Captopril reduces cardiac inflammatory markers in spontaneously hypertensive rats by inactivation of NF-kB

Abstract

Captopril is an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor widely used in the treatment of arterial hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. Our objective was to study whether captopril is able to attenuate the cardiac inflammatory process associated with arterial hypertension. Left ventricle mRNA expression and plasma levels of pro-inflammatory… (More)
