|Title:||Carboxyalkyl dipeptides and anti-hypertensive use thereof|
|Abstract:||The present invention relates to carboxyalkyl dipeptides which are inhibitors of angiotensin-converting enzyme and are useful as antihypertensive agents and in the treatment of congestive heart failure. The compounds of the present invention are compounds of the formulae ##STR1## and the pharmaceutically acceptable salts thereof, wherein R and R.sup.6 are the same or different and are hydroxy or lower alkoxy; R.sup.1 is benzyloxylower alkyl or benzylthiolower alkyl; R.sup.2 is benzylthiomethyl, 2-phenylethylthiomethyl, naphthylmethylthiomethyl, methylbenzylthiomethyl; 2-(carboxyphenyl)ethyl or 2-(alkoxycarbonylphenyl)ethyl; and R.sup.3 is hydrogen, lower alkyl or aminolower alkyl.|
