Muscarinic agents release tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) in the forearm circulation of normal subjects, but no information exists about their effect in those hypertensive patients in whom the response to endothelial-mediated vasodilators is blunted. Acetylcholine, an endothelium-dependent vasodilator and a muscarinic agonist that releases t-PA from in-vitro systems, and sodium nitroprusside, an endothelium-independent vasodilator, were infused into the brachial artery at rates calculated to cause a similar degree of vasodilatation. The study was performed in five elderly, smoking hypertensive patients in whom the clustering of detrimental factors for endothelial function permitted prediction of defective endothelial-mediated vasorelaxation, and five young, normotensive, nonsmoking male volunteers.
