    Effect
    of Bradykinin-Receptor Blockade on the Response to Angiotensin-converting-Enzyme
    Inhibitor in Normotensive and Hypertensive subjects
    .

    N
    Engl J Med 339: 1285-1292, 1998.

     


    Bradykinin
    was found to contribute substantially to the hypotensive and
    endocrine effects of short-term ACE inhibition.
    These effects occurred in both normotensive and hypertensive
    participants during salt depletion. The
    co-administration of icatibant decreased the average response of
    blood pressure to captopril by 53%.
