Blood Pressure in Rabbits

Description

Five rabbits were studied on two occasions, after treatment with saline (control) and after treatment with the 5-HT_3 antagonist MDL 72222. After each treatment ascending doses of phenylbiguanide were injected intravenously at 10 minute intervals and the responses of mean blood pressure measured. The goal was to test whether the cardiogenic chemoreflex elicited by phenylbiguanide depends on the activation of 5-HT_3 receptors.
