- Implications physiopathologiques et cliniques des rÃ©cepteurs AT/AT de l'angiotensine II dans les pathologies mÃ©taboliques: HypercholestÃ©rolÃ©mie et diabÃ¨te. Strawn, W.B. // Drugs;2002 Special Edition 1, Vol. 62 Issue 1, p31
The coexistence of hypercholesterolaemia and diabetes dramatically and synergistically increases the risk of microvascular and macrovascular complications in patients. A single unifying mechanism of increased production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) by angiotensin II (Ang II) may serve as a...
