PDF


The present review confirms the existence of the so called ''ovarian -derived prorenin-angiotensin cascade''. It ialso describes the physiopathology of the system and,cosequently,its role in the genesis of phenomena concerning reproductive function such as ovulation,steroid synthesis and folliculogenesis. Moreover,the ''ovarian-derived prorenin-angiotensin cascade'' appears to play an important role in the aethipotogenesis of diseases such as ovarian tumours,ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome and ectopic pregnancy.
