UNLABELLED The effects of L-type calcium channel blockers (CCBs) selective for the gastrointestinal tract (pinaverium) or non-selective (nicardipine and diltiazem), were investigated on CCK-, CCh- or KCl-induced contraction of smooth muscle cells (SMC) isolated from the circular muscle layer of normal or of inflamed human colons. In the normal tissue colon… CONTINUE READING
