Abstract

This was an investigation of the effects of some drugs on the smooth musculature of the canine thoracic duct isolated in vitro. The alterations of tonic activity of the experimental preparation, induced by these drugs, reveal the existence of specific receptors. In particular, the contracting action of catecholamines suggests that the activation of receptors of the alpha-adrenergic type is involved in the modulation of this vessel's dynamics. On the other hand, the sensitivity of the preparation to the action of acetylcholine suggests the presence of cholinergic receptors as well.
