the connection among angiotensin II and high blood pressure used to be confirmed in 1898 whilst angiotensin II used to be proven to modulate systemic blood strain. Over the intervening many years, a whole characterization of the renin-angiotensin process (RAS) has been accomplished, and our realizing of its biochemistry and body structure has resulted in the directed improvement of brokers such ·as ACE inhibitors and receptor antagonists in a position to controlling high blood pressure. extra lately, it was once proven that angiotensin II is secreted inside of definite tissues and that those tissue-specific platforms function independently of the systemic RAS. the unconventional idea that angiotensin II regulates a couple of cardiovascular procedures which are unrelated to blood strain has renewed the curiosity of either uncomplicated and scientific scientists in angiotensin II. The organization among angiotensin II and cardiac development, particularly, has indicated that treatments at present in use for high blood pressure can have direct program to the therapy of center failure. The Manitoba Cardiovascular discussion board on Angiotensin Receptor Blockade in Winnipeg was once convened October 18-20, 1996 to check the scientific and uncomplicated points of angiotensin receptor biology as they follow to high blood pressure and center failure. furthermore, the capability therapy of those stipulations utilizing particular angio­ tensin receptor antagonists used to be addressed in the context in their rapid healing software and destiny potential.
