Calcitonin gene-related peptide: vasoactive effects and potential therapeutic role.

Abstract

1. The cardiovascular biology of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) and the structurally related peptides amylin and adrenomedullin are briefly reviewed. 2. CGRP is a potent and long-lasting vasodilator; its possible role in disease, and the therapeutic potential of CGRP receptor agonists and antagonists is discussed.
