vvedenie preparatov-ingibitorov (, tormozyaschih konvertatsiyu) angiotenzina I v angiotenzin II

ACE is an acronym of angiotensin (or angiotonin) converting enzyme.

This enzyme cleaves the decapeptide angiotensin I (biologically inactive) to form active angiotensin II by angiotensin converting enzyme. Angiotensin II causes contraction of vascular smooth muscle and thus raises blood pressure and stimulates aldosterone release from the adrenal glands. Angiotensin is finally broken down by angiotensinases.

Elevations in angiotensin converting enzyme are seen in sarcoidosis, histplasmosis, alcoholic cirrhosis, asbestosis, berrylliosis, diabetes, Hodgkin's disease, hyperthyroidism, amyloidosis, primary biliary cirrhosis, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, pulmonary embolism, scleroderma, silicosis, tuberculosis, Gaucher's disease and leprosy. The normal values are 18 to 67 U/ml over 20 years of age (people under 20 have higher levels).

ACE procedure or ACE inhibition means administration of ACE-inhibiting agents (serum protease inhibitors) that block the formation of angiotensin II and decrease the degradation of bradykinin and other kinins. ACE inhibitors cause a decrease in sodium and water retension, a decrease in blood pressure, an improvement in cardiac output, and a decrease in heart size.

Finally, ACE procedure can be translated as "vvedenie preparatov-ingibitorov (, tormozyaschih, podavlyayuschih) konvertatsyyu angiotenzina I v aktivnuyu formu angiotenzina II.
