[en] 1. The modulatory role of neuropeptide Y (NPY) on pulmonary oedema induced by acetylcholine and capsaicin was investigated. The effects of NPY on the haemodynamic response to acetylcholine, phenylephrine and substance P were also investigated. 2. Isolated, ventilated, exsanguinated lungs of the rabbit were perfused with a constant flow of recirculating blood-free perfusate. The double/arterial/venous occlusion method was used to partition the total pressure gradient (delta Pt) into four components: the arterial gradient (delta Pa), the pre- and post-capillary gradients (respectively delta Pa' and delta Pv') and the venous pressure gradient (delta Pv). Endothelial permeability was evaluated by measuring the capillary filtration coefficient (Kf,c). 3. Acetylcholine (10(-8) M to 10(-4) M) and substance P (SP, 10(-10) M to 10(-6) M) induced a concentration-dependent increase in the Kf,c. Capsaicin (10(-4) M) and 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) (10(-4) M) also increased this parameter. NPY (10(-8) M) completely inhibited the effects of acetylcholine and capsaicin on the Kf,c, without preventing the effects of substance P and 5-HT. 4. Acetylcholine induced concentration-dependent vasoconstriction in the precapillary segment. The effect was inhibited by NPY and aspirin, an inhibitor of cyclo-oxygenase, while ketanserin, a 5-HT2 receptor antagonist, and SR140333, a new NK1 antagonist, had no protective effect. Phenylephrine increased delta Pa at high concentration, an effect also inhibited by NPY and aspirin. Substance P had no significant haemodynamic effect. When injected together with NPY, substance P (10(-6) M) induced a significant increase in the total pressure gradient.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
