Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition: “This book disseminates new findings about the local renin-angiotensin aldosterone system (RAAS) in the cardiovascular system and the kidneys … . This is a great resource for anyone doing research into any cell or tissue that is regulated or potentially regulated by RAAS. … Students beginning careers in research in this field will find this to be a great account of current research … . As a gastrointestinal physiologist with a long-time interest in hormonal regulation of cell function, I found this book intriguing.” (David L. Osborne, Doody’s Review Service, June, 2010)
