The effects of the selective CCK-A antagonist L-365,031 and the selective CCK-B antagonist L-365,260 on morphine analgesia and opiate tolerance and dependence in rats were examined. L-365,031 and L-365,260 had no effect on baseline pain thresholds in the radiant heat tail flick test but enhanced analgesia induced by a submaximal dose of morphine (4 mg/kg). Similarly, L-365,260 did not effect pain thresholds in the paw pressure test but enhanced morphine analgesia in this model. Rats injected ...Expand abstract
