Active ingredients

The drug ACERCOMP contains a combination of these active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs):

1 Lisinopril
UNII E7199S1YWR - LISINOPRIL

Lisinopril is a peptidyl dipeptidase inhibitor. It inhibits the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) that catalyses the conversion of angiotensin I to the vasoconstrictor peptide, angiotensin II. Angiotensin II also stimulates aldosterone secretion by the adrenal cortex. Inhibition of ACE results in decreased concentrations of angiotensin II which results in decreased vasopressor activity and reduced aldosterone secretion.
