Influence of electroshocks on carrageenan induced paw oedema in rats
NK Khanna, BR Madan
Electroshock seizures produced a significant inhibition of carrageenan-induced paw oedema in the rat. It has been suggested that in the mediation of this action tryptophan may be involved. The possible role of adrenergic system has been excluded by the observation that the anti-inflammatory response to electroshocks remains unaltered in rats pretreated with reserpine.
