ABSTRACT
Pulmonary arterial response to serotonin was demonstrated by injecting this agent through a polythene catheter into the pulmonary circulation of anesthetized rabbits, and by filling the pulmonary arteries immediately thereafter with a radiographic contrast medium (Chlorbismol). This did not penetrate the capillaries and thus killed the animal. The results obtained in normal animals were compared with those in animals which were injected with a large single dose of reserpine, 24 hours before the examination. Reserpine caused a definite dilatation of the pulmonary arteries. The vigorous pulmonary arterial response to serotonin was apparently due to its local effect on the pulmonary arteries.
