The Effects of Converting Enzyme Inhibition

  • Thomas G. Coleman
Part of the Blood Pressure Control book series (BPCO, volume 1)

Abstract

Several compounds have been discovered or created that inhibit angiotensin converting enzyme and thereby dramatically slow the conversion of angiotensin I to angiotensin II. One of these, captopril, has been widely used as an experimental tool and is currently being evaluated for routine clinical use because it can be administered orally.
