Inhibition by loperamide of deoxycholic acid induced intestinal secretion

Naunyn-Schmiedeberg's Archives of Pharmacology
U M Farack, K Loeschke


The effect of loperamide on deoxycholic acid (DOC)-induced secretion was studied in ligated loops of the rat jejunum and colon in vivo. In controls, loperamide slightly augmented fluid absorption. 3 mmol DOC caused net fluid secretion. Loperamide reduced this secretion in the colon and reversed it to absorption in the jejunum. Na-K-ATPase specific activity and cAMP levels were measured in the jejunum, and [14C]erythritol clearance as an index of mucosal permeability in the colon. In the jejunum this opiate analogue affected neither basal or DOC-depressed Na-K-ATPase, nor mucosal cAMP. In the colon it reduced a large increase of the erythritol clearance caused by DOC. It is suggested that loperamide interferes with DOC-induced intestinal secretion in part by lowering mucosal permeability.

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.
