The purpose of this project is to conduct a proof of concept study in patients with probable Alzheimer's Disease who have mild to moderate hypertension, in order to determine if there is less global brain atrophy over one year, as measured by ventricular enlargement as a primary outcome measure, when patients are randomized to treatment with an angiotensin receptor blocker compared to an Angiotensin Converting Enzyme inhibitor (ACEI).
