Figure 1

Pulmonary endothelial function, represented as cumulative Ach dose response curves in pulmonary artery rings from smokers (n = 29) and never-smokers (n = 10). Smokers had impaired relaxation in response to Ach, when compared with never-smokers (p < 0.01; panel A). The smokers were divided into two subgroups according to the presence (ED+, n = 11) or absence (ED, n = 18) of pulmonary endothelial dysfunction (p < 0.01; panel B).
