Vascular dilatatory responses to sodium nitroprusside (SNP) and alpha-adrenergic antagonism in female and male normal and diabetic rats.

Abstract

Diabetes is associated with impaired vascular dilatatory responses that appear to be influenced by sex as well as diabetic state. Therefore, we hypothesized that vascular and sympathetic control function exhibit a greater deterioration following the induction of diabetes in female than in male rats. We conducted a comparative determination of the effect of… (More)
