Abstract

Several Authors have demonstrated the occurrence of bradykinin in tissues affected by allergic and inflammatory processes: this find ing allowed them to postulate the participation of the polypeptide in the pathologic alterations of the vascular permeability and of the smooth muscle motility (Rocha e Silva, 1970).
