Abstract

We conclude that endothelial cell Ang II receptors play an important role in modulating transendothelial fluid flux. Activating the AT1 receptor increases L(p); the AT2 receptor may operate to oppose this action. Pharmacologic manipulation of Ang II receptors may be beneficial during shock states to limit intravascular fluid loss.
