calculated blood vessel maximum contractile force measurement +  
concentration of vasoconstrictor at which the force of blood vessel contraction is half the maximum value (EC50) +  
A calculated value for the concentration of a vasoconstrictor at which the energy produced by the active reduction in the diameter of a blood vessel in response to the application of the stimulus is halfway between the baseline value and the highest achievable value of such stimulus-induced contractile energy. A vasoconstrictor is any agent or condition that narrows blood vessels by constricting the smooth muscle in the vessel walls.
logarithm of the concentration of vasoconstrictor at which the force of blood vessel contraction is half the maximum value (Log EC50) +  
slope measurement of chemical-induced contraction +  
vasoconstrictor-induced blood vessel contractile force expressed as percent of force at baseline +
