The Renin-Angiotensin-Aldosterone System (RAAS) plays a major role in the regulation of cardiovascular functions, water and electrolytic balance, and hormonal responses. We perform a review of the literature, aiming at providing the current concepts regarding the angiotensin interaction with the immune system in the brain and the related implications for cardiovascular and neuroendocrine responses.

Abstract

The Renin-Angiotensin-Aldosterone System (RAAS) plays a major role in the regulation of cardiovascular functions, water and electrolytic balance, and hormonal responses. We perform a review of the literature, aiming at providing the current concepts regarding the angiotensin interaction with the immune system in the brain and the related implications for cardiovascular and neuroendocrine responses.
