Angioedema is a well-recognized side effect of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor therapy. Angioedema can also be seen with angiotensin receptor blocker therapy but much less frequently than is the case with ACE inhibitors. For unclear reasons, ACE inhibitor-related angioedema occurs more commonly in black patients. Read More

Background: Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors are associated with angioedema episodes that are potentially life-threatening. Few data are available on the outcome of patients reporting this adverse effect when they are switched to another drug. Scattered reports of angioedema associated with angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) use question the safety of using these drugs in patients with ACE inhibitor-related angioedema. Read More

Background: Immunosuppressants decrease circulating dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPPIV) activity in transplant patients, and decreased DPPIV activity has been associated with angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor-associated angioedema. One study has reported an increased incidence of ACE inhibitor-associated angioedema among transplant patients compared to published rates, while several case series report angioedema in patients taking specific immunosuppressant agents.
Objective: To test the hypothesis that transplant patients are at increased risk of ACE inhibitor-associated angioedema. Read More

Background: Up to seven in every 1000 patients experience angioedema from angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, even after many years of use. In 2003, every 20th Norwegian used an ACE inhibitor.
Case Report: A 61-year-old woman with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and a past acute myocardial infarction had used 7. Read More
