Contractile actions of C5a on isolated porcine myocardium.


Although intracoronary administration of the complement component, C5a, produces deleterious effects on regional coronary blood flow and segmental ventricular function, it is unclear whether a direct myocardial action contributes to the dysfunction induced by the anaphylatoxin. We therefore evaluated the effects of purified porcine C5a on contractile… (More)
