ABSTRACT
Naloxone, specific opiate antagonist, selectively elevates plasma dopamine level, with the dopamine changes significantly correlated with improved cardiovascular function and reduces the release of endorphin in the endorphin stress system. As the results, naloxone increases both, systemic blood pressure and regional blood flow, limiting secondary ischemic changes and improving neurological function in the C.N.S. lesion by the experimental studies. We have studied the clinical effects of naloxone on the 40 cases of C.N.S. lesions from April to October, 1983. We have discussed our results and reviewed literatures.
Key Words: Naloxone; Endorphin; Ischemia
