Problems of assessing the biological value of prostaglandin in vitro (author's transl)

K Tullberg, H Jacobi


Isolated rat stomach strips were used to study the antagonism between psychotropic drugs and prostaglandin. It was found that the inhibited prostaglandin effect registered under the influence of psychotropic drugs in due not so much to the inhibition of synthetase action but rather to an inhibitory action on liberated prostaglandin. An atropine-like effect of the psychotropic drugs or an inhibition in the formation of endogenic prostaglandin in the walls are ruled out as possible explanations. The following possible explanations were discussed: a) the tested psychotropic drugs block prostaglandin receptors in the stomach; b) the test substances react with prostaglandin in the nutritive solution; c) the substances stimulate metabolic processes in the stomach wall that break down prostaglandin.

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.
