Abstract

Plasma kinins are a family of peptides which play an important role in a variety of pathophysiological conditions. As a consequence of the progress in the area of kinin receptors, specific kinin receptor antagonists will be available in near future in order to provide more selective therapeutic modalities for the treatment of diseases such as asthma, cardiovascular diseases, inflammation, pain, etc.
