Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP), angiotensin II (Ang II), and aldosterone (Aldo) in plasma and creatinine clearance (Ccr) were determined during basal conditions in 17 patients with the nephrotic syndrome and 20 control subjects. In addition, six of the patients were studied after seven remissions of the syndrome. In the nephrotic syndrome ANP was higher than in the control group (9.7 (median) versus 7.2 pmol/l, p less than 0.01), Ccr was lower (55 versus 99 ml/min, p less than 0.01… CONTINUE READING
