It is well established that renin-angiotensin system blockers exert NO/prostacyclin-dependent antithrombotic effects. Because some beneficial effects of these drugs are mediated by angiotensin (Ang)-(1-7), in the present study we examined if their antithrombotic action could be mediated by Ang-(1-7). Intravenous infusion of Ang-(1-7) (1, 10, or 100 pmol/kg(More)
In previous studies, we have shown that losartan possesses nitric oxide-dependent antithrombotic properties in various models of hypertension in rats. It was demonstrated that stimulation of AT2-receptors plays an important role in the pharmacological effects of AT1-receptor antagonists. Thus, in this study, we examine the participation of AT2-receptors in(More)
