The authors examined dynamically the arterial pressure and plasma activity of 11-hydroxycorticosteroids in two groups of rats with pure hypertension and with hypertension on the background of beta-adrenergic activity. There was an elevation of arterial pressure in both groups, less manifested in the rats, treated with beta blocker. The values after six months were equally high in both groups. The content of 11-hydroxycorticosteroids was increased with a maximum at the sixth month. The authors make an inference that beta blocker-obsidan lowers blood pressure, but does not affect the level of 11-hydroxycorticosteroidids in plasma.
