6 beta-Hydroxyandrostenedione: evidence for a new hypertensinogenic agent.

The hypertensinogenic effects of 6 beta-hydroxyandrostenedione (6 beta-OH-A-dione), which we reported as an amplifier of the kaliuretic action of aldosterone on the basis of the results obtained in bioassays using adrenalectomized rats, were evaluated in rats with the adrenals and compared with those of 19-hydroxyandrostenedione (19-OH-A-dione), an… CONTINUE READING
