Abstract

The effects of halothane on the contraction of mesenteric lymphatics was examined in rats. Following administration of 0.75% or 1.5% halothane, the contraction rate decreased from 10.6 +/- 3.1 to 7.4 +/- 2.5 times/minute and from 13.8 +/- 3.9 to 4.1 +/- 3.5 times/minute, respectively. Halothane caused a dose-dependent suppression of contractile movements of the mesenteric lymphatics.
