The Effect of Ramipril in Suppressing ST2 Expression in Rheumatic Mitral Stenosis Patients

Objective propose: to investigate the effect of Ramipril in suppressing ST2 (suppression of tumorigenicity 2) in the cardiac mitral valve in patients with Rheumatic Heart Disease. We hypothesized that we hypothesized that ramipril will improve rheumatic mitral valve fibrosis through the downregulation of ST2.

Treatment of Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Inhibitor-induced Angioedema

Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE) inhibitors are among the most important and widely prescribed drugs. They reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with high blood pressure, heart disease, and kidney disease. Unfortunately, their use carries the risk of causing life-threatening airway swelling in some patients. There is currently no treatment for …

PITA-HF: Feasibility Safety and Tolerability

Heart failure affects over 25 million people worldwide and nearly 7 million adults in the United States alone. Nearly 25% of patients with heart failure have worsened disease burden from dyssynchronous ventricular contraction due to abnormal electrical impulse propagation. These patients may benefit from cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) where contraction …

Influenza Vaccination ACEI and ARB in the Evolution of SARS-Covid19 Infection

Some authors have proposed the use of the flu vaccine to reduce the severity of COVID-19 cases, while some have proposed the use of ACE Inhibitors (ACEI) or Angiotensin Receptor blockers (ARB), since this virus shares hemagglutinin as a transmission mechanism and acts on the ACE2 enzyme during infection. The …
