The effects of two analogues of arginine-vasopressin (ornithine-vasopressin and desamino-D-arginine-vasopressin) on kidney function in sheep.

Abstract

The effects of intravenous infusion of ornithine-vasopressin (OVP) and desamino-D-arginine-vasopressin (dDAVP) were studied in normal and hydrated Merino sheep. In normal sheep, OVP resulted in a diuresis, increased urinary sodium and potassium excretion, and a fall in the plasma potassium concentration. Renal plasma flow remained constant but glomerular… (More)
