abstract

  • This presentation reviews data from epidemiologic and clinical trials on antioxidant vitamins, angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, and homocysteine and their effect on atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Each of these areas seems promising, but the results of large, on-going studies must be determined before definitive conclusions can be made as to the effectiveness of these therapies.
