Effect of adrenergic blockade on adrenaline induced pulmonary edema in mice
C Jayachandran, P Murty
The effect of adrenergic blockade on adrenaline induced pulmonary edema was studied on mice by using specific adrenergic blockers. The results showed that alpha blockade did not show significant effect on adrenaline induced pulmonary edema (A.P.E.) whereas beta blockade prevented A.P.E. in mice. The effect of combined alpha and beta blockade on A.P.E was not significant and the reason for this has to be sought further. The study showed that beta adrenergic receptor seems to have a role in production of A.P.E. in mice.
