Bradykinin B2 Antagonist (HOE 140, Icatibant) has been shown to inhibit microvascualar leakage in a liver cirrhosis model. It also acts as an Aminopeptidase N inhibitor (Ki = 9.1 μM). Bradykinin is a potent vasodilator peptide that exerts its action through stimulation of specific endothelial receptors. It has been linked with the pathophysiological process that accompanies tissue damage and inflammation.
