    Abstract:
    Three experiments were carried out in rats to evaluate the analgesic effects of the benzodiazepine antagonist, Ro 15-1788. Expt. 1 demonstrated a diazepam reversible analgesic effect of Ro 15-1788 using the tail-flick test. Expt. 2 analyzed the effects of Ro 15-1788 in the hot-plate test at various doses. Low doses of Ro 15-1788 proved analgesia 20 min after drug injection, whereas high doses had no analgesic effect on the 20 min test, but were effective on the 50 min test. Expt. 3 demonstrated that the opiate antagonist, naloxone, had no effect on analgesia produced by Ro 15-1788 in the hot-plate test. The analgesic effects of Ro 15-1788 may be attributable to its reported anxiogenic properties.
