Factors contributing to the maintenance of resting arterial blood pressure in sham-operated and adrenalectomized rats were assessed 14 weeks after operation; some animals were given 1% NaCl to drink throughout, and some animals were given sodium-free water instead of 1% NaCl for 2 days before the experiment. Inhibition of the renin-angiotensin (ANG) system (with captopril) and of the cardiovascular actions of vasopressin [with 1-(beta-mercapto-beta, beta-cyclopentamethylenepropionic acid),8-D… Expand

Pressor responses in rats following intravenous dynorphin A(1–13) administration are blocked by AVP-V1 receptor antagonism
TLDR
The results indicate that the pressor responses of rats given intravenous dynorphin A(1-13) involve the interaction of AVP-V1 receptors and suggest a functional interaction of these two neuropeptides in the modulation of vascular tone. Expand
The Role of Vasopressin in Blood Pressure Maintenance in Diabetic Orthostatic Hypotension
TLDR
It is concluded that vasopressin plays an important role in preventing or minimizing orthostatic hypotension in diabetic patients, and its pressor contribution is crucial in those with autonomic insufficiency and impaired renin and sympathetic responses, in whom the pressor effectiveness of vasoppressin is greatly enhanced.

Adrenal and Vascular Tyrosine Hydroxylase Activity in Goldblatt Hypertension
TLDR
The in vitro activity of tyrosine hydroxylase provides a measure of catecholamine synthesis and serves as a biochemical index of activity of noradrenergic neurons and the adrenal medulla, indicating that the adrenAL medulla contributes to the patbophysioJogy of both 1K1C and 2K2C forms of hypertension.

Carotid baroreceptor stimulation
TLDR
Investigations in heart failure patients showed symptomatic improvements; however, echocardiography measurements did not change significantly, indicating that data from properly controlled trials is required before introducing electrical carotid sinus stimulation in clinical routine. Expand
Relationships of matrix metalloproteinases and their inhibitors to cartilage proteoglycan and collagen turnover and inflammation as revealed by analyses of synovial fluids from patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
TLDR
The observations provide new insights into the complex changes in cartilage turnover and PMN influx in RA joints and suggest that HA and PMNs may be involved in the control of proteolysis and cartilage proteoglycan assembly. Expand
