Brain Aminopeptidase A Inhibitors (BAPAIs), an emerging class

for the treatment of Hypertension and Heart Failure

  • The mechanism of action of this innovative therapeutic treatment and a synthesis of the promising results obtained in arterial hypertension will be presented by Dr. Llorens-Cortes, Director of the INSERM Unit which carried out the initial research into QGC001.
  • Pr. Leenen, of the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, will describe their current work into the use of QGC001 in heart failure and the new encouraging results obtained in animals for this indication.
  • Pr. Laurent, of Paris Descartes University, will highlight the importance of BAPAIs in the current therapeutic arsenal and their contribution towards currently unsatisfied medical needs.

At this event, a scientific presentation will also be led by Dr. Yannick Marc, researcher at Quantum Genomics, working within the joint laboratory CADIOBAPAI at the Collège de France.
