Antihypertensive efficacy and safety of losartan/hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) combinations have not been adequately studied in Asians. In this open-label, 12-week study in seven Asian areas, patients on monotherapy with angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) or angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) but not at blood pressure (BP) goal (sitting diastolic BP (SiDBP) <90 mm Hg in non-diabetics and <80 mm Hg in diabetics) were switched to losartan 50 mg/HCTZ 12.5 mg. At 4 and 8 weeks, the therapy for patients not at goal BP was titrated to losartan 100 mg/HCTZ 12.5 mg and to losartan 100 mg/HCTZ 25 mg, respectively. Data analysis included 430 patients with mean (s.d.) age 53.0 (10.1) years and 51.9% of the female gender. After 8 weeks (primary end point; titration up to losartan 100 mg/HCTZ 12.5 mg), 73.5% (95% confidence interval (CI): 69.0-77.6) of patients reached BP goal; 63.4 and 78.1% of patients reached BP goal at 4 weeks (titration up to losartan 50 mg/HCTZ 12.5 mg) and at 12 weeks (titration up to losartan 100 mg/HCTZ 25 mg). The mean changes from baseline (95% CI) in sitting systolic BP and SiDBP at 8 weeks were -16.7 (-18.0 to -15.4) mm Hg and -12.1 (-12.9 to -11.4) mm Hg, respectively. Clinical and laboratory adverse experiences (AEs) were reported in 27.5 and 21.0% of patients, respectively. Nine patients were discontinued because of drug-related clinical AEs. Switching Asian patients currently not at BP goal with ARB or ACEI monotherapy to a losartan/HCTZ combination achieved BP goal in the majority of patients. Losartan/HCTZ combinations were generally well tolerated.

Angiotensin II type 1 (AT(1)) receptor blockers (ARBs) are known to prevent the onset of stroke and to attenuate neural damage. Additional beneficial effects of ARBs, independent of AT(1) receptor blockade, have been highlighted. Irbesartan is reported to act as an antagonist of the monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) receptor, C-C chemokine receptor 2 (CCR2), due to its molecular structure. We examined the possible synergistic effects of co-administration of irbesartan with propagermanium, a CCR2 antagonist, on ischemic brain damage. Administration of propagermanium decreased ischemic brain area after middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO). To study the possible synergistic effects of propagermanium with ARBs, we employed non-effective lower doses of irbesartan and losartan. Administration of irbesartan with propagermanium decreased the ischemic brain area more markedly compared with propagermanium alone, but co-administration of losartan did not. MCP-1 mRNA level was significantly increased on the ipsilateral side after MCAO, and administration of irbesartan with propagermanium decreased the MCP-1 level, whereas co-administration of losartan did not. Similar results were obtained for MCP-1 protein level. CCR2 mRNA expression was significantly elevated on the ipsilateral side; however, no significant difference was observed between each group. mRNA levels of other inflammatory cytokines such as TNF-α and IL-1β also significantly increased on the ipsilateral side, but the expression levels were not changed by each drug treatment. Taking these findings together, irbesartan exerts more beneficial effects on ischemic brain damage with an MCP-1 receptor blocker, at least due to its inhibitory effects on MCP-1/CCR2 signaling beyond AT(1) receptor blockade.

Angiotensin II (Ang II) plays a critical role in the development of vascular lesions in hypertension, atherosclerosis, and several renal diseases. Because Ang II may contribute to the leukocyte recruitment associated with these pathological states, the aim of the present study was to assess the role of Ang II in leukocyte-endothelial cell interactions in vivo.

Compared with sham group, the sections of injured aorta showed marked intimal thickening with large numbers of VSMCs proliferation throughout intima and media, the level of Ang II obviously increased by 78.8% (P < 0.05), the expression of PDGF-beta receptor significantly increased by 83.9% (P < 0.05) at 14th day after operation. The expression of PDGF-beta receptor in cultured VSMC treated with Ang II was higher than that of control group (P < 0.01). The effect of Ang II was inhibited remarkably by pretreatment with losartan.

Overall there was a 7 +/- 2 mmHg fall (mean +/- SEM) in mean daytime systolic blood pressure at 4 weeks, and a 22 +/- 7% fall in protein/creatinine ratio (both P < 0.05), with no difference between groups A and B or between 4 and 8 weeks. These two changes were highly correlated (r = 0.64, P = 0.006, taking both groups together). Changes in diastolic pressure and in night-time systolic pressure did not reach statistical significance. Changes in renal plasma flow (measured by Tc 99m MAGIII), glomerular filtration rate and filtration fraction (measured by 51Cr EDTA) did not reach statistical significance, did not differ between the two groups and did not correlate with effects on proteinuria.

Mean ± SD systolic and diastolic BP decreased from 152 ± 13/87 ± 10 mmHg to 128 ± 14/74 ± 10 mmHg, respectively, after 12 months (p < 0.001). Mean ± SD plasma BNP levels decreased significantly from 46.0 ± 83.0 pg/mL to 40.8 ± 68.0 pg/mL (p < 0.05). The percentage of patients who achieved the JSH 2004 target BP was 51% after 12 months; the percentage was 63% in elderly patients aged ≥65 years without complications, and 43% in patients with concomitant diabetes mellitus or chronic kidney disease. No association was found between a decrease in plasma BNP levels and BP, age, body mass index or estimated glomerular filtration rate. There was a significant increase in serum uric acid and a decrease in serum potassium, but both were within the range of normal values. Adverse events were observed in 8.6% of the patients.

Combined therapy decreased 24-hour proteinuria (-45.54% versus baseline) more effectively than either losartan (-28.17%; analysis of variance, P < 0.01) or benazepril (-20.19%; analysis of variance, P < 0.001) alone. Subgroup analysis showed that antiproteinuric effects of combination therapy, as well as losartan or benazepril alone, were significantly greater in patients with basal proteinuria greater than 2 g/24 h than in those with proteinuria less than this value (P < 0.001, P < 0.01, and P < 0.05, respectively). All therapies significantly decreased blood pressure (BP) compared with baseline, but there were no differences between treatments in BP changes.

During phase I of the study, no statistically significant differences were observed between the low-dose losartan group and the control group. However, hearts treated with high-dose losartan demonstrated an increase in peak systolic pressure, maximum first derivative of pressure, pressure-time integral, coronary flow, and oxygen consumption (p < 0.0001). During phase II, hearts treated with losartan showed a significantly better recovery on reperfusion, as reflected by better contractility (p < 0.001), higher oxygen consumption (p < 0.001), higher coronary flow (p < 0.0001), and lower creatine phosphokinase levels (41.1 +/- 1.7 versus 73.3 +/- 5.6 U/L; p < 0.001).

Fingernail clubbing and discoloration frequently indicate serious pulmonary, cardiovascular, and gastrointestinal pathologies. A 76-year-old Caucasian man developed clubbing of the fingernails and discoloration of both the fingernails and toenails after 27 days of treatment with the angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) losartan 50 mg/day. Even though this therapy was switched to valsartan, the nail changes persisted for another 6 months. The patient's therapy then was changed to captopril, and the changes gradually subsided over 17 months. An extensive literature search revealed no reports of this effect in association with ARBs. However, one manufacturer had received spontaneous reports. Despite careful consideration of other possible causes of the patient's symptoms, the temporal association with the start and discontinuation of ARB therapy suggests a possible drug-related adverse event.

Rat models of left ventricular hypertrophy induced by pressure overload was established by placing a band around the abdominal aortic of the rats, from which the hypertrophied cadiomyocytes were isolated and purified 8 weeks later. The isolated cardiomyocytes were treated with AngII plus losartan or AngII plus PD123319, and 36 h after the treatments, the expression levels of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta) and IL-6 in the supernatant were detected using radioimmunoassay.

While there have been reports on changes in the renin-angiotensin system and angiotensin II (AT) receptors in diabetes, there is no agreement on the nature of these changes. This study has characterised specific AT receptors in the heart, kidney, liver and adrenal glands of the streptozotocin (STZ)-diabetic rat using radioligand binding studies with the radioligand 125I-[Sar1, Ile8]-angiotensin II. Left ventricular AT receptor density increased by 135% 4 weeks after treatment and by 206% 12 weeks after treatment; in the liver, AT receptor density increased by 476% (4 weeks) and 263% (12 weeks) and in the adrenal gland by 236% (4 weeks) and 109% (12 weeks). In contrast, renal AT receptor density decreased by 49% (4 weeks) and 36% (12 weeks). Competition-displacement assays with losartan, an AT1-selective ligand, showed that the proportion of AT receptor subtypes remained unchanged. STZ treatment decreased plasma angiotensinogen by 72% (4 weeks) and 67% (12 weeks) and increased plasma renin concentration after 12 weeks; plasma renin activity and aldosterone concentrations remained unchanged. Treatment with human insulin (5 U/day) attenuated changes in plasma angiotensinogen and AT receptor density except in the left ventricle. We conclude that there are major changes in AT receptors in the STZ-diabetic rat that are tissue-specific and time-dependent. Plasma angiotensinogen and renin secretion change in directions that result in the maintenance of plasma renin activity and aldosterone concentration.

Angiotensin II (Ang II) induces the pathological process of vascular structures, including renal glomeruli by hemodynamic and nonhemodynamic direct effects. In kidneys, Ang II plays an important role in the development of proteinuria by the modification of podocyte molecules. We have previously found that Ang II suppressed podocyte AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) via Ang II type 1 receptor and MAPK signaling pathway. In the present study, we investigated the roles of AMPK on the changes of p130Cas of podocyte by Ang II. We cultured mouse podocytes and treated them with various concentrations of Ang II and AMPK-modulating agents and analyzed the changes of p130Cas by confocal imaging and western blotting. In immunofluorescence study, Ang II decreased the intensity of p130Cas and changed its localization from peripheral cytoplasm into peri-nuclear areas in a concentrated pattern in podocytes. Ang II also reduced the amount of p130Cas in time and dose-sensitive manners. AMPK activators, metformin and AICAR, restored the suppressed and mal-localized p130Cas significantly, whereas, compound C, an AMPK inhibitor, further aggravated the changes of p130Cas. Losartan, an Ang II type 1 receptor antagonist, recovered the abnormal changes of p130Cas suppressed by Ang II. These results suggest that Ang II induces the relocalization and suppression of podocyte p130Cas by the suppression of AMPK via Ang II type 1 receptor, which would contribute to Ang II-induced podocyte injury.

1. The ability of 5-HT2 and 5-HT4 receptor antagonists to modify the disinhibitory profile of diazepam and other agents was investigated in male BKW mice in the light/dark test box. 2. The 5-HT2A/2B/2C receptor antagonists ritanserin, MDL11939 and RP62203 and also methysergide, which failed to modify mouse behaviour when administered alone, caused dose-related enhancements (4 to 8 fold) in the potency of diazepam to disinhibit behavioural responding to the aversive situation of the test box. 3. Ritanserin was shown to enhance the disinhibitory potency of other benzodiazepines, chlordiazepoxide (4 fold), temazepam (10 fold) and lorazepam (10 fold), the 5-HT1A receptor ligands, 8-OH-DPAT (25 fold), buspirone (100 fold) and lesopitron (500 fold), the 5-HT3 receptor antagonists, ondansetron (100 fold) R(+)-zacopride (100 fold) and S(-)-zacopride (greater than a 1000 fold), the substituted benzamides, sulpiride (10 fold) and tiapride (5 to 10 fold) and the cholecystokinin (CCK)A receptor antagonist, devazepide (100 fold). It also reduced the onset of action of disinhibition following treatment with the 5-HT synthesis inhibitor parachlorophenylalanine. Ritanserin failed to enhance the disinhibitory effects of the CCKB receptor antagonist CI-988, the angiotensin AT1 receptor antagonist losarten or the angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor ceranapril. 4. The 5-HT4 receptor antagonists SDZ205-557, GR113808 and SB204070 caused dose-related reductions in the disinhibitory effect of diazepam, returning values to those shown in vehicle treated controls. The antagonists failed to modify mouse behaviour when administered alone. 5. GR113808 was also shown to cause a dose-related antagonism of the disinhibitory effects of chlordiazepoxide, lorazepam, 8-OH-DPAT, buspirone, lesopitron, ondansetron, R(+)-zacopride, sulpiride, tiapride, devazepide, CI-988, losarten, ceranapril and parachlorophenylalanine. 6. It was concluded that in BKW mice (a) the failure of 5-HT2 and 5-HT4 receptor antagonists when administered alone to modify behaviour in the light/dark test indicates an absence of an endogenous 5-HT tone at the 5-HT2 and 5-HT4 receptors and (b) the enhancement by the 5-HT2 receptor antagonists and attenuation by the 5-HT4 receptor antagonists of drug-induced disinhibition indicates a plurality of 5-HT receptor involvement in the mediation of drug-induced disinhibitory profiles in the mouse.

Tubular atrophy is a common histological feature of chronic renal failure, and epithelial cell death by apoptosis might play an important role in its pathogenesis. Angiotensin II contributes to the progressive nature of many kidney diseases and treatment with angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors preserves the structure of the tubulointerstitial compartment in human and experimental renal diseases.

Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP)/natriuretic peptide receptor-A (NPR-A) system is suggested as an endogenous anti-hypertrophic protective mechanism of the heart. We have shown previously that Angiotensin II (ANG II), an effector molecule of renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system, down-regulates NPR-A expression and its activity in vivo rat heart. However, the underlying mechanism by which ANG II down-regulates NPR-A expression in the heart is not well understood. Hence, the present investigation was aimed to determine whether ANG II-stimulated reactive oxygen species (ROS) and NF-κB are involved in the down-regulation of NPR-A activity in H9c2 (2-1) cardiac myoblast cells. The H9c2 (2-1) cardiac myoblast cells were exposed to ANG II (10(-7) M for 20 h) with/or without blocker treatment (losartan-10 µM, N-acetyl cysteine (NAC)-10 mM and pyrrolidine dithiocarbamate (PDTC)-100 µM). On exposure, ANG II induced a significant decrease (P < 0.001) in the expression of Npr1 (coding for NPR-A) gene and NPR-A receptor-dependent guanylyl cyclase (GC) activity. The level of expression of proto-oncogenes (c-fos, c-myc, and c-jun) and natriuretic peptides (ANP and BNP) was increased in ANG II-treated cells when compared with control cells. Interestingly, ANG II-dependent repression of Npr1 gene expression and guanylyl cyclase (GC) activity was completely restored on treatment with losartan, while only a partial reversal was observed in NAC- and PDTC-co-treated cells. In conclusion, the results of this study suggest that ROS-mediated NF-κB activation mechanism is critically involved in the ANG II-mediated down-regulation of NPR-A expression and its GC activity.

losartan cozaar reviews

Interindividual variation of blood pressure (BP) responses to antihypertensive drugs is extensive. Several clinical, laboratory, and genetic predictors of BP responses to blood pressure-lowering agents have been suggested. We describe here the principal findings from the GENRES Study which is primarily a pharmacogenetic study of antihypertensive drug responses but also includes analysis of certain clinical and laboratory predictors. In this placebo-controlled, double-blinded, and randomized study, more than 200 male subjects with essential hypertension were treated with four antihypertensive drug monotherapies (amlodipine, bisoprolol, hydrochlorothiazide, and losartan) in a cross-over fashion, resulting in more than 800 treatment periods. Generally, placebo BP level was the best predictor of BP responses. In addition, higher baseline plasma renin activity predicted better BP response to losartan and bisoprolol, and weaker response to hydrochlorothiazide. A number of candidate gene polymorphisms analysed so far have given negative results in relation to BP responses, with the exception of an STK39 variant associating with losartan responsiveness. In future, genome-wide association studies on antihypertensive pharmacogenetics may identify novel pathways of BP regulation and provide new tools for both basic research and clinical use.

It has been established that deoxycorticosterone acetate (DOCA)-salt hypertensive rats have an overactive brain angiotensin-system. The purpose of the present study was to identify the brain sites showing enhanced angiotensin-system activity responsible for the pathogenesis of hypertension in DOCA-salt hypertensive rats. The angiotensin receptor antagonist, losartan, was injected into brain ventricles or into tissues around the rostral parts of the third ventricle in conscious DOCA-salt hypertensive rats. Losartan (1 microg) injection into the lateral ventricle or into the rostral parts of the third ventricle produced a depressor response, whereas the agent did not affect blood pressure when injected into the caudal parts of the third ventricle or into the fourth ventricle. Losartan (0.1 microg) injection into the anterior hypothalamic preoptic area, anterior (AHA) produced a depressor response. Angiotensin II (0.1-1 ng) injection into the AHA produced a pressor response in sham-operated and DOCA-salt hypertensive rats, and the pressor response to angiotensin II (1 ng) was greater in DOCA-salt hypertensive rats than that in sham-operated rats. Release of angiotensin peptides in the AHA was greater in DOCA-salt hypertensive rats than that in sham-operated rats. These findings suggest that the angiotensin-system in the AHA is enhanced, and that this enhancement is involved in the maintenance of hypertension in DOCA-salt hypertensive rats. Both increased pressor reactivity to angiotensin II and increased release of angiotensin peptides in the AHA appear to be related to this enhancement of the angiotensin-system in DOCA-salt hypertensive rats.

In rats, both central and systemic ANG II type 1 (AT(1)) receptor blockade attenuate sympathetic hyperactivity, but central blockade more effectively attenuates left ventricular (LV) dysfunction post buy cozaar -myocardial infarction (MI). In protocol I, we examined whether functional effects on cardiac load may play a role and different cardiac effects disappear after withdrawal of the blockade. Wistar rats were infused for 4 wk post-MI intracerebroventricularly (1 mg.kg(-1).day(-1)) or injected subcutaneously daily (100 mg x kg(-1) x day(-1)) with losartan. LV dimensions and function were assessed at 4 wk and at 6 wk post-MI, i.e., 2 wk after discontinuing treatments. At 4 and 6 wk post-MI, LV dimensions were increased and ejection fraction was decreased. Intracerebroventricular but not subcutaneous losartan significantly improved these parameters. At 6 wk, LV peak systolic pressure (LVPSP) and maximal or minimal first derivative of change in pressure over time (dP/dt(max/min)) were decreased and LV end-diastolic pressure (LVEDP) was increased. All four indexes were improved by previous intracerebroventricular losartan, whereas subcutaneous losartan improved LVEDP only. In protocol II, we evaluated effects of oral instead of subcutaneous administration of losartan for 4 wk post-MI. Losartan ( approximately 200 mg x kg(-1) x day(-1)) either via drinking water or by gavage similarly decreased AT(1) receptor binding densities in brain nuclei and improved LVEDP but further decreased LVPSP and dP/dt(max). These results indicate that effects on cardiac load by peripheral AT(1) receptor blockade or the pharmacokinetic profile of subcutaneous versus oral dosing do not contribute to the different cardiac effects of central versus systemic AT(1) receptor blockade post-MI.

1. The aim of this study was to establish how thromboxane receptors (TP) respond to the increase in levels of plasma thromboxane observed in both cardiac (cardiomyopathy, ischaemic heart disease and pulmonary hypertension) and vascular disease (atherosclerosis of coronary artery disease and accelerated atherosclerosis of saphenous vein grafts). 2. The agonist radioligand [(125)I]-BOP, bound rapidly to TP receptors in normal human cardiovascular tissue, displaying high affinity in left ventricle (K(D) 0.23 +/- 0.06 nM, B(max) 28.4 +/- 5.7 fmol mg(-1) protein) and reversibility with a t(1/2) of 10 min (n = five individuals +/- s.e.mean). 3. In the heart, TP receptor density in the right ventricle of primary pulmonary hypertensive buy cozaar patients were significantly increased (66.6 +/- 6 fmol mg(-1) protein) compared to non-diseased right ventricle (37.9 +/- 4.1 fmol mg(-1) protein, n = six individuals +/- s.e.mean, P<0.05). 4. In diseased vessels, TP receptor densities were significantly increased (3 fold in the intimal layer) in atherosclerotic coronary arteries, saphenous vein grafts with severe intimal thickening (n = 8-12 individuals, P<0.05) and aortic tissue (n=5 - 6 individuals, P<0.05), compared with normal vessels. 5. Losartan, tested at therapeutic doses, competed for [(125)I]-BOP binding to human vascular tissue, suggesting that some of the anti-hypertensive effects of this AT(1) receptor antagonist could also be mediated by blocking human TP receptors. 6. The differential distribution of TP receptors in the human cardiovascular system and the alteration of receptor density, accompanying the increase in endogenous thromboxane levels in cardiovascular disease, suggest that TP receptors represent a significant target for therapeutic interventions and highlights the importance for the development of novel selective antagonist for use in humans.

This was a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, placebo-controlled trial. Patients > or = 21 years of age with moderate-to-severe essential hypertension, defined as a mean trough sitting diastolic blood pressure (SiDBP) of 105 to 115 mm Hg, were randomly assigned in a 2:2:1 ratio to receive losartan 100 mg/hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg (L100/25), losartan 50 mg/hydrochlorothiazide 12.5 mg (L50/12.5), or placebo (PBO) once daily for 8 weeks buy cozaar . The primary efficacy measurement was the mean change from baseline in trough SiDBP in the L100/25 versus L50/12.5 treatment groups. Responders were defined as patients with mean trough SiDBP <90 mm Hg or a > or = 10-mm Hg decrease in mean trough SiDBP.

We evaluated the role of endogenous angiotensin II and III (ANG II and ANG III) at the rostral nucleus reticularis ventrolateralis (NRVL) in the modulation of baroreceptor reflex (BRR) response and the subtype of angiotensin receptors involved in this process. Adult male Sprague-Dawley rats anesthetized and maintained with pentobarbital sodium were used. Exogenous application of ANG II or ANG III (10, 20, or 40 pmol) by bilateral microinjection into the NRVL significantly suppressed the BRR response to transient hypertension induced by phenylephrine (5 micrograms/kg i.v.). The suppressive effect of ANG II (20 pmol) was reversed by an equimolar dose (1.6 nmol) of its peptide antagonist, [Sar1, Ile8 buy cozaar ]ANG II, and the nonpeptide antagonists for AT1 and AT2 receptors, losartan and PD-123319, respectively. On the other hand, the inhibitory action of ANG III (20 pmol) was blunted by its peptide antagonist. [Ile7]ANG III or PD-123319, but not by losartan. Blocking the endogenous activity of the angiotensins by microinjection into the bilateral NRVL of [Sar1, Ile8]ANG II, [Ile7]ANG III, or PD-123319 elicited an appreciable enhancement of the BRR response, whereas losartan produced minimal effect. These results suggest that, under physiological conditions, both endogenous ANG II and ANG III may exert a tonic inhibitory modulation on the BRR response by acting selectively on the AT2 receptors at the NRVL.

Results of our previous buy cozaar research in rats demonstrate the following: (a) Angiotensin II (Ang II) inhibits long term potentiation (LTP) in dentate granule cell-perforant path synapses and that this inhibition can be blocked by losartan, an Ang II AT1 receptor antagonist; (b) both ethanol and diazepam inhibit LTP induction and this inhibition can be blocked by losartan; (c) impairment of air righting by ethanol and diazepam (DZ) and eight-arm radial maze performance by ethanol can be blocked by pretreatment with losartan: (d) inhibition of dentate granule cell LTP by Ang II can also be prevented by pretreatment with nicotine. Therefore, it seemed reasonable to hypothesize that ethanol and diazepam impairment of air righting and maze performance might also be blocked by pretreatment with nicotine. The purpose of the present study was to determine the effects of nicotine 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, and 0.4 mg/kg subcutaneously (SC) on 2.0 g/kg ethanol per os (PO) and 1.0 and 2.0 mg/kg DZ intraperitoneally (i.p.) induced impairment of air righting; and to determine if the impaired maze performance due to 2.0 g/kg ethanol PO could be prevented by pretreatment with 0.4 mg/kg of nicotine, SC. Results confirm the hypothesis that moderate doses of ethanol, 2.0 g/kg PO, and DZ, 1.0 mg/kg i.p. impair air righting and that the impairment can be prevented by pretreatment with nicotine SC. Nicotine was not effective in blocking the 2.0 mg/kg DZ impairment of air righting. Nicotine, 0.4 mg/kg SC, prevented the impaired maze performance induced by 2.0 g/kg ethanol PO.

The 3(rd) International Symposium on Angiotensin II Antagonism was held in London February 28-March 2, 2000, and was accompanied by a number of company-sponsored symposia discussing "sartan" drugs. The advent of these angiotensin II receptor antagonists in the 1990s was welcomed with much enthusiasm owing to their reduced side effect profiles in comparison with members of other classes of antihypertensive drugs. Losartan and valsartan had previously been combined successfully with hydrochlorothiazide. A new sartan combination--candesartan cilexetil + hydrochlorothiazide--was announced during the meeting and new clinical trial data were presented. There are a number of questions that still need answers with respect to buy cozaar the role of the sartans in areas other than hypertension; help in answering at least some of these questions should be provided soon by the results of several megastudies that are currently under way.

Baseline hemoglobin concentration was correlated buy cozaar with subsequent development of ESRD. After adjustment for predictors of ESRD, the hazard ratios for the first, second, and third Hb quartiles were 1.99 (95% CI, 1.34-2.95), 1.61 (95% CI 1.08-2.41), and 1.87 (95% CI 1.25-2.80). With hemoglobin as a continuous variable, the adjusted hazard ratio was 0.90 (95% CI 0.84-0.96, P= 0.0013). The average increase in adjusted relative risk was 11% for each 1 g/dL decrease in hemoglobin concentration.

There was no difference in mean haemoglobin concentration and haematocrit between the two groups before the onset of losartan therapy. In Group B, mean haemoglobin concentration and haematocrit decreased from 137 +/- 20 g/l and 0.4 at the start of losartan therapy to 120 +/- 16 g/l (P < 0.0005) and 0.35 (P < 0.0005), respectively 3 months later. buy cozaar In Group A, neither haemoglobin nor haematocrit differed between the onset of losartan therapy and the end of the study. Serum creatinine increased from 158 mumol/l +/- 78 to 172 mumol/l +/- 80 in Group B (P < 0.005), but remained stable in Group A. Plasma protein concentrations remained stable in each group and there was no change in diuretic therapy during the study.

Camurati-Engelmann disease is characterized by hyperostosis of the long bones and the skull, muscle atrophy, severe limb pain, and progressive joint contractures in some patients. It is caused by heterozygous mutations in the transforming growth buy cozaar factor β1 (TGFβ1) believed to result in improper folding of the latency-associated peptide domain of TGFβ1 and thus in increased or deregulated bioactivity. Losartan, an angiotensin II type 1 receptor antagonist, has been found to downregulate the expression of TGFβ type 1 and 2 receptors. Clinical trials with losartan have shown a benefit in Marfan syndrome, while trials are underway for Duchenne muscular dystrophy and other myopathies associated with TGFβ1 signaling. We hypothesized that due to its anti-TGFβ1 activity, losartan might be beneficial in Camurati-Engelmann disease. This report concerns a boy who presented at age 13 years with severe limb pain and difficulty in walking. Clinical and radiographic evaluation results were compatible with Camurati-Engelmann disease and the diagnosis was confirmed by mutation analysis (c.652C > T [p.Arg218Cys]). The boy underwent an experimental treatment with losartan at a dosage of 50 mg/day, orally. During the treatment period of 18 months, the intensity and frequency of limb pain decreased significantly (as shown by a pain diary), and muscle strength improved, allowing the boy to resume walking and climbing stairs. No obvious side effects were observed. We cautiously conclude that TGFβ1 inhibition with losartan deserves further evaluation in the clinical management of Camurati-Engelmann disease.

An 87-year-old man was scheduled for cervical laminectomy. Anesthesia was maintained with nitrous oxide, oxygen, sevoflurane, and fentanyl with tracheal intubation. Thirty minutes after the start of operation, serum potassium was 7.41 mEq x l(-1). We immediately administered potassium-free fluid, furosemide, bicarbonate, calcium gluconate and insulin. We stopped the operation and returned the Zyloprim Buy Online patient to supine position, but he fell into ventricular fibrillation. Immediate CPR and countershock successfully restored sinus rhythm within 5 minutes. He was discharged from ICU without any neurological complications. Daily he took Losartan potassium, an AIIA, due to hypertension and ate preoperatively dried persimmons, a potassium-rich food. We suspect that hyperkalemia was induced by administration of an AIIA in combination with excessive intake of dried persimmons. AIIA may cause severe hyperkalemia inhibiting aldosterone activity. We should pay attention to the serum potassium level and a preoperative intake of food especially in a patient medicated with an AIIA.

The intrarenal renin-angiotensin system (RAS) plays a key role in the development of diabetic nephropathy. Recently, we showed that combination therapy with Tofranil Tablet an AT(1) receptor blocker (ARB) and an activated vitamin D analog produced excellent synergistic effects against diabetic nephropathy, as a result of blockade of the ARB-induced compensatory renin increase. Given the diversity of vitamin D analogs, here we used a pro-drug vitamin D analog, doxercalciferol (1alpha-hydroxyvitamin D(2)), to further test the efficacy of the combination strategy in long-term treatment. Streptozotocin-induced diabetic DBA/2J mice were treated with vehicle, losartan, doxercalciferol (0.4 and 0.6 microg/kg), or losartan and doxercalciferol combinations for 20 wk. Vehicle-treated diabetic mice developed progressive albuminuria and glomerulosclerosis. Losartan alone moderately ameliorated kidney injury, with renin being drastically upregulated. A similar therapeutic effect was seen with doxercalciferol alone, which markedly suppressed renin and angiotensinogen expression. The losartan and doxercalciferol combination most effectively prevented albuminuria, restored glomerular filtration barrier structure, and dramatically reduced glomerulosclerosis in a dose-dependent manner. These effects were accompanied by blockade of intrarenal renin upregulation and ANG II accumulation. These data demonstrate an excellent therapeutic potential for doxercalciferol in diabetic renal disease and confirm the concept that blockade of the compensatory renin increase enhances the efficacy of RAS inhibition and produces synergistic therapeutic effects in combination therapy.

We have recently shown that an angiotensin-(1-7) [Ang-(I-7)] analogue, D-Ala7-Ang-(1-7) (A-779), is a selective Ang-(1-7 Minipress Medicine ) antagonist with no significant action on angiotensin type 1 or type 2 receptors. The availability of selective angiotensin antagonists prompted us to evaluate the role of Ang-(1-7) and Ang II on central modulation of the baroreflex control of heart rate in normotensive Wistar rats and spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR). Blood pressure recording and reflex changes in heart rate elicited by intravenous bolus injections of phenylephrine were made before and within 1 and 3 hours of intracerebroventricular (ICV, lateral ventricle) infusion of saline (8 microL/h), A-779 (4 microg/h), DuP 753 (100 microg/h), or CGP 42112A (50 mu g/h) in conscious rats. The slope of the relationship between changes in pulse interval versus changes in mean arterial pressure was used as an index of the baroreflex control of heart rate. ICV infusion of saline or any of the antagonists did not significantly change basal levels of mean arterial pressure and heart rate in SHR (170 +/- 6 mm Hg nd 360 +/- 9 beats per minute, respectively; n = 29) or Wistar rats (108 +/- 2 mm Hg and 377 +/- 6 beats per minute, respectively; n=29). Three hours of ICV infusion of A-779 markedly decreased baroreflex sensitivity in Wistar rats (from a basal slope of 1.09 +/- O.3). In contrast, A-779 did not significantly alter the depressed baroreflex sensitivity of SHR (0.61 +/- O.l). ICV infusion of DuP 753 produced a significant increase (60 percent) in baroreflex control of heart rate in both Wistar rats and SHR. Saline or CGP 42112A infusions did not significantly alter baroreflex control of heart rate. These results suggest that endogenous Ang II and Ang-(1-7) are differentially affecting central baroreflex modulation, acting probably through distinct receptor subtypes. Although the central Ang II inhibitory effect is mediated by the type 1 receptor subtype, the facilitatory effect of Ang-(1-7) might be mediated by a different, unidentified receptor.

We found that PAME is the PVATRF, causing vasorelaxation by opening voltage-dependent K+ channels on smooth muscle cells. Diminished PAME release and its vasorelaxing activity and increased release of angiotensin II in the PVAT suggest a noble role of PVAT Flagyl Dose in pathogenesis of hypertension. The antihypertensive effect of losartan is attributed partly to its reversing diminished PAME-induced vasorelaxation.

During the past decade, the incidence of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) has risen dramatically, primarily due to an increase in the incidence of diabetes. In patients with diabetes, both hyperglycemia and hypertension are independent risk factors for renal disease. Hypertension is also a risk factor in nondiabetic renal disease and contributes to renal dysfunction by increasing glomerular pressure, glomerular capillary damage, and proteinuria. The resultant nephron damage increases glomerular pressure and damage within remnant functional nephrons, further contributing to deterioration of renal function. In addition to its role in systemic hypertension, angiotensin II has direct effects on the kidney through elevation of glomerular capillary pressure and upregulation of components of the renal injury response. These direct effects of angiotensin II on the kidney support the inclusion of agents that target the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) into treatment regimens for patients Crestor Dosage Amounts at risk for renal disease. Several clinical trials have established the benefits of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) in patients with diabetes. The ACE inhibitors have been shown to delay renal decline in patients with type 1 diabetes, whereas the renoprotective effect of these agents in patients with type 2 diabetes is less clear. The ARBs have been shown to provide significant benefits in patients with type 2 diabetes, both at early (microalbuminuria) and late (proteinuria) stages of renal decline. In the Irbesartan Diabetic Nephropathy Trial (IDNT) and the Reduction of Endpoints in NIDDM with the Angiotensin II Antagonist Losartan (RENAAL) study, ARB therapy significantly reduced the progression of overt nephropathy (composite of doubling of serum creatinine, ESRD, and death), a benefit that has not been shown for ACE inhibitors. Moreover, in RENAAL, losartan significantly reduced the incidence of the individual end point of ESRD. The benefits of ARB therapy in IDNT and RENAAL were associated with significant reductions in proteinuria and were independent of blood pressure reductions. In RENAAL, proteinuria was a strong predictor of both renal and cardiovascular events. These findings underscore the importance of RAS blockade as a strategy for improving clinical outcomes in patients with renal disease.

It is known that HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (statins) may have a therapeutic benefit in patients with heart failure (HF). However, no studies have yet evaluated the possible interaction of statins and angiotensin-II receptor blockers (ARBs) on left ventricular (LV) function in patients with HF. We hypothesized that statins might alter the effect of ARBs on cardiac function in patients with HF.

These results are consistent with the theory that Ang II has an effect on the pathophysiology of cerebrovascular lesion development in saline-drinking SHRSP. These findings indicate that losartan has a protective action, similar to that previously observed with ACE inhibitors, against the development of cerebrovascular lesions in SHRSP in the absence of a blood pressure fall.

In addition to the well-defined contribution of the liver, adipose tissue has been recognized as an important source of angiotensinogen (AGT). The purpose of this study was to define the angiotensin II (ANG II) receptors involved in regulation of adipose AGT and the relationship of this control to systemic AGT and/or angiotensin peptide concentrations. In LDL receptor-deficient (LDLR(-/-)) male mice, adipose mRNA abundance of AGT was 68% of that in liver, and adipose mRNA abundance of the angiotensin type 1a (AT(1a)) receptor (AT(1a)R) was 38% of that in liver, whereas mRNA abundance of the angiotensin type 2 (AT(2)) receptor (AT(2)R) was 57% greater in adipose tissue than in liver. AGT and angiotensin peptide concentrations were decreased in plasma of AT(1a)R-deficient (AT(1a)R(-/-)) mice and were paralleled by reductions in AGT expression in liver. In contrast, adipose AGT mRNA abundance was unaltered in AT(1a)R(-/-) mice. AT(2)R(-/-) mice exhibited elevated plasma angiotensin peptide concentrations and marked elevations in adipose AGT and AT(1a)R mRNA abundance. Increases in adipose AGT mRNA abundance in AT(2)R(-/-) mice were abolished by losartan. In contrast, liver AGT and AT(1a)R mRNA abundance were unaltered in AT(2)R(-/-) mice. Infusion of ANG II for 28 days into LDLR(-/-) mice markedly increased adipose AGT and AT(1a)R mRNA but did not alter liver AGT and AT(1a)R mRNA. These results demonstrate that differential mRNA abundance of AT(1a)/AT(2) receptors in adipose tissue vs. liver contributes to tissue-specific ANG II-mediated regulation of AGT. Chronic infusion of ANG II robustly stimulated AT(1a)R and AGT mRNA abundance in adipose tissue, suggesting that adipose tissue serves as a primary contributor to the activated systemic renin-angiotensin system.
