Abstract

Objective: In our study, the effects of glycosylated protein cross-link breaker, alagebrium was investigated on isolated rat carotid artery using myography. Alagebrium showed vasodilator effect on carotid artery rings; particularly, this effect was significantly increased in endothelium-intact rings.
