Permeability vs Diazoxide - What's the difference?

permeability | diazoxide |


As nouns the difference between permeability and diazoxide

is that permeability is the property of being permeable while diazoxide is a potassium channel activator which causes local relaxation in smooth muscle by increasing membrane permeability to potassium ions, used as a vasodilator to treat hypertension and in diabetes to decrease the secretion of insulin.
