Data obtained from 65 hypertensive patients showed a clear-cut positive correlation between peripheral plasma renin activity and the pressor response to exogenous angiotensin II (r =+0.75). For the various causes of hypertension, the mean values of plasma renin concentration were found to correspond closely to the mean values of the angiotensin pressor dose. In individual cases, however, the pressor dose of angiotensin was not found to be a reliable gauge of peripheral venous renin activity.It… CONTINUE READING
