Abstract In vitro, rat mast cells show a dose-inhibition profile when stimulated with compound 48/80 in the presence of isoprenaline. Isoprenaline-induced inhibition is stereoselective at low concentrations, being greater on pleural mast cells. In vitro, polymyxin B (0.02-0.05 mg/kg) induces a marked hypotension and slow heart rate, but not tachyphylaxis. Both effects were not suppressed in the presence of isoprenaline (with short half-life in vivo), but orciprenaline does induce a clear inhibition of Polymyxin B-induced hypotension, which correlates well with heart rate.
