Abstract

The actions of neuropeptide Y (NPY) on the circulation is currently the subject of much research that has been stimulated by findings of its co-storage and co-operation with noradrenaline in sympathetic nerve fibres. Lars Edvinsson and colleagues describe the evidence that NPY is involved in the regulation of the cardiovascular system as a neuromodulator/neurotransmitter. This may open novel avenues for the treatment of, for example, hypertension and vasospastic disorders.
