Abstract

Some biological substances may be called “vasoneuroactive” since their target organs are the blood vessels and the nervous system (Sicuteri, 1965b). This is an arbitrary way to group these substances but useful for handling the pathogenetic problems of some important syndromes characterized by local circulatory disorders and nervous reactions, such as neuropsychic troubles and pain.
