A recently predicted form of human calcitonin gene-related peptide, (beta CGRP) exhibits potent vasodilator activity in rabbit skin with a similar potency to the form of human CGRP originally described (alpha CGRP). Both peptides, because of their vasodilator activity, cause a potentiation of inflammatory oedema induced by mediators of increased vascular… CONTINUE READING
