Effect of histamine infusion on circulating methionine-enkephalin and catecholamine concentrations.

Abstract

In 5 normal adult men, histamine was infused i.v. for 5 min at 20 micrograms/kg/h and at 80 micrograms/kg/h on two occasions one week apart. Diastolic blood pressure fell and heart rate, plasma adrenaline and noradrenaline all rose in a dose-dependent manner, but plasma methionine-enkephalin (Met-Enk) concentrations were unchanged. These results indicate… (More)
