Associations of Vasodilation with chemical compounds

  • The integrity of these fibers was assessed objectively by measuring axon reflex vasodilation in response to stimulation with 10 percent acetylcholine introduced by electrophoresis [29].
  • It rose during brief vasodilation and fell during stimulation of nonexocytotic catecholamine release by tyramine and during ganglionic blockade [30].
  • The ability of long-term alpha-receptor blockade and vasodilation with trimazosin (TMZ) to improve exercise capacity was studied in patients with chronic, stable heart failure of varying severity (functional exercise classes B to D) [31].
  • We describe a significant correlation between NGF depletion and decreased skin axon-reflex vasodilation, mediated by small sensory fibers partly via substance P release [32].
  • Role of prostaglandin-mediated vasodilatation in inflammation [33].
