The article discusses research being done on the efficacy of ramipril to prevent progression from pre-diabetes to diabetes, published in a 2006 issue of the "New England Journal of Medicine." Investigators from the Diabetes Reduction Assessment with Ramipril and Rosiglitazone Medication, enrolled prediabetic adults and randomized them to ramipril. The study concluded that there was no difference between ramipril and placebo in the incidence of diabetes among persons with pre-diabetes.
