OBJECTIVE In this study, we sought to appreciate the role of adenosine in the regulation of pulmonary vascular tone, especially in the case of clinical pulmonary hypertension, by investigating the relationship between endogenous plasma adenosine levels and pulmonary artery vasoconstriction. METHODS Adenosine plasma concentrations, were measured simultaneously in the distal right pulmonary artery and in the femoral artery, both at steady state (room air) and during pure oxygen inhalation… CONTINUE READING
