Lisinopril blood pressure treatment

Postby radeck » Sat Aug 22, 2009 10:07 am

I was wondering what you people think about the recent study that was all over news using Lisinopril (a standard blood pressure medication with few side effects) to very effectively treat MS-like disease in rodents, in the context of this thread?

(see e.g. http://www.reuters.com/article/rbssHeal ... 4420090817)

In particular I wonder if the blood-pressure lowering property would be an additional benefit to the shift Lisinopril apparently induces in the T cell population (toward regulating ones), because it may reduce obstruction of venous blood-flow?

Thanks for any insights someone might have on this...

Hi!
I take some pills (Vasocardin) because of my high blood pressure.
My plan is to go to see my doctor and I will ask him to change the pills.
I would like to start with Lisinopril. There is not big price difference and we have it on market in Slovakia.
So far I do not know more.

If you manage to change Erika let us know what it does for you symptom wise.

I used to excited by these effective against EAE treatments.

That was back when I thought MS was autoimmune.

OK. But anyway I plan to have treatment as well I hope by the end of this year. Depends on Dr. Simka and his team. I know they also want to be ready to start by the end of this year.
