  • The aim of this study was to evaluate the acute effects of transdermal nitroglycerin on the sympathetic and renin-angiotensin-aldosterone systems activity, in a group of patients with stable exercise induced angina pectoris. Eighteen outpatients (15M, 3F, age range 47-65 years) were included in this double-blind, randomized, crossover trial comparing the antianginal effects of a transdermal system delivering 20 mg.day-1 of nitroglycerin to an identical placebo. Plasma renin activity, plasma… CONTINUE READING
