ACE Inhibitors News and Research

RSS
ACE inhibitors act to reduce hypertension by interfering with the conversion of angiotensin I to artery-constricting angiotensin II. Blocking the production of angiotensin II results in arterial vasodilation and an accompanying reduction in blood pressure. ACE inhibitors currently are recommended as first-line therapy for hypertension in certain patient populations, because of their safety and efficacy.
