Plasma levels of nitric oxide and related vasoactive factors following long-term treatment with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor in patients with essential hypertension.

Abstract

Several mechanisms other than the inhibition of systemic and local formation of angiotensin II (Ang II) have been proposed to play a role in mediating the hypotensive effects of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. In the present study, we measured plasma levels of nitric oxide (NO) and the related vasoactive factors bradykinin, 6-keto… (More)
