ACE Inhibitors or ARBs Discontinuation for Clinical Outcome Risk Reduction in Patients Hospitalized for the Endemic Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) Infection : the Randomized ACORES-2 Study
Since December 2019, a novel coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2) has caused an international outbreak of respiratory illness described as COVID-19.
Individuals with a history of cardiovascular disease develop a more severe illness and have higher rates of death.
Because of the potential interaction between RAS blockers and SARS-CoV-2 mechanism of infection, there are ongoing scientific discussions on whether they should be stopped or continued in patients with COVID-19.
It is crucial to determine whether RAS blockers should be discontinued or not in patients with COVID-19.
