Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Neonatal cardiac tissue wa transplanted onto the cheek pouch membrane of hamsters. After vascularization, the response of the coronary microvasculature to various vasoactive drugs was tested. Of those drugs tested, adenosine caused the greatest dilatation while angiotensin II was the most potent vasoconstrictor.
