ARNI

Hello Awesomites !

I have something with weird titles. :D

ARNI stands for Angiotensin receptor-neprilysin inhibitor.

This is combination of ARB Valsartan and neprilysin inhibitor Sacubitril recently approved for use in patients with HFrEF and NYHA Class II-IV symptoms.
NEPRILYSIN:- It is a neutral endopeptidase involved in the degradation of vasoactive peptides including natriuretic peptides, bradykinin, adrenomedullin. Inhibition of neprilysin increased the availability of these peptides, which exert favorable effects in HF.

Effects of Natriuretic peptides are-
1.Vasodilation
2.Lower blood pressure
3.Reduced sympathetic tone
4.Reduced aldosterone levels
5.Natriuresis/Diuresis

In a large trial, this agent was shown to be superior to enalapril in reducing death and rehospitalization among NYHA class II-IV patients with HFrEF.

Have a great day ahead.
Upasana Y. :)
