Webinar:  Enhancing ACE2 and Ang 1-7 actions a novel therapy for heart failure 

Date: Thursday, June 27, 2019 
Time: 9h00 PT, 10h00 MT, 11h00 CT 12h00 ET, 13h00 AT 
Presenters: Dr. Vaibhav Patel

The renin-angiotensin system is a peptidergic system that is well known for its role in the regulation of blood pressure and fluid homeostasis. Inhibition of the renin-angiotensin system, using angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and angiotensin receptor blockers, has been the cornerstone of heart failure therapy. 

In this webinar, Dr. Patel will highlight the role of the renin-angiotensin system in the onset and progression of heart failure. Dr. Patel’s recent research work on the novel arm of the renin-angiotensin system, specifically ACE2 (a homolog of ACE) and angiotensin 1-7, in heart failure, diabetic cardiomyopathy, and vascular disease provides robust scientific evidence supporting the therapeutic potential of ACE2 and angiotensin 1-7. Please join us also to learn how fundamental preclinical research and its translation into a clinical study paves the way for potential novel therapy.
