Possible role of new pressor protein in hypertensive anephric hemodialysis patients

Abstract

Unexplained hypertension was observed in three anephric children on hemodialysis. We investigated the possible involvement of a novel hypertensive extra-renal enzyme new pressor protein (NPP), related to coagulation β-FXIIa. Currently, NPP activity can only be determined by a rat bioassay model. On study day 1, pre dialysis, patients 1, 2, and 3 were… (More)
