The courting among angiotensin II and high blood pressure used to be demonstrated in 1898 whilst angiotensin II used to be proven to modulate systemic blood strain. Over the intervening a long time, a whole characterization of the renin-angiotensin method (RAS) has been accomplished, and our knowing of its biochemistry and body structure has ended in the directed improvement of brokers such ·as ACE inhibitors and receptor antagonists in a position to controlling high blood pressure. extra lately, it used to be proven that angiotensin II is secreted inside of definite tissues and that those tissue-specific platforms function independently of the systemic RAS. the radical idea that angiotensin II regulates a few cardiovascular techniques which are unrelated to blood strain has renewed the curiosity of either easy and medical scientists in angiotensin II. The organization among angiotensin II and cardiac progress, particularly, has indicated that remedies at the moment in use for high blood pressure could have direct program to the remedy of middle failure. The Manitoba Cardiovascular discussion board on Angiotensin Receptor Blockade in Winnipeg used to be convened October 18-20, 1996 to envision the medical and uncomplicated features of angiotensin receptor biology as they follow to high blood pressure and middle failure. furthermore, the aptitude remedy of those stipulations utilizing particular angio­ tensin receptor antagonists was once addressed in the context in their speedy healing program and destiny potential.

This possibility is strongly supported by a recent study [23] on the relationship between AGT genotype and the renovascular response to Ang II in caucasians. Plasma AGT did not vary with genotype, but renal vascular responsiveness did. Specifically, normal subjects and patients with hypertension who are homozygous for threonine at codon-235(TT) showed a blunted renovascular response to Ang II despite a high salt diet, which is indicative of nonmodulation. This polymorphism can account for the unusual responses to ACE inhibitors and calcium channel blocking agents in the normotensive offspring described above.
