Adrenoceptor Alterations in Different Tissues in Human and Animal Genetic Hypertension
It is scarcely necessary to stress the importance of adrenoceptor regulation in arterial hypertension. In this disease an altered response to adrenergic agonists has been described in different organs, and particularly in the blood vessels [1–6]. Moreover, antiadrenergic drugs, and particularly alpha and beta blockers, are effective antihypertensive agents.
