Involvement of mast cells, sensory afferents and sympathetic mechanisms in paw oedema induced by adenosine A(1) and A(2B/3) receptor agonists.


Both the adenosine A(1) receptor agonist N(6)-cyclopentyladenosine and the adenosine A(2B/3) receptor agonist N(6)-benzyl-5'-N-ethylcarboxamido adenosine (N(6)-B-NECA) produce an acute paw oedema response following local s.c. injection into the rat hindpaw. This study characterized aspects of the mechanisms by which these responses occur by determining the… (More)
