Effect of cardiovascular biochemical markers in predicting cardiac hospitalisation for patients with heart failure and associated interaction with ACEi therapy

      The cardiovascular biochemical markers of platelet aggregation (AGG), nitric oxide responsiveness, (NOr) asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) and augmentation index (AIX) are of theoretical importance in the prognosis of cardiac conditions. Their clinical importance in predicting cardiac hospitalisations and their interaction with ACEi therapy was assessed to elucidate the underlying mechanism of action in preventing cardiac hospitalisation especially with regards to worsening heart failure and myocardial infarction or ischaemia.
