A US study of dogs has shown that antihypertensive treatment can prevent alcoholic cardiomyopathy. Blocking the angiotensin II type 1 receptor (AT1) prevented activation of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS). Dogs given alcohol and the A2A irbesartan (Aprovel) had levels of RAS activity and cardiac dysfunction similar to controls (Circulation 2006; 114: 226-36).
