    Diuretic and vasodilator drugs alter the BP response to saralasin causing drug interactions. Saralasin-induced BP reduction is related directly to PRA and intravascular volume. Diuretic agents deplete intravascular volume and elevate PRA, enhancing saralasin hypotension. Vasodilating agents...

    Thirty-four patients, most with a low-renin "essential" hypertension, and seven normal subjects were placed on diuretic therapy for 4 to 5 weeks. In the normal subjects, infusion of a highly specific, competitive angiotensin 11 analogue (1-sar-8-ala-anglotensin II, saralasin) did not...

    The hydronephrotic rat kidney with intact circulation and innervation was split and spread out as a thin sheet in a tissue bath. The microvasculature was observed in vivo via television microscopy. We quantitated the effects of increasing concentrations (10-9 to 10-5 M) of saralasin (angiotensin...
