Abstract

The action of an acute and subacute treatment with furazolidone on norepinephrine contents in some cerebral areas was studied. Furthermore, the compound's capability to inhibit adrenal response to a stress was evaluated. While the acute treatment did not cause any modifications of norepinephrine levels in the brain stem, hypothalamus, and in the rest of the brain, the subacute treatment showed a significant increase of NE contents in the brain stem. Finally, the chemotherapeutic agent was unable to inhibit adrenal response to manipulation stress. (19 references.)
