The goal of pharmacologic treatment at this stage is to inhibit angiotensin, aldosterone, and catecholamines, and increase salt excretion to prevent long-term damage resulting from the body's sustained neurohumoral and inflammatory compensatory mechanisms (Huether & McCance, 2017).
[30] Based on the differences in the effects on the neurohumoral factors between cilnidipine and other drugs, it can be speculate that the inhibitory effect of cilnidipine on the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system by its N-type calcium channel blocking action [31-34] may have decreased the suppression of the K+ channels.
The influence of physical activity on ABI among activity individuals is linked to the physiologic adjustments and adaptations that improve endothelial and neurohumoral functioning (40).
Furthermore the endothelium responds to the numerous intrinsic factors including temperature, sheer stress and transmural pressure as well as extrinsic factors such as mental stress, medication and neurohumoral responses.

Additionally, improved functional capacity of the patients and reduced neurohumoral activation were observed [17].
Progression of heart failure leads to chronic activation of neurohumoral regulation which promotes increase in atrial natriuretic peptide, brain natriuretic peptide, angiotensin II, and aldosterone all which contribute to left atrial remodeling [12].
