    Background: The aim of this study is to investigate the risk of lung cancer linked with the use of Angiotensin- Converting Enzyme Inhibitors (ACEIs) and Angiotensin Receptor Blockers (ARB) and Overall Survival for lung cancer. Methods: By using specific terminologies related to cancer and the inhibitors of ACEIs/ARBs, we searched on several research databases for studies that used to investigate the lung cancer risk associated with patients uses of ACEIs/ARBs. Results: Thirty two studies met the inclusion criteria. In two investigations, individuals with advanced pancreatic cancer (HR=0.52, %CI 0.29-0.88) and non-small cell lung cancer (HR=0.56, %CI 0.33-0.95) had a substantial improvement in Overall Survival (OS). Long-term usage of ACEIs/ARBs was linked to an elevated risk .. Read More»
