The article presents abstracts from papers that were published in the 1973 issue of the journal "Kidney International." The paper "Renin and Aldosterone in Chronic Renal Failure With Hypertension," was presented by H. Armbruster, K. Zaruha, W. Vetter, R. Beckerhoff and H. Siegenthaler. The researchers indicated that the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system may participate in the pathogenesis of hypertension in CRF. The paper "Micropuncture Studies of Compensatory Adaptation in rats," was presented by J. Diezi, P. Michoud and Y. Arslan.
