Authors survey the cyto-biological effect of extra-renal renin-angiotensin system on the basis of literature data and of their own previous results. It is established that renin and angiotensins in extra-renal localisation take part mainly in inflammatory process. In this respect, one of the important target cell group of angiotensin system is the certain elements of mononuclear phagocyte system, on which angiotensin II has cytokine-like effect. Renin-angiotensins detected by authors in non-activated alveolar mono-phages and monocytes raise the possibility, that these cells also have independent, intra-cellular regulating renin-angiotensin.
