cozaar overdose treatment

A previously described model was used in which oxygen cycling (5 days hyperoxia and 5 days hypoxia) induced retinal alterations in newborn mice. An angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (perindopril), or angiotensin receptor antagonists AT1 (losartan) or AT2 (PD123319) were administered subcutaneously for 5 days after the hyperoxia exposure. According to histologic methods, the endothelial cell count within the anterior part of the ganglion cell layer was used for the evaluation of the compound effect.

Contralateral non-ischemic kidneys displayed increased expression of platelet-derived growth factor-B (PDGF-B) in association with increased tubular cell proliferation. Gene expression for the macrophage chemokine osteopontin (OPN) was similarly increased along with substantial macrophage infiltration. In the heart, expression of OPN and macrophage numbers were increased. All of these changes, in both the heart and kidney were attenuated by losartan.

In patients considered ineligible for heart transplantation because of high PVR, bosentan therapy significantly reduced PVR. These data suggest that therapy with endothelin-receptor blockers might be useful to identify a subgroup of patients with high PVR who can benefit from heart transplantation.

These studies indicate that the predominant mechanism of hypertension, at least in the acute phase, after acute nitric oxide synthase blockade with L-NAME is associated with a marked increase in ETA/ETB receptor activation rather than with increases in alpha 1, AT1 and V1/V2 receptor activation. It remains to be determined whether endothelin participates also in the chronic phase of nitric oxide-deficient hypertension.

Blood pressures were reduced similarly in the two treatment groups. After 3 years, MFVR was increased (3.7 versus 3.2 mmHg x min x 100, P < 0.05) and M/IG decreased (8.6 versus 12.1 l/kg x mmol x min, P < 0.05) in patients treated with atenolol, whereas MFVR and M/IG were unchanged (3.5 versus 3.5 mmHg x min x 100 and 12.6 versus 11.1 l/kg x mmol x min, both P = NS) in patients treated with losartan. As compared to atenolol, losartan treatment was associated with less increase in MFVR (4.3 versus 27%, P < 0.05) and less decrease in M/IG (24 versus -14%, P < 0.01). The relative change in M/IG was inversely associated with the relative change in MFVR (r = -0.16, P < 0.05) independently of the relative change in body mass index (r = -0.29, P < 0.001).

Hearts isolated from male transgenic ((mREN-2)27) hypertensive (TGH) rats, and their normotensive controls (Hannover Sprague-Dawley; SD rats), were perfused at constant flow using the Langendorff technique, and were subjected to either ischaemic preconditioning (3 x 4 min ischaemia) or continuous perfusion. Global ischaemia was then induced for 30 min, followed by 60 min of reperfusion, during which time mechanical performance was assessed (left ventricular developed pressure (LVDP), heart rate, and end-diastolic pressure).

ACE inhibitors (ACEIs) improve insulin resistance and prevent type 2 diabetes, possibly mediated by inhibition of bradykinin (BK) degradation. The vasopeptidase inhibitor omapatrilat (OMA) raises BK to a greater extent than ACEIs by dual enzyme inhibition, whereas its insulin-sensitizing effects and mechanisms have not been investigated.

(1) The kidney tissue injury in the chronic AAN model group was apparent, compared to the normal structure in the normal control group, and the Cozaar group showed relieved injury. (2) The expression of caspase-3 in the model group was elevated, while expressions of BMP-7 and CD34 were decreased (p < 0.05). Cozaar lessened caspase-3 expression (p < 0.05) and promoted BMP-7 and CD34 expressions (p < 0.05). (3) Real-time PCR demonstrated a downregulation of Ang-1, Tie-2, BMP-7, and VEGF mRNA (p < 0.05) and an upregulation of Ang-2 mRNA (p < 0.01) in the renocortex, while Cozaar upregulated the expression of Ang-1, Tie-2, BMP-7, and VEGF mRNA (p < 0.05).

Persistence or development of new ECG LVH during antihypertensive therapy is associated with an increased risk of left ventricular systolic dysfunction after 3 years' follow-up. These findings provide insight into a possible mechanism by which changes in ECG LVH are associated with the changing risk of developing heart failure.

The contractile actions of the proteinase-activated receptor-2-activating peptides (PAR2APs), SLIGRL-NH2 (SL-NH2), SLIGKV-NH2 (KV-NH2), trans-cinnamoyl-LIGRLO-NH2 (tc-NH2), and the PAR1-AP. TFLLR-NH2 (TF-NH2) as well as trypsin and thrombin were studied in endothelium-denuded and intact human umbilical vein (HUV) ring preparations. In HUV rings with, but not without an intact endothelium, PAR2APs caused a concentration-dependent contractile response, whereas LSIGRL-NH2 trypsin and PAR1APs were inactive. The contractile response was not affected by the endothelin ETA receptor antagonist, BQ123, the cyclooxygenase inhibitor, indomethacin, the leukotriene synthesis inhibitor, MK886, or the epoxygenase/P450 inhibitor, SKF-525A. Other pharmacological antagonists (prazosin, Losartan") were similarly inactive. The order of potencies of the PAR2APs to cause a contraction in the endothelium-intact preparation was: SL-NH2 > > KV-NH2 > or = tc-NH2. Using an endothelium-free rat aorta ring as a reporter tissue, surrounded with endothelium-intact HUV as a donor tissue in a 'sandwich assay,' we also monitored the ability of SL-NH2, TF-NH2, trypsin and thrombin to release either contractile (EDCF) or relaxant (EDRF) factors. In the 'sandwich assay' done in the presence of L-NAME (0.1 mM), the endothelium-intact HUV tissue (but not endothelium-denuded HUV) released a contractile factor (EDCF) in response to SL-NH2 (50 microM) but not to trypsin or LSIGRL-NH2. The SL-NH2-mediated release/action of the EDCF was not affected by BQ123, indomethacin, MK886 or SKF-525A. In the 'sandwich assay', trypsin (4-10 nM), SL-NH2, KV-NH2 and tc-NH2 caused the release of a relaxant activity (EDRF) from the endothelium-intact (but not the denuded) HUV preparation. The release of EDRF was blocked by 0.1 mM (omega)nitro-L-arginine-methylester (L-NAME). Neither thrombin (10 u ml(-1), 100 nM) nor TF-NH2 (50 microM) were active in this EDRF-release assay. The relative potencies of the PAR2 agonists for causing the release of EDRF in the HUV sandwich assay were: trypsin> >SL-NH2> >tc-NH2>KV-NH2. This order of potencies differed from the one observed for the same agonists in the HUV contraction assay (above) and in an intracellular calcium signalling assay, conducted with cloned human PAR2 that was expressed in cultured rat kidney KNRK cells: trypsin > > SL-NH2 = tc-NH2 > KV-NH2. We conclude that PAR2APs (but not PAR1APs) via a receptor distinct from PAR2, can cause a contractile response in endothelium-intact HUV tissue via the release of a diffusable EDCF, that is different from previously recognized smooth muscle agonists (e.g. prostanoid metabolites, endothelin, noradrenaline, angiotensin-II, acetylcholine).

Proteinuria may cause a worsening of accompanying renal disease or even lead to glomerulosclerosis. There is no data about the effect of carvedilol on patients with proteinuric (>0.5 g/day) glomerulonephritis. This study aimed to compare the effects of carvedilol with ramipril and losartan in patients with proteinuric glomerulonephritis.

A 77-year-old woman presented to the emergency department with a 2-day history of nausea and vomiting. Her medical history included diabetes mellitus, hypertension, atrial fibrillation, dilated cardiomyopathy, and coronary artery disease. Her home medications included aspirin, clopidogrel, warfarin, digoxin, metoprolol, losartan, simvastatin, isosorbide dinitrate, furosemide, and spironolactone. Initial physical examination showed blood pressure of 170/80 mm Hg with a heart rate of 69 beats per minute, otherwise unremarkable. Initial laboratory workup was significant for INR of 3.6, with slightly elevated troponin I and creatinine of 0.06 ng/mL and 1.4 mg/dL, respectively. The patient was admitted to the medicine floor. However, a few hours later, her atrial fibrillation went into rapid ventricular response, associated with hypotension. Cardiac enzymes began to trend up along with worsening of her renal function tests and hepatic enzymes. Her INR remained supratherapeutic despite holding coumadin and giving vitamin K. The patient was transferred to the medical intensive care unit for closer monitoring. During day 1 of the medical intensive care unit stay, losartan, simvastatin, and diuretics were held, whereas aspirin, clopidogrel, and isosorbide dinitrate were continued. In the following 2 days, there was worsening of tissue perfusion, and laboratory workup showed AST 514 IU/L, ALT 391 IU/L, INR >9, creatinine 3.8 mg/dL, and troponin I 0.19 ng/mL; therefore, digoxin was also held. Once the patient achieved hemodynamic stability, she was started on hydralazine. On day 4, renal function, cardiac, and hepatic enzymes improved significantly. However, 24 hours later, transaminases began to trend up again reaching a maximum of AST and ALT of 359 and 525 IU/L, respectively. Other possible causes were ruled out because her viral hepatitis markers, antihistone antibody, antinuclear antibody, and anti-double-stranded DNA were all negative. After thorough review of all medications, hydralazine was held with subsequent improvement in transaminases. The patient was seen a month later after her discharge, and all her laboratory workup improved to baseline.

The inhibition of the renin-angiotensin system and of the 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A reductase could improve hepatic steatosis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of losartan or amlodipine alone or combined with simvastatin on hepatic steatosis degree, and on insulin sensitivity in normocholesterolemic, hypertensive patients with nonalcoholic hepatic steatosis.

With the application of early reperfusion therapy after acute MI, the incidence and importance of nontransmural infarction is increasing. In a rat model with nontransmural infarction, we evaluated 1) the changes of LV dimension, LV interstitial fibrosis and transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1) mRNA expression and 2) the effects of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor and angiotensin II type 1 (AT1) receptor antagonist treatment. Female Sprague-Dawley rats were subjected to 45 min of coronary occlusion followed by reperfusion, and five days after the operation the animals were randomized to untreated (n = 19), captopril-treated (n = 15) and losartan-treated (n = 14) groups. Twenty-six days after MI, echocardiographic examination revealed a remarkable dilatation of LV. Captopril or losartan treatment reduced the extent of LV cavity dilatation. Collagen volume fractions in noninfarcted septum as well as in peri-infarct area decreased with captopril or losartan treatment, compared to those of the untreated rats. In noninfarcted septum of untreated rats, TGF-beta1 mRNA expression increased more than two fold (P < 0.05 vs. pre-MI) 5 and 10 days after MI. Captopril or losartan treatment suppressed the acute induction of TGF-beta1 mRNA expressions. These results indicate that ACE inhibitor or AT1 receptor antagonist treatment after nontransmural infarction 1) attenuates LV remodeling as in transmural infarction and 2) decreases interstitial fibrosis at least partly by blocking the acute induction of TGF-beta1 mRNA expression.

Rapidly aging Ercc1d/- mice display an activated intrarenal RAS, as evidenced by the increased fluorescence detected with the ReninSense 680™ probe. This increased RAS activity may contribute to the disturbed kidney pathology in these mice. The increased intrarenal activity detected with the ReninSense 680™ probe in male vs. female mice, as well as after losartan treatment, are in full agreement with the literature, and thus not only validate the specificity of the probe, but also support its use for longitudinal imaging of altered RAS signaling in aging.

To test the hypothesis that endothelin (ET) and nitric oxide (NO) interact in modulating the sympathetic nervous system in conscious rats, as they do in the endothelium, mean arterial pressure (MAP), heart rate, and renal sympathetic nerve activity (RSNA) were recorded in Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) and spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) given losartan and compared before and during intravenous infusion of an NO synthase inhibitor, L-NMMA (0.25 mg/kg/min). The slope of the relation between RSNA and MAP to blood pressure reduction was increased in the presence of L-NMMA (from 0.6 +/- 0.1 to 2.8 +/- 0.2), suggesting that endogenous NO suppresses the reflex increase in RSNA. Since NO inhibits ET production in the endothelium, we speculated that the increase in MAP-RSNA slope was due partly to an unmasking of ET, and thus recorded MAP, heart rate, and RSNA during intravenous infusions of both L-NMMA and the ET-type-A-receptor antagonist BQ-485 (0.10 mg/kg/min). The slope decreased significantly in SHR when BQ-485 was added (1.5 +/- 0.2), but not in WKY, implying that unmasked ET enhanced the sympathetic increase via ETA receptors in hypertensive rats. An ETB-receptor antagonist potentiated the sympathetic response only in WKY rats. These results suggest that NO suppressed the reflex increase in RSNA to blood pressure reduction, while ET uncovered by L-NMMA enhanced the sympatho-activation, indicating an interaction between ET and NO in modulating the sympathetic nervous system in conscious hypertensive animals in vivo. In contrast, the interaction was not observed in normotensive rats.

There are many methods to screen for abnormal amounts of proteinuria to identify patients at risk for progression of renal disease, but which method best predicts renal risk is unknown. Here, we analyzed a subset of 701 patients with type 2 diabetes and nephropathy participating in the Reduction of Endpoints in Non Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus with the Angiotensin II Antagonist Losartan (RENAAL) trial to compare the ability of urinary protein excretion (UPE) and urinary albumin excretion (UAE) from a 24-hour urine collection and urinary albumin concentration (UAC) and the albumin:creatinine ratio (ACR) from a first-morning void in predicting renal events. The primary outcome measure was the time to a doubling of serum creatinine or end-stage renal disease. During follow-up, 202 events occurred. The hazard ratios for the risk of a renal outcome (95% CIs) associated with 1-SD increment in the log-transformed measures were 3.16 (2.60 to 3.86) for UAE, 3.02 (2.53 to 3.62) for UPE, 3.23 (2.67 to 3.91) for UAC, and 4.36 (3.50 to 5.45) for ACR. The area under the ROC curve was significantly higher for ACR compared with the other measures. In conclusion, measurement of the albumin:creatinine ratio in a first-morning void is the superior method to predict renal events in patients with type 2 diabetes and nephropathy.

Ang II induced migration of SHR-AFs was markedly increased in a dose-dependent manner when compared with WKY-AFs. Addition of the Ang II receptor type-1 (AT1-R) antagonist Losartan and P38 MAPK inhibitor SB202190 suppressed Ang II-induced migration of SHR-AFs. Ang II could induce P38 MAPK phosphorylation in SHR-AFs in a time-and dose-dependent manner. Phosphorylation of P38 MAPK was suppressed by Losartan and SB202190.

Increased ACE and AT(1) mRNA expression was found buy cozaar online in cortex and medulla of LP compared to NP rats. AT(1) receptor binding density was significantly reduced in renal cortex and inner stripe of the outer medulla of LP compared to NP rats. Minimal radioligand binding was shown in inner medulla of LP. Whole kidney expression of angiotensinogen was unaltered in LP. H(+)-ATPase activity significantly decreased in IMCDs and OMCDs of LP. The inhibitory effect of LP was abolished when OMCD segments were incubated for 60 min in the presence of losartan 10(-6) to 10(-8)M. There was no effect of losartan concentrations from 10(-6) to 10(-8) M on IMCDs. Similar results were observed on H(+)-ATPase activity in OMCD and IMCD segments after readministration of 24% protein in the diet.

Profilin-1, a regulator of actin polymerization, has recently been linked to vascular hypertrophy and remodeling. Whether profilin-1 is involved in angiotensin (Ang) II-induced proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells leading to vascular remodeling in hypertension remains unclear. The present study was designed to analyze the correlation of profilin-1 and vascular remodeling during hypertension and to evaluate the role of profilin-1 in proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells and the underlying mechanisms. The vascular morphology and the expression of profilin-1 in arterial tissues of spontaneously hypertensive rats and Wistar-Kyoto rats were assessed. The profilin-1 expression was significantly increased concomitantly with definite vascular remodeling by evaluating the media thickness, lumen diameter, media thickness-to-lumen diameter ratio and mean nuclear area in artery media in spontaneously hypertensive rats, which was inhibited by treatment with losartan. In cultured rat aortic smooth muscle cells (RASMCs), Ang II induced profilin-1 expression in a dose- and time-dependent manner. Knockdown of profilin-1 using small hairpin RNA inhibited Ang II-induced proliferation of RASMCs. Moreover, blockade of JAK2/STAT3 signaling pathway also inhibited Ang II-induced proliferation of RASMCs and profilin-1 expression. These results suggest that profilin-1 mediates the proliferation of RASMCs induced by Ang II via activation of Ang II type 1 buy cozaar online receptor/JAK2/STAT3 signaling pathway, which may contribute to vascular remodeling in hypertension.

The presence of angiotensin II receptors was found on cells of three colorectal carcinoma cell lines. The binding assays with 125I-labelled angiotensin II and ligands specific for angiotensin AT1 or AT2 receptors showed that angiotensin receptors on colorectal cancer cells are mostly of the AT2 type. The binding capacity of tumor cells was not significantly changed by butyrate buy cozaar online -induced differentiation.

Receptor-binding studies revealed that the buy cozaar online AT1 receptor predominated on vascular smooth muscle cells. Incubation of quiescent cells with 0.1 mumol/l angiotensin II resulted in a 65% increase in total [3H]-inositol phosphates released compared with unstimulated cells and in a rapid accumulation of c-fos messenger RNA (mRNA). Pre-incubation of the cells with 10(-5) mol/l PD 123319 had no effect on either total inositol phosphates release or c-fos mRNA induction. Both responses, however, were totally abolished by pre-incubation of the cells with 10(-5) mol/l losartan or saralasin.

The aim of this study was to characterize the angiotensin II receptors in isolated uterine arteries from non pregnant and pregnant rats, since it has been reported from binding studies that ovine uterine arteries contain AT2 receptors. Uterine arterial segments were obtained from virgin, non-pregnant and late pregnant (18-21 days) Sprague-Dawley rats and mounted in small vessel myographs. Concentration-response curves were constructed to angiotensin II (1 nM-10 microM) in the absence and presence of various angiotensin II receptor subtype selective compounds. These included losartan (AT1 antagonist; 1, 10 and 100 nM), PD 123319 (AT2 antagonist; 1 microM) and CGP 42112 (AT2 agonist; 1 microM). Responses to angiotensin II were buy cozaar online measured as increases in force (mN) and expressed as a per cent of the response to a K+ depolarizing solution. Losartan (1, 10 and 100 nM) caused significant concentration-dependent rightward shifts of the angiotensin II concentration-response curve in uterine arteries from non-pregnant and pregnant rats. The pA2 values calculated from these data were 9.8 and 9.2, respectively, although the slope of the Schild plot in the non-pregnant group was less than unity. PD 123319 (1 microM) caused significant 6- and 3 fold leftward shifts of the angiotensin II concentration-response curve in uterine arteries from non-pregnant and pregnant rats, respectively. In vessels from pregnant rats, PD 123319 also significantly increased the maximum response to angiotensin II. CGP 42112 (1 microM) attenuated the response to angiotensin II of uterine arteries from non-pregnant rats. This was reflected by a 14 fold rightward shift of the angiotensin II concentration-response curve and a decrease in the maximum response. In uterine arteries from pregnant rats, CGP 42112 (1 microM) caused a 3 fold rightward shift of the angiotensin II concentration-response curve, but had no effect on the maximum response. PD 123319 (1 microM) and CGP 42112 (1 microM) had no effect on the concentration-response curves to phenylephrine (PE) of uterine arteries from non-pregnant or pregnant rats. In addition, CGP 42112 (1 nM-1 mM) had no vasodilator effect on tissues precontracted with phenylephrine. These results suggest that the contractile responses of the rat uterine artery are mediated by the AT1 receptor. Furthermore, in this vascular preparation, the AT2 receptor appears to inhibit the response mediated by the AT1 receptor, although, this is not uniform between the non-pregnant and pregnant states.

In order to achieve target blood pressure levels to prevent cardiovascular disease, combination therapy of antihypertensive drugs is often required, although it is thought that requiring a patient to take many different pills would reduce adherence to the medication regimen. Whether antihypertensive treatment with a single pill combining antihypertensive drugs would improve buy cozaar online medication adherence and blood pressure control was investigated.

We showed previously that vascular smooth muscle cells (VMSC) from spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) exhibit increased proliferation. The present study was undertaken to examine whether the enhanced levels of endogenous angiotensin (ANG) II and endothelin (ET)-1 contribute to the enhanced proliferation of VSMC from SHR and to further investigate the underlying mechanisms responsible for this response. The enhanced proliferation of VSMC from SHR compared with Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rats was attenuated by losartan, BQ-123, BQ-788, and AG-1478, inhibitors of AT(1), ET(A), ET(B) and epidermal growth factor (EGF-R) receptors, respectively. In addition, BQ-123 and BQ-788 also attenuated the enhanced production of superoxide anion (O(2)(-)) and NADPH oxidase activity. Furthermore, diphenyleneiodonium (DPI, inhibitor of NADPH oxidase), N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC, O(2)(-) scavenger), and PP2 (inhibitor of c-Src) also inhibited the augmented proliferation of VSMC from SHR to WKY levels. In addition, the enhanced phosphorylation of EGF-R in VSMC from SHR compared with WKY was also attenuated by inhibitors of AT(1), ET(A), ET(B buy cozaar online ), and EGF-R but not by inhibitors of platelet-derived growth factor receptor or insulin-like growth factor receptor. Furthermore, the enhanced phosphorylation of ERK1/2 in VSMC from SHR was also attenuated by AT(1), ET(A), ET(B), c-Src, and EGF-R inhibitors. The phosphorylation of c-Src was significantly augmented in VSMC from SHR compared with VSMC from WKY and was attenuated by DPI and NAC. These data suggest that endogenous vasoactive peptides, through increased oxidative stress and resultant activation of c-Src, transactivate EGF-R, which through mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase signaling may contribute to the hyperproliferation of VSMC from SHR.

The aim of this study was to analyse the effect of angiotensin convertase inhibitor, enalapril (ENA), and angiotensin AT-1 receptor antagonist, losartan potassium (LP), on lipid peroxidation and activities of Cu,Zn-superoxide dismutase, catalase and glutathione peroxidase in kidneys of streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rats after 6 and 12 weeks of treatment. STZ-induced body weight changes and blood glucose concentration were not affected by either ENA or LP but both drugs significantly decreased cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations elevated in buy cozaar online diabetic rats, inhibited kidney weight gain, and decreased albuminuria. Kidneys of STZ-diabetic rats had increased malondialdehyde content and decreased activities of antioxidant enzymes (Cu,Zn-superoxide dismutase, catalase and glutathione peroxidase). Both ENA and LP decreased lipid peroxidation and augmented the activities of antioxidant enzymes studied in the kidneys of diabetic rats. These results confirm the role of oxidative stress in the development of diabetic nephropathy already at early stages of the development of diabetes and point to the possible antioxidative mechanism of the nephroprotective action of ENA and LP.

We investigated botanical drug-pharmaceutical drug interactions between DW1029M (a botanical extract of Morus alba linne root bark and Puerariae radix) and metformin, losartan, and linagliptin in the steady state. Three studies were conducted as randomized, open-label, 2-period, 2-treatment, multiple-dose, 2-way crossover designs. Eligible subjects received metformin (500 mg twice daily), losartan (50 mg once daily), or linagliptin (5 mg once daily) with DW1029M (300 mg × 2T twice daily) every 12 hours on days 1 through 6 and a single dose on the morning of day 7. Coadministration of DW1029M with metformin, losartan, or linagliptin had no clinically relevant effects based on the area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUCτ ) geometric least-squares mean ratio (GMR) - AUCτ GMR, 89.7; 90% confidence interval (CI), 81.0-99.4 for metformin; AUCτ GMR, 96.2; 90%CI, 86.3-107.1 for losartan; and AUCτ buy cozaar online GMR, 89.7; 90%CI, 83.2-96.6 for linagliptin. In addition, coadministration of DW1029M did not have any clinically meaningful effect on the maximum plasma concentration (Cmax,ss ) - Cmax,ss GMR, 87.3; 90%CI, 76.2-100.0 for metformin; Cmax,ss GMR, 90.5; 90%CI, 78.3-104.6 for losartan; and Cmax,ss GMR, 81.4; 90%CI, 69.5-95.3 for linagliptin. Coadministration of DW1029M with metformin, losartan, or linagliptin was well tolerated.

Losartan, irbesartan, eprosartan, and candesartan at doses of 5, 40, 20, and 0.05 mg/kg per day, were equally effective in reducing basal systolic blood pressure (-42 mmHg), and the vasopressor potency of angiotensin II (approximately 10-fold). The efficacies of preganglionic stimulation and exogenous noradrenaline were unaltered, with the exception of irbesartan, which Suprax Pediatric Dosage reduced vascular noradrenaline sensitivity. The tripled dose of candesartan further reduced basal and angiotensin II-stimulated blood pressures, and significantly attenuated vascular noradrenaline sensitivity.

We investigated the tolerability and angiotensin II antagonist activity of oral DuP 532 in healthy male subjects. DuP 532 (1 to 200 mg) was well tolerated, with no effect on blood pressure or heart rate. Compared with losartan (100 mg), DuP 532 (200 mg) was a weak antagonist of pressor responses to intravenous angiotensin II. Maximum inhibition of diastolic pressor response was 86% (95% confidence interval [CI], 84%, 88%) approximately 4.6 hours after losartan and 48% (95% CI, 38%, 56%) 8.7 hours after DuP 532. Twenty-four hours after dosing, inhibition by losartan and DuP 532 was similar (40% to 45%). DUP Inderal Tablets 10mg 532 is extensively bound in human plasma, with an in vitro free fraction of 0.06. Although DuP 532 and EXP3174 (losartan's active metabolite) have similar AT1-receptor potency, and plasma concentrations of DuP 532 were much greater than losartan/EXP3174, the level of antagonism was much less for DuP 532. These results indicate that multiple factors determine the in vivo potency of angiotensin II antagonists, including affinity for and distribution to the receptor as modulated by plasma binding.

1. We investigated the effects of losartan and captopril on noradrenaline (NA) release and vascular reactivity to NA in the pithed rat. 2. The pressor responses to sympathetic nerve stimulation (SNS) before and after i.v. administration of captopril (1 mg/kg), losartan (1 and 10 mg/kg), sodium nitroprusside (SNP: 5 micrograms/kg per min), losartan (1 mg/kg)+captopril (1 mg/kg), captopril (1 mg/kg) + losartan (1 mg/kg) or the bradykinin B2 receptor antagonist HOE 140 (1 mg/kg)+captopril (1 mg/kg) were measured. Plasma NA concentrations were measured during 60 s SNS before and after losartan (1 mg/kg), captopril (1 mg/kg), SNP (5 micrograms/kg per min) or HOE 140 (1 mg/kg)+captopril (1 mg/kg). Pressor Geodon 50 Mg responses to exogenous NA were measured before and after administration of losartan (1 mg/kg), captopril (1 mg/kg), HOE 140 (1 mg/kg) + captopril (1 mg/kg) or the nitric oxide synthase (NO) inhibitor, NG-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME; 10 mg/kg) + captopril (1 mg/kg). 3. Captopril, losartan and SNP decreased frequency-response curves to a similar extent. The captopril-induced decrease in pressor responses to SNS was restored by pretreatment with HOE140. Adding captopril to losartan decreased the curve more than did adding losartan to captoprill. Both losartan, captopril and HOE 140 + captopril significantly decreased the plasma NA concentration after SNS (34.1 +/- 5.0, 27.4 +/- 2.6 and 41.4 +/- 8.1%, respectively). Sodium nitroprusside did not change the plasma NA concentration after SNS (3.8 +/- 28.2%). The dose-response curves to i.v. NA were not affected by losartan, but were significantly decreased by captopril. However, responses to NA that were reduced by captopril were restored to control values by pretreatment with HOE 140 or L-NAME. 4. We suggest that both losartan and captopril decrease pressor responses to SNS by inhibiting NA release from sympathetic nerve endings; however, captopril also decreases 'vascular reactivity' to NA, which is mediated by nitric oxide produced by activation of the bradykinin B2 receptors.

The Losartan Heart Failure ELITE Study recently found that in patients with symptomatic heart failure and a left ventricular ejection fraction of /=65 years with symptomatic heart failure. Data on health care resource utilization were collected as part of the trial. We conducted a cost-effectiveness analysis to estimate the lifetime benefits of treatment and the associated costs. We observed no differences between treatments in the number of hospitalizations, hospital days, and emergency room visits per patient over the trial period. We estimated the total cost of losartan to be USD 54 (95% CI: USD -1,717, USD 1,755) less per patient than captopril over this time frame. We also estimated that over the projected remaining lifetime of the study population, losartan compared to captopril would increase survival by 0.20 years (undiscounted) at an average cost of USD 769 (discounted) more per patient. This cost increase translated into a cost-effectiveness ratio of USD 4,047 per year of life gained for losartan relative to captopril. In patients with symptomatic heart failure, losartan compared to captopril increased survival with better tolerability at a cost well within the range accepted as cost-effective.

Drug loading into porous carriers may improve drug release of poorly water-soluble drugs. However, the widely used impregnation method based on adsorption lacks reproducibility and efficiency for certain compounds. The aim of this study was to evaluate a drug-loading method based on solvent evaporation and crystallization, and to investigate the underlying drug-loading mechanisms. Functionalized calcium carbonate (FCC) microparticles and four drugs with different solubility and permeability properties were selected as model substances to investigate drug loading. Ibuprofen, nifedipine, losartan potassium, and metronidazole benzoate were dissolved in acetone or methanol. After dispersion of FCC, the solvent was removed under reduced pressure. For each model drug, a series of drug loads were produced ranging from 25% to 50% (w/w) in steps of 5% (w/w). Loading efficiency was qualitatively analyzed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) using the presence of agglomerates and drug crystals as indicators of poor loading efficiency. The particles were further characterized by mercury porosimetry, specific surface area measurements, differential scanning calorimetry, and USP2 dissolution. Drug concentration was determined by HPLC. FCC-drug mixtures containing equivalent drug fractions but without specific loading strategy served as reference samples. SEM analysis revealed high efficiency of pore filling up to a drug load of 40% (w/w). Above this, agglomerates and separate crystals were significantly increased, indicating that the maximum capacity of drug loading was reached. Intraparticle porosity and specific surface area were decreased after drug loading because of pore filling and crystallization on the pore surface. HPLC quantification of drugs taken up by FCC showed only minor drug loss. Dissolution rate of FCC loaded with metronidazole benzoate and nifedipine was faster than the corresponding FCC-drug mixtures, mainly due to surface enlargement, because only small fractions of amorphous drug (12.5%, w/w, and 8.9%, w/w, respectively) were found by thermal analysis. Combination of qualitative SEM analysis and HPLC quantification was sufficient to proof the feasibility of the solvent-evaporation method for the loading of various drugs into FCC. Mechanistic investigation revealed that a high specific surface area of the carrier is required to facilitate heterogeneous nucleation, and large pore sizes (up to 1 μm) are beneficial to reduce crystallization pressures and allow drug deposition within the pores. The solvent-evaporation method allows precise drug loading and appears to be suitable for scale-up.

Paeoniae Radix (PR) is a commonly used traditional Chinese medicine. A slight effect of PR on the pharmacokinetics of phenytoin that is mainly metabolised by CYP2C9 has been reported. The aim of this pilot study was to clarify if PR has an effect on losartan oxidation used as a measure of CYP2C9 activity. Three healthy volunteers received a single oral dose of losartan before and after PR treatment. Losartan and E-3174, an active metabolite of losartan, were analysed in 8 hour urine. PR did not seem to have an effect on CYP2C9 activity when the losartan/E-3174 ratios were compared before and after PR treatment (P = 0.56) although a larger study would need to be undertaken to confirm this finding.

The effects of human recombinant CRP (0 to 100 microg/mL) on AT1-R transcript, mRNA stability, and protein expression were studied in cultured human VSM cells. AT1-R binding was assessed with 125I-labeled angiotensin II (Ang II). VSM migration was assessed with wound cell migration assays, whereas VSM proliferation was determined with [3H]-incorporation and cell number. The effects of CRP (and losartan) on Ang II-induced ROS production were evaluated by 2',7'-dichlorofluorescein fluorescence. Lastly, the effects of CRP (and losartan) on neointimal formation, VSM cell migration, proliferation, and matrix formation were studied in vivo in a rat carotid artery balloon injury model. CRP markedly upregulated AT1-R mRNA and protein expression and increased AT1-R number on VSM cells. CRP promoted VSM migration and proliferation in vitro and increased ROS production. Furthermore, CRP potentiated the effects of Ang II on these processes. In the rat carotid artery angioplasty model, exposure to CRP resulted in an increase in cell migration and proliferation, collagen and elastin content, and AT1-R expression, as well as an increase in neointimal formation; these effects were attenuated by losartan.

In the presence of sex hormones, intraventricular injection of angiotensin II in female rats increases luteinizing hormone (LH) secretion, and this response is blocked by intraventricular losartan. There is evidence that in doses of 3 mg/kg or more systemically administered losartan blocks brain as well as peripheral AT1 angiotensin II receptors. Therefore, we tested the effect of intravenous losartan, 1 and 10 mg/kg, on the LH response to intraventricular angiotensin II in ovariectomized rats treated with estrogen and progesterone. The larger dose of losartan abolished the LH response. It also produced a marked reduction in the drinking response to intraventricular angiotensin II. The data provide additional evidence that in larger doses, peripherally administered losartan can penetrate the brain, and support the hypothesis that in female rats, the brain renin-angiotensin system plays an excitatory role in the regulation of LH secretion.
