- Serotonin Type-4 (5-HT4) Receptors as Therapeutic Targets: 5-HT4 Receptor Antagonists. Mattes, H.; Pfannkuche, H-J. // Current Medicinal Chemistry - Central Nervous System Agents;Mar2003, Vol. 3 Issue 1, p37
Characterization of 5-HT 4 receptors started in the late eighties following the important finding that the potent 5-HT3 receptor antagonist, tropisetron, could act as a competitive antagonist at the newly discovered 5-HT4 receptor. During recent years several pharmaceutical companies claimed...

- Increased 5-Hydroxytryptamine Mediates Post-Inflammatory Visceral Hypersensitivity via the 5-HydroxytryptamineÃ‚Â 3 Receptor in Rats. Yun-Dong Choi; Tae-Sik Sung; Hyun-Ju Kim; Jun-Ho La; Tae-Wan Kim; Il-Suk Yang // Digestive Diseases & Sciences;Nov2008, Vol. 53 Issue 11, p2909
AbstractÃ‚Â Ã‚Â Visceral hypersensitivity often develops after intestinal inflammation, but the pathogenic mechanism has not been clearly elucidated. We investigated whether this post-inflammatory visceral hypersensitivity is mediated by 5-hydroxytryptamine through activation of the...
- Value and Limitations of Calcium Channel Blockade In the Treatment of Pulmonary Hypertension Associated with CREST - Case Reports. Pressly, Thomas A.; Winkler, Anne; Alpert, Martin A.; Jackson, Robert W.; Mukerji, Vaskar; Benge, J. Michael; Sharp, Gordon C. // Angiology;Apr1988, Vol. 39 Issue 4, p385
Reversible vasospasm has been hypothesized to underlie the development of pulmonary hypertension in patients with CREST. Drugs that prevent arterial spasm have been used to treat pulmonary hypertension with variable results. The disparate pulmonary hemodynamic responses to calcium channel...
