Localisation of the changes of the sensitivity of the airways by proteolytic enzymes (pronase) against acetylcholine.

Abstract

Proteolytic enzymes increase the sensitivity of the bronchial system against acetylcholine when inhaled as aerosols. These experiments were performed on 33 dogs in order to localize the area of sensitivity in the bronchial system responsible fe aerosol only to the upper part of the airtract sensitises the lower part of the airways against acetylcholine… (More)
