The National Institute of Science and Technology in Nanobiofarmacêutica (inct Nanobiofar) discovered a new peptide that may enhance the treatment of diseases such as diabetes and hipertensão.O alamandina peptide, a component of the renin-angiotensin system, vasodilation and other effects that protect the heart similar to those produced by angiotensin-(1-7).

The component will be presented at the IX International Symposium on vasoactive peptides, which takes place today (2) until May 5, in Belo Horizonte.

The discovery is the result of research started in 2008 and showed promising results in preliminary testing. The next step is to conduct clinical trials to evaluate the effects of the formula in humans, explains inct Nanobiofar coordinator and professor at UFMG, Robson Santos. If the substance is proven effective, it is expected that the therapeutic properties of alamandina can be added to angiotensin-(1-7), enhancing the treatment of diseases such as diabetes and hypertension.

According to Robson, the team must submit a testing protocol for approval of the National Research Ethics (Conep), under the Ministry of Health (MOH), the Committee of Ethics in Research (COEP) of the university and the National Agency for Health (ANVISA). The results were published in the journal Circulation Research.

The symposium, aimed at health professionals, is organized by inct Nanobiofar, in partnership with the Laboratory of Hypertension, Department of Physiology and Biophysics and the Graduate Program in Physiology and Pharmacology, both linked to the Institute of Biological Sciences (ICB ) Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG).
