ABSTRACT
A new test in which environmental temperature and sedation are utilized to induce vasoconstriction and vasodilatation has been described. Preliminary experience indicates that it is simple and satisfactory, and that it is better tolerated than most methods in current use. The importance of the cortical �psychomotor� factor in vasomotion, and in the performance of vasomotor testing, has been demonstrated. The therapeutic implications of this factor have been indicated. Because of its high degree of reliability, coupled with ease of performance, it is now employed exclusively as the vasomotor test of choice in this clinic.

    This study concerns the investigation of felodipine's influence on some parameters of vasomotion physiology. Felodipine is a new generation 1,4 dihydropyridine (1,4 DHP) Ca2+-entrance blocker with marked vascular selectivity. It was found that felodipine 1�10 �M presents a Ca2+...

    The article focuses on the evaluation of the method in analyzing peripheral vasodilation. In arterial disorders of the extremities it is characteristic that the blood supply to the limbs is impaired.

    Background: With continuous exposure to β2-adrenergic agonists, vascular tissue becomes desensitized to agonist-mediated vasodilatation. We studied the effects of two common polymorphisms of the β2-adrenergic receptor, one at codon 16 and one at codon 27, on agonist-mediated vasodilatation...
