ACE Inhibitor versus an Angiotensin Receptor Blocker by Kamal S. Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Sat 06 Oct 2012 12:40pm Ever since I was diagnosed with Left Ventricular Hypertorphy secondary to my kidney disease, I was put on Carvedilol (6.25 mg twice daily) and Ramipril (5 mg once daily). My Blood Pressure was controlled really very well. My normal BP currently is between 90/60 to 100/70. Many dialysis technicians are worried about my low BP, especially those w ... Read on »
Angiotensin-converting enzyme in systemic sclerosis: from endothelial injury to a genetic polymorphism. by Jan Posted Fri 11 Sep 2009 4:55pm By Guiducci S. and Colleague The main pathologic hallmark of systemic sclerosis (SSc) is endothelial derangement; the pathologic alterations of the vessel wall in SSc are strikingly similar to the modification detected in the atherosclerotic lesions, and it is now evident that SSc is also characterized by accelerated macrovascular disease. ...

Basic Review: The Renin-Angiotensin-Aldosterone Axis by Matt S. Posted Thu 27 Aug 2009 12:00am One of the coolest aspects of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) is that it involves multiple organ systems: the liver, lung, adrenal gland, kidney, and vasculature are all prominently involved. It never hurts to review basic physiologic principles, right? Listed are the three main components of the RAAS and their main mechan ... Read on »
A trap for angiotensin type 1 receptors by Matt S. Posted Sat 13 Mar 2010 12:00am The renin-angiotensin system is powerful regulator of blood pressure homeostasis. An article published in the March 24 issue of JASN highlights an emerging area of research into the modulation of AT1 receptors on different tissues. The majority of well-known angiotensin II actions are mediated via AT1 receptor stimulation, and angiotensin ... Read on »
Key to angiotensin formation solved? Preeclampsia linked to oxidative stress by Matt S. Posted Fri 08 Oct 2010 1:00am Researchers from the UK published a new and exciting article exploring one of the fundamental mechanisms of blood pressure regulation by the renin-angiotensin-system (RAS). This research was, per the authors, 20 years in the making and was fittingly published this week in Nature . The RAS is a multi-enzymatic system with multiple layers of con ... Read on »
