What are Neprilysin inhibitors?
Neprilysin inhibitors causes an increase in levels of natriuretic peptides which is important in maintaining fluid and sodium balance through natriuresis, diuresis and vasodilation. This reduces blood pressure and assists heart failure.
Neprilysin can be used in combination with other medications to enhance the treatment of heart failure.
There are no drugs in this category. Some medications may have been reclassified. See cardiovascular agents.
