Abstract:

Chronic exposure to an atmosphere containing 13 oxygen protects against development of renal hypertension in rats. The mechanism through which the rats are protected may involve the thyroid gland since certain criteria for assessment of thyroid function, using radioactive iodide, suggest depression of activity. Other physiologic mechanisms, brought into play as a result of hypoxia, may also contribute and need to be studied.
