Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The effect of treatment with 9 alpha-fluorocortisol (9 alpha FF), a steroid which causes hypertension in sheep, was examined in sheep with ACTH-induced hypertension. ACTH treatment alone increased mean arterial pressure (MAP), plasma Na concentration, water intake and urine volume and decreased plasma K concentration. 9 alpha FF treatment, for 3 days during continuing ACTH administration, did not change blood pressure but increased heart rate, water intake and urine volume and decreased urinary K excretion. As 9 alpha FF did not cause a further increment in blood pressure in sheep with ACTH-induced hypertension it is possible that both ACTH and 9 alpha FF may produce hypertension by similar mechanisms.
