The converting enzyme inhibitor HOE 498 was evaluated in 12 normotensive male volunteers aged 21 to 26. The efficacy of single 5, 10 or 20 mg oral doses in blocking the pressor response to exogenous angiotensin I was tested in 3 of the subjects. All 3 doses of HOE 498 reduced the pressor response to exogenous angiotensin I to below 50% of control within 1,5(More)
