Circulating Renin Angiotensin System in Childhood Chronic Renal Failure: Marked Increase of Angiotensin-(1–7) in End-Stage Renal Disease

Abstract

The aim of the present study was to evaluate plasma renin activity (PRA) and Angiotensin (Ang) levels [Ang I, Ang II and Ang-(1–7)] to examine the circulating Renin-Angiotensin System (RAS) in renal disease among children with different forms and stages of chronic renal failure (CRF). Subjects were divided as follows: 32 normotensive healthy subjects, 23… (More)
