In examining alcohol-induced pathologies, other researchers have suggested three potential ways in which alcohol exposure can lead to excess free-radical generation and oxidative stress: ethanol metabolism, ethanol effects on antioxidant proteins and antioxidant enzymes, and activation/alteration in neurohormonal systems (table 2) (Fernandez-Checa et al.
Cardiomyocytes produce and secrete a family of related peptide hormones, named cardiac natriuretic hormones (CNHs), [1] that have potent diuretic, natriuretic, and vascular smooth muscle-relaxing effects and also carry out complex interactions with the neurohormonal system, as reviewed recently (1-7).
When we have already blocked one neurohormonal system after another--the renin-angiotensin system with an ACE inhibitor, the sympathetic nervous system using a [beta]-blocker, aldosterone with spironolactone--the additional benefit is not what we expected," he observed.
Alternatively, ventricular hypertrophy or remodelling could be related to the trophic effects of activated neurohormonal systems such as noradrenaline or angiotensin II with or without the synergistic effects of endothelin-1.
Other effects such as improved glycemic control; increase in glucagon levels; decrease in serum uric acid levels; activation of hypoxia-inducible factor 1 and subsequent erythropoiesis; reductions in vascular stiffness, vascular resistance, blood pressure and body weight; natriuresis; and the effect on systemic and renal neurohormonal systems may also contribute to improvements in progression of renal disease (Neal et al.
A twice-a-day tablet, it acts to enhance the protective neurohormonal systems of the heart (NP system) while simultaneously suppressing the harmful system (the RAAS).
