Angiotensin II Receptor Blockade: (Progress in Experimental by Naranjan S. Dhalla,Peter Zahradka,Ian M.C. Dixon,Robert E.

By Naranjan S. Dhalla,Peter Zahradka,Ian M.C. Dixon,Robert E. Beamish

the connection among angiotensin II and high blood pressure was once verified in 1898 whilst angiotensin II was once proven to modulate systemic blood strain. Over the intervening a long time, an entire characterization of the renin-angiotensin approach (RAS) has been completed, and our realizing of its biochemistry and body structure has ended in the directed improvement of brokers such ·as ACE inhibitors and receptor antagonists able to controlling high blood pressure. extra lately, it used to be proven that angiotensin II is secreted inside convinced tissues and that those tissue-specific structures function independently of the systemic RAS. the unconventional idea that angiotensin II regulates a couple of cardiovascular techniques which are unrelated to blood strain has renewed the curiosity of either uncomplicated and medical scientists in angiotensin II. The organization among angiotensin II and cardiac progress, particularly, has indicated that remedies at the moment in use for high blood pressure can have direct software to the remedy of middle failure. The Manitoba Cardiovascular discussion board on Angiotensin Receptor Blockade in Winnipeg used to be convened October 18-20, 1996 to ascertain the scientific and simple elements of angiotensin receptor biology as they observe to high blood pressure and center failure. furthermore, the capability therapy of those stipulations utilizing particular angio­ tensin receptor antagonists was once addressed in the context in their instant healing software and destiny potential.
