ACE inhibitors (angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors) have been mentioned frequently in this series over the last month. This piece sees the long promised focus on ACE and the effects of estrogen as a way of dealing with some of the potentially fatal symptoms caused by COVID 19.

It’s still early days in the battle against this terrible virus, this piece presents some speculation as to where the conflict may head to. TopMedTalk provides evidence based discussions, here we ask how more evidence can be gathered as tantalizing theories emerge about dealing more effectively with these patients.

Presented by Desiree Chappell with Monty Mythen and additional questions from Mike Grocott, alongside their guest Hugh Montgomery, Intensive Care Society Board Member and, Professor of Cardiovascular Genetics and Critical Care University College London.
