Nonpeptide endothelin receptor antagonists. X. Inhibition of endothelin-1- and hypoxia-induced pulmonary pressor responses in the guinea pig by the endothelin receptor antagonist, SB 217242.

This study investigated the effects of the nonpeptide endothelin (ET) receptor antagonist, SB 217242, against ET-1-induced pulmonary pressor responses and in a model of hypoxia-induced pulmonary hypertension in the guinea pig. In guinea pig isolated pulmonary artery rings, SB 217242 (3-300 nM) produced a concentration-dependent inhibition of ET-1-induced… (More)
