Pharmacology & Toxicology Poster Session

Poster 582 (Neuhaus,)

Craig Daly

Dr Neuhaus,

Congratulations, on a fine poster.  I have one question.  Is it not surprising that you get no response to norepinephrine in the smooth muscle of the prostate?  Given the use of alpha-blockers to treat BPH I would have expected a good response to adrenergic stimuli.  Is it possible that your culture conditions could cause a reduction in alpha-receptor number?

Best wishes.

Craig Daly
