Non-Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (NIDDM) and Angiotensin Converting Enzyme 2 (ACE2): Diabetic Patients Treated With Antihypertensive Drugs
Recruitment status was: Not yet recruiting
This feasibility study is designed to examine modulation of the relative activities of ACE and ACE2 in diabetic patients following treatment with the angiotensin type 1 receptor (AT1R) antagonist, Candesartan.
This study will provide a closer insight to the possible involvement of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS)-related enzymatic components in development or attenuation of vascular pathogenesis.
