There exist several experimental methods of producing persistent arterial hypertension: (1) section of the cardio-aortic and carotid sinus "moderator nerves"1-3; (2) impairment of the cerebral blood flow through either intracranial injection of kaolin suspension4 or ligation of most of the vessels which supply the brain circulation5; (3) impairment of the renal blood flow6, 7; (4) repeated intramuscular injections of "hypertonin," which is obtained through ultra-filtration of the serum of hypertensive patients,8 and of various hormonal sterols.165
Elevation of blood pressure following section of the moderator nerves, although a phenomenon of outstanding theoretical interest, apparently has no bearing upon
