    The present study has developed a new hypothesis for the regulation of renal hemodynamics based on the theory of a metabolic control of local blood flow. Adenosine has been proposed as the mediator of tubuloglomerular feedback. We have reported on the renal effects of adenosine, the renal tissue...

    Our results as well as those in the literature suggest that some hormone or combination of hormones, that are inhibited by somatostatin, is responsible for the hyperfiltration response following amino acid infusion/protein ingestion. Recently, we have infused amino acids with somatostatin and...

    To investigate if blood pressure reduction per se may prevent progressive renal disease in aging spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR), 15-month-old SHR were treated with the calcium antagonist felodipine, with the beta-blocker metoprolol or with the combination for six months. The combined...
