The Effect of Pitressin on Sodium Tolerance in Experimental Hypertension
Rats subjected to diverse hypertension-inducing procedures develop an abnormal sodium tolerance characterized by an accelerated rate of excretion of an administered load. Pitressin reverses this abnormality in sodium tolerance during the period corresponding to the delayed depressor phase of the response to the extract.
