Clinical Study Title:
The role of nicorandil in the treatment of myocardial ischaemia.
|Plain English Summary:|
|Nicorandil is the vitamin known as B3. In recent years, it has been used in foreign countries to aid in relieving angina pectoris. It helps to open up potassium-ATP channels in the body, and increases the cGMP levels. Nicorandil has been shown to be as effective as many of the drugs prescribed for angina. It also has been associated with aiding with ischemic symptoms. The daily use of nicorandil has been associated with a more improved treatment for ischemic heart disease, as well as improving heart functioning over all.|
