Effects of bolus injections of leukotrienes and norepinephrine on forelimb vascular and lymphatic pressures.


Leukotrienes, lypoxygenase metabolites of arachadonic acid, have been reported to be potent vasoconstrictors in some organs. This study was undertaken to delineate the actions of leukotrienes on both vascular and lymphatic vessels in the canine forelimb.
