• New insights into the antiatherosclerotic potential of ACE inhibition
This monograph, New insights into the antiatherosclerotic potential of ACE inhibition is offered as part of a series of continuing medical education programs from the University of Florida College of Medicine. Coeditors are Carl J. Pepine, MD, University of Florida College of Medicine and Eva M. Lonn, MD, McMaster University.
Among the topics to be covered in this monograph is a review of the recently published Study to Evaluate Carotid Ultrasound Changes in Patients Treated with Ramipril and vitamin E (SECURE) conducted by Dr. Lonn and her colleagues. The study has demonstrated the antiatherogenic capability of ACE inhibition, and it is of considerable importance to physicians in the treatment of patients with cardiovascular disease. The content also explores the new science that may play a role in the provocative results of the trial.
