Subjects who got the right treatment because of acetylcholine testing outpaced the standard-care group by almost 12 points on the Seattle Angina Questionnaire at 6 months; they could walk farther and didn't have crushing angina almost every day (P = .001).
On the one hand, acetylcholinesterase, muscarinic acetylcholine receptors, and nicotinic acetylcholine receptors, which are efficacious in different preclinical and clinical pain models, can cause profound cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, and even central side effects and death [7].

Then, tissue was exposed to atropine (10 [micro]M) for 2 min, and subsequently, recordings were obtained after exposure to acetylcholine (100 [micro]M) again at 0.5, 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 min.
"There was every reason to think that we would find what we found if we could actually boost acetylcholine, and switching from continuous to intermittent stimulation was the step that was necessary to do that," Blake says.
