Generation of prostaglandin E-like material by the guinea-pig trachea contracted by histamine

The Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology
L GrodzinskaR J Gryglewski


Challenges of the superfused (1 ml min-1) trachea with histamine (100-200 mug) result in the release of prostaglandin E-like material (3-25 ng in terms of prostaglandin E2) but no prostaglandin F-like activity has been detected in the superfusate. This release is blocked by indomethacin (1mug ml-1) and then the contractile action of histamine is enhanced. It is concluded that the release of a prostaglandin E-like material by histamine from tracheal smooth muscles is a self-defensive mechanism protecting against the strong constriction of airways. The maximal relaxation of trachea by isoprenaline (50-500 mug) is not accompanied by the release of a prostaglandin-like material.

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.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.
