Endothelin-1 plasma levels and hypertension in cyclosporine-treated renal transplant patients.

Abstract

Experimental models suggest that endothelin-1 (ET-1) has a significant role in the pathogenesis of cyclosporin A (CyA)-induced hypertension. However, its serum levels evaluated in different studies, including patients who received solid organ transplants, exhibited controversial results.
