Brand name authorized in: Cyprus

Active ingredients

The drug ACAPRIL contains one active pharmaceutical ingredient (API):

1 Ramipril
UNII L35JN3I7SJ - RAMIPRIL

Ramiprilat, the active metabolite of the prodrug ramipril, inhibits the enzyme dipeptidylcarboxypeptidase I (synonyms: angiotensin-converting enzyme; kininase II). In plasma and tissue this enzyme catalyses the conversion of angiotensin I to the active vasoconstrictor substance angiotensin II, as well as the breakdown of the active vasodilator bradykinin. Reduced angiotensin II formation and inhibition of bradykinin breakdown lead to vasodilatation.
