Captopril Administration Reduces Thrombus Formation and Surface Expression of Platelet Glycoprotein IIb/IIIa in Early Postmyocardial Infarction Stage

Abstract

Long-term administration of the angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor captopril in survivors of myocardial infarction (MI) reduces the risk of cardiovascular death, recurrence of MI, and unstable angina, suggesting that captopril may posses antithrombotic properties that have not been clearly elucidated. We assessed the short-term antithrombotic effects… (More)
