beta(2)-Adrenoceptor activation attenuates endotoxin-induced acute renal failure.

Abnormalities in the beta(2)-adrenergic control of organ function have been implicated in the pathogenesis of several disease states, such as septic shock. The objectives of the present study were to define the contribution of beta(2)-adrenoceptors (beta(2)-AR) to normal renal physiology and to investigate whether overexpression of renal beta(2)-AR might be… CONTINUE READING
