The inotropic responsiveness to adrenergic stimulation is diminished in hypertension associated with left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). This was shown in hypertrophied hearts from renal hypertensive rats (RHR) (two-kidney, one clip hypertension, Goldblatt) 6 weeks after renal artery clipping when compared to age-matched normotensive sham-operated controls(More)
The aim of the present study was to prepare an effective and safe toxoid for the Egyptian Cobra (Naja haje) Venom by gamma irradiation. The effects of gamma irradiation (0.1-10 M rad) on the toxicity, as well as the antigen antibody complex formation reactivity was described. It appears from the results that the lethality of Naja haje venom irradiated in(More)
The possible contribution of changes in cardiac beta-adrenoceptors to alterations in cardiac responses to isoprenaline were investigated in hearts isolated from rats with renovascular hypertension (two-kidney, one-clip Goldblatt), 6, 12 and 18 weeks after renal artery clipping. Cardiac responses were determined in vitro (Langendorff preparation), and(More)
Our previous studies, in vivo and in vitro, have shown reduced inotropic responsiveness to isoproterenol of hypertrophied hearts in renovascular hypertensive rats. In the present study, we have investigated, in the same model, the effects of treatment either by nephrectomy or captopril on the inotropic responsiveness to isoproterenol and on the number and(More)
