The combined measurements of norepinephrine and DHPG in particular led to a realization that deamination represented the primary determinant of norepinephrine turnover in sympathetic nerves (1).
Findings from this research continue to underscore the role of the central nervous system and specific neurotransmitters such as norepinephrine as part of the basic mechanisms of Fibromyalgia," said Ernest Choy M.
Now researchers have uncovered molecular changes triggered by norepinephrine that help nerve cells form new memories.
For the purposes of the trial, patients with more severe septic shock were defined as those needing more than 15 mcg/min of norepinephrine in the hour before randomization.
Norepinephrine (NE) has demonstrated excitatory and inhibitory properties; however, the specific pharmacology of these actions of NE has not been clearly established.
