  1. 1. Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme : Effects of Smoking and Other Risk Factors for Cardiovascular Diseases

    Författare :Liza Ljungberg; Karin Persson; Rolf Andersson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the most common cause of death in Western countries. Smoking, hypertension, diabetes mellitus and hypercholesterolemia are considered as major risk factors. However, the underlying mechanisms by which these factors cause CVDs are not entirely clear.

  2. 2. Pharmacological interactions between angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, bradykinin and nitric oxide

    Författare :Karin Persson; Karl-Erik Andersson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :angiotensin-converting enzyme; angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors; atherosclerosis; bradykinin; endothelium; in vitro; nitric oxide; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : Cardiovascular diseases are a major cause of death in Western countries. Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) is as a key enzyme in the renin-angiotensin system involved in the regulation of blood pressure, and water and electrolyte balance in the body. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Angiotensin-converting enzyme in cardiovascular function and dysfunction

    Författare :Liza Ljungberg; Toste Länne; Karin Persson; Urban Alehagen; Thomas Kahan; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) is a key enzyme in the renin-angiotensin system, converting angiotensin I to the vasoactive peptide angiotensin II, and degrading bradykinin. Angiotensin II is a multifunctional peptide, acting on a number of different tissues. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibition and aspirin in congestive heart failure

    Författare :Tord Juhlin; Kardiologiska klinikens forskargrupp; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; clinical trial; ARBs; renal function; congestive heart failure; ischaemic heart disease; NSAIDs; ACE-inhibitors; aspirin; dose dependency; Cardiovascular system; Kardiovaskulära systemet;

    Sammanfattning : Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors act by decreasing production of angiotensin II and by potentiating the effects of bradykinin by inhibition of its breakdown. Bradykinin exerts part of its effects via vasodilating prostaglandins. Since the cyclooxygenase (COX)-inhibitors, e.g. LÄS MER
