Pharmacological particulars
Enacard is the maleate salt of enalapril, a derivative of two amino acids, L-alanine and L-proline. Enalapril is the ethyl ester of the parent diacid, enalaprilat. Following oral administration, enalapril is readily absorbed and then hydrolysed to enalaprilat, which is a highly specific, long-acting, non-sulphydryl angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor.
