Abstract

Purpose: To determine the efficacy and safety of a combination of ulinastatin and meglumine cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) in the treatment of acute myocardial infarction (AMI), and its effect on serum levels of hypersensitive-c-reactive protein (hs-CRP), cardiac troponin I (cTnI), creatine kinase (CK).
Methods: A total of 90 AMI patients admitted to The Second Affiliated Hospital of Qiqihar Medical College, Qiqihar City, Heilongjiang Province, China from January 2019 to January 2020 were selected and randomized (in a 1:1 ration) into control group and study group. Patients in the two groups received meglumine cAMP, while those in the study group were, in addition, treated with ulinastatin. The two groups were compared with regard to clinical efficacy, cardiac function indices, serum biochemical indices, incidence of drug-related side effects, duration and number of episodes of angina pectoris, and levels of neuroendocrine hormones.
Results: The study group exhibited remarkably higher treatment effectiveness and cardiac function indices compared to the control group (p < 0.05). However, lower levels of serum biochemical indices, lower total incidence of drug toxicity, smaller number and shorter duration of angina pectoris, and lower levels of panel reactive antibodies (PRA) were observed in the study when compared to control group (p< 0.001).
Conclusion: Treatment of AMI patients with the combination of ulinastatin and meglumine cAMP significantly reduces the clinical symptoms of the patients, with remarkable efficacy and high safety. Furthermore, it down-regulates serum levels of hs-CRP, cTnI and CK. Thus, the combination treatment seems superior to the conventional therapy.
