The alpha2 -adrenergic receptors in hypertension and heart failure: experimental and clinical studies.

Abstract

This is a brief overview of experimental and clinical studies exploring the hemodynamic functions of the alpha2A and alpha2B adrenergic receptor (AR) subtypes in animals submitted to genetic manipulations or gene treatment, as well as the clinical effects of central sympathetic suppression with the alpha2-AR agonist clonidine in patients with ischemic heart… (More)
