How effective are Adecut tablets 15 mg from Japan for hypertension (delapril)?
Adecut tablets contain delapril, a prodrug that converts in the body into two angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors. Those metabolites inhibit the activity of the enzyme converting angiotensin I to angiotensin II and, by this, decrease the formation of angiotensin II, a vasoconstrictor, and increase the level of bradykinin, a peptide vasodilator. As the result, Adecut tablets relax the blood vessels, decrease the blood volume and lower blood pressure.
