Effects of endothelin, platelet activating factor and thromboxane A2 in ferret lungs.

Abstract

We have compared the effects of three vasoactive agents, endothelin, platelet activating factor and thromboxane A2 analogue, U 46,619, in the pulmonary circulation of ferrets. Lungs of nine adult ferrets, body weight 1.06 +/- 0.27 kg, were isolated and perfused with sheep red blood cells suspended in Kreb's solution with 2 g% Dextran 70 (hematocrit 33 +/- 6… (More)
