Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors.
ATX code C09A A03.
Lisinopril is a peptidyl dipeptidase inhibitor. It inhibits ACE, which is the catalyst for the conversion of angiotensin I to a vasoconstrictor peptide, angiotensin II. Angiotensin II also stimulates the secretion of aldosterone by the adrenal cortex. ACE inhibition leads to a decrease in the concentration of angiotensin II, which leads to a decrease in vasoconstrictive activity and a decrease in aldosterone secretion. The latter decrease may lead to an increase in serum potassium.
Because the mechanism by which lisinopril lowers blood pressure is thought to be primarily inhibition of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS), lisinopril lowers blood pressure even in hypertensive patients with low renin levels. ACE is identical to kinase II, an enzyme that degrades bradykinin. It remains unclear whether elevated levels of bradykinin, a potent vasodilator peptide, are important in the therapeutic effects of lisinopril.
In addition to lowering blood pressure, lisinopril reduces albuminuria due to changes in histology and hemodynamics of the glomerular apparatus of the kidneys. Lisinopril treatment did not affect glycemic control, as evidenced by the lack of significant effects on glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) levels.
Plays a positive role in restoring the function of damaged endothelium in patients with hyperglycemia.
