Nineteen patients have been treated with timolol maleate (a non selective beta-blocking) and the decrease of their blood arterial pressure was correlated with the suppression of renine secretion. The patients which controlled their arterial pressure (63%) as well as those who did not (37%) showed a significative decrease of the plasmatic renine. The patients were diagnosed of essential hypertension, with normal renal function and formed an homogenous group. The sodium intake was similar in all… CONTINUE READING
