The discovery in 1988 of endothelin, the most potent human endogenous vasoconstrictor, has opened the race to the discovery of a new weapon against arterial hypertension. The development of the endothelin receptors antagonists (ERAs) and the demonstration of their efficacy in preclinical models initially raised a wave of enthusiasm, which was however tempered due to their unfavorable side effect profile. In this article we will review the phases of the development ERAs, and their current and future place as therapeutic tool against arterial hypertension.
