INTRODUCTION The relationship between intestinal inflammation and circulating components of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) is poorly understood. MATERIALS AND METHODS Demographic and clinical data were obtained from healthy controls and patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Plasma concentrations of the classical RAS components (angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) and angiotensin II (Ang II)) and alternative RAS components (ACE2 and angiotensin (1-7) (Ang (1-7))) were analysed by… CONTINUE READING
