We previously reported the absence of high-affinity binding of the group II metabotropic glutamate receptor agonists LY 354,740 and LY 379,268 to the D2L dopamine receptor. A rebuttal to our findings has since been reported (see Introduction section); this study represents our response. Analysis by LCMS of LY 354,740 and LY 379,268 used in this study revealed the correct molecular mass for these compounds. Both LY 354,740 and LY 379,268 exhibited potent agonist activity for mGluR₂ in the ³⁵S-GTPγS assay. Functionally, neither compound displayed antagonist activity in the GTPγS assay with recombinant D₂. At concentrations up to 10 μM, both compounds failed to displace [³H]-raclopride, [³H]-PHNO, or [³H]-domperidone in filter-binding assays under isotonic (120 mM NaCl or N-methyl glucamine) or low-ionic strength (no NaCl or N-methyl glucamine) conditions. Some displacement of [³H]-domperidone (20-40%) was observed at 30 μM of LY 354,740 under low-ionic strength and under isotonic conditions in the absence of NaCl. No displacement of [³H]-domperidone was detected in a two site model at lower (<100 nM) concentrations of either compound. Moreover, no D₂ activity was observed for LY 354,740 or LY 379,268 in the CellKey™ (cellular dielectric spectroscopy) assay. In this communication, we discuss the possible reasons for differences in our study and the previously published work and implications of these studies for mechanisms of antipsychotic action.

Cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) is a zoonosis and a public health problem in countries of subtropical America. The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy of furazolidone and domperidone treatment of dogs naturally infected with Leishmania (Viannia) braziliensis. Infection was confirmed by PCR and parasite culture of tissue collected from skin scrapings of the lesion borders of dogs. Naturally infected animals were divided into control (n=4) and treatment (n=8) groups. The treatment group was administered furazolidone for 21 days interspersed with domperidone for 10 days by oral gavage. Dogs that showed no lesion healing during this period were administered the same treatment cycle for up to 93 days. Among the eight treated animals, seven were clinically cured without recurrence of skin lesions during the 12-month study period. However, during lesion healing, skin scrapings were positive for L. (V.) braziliensis by PCR; no growth of the protozoan in NNN-LIT medium occurred until the end of follow-up. These results suggest that treatment with furazolidone and domperidone is effective for epithelialisation and lesion healing of dogs with clinical CL caused by L. (V.) braziliensis.

GER episodes per hour increased significantly compared to the baseline in the domperidone group (4.06+/-1.16 vs 2.8+/-1.42; P=0.001) and were shorter (16.68+/-4.49 vs 20.18+/-7.83 s; P=0.043), whereas there were no differences in the maximum proximal extent reached by the refluxes (3.37+/-0.45 vs 3.34+/-0.94 channels; P=0.894) and their pH (4.72+/-0.69 vs 4.60+/-1.17; P=0.634).
Addition of 5-HT or SK&F 103829 (2,3,4,5 tetrahydro-8[methyl-sulfonyl]-1 H-3-benzazepin-7-ol hydrobromide) contracts isolated strips of canine lower esophageal sphincter (LES) circular smooth muscle. 5-HT acts directly on the smooth muscle, since pretreatment with the neurotoxin TTX does not inhibit this contraction. Depletion of extracellular calcium or pretreatment with nifedipine inhibited the contraction to both 5-HT and SK&F 103829. Therefore, in this smooth muscle, the contraction produced by both 5-HT and SK&F 103829 requires extracellular calcium and is sensitive to inhibition by a voltage-dependent Ca2+ channel antagonist. In addition, with respect to 5-HT, SK&F 103829 appeared to act as a partial agonist. Receptor alkylation studies using phenoxybenzamine demonstrated no receptor reserve for the contractile response to 5-HT. Nonsurmountable antagonism of the contraction induced by 5-HT and SK&F 103289 was observed with several 5-HT2 antagonists, i.e., methysergide, ketanserin, cyproheptadine, and LY 53857. Using a method established for pseudoirreversible antagonism, the Ki values for these 5-HT2 receptor antagonists were estimated. Results suggested that both 5-HT and SK&F 103829 contract the canine LES by interacting at the same receptor site and that this receptor site has characteristics of the 5-HT2 receptor. Finally, neither bulbocapnine, domperidone, nor prazosin significantly alters the response to 5-HT or SK&F 103829. Thus, isolated strips of canine LES contain a contractile 5-HT2 receptor, and SK&F 103829 behaves as a partial agonist at this site.

The effects of the psychostimulant (+)cathine (norpseudoephedrine) were examined in a two-choice, food-motivated, drug-discrimination paradigm. Rats were able to discriminate cathine from vehicle and this effect was dose- and time-dependent. Prior administration of cathine resulted in a diminished response (tolerance) to subsequent cathine and this effect developed and dissipated rapidly. Thus, different dose-response curves were generated depending upon whether cathine or vehicle was administered the day before testing. The development of tolerance also shortened cathine's time course of action and enhanced the ability of haloperidol to antagonize the cathine cue. These results suggest caution in interpreting effects produced by intermittent drug injection schedules.

The binding of [3H]domperidone and [3H]spiroperidol was examined in membranes prepared from rat striatum. Scatchard analysis of the binding of [3H]domperidone resulted in curvilinear plots consistent with the presence of multiple classes of binding sites. Nonlinear regression analysis of untransformed data showed that the curvature was best explained by the presence of two populations of binding sites. Scatchard plots of the binding of [3H]spiroperidol were linear, suggesting that this radioligand binds to a single class of receptors. However, results obtained in studies of the inhibition of [3H]spiroperidol binding by a number of competing ligands were not consistent with the interaction of these agents with a single class of binding sites. Computer-assisted analysis of the Hofstee plots of six competing ligands gave the same relative proportion for two classes of sites as determined by analysis of the binding of [3H]domperidone. The two classes of receptors labeled with [3H]spiroperidol had affinities for domperidone that were similar to those of the two populations of binding sites for [3H]domperidone. Furthermore, the number of binding sites for [3H]spiroperidol was equal to the total number of binding sites for [3H]domperidone. These findings suggest that the two radioligands bind to the same two classes of binding sites. It is unlikely that either of the two classes of striatal sites are receptors for serotonin. The approach described will make it possible to assess the effects of physiological or pharmacological manipulations on the densities or properties of subtypes of dopamine receptors.

The aim of study was to prepare controlled release matrix mucoadhesive tablets of domperidone using Salvia plebeian gum as natural polymer. Tablets were formulated by direct compression technology employing the natural polymer in different concentrations (5, 10, 15 and 20% w/w). The prepared batches were evaluated for drug assay, diameter, thickness, hardness and tensile strength, swelling index, mucoadhesive strength (using texture analyzer) and subjected to in vitro drug release studies. Real-time stability studies were also conducted on prepared batches. In vitro drug release data were fitted in various release kinetic models for studying the mechanism of drug release. Tensile strength was found to increase from 0.808 ± 0.098 to 1.527 ± 0.10 mN/cm(2) and mucoadhesive strength increased from 13.673 ± 1.542 to 40.378 ± 2.345 N, with an increase in the polymer concentration from 5 to 20% (A1 to A4). Swelling index was reported to increase with both increase in the concentration of gum and the time duration. The in vitro drug release decreased from 97.76 to 83.4% (A1 to A4) with the increase in polymer concentration. The drug release from the matrix tablets was found to follow zero-order and Higuchi models, indicating the matrix-forming potential of natural polymer. The value of n was found to be between 0.5221 and 0.8992, indicating the involvement of more than one drug release mechanism from the formulation and possibly the combination of both diffusion and erosion. These research findings clearly indicate the potential of S. plebeian gum to be used as binder, release retardant and mucoadhesive natural material in tablet formulations.

Reproductive experience (i.e., pregnancy and lactation) induces physiological changes in mammals. We recently showed that a previous reproductive experience can modulate the activity of dopaminergic hypothalamic systems while decreasing serum prolactin (PRL) levels and oxidative burst activity in peritoneal macrophages. Dopamine receptor antagonists increase serum PRL levels, and both PRL and dopamine receptors might be involved in the modulation of macrophage activity, providing a means of communication between the nervous and immune systems. The present study evaluated the in vitro effects of PRL and the dopamine receptor D2 antagonist domperidone (DOMP) on the peritoneal activity of macrophages from primiparous and multiparous female rats during lactation. Oxidative bursts and phagocytosis in peritoneal macrophages were evaluated by flow cytometry. Primiparous and multiparous Wistar rats, during the period of lactation (i.e., days 5-7 after parturition) were used. Samples of peritoneal fluid from these rats were first incubated with PRL (10 and 100 nM) for different periods of time. The same procedure was repeated to evaluate the effects of DOMP (10 and 100 nM). Our results showed that macrophages from multiparous rats respond more effectively to in vitro incubation with PRL, especially with regard to oxidative bursts and the percentage of phagocytosis. Additionally, these effects were more pronounced after 30 min of incubation. These data suggest that reproductive experience is associated with a reduction in serum PRL levels, and cells in experienced female animals, including their macrophages, become more sensitive to the effects of PRL.

In a previous work, we showed that the adult cat demonstrates a ventilatory decline during sustained hypoxia (the "roll off" phenomenon) and that the mechanism responsible for this secondary decrease in ventilation lies within the central nervous system (J. Appl. Physiol. 63: 1658-1664, 1987). In this study, we sought to determine whether central dopaminergic mechanisms could have a role in the roll off. We studied the effects of haloperidol, a peripheral and centrally acting dopamine receptor antagonist, on the ventilatory response to sustained isocapnic hypoxia (end-tidal PO2 40-50 Torr, 20-25 min) in awake cats. In vehicle control cats (n = 5), sustained hypoxia elicited a biphasic respiratory response, during which an initial ventilatory stimulation is followed by a 24 +/- 6% (P less than 0.01) reduction. In contrast, in haloperidol- (0.1 mg/kg) treated cats (n = 5) the ventilatory roll off was virtually abolished (-1 +/- 1%; P = NS). We also measured ventilatory, carotid sinus nerve (CSN) and phrenic nerve (PhN) responses to sustained isocapnic hypoxia in anesthetized animals (n = 6) to explore the influence of haloperidol on peripheral and central response during the roll off. Control responses to hypoxia showed an initial increase in ventilation, PhN, and CSN activity, followed by a subsequent decline in ventilation and PhN activity of 17 +/- 3 and 17 +/- 5%, respectively (P less than 0.05). In contrast, CSN activity remained unchanged during the roll off. Administration of haloperidol (1 mg/kg) reduced the initial increment in ventilation, while the initial increase in CSN activity was augmented.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Gastroparesis is a disorder characterized by a delay in gastric emptying of a meal in the absence of a mechanical gastric outlet obstruction. Diagnosis of gastroparesis is based on the presence of symptoms ( nausea, vomiting, postprandial abdominal fullness), excluded mechanical obstruction (endoscopy) and on objectively determined delay in gastric emptying. Gastric emptying can be assessed by scintigraphy and stable isotope breath tests. The true prevalence of gastroparesis is unknown. The aetiology of gastroparesis is diverse. In approximately one third of cases, gastroparesis is related to the presence of diabetes mellitus; one third of case is of unknown cause (idiopathic). Mild disease will respond to dietary and life style measures and prokinetics (domperidone, metoclopramide, erytromicyne). Severe disease can benefit from intrapyloric botulinum toxin injection, gastric pacing or more radical surgical interventions (partial or total gastrectomy).
The study was conducted at an otolaryngology clinic in India between May 2012 and November 2012.

Pergolide, a dopamine agonist effective in the treatment of Parkinson's disease, has been shown to have anti-inflammatory activity in the carrageenan paw edema assay in rats at p.o. doses greater than or equal to 0.3 mg/kg. Studies were done to investigate the mechanism of action and to determine the pharmacologic significance of this finding. Because pergolide elevates circulating glucocorticoids, the effect of pergolide on carrageenan-induced paw swelling was assessed in adrenalectomized rats. Pergolide retained its anti-inflammatory activity in adrenalectomized carrageenan-injected rats, thus eliminating corticosterone induction as a possible mechanism of action. Pergolide treatment also did not decrease thromboxane B2, prostaglandin E2 or leukotriene B4 production, ruling out direct effects on arachnoid acid inflammatory mediators. Interactions with the autonomic nervous system were suggested, in that an alpha adrenergic agonist (clonidine) mimicked the activity of pergolide in the carrageenan assay, and an alpha adrenergic antagonist (phenoxybenzamine) blocked the anti-inflammatory activity of pergolide in this assay. Dopamine receptor antagonists (haloperidol or sulpiride) partially inhibited the effect of pergolide in the carrageenan model. However, the peripherally restricted dopamine antagonist, domperidone, was ineffective, suggesting that a central dopamine receptor was involved in the effect. Experiments in chronic inflammation models such as lipoidal-amine induced arthritis in rats and picryl chloride-induced delayed type hypersensitivity in mice also revealed an anti-inflammatory effect of pergolide. Activity in the carrageenan system and the lipoidalamine model demonstrated that the anti-inflammatory effects of pergolide were separable from potential immunosuppressive effects. Multiple dose studies indicated that tolerance might develop to the anti-inflammatory effect of pergolide.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

To study and document the efficacy and tolerability of rabeprazole and domperidone in the treatment of patients suffering from gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD), an open, prospective, non-comparative study was carried out among 50 adult patients of either sex attending gastroenterology OPD of a leading, tertiary-care teaching hospital in Mumbai with the clinical diagnosis of GERD. One capsule of rabeprazole and domperidone was swallowed in empty stomach each day for up to 4 weeks by the patients. Rabeprazole and domperidone provided significant and remarkable improvement in symptoms of GERD. Although, the improvement was observed at first follow-up visit (within 2 weeks), continuing treatment for 4 weeks provided additional gains. Almost all patients tolerated the drug well. Most patients (94%) had excellent or good relief as assessed by their physician whilst 86% of patients rated treatment with rabeprazole and domperidone as good or excellent. Rabeprazole and domperidone not only provided desired relief of symptoms of GERD but also is very well tolerated. This combination may also improve the quality of life of patients suffering from GERD.

Pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) is processed to adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) and beta-lipotropin in corticotropes of the anterior lobe, and to alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH) and beta-endorphin in melanotropes of the intermediate lobe (IL) of the pituitary gland. While ACTH secretion is predominantly under the stimulatory influence of the hypothalamic factors, hormone secretion of the IL is tonically inhibited by neuroendocrine dopamine (NEDA) neurons. Lobe-specific POMC processing is not absolute. For example, D(2) type DA receptor (D2R)-deficient mice have elevated plasma ACTH levels, although it is known that corticotropes do not express D2R(s). Moreover, observations that suckling does not influence alpha-MSH release, while it induces an increase in plasma ACTH is unexplained. The aim of the present study was to investigate the involvement of the NEDA system in the regulation of ACTH secretion and the participation of the IL in ACTH production in lactating rats. Untreated and estradiol (E(2))-substituted ovariectomized (OVX) females were also studied. The concentration of ACTH in the IL was higher in lactating rats than in OVX rats, while the opposite change in alpha-MSH level of the IL was observed. DA levels in the IL and the neural lobe were lower in lactating rats than in OVX rats. Suckling-induced ACTH response was eliminated by pretreatment with the DA receptor agonist, bromocriptine (BRC). Inhibition of DA biosynthesis by alpha-methyl-p-tyrosine (alphaMpT) and blockade of D2R by domperidone (DOM) elevated plasma ACTH levels, but did not influence plasma alpha-MSH levels in lactating rats. The same drugs had opposite effects in OVX and OVX + E(2) animals. In lactating mothers, BRC was able to block ACTH responses induced by both alphaMpT and DOM. Surgical denervation of the IL elevated basal plasma levels of ACTH. Taken together, these data indicate that melanotropes synthesize ACTH during lactation and its release from these cells is regulated by NEDA neurons.
