In this study the synergistic role of the two haemodynamic parameters, pressure and wall shear stress, in macromolecular transport has been examined across the wall of the rabbit thoracic aorta. Arteries were subjected to 70 and 150 cm water pressure in the presence of fluid flow imposed shear stress. The flux of FITC labelled bovine serum albumin was found to be 3.36+/-1.34 x 10(-6) and 1.99+/-0.77 x 10(-6) cm/s (mean+/-S.D.) after 90 min incubation at 70 and 150 cm water, respectively.
