Role of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system
and proinflammatory mediators in cardiovascular disease.
Thus, cats with adrenocortical tumors have very high plasma aldosterone activity and, in general, completely suppressed plasma renin activity, since the secretion is independent of the stimulation of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system
(JAVADI et al., 2005).

blockade therapy on incidence of contrast-induced nephropathy in patients with chronic kidney disease," Iranian Journal of Kidney Diseases, vol.
blockers constitute a major treatment modality for cardiovascular and renal diseases, and the use of ACEIs is very common among patients undergoing coronary angiography.

Nonetheless, the finding of a moderate reduction in serum aldosterone level indicates that the effects of vita min [D.sub.3] on the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system
(RAAS) in patients with heart failure warrants further study, including assessment of possible long-term clinical benefit.
The steroid hormone aldosterone, produced by the adrenal gland, is part of a renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system
that helps the body regulate blood pressure and sodium retention.

In addition, all renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system
medications can induce hyperkalemia.
