Ethacrynic acid inhibits transcellular NaCl reabsorption in dog kidneys in doses of 1 to 10 mg.kg-1 and proximal bicarbonate-dependent reabsorption at higher doses.

Abstract

In anesthetized dogs, sodium reabsorption in the kidney tubule was continuously reduced with increasing dosage of ethacrynic acid until 59% of the filtered load was excreted with 25 mg.kg-1 at constant glomerular filtration rate. With 50 mg.kg-1, glomerular filtration rate fell, but fractional sodium reabsorption was further reduced by 7%. In the dosage… (More)
