In order to study cation transport in vivo the changes in plasma and red cell rubidium concentrations were measured following an oral load of rubidium chloride. Eight patients receiving short-term digoxin therapy, 10 patients with chronic renal failure and 22 patients with untreated essential hypertension were studied, and the findings were compared with those in healthy control subjects matched for age, sex, race, obesity index, and plasma and red cell potassium concentrations. In patients r...Expand abstract
