Experimental studies suggest that danazol can be associated with changes in blood pressure. Nevertheless, there is scarce information about the effects of danazol and its derivatives at cardiovascular level. To clarify on this phenomenon, we evaluated the effects of danazol de-rivative on perfusion pressure in isolated rat heart using Langendorff f...
Article
Experimental and clinical studies suggest that dihydrotestosterone can be associated with changes in blood pressure. In this work, the effects induced by dihydrotestosterone and dihydrotestosterone-dihydropyrimidine on perfusion pressure and coronary resistance were evaluated, in isolated rat heart using the Langendorff flow model. Additionally, th...
