  • 1 November 1963
THE CONCEPT that drugs react with specific receptors in living tissues to produce pharmacologic effects is believed to have originated with Langley in 19051 although Ehrlich and others had certainlyExpand

Age attribution in domestic sheep by skeletal and dental maturation: A pilot study of available sources
The aim of the study was to assess the quality of the available evidence pertaining to the effects of sex and castration on the timing of skeletal and dental maturation in sheep. The initial premiseExpand

Evidence for Lack of Innervation of /?‐2 Adrenoceptors in the Blood Vessels of the Gracilis Muscle of the Dog
Cardiac β-l adrenoceptors respond to sympathetic nerve stimulation (SNS), but it is not clear that SNS evokes β-2 adrenoceptor-mediated vasodilation. Sensitivity of β adrenoceptors to catecholaminesExpand

RELATION BETWEEN PHARMACOLOGIC AUGMENTATION OF CARDIAC CONTRACTILE FORCE AND THE ACTIVATION OF MYOCARDIAL GLYCOGEN PHOSPHORYLASE
The relationship between contractile force of the right ventricle and myocardial glycogen phosphorylase was investigated in the dog heart in situ. The positive inotropic effect of epinephrine,Expand

Pharmacological basis for the use of adrenergic agonists and antagonists in cardiogenic shock and hypotension.
Summary In the therapy of cardiogenic shock, it is difficult to develop a rationale for the use of norepinephrine and metaraminol in doses where alpha adrenergic activity predominates and whichExpand

Effects of increased reflex sympathetic activity on contractile force of the heart.
Reflexly induced changes in cardiac contractile force and arterial pressure in vagotomized dogs were compared with those produced by direct postganglionic cardiac sympathetic nerve stimulation, by ...
