The effect of metoclopramide and dopamine on plasma aldosterone concentration in normal man and rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta): a new model to study dopamine control of aldosterone secretion.

Abstract

Metoclopramide, a dopamine receptor antagonist, increases plasma aldosterone concentration in man, suggesting that dopamine regulates the secretion of aldosterone. In the current study, we administered metoclopramide to rhesus monkeys and normal subjects and compared the time-course and dose-response characteristics of plasma aldosterone. We also examined… (More)
