an alternative approach for severe cases of generalized dystonia.

In well-trained animals, infusion of the GABA-B agonist baclofen into the cerebellar interpositus nucleus and overlying cortex abolished the conditioned response (CR) with no effect on the unconditioned response (UR) with doses at or above 5.0 mM. Infusion of the GABA-B antagonist CGP 5584-5A alone had no effect on the CR or UR. However, administration of 5 mM baclofen soon after infusion of CGP 5584-5A (15 min) resulted in no reduction of percent CR and only partial reduction of CR amplitude. Naive animals given interpositus infusions of baclofen during training showed no learning, yet learned normally in postinfusion training. The distribution of (radiolabelled) baclofen buy lioresal was localized and remained within the cerebellum. The results presented here are consistent with a growing body of literature supporting the hypothesis that the memory trace for eyeblink conditioning is formed and stored in the cerebellum and may involve GABAergic mechanisms.

Exposure to cocaine induces selective behavioral and molecular adaptations. In rodents, acute cocaine induces increased locomotor activity, whereas prolonged drug exposure results in behavioral locomotor sensitization, which is thought to be a consequence of drug-induced neuroadaptive changes. Recent attention has been given to compounds activating GABA(B) receptors as potential antiaddictive therapies. In particular, the principle of allosteric positive GABA(B) receptor modulators is very promising in this respect, as positive modulators lack the sedative and muscle relaxant properties of full GABA(B) receptor agonists such as baclofen. Here, we investigated the effects of systemic application of the GABA(B) receptor-positive modulator GS39783 (N,N'-dicyclopentyl-2-methylsulfanyl-5-nitro-pyrimidine-4, 6-diamine) in animals treated with acute and chronic cocaine administration. Both GS39783 and baclofen dose dependently attenuated acute cocaine-induced hyperlocomotion. Furthermore, both compounds also buy lioresal efficiently blocked cocaine-induced Fos induction in the striatal complex. In chronic studies, GS39783 induced a modest attenuation of cocaine-induced locomotor sensitization. Chronic cocaine induces the accumulation of the transcription factor deltaFosB and upregulates cAMP-response-element-binding protein (CREB) and dopamine- and cAMP-regulated phosphoprotein of 32 kDa (DARPP-32). GS39783 blocked the induction/activation of DARPP-32 and CREB in the nucleus accumbens and dorsal striatum and partially inhibited deltaFosB accumulation in the dorsal striatum. In summary, our data provide evidence that GS39783 attenuates the acute behavioral effects of cocaine exposure in rodents and in addition prevents the induction of selective long-term adaptive changes in dopaminergic signaling pathways. Further investigation of GABA(B) receptor-positive modulation as a novel therapeutic strategy for the treatment of cocaine dependence and possibly other drugs of abuse is therefore warranted.

The role of GABAB receptors in control of central respiratory system was evaluated by cycle-triggered averaging of phrenic nerve activity (PNA) of the rabbit. Blockade of GABAB receptors of the caudal brainstem by intracerebroventricular administration of phaclofen augmented PNA, decreased the duration of inspiration and buy lioresal to about the same extent increased the duration of expiration thus unmasking intrinsically active GABA. Analogously, stimulation of brainstem GABAB receptors by exogenous baclofen decreased PNA. Preceding administration of larger doses of phaclofen could block the effects of baclofen. It is proposed that GABAB receptors are involved in tonic and phasic modulation of central respiratory activity.

Intrathecal administration of baclofen is now generally accepted as a powerful treatment of spasticity caused by spinal lesions. 35 patients with severe spasticity, 29 of spinal origin and six of supraspinal origin resistant to conservative treatment, had a programmable pump (Synchromed, Medtronic) for continuous intrathecal baclofen infusion implanted. The patients were followed-up for an average of 29 months (0-68). The initial effect of the treatment was positive for all patients; spasms were less frequent, there was remission of pain caused by cramps, and in some cases improved ambulation. In five patients, however, the pump was later buy lioresal removed: in two patients the pump ceased to be effective, two patients became infected, and one experienced multiple catheter problems. Problems with the catheter was the most common complication experienced, and this was seen in nine patients. Three patients died of the underlying disease. The majority of patients became accommodated to intrathecal baclofen and it was necessary to administer increasingly larger doses to maintain the clinical effect. Long-term control of spinal spasticity by intrathecal baclofen can be achieved in most patients, but close follow-up is necessary for assessing efficacy and refilling the pump.

The intrathecal injection of substance P (SP) (2.5-15 micrograms) has been shown to produce hyperalgesia in the rat tail flick test. Repeated injection of SP (7.5 or 15 micrograms) or pretreatment with two of these doses produces desensitization to this hyperalgesic response. Desensitization is dose-related with respect to degree and duration. This phenomenon is relatively specific because the hyperalgesic response to methysergide, a serotonin receptor antagonist, is unaffected, while that produced by phentolamine, an adrenergic receptor antagonist, is much less affected than that of SP. Pretreatment with a desensitizing regimen of SP potentiates the antinociceptive effect of morphine and baclofen when they are tested immediately after the regimen but if a 30 min delay is permitted, an inhibition of Zovirax Generic Name their effects is observed. These results support the notion that the spinal antinociceptive effect of morphine and baclofen is due to an interaction with SP mechanisms in the spinal cord, the nature of which may be more complex than is presently understood. Desensitization produces no change in baseline responsiveness in the tail flick test. This suggests that the hyperalgesic response to SP is due either to an action at a site other than the primary afferent synapse, or if it is at this site either compensatory mechanisms occur or SP is not the primary determinant of tail flick latency but may play a modulatory role.

Impairment in spinal inhibition caused by quantitative alteration of GABAergic elements following peripheral nerve injury has been postulated to mediate neuropathic pain. In the present study, we tested whether neuropathic pain could be induced or reversed by pharmacologically modulating spinal GABAergic activity, and whether quantitative alteration of spinal GABAergic elements after peripheral nerve injury was related to the impairment of GABAergic inhibition or neuropathic pain. To these aims, we first analyzed the pain behaviors following the spinal administration of GABA antagonists (1 microg bicuculline/rat and 5 microg phaclofen/rat), agonists (1 microg muscimol/rat and 0.5 microg baclofen/rat) or GABA transporter (GAT) inhibitors (20 microg NNC-711/rat and 1 microg SNAP-5114/rat) into naïve or neuropathic animals. Then, using Western blotting, PCR or immunohistochemistry, we compared the quantities of spinal GABA, its synthesizing enzymes (GAD65, 67) and its receptors (GABA(A) and GABA(B)) and transporters (GAT-1, and -3) between two groups of rats with different severity of neuropathic pain following partial injury of tail-innervating nerves; the allodynic and non-allodynic groups. Intrathecal administration of GABA antagonists markedly lowered tail-withdrawal threshold in naïve animals, and GABA agonists or GAT inhibitors significantly attenuated neuropathic pain in nerve-injured animals. Purchase Viagra However, any quantitative changes in spinal GABAergic elements were not observed in both the allodynic and non-allodynic groups. These results suggest that although the impairment in spinal GABAergic inhibition may play a role in mediation of neuropathic pain, it is not accomplished by the quantitative change in spinal elements for GABAergic inhibition and therefore these elements are not related to the generation of neuropathic pain following peripheral nerve injury.

The effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and GABAergic drugs were studied on longitudinal strips from cat terminal ileum prepared after removing the myenteric plexus. GABA and baclofen exerted concentration-dependent contractile effects. Muscimol was ineffective, and bicuculline did not antagonize the effect of GABA. The complete elimination of the neural input to the smooth muscle cells by tetrodotoxin failed to prevent Augmentin 975 Mg the action of GABA and baclofen. Pharmacological analyses of the effects indicated the existence of GABAB receptors on the smooth muscle cells in the longitudinal layer of cat terminal ileum.
