The importance of plasma protein concentration, renal vascular resistance, and arterial pressure as mediators of the natriuretic response to volume expansion was investigated in anesthetized dogs. Saline loading depressed plasma protein concentration and increased arterial pressure but did not decrease renal vascular resistance. Restoring plasma protein(More)
Anesthetized dogs receiving an infusion of chlorothiazide and ethacrynic acid were given 600-ml infusions of distilled water or dilute dextrose solutions. The absolute rate of tubular sodium reabsorption was depressed, and the glomerular filtration rate was increased during the water loading, despite the associated decreases in plasma sodium concentration(More)
SUMMARY Chlorothiazide and ethacrynic acid were given to normal humans and patients with cirrhosis and ascites, with replacement of urinary losses, to obtain information on (1) the influence of different states of sodium balance and excretion on the effectiveness of the drugs in blocking tubular reabsorption and promoting excretion of sodium, and (2) the(More)
Chia (Salvia hispanica), an herbaceous plant native to Latin America, has become important in the last 20 years due to its beneficial effects on health. Here, we present the first record and identification of two viruses in chia plants. The comparison of the complete nucleotide sequences showed the presence of two viral species with the typical genome(More)
