The amelioration of experimental hypertension by histidine and ascorbic acid Sample, Robert Evans
Although hypertension has received a great deal of attention from many investigators in recent years, and although several different experimental approaches have been made to the problem, the etiology of most forms of the disease in man remain uncertain. The unusual problems facing the experimental worker in this field have had a lot to do with the slow progress that has been made. One of these problems consists of the inability, up to the present, of the worker to induce in an experimental animal, a state that is truly representative of hypertension in man. However, in spite of this and other obstacles, some progress has been made.
