Evaluates the role of bradykinin antagonists in blood pressure regulation. Conduct of experiments to further clarify the role of endogenous bradykinin in the maintenance of normotension in intact animals; Confirmation of the participation of the vasodilatory action of bradykinin in the maintenance of normal blood pressure; Assessment of the levels of blood pressure and circulating plasma catecholamines after administering the antagonist in intact animals.

    Capsaicin (8-methyl-N-vannillyl-6-nonenamide), via binding to the vanilloid receptor subtype 1 (VR1), stimulates a subpopulation of primary afferent neurons that project to cardiovascular and renal tissues. These capsaicinsensitive primary afferent neurons are not only involved in the perception...
