In order to investigate the role of plasma angiotensin I (pAI) converting enzyme on the activity of the renin-angiotensin system, we measured plasma renin activity (PRA), plasma angiotensin II (pAII), and plasma angiotensin I converting enzyme (pACE) activity in fourteen patients with essential hypertension before and after two hours of ambulation combined with intravenous furosemide administration. Significant increases were observed in the values of PRA (p less than 0.005), pAII (p less than… CONTINUE READING
