Abstract

Urapidil is a new antihypertensive drug which is thought to possess unique antiadrenergic properties. It is definitely a post-synaptic alpha adrenergic antagonist, but it also claimed to be a presynaptic alpha adrenergic agonist resulting in inhibition of norepinephrine release. To test the relative presynaptic and postsynaptic activity and selectivity in… (More)
