Synergistic vascular effects of dietary sodium supplementation and angiotensin II administration.

Abstract

The hypertensinogenic action of dietary sodium supplementation was investigated in angiotensin II (ANG II)-treated rats. We hypothesized that high-sodium diet would potentiate ANG II-induced vasoconstriction and hypertension, including the development of structural vascular changes, through synergistic action with ANG II in stimulating sympathetic activity… (More)
