Studies on the Renal Humoral Mechanism of Chronic Experimental Hypertension
The renin content of the kidneys from chronic renal hypertensive dogs rises when the kidneys are transplanted to the neck of a normotensive nephrectomized animal. This elevation precedes and accompanies the elevation of the blood pressure of the recipient. This type of experiment does not allow one to draw conclusions concerning the humoral mechanism of chronic renal hypertension.
