The transactions of the fourth Macy Conference on Factors Regulating Blood Pressure, held on Feb. 23 and 24, 1950, are presented in this publication. The conference was attended by prominent investigators in the field. The subjects discussed include anatomic considerations of hypertension, classification of hypertension, renal adjustments related to hypertension, endocrine factors related to hypertension, VEM and VDM (basoexcitor and vasodepressor material), renin, and pressor substances. These transactions are always interesting and are of considerable value not only to those engaged in studying blood vessel function but also to clinicians.
