In the present study, we have investigated the vascular effects of some extracts of various Viscum album L. samples on isolated rat aortic ring preparation. We have found that different Viscum album samples showed different response profiles when tested on precontracted arterial segments and only ethanol extracts caused significant relaxations on rat aortic rings.
