The article discusses whether angiotensin-receptor blockers (ARBs) reduce proteinuria more than placebo, other antihypertensive drugs, or their combinations, in patients with renal disease. Research compared ARBs with placebo, angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE-Is), or other antihypertensive drugs in patients with renal disease and microalbuminuria or proteinuria. It is concluded that ARBs and ACE-Is do not differ for reducing proteinuria.
