Injected S. typhosa endotoxin produces a characteristic diphasic pressor response in the renal vascular bed. There is an immediate transient mild rise in pressure followed by a more intense and prolonged rise which subsequently returns toward or to the pre-injection level. Radiating S. typhosa endotoxin at 10.40 Mcsec modified the above pressor response pattern. The first pressor response was enhanced and the second remained permanently sustained, i. e., there was no return toward the preinjection pressure level. Radiating endotoxin at 13.34 Mcsec enhanced the first pressor response-pattern but did not alter the second pressor response-pattern.
