Ludwig Heinrich von Nicolay (1737-1820) is nearly unknown in our time. but on the shut of the eighteenth century he loved a substantial attractiveness as a German poet of the French neo-classical orientation. He used to be esteemed as instruct to the Russian Emperor Paul I, as Russian country Counciller, and as President of the Russian Imperial Academy of Sciences.

Regardless of the arrival of insulin for medical use in 1922, our skill to regulate hypergly­ cemia and stop the longer term sequelae ofthe ailment continues to be constrained. hence normalization of the milieu interieur with physiologic responses of insulin and metabolites continues to be an elusive yet severely very important aim.

Recent studies, in fact, have demonstrated that thromboxane A2 (TxA 2) may play an important role in increasing the vascular resistance in this model of ARF [l83, l84}. Thus, the kidneys of rabbits treated with subcutaneous glycerol exhibited, 24 hours after the injection, an increased capacity to produce TxA2 [l83}' These findings have suggested a possible alteration in the relative proportion of vasodilating and vasoconstricting PGs in glycerolinduced ARF in rabbits with a predominance of vasoconstrictor substances; hence, the protective effect observed with i.

9% saline) has been shown not to protect rats against glycerolinduced ARF, although it decreased BUN by increasing urea clearance; inulin clearance was, in fact, severely reduced 24 and 48 hours after glycerol injection [155}. b. Immunization with antibodies against renin or All [168, l73} and the use of converting enzyme inhibitors or All blockers [175-l77} have failed to protect the rats against the renal damage by glycerol. c. If intrarenal RAS plays an important role in the development of glycerol-induced ARF, a kidney with high renin content is expected to be more susceptible to the development of ARF by glycerol.

Long-term (five to six weeks) sodium depletion induced a significant increase in renal cortical renin content in rats; yet the animals were protected against UN- or HgClrinduced ARF by short-term (48 hours) increase in NaC 1 intake and/or excretion [228}. In two-kidney Goldblatt rats, the ARF due to either arterial occlusion [127} or UN [127}, or HgCl 2 [232}, or glycerol [178} was equal in severity in both kidneys despite different degrees of renal cortical renin content. The increased solute excretion induced in rats by pretreatment with diuretics clearly protected the animals against HgClrinduced ARF, although no change in renal renin content had occurred [233}.
