Abstract: Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors are among the few categories of drugs whose indications are raidly expanding. In addition to their know benefits in patients with hypertension and those with heart failure, ACE inhibitors have the reputation of making patients feel better. Some possible reasons for that response, and some speculative mechanisms linking hypertension, obesity, and diabetes, are associated with the far-reaching systemic and local tissue effects of angio tensin II. There is no clear evidence that any ACE inhibitor is superior to the others; but the manufacturers have chosen to study different aspects of ACE inhibition in order to establish market niches.
