The well established differential pulmonary handling of angiotensins I and II indicates the possibility that vascular receptors for the deca- and octa-peptides do not necessarily involve common sites in the renal vasculature either. Experimental findings involving haemodynamic changes within the kidney in anaesthetised and conscious sheep, with utilization(More)
A short account of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system is given with emphasis on the relationship between the octapeptide angiotensin II and its decapeptide precursor angiotensin I. Although the decapeptide is generally assumed to have no biological activity, extensive investigations have indicated that such an assumption is almost certainly(More)
Angiotensin II markedly lowers the relative cell content of renal venous blood both with injection into the jugular vein and into the left ventricle of anaesthetised sheep; angiotensin I has a similar effect in this regard when given intravenously but the decreased cellular fraction is much less evident with left ventricular injection when the direct(More)
Urine samples from the greatest proportion of the numerical workload of most clinical microbiology laboratories. During the screening by microscopy, atypical cells were detected which did not conform to the normal cellular morphology found in urinary deposits. These specimens were referred to the Department of Cytopathology for a second opinion. From these(More)
