Inhibition of the aldosterone response to sodium depletion in man by stimulation of dopamine DA2 receptors


In this study we have investigated the effect of co-dergocrine, a selective DA2-agonist, on plasma aldosterone concentrations (PAC) in twelve patients with essential hypertension both in basal conditions and during sodium depletion. Sodium depletion resulted in an increase of PAC from 38 (13) pg/ml to 297 (21) pg/ml. The PAC response to sodium depletion was… (More)
