Puzzled and struck by this interesting observation, I took a few guesses and decided to look at renin expression in the kidney, simply because of the prominent role of the renin-angiotensin system in the regulation of the fluid and salt balance.
The importance of the renin-angiotensin system in cardiovascular disease.
Thirteen trials with 91,561 participants, meeting inclusion criteria, compared beta-blockers with placebo (4 trials; n=23,613), diuretics (5 trials; n=18,241), calcium-channel blockers (4 trials; n=44,825), and renin-angiotensin system inhibitors (3 trials; n=10,828).

This section of the report also provides market attractiveness analysis, by geography and market share analysis by key players, thus presenting a thorough analysis of the overall competitive scenario in the global cardiovascular drugs market.Based on drug class the global cardiovascular drugs market is segmented into renin-angiotensin system blockers, beta blockers, diuretics, anti-clotting agents (anti-coagulants and platelet aggregation inhibitors), antihyperlipidemics, other antihypertensive, calcium channel blockers and others.
