Plasma atrial natriuretic factor (ANF), blood pressure, age, plasma renin activity and Creatinine were measured in 50 normal volunteers, 141 essential hypertensives, 35 patients with chronic renal failure who had never been dialysed and 27 patients with end-stage renal failure on constant haemodialysis. Plasma ANF was correlated positively with age in the normal group (r = 0.52, P <0.01) and with blood pressure in the essential hypertensives (r = 0.50, P <0.001), and neg- atively with renin in the normal and end-stage renal failure patients (r = —0.47, r= —0.34; P
