Overload proteinuria is followed by salt-sensitive hypertension caused by renal infiltration of immune cells.


Recent evidence suggests that salt-sensitive hypertension develops as a consequence of renal infiltration with immunocompetent cells. We investigated whether proteinuria, which is known to induce interstitial nephritis, causes salt-sensitive hypertension. Female Lewis rats received 2 g of BSA intraperitoneally daily for 2 wk. After protein overload (PO), 6… (More)
