    Abstract

    In chronic heart failure there is gradual reactivation of vascular tissue angiotensin I (AI) to angiotensin II (AII) conversion over time in patients taking chronic ACE inhibitor therapy. However, it remains unknown whether the same overall phenomenon occurs in other patients taking chronic ACE inhibitor therapy, such as patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
