Converting Enzyme Inhibitor and Saralasin Infusion in Rats Evidence for an Additional Vasodepressor Property of Converting Enzyme Inhibitor

  • Published 2005


Converting enzyme inhibitor (CEI) produced a greater fall in blood pressure (BP) than the competitive antagonist of angiotensin II, sarcosine-alanine angiotensin II (saralasin), when administered to saltdepleted rats; there was no difference in BP response in salt-loaded rats. Thus, two widely used methods of inhibiting the renin-angiotensin system give… (More)
