L'auteur résume les mécanismes de l'homéostasie physiologique de la pression artérielle et indique que la réaction à la pression intravasculaire des parois artérielles barosensibles constitue un facteur prédominant de la régulation réflexe de la pression artérielle. Une élévation du seuil d'excitabilité des parois artérielles barosensibles pourrait(More)
Circulating interleukin-6 (IL-6) concentrations correlate with disease activity in severe inflammatory conditions, in sepsis and in some hematological malignancies. On the other hand, IL-6 is a potent stimulator of osteoclastogenesis and has been implicated as a contributory factor in the genesis of osteopenic conditions. We measured circulating IL-6 levels(More)
Local carotid sinus application of noradrenaline induces a stimulation of the pressoceptors at different constant physiologic and nonphysiologic intrasinusal pressure ranges. Tension and resistance to stretch of the arterial wall where the pressoceptors are located, are the fundamental factors affecting, at different pressure ranges, those receptors which(More)
