We studied the effects of a series of 16 vasodilators on the intrahepatic vasoconstriction induced by norepinephrine in the isolated perfused rat liver. The vasodilators were nonselective alpha-adrenergic antagonists (phentolamine, ifenprofil, isoxsuprine and buflomedil), a nonselective beta-adrenergic antagonist (propranolol) and an agonist (isoproterenol), an alpha 2-adrenergic agonist (clonidine), calcium channel blockers (verapamil and diltiazem), nitrovasodilators (nitroglycerin, sodium… CONTINUE READING
