The rhythmicity of molluscan cardiac muscle is regulated by numerous neurotransmitters and neuromodulatory agents, the most widely studied of these being the biogenic amine 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT), the tetrapeptide FMRF-amide, and acetylcholine (ACh).
All subjects had an established diagnosis of chronic or episodic cluster headache, described as headaches typically lasting 45 minutes or longer that were distinguishable from other types of episodic headaches, and had tolerated previous treatment with a 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) agonist, such as sumatriptan or ergotamine.
ACTH could lead to a reduction in synthesis of central 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) and noradrenaline (NE), and the reduced 5-HT and NE in the central nervous system is closely related to depression.
