The role of endothelin in FK506-induced vascular reactivity changes in rat perfused kidney.

Abstract

Tacrolimus (FK506) is an immunosuppressant agent that is widely used in transplanted patients. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of endothelin in the acute effects of FK506 on the vascular reactivity in perfused isolated rat renal and mesenteric vasculature. Left kidney/mesentery of male Wistar rats (230-300 g) were perfused by a constant… (More)
