Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and angiotensin receptor blockers each reduce proteinuria and blood pressure. Several studies have compared the antiproteinuric and antihypertensive effects of combination therapy with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and angiotensin receptor blockers with those of therapy with either drug class alone. This article reviews those trials as well as evidence suggesting a mechanism for the benefits observed with combination therapy.
