Effect of platelet-activating factor and its receptor antagonist, SRI 63-675, on gastric bleeding in rats

Abstract

Gastric bleeding from an induced mucosal wound was monitored for 2 h in a rat model in which the normal haemostasis was disturbed mechanically by perfusing the lesion with saline. The bleeding pattern was characterized by continuous and/or rebleeding episodes. Intravenous infusion of platelet-activating factor (PAF) in a dose of 25 ng/kg/min reduced the blood loss by 92% without affecting the bleeding pattern or the macroscopic appearance of the mucosa significantly. Concomitant administration of the PAF receptor antagonist SRI 63-675 in a dose of 50 micrograms/kg/min completely reversed the effects of PAF. The bleeding was unchanged after PAF receptor antagonist alone, suggesting that endogenous PAF might not participate in the in vivo haemostasis after an acute gastric mucosal lesion.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
