Angiotensin-converting enzyme gene polymorphism is correlated to the progression of disease in patients with IgA nephropathy: a meta-analysis.

Abstract

Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) displays potent vasoconstrictive effects, attenuation of fibrinolysis, and platelet activation and aggregation. Recently it was mentioned that the insertion/deletion polymorphism of the ACE gene is associated with ESRD. The lengthy course of IgA Nephropathy (IgAN) and the possibility of good outcomes without therapy… (More)
