Differential angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibition in brain after oral administration of perindopril demonstrated by quantitative in vitro autoradiography.


To help elucidate potential sites for the central actions of a new angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, perindopril, ACE levels were measured in the brain of Sprague-Dawley rats by quantitative in vitro autoradiography after administration of the drug. Following acute oral administration of 1 mg/kg perindopril, ACE in the two circumventricular… (More)
