We evaluated the effects of angiotensin II (Ang II) blockers, losartan, an Ang II receptor blocker, and enalapril, an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor, on the development of autoimmune thyroiditis in nonobese diabetic (NOD) mice, an animal model of Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT). Mice were assigned into three groups, untreated, losartan-treated (30 mg… CONTINUE READING
