Endogenous alpha2-adrenergic receptor-mediated neuroprotection after severe hypoxia in preterm fetal sheep.


Central alpha-adrenergic receptor activity is important for fetal adaptation to hypoxia before birth. It is unclear whether it is also important during recovery. We therefore tested the hypothesis that an infusion of the specific alpha(2)-adrenergic receptor antagonist idazoxan (1 mg/kg/h i.v.) from 15 min to 4 h after profound hypoxia induced by 25 min… (More)
