Screening Test for ACE or Vasopeptidase Inhibitor Associated Angioedema
Angioedema is a life-threatening and unpredictable side effect of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and ACE/Neutral endopeptidase (NEP) inhibitors, drugs aimed at reducing cardiovascular mortality associated with a variety of disease states. This technology permits the identification of individuals at risk for developing this angioedemic condition as a result of taking ACE inhibitors or NEP inhibitors. The patents and patent applications claim biological markers, diagnostic methods and kits.
