The effect of chronic low- and high-dose treatment with the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor ramipril (0.01 and 1 mg/kg per day) on the development of hypertension and left ventricular hypertrophy as well as on functional and biochemical alterations of the heart was studied in stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats treated prenatally and(More)
Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors can improve cardiac function independent of their blood pressure (BP)-lowering actions. We investigated the effect of chronic subantihypertensive ACE inhibitor treatment on functional and biochemical cardiac parameters in stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRSP). Animals were treated in utero and(More)
It is now well accepted that treatment of hypertension must extend beyond the mere control of blood pressure. Among the objectives "beyond blood pressure control" is the remodeling of resistance and compliance vessels that have usually undergone a process of hypertrophy and/or hyperplasia. Salutary vascular remodeling by antihypertensive treatment not only(More)
We investigated functional changes in aortic preparations of spontaneously hypertensive rats treated in utero and subsequently up to 20 weeks of age with the angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors ramipril (0.01 and 1 mg/kg per day) and perindopril (0.01 mg/kg per day). Early-onset treatment with the high dose of ramipril inhibited aortic ACE(More)
