The investigators are conducting a randomised controlled trial to investigate the clinical and cost effectiveness of Ramipril which is an anti-hypertensive medication in patients with intermittent claudication. The investigators aim to recruit 78 participants in total. The investigators will randomise the 78 participants into two groups: Ramipril group with 39 participants and Placebo group with 39 participants. The investigators will measure Ramipril's effect on walking by doing a simple treadmill test and measuring the maximum walking distance the participant can walk. The investigators also want to examine Ramipril's effect on arterial function, cardiovascular prognosis, quality of life and cost effectiveness.

The purpose of this study is to determine if a dose of ramipril combined with a normal dose of telmisartan 80 mg will be more effective than ramipril 20 mg in reducing microalbuminuria in ...
One important clinical challenge in older individuals is maintaining mobility in the absence of pain. Peripheral arterial disease affects up to 12% of adults over 50 and impairs quality of...
The objective is to investigate the safety of ramipril 10 mg/day used in prevention of cardiovascular events in high-risk patients, including the criteria of the HOPE study.
This study is to determine if an oral drug called Ramipril can lower the chance of memory loss in patients with glioblastoma getting chemoradiation. Patients will take Ramipril during chem...
This study is to compare the pharmacodynamics of a Fixed Dose Combination Pill AAR (acetylsalicylic acid 100 mg, atorvastatin 40 mg and ramipril 10 mg) and the respective reference product...
To determine the lower limb joint kinetic strategies during stair descent in claudicants with peripheral arterial disease (PAD-IC).
An isotope dilution selective and sensitive high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-ESI-MS/MS) method has been developed for the simultaneous determination of hydrochloroth...
Studies have suggested a beneficial effect of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibition. To explore whether the ACE inhibitor ramipril has a direct effect on the microvasculature beyond the blood...
High-pressure intermittent limb compression (HPILC) has been proposed as an alternative treatment of disabling intermittent claudication. The objective of this study was to conduct a systematic review...
Drugs blocking the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system may offer benefit on endothelial function, inflammation, and hemostasis in addition to the effects of reducing blood pressure. We examined the c...
A long-acting angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor. It is a prodrug that is transformed in the liver to its active metabolite ramiprilat.
An intermittent and self-limiting headache disorder in individuals with CEREBROSPINAL FLUID SHUNTS emplaced for the treatment of HYDROCEPHALUS. The symptoms of headache, vomiting, and cranial neuropathies are associated with intermittent obstruction of the shunt.
Instruments that generate intermittent forces, uniformed or graduated, to facilitate the emptying of VEINS. These devices are used to reduce limb EDEMA and prevent venous THROMBOEMBOLISM, such as deep vein thrombosis in the legs.
An autosomal recessive inherited disorder with multiple forms of phenotypic expression, caused by a defect in the oxidative decarboxylation of branched-chain amino acids (AMINO ACIDS, BRANCHED-CHAIN). These metabolites accumulate in body fluids and render a "maple syrup" odor. The disease is divided into classic, intermediate, intermittent, and thiamine responsive subtypes. The classic form presents in the first week of life with ketoacidosis, hypoglycemia, emesis, neonatal seizures, and hypertonia. The intermediate and intermittent forms present in childhood or later with acute episodes of ataxia and vomiting. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p936)
Techniques for effecting the transition of the respiratory-failure patient from mechanical ventilation to spontaneous ventilation, while meeting the criteria that tidal volume be above a given threshold (greater than 5 ml/kg), respiratory frequency be below a given count (less than 30 breaths/min), and oxygen partial pressure be above a given threshold (PaO2 greater than 50mm Hg). Weaning studies focus on finding methods to monitor and predict the outcome of mechanical ventilator weaning as well as finding ventilatory support techniques which will facilitate successful weaning. Present methods include intermittent mandatory ventilation, intermittent positive pressure ventilation, and mandatory minute volume ventilation.
