Beta-adrenoceptor blocking drugs, heart rate and genetic hypertension development in rats

C RicherJ F Giudicelli


In spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs) chronically treated during their growth with beta-adrenoceptor blocking drugs, no correlation was found between the reduction in heart rate and the prevention of genetic hypertension development.

Antihypertensive Agents: Mechanisms of Action

Antihypertensive drugs are used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) which aims to prevent the complications of high blood pressure, such as stroke and myocardial infarction. Discover the latest research on antihypertensive drugs and their mechanism of action here.

Adrenergic Receptors: Trafficking

Adrenergic receptor trafficking is an active physiological process where adrenergic receptors are relocated from one region of the cell to another or from one type of cell to another. Discover the latest research on adrenergic receptor trafficking here.
