lopressor drug classification

We performed a prospective observational study and determined the number of standardized traumatic memories (NTRM) and PTSD symptom intensity in cardiac surgical patients at 1 day before surgery, and at 1 week and 6 months after the procedure. PTSD symptoms and NTRM were quantified using validated questionnaires. Metoprolol could be administered any time post-operatively.

Metoprolol, a cardio-selective beta-adrenergic blocking agent, was studied in 25 patients to assess its effect on "non-specific" ST-segment and T-wave changes both at rest and during exercise. In two thirds of the patients with ST-T-abnormalities at rest, the changes disappeared completely after beta-blockade but reappeared during exercise in some of them. Only in 9 patients were the changes eliminated also during exercise implying that they were "functional", i.e., caused by increased sympathetic discharge. In those patients, where the ST-T-abnormalities were not affected at all by the beta-blockade, they were probably due to organic heart disease, whereas when they were reduced but not completely abolished, increased sympathetic tone as well as organic heart disease might be the cause. It is inferred that the diagnostic information is increased by studying the effect of beta-blockade not only at rest but also during exercise. Metoprolol seems to be well suited for the evaluation of "non-specific" ST-T-abnormalities, especially when non-selective beta-blockers should be avoided, e.g. in obstructive lung disease.

ES was significantly decreased by beta-blocker therapy. According to the change in ES, DCM patients were classified into three groups, patients who improved, patients showing no change and patients who deteriorated. In the improvement and no-change groups, beta-blocker therapy induced a reduction in left ventricular dimensions and an associated increase in ejection fraction. However, in the deterioration group, left ventricular dimensions and ejection fraction were unchanged. There was a significant relationship between the change in left ventricular dimension at end-diastole and the change in ES.

Among 11 326 adults surviving a hospitalization for heart failure, 7976 received beta-blockers (atenolol, 38.5%; metoprolol tartrate, 43.2%; carvedilol, 11.6%; and other, 6.7%) during follow-up. The rate (per 100 person-years) of death during the 12 months after discharge varied by exposure and type of beta-blocker (atenolol, 20.1; metoprolol tartrate, 22.8; carvedilol, 17.7; and no beta-blockers, 37.0). After adjustment for confounders and the propensity to receive carvedilol, the risk of death compared with atenolol was higher for metoprolol tartrate (adjusted hazard ratio [HR], 1.16; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.01-1.34) and no beta-blockers (HR, 1.63; 95% CI, 1.44-1.84) but was not significantly different for carvedilol (HR, 1.16; 95% CI, 0.92-1.44).

The cost of reducing 1 mm of Hg blood pressure per day with nebivolol was 0.60, 0.70, and 1.06 INR, whereas that of metoprolol succinate was 0.93, 1.18, and 1.25 INR at their respective equivalent doses, hence significantly lower with the nebivolol group as compared to the metoprolol group (P < 0.05).

To assess the role of physical activity, stress and treatment on BP variations in working hypertensives we used repeated self measurements of BP which are cheaper and more simple than ambulatory BP measurements but allow for a smaller number of measurements. 34 working hypertensives self measured daily life BP, at home and at workplace, 7 times a day, for at least one week, before and 6 weeks after beta-blockade with metoprolol 200 to 400 mg daily. They used a Spengler SP9 electronic sphygmometer and specified on 4 grades scales their physical activity and stress just before measurement. The time for self measurement of BP was settled according to occupations more than to clocktime. The equipment was standardized at each visit by measuring BP with a mercury manometer then with the electronic sphygmometer. There were no significant differences neither for SBP nor for DBP and the two measures correlate closely (r = 0.91), P = 0.0001). Analysis of variance on SBP exhibits the role of time (p (0.001) and stress (p (0.0001). Physical activity does not interfere (p = 0.19). There is no difference between work days and sundays (p = 0.17). Treatment effect was very strong (p (0.0001) but there was no interaction neither with physical activity nor stress. Analysis of variance on DBP exhibits similar results except that BP on workdays is significantly higher than on sundays (p = 0.03). We conclude that: Repeated self measurement of BP is able to display variation of BP with occupations and stress. Beta-blockade lowers BP but does not interfere with variability.

Activity of human cytochrome P450 enzymes (CYPs) shows high inter-and intra-individual variability, which is determined by genetic and non-genetic factors. Using a combination of CYP-specific probe drugs, phenotyping cocktails allow simultaneous assessment of the activity of different CYP isoforms. The objective of this study was to characterize the phenotyping metrics of the Basel cocktail in healthy male subjects with induced and inhibited CYP activity.

Carvedilol (BM 14190) is a new potent and well-tolerated beta-adrenoceptor antagonist with vasodilating properties. Acute clinical studies have confirmed its efficacy as an antihypertensive agent. The present double-blind, randomized, metoprolol-controlled, long-term study reports the therapeutic results of carvedilol in essential hypertensive patients. Compared with placebo, carvedilol significantly reduces blood pressure after oral administration of 50 mg on a single and twice daily regimen. The antihypertensive effect was acute in onset, comparable in supine and standing position, and exercise-induced hypertension and tachycardia were significantly reduced. Indirect automatic 24 h blood pressure monitoring reliably confirmed clinic blood pressure and demonstrated a good antihypertensive effect of carvedilol after a single oral administration throughout daily activities and sleeping periods.

Sustained-release matrix tablets based on Eudragit RL and RS were manufactured by injection moulding. The influence of process temperature; matrix composition; drug load, plasticizer level; and salt form of metoprolol: tartrate (MPT), fumarate (MPF) and succinate (MPS) on ease of processing and drug release were evaluated. Formulations composed of 70/30% Eudragit RL/MPT showed the fastest drug release, substituting part of Eudragit RL by RS resulted in slower drug release, all following first-order release kinetics. Drug load only affected drug release of matrices composed of Eudragit RS: a higher MPT concentration yielded faster release rates. Adding triethyl citrate enhanced the processability, but was detrimental to long-term stability. The process temperature and plasticizer level had no effect on drug release, whereas metoprolol salt form significantly influenced release properties. The moulded tablets had a low porosity and a smooth surface morphology. A plasticizing effect of MPT, MPS and MPF on Eudragit RS and Eudragit RL was observed via DSC and DMA. Solubility parameter assessment, thermal analysis and X-ray diffraction demonstrated the formation of a solid solution immediately after production, in which H-bonds were formed between metoprolol and Eudragit as evidenced by near-infrared spectroscopy. However, high drug loadings of MPS and MPF showed a tendency to recrystallise during storage. The in vivo performance of injection-moulded tablets was strongly dependent upon drug loading.

To study side effects of drugs in preclinical as well as in postmarketing surveillance phase is very important. In our experiments the influence of metoprolol on carbohydrate- and lipid metabolism was investigated in male. Wistar rats. Metoprolol is a liposoluble beta1-selective adrenoceptor antagonists. We have calculated therapeutic dose which reduced heart frequency/min of the animals by 25%. This was 10 mg/kg. The blood glucose and triglyceride values of healthy rats are in the normal human domain. Blood glucose was high after the first metoprolol dose and increased further with continued treatment. Drug administration period comprised 16 days. At finishing experiments diminished glycogen content was measured which may be related to higher glucose output. In blood samples obtained one hour after last 16. metoprolol dose administration triglyceride values were high and HDL-C decreased. These data pertain to the development of a secondary hypertriglyceridaemia. Hyperglycemic and hypertriglyceridaemic responses were established with therapeutic doses regimen so they may be considered as unwanted effects.

The interaction between dextran sulfate (DS) with zwitterionic dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC) and negatively charged dipalmitoylphosphatidic acid monolayers at different surface pressures at air-liquid and liquid-liquid interfaces was studied using Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) and electrochemical techniques. The negatively charged DS can bind to phospholipids via calcium ions. To investigate the mechanism of the adsorption of DS on lipid monolayers, compression isotherms (pi-A) and capacitance-potential curves were measured, and a theoretical model was developed to interpret the capacitance data. The compression of lipid monolayers in the presence of DS led to a more condensed hybrid layer, removing the LE-LC phase transition of DPPC. Lower surface pressures improved the binding of DS on the lipid monolayers via calcium bridges due to the electrostatic attraction. Alternating current voltammetry and cyclic voltammetry were used to monitor the transfer of a cationic beta-blocker (metoprolol) across lipid monolayers in the absence and presence of the polyelectrolyte and to compare with the transfer of the standard probe, tetraethylammonium cation. Results showed a strong dependence on (i) the surface pressure, (ii) the applied potential, and, (iii) in the case of the hybrid layer, the charge of the phospholipid headgroup. Finally, results were also confirmed by attenuated total reflection Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, performed after transferring lipid multilayers onto a solid substrate by the LB method.

Dose-related effects of ritodrine and ritodrine combined with metoprolol on urinary excretion rate were studied in anesthetized dogs. Urine production was abruptly reduced after a total dose of 4 of ritodrine. This effect could not be antagonized by metoprolol, although the ritodrine-induced decrease of mean arterial pressure and renal arterial blood flow was significantly inhibited. The possible role of fluid retention during tocolytic treatment, even with beta-adrenergic blockade, in the etiology of pulmonary edema is discussed with a review on recent literature.

Although drug treatment of hypertension is associated with improved survival and decreased vascular complications, drug compliance is a major problem in the control of hypertension. All antihypertensive medications are associated with side effects; thus, it is a physician's responsibility to explain to each patient the side effects of the drugs he prescribes to treat hypertension, and to instill in the patient a sense of necessity for the treatment of hypertension. The choice of antihypertensive drug should be made based on each patient's lifestyle, overall health and ability to tolerate the drug. Ideally, the antihypertensive regimen should be simple, effective, convenient to take and have very few side effects.

Organic micropollutants present in drinking water (DW) may cause adverse effects for public health, and so reliable analytical methods are required to detect these pollutants at trace levels in DW. This work describes the first green analytical methodology for multi-class determination of 21 pollutants in DW: seven pesticides, an industrial compound, 12 pharmaceuticals, and a metabolite (some included in Directive 2013/39/EU or Decision 2015/495/EU). A solid-phase extraction procedure followed by ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry (offline SPE-UHPLC-MS/MS) method was optimized using eco-friendly solvents, achieving detection limits below 0.20 ng L(-1). The validated analytical method was successfully applied to DW samples from different sources (tap, fountain, and well waters) from different locations in the north of Portugal, as well as before and after bench-scale UV and ozonation experiments in spiked tap water samples. Thirteen compounds were detected, many of them not regulated yet, in the following order of frequency: diclofenac > norfluoxetine > atrazine > simazine > warfarin > metoprolol > alachlor > chlorfenvinphos > trimethoprim > clarithromycin ≈ carbamazepine ≈ PFOS > citalopram. Hazard quotients were also estimated for the quantified substances and suggested no adverse effects to humans. Graphical Abstract Occurrence and removal of multi-class micropollutants in drinking water, analyzed by an eco-friendly LC-MS/MS method.

The clinical efficacy of propranolol and metoprolol slow-release tablets (Durules) was compared in 20 patients with typical angina pectoris and concomitant hypertension. During a four-week run-in period all patients were given 80 mg propranolol b.i.d. in a single-blind fashion. Thereafter they were randomised in a double-blind fashion to treatment with either propranolol tablets, 80 mg b.i.d., or metoprolol Durules, 200 mg o.m. After four weeks, treatment was changed according to a cross-over design. The number of anginal attacks and nitroglycerin consumption were recorded by the patients in diary-cards. At the control visits, blood pressure was assessed in the supine and standing positions. No differences were found between the drugs as regards either antianginal or antihypertensive efficacy. Metoprolol Durules 200 mg o.m. are considered to be as effective as propranolol, 80 mg b.i.d. and may be preferred by some patients because of the simple dosage regimen.

Due to the limited number of included trials, there is insufficient evidence to draw any conclusions about the effectiveness of cardiovascular prophylaxis in reducing mortality and cardiovascular events in people with AAA. Further good-quality randomised controlled trials that examine many types of prophylaxis with long-term follow-up are required before firm conclusions can be made.

RMSSL increased strongly both following a short train of stimuli at 2.5 Hz and following catecholamine activation in trabeculae from MI with CHF, resulting in a decrease in Ftw in proportion to RMSSL. RyRS2808 phosphorylation was increased significantly in the left ventricle (LV; approximately 58%, P<0.05) but not in the RV (n.s.) in MI rats with CHF. FK506 tripled high frequency stimulation-induced RMSSL in nonfailing trabecula but did not further enhance RMSSL in failing trabecula. Isoproterenol increased RMSSL in nonfailing trabeculae only modestly despite a substantial increase in RyRS2808 phosphorylation in the RV (approximately 60%, P<0.05). Isoproterenol induced SL fluctuation without an increase in RV-RyRS2808 phosphorylation in failing trabeculae. Chronic beta-blockade decreased high frequency and catecholamine stimulation-induced RMSSL while RyRS2808 phosphorylation in the RV was indistinguishable from that in cMI.

The plasma concentration of metoprolol was measured hourly following an oral dose on two consecutive days--the day before, buy lopressor and the day of, coronary surgery. No significant difference was found between the two sampling days, though there was a tendency to lower concentrations during and after extracorporeal circulation. After a median dose of 50 mg the peak concentration (reached on average after 1.5 h) was 545 +/- 70 nmol/l on the first day and 388 +/- 57 on the day of surgery. The respective elimination rates from plasma, expressed as half-life, were 3.4 +/- 0.21 and 3.5 +/- 0.19 hours (NS). On the day of surgery the heart rate rose during the second half of the observation period, peaking above 130 beats/min. Heart rate was inversely correlated to metoprolol concentration in plasma with coefficient -0.68 before induction of anesthesia and -0.77 two hours after termination of extracorporeal circulation. The perioperative efficacy of beta-blockade following a late preoperative oral dose of the agent thus appeared to be reduced and inadequate.

Spontaneous contractile force of muscle strips isolated from male rabbit urinary bladder dome (detrusor) and base (trigonal muscle) was significantly inhibited by isoproterenol (10(-7)-10(-5) M), a non-specific beta-adrenoceptor agonist or by terbutaline (10(-8)-10(-5) M), a selective beta 2-adrenoceptor agonist. The EC50 values for isoproterenol and terbutaline in detrusor were the same as those in trigonal muscle but the maximum relaxant response to isoproterenol or terbutaline was significantly greater in detrusor than in trigonal muscle. Dobutamine (10(-5)-10(-4) M), a relatively specific beta 1-adrenoceptor agonist caused buy lopressor a small but significant relaxant response in trigonal muscle but no change in detrusor. In trigonal muscle the relaxant response to dobutamine was less than that to terbutaline. The relaxant response to 10(-6) M isoproterenol in detrusor was completely blocked by butoxamine (10(-4) M), a selective beta 2-antagonist or by propranolol (10(-6) M), a non-specific beta-antagonist but not by metoprolol (10(-6)-10(-4) M), a selective beta 1-antagonist. Relaxation of trigonal muscle induced by 10(-6) M isoproterenol was inhibited by 10(-5) M metoprolol by 30%, by 10(-4) M butoxamine by 70%, or completely by 10(-6) M propranolol. These findings are consistent with the view that the density of beta-adrenoceptors is higher in the detrusor than in trigonal muscle, and that the relaxant response to beta-adrenoceptor stimulation is mediated by beta 2-subtype in the detrusor and by both of beta 1- and beta 2-subtypes in trigonal muscle of the male rabbit.

Metoprolol or placebo was gradually withdrawn during 1 week in 115 patients participating in a 3-year, double-blind, postinfarction study. During the first month after withdrawal mental symptoms and increased cardiac symptoms occurred significantly more frequently buy lopressor in the metoprolol group. Disabling symptoms requiring reinstitution of treatment were seen in 14 of 58 in the metoprolol group vs 4 of 57 in the placebo group (p less than 0.05). In the metoprolol group, there was a rebound increase of basal heart rate and of the heart rate response to orthostatic testing during 3 weeks after withdrawal, when compared to values obtained 6 months later. In 27 patients plasma catecholamine levels were analyzed during repeated exercise tests and orthostatic provocations. Plasma norepinephrine and epinephrine responses to exercise were reduced 1 week after completion of withdrawal. At this time norepinephrine levels tended to be lower in relation to heart rate at all work loads. Our laboratory findings may be related to increased beta-adrenoceptor responsiveness, but unmasking of ischemic symptoms probably contributed to the clinical findings.

First-pass elimination takes place when a drug is metabolised between its site of administration and the site of sampling for measurement of drug concentration. Clinically, first-pass metabolism is important when the fraction of the dose administered that escapes metabolism is small and variable. The liver is usually assumed to be the major site of first-pass metabolism of a drug administered orally, but other potential sites are the gastrointestinal tract, blood, vascular endothelium, lungs buy lopressor , and the arm from which venous samples are taken. Bioavailability, defined as the ratio of the areas under the blood concentration-time curves, after extra- and intravascular drug administration (corrected for dosage if necessary), is often used as a measure of the extent of first-pass metabolism. When several sites of first-pass metabolism are in series, the bioavailability is the product of the fractions of drug entering the tissue that escape loss at each site. The extent of first-pass metabolism in the liver and intestinal wall depends on a number of physiological factors. The major factors are enzyme activity, plasma protein and blood cell binding, and gastrointestinal motility. Models that describe the dependence of bioavailability on changes in these physiological variables have been developed for drugs subject to first-pass metabolism only in the liver. Two that have been applied widely are the 'well-stirred' and 'parallel tube' models. Discrimination between the 2 models may be performed under linear conditions in which all pharmacokinetic parameters are independent of concentration and time. The predictions of the models are similar when bioavailability is large but differ dramatically when bioavailability is small. The 'parallel tube' model always predicts a much greater change in bioavailability than the 'well-stirred' model for a given change in drug-metabolising enzyme activity, blood flow, or fraction of drug unbound. Many clinically important drugs undergo considerable first-pass metabolism after an oral dose. Drugs in this category include alprenolol, amitriptyline, dihydroergotamine, 5-fluorouracil, hydralazine, isoprenaline (isoproterenol), lignocaine (lidocaine), lorcainide, pethidine (meperidine), mercaptopurine, metoprolol, morphine, neostigmine, nifedipine, pentazocine and propranolol. One major therapeutic implication of extensive first-pass metabolism is that much larger oral doses than intravenous doses are required to achieve equivalent plasma concentrations. For some drugs, extensive first-pass metabolism precludes their use as oral agents (e. g. lignocaine, naloxone and glyceryl trinitrate).(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 400 WORDS)

The PDD were much higher than the DDD for several frequently prescribed drugs. Consequently, the daily drug costs exceeded the drug costs based on DDD. Evaluations of drug costs on the basis for DDD require careful interpretation. Moreover, the number of DDD alone is not a valid measurement for the appropriateness of drug therapy buy lopressor and can only give a rough estimate of the number of patients treated, at least for the drug groups in this study.

In this paper, a simple, rapid and sensitive flow-injection chemiluminescence method has been developed for the determination of metoprolol tartrate, which acts as a kind of sensitizer in the chemiluminescence emission from the redox of SO(3)(2-) with Ce(IV) in acidic medium. Under the optimized conditions, the proposed method allows the measurement of metoprolol tartrate over the range of 1.5 x 10(-8) to 7.3 x 10(-6)mol/L with a detection limit of 4.7 x 10(-9)mol/L (3sigma), and the relative standard deviation for 7.3 x 10(-7)mol/L metoprolol tartrate ( buy lopressor n=11) is 2.20%. The utility of this method was demonstrated by determining metoprolol tartrate in tablets and human urine sample.

α-Melanocyte-stimulating hormone (α-MSH) regulates important physiological functions including energy homeostasis and inflammation. Potent analogs of α-MSH, [Nle(4), D-Phe(7)]-α-MSH (NDP-α-MSH) and melanotan-II (MT-II), are widely used in pharmacological studies, but the hemodynamic effects associated with their systemic administration have not been thoroughly examined. Therefore, we investigated the hemodynamic actions of these compounds in anesthetized and conscious C57Bl/6N mice using peripheral routes of administration. NDP-α-MSH and MT-II induced mild changes in blood pressure and heart rate in anesthetized mice compared to the effects observed in conscious mice, suggesting that anesthesia distorts the hemodynamic actions of α-MSH analogs. In conscious mice, NDP-α-MSH and MT-II increased blood pressure and heart rate in a dose-dependent manner, but the tachycardic effect was more prominent than the pressor effect. Pretreatment with the melanocortin (MC) 3/4 receptor antagonist SHU9119 abolished these hemodynamic effects Zofran 6 Mg . Furthermore, the blockade of β(1)-adrenoceptors with metoprolol prevented the pressor effect and partly the tachycardic action of α-MSH analogs, while the ganglionic blocker hexamethonium abrogated completely the difference in heart rate between vehicle and α-MSH treatments. These findings suggest that the pressor effect is primarily caused by augmentation of cardiac sympathetic activity, but the tachycardic effect seems to involve withdrawal of vagal tone in addition to sympathetic activation. In conclusion, the present results indicate that systemic administration of α-MSH analogs elevates blood pressure and heart rate via activation of MC(3/4) receptor pathways. These effects and the consequent increase in cardiac workload should be taken into account when using α-MSH analogs via peripheral routes of administration.

The cardiovascular effects of dopamine are different before and during thoracic epidural anesthesia (TEA). To evaluate underlying adrenoceptor-mediated mechanisms, dopamine effects were investigated in nine chloralose-anesthetized dogs. The circulatory response to dopamine (0-40 was studied before and during TEA, and during TEA after introducing the alpha 1-antagonist prazosin (0.3, the alpha 2-antagonist rauwolscine (0.3, and the beta 1-antagonist metoprolol (0.5 TEA decreased mean arterial pressure (MAP) by 29%, cardiac output (CO) by 36%, heart rate (HR) by 27%, and the maximum rate of change of left ventricular pressure (LVdP/dt) by 52%. Systemic vascular resistance, pulmonary vascular resistance and mean pulmonary artery pressure (MPAP) remained unaltered by TEA. Dopamine-induced increases in MAP and HR were augmented by TEA. Both MAP and LVdP/dt increased above pre-TEA levels at 10 Prazosin attenuated the increases in MAP and MPAP by dopamine. Adding rauwolscine almost abolished the dopamine response in MAP and MPAP. Metoprolol almost eliminated the dopamine effects on CO and LVdP/dt. Only minor alterations in cardiac filling pressures were observed during the study. Plasma norepinephrine (NE) concentration was lower during than before TEA at corresponding dopamine infusion rates. NE was reduced by the beta 1-blockade. During TEA, the plasma dopamine levels were generally higher, and they were further increased by adding beta 1-blockade. In conclusion, myocardial contractility and arterial pressure were restored to pre-TEA values by Sinequan 60 Mg dopamine at 5-10 TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Proton transport pathways in isolated superfused rabbit cortical connecting (CNT) and collecting tubules (CCD) were determined using the fluorescent pH-sensitive dye BCECF following acid or base load by exposure to NH4Cl. Following removal of NH4Cl which results in a rapid decline in pHi two mechanisms appear to be responsible for pHi recovery, a Na-independent NEM-sensitive H efflux with a slow activity, which was virtually absent in 30% of the segments tested and a second rapid Na-dependent H efflux. In CCD this latter pathway was shown to have an apparent Km for (Na+) Atarax 6 Mg e of 38.2 +/- 0.4 mM (S.D., n = 7) and was sensitive to EIPA. Similar results were obtained with the CNT. With regard to the H pump in six out of ten CCD isoproterenol (200 nM) resulted in a 2-fold stimulation of H pump activity. These effects of isoprenaline were inhibited both by the non-specific beta-adrenoceptor antagonist propranolol as well as by the specific b1 antagonist metoprolol. Interestingly, these stimulatory effects of this beta agonist, which is known to stimulate cAMP formation in rabbit CCD, were not reproduced by the addition of exogenous cAMP analogues db cAMP (0.1 mM), CPT cAMP (0.1 mM), 8 Br-cAMP (0.1 mM) or the addition of forskolin (0.3 mM). In conclusion, these data obtained in isolated rabbit CNT and CCT demonstrate the presence of an active Na-H exchange which is for the most part responsible for the recovery of pHi. It should be noted also that the contribution of the H pump to pHi regulation appears to be negligible in these segments.

Monocytes play an important role Seroquel 350 Mg in humoral as well as in cell-mediated immunity. In the present study, the influences of the anti-migraine preparations metoprolol, propranolol, metoclopramide, acetylsalicylic acid, dihydro-ergotamine and sumatriptan on monocyte chemotaxis were examined in vitro. First, mononuclear cells were isolated by centrifugation from venous blood samples obtained from 10 healthy male volunteers. Chemotaxis was determined using a microchemotaxis chamber. While metoprolol, metoclopramide, dihydroergotamine and sumatriptan did not influence monocyte chemotaxis, high doses of propranolol and acetylsalicylic acid caused a significant (p < or = 0.001) inhibition of this important cellular function. Therefore, it is quite possible that both drugs produce adverse immunological effects in vivo in cases of high dosage or obstruction of elimination.

The effect of therapy on exercise performance during a 3-year follow-up after acute myocardial infarction (AMI) was evaluated in a double-blind randomized comparison between 154 patients given metoprolol (100 mg twice daily) and 147 patients given placebo. Exercise tests were performed 1.5, 6, 12, 24 and 36 months after AMI. Maximal accomplished workloads were similar in the 2 groups throughout follow-up. Maximal heart rate was significantly higher in the placebo-treated group throughout the study (p less than 0.001). At the 6-week test more patients in the placebo group terminated exercise due to angina pectoris (40 vs 25%, p less than 0.05) and showed exercise-induced ST-depressions (38 vs 27%, p = 0.05) compared with the Botox Cost Forehead metoprolol group. Exercise-induced ventricular arrhythmias were significantly more common in the placebo group during the initial 6 months. Death, another AMI or both were significantly reduced by metoprolol treatment in patients with exercise-induced ST depression greater than or equal to 1 mm at the 6-week test. In a multiple logistic regression analysis maximal accomplished workload at 6 weeks (p less than 0.026), male sex (relative risk [rr] = 3.57, p = 0.016), previous AMI (rr = 3.07, p = 0.001), therapy with placebo (rr = 2.14, p = 0.007) and left ventricular failure (rr = 2.04, p = 0.023) were shown to carry independent prognostic information as well as exercise-induced ST-depression (greater than or equal to 1 mm) in placebo-treated patients (rr = 2.70, p = 0.01).

Helical strips of bovine rostral cerebral arteries (anterior cerebral, middle cerebral, and internal carotid artery) responded to norepinephrine with contractions, whereas the caudal cerebral arteries (posterior communicating, posterior cerebral, and basilar artery) relaxed in response to the amine. After blockade of alpha-adrenoceptors, norepinephrine-induced rostral artery contractions were reversed to relaxations, which were smaller than those in the caudal arteries. Isoproterenol, dobutamine, and terbutaline produced greater relaxations in caudal than in rostral arteries, but forskolin relaxed these arteries to a similar magnitude. The isoproterenol-induced relaxation was not affected by removal of the endothelium. Maximal relaxations induced by terbutaline in caudal arteries were much inferior to those by isoproterenol, norepinephrine, and dobutamine. Relaxations caused by isoproterenol, norepinephrine, and terbutaline in the caudal arteries were attenuated by metoprolol, but not influenced by butoxamine. Relaxations mediated possibly by beta 1-adrenoceptor subtypes are greater in bovine caudal cerebral arteries than in the rostral arteries. The heterogeneity does not appear to be associated with the different ability of cyclic AMP to relax arterial smooth muscle but with the difference of beta-adrenoceptor populations and/or processes from the receptors to adenylate cyclase.
