About this book


From molecular biology to clinical applications of selective receptor blockade, the present volume compiles the latest advances of this emerging field. Of particular importance is the attention given to the newly discovered AT2 receptors, and the physiology and pathophysiology of angiotensin receptor subtypes. The book will provide clinicians treating cardiovascular disease and hypertension with a clearer understanding of this therapeutically important and complicated hormone.
