The response of plasma aldosterone (PA) and plasma renin activity (PRA) to ACTH stimulation (0.25 mg Tetracosactide infusion/10 h) and to insulin-induced hypoglycemia (0.1 U/kg b.w.) has been studied in 34 essential hypertensive (EH) patients.

The increase (12-fold basal values) in plasma 18-OH-DOC in normal subjects under Tetracosactide(More)
