We examined PICP levels in 115 patients with hypertensive LVH, 38 with hypertension but no hypertrophy, and 38 normotensive subjects. Patients with LVH were subsequently randomly assigned to the angiotensin II type 1 receptor blocker irbesartan or the beta1 receptor blocker atenolol for 48 weeks. Diastolic function was evaluated by tissue velocity echocardiography (n=134). We measured basal septal wall velocities of early (Em) and late (Am) diastolic myocardial wall motion, Em velocity deceleration time (E-decm), and isovolumic relaxation time (IVRTm).

Incubation of HMC in HG resulted in a 1.6-fold increase in Ang I (p < 0.05) and a 1.4-fold increase in Ang II levels (p < 0.05) in cell lysates. These changes were accompanied by a >2-fold increase in O2* accumulation (p < 0.01), which was inhibited by losartan and irbesartan. Exogenous Ang II increased net O2* accumulation by 2.7-fold (p < 0.01), which was normalized by losartan and irbesartan. DPI and apocynin blocked the HG and Ang II-induced increases in O2* (p < 0.01). HG but not exogenous Ang II inhibited total SOD activity by 30%, which was not affected by losartan.

Treatment with irbesartan in patients with concomitant hypertension and type 2 diabetes led to large blood pressure reductions. In view of the renoprotective effect documented by the reduced rate of patients with albuminuria, and the improvement of further metabolic parameters, these changes translate into a reduction of cardiovascular risk.

Irbesartan is a long-acting angiotensin II antagonist acting specifically at the level of the Type 1-receptor subtype (AT1-receptor). This compound lowers blood pressure dose-dependently in hypertensive patients and has a placebo-like tolerability. The antihypertensive efficacy of irbesartan is greatly enhanced by the coadministration of a diuretic, and fixed-dose combinations of irbesartan and hydrochlorothiazide are now available. Irbesartan-based treatment appears especially effective for high-risk patients, such as those with diabetes, renal disease and cardiac hypertrophy. In patients with Type 2 diabetes, irbesartan delays the development of nephropathy as well as the progression of renal failure. Irbesartan may have antiatherosclerotic properties beyond those expected from blood pressure lowering per se: this AT1-blocker decreases the vascular oxidative stress and prevents the procoagulant as well as the pro-inflammatory effects of angiotensin II. Irbesartan given alone or in combination with a diuretic therefore represents a rational approach to treat hypertensive patients.

For a given decrease in blood pressure, aliskiren improves coronary endothelial function and decreases cardiac hypertrophy in SHR to at least the same degree as ACE inhibition and AT1 receptor blockade. In addition, aliskiren diminishes the enhanced Ang II response in the coronary circulation of SHR and offers superior long-term cardiac angiotensin suppression.

Observed stroke rates for those with a CHADS(2)=1 were 1.25% per year on C+A and 0.43% per year on OAC (RR=2.96, 95% CI: 1.26 to 6.98, P=0.01). Among patients with a CHADS(2)>1, the stroke rates were 3.15% per year on C+A and 2.01% per year on OAC (RR=1.58, 95% CI: 1.11 to 2.24, P=0.01) (P for interaction between stroke risk category and efficacy of OAC=0.19). The risk of major bleeding during OAC was significantly lower among patients with CHADS(2)=1 (1.36% per year) compared with CHADS(2)>1 (2.75% per year) (RR=0.49, 95% CI 0.30 to 0.79, P=0.003).

The rate of achieving blood pressure goal between 2 groups was similar at the 4th, 8th, 12th and 24th weeks respectively (42.9% vs. 62.0% at 4th week, 89.8% vs. 90.0% at 8th week, 93.9% vs. 94.0% at 12th week, 98.0% vs. 96.0% at 24th week, P > 0.05). Compared to baseline, scores for the items related to "desire" and "arousal" were significantly improved (P < 0.05), the level of the serum estradiol was significantly elevated [(50.3 ± 37.4) pg/L vs. (54.4 ± 10.8) pg/L before menopause, (18.4 ± 2.9) pg/L vs. (20.2 ± 3.1)pg/L after menopause, P < 0.05] and the level of the serum testosterone was significantly decreased [(722.8 ± 277.1) ng/L vs. (650.0 ± 156.0) ng/L before menopause, (841.2 ± 279.3) ng/L vs. (761.9 ± 197.8) ng/L after menopause, P < 0.05] in the F + I group, while scores for the items related to "sexual desire" and "lubrication" were statistically reduced (P < 0.01), the concentration of the serum estradiol was significantly reduced [(57.4 ± 9.7) pg/L vs. (51.1 ± 12.1) pg/L before menopause, (19.8 ± 2.3) pg/L vs. (17.8 ± 3.3) pg/L after menopause, P < 0.01] and the level of the serum testosterone was significantly increased [(775.6 ± 217.8) ng/L vs. (886.0 ± 186.4) ng/L before menopause, (812.5 ± 311.3) ng/L vs. (914.4 ± 300.2) ng/L after menopause, P < 0.01] in the F + M group. FSFI score was negatively correlated with age and systolic blood pressure levels.

It indicated that in HUVECs irbesartan inhibited expression and secretion of TNFα-induced ICAM-1, VCAM-1, and E-selectin. Furthermore, irbesartan inhibited TNF-α-induced IκB-α phosphorylation and NF-κB P65 nuclear translocation substantially. In conclusion, irbesartan attenuates TNFα-induced ICAM-1, VCAM-1, and E-selectin expression by way of suppressing the NF-κB pathways in HUVECs. Irbesartan might postpone the progression of inflammatory diseases, including atherosclerosis.

Compared with the Ace2(+/y) mice, cardiac expression of PPARα and PPARγ were reduced in Ace2(-/y) mice and the myocardial collagen volume fraction (CVF) and expression of fibrosis-related genes were increased, including transforming growth factor-β1 (TGFβ1), connective tissue growth factor (CTGF), collagen I and collagen III. Moreover, ACE2 deficiency triggered cardiac hypertrophy, increased myocardial fibrosis and adverse ultrastructure injury in ACE2KO hearts with higher levels of atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) and phosphorylated extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2 (ERK1/2), without affecting cardiac systolic function. Intriguingly, treatment with irbesartan significantly reversed ACE2 deficiency-mediated pathological hypertrophy and myocardial fibrosis in Ace2(-/y) mice linked with enhancement of plasma Ang-(1-7) level and downregulation of AT1 receptor in heart. Consistent with attenuation of myocardial fibrosis and ultrastructure injury, the myocardial CVF and levels of ANF, TGFβ1, CTGF, collagen I, collagen III and phosphorylated ERK1/2 were lower, and expression of PPARγ was higher in ACE2KO mice in response to irbesartan treatment, without affecting cardiac expression of PPARα, PPARδ, β-myosin heavy chain, TGFβ2 and fibronectin.

Hypertension is difficult to treat in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) or obesity. Combination therapies are often required to effectively lower blood pressure (BP) and attain BP goals. In this post-hoc analysis of 2 prospective, randomized, controlled studies in patients with uncontrolled or untreated moderate or severe hypertension, the efficacy and safety of treatment with irbesartan/hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) and irbesartan was assessed in 2 separate analyses: patients with diabetes (n=143) and by obesity status (n=1125). Patients received irbesartan/HCTZ (150 mg/12.5 mg titrated to 300 mg/25 mg) or irbesartan (150 mg titrated to 300 mg) for 7 (severe hypertension study) or 12 (moderate hypertension study) weeks. Efficacy comparisons between treatment groups were performed using Fisher's exact tests. After 7 to 8 weeks of treatment, systolic BP (SBP)/diastolic BP (DBP) decreased in patients with diabetes by 26.9/17.8 mm Hg and 21.8/15.8 mm Hg after irbesartan/HCTZ and irbesartan treatment, respectively (P [SBP]=0.09, P [DBP]=0.27). In obese patients (n=544), SBP/DBP decreased by 29.4/20.2 mm Hg and 20.1/15.9 mm Hg after irbesartan/HCTZ and irbesartan treatment, respectively (P<0.0001). More patients with T2DM reached the BP goal of <130/80 mm Hg at week 7 to 8 in the irbesartan/HCTZ group than in the irbesartan group (12% vs 5%), although not statistically significant (P=0.22). Significantly more obese patients reached their respective BP goals in the irbesartan/HCTZ group than in the irbesartan group (48% vs 23%; P<0.0001). Treatment-emergent adverse event rates were similar between treatment groups regardless of the presence of diabetes or body mass index (BMI) status. In patients with moderate or severe hypertension and with a BMI ≥ 30 kg/m(2), initial treatment with irbesartan/HCTZ combination therapy was more effective than irbesartan monotherapy.

Irbesartan (SR 47436, BMS 186295) is an imidazole derivative that specifically binds to the angiotensin type 1 receptor. The purpose of this study was to assess the inhibitory effect of irbesartan on the pressor action of exogenous angiotensin II in healthy subjects, to evaluate the dose dependency and duration of this inhibition, and to determine the effect of irbesartan on plasma components of the renin-angiotensin system. Forty-two healthy male volunteers maintained on ad libitum sodium intake were enrolled in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-design, dose-ranging study. On 2 study days 1 week apart, volunteers were given either a placebo or the active drug at one of the chosen doses (5, 25, 50, 75, 100, 150, or 300 mg). The pressor effects of an individually titrated test dose of exogenous angiotensin II as well as plasma levels of angiotensin II, active renin, aldosterone, and treatment drug were determined before and throughout the 24 h after drug administration. The inhibitory effect of irbesartan on the pressor response to angiotensin II was observed within 1 h after dosing, peaked between 2 and 4 h, and lasted more than 24 h for doses of 25 mg and more. The effect was clearly dose related. Two and 24 h after administration of irbesartan, 300 mg, the response of arterial blood pressure (systolic and diastolic) to a given dose of angiotensin II was reduced by approximately 100% and 60%, respectively. Plasma concentrations of angiotensin II and active renin increased markedly after irbesartan administration, whereas plasma concentrations of aldosterone decreased. No evidence was found that the high levels of circulating angiotensin II observed after irbesartan administration could override the inhibitory effect of irbesartan on any of the measured parameters up to 24 h after dose. In conclusion, irbesartan appears to be a well-tolerated, orally active, potent antagonist of the renin-angiotensin system in men.

AT1 is the principal receptor for angiotensin II (AngII), which regulates blood pressure and osmotic homeostasis. Earlier studies have shown that position 163 interacts with the antihypertensive nonpeptide antagonist, Losartan. A recently discovered polymorphism found in humans (rs12721226) coding for residue 163 led us to determine whether this polymorphism would affect Losartan antihypertensive therapies. The pharmacological properties of the A163T hAT1 variant are described.

Diabetes is the most common cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD)-kidney failure to the point of requiring dialysis or a kidney transplant. representing 45% of all new patients enrolling into ESRD programs. Approximately 400,000 patients in the United States have ESRD, and this number has doubled over the decade from 1991-2001. Dialysis is a very expensive modality costing more than 50,000 dollars per patient per year. Total medical spending for the 400,000 patients with ESRD cost 22.8 billion dollars in 2001, an almost 3-fold increase over the same 1991-2001 decade. ESRD spending represents 6.4% of the total Medicare budget, a 33% increase from 4.8% in 1991. This epidemic growth in ESRD has led to skyrocketing utilization of health care resources.

Angiotensin II-induced activation of vascular ERK1/2 and p38MAPK is increased in SHR. These effects are mediated via AT1 receptors, which activate Src-dependent pathways. Overexpression of c-fos mRNA in SHR is due to ERK1/2-dependent, p38MAPK-independent pathways. Our results suggest that angiotensin II activates numerous MAP kinases in VSMCs and that differential activation of these kinases may be important in altered growth signaling in VSMCs from SHR.

Current guidelines from the Joint National Committee on Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Pressure recommend first-line treatment with a thiazide diuretic but do not provide specific guidance for obese patients. The renin system is activated in obesity-associated arterial hypertension. Therefore, we tested the hypothesis that the oral direct renin inhibitor aliskiren could provide additive blood pressure lowering in obese patients with hypertension (body mass index >or=30 kg/m(2); mean sitting diastolic blood pressure: 95 to 109 mm Hg) who had not responded to 4 weeks of treatment with hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) 25 mg. After a 2- to 4-week washout, 560 patients received single-blind HCTZ (25 mg) for 4 weeks; 489 nonresponders were randomly assigned to double-blind aliskiren (150 mg), irbesartan (150 mg), amlodipine (5 mg), or placebo for 4 weeks added to HCTZ (25 mg), followed by 8 weeks on double the initial doses of aliskiren, irbesartan, or amlodipine. After 8 weeks of double-blind treatment (4 weeks on the higher dose), aliskiren/HCTZ lowered blood pressure by 15.8/11.9 mm Hg, significantly more (P<0.0001) than placebo/HCTZ (8.6/7.9 mm Hg). Aliskiren/HCTZ provided blood pressure reductions similar to those with irbesartan/HCTZ and amlodipine/HCTZ (15.4/11.3 and 13.6/10.3 mm Hg, respectively), with similar tolerability to placebo/HCTZ. Adverse event rates were highest with amlodipine/HCTZ because of a higher incidence of peripheral edema (11.1% versus 0.8% to 1.6% in other groups). In conclusion, combination treatment with aliskiren is a highly effective and well-tolerated therapeutic option for obese patients with hypertension who fail to achieve blood pressure control with first-line thiazide diuretic treatment.

An environmentally friendly ionic liquids dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction (IL-DLLME) method coupled with high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) for the determination of antihypertensive drugs irbesartan and valsartan in human urine samples was developed. The HPLC separations were accomplished in less than 10 min using a reversed-phase C(18) column (250 × 4.60 mm i.d., 5 µm) with a mobile phase containing 0.3 % formic acid solution and methanol (v/v, 3:7; flow rate, 1.0 mL/min). UV absorption responses at 236 nm were linear over a wide concentration range from 50 µg/mL to the detection limits of 3.3 µg/L for valsartan and 1.5 µg/L for irbesartan. The effective parameters on IL-DLLME, such as ionic liquid types and their amounts, disperser solvent types and their volume, pH of the sample and extraction time were studied and optimized. The developed IL-DLLME-HPLC was successfully applied for evaluation of the urine irbesartan and valsartan profile following oral capsules administration.

Recent studies from our laboratory indicate that chlorthalidone triggers persistent activation of the sympathetic nervous system and promotes insulin resistance in hypertensive patients, independent of serum potassium. Mechanisms underlying these adverse effects of chlorthalidone remain unknown, but increasing evidence in rodents suggests the role of angiotensin and aldosterone excess in inducing both sympathetic overactivity and insulin resistance. Accordingly, we conducted studies in 17 subjects with untreated stage 1 hypertension, measuring sympathetic nerve activity at baseline and after 12 weeks of chlorthalidone alone (25 mg/d), chlorthalidone plus spironolactone, and chlorthalidone plus irbesartan, using randomized crossover design. We found that chlorthalidone alone decreased 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure from 135±3/84±2 to 124±2/78±2 mm Hg and significantly increased sympathetic nerve activity from baseline (from 41±3 versus 49±4 bursts per minute; P<0.01). The addition of spironolactone to chlorthalidone returned sympathetic nerve activity value to baseline (42±3 bursts per minute; P>0.05), whereas the addition of irbesartan failed to alter the sympathetic nerve activity response to chlorthalidone in the same subjects (52±2 bursts per minute; P<0.01) despite a similar buy avapro reduction in ambulatory blood pressure (121±2/75±2 and 121±2/75±2 mm Hg, respectively). Chlorthalidone alone also increased indices of insulin resistance, which was not observed when used in combination with spironolactone. In conclusion, our study demonstrates beneficial effects of spironolactone in attenuating both chlorthalidone-induced sympathetic activation and insulin resistance in humans, independent of blood pressure reduction. Because sympathetic overactivity and insulin resistance contribute to the poor prognosis in patients with cardiovascular disease, combination therapy of chlorthalidone with mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists may constitute a preferable regimen than chlorthalidone alone in hypertensive patients.

Pravastatin, irbesartan and captopril are frequently used in the treatment of patients with Type 2 diabetes. These drugs also exert beneficial metabolic effects, causing an improved glucose tolerance in patients, but the precise mechanisms by which this is achieved remain elusive. To this end, we have studied whether these drugs influence insulin secretion in vivo through effects on islet blood perfusion. Captopril (3 mg/kg of body weight), irbesartan (3 mg/kg of body weight) and pravastatin (0.5 mg/kg of body weight) were injected intravenously into anaesthetized female Wistar rats. Blood flow rates were determined by a microsphere technique. Blood glucose concentrations were measured with test reagent strips and serum insulin concentrations were measured by ELISA. Pancreatic blood flow was markedly increased by pravastatin (P<0.001), captopril (P<0.05) and irbesartan (P<0.01). Pancreatic islet blood flow was significantly and preferentially enhanced after the administration of captopril (P<0.01), irbesartan (P<0.01) and pravastatin (P<0.001). Kidney blood flow was enhanced significantly by pravastatin (P<0.01), irbesartan (P<0.05) and captopril (P<0.01). Captopril and pravastatin also enhanced late-phase insulin secretion and positively influenced glycaemia in intraperitoneal glucose tolerance tests. In conclusion, the present study suggests that a local pancreatic renin-angiotensin system and pravastatin treatment may be selectively buy avapro controlling pancreatic islet blood flow, augmenting insulin secretion and thereby improving glucose tolerance. Our findings indicate significant gender-related differences in the vascular response to these agents. Since statins and renin-angiotensin system inhibitors are frequently used by diabetic patients, the antidiabetic actions of these drugs reported previously might occur, in part, through the beneficial direct islet effects shown in the present study.

A lot of evidence points to the important role of the renin-angiotensin system in the physiopathology of hypertension and the progression of chronic renal failure. In this review, the authors report the data concerning the protective effects of antagonists of angiotensin II AT1 receptors (AT1ra). The AT1 ra have been shown to have beneficial effects in most experimental models of nephropathy in which they have been tested (renal ischaemia, essential or induced hypertension, glomerulonephritis, 5/6 nephrectomy, renal transplantation, induced diabetes, toxic and radiotherapy-induced nephropathy). Clinical trials confirm these beneficial effects. In healthy subjects and hypertensive patients, the AT1 ra have identical effects to buy avapro those of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors on renal haemodynamics. In hypertensives, Candesartan and Irbesartan increase renal blood flow and the glomerular filtration rate and decrease the filtration fraction. Two studies have also shown that Candesartan and Irbesartan reduce proteinuria in diabetic patients. Similar results have been reported in essential hypertension with renal failure. These data suggest that AT1 ra have beneficial effects on the progression of experimental kidney disease and on proteinuria in the clinical setting. Of the pharmacological agents available for use in this class, it is essential to propose molecules whose efficacy in antagonising the effects of angiotensin II lasts throughout the 24 hour period. Clinical trials are under way to evaluate the effects of AT1 ra on renal function in man over a long period.

Blockade of the renin-angiotensin system with angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors or with angiotensin receptor antagonists confers patients with arterial hypertension (AH) and associated risk factors, target organ lesion or cardiovascular disease with greater protection in morbidity and mortality terms. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the effect of irbesartan, an angiotensin II receptor antagonist, on the absolute cardiovascular risk in a cohort of hypertensive patients with moderate, high, or very high cardiovascular risk. This was a multicenter, prospective, observational, cohort study with 1974 patients (63 11 years; 47% males) with newly diagnosed essential AH or AH non-controlled with anti-hypertensive monotherapy, and moderate to very high cardiovascular risk. Irbesartan therapy at a dosage of 150300 mg was instituted as monotherapy or associated with hydrochlorothiazide, 12.5 mg. The clinical follow-up was 6 months. The evaluated parameters included the absolute cardiovascular risk, measured either quantitatively (Framingham algorithm) or qualitatively (low, moderate, high, and very high risk groups following the WHO/International Hypertension Society guidelines). Irbesartan therapy led to a significant (p = 0.0001) decrease in SBP (from 170.9 18.4 to 138.5 16.5 mmHg) and DBP (from 96.6 11 to 82 9 mmHg). The quantitative absolute cardiovascular risk decreased by 29.8% (from 12.14 8 to 8.65 6.2; p < 0.0001). The percentage of patients with very high cardiovascular risk decreased from 1.52% to 0.51% and that for patients with high cardiovascular risk from 92.77% to 88.32%. The latter patients changed to the moderate risk group. As a result, this moderate risk group increased from 5.71% to 11.17%. The buy avapro adverse reaction rate was very low as only 2.2% of patients had some adverse reaction. In conclusion, irbesartan as monotherapy or associated with hydrochlorothiazide has been shown to be effective in reducing the absolute cardiovascular risk, which is obtained by a substantial decrease in arterial pressure and a good safety profile on the biochemical parameters. Tolerability was excellent, with a very low rate of adverse reactions.

A total of 72 trials (comprising 9094 patients) were selected and analyzed. No trial evaluating furosemide or spironolactone satisfied the inclusion criteria for this analysis. For SBP, the reduction was more marked with diuretics, calcium channel antagonists, and ACE inhibitors. Of all the drugs studied, indapamide SR gave the greatest SBP reduction (-22.2 mm Hg). Evaluated therapeutic classes had buy avapro a similar magnitude of effect on DBP, i.e. reduction between -11.4 mm Hg with beta-adrenoceptor antagonists and -10.3 mm Hg with angiotensin II type 1 receptor antagonists.

The Renal Denervation for Hypertension (DENERHTN) trial was a prospective, open-label randomised controlled trial with blinded endpoint evaluation in patients with resistant hypertension, done in 15 French tertiary care centres specialised in hypertension management. Eligible patients aged 18-75 years received indapamide 1·5 mg, ramipril 10 mg (or irbesartan 300 mg), and amlodipine 10 mg daily for 4 weeks to confirm treatment resistance by ambulatory blood pressure monitoring before randomisation. Patients were then randomly assigned (1:1) to receive either renal denervation plus an SSAHT regimen (renal denervation group) or buy avapro the same SSAHT alone (control group). The randomisation sequence was generated by computer, and stratified by centres. For SSAHT, after randomisation, spironolactone 25 mg per day, bisoprolol 10 mg per day, prazosin 5 mg per day, and rilmenidine 1 mg per day were sequentially added from months two to five in both groups if home blood pressure was more than or equal to 135/85 mm Hg. The primary endpoint was the mean change in daytime systolic blood pressure from baseline to 6 months as assessed by ambulatory blood pressure monitoring. The primary endpoint was analysed blindly. The safety outcomes were the incidence of acute adverse events of the renal denervation procedure and the change in estimated glomerular filtration rate from baseline to 6 months. This trial is registered with, number NCT01570777.

A series of new 5-oxo-1,2,4-oxadiazole derivatives with 1, 4-disubsituted or 1, 5-disubsituted indole group was designed, synthesized, and pharmacologically evaluated. These derivatives displayed high affinities to the AT1 receptor at the same order of magnitude to losartan. The methyl ester with 1, 4-disubsituted indole group, 1 (5.01 ± 1.67 nM) showed high antihypertension activity on spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs). Its Vantin Antibiotic Dosage maximal response lowered 30 mmHg of mean blood pressure (MBP) at 10 mg/kg after oral administration, which was better than irbesartan, and the antihypertensive effect lasted beyond 24 h. These results made 1 deserve further investigation.
