The effect of antidepressants on the calcium content of the aorta of reserpine-treated rabbits



The effect of antidepressants on the calcium content of the aorta of reserpine-treated rabbits



Physiologia Bohemoslovaca 24(4): 357-362



The pre-administration of reserpine in a dose of 5 mg/kg b.o. i.v. 24 before the experiment reduced the calcium content of the thoracic aorta of rabbits weighing 1,000--1,500 g. It had no effect on the calcium level in older animals. The calcium content also fell after 10 days' administration of reserpine in daily doses of 0.1 mg/kg b.w. Pre-administration of the monoaminooxidase inhibitors phenelsine and nialamide inhibited the reserpine-induced decrease in the calcium content of the vascular wall, although by themselves they had no effect on it. Prothiadene, a thymoanaleptic, likewise inhibited, the decrease in the calcium content when administered per os in a dose of 5 mg/kg b.w. 5 hours before reserpine.
