(v. t.) To bring on; to effect; to cause; as, a fever induced by fatigue or exposure.
(v. t.) To produce, or cause, by proximity without contact or transmission, as a particular electric or magnetic condition in a body, by the approach of another body in an opposite electric or magnetic state.

(1) Intrathecal injection of zopiclone potentiated morphine antinociception, while the intracerebroventricular injection of zopiclone failed to enhance morphine antinociception and the intracerebroventricular injection of flumazepil to antagonize the intraperitoneal-zopiclone-induced increase in morphine antinociception.
(2) Neutrons induced a dose-dependent cytotoxicity and mutation frequency in the AL cells.
(3) within 12 h of birth followed by similar injections every day for 10 consecutive days and then every second day for a further 8 weeks, with mycoplasma broth medium (tolerogen), to induce immune tolerance.
(4) Structure assignment of the isomeric immonium ions 5 and 6, generated via FAB from N-isobutyl glycine and N-methyl valine, can be achieved by their collision induced dissociation characteristics.

(6) Open field behaviors and isolation-induced aggression were reduced by anxiolytics, at doses which may be within the sedative-hypnotic range.
(7) The ability of azelastine to influence antigen-induced contractile responses (Schultz-Dale phenomenon) in isolated tracheal segments of the guinea-pig was investigated and compared with selected antiallergic drugs and inhibitors of arachidonic acid metabolism.
(8) Together these results suggest that IVC may operate as a selective activator of calpain both in the cytosol and at the membrane level; in the latter case in synergism with the activation induced by association of the proteinase to the cell membrane.
(9) Ethanol and L-ethionine induce acute steatosis without necrosis, whereas azaserine, carbon tetrachloride, and D-galactosamine are known to produce steatosis with varying degrees of hepatic necrosis.
(10) Microionophoretically applied excitatory amino acids induced firing of extracellularly recorded single units in a tissue slice preparation of the mouse cochlear nucleus, and the similarly applied antagonist 2-amino-5-phosphonovalerate (2APV) was demonstrated to be a selective N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist.
(11) Lp(a) also complexes to plasmin-fibrinogen digests, and binding increases in proportion to the time of plasmin-induced fibrinogen degradation.
(12) Meanwhile the efficiency of muscarinic antagonists in inhibition of tremor reaction induced by arecoline administration is associated with interaction between the drugs and the M2-subtype.
(13) A quadripolar catheter was positioned either at the site of earliest ventricular activation during induced monomorphic ventricular tachycardia or at circumscribed areas of the left ventricle.
(14) There fore, the adverse effects may be induced by such quartz or silicon compounds.
(15) The present study was therefore carried out to specify further which type of adrenoceptor is involved in lithium-induced hyperglycaemia and inhibition of insulin secretion.
(16) 10D1 mAb induced a substantial proliferation of peripheral blood T cells when cross-linked with goat anti-mouse Ig antibody.
(17) These effects are similar to those reported for AVP and phorbol esters, activators of protein kinase C. Forskolin and isoproterenol, which induce cAMP accumulation, activated extractable topoisomerase II (maximum 5-15 min after treatment), but not topoisomerase I. Permeable cyclic nucleotide analogs dBcAMP and 8BrcGMP selectively activated extractable topoisomerase II and topoisomerase I activities, respectively.
(18) A beta-adrenergic receptor cDNA cloned into a eukaryotic expression vector reliably induces high levels of beta-adrenergic receptor expression in 2-12% of COS cell colonies transfected with this plasmid after experimental conditions are optimized.
(19) Immediate postexercise two-dimensional echocardiography demonstrated exercise-induced changes in 8 (47%) patients (2 with normal and 6 with abnormal results from rest studies).
(20) It was concluded that metoclopramide and dexamethasone showed an excellent antiemetic effect on acute drug-induced emesis, as well as on delayed emesis, induced by cisplatin.
(a.) Causing sleep; tending to cause sleep; soporiferous; as, the soporific virtues of opium.
(n.) A medicine, drug, plant, or other agent that has the quality of inducing sleep; a narcotic.
(1) The maximum soporific effect did not occur until 90-120 s after injection.
(2) His answer threatened a soporific summer-long contest that would expose a great gap between the self-styled people's party and the people themselves.
(3) 'P ublic sector commissioning": I can't think of a phrase that conveys something so important and yet sounds so soporific.
(4) Soporific effect of hexenal was distinctly increased in the burns, which correlated to the severity of thermic impairment.
(5) Pebble-dashed walls, red roof tiles, Velux windows, cherry trees... these things make me think not of daring strokes of oil on canvas, but of the safe, the soporific - a round of golf, perhaps, or a gentle Sunday-night sitcom.
(6) Less drugs were used in general, and the use of tranquillizers and soporifics was cut down to a third.
(7) Higher doses of naloxone (1Opmol into the LC) were however, required to antagonize the behavioural and ECoG soporific effects induced by the Kappa-receptor agonist U 50,488H.
(8) The drug is well tolerated by the patients and does not produce any inhibitory or soporific action.
(9) And, intriguingly, a 2009 study at Mashhad University in Iran revealed an extract of saffron did have soporific qualities, on mice at least.
(10) Instead, the atmosphere is soporific, with an underlying threat of menace.
(11) Toxicological urine analysis for drugs--directed mainly at soporifics, sedatives, tranquilizers, and pain-relievers--on 84 patients involved in industrial accidents yielded the following results.
(12) What had been a sombre occasion for City fans as they looked at an Etihad Stadium dugout without Mancini for a first time since December 2009 became further muted when a soporific start to the game had ended with Anthony Pilkington opening the scoring for Norwich.
(13) 1 Experiments were performed on a variety of tissues from different species to establish whether or not the properties of p-chlorophenylalanine methyl ester (PCPA) included a 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT)-like action which might explain the soporific action of PCPA in chicks.
(14) Because of their pharmacologic action, alcohol and high doses of soporifics used as remedies may produce REM-deficit sleep and actually prolong insomnia.
(15) Imagine my surprise in the morning to find it was gone 7am – the soporific effect of the loud snoring made my baby sleep through the night for the first time!
(16) Long sleep (LS) and short sleep (SS) mice have a differential sensitivity to the behavioral actions of an adenosine agonist, R-phenylisopropyl-adenosine (PIA) that parallels their differential sensitivity to the soporific effects of ethanol.
(17) If so, the soporific way Per Mertesacker dawdled in possession and Kieran Gibbs clumsily punted the ball into the air suggested there had been scant impact.
(18) After 53 days of alcohol ingestion there was no evidence of tolerance to the soporific effects of parenterally administered ethanol and removal of the ethanol solutions failed to produce any signs of alcohol withdrawal.
(19) Further, much evidence also supports the conclusion that most of these hypnotic-depressants and anesthetics could exert their soporific influence by a potentiation of GABA activity.
(20) Recent evidence, as well as reevaluated previous evidence, indicates that Long-Sleep mice are more sensitive to the soporific effects of three major classes of CNS depressants (alcohols, barbiturates, and benzodiazepines), as well as many other anesthesia-inducing compounds (adenosine, chloral hydrate, trichloroethanol, paraldehyde, nitrous oxide, enflurane, and isoflurane).
