Recruitment status was Not yet recruiting
This feasibility study is designed to examine modulation of the relative activities of ACE and ACE2 in diabetic patients following treatment with the angiotensin type 1 receptor (AT1R) antagonist, Candesartan.
This study will provide a closer insight to the possible involvement of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS)-related enzymatic components in development or attenuation of vascular pathogenesis.
