Beta-adrenergic blocking agents as potent antagonists of mescaline-induced contractions in the rat uterus

Experientia
R Jaques

Abstract

In the isolated rat uterus, mescaline induces contractions that are notably antagonized by catecholamines, by beta-adrenergic stimulants and certain beta-adrenergic blocking agents as well as by chlorpromazine, amitriptyline and methysergide.
