The angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) are a group of pharmaceuticals that are used primarily in treatment of hypertension and congestive heart failure, in some cases as the drugs of first choice. The renin-angiotensin system is activated in response to hypotension, decreased sodium concentration in the distal tubule, decreased blood volume and in renal sympathetic nerve stimulation. This study examines the effects of angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (Lisinopril) on blood pressure (BP) 131±2.4 and proteinuria 0.198±0.005 in Kurd hypertensive patients, mean arterial blood pressure and proteinuria excretion were measured weekly along the period of 12 weeks. Lisinopril significantly reduced mean arterial blood pressure, and attenuated proteinuria level in patients subjected to this study in lisinopril 10mg dose dependent manner (p<0.05, n=24). In conclusion, lisinopril is of beneficial of renoprotection and in lowering BP.
