AIMS The aim of the study was to assess the incidence and clinical implications of increased plasma angiotensin II despite chronic ACE inhibitor therapy in patients with heart failure. METHODS AND RESULTS The studied population consisted of 70 patients (mean age 59+/-9 years). Plasma renin activity and plasma concentration of aldosterone, norepinephrine, atrial natriuretic peptide, angiotensin II, tumour necrosis factor, interleukin-6 and interleukin-1B were assessed at 6 months of ACE… CONTINUE READING
