Our understanding of the physiology of the renin-angiotensin system has advanced remarkably in the last decade as a result of the development of several pharmacologic agents that effectively block components of this humoral cascade. The use of these antagonists has also advanced our understanding of the contribution of the renin-angiotensin system to the development and maintenance of two-kidney, one-clip renal vascular hypertension. These antagonists have contributed greatly to the… CONTINUE READING
