Effects of adrenaline infusion on the interstitial environment of subcutaneous adipose tissue as studied by microdialysis.
1. Adrenaline was infused at a rate of 25 ng min-1 kg-1 into seven healthy volunteers and its effects on adipose tissue were studied by microdialysis. 2. Adrenaline infusion led to a rapid rise in plasma adrenaline concentration from a basal value of 0.15 +/- 0.03 nmol/l to a peak value of 1.82 +/- 0.15 nmol/l within 30 min (analysis of variance: P < 0.001). Plasma noradrenaline levels increased from the basal value of 1.48 +/- 0.21 nmol/l to 1.78 +/- 0.20 nmol/l within 30 min of infusion ...Expand abstract
