Effects of angiotensin II receptor blockers on renal handling of uric acid in rats.

Abstract

Elevated serum uric acid level has been associated with increased cardiovascular risk in hypertensive patients. Several angiotensin II receptor blockers exhibit differential effects on regulation of serum uric acid level in humans. We have demonstrated that some angiotensin II receptor blockers trans-stimulate the uptake of uric acid by human URAT1 and… (More)
