Abstract
Aortic rings dissected from rats treated with ciclosporin A showed reduced relaxation induced by the endothelium dependent vasolidator acetylcholine, but unchanged responses induced by glyceryl trinitrate. After eight weeks of ciclosporin A treatment, the relaxation induced by both acetylcholine and glyceryl trinitrate was inhibited. In addition, phenylephrine-induced contractions were slightly enhanced and vascular prostacyclin production was reduced by more than 80%. These effects may participate in the hypertensive and thrombo-embolic complications associated with the clinical use of ciclosporin A.
