A 71-year-old woman experienced an acute onset of angioedema and a photosensitive pruritic rash after 3 months of therapy with valsartan, an angiotensin II receptor antagonist. After discontinuing valsartan and treatment with subcutaneous epinephrine, intravenous methylprednisolone, diphenhydramine, and Eucerin cream, her symptoms dissipated and the rash resolved. Rash and angioedema have been reported with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and, very rarely, with losartan, the other currently marketed angiotensin II receptor antagonist. To our knowledge, this is the first report of such a reaction with valsartan.

Blacks appear to have a more modest blood pressure (BP) response to angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) monotherapy than non-Blacks. This post-hoc analysis compared the BP-lowering efficacy of olmesartan medoxomil (OM), losartan potassium (LOS), and valsartan (VAL) in Black versus non-Black participants in a randomized, forced-titration study. Patients were randomized to OM 20, LOS 50, and VAL 80mg/day or placebo for 4 weeks and uptitrated to 40, 100, and 320mg/day doses, respectively, by study end. The primary end point was the mean change from baseline in diastolic BP (DBP) at week 8. All treatments produced significant reductions in mean DBP and systolic BP (SBP) in Blacks (n=150; P < .001). BP <140/90mm Hg was achieved in 35.0%, 15.6%, 29.7%, and 5.0% of Blacks receiving OM, LOS, VAL, and placebo, respectively, and in 41.0%, 21.1%, 28.8%, and 14.5% of non-Blacks receiving OM, LOS, VAL, and placebo, respectively, after 8 weeks. BP-lowering efficacy of the three agents was similar at 3 months. OM had the greatest early efficacy, with numerically greater mean reductions in DBP and SBP, and a higher proportion of Black and non-Black patients achieving goal BP of 140/90mm Hg at week 8.

Despite significant therapeutic advances, patients with chronic heart failure (HF) remain at high risk of morbidity and mortality. Sacubitril valsartan (previously known as LCZ696) is a new oral agent approved for the treatment of symptomatic chronic heart failure in adults with reduced ejection fraction. It is described as the first in class angiotensin receptor neprilysin inhibitor (ARNI) since it incorporates the neprilysin inhibitor, sacubitril and the angiotensin II receptor antagonist, valsartan. Neprilysin is an endopeptidase that breaks down several vasoactive peptides including natriuretic peptides (NPs), bradykinin, endothelin and angiotensin II (Ang-II). Therefore, a natural consequence of its inhibition is an increase of plasmatic levels of both, NPs and Ang-II (with opposite biological actions). So, a combined inhibition of these both systems (Sacubitril / valsartan) may enhance the benefits of NPs effects in HF (natriuresis, diuresis, etc) while Ang-II receptor is inhibited (reducing vasoconstriction and aldosterone release). In a large clinical trial (PARADIGM-HF with 8442 patients), this new agent was found to significantly reduce cardiovascular and all cause mortality as well as hospitalizations due to HF (compared to enalapril). This manuscript reviews clinical evidence for sacubitril valsartan, dosing and cautions, future directions and its considered place in the therapy of HF with reduced ejection fraction.

Compared with control group, rabbits treated with L-Thy only were found to have remarkable myocardial hypertrophy and extracellular matrix fibrosis. Increased plasma and tissue AngII were detected in L-Thy group. RT-PCR and Western blotting analysis revealed enhanced mRNA and protein expression of ACE, AT1R and AT2R. It was also demonstrated that both imidapril and valsartan alleviated cardiac hypertrophy and extracellular matrix fibrosis induced by L-Thy. Compared with L-Thy and valsartan group, imidapril group showed significantly lower plasma /tissue AngII concentration and more effective inhibition of extracellular matrix fibrosis. Imidapril did not alter the expression of ACE, AT1R or AT2R. Plasma concentration of AngII was markedly higher in valsartan group compared with L-Thy group, whereas tissue AngII concentration showed no significant difference between two groups. In valsartan group, AT1R and AT2R mRNA expressions were significantly upregulated, whereas valsartan did not change mRNA and protein expression of ACE.

Both aging and hypertension could result in excessive proliferation of rat aortic VSMCs and the expression changes of correlated cytoactive factors. The extracts from Panax ginseng, Panax notoginseng (Burk.) and Ligusticum chuanxiong can lower their proliferation levels and reduce the expressions of negative cytokines, thus reducing aging and hypertension induced injury of VSMCs and delaying angiocellular aging.

LCZ696 is superior to valsartan alone in reducing blood pressure. Preliminary results from a Phase II trial showed that LCZ696 reduced NT-proBNP to a greater extent than valsartan alone, and in addition LCZ696 had beneficial effects on symptoms. With these promising first results, the results of ongoing further studies in heart failure are eagerly awaited.

Angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs) are widely used as hypertensive therapeutic agents. However, it has been reported that Telmisartan (a type of ARB) additionally activates peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)-γ. We previously reported that PPAR-γ ligand induced the growth arrest of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) cells through apoptosis, and that Telmisartan had the potential to inhibit prostate cancer cell growth through apoptosis. In this study, we evaluated the effects of Telmisartan and other ARBs on cell proliferation in an RCC cell line using normal proximal tubular endothelial cells (PRTECs) and the human RCC (Caki-1) cell line. The effects of Telmisartan as well as of other ARBs (Candesartan, Valsartan, Irbesartan and Losartan) on RCC cell growth were examined by MTT assay. Flow cytometry and Hoechst staining were used to determine whether or not the ARBs induced apoptosis. Telmisartan caused marked inhibition in RCC cells in a concentration- and time-dependent manner. Treatment with 100 µM of Telmisartan induced early apoptosis and DNA fragmentation in the RCC cells, but not in the PRTECs. None of the other ARBs had an effect on cell proliferation in the RCC cells or the PRTECs. Telmisartan may mediate potent antiproliferative effects against RCC cells through PPAR-γ. Thus, Telmisartan is a potential target for prevention and treatment in RCC.

Sustained ventricular arrhythmias and heart failure are well-recognized complications after acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and have been associated with worse outcomes and increased mortality. The use of and outcomes associated with acute beta-blocker therapy in patients with AMI complicated by sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT) or ventricular fibrillation (VF) and heart failure were investigated. Of 5,391 patients in the VALIANT Registry, sustained VT/VF occurred in 306 (5.7%), with an in-hospital mortality rate of 20.3%. Multivariable logistic regression identified sustained VT/VF as a major predictor of in-hospital death (relative risk 4.18, 95% confidence interval 2.91 to 5.93). Of those with sustained VT/VF, 55.2% were treated with intravenous or oral beta blockade in the first 24 hours. After adjusting for baseline characteristics, propensity for acute beta-blocker use, and the interaction between Killip classification and beta-blocker therapy, beta-blocker therapy within 24 hours was associated with decreased in-hospital mortality in patients with sustained VT/VF (relative risk 0.28, 95% confidence interval 0.10 to 0.75, p = 0.013) without evidence of worsening heart failure. Patients with sustained VT/VF were less likely to receive beta blockers within 24 hours (p = 0.001). In conclusion, sustained VT/VF was common after AMI. In patients with sustained VT/VF, beta-blocker therapy in the first 24 hours after AMI was associated with decreased early mortality without worsening heart failure. Unfortunately, beta blockers were underused acutely in patients with sustained VT/VF.

Inhibition of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system plays a pivotal role in the prevention and treatment of diabetic nephropathy. Angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARB) exert a renoprotective effect and attenuate the progression of diabetic nephropathy. However, the underlying cellular and molecular mechanisms in the kidney remain to be elucidated. The present study was undertaken to focus on the effect of local angiotensin II type 1 receptor blockade on the inflammatory reaction during the early stages of diabetic nephropathy.

To observe the accumulation of dendritic cells (DCs) in rat remnant kidney and its contribution to tubulointerstitial fibrosis, under influence of valsartan on DCs, a rat remnant kidney model was established by subtotal nephrectomy. Four experimental groups were included: normal, sham, model (SNx) and the group treated with Valsartan (SNxV). Rats were killed at week 1, 4 and 12, respectively. CD1a+CD80+ DCs were assayed by double immunostaining method and the images were analyzed with Axioplan 2 microscopy. The expressions of P-selectin, TGF-beta1, alpha-SMA, collagen III and fibronectin was analyzed by immunohistochemistry or semi-quantitative RT-PCR, and the level of tubulointerstitial firosis (TIF) was scored. CD1a+CD80+ DCs were gradually increased among renal tubules, interstitium and vessels, especially in interstitium, and the number of DCs in model group at week 12 was much more than that in model groups at week 1 or 4. The expressions of P-selectin, TGF-beta1, alpha-SMA, collagen III and fibronectin in tubulointerstitial areas and the degree of TIF was increased substantially in model group at week 12. The accumulation of DCs in interstitium was well associated with the loss of renal function and the progression of tubulointerstitial fibrosis. Valsartan treatment inhibited the local accumulation of DCs and attenuated renal tubulointerstitial damage. The local DCs accumulation was related to tubulointerstitial fibrosis and renal dysfunction following renal ablation. Blockade to angiotensin II might be a potent way to attenuate renal immuno-inflammatory injury.

Angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs) vary in their binding affinities to angiotensin II type 1 (AT(1)) receptors in in vitro experiments. We compared a high-affinity ARB, olmesartan, and a low-affinity ARB, valsartan, in terms of their vascular protective effects in stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR-SP). Blood pressure was equally reduced by placebo, olmesartan (1 mg kg(-1)) and valsartan (3 mg kg(-1)) daily for 2 weeks. In another experiment, 12-week-old SHR-SP were fed 8% salt, and olmesartan (1 mg kg(-1)), valsartan (3 mg kg(-1)) or placebo were administered daily until a survival rate of 60% was reached. In the experiment using SHR-SP, the reduction of acetylcholine-induced vascular relaxation and the increase of p22(phox) expression in the placebo-treated group were significantly attenuated by olmesartan and valsartan, but this attenuation was significantly greater for olmesartan. In immunohistological analysis, all areas positive for angiotensin II, p22(phox) and 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal were significantly reduced by olmesartan and valsartan, but again this reduction was significantly greater for olmesartan. In salt-loaded SHR-SP, the number of days to reach a 60% survival rate was 25 and 42 in placebo and valsartan-treated rats, respectively, and this represented a significant difference. The survival rate in olmesartan-treated rats was 95% at day 42, when valsartan-treated rats reached 60% survival, and this difference was also significant. In the surviving rats, olmesartan, but not valsartan, augmented acetylcholine-induced vascular relaxation and attenuated vascular p22(phox) expression. Thus, heterogeneity in binding affinity to AT(1) receptors among ARBs may result in different degrees of vascular protection and lifespan extension.

diovan 160 generic 2015-06-30

This study compares the efficacy of telmisartan with that of valsartan and ramipril in reducing blood pressure (BP) over 24 hrs in the elderly patients with metabolic syndrome (MS). This prospective and open label study analyzed a sample of 60 patients over 65 years of age with hypertension and with MS. At the beginning the BP was monitored by a 24-hr ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (AMBP). Following this, the 60 patients were divided into 3 groups of 20, to each of which was prescribed, respectively, telmisartan, valsartan and ramipril to take for 12 weeks. The drugs were to be taken at 9.00 a.m. Later on the doses were increased. After 12 weeks of therapy, BP was monitored by a 24-hr AMBP. The use of telmisartan caused a greater reduction of the BP in the final 4-6 hours of the period between the 1st administration of the buy diovan drug and the next one, these last 4-6 hours being those when cardiovascular and cerebrovascular accidents are more frequent (between 6.00 and 10.00 a.m.). Comparing to valsartan and ramipril, telmisartan results in excellent pressure control during the last 4-6 hours between the 1st administration of the drug and the next one.

The estimated QALYs gained with V/A/H were 10.72 ± 0.60 vs. 10.68 ± 0.60 for O/A/H (p < 0.001). The total lifetime cost with V/A/H was &OV0556;11,736.16 ± 234.59 vs &OV0556;11,482.67 ± 240.17 for O/A/H (p < 0.001 buy diovan ). The deterministic analysis of the model demonstrated that the incremental cost-effectiveness ratio of the V/A/H vs. O/A/H was far lower than the Greek GDP per-capita (&OV0556;6,845/QALY), rendering V/A/H as a cost-effective choice. Extensive sensitivity analyses confirmed the robustness of the results. Probabilistic sensitivity analysis demonstrated a more than 85% probability for V/A/H to be cost-effective at a willingness-to-pay threshold of &OV0556;16,000/QALY.

Angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) have a pharmacological role in the treatment of heart failure through their blockade of the effects of angiotensin II. ARBs, however, lack the potential benefits of inhibiting the breakdown of bradykinin that is seen with ACE-Is. Historically, the medical literature assessing ARBs in the treatment of chronic heart failure have been short in duration and primarily focused on surrogate markers of disease severity. Recent, well-designed clinical trials have shed new light on the potential roles of ARBs in the treatment of chronic heart failure and their effects on mortality in this patient population. In comparison to captopril, losartan has been shown to have similar benefits in cardiovascular mortality and morbidity. In patients with systolic dysfunction who are intolerant to ACE-Is, candesartan has been shown to reduce cardiovascular mortality and hospital admissions for heart failure. In combination with ACE-Is, candesartan and valsartan have been shown to improve heart failure morbidity and, with candesartan, reduced cardiovascular mortality in those with systolic dysfunction. These 2 trials show conflicting mortality information regarding the buy diovan use of triple therapy with ACE-Is, ARBs, and beta-blockers for systolic dysfunction. In patients with heart failure but preserved systolic dysfunction, candesartan showed no effects on mortality and only modest effects on morbidity.

Diabetic and new-onset diabetic patients with hypertension have higher cardiac morbidity than patients without diabetes. We aimed to investigate whether baseline predictors of cardiac morbidity, the major constituent of the primary endpoint in the Valsartan Antihypertensive Long-term Use Evaluation (VALUE) trial, were different in patients with diabetes and new-onset diabetes compared to patients without diabetes. In total, 15,245 high-risk hypertensive patients in the VALUE trial were followed for an average of 4.2 years. At baseline, 5250 patients were diabetic by the 1999 World Health Organization criteria, 1298 patients developed new-onset diabetes and 8697 patients stayed non-diabetic during follow-up. Cardiac morbidity was defined as a composite of myocardial infarction and heart failure requiring hospitalization, and baseline predictors were identified by univariate and multivariate stepwise Cox regression analyses. History of coronary heart disease (CHD) and age were the most important predictors of cardiac morbidity in both diabetic and non-diabetic patients. History of CHD, history of stroke and age were the only significant predictors of cardiac morbidity in patients with new-onset diabetes. Predictors of cardiac morbidity, in particular history of CHD and age, were essentially the same in high-risk hypertensive patients with diabetes, new-onset diabetes and without diabetes buy diovan who participated in the VALUE trial.

Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) activation has been implicated in the pathogenesis of myocardial ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. The activated TLR4 is capable of activating a variety of proinflammatory mediators, such as tumor necrosis factor-a (TNF-a) and interleukin-6 (IL-6). Valsartan as a kind of Angiotensin II type 1 receptor blockers is gradually used for the treatment of ischemic heart disease depending on its anti-inflammation function. Therefore, we hypothesized that valsartan protects against myocardial I/R injury by suppressing TLR4 activation. We constructed the rat model of myocardial I/R injury. The rats were pretreated with valsartan for 2 weeks, and then subjected to 30 min ischemia and 2 h reperfusion. TLR4 and Nuclear factor kappa-B (NF-kappaB) levels were detected by quantitative real-time PCR and western blot. In order to evaluate myocardial damage, the myocardial infarct size, histopathologic buy diovan changes, and the release of myocardial enzymes, proinflammation cytokines and Angiotensin II were analyzed by triphenyl tetrazolium chloride (TTC) staining, light microscopy, and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), respectively. Valsartan preconditioning inhibited TLR4 and NF-kappaB expressions concomitant with an improvement in myocardial injury, such as smaller infarct size, fewer release of myocardial enzymes, and proinflammation mediators. These findings suggest that valsartan plays a pivotal role in the protective effects on myocardial I/R injury. This protection mechanism is possibly due to its anti-inflammation function via TLR4/NF-kappaB signaling pathway.

Blockade of the renin buy diovan -angiotensin system (RAS) is a critical approach to the management of hypertension, especially in proteinuric patients. It is well proven that the direct renin inhibitor aliskiren shows comparable clinical efficacy to the angiotensin II receptor blocker valsartan on blood pressure control and albuminuria. However, there is only limited data on the hand-to-hand effectiveness of these two RAS blockers in improving arterial stiffness. We tested whether aliskiren or valsartan would improve arterial stiffness in hypertensive patients with albuminuria who are already on antihypertensive therapy.

Biomarkers of oxidative stress and inflammation predict cardiovascular events in maintenance hemodialysis patients. buy diovan Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and angiotensin-receptor blockers (ARBs) reduce cardiovascular mortality in the general population, but their benefit in maintenance hemodialysis patients is not fully explored. To test whether ACE inhibitors and ARBs differentially affect markers of oxidative stress, inflammation, and fibrinolysis during hemodialysis, we conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled 3×3 crossover study. We randomly assigned 15 participants undergoing hemodialysis to placebo, ramipril (5 mg/d), and valsartan (160 mg/d) for 7 days, with a washout period of 3 weeks in between the treatments. On the morning of the seventh day of drug treatment, participants underwent serial blood sampling during hemodialysis. Neither ramipril nor valsartan affected BP during hemodialysis. Ramipril increased IL-1β concentrations (P=0.02) and decreased IL-10 concentrations (P=0.04) compared with placebo. Valsartan and ramipril both lowered IL-6 levels during dialysis (P<0.01 for each compared with placebo). Valsartan increased F(2)-isoprostane levels, and ramipril suggested a similar trend (P=0.09). Valsartan and ramipril both lowered D-dimer levels (P<0.01 for both), whereas only ramipril seemed to prevent a rise in vWf levels (P=0.04). In summary, during hemodialysis, valsartan induces a greater anti-inflammatory effect compared with ramipril, although ramipril seems to prevent dialysis-induced endothelial dysfunction as measured by levels of vWf. A prospective clinical trial is necessary to determine whether ACE inhibitors and ARBs also differ with respect to their effects on cardiovascular mortality in this population.

A spectrophotometric method was developed for simultaneous determination of amlodipine (Aml) and valsartan (Val) without previous separation. In this method amlodipine in methanolic solution was determined using zero order UV spectrophotometry by measuring its absorbency at 360.5 nm without any interference from valsartan.Valsartan spectrum in zero order is totally overlapped with that of amlodipine. First, second and third derivative could not resolve the overlapped peaks.The first derivative of the ratio spectra technique was applied for the measurement of valsartan. The ratio spectrum was obtained by dividing the absorption spectrum of the mixture Geodon Drug by that of amlodipine, so that the concentration of valsartan could be determined from the first derivative of the ratio spectrum at 290 nm. Quantification limits of amlodipine and valsartan were 10-80 μg/ml and 20-180 μg/ml respectively. The method was successfully applied for the quantitative determination of both drugs in bulk powder and pharmaceutical formulation.

The aim of the present study was to investigate the interaction between valsartan, an anti-hypertension drug, and human serum albumin (HSA) using spectroscopic techniques, including fluorescence, ultraviolet-visible absorption, synchronous fluorescence and circular dichroism (CD). The results demonstrated that valsartan and HSA form a complex and that a static quenching mechanism occurs. In addition, the binding constant and the number of binding sites for valsartan on HSA were analyzed. Hydrophobic interactions and hydrogen bonds were the predominant forces in the association reaction based on thermodynamic parameters. The distance between the donor (HSA) and the acceptor (valsartan) was 1.994 nm as derived from Forster's theory. Alterations in the secondary structure of HSA in the presence of valsartan were assessed using synchronous fluorescence and CD. This study provides an enhanced understanding of the pharmacodynamic Paracetamol Overdose Treat effects of valsartan on the physiologically important protein HSA.

In this randomized, double-blind study, 126 mild to moderate essential hypertensive patients from northern China were studied to determine the efficacy and safety of a combination therapy of valsartan and hydrochlorothiazide. Patients were randomized to the V80/H12.5 (80 mg valsartan/12.5 mg hydrochlorothiazide) group or the V80 (80 mg valsartan) group. Six weeks after treatment, the mean decrease from baseline in mean sitting systolic blood pressure (MSSBP) was significantly higher in the V80/H12.5 group than the V80 group, but there was no difference in the change of mean sitting diastolic blood pressure (MSDBP) in the two groups. Overall Abilify Generic Name , 80.33% and 70.97% had a controlled response (normalized MSDBP), and 85.25% and 77.42% had a diastolic response (normalized MSDBP or > 10 mmHg reduction in MSDBP) in the V80/H12.5 and V80 groups, respectively (not significantly different). The incidence of adverse events was also similar between the two groups. The combination of 80 mg valsartan/12.5 mg hydrochlorothiazide was efficacious and well tolerated in mild and moderate essential hypertensive patients.

To develop a valsartan-loaded gelatin microcapsule using hydroxypropylmethylcellulose (HPMC) as a stabilizer, which could improve the physical stability and bioavailability of valsartan, the gelatin microcapsules were prepared with various ratios of gelatin and HPMC using a spray-drying technique. Their solubility, dissolution, thermal characteristics, crystallinity, and physical stability were investigated. The bioavailability of drug in valsartan-loaded microcapsule was then evaluated compared to drug powder and commercial product in rats. The microcapsule with gelatin and/or HPMC enhanced the solubility and dissolution of drug compared to valsartan powder. Among the formulations tested, the valsartan-loaded gelatin microcapsule at the weight ratio of valsartan/gelatin/HPMC of 1/2/1 gave excellent drug solubility of approximately 2 microg/ml and dissolution of 70% at 1 h. The crystal state of valsartan in this microcapsule was changed from crystalline to amorphous form during the spray-drying process and maintained as an amorphous form at 40 degrees C for at least 3 months, indicating that it was physically stable. HPMC in this microcapsule could inhibit the recrystallization, resulting in stabilizing the amorphous form of valsartan. Furthermore, it improved the oral bioavailability of valsartan compared to valsartan powder and gave the similar AUC, C(max), and T(max) values to commercial product, suggesting that it was bioequivalent to commercial product in rats. Thus, the gelatin microcapsule with HPMC would be a more effective and stable oral delivery system of poorly water-soluble valsartan.

Angiotensin-II receptor antagonists (or blockers) are a newer class of antihypertensive agents. These drugs are selective for angiotensin II (type 1 receptor); unlike angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, they do not inhibit bradykinin metabolism or enhance prostaglandin synthesis. Angiotensin-II receptor antagonists are well tolerated. Cough occurs much less often with these agents than with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, and they do not adversely affect lipid profiles or cause rebound hypertension after discontinuation. Clinical trials indicate that angiotensin-II receptor antagonists are effective and safe in the treatment of hypertension. Their use in congestive heart failure and renal disease is under investigation.
