We determined the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) insertion/deletion genotype in 209 hypertensive individuals and in 100 matched normotensive controls. A significant association was detected between hypertension and the deletion/deletion (D/D) genotype of the ACE gene when the relation was adjusted for age, sex, and body mass index.
