Renin-Angiotensin-Aldosterone System Virtual Collection

The Renin-Angiotensin-Aldosterone System (RAAS) is not only central to blood pressure control but, combined with its pleotropic effects, contributes to the cardiovascular consequences of hypertension. Level of RAAS activity provides a mechanistic guide to selection of antihypertensive therapy, detects patients at increased cardiovascular risk, and identifies sodium/volume depletion.

This free collection from American Journal of Hypertension is intended to reflect this variety and its clinical relevance, and will be supplemented at regular intervals with the latest research, in order to provide those in the field with an up-to-date, authoritative, and accessible resource on the topic.
