Sammanfattning : The kidney and the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) are vital regulators of blood pressure and salt-water balance. In order to appropriately regulate circulatory homeostasis, the kidney must undergo normal development, in which the RAS plays a crucial role. LÄS MER
2. The Renin Angiotensin System in the Human Esophageal Mucosa − expression, actions and potential involvement in reflux disease
Sammanfattning : The renin angiotensin system (RAS) is a classical endocrine system, regulating body fluid balance and blood circulation. Recent research has shown that the system is being also locally expressed and active in several organs and tissues. LÄS MER
3. Pharmacogenetic Studies of Antihypertensive Treatment : With Special Reference to the Renin-Angiotensin-Aldosterone System
Sammanfattning : Hypertension is common and constitutes an increased risk of morbidity and mortality of cardiovascular disease. Antihypertensive treatment will reduce this risk; the individual patient's response to treatment, however, is difficult to predict. LÄS MER
4. The kallikrein-kinin system in primary hypertension : dynamics of circulating components of the kallikrein-kinin system in relation to the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system
Sammanfattning : Kinins are potent vasodilatory and blood pressure lowering peptides, with additional effects on renal handling of electrolytes and water. The kallikrein-kinin system consists of two separate entities, one confined to the circulation and the other to both tissues and the circulation. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The endocrine renin-angiotensin system (RAS) is important in the regulation of extracellular fluid volume and systemic blood pressure in strenuous conditions such as hypovolemia. Also present locally in peripheral tissues, all components of RAS are expressed and have been shown to modulate development, cell growth and inflammation. LÄS MER
