The aim of this article is to study the efficiency of an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE)-inhibitory peptide LAP on the blood pressure (BP) and the vascular remodeling in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs). Ten-week-old male SHRs were divided into four groups with 10 animals in each group and treated for 2 months: blank, pseudo-experimental (NS), enalapril (ENA), and LAP. The alterations of BP, plasma angiotensin II (AngII) levels, and morphological changes of left common carotid artery… CONTINUE READING
