Adrenoceptor (sub)populations (alpha 1, beta and beta 1/beta 2 ratio) in human lung tissue were characterized by means of radioligand binding assays. Lung tissue specimens for these assays were obtained at thoracotomy from normal individuals and COLD patients. The patients were not receiving therapy known to influence adrenoceptor characteristics. In COLD… CONTINUE READING
