Beyond blood pressure: endothelial protection against hypercholesterolemia by angiotensin II type-1 receptor blockade.

Abstract

Hypercholesterolemia and an activated renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system are well-established independent cardiovascular risk factors. Several lines of evidence support an important role of modified LDLs and angiotensin II in the development and progression of atherosclerosis. Angiotensin II is not only a potent vasoconstrictor, but it also promotes… (More)
