Fenofibrate increases neuronal vasoconstrictor response in mesenteric arteries from diabetic rats: role of noradrenaline, neuronal nitric oxide and calcitonin gene-related peptide.


We evaluated the possible effects of long-term fenofibrate treatment on adrenergic, nitrergic and CGRP-ergic innervation function in mesenteric arteries from streptotozin-induced diabetic rats. We analysed the vasoconstrictor response to electrical field stimulation (EFS) and the effects of the α antagonist phentolamine, the calcitonin gene related peptide… (More)
