The article presents information on the inhibition of the epinephrine-thyroxin induced arteriosclerosis by phentolamine. Epinephrine induced aortie selerosis has first been described by a scientist in 1903. Since then a volumnious literature been summarized. Similar results have been obtained in dos and monkeys. Studying the epinephrine induced arteriosclerosis in rabbits, the scientists were able to enhance the epinephrin aortie selerosis in frequency and intensity by combination of intravenous epinephrine with parenteral thyroxin.
