MedKoo CAT#: 314262

CAS#: 1369773-39-6 (hemi-calcium)

Description: Sacubitril, also known as AHU377, is angiotensin receptor neprilysin inhibitor being studied for use in combination with valsartan for heart failure. Sacubitril is a prodrug that is activated to LBQ657 by de-ethylation via esterases. LBQ657 inhibits the enzyme neprilysin, which is responsible for the degradation of atrial and brain natriuretic peptide, two blood pressure lowering peptides that work mainly by reducing blood volume.

Additional Information

Sacubitril is an antihypertensive drug used in combination with valsartan. The combination drug, valsartan/sacubitril, known during trials as LCZ696 and marketed under the brand name, Entresto, is a treatment for heart failure. It was approved under the FDA's priority review process for use in heart failure on July 7, 2015.

Sacubitril is a prodrug that is activated to LBQ657 by de-ethylation via esterases. LBQ657 inhibits the enzyme neprilysin, which is responsible for the degradation of atrial and brain natriuretic peptide, two blood pressure lowering peptides that work mainly by reducing blood volume. (source:
