For this reason the following study was undertaken to evaluate the clinical usefulness of this drug and its influence on renal hemodynamics in normal children and in children during the hypertensive phase of acute and chronic nephritis.These studies were being conducted at the same time that McCrory and Rapoport4 were investigating this agent.
