  • Descrizione: The ability of an anticonvulsant dose (0.1 mg/kg i.p.) of imidazenil, a new partial agonist of benzodiazepine receptors, to antagonize the convulsions and the increase in t-[ 35S]butylbicyclophosphorothionate ([ 35S]TBPS) binding to the γ-aminobutyric acid type A (GABA A) receptor elicited by isoniazid, an inhibitor of central GABAergic function, was evaluated in mice chronically treated (3 times daily for 30 days) with the same dose of imidazenil. The challenge dose of imidazenil, administered 36 h after the last injection of the chronis treatment protocol, reduced both isoniazid-induced convulsions and the isoniazid-induced increase in [ 35S]TBPS binding to the same marked extent as in control mice. These results indicate that long-term treatment with a pharmacologically effective dose of imidazenil failed to induce tolerance to both the anticonvulsant effect and the positive modulatory action on GABA A receptor function of this drug in mouse brain. ...
