The kidney has long been attributed a key role in the pathogenesis of hypertension. Reduction of filtration area by glomerular loss is regarded currently as a major causative mechanism. Here we analyze the relationship between glomerulus number and blood pressure (BP) in a new model of genetic hypertension and the Prague hypertensive rat (PHR) and the(More)

A current hypothesis attributes hypertension to a reduction in glomerular filtration area by glomerular loss. The present study analyses the relationship between glomerular number(More)
