SummaryIn female rats, temporary unilateral ligation of the ureter (by placing part of it into a cranio-caudal slit of the psoas muscle) protects against mercuric chloride-induced nephrocalcinosis (on the side of the obstruction) and prevents mortality.ZusammenfassungBei weiblichen Ratten verhindert die temporäre Unterbindung des Ureters die Entwicklung einer Quecksilberchlorid-induzierten Nephrocalcinose.

Medullary plasma flow and intravascular leukocyte accumulation in acute renal failure.

It is suggested that the nucleated cells in the vasa recta are not produced within the kidney, but are brought there via the circulating blood, unrelated to a reduction in medullary blood flow.

Inhibition by hypophysectomy of nephrocalcinosis produced by mercuric chloride.

In rats, the nephrocalcinosis and mortality produced by an intravenous injection of mercuric chloride were markedly diminished by hypophysectomy performed 7 days earlier. Triamcinolone in combination

Mercury Poisoning: Prevention by Spironolactone

The renal tubular necrosis and calcification as well as the mortality induced by mercuric chloride in the rat are readily prevented by prior treatment with well-tolerated amounts of spironolactone.

The postulation that the increase in angiotensinogen is a result presumably of the removal of a source of renin by nephrectomy would not be applied to the cases of mercuric chloride intoxication and bilateral ureteral ligation.

The effect of sodium maleate on the renal deposition and excretion of mercury.

Current work has cast doubt on the widely accepted theory that mercury is first filtered by the glomerulus and then taken up by the tubular cells, and shown that more than 99% of the mercury in the plasma is not ultrafiltrable and that ligation of the ureter does not influence the rate of accumulation in the kidney.

The data indicate that the reduction in filtration pressure is the sole factor responsible for excretory failure after ureteral obstruction and that this lesion is characterized by an increase in preglomerular arteriolar resistance.

The metabolism of mercury by the rat has been studied following intravenous or intramuscular injection, using Hg/sup 203/ as a tracer, and the excretion pattern reflects the organ distribution to some extent.

A discussion of predominantly theoretical aspects of metal poisoning is presented and the responses of biological systems to heavy metals were considered in terms of inferences that could be made concerning the site of the original chemical insult.
