    We hypothesized that chronic specific endothelin-A (ET-A) receptor blockade therapy would reverse renal dysfunction and injury in advanced experimental renovascular disease. To test this, unilateral renovascular disease was induced in 19 pigs, and after 6 weeks, single-kidney hemodynamics and...

    Summary This study examines endothelin-induced modulation of extracellular matrix synthesis and remodeling by fibroblasts, and its potential role in the pathogenesis of systemic sclerosis (scleroderma). Endothelin-1 promoted fibroblast synthesis of collagen types I and III, but not fibronectin,...

    Objectives: Endothelin A (ETA) receptor blockade started early after myocardial infarction (MI) promotes adverse left ventricular (LV) dilatation. We tested the hypothesis that inhibition of ETA receptors during the early phase of healing affects collagen synthesis and accumulation, and...

    Angiotensin II blockade with sarcosine 1-alanine 8-angiotensin II (saralasin, P-113) was done in 40 studies of 20 hypertensive patients. Eleven of 12 patients with a depressor response to angiotensin II blockade had significant renovascular or renal disease, and nine of 10 had renal vein renin...
