Inter-relationship of sympathetic nervous system and renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system in three renin subgroups of borderline and persistent essential hypertension

Plasma renin activity (PRA), dopamine beta-hydroxylase (DBH) activity, and plasma aldosterone concentration were determined in 51 patients categorized as borderline or persistent hypertensives and as high, normal, or low renin. Basal DBH activity correlated with diastolic blood pressure in borderline but not in persistent hypertensives. In borderline patients with normal or high renin activity standing plus furosemide caused a marked rise in diastolic blood pressure but little change in systolic and increased PRA and DBA. In contrast this stimulation procedure depressed both systolic and diastolic blood pressure and resulted in blunted PRA and DBH responses in the low renin borderline and the three groups of persistent hypertensives. After dietary sodium restriction, the decrease in systolic blood pressure correlated with the decrease in urinary sodium excretion in persistent, but not in the borderline patients. The data suggest that both borderline an persistent hypertensive patients respond to volume depletion with an increase in sympathetic and renin activity, and the increase of these two vasoconstrictive systems is greater in borderline hypertensives.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
