Effects of Sodium Intake , Furosemide , and Infusion of Atrial Natriuretic Peptide on the Urinary and Metabolic Clearances of Arginine Vasopressin in Normal Subjects *

Arginine vasopressin (AVP) and atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) have important influences on water and electrolyte metabolism, and studies on the interactions between these hormones may have important implications. We have investigated the effects of sodium intake, furosemide, and infusion of ANP on the urinary and metabolic (nonurinary) clearances of AVP… CONTINUE READING
