For assessing the effects of different drugs, Cebo, gallamine or neostigmine were intravenously (i.v.) delivered via the jugular vein.
Gallamine (Flaxedil) was purchased from Rhone-Poulenc Rorer (France), neostigmine (Prostigmine) from Hoffmann-La-Roche (Germany).
Cebo's action was compared to the well-known effects of the cholinesterase inhibitor neostigmine in the presence of the neuromuscular blocking agent gallamine.

3 shows the interaction between neostigmine and gallamine. The cholinesterase inhibitor neostigmine (5 X [10.sup.-4] g/kg body wt.) increased the contractile force of the tibia muscle (24%).
Whilst developing gallamine, Bovet and his co-workers studied a number of other substances with muscle relaxant properties.
it would seem more advisable to use gallamine to facilitate intubation on the post-burn patient ..."
