The effect of volume changes on the plasma concentration of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) in children with chronic renal failure was investigated by the use of a specific and sensitive radioimmunoassay. Predialysis plasma ANP was significantly higher in children with end-stage renal disease than in healthy children and children with advanced renal… CONTINUE READING
