Isotonic fluid administration is further discouraged in hyponatraemic patients with inappropriate arginine vasopressin secretion.
The study, a collaboration between scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies and the University of Utah, found that people with WS flushed with the hormones oxytocin and arginine vasopressin (AVP) when exposed to emotional triggers.
Plasma arginine vasopressin response to insulin induced hypoglycemia.
Respiratory and haemodynamic values were recorded before and during a continuous infusion of arginine vasopressin sufficient to double the mean arterial pressure.
Key agents in development are primarily focused on targeting cardiovascular neurohormonal pathways, such as arginine vasopressin antagonists (which include Otsuka's Tolvaptan) and renin-angiotensin aldosterone system modulators (which include Novartis's Aliskiren).
Cases of life-threatening hypotonic encephalopathy and fatal cerebral edema demonstrated euvolemia with non-osmotic secretion of arginine vasopressin (AVP), fulfilling the essential diagnostic criteria for the syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion (SIADH).
Arginine vasopressin (AVP) was extracted using previous methods (7) using an AVP Radioimmunoassay kit supplied from Diagnostic Systems Laboratories, Texas, USA.
