Effects of cyclooxygenase inhibition on vascular responses evoked in fingers of men and women by iontophoresis of 1- and 2-adrenoceptor agonists.

Abstract

In 10 men and nine women aged 20-23 years, we aimed to establish whether endogenous prostanoids synthesised by cyclooxygenase (COX) affect responses evoked in the finger by α(1)- or α(2)-adrenoceptor agonists. Cutaneous red cell flux (cRCF) was recorded in dorsal finger during iontophoresis of phenylephrine (PE) or clonidine (0.5 mm, seven 0.1 mA pulses… (More)
