The sustained increase in permeability produced by bradykinin is dose related

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    The purpose of this experiment was to determine in skin microvasculature the dose response to bradykinin (BRADY). Over a range 0, 0.2, 0.4, and 0.8 μg/kg/min BRADY was infused into the femoral artery of anesthetized dogs while lymph was collected from the hind paw. After 4 hours of continuous BRADY, venous pressure was increased 20 to 30 mm Hg by tightening a tourniquet around the thigh to further increase lymph flow and achieve a filtration-independent lymph-plasma ratio, for albumin (R Alb), immunoglobulin G (R IgG), and immunoglobulin M (R IgM). These proteins were measured with immunoelectrophoresis and immunodiffusion.
