The renal haemodynamic effects and renin-angiotensin II response io calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) infusion were assessed in 16 patients with moderate hypertension and renal insufficiency. CGRP lowered the systemic mean blood pressure by 13% and increased the heart rate by 25%; the glomerular filtration rate rose from 56 +/- 11 ml/min to 71 +/- 8 ml/min (p < 0.005), the renal plasma flow decreased from 369 +/- 19 ml/min to 342 +/- 25 ml/min (p < 0.002) and the filtration fraction increased from 15 +/- 0.2% to 20 +/- 0.2%. Plasma renin activity rose stepwise during the CGRP infusion from 1.28 +/- 0.5 ng/ml/h to 1.66 +/- 0.4 and 1.89 +/- 0.4 ng/ml/h (p < 0.001). Angiotensin II showed a marked increase after 10 min of infusion (91.6 +/- 47.00 pg/ml) (control value 6.01 +/- 3.09 pg/ml) and at the end (28.63 +/- 16.00 pg/ml) (p < 0.001). CGRP exerts an apparently favourable effect on renal function of patients with renal insufficiency, but the observed increase of glomerular filtration rate is obtained by an increase of intraglomerular pressure secondary to angiotensin II production.

Abstract

The renal haemodynamic effects and renin-angiotensin II response io calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) infusion were assessed in 16 patients with moderate hypertension and renal insufficiency. CGRP lowered the systemic mean blood pressure by 13% and increased the heart rate by 25%; the glomerular filtration rate rose from 56 +/- 11 ml/min to 71 +/- 8 ml/min (p < 0.005), the renal plasma flow decreased from 369 +/- 19 ml/min to 342 +/- 25 ml/min (p < 0.002) and the filtration fraction increased from 15 +/- 0.2% to 20 +/- 0.2%. Plasma renin activity rose stepwise during the CGRP infusion from 1.28 +/- 0.5 ng/ml/h to 1.66 +/- 0.4 and 1.89 +/- 0.4 ng/ml/h (p < 0.001). Angiotensin II showed a marked increase after 10 min of infusion (91.6 +/- 47.00 pg/ml) (control value 6.01 +/- 3.09 pg/ml) and at the end (28.63 +/- 16.00 pg/ml) (p < 0.001). CGRP exerts an apparently favourable effect on renal function of patients with renal insufficiency, but the observed increase of glomerular filtration rate is obtained by an increase of intraglomerular pressure secondary to angiotensin II production.
