Pro Experimentis


A simple, rapid and sensitive in vivo bioassay for the initial screening of neuromuscular junction (NMJ) blocking agents has been accomplished. The i.v. retro-orbital plexus (IVROP) mode of injection was utilized, for the first time, in conjunction with the mouse inclined screen bioassay.
