Data alert

Lipids and RAS: Interactions that increase cardiovascular risk

Hypertension and hypercholesterolemia frequently coexist, and over the past decade, provocative data have emerged suggesting the existence of neurohormonal interactions between lipoproteins and the renin-angiotensin system (RAS). This data alert discusses selected recent studies that shed light on the potential mechanisms and clinical implications of these lipoprotein-RAS interactions.
