Adrenergic and non-adrenergic mechanisms in sympathetic vascular control of the nasal mucosa.


1. Co-existence of NA and NPY-LI was observed in the dense network of sympathetic nerves around both resistance and capacitance vessels in the nasal mucosa from most species including man. NPY-LI seems also to be present together with VIP-LI and PHI-LI in periglandular and some perivascular parasympathetic fibres in some species. 2. A new in vivo model was… (More)
