Blood pressure reduced by methylene chloride. A study in spontaneously hypertensive rats.

Abstract

Effects of methylene chloride (CH2Cl2) on blood pressure (BP), body weight, plasma renin activity, hepatic histological structure of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs) and normotensive control rats (NCRs) were studied. Administration of 0.15 mL/100 g/day CH2Cl2 to SHRs for five days reduced the BP from 172 +/- 7 mm Hg (mean +/- SEM) to 155 +/- 6 mm Hg… (More)
