Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors enhance contractile function of myocardium "stunned" by a brief episode of coronary artery occlusion, yet their mechanism(s) of action remain unresolved. In addition to possible hemodynamic effects, ACE inhibitors may stimulate the synthesis of cardioprotective prostaglandins. Furthermore, the beneficial effects of ACE inhibitors that contain a sulfhydryl group may be due in part to the ability of thiol compounds to act as nonspecific antioxidants or direct scavengers of cytotoxic oxygen-derived free radicals. To investigate this question we compared the effects of (1) the sulfhydryl-containing ACE inhibitor zofenopril, (2) the sulfhydryl-containing stereoisomer of captopril (SQ 14,534) with essentially no ACE inhibitor properties, (3) the nonsulfhydryl-containing ACE inhibitor enalaprilat, and (4) solvent alone, given at the time of reperfusion, on recovery of contractile function after 15 minutes of coronary occlusion in the anesthetized open-chest dog. Segment shortening in control animals remained depressed or "stunned" after reperfusion, recovering to only -5 +/- 12% of baseline preocclusion values at 3 hours after reperfusion. In contrast, all three treatment agents attenuated postischemic dysfunction: segment shortening was restored to 33 +/- 12%, 54 +/- 6%, and 83 +/- 5% of baseline values at 3 hours after reflow in dogs treated with SQ 14,534 (p less than 0.05), zofenopril (p less than 0.01), and enalaprilat (p less than 0.01), respectively (all vs control value). These improvements in segment shortening did not appear to be the result of altered oxygen supply or demand after reperfusion, inasmuch as no significant differences in systemic hemodynamic parameters or myocardial blood flow were observed among the groups. In the second phase of the study, we found that the improved contractile function associated with enalaprilat treatment could largely be reversed by infusion of the potent cyclooxygenase inhibitor indomethacin: segment shortening was reduced from 69 +/- 12% at 2 hours after treatment/reperfusion to 38 +/- 12% at 2 hours after indomethacin infusion (p less than 0.01 vs 2 hours after reperfusion). Infusion of indomethacin had no effect, however, on the improved contractile function associated with zofenopril treatment. We therefore conclude that sulfhydryl- versus nonsulfhydryl-containing agents enhance contractile function of stunned myocardium by different mechanisms of action: enalaprilat attenuates postischemic dysfunction at least in part by a prostaglandin-mediated mechanism, whereas the salutary effects of zofenopril and SQ 14,534 may be due in part to the antioxidant properties of the sulfhydryl moiety.

It has been suggested that enalaprilat inhibits the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system in plasma and tissue; it may therefore reduce portal vascular pressure owing to secondary hyperaldosteronism in patients with liver cirrhosis. In order to evaluate this concept, 20 patients with hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg)-positive liver cirrhosis and portal hypertension received an intravenous infusion of 2.5 mg of enalaprilat. Wedged hepatic venous pressure, free hepatic venous pressure and cardiac index were measured before, immediately after, and then 15 min, 30 min and 1 h after intravenous enalaprilat infusion. The mean pressure gradient between wedged hepatic venous pressure and free hepatic venous pressure was significantly decreased, by 13% immediately after, 18% at 15 min, 23% at 30 min and 13% at 1 h after infusion of enalaprilat. Thirteen patients experienced a decrease of hepatic venous pressure gradient (HVPG) greater than 5 mmHg, another three 3-5 mmHg and the remaining four patients exhibited no significant change in HVPG. Systemic haemodynamic indices, including pulmonary arterial pressure, pulmonary capillary wedge pressure and central venous pressure, decreased significantly at 15 and 30 min after enalaprilat infusion (P < 0.01). Liver function, renal function and blood routine before and after enalaprilat infusion showed no significant change. There were no adverse effects during or after enalaprilat infusion. We conclude that enalaprilat infusion can quickly and safely reduce the hepatic venous pressure gradient in patients with HBsAg-positive cirrhosis.

In tissues rich in kallikrein, vasodilator kinins, acting as paracrine hormones, may play a role in the local regulation of blood flow. We studied the role of kinins in the regulation of blood flow in the rat submandibular gland using a kinin analogue with antagonistic properties, [DArg0]Hyp3-Thi5-8[DPhe7]bradykinin. When infused into the carotid artery (20 micrograms/min/rat), this antagonist blocked the effect of bradykinin (25-250 ng/kg, intracarotid injection) on glandular blood flow. In nephrectomized rats, the antagonist also blocked the increase in glandular blood flow caused by enalaprilat, a kininase II converting enzyme inhibitor. At a dose of 20 micrograms/min/rat, the antagonist produced no detectable change in basal glandular blood flow; however, at a higher dose (100 micrograms/min/rat), it caused a significant decrease (p less than 0.001). In eight of 10 rats, blood flow decreased by 75% or more; this effect was not blocked by the alpha-adrenergic receptor antagonist phentolamine. After antagonist infusion was stopped, blood flow returned toward normal. Sympathetic nerve stimulation of the gland induced vasoconstriction followed by poststimulatory vasodilatation. In rats displaying severe vasoconstriction after the antagonist, postsympathetic vasodilatation was abolished even when stimulation was performed after the antagonist infusion had been stopped and blood flow returned toward normal. Although a direct vasoconstrictor effect of the kinin antagonist cannot be completely ruled out, these data suggest that, in the rat submandibular gland, kinins may play a role in regulation of basal blood flow and vasodilatation after converting enzyme inhibitor or sympathetic stimulation.

The effects of angiotensin II and its precursors angiotensin I and tetradecapeptide renin substrate were investigated in isolated segments of the rat caudal artery. Each peptide constricted the rat caudal artery and also enhanced vasoconstrictor responses to sympathetic nerve stimulation (0.5 Hz, 10 s). The threshold concentrations for each peptide in enhancing sympathetic vasoconstrictor responses were lower than those required to produce vasoconstriction. Tetradecapeptide renin substrate was the least potent of the three peptides and had the slowest onset of action. Angiotensin II and angiotensin I each enhanced noradrenergic transmission to the same degree, whether perfused through the lumen or added to the adventitial surface of the artery. In contrast, tetradecapeptide renin substrate was more potent when applied to the adventitial surface. The effects of angiotensin I were blocked by the converting enzyme inhibitor enalaprilat, whereas the effects of tetradecapeptide renin substrate were unaltered by enalaprilat, or by the renin inhibitors pepstatin or a decapeptide renin inhibitor. These findings suggest that tetradecapeptide renin substrate and angiotensin I may be converted to angiotensin II within the rat caudal artery, with subsequent enhancement of noradrenergic neuroeffector function. However, the enzyme responsible for the conversion of tetradecapeptide renin substrate cannot be determined from the present findings.

Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors differ in their ability to inhibit tissue ACE. This study was, therefore, undertaken to determine whether high tissue affinity ACE inhibitors would improve endothelial function and thereby decrease tissue necrosis during ischemia.

The effect of a novel enzyme (PreR-Co) that activates renal prorenin was studied on rabbit aortas with and without endothelium. It was tested 1) in the basal tone of nonstimulated or ANG II-sensitized rings or rings precontracted with norepinephrine (NE), PGF(2alpha), high KCl concentration, and 2) in rings pretreated with enalaprilat, losartan, PD-123319, N(omega)-nitro-l-arginine methyl ester, HOE-140, indomethacin, or serine protease inhibitors (PMSF, aprotinin, or soybean trypsin inhibitor); kallilkrein and bradykinin were also tested in ANG II-sensitized rings. PreR-Co produced a vasorelaxant effect in the basal tone and in the precontracted rabbit aorta. The effect was endothelium independent, potentiated by endothelium removal or nitric oxide (NO) synthase inhibition, and abolished by boiling the enzyme. In addition, the effect improved when basal tone was increased in ANG II-sensitized aortic rings or in precontracted vessels. No activation of the ANG II, bradykinin, prostaglandin, or NO pathway mediating the PreR-Co response could be obtained, suggesting a direct action of the enzyme. This action seems to be dependent on esterasic activity because serine protease inhibitors like PMSF and aprotinin were able to block the vasorelaxant effect of PreR-Co.

The pressure-diameter relation was measured in the descending aorta in 120 subjects. In an additional group of 6 subjects, transient vena caval occlusion produced 5 sets of pressure-diameter data. We found that the best fit curve of the pooled pressure-diameter data was a third-order polynomial. A polynomial equation was used to calculate the sigmoid line of elasticity in the entire population and after the administration of diltiazem (15 patients) or enalaprilat (10 patients). The sigmoid line of elasticity was significantly different with respect to age (P<0.001), history of hypertension (P<0.004), and hypercholesterolemia (P<0.02). The difference between the transition point and the peak systolic pressure was increased in normal subjects compared with patients (P<0.0001). The sigmoid line shifted leftward and upward with diltiazem, but it remained unchanged with enalaprilat. During an average of 3 years of follow-up, 19 of 88 patients developed stroke (n=4), unstable angina (n=8), acute myocardial infarction (n=4), or acute pulmonary edema (n=3).

Enalaprilat possessed sufficient stability to be formulated as an aqueous eyedrop solution with a shelf-life of several years at room temperature. The maximum decline in IOP after topical administration of one drop of 2.9% enalaprilat solution was 6.2 +/- 0.7 mmHg at 4 hours after administration. Duration of activity exceeded 10 hours. A 1% enalaprilat solution lowered IOP by 4.4 +/- 0.8 mmHg at 4 hours after administration and had similar duration, and was more potent than 0.5% timolol. The enalapril maleate eyedrops resulted in delayed action, showing maximum potency at 10-22 hours after administration and duration of up to 32 hours.

The objective of the study was to determine if bradykinin-induced airway microvascular leakage in rats was altered by pretreatment of animals with enalaprilat, an inhibitor of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE), or phosphoramidon, an inhibitor of endopeptidase 24.11 (EP 24.11). We found that the intravascular infusion of bradykinin induced microvascular leakage of Evans blue dye in tracheal tissue (0.088 +/- 0.035 micrograms/mg tissue) that was significantly amplified by pretreatment with 3.27 mM enalaprilat (0.458 +/- 0.226 micrograms/mg tissue), but not by pretreatment with 10 mM phosphoramidon (0.082 +/- 0.0453 micrograms/mg tissue). Leakage in carinal tissue was also amplified by pretreatment with 3.27 mM enalaprilat (0.205 +/- 0.050 vs. 0.036 +/- 0.006 micrograms/mg tissue for bradykinin alone), whereas no amplification was observed in parenchymal tissue by pretreatment with either inhibitor. These findings indicate that in the rat, ACE, but not EP 24.11, modulates bradykinin-induced airway microvascular leakage following intravascular infusion of these agents.

The purpose of the present review article is to update the information regarding pharmacokinetics of drugs in patients with heart failure that has accumulated since the last review article published in 1988 in Clinical Pharmacokinetics. Since this last review, our understanding of the pathophysiology of heart failure has changed from the cardio-renal model to the neuro-humoral model, and the pharmacologic approach to treatment of heart failure has been shifted from inotropic agents to those acting on the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. The pharmacologic agents now used for heart failure include many important classes of drugs, such as ACE inhibitors, angiotensin receptor blockers (antagonists) (ARBs), and mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists. In Part 1 of this review, we summarized the pharmacokinetic properties of relevant drugs administered intravenously. In Part 2, the present article, we describe pharmacokinetics of drugs following oral administration. For this purpose we conducted a systematic search of literature using MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Japan Centra Revuo Medicina (in Japanese). We retrieved a total of 110 relevant publications for 49 drugs and updated the information for ten drugs and provided new information for 31 drugs. We recognized that the pharmacokinetic data were obtained primarily from stable heart failure patients with moderate severity [New York Heart Association (NYHA) class II or III]. In addition, most patients were classified as heart failure with reduced ejection fraction. Furthermore, because most of the studies retrieved had no comparative groups of healthy subjects or patients without heart failure, historical controls from previous studies were used for comparisons. In Part 2, we also discuss the pharmacokinetics of active metabolites as well as parent drugs, because many drugs given by oral administration for the treatment of heart failure are prodrugs (e.g., ACE inhibitors and ARBs). The pharmacokinetic changes of drugs in patients with heart failure are discussed in the light of a physiologically based pharmacokinetic model. In addition, we discuss the effects of intestinal tissue heart failure-associated edema on drug absorption as it relates to the biopharmaceutical classification system, particularly for drugs demonstrating reduced systemic exposure as measured by the area under the plasma concentration-time curve after oral administration (AUCpo) in patients with heart failure as compared with healthy subjects. After review of the available data, it was seen that among patients with asymptomatic or compensated chronic heart failure there seemed to be no or minimal alterations in the maximum concentration (C max) and AUCpo of the included drugs, unless there was concurrent liver and/or renal dysfunction. In contrast, the AUCpo of at least 14 drugs (captopril, cilazaprilat, enalapril/enalaprilat, perindopril, carvedilol, candesartan, pilsicainide, felodipine, furosemide, enoximone, milrinone, flosequinan, molsidomine, and ibopamine) were suspected or documented to increase after oral administration by 50% or more in patients with symptomatic or decompensated heart failure.

To judge the efficacy of converting enzyme inhibitors in the management of congestive heart failure, it is necessary to interpret this in the context of the factors that stimulate renin release and the subsequent formation of angiotensin and aldosterone. The pharmacologic properties of individual converting enzyme inhibitors must be considered, and the alterations in both renin angiotensin activity and long-term converting enzyme inhibition that interact in complementary or offsetting ways to influence the long-term therapeutic result must be understood.

Sprague-Dawley rats were used and were divided into four groups: (1) Sham group received an ileum transection (n = 6); (2) Sham + ACE-I group received an ileum transaction and lavage with ACE inhibitor (ACE-I, enalaprilat, 2 mg/kg/day) (n = 6); (3) SBS group received a 70 % mid-intestinal resection (n = 6); (4) SBS + ACE-I group received a 70 % mid-intestinal resection and lavage with enalaprilat (2 mg/kg/day) (n = 6). Sampling was done 10 days after surgery. ECs apoptosis was studied by TUNEL staining. ACE, angiotensin II (ANGII) receptor type 1 (AT1R) and receptor type 2 (AT2R) expressions were detected with RT-PCR and immunofluorescent confocal microscopy.

Extensive hemodynamic monitoring was carried out in all patients. Plasma concentrations of endothelin-1, angiotensin II, soluble thrombomodulin, and soluble adhesion molecules (endothelial leukocyte adhesion molecule-1, intercellular adhesion molecule-1, vascular cell adhesion molecule-1, and granule membrane protein-140) were measured from arterial blood samples. All measurements were carried out before the start of the infusion ("baseline" values) and daily during the following 5 days. All endothelial-derived substances (thrombomodulin, endothelin-1, and all soluble adhesion molecules) were similarly increased beyond normal in both group. Endothelin-1 increased only in the untreated control patients (from 6.9 +/- 0.7 to 14.3 +/- 1.4 mg/mL). Soluble thrombomodulin increased in the untreated control patients (from 58 +/- 9 to 79 +/- 14 ng/mL [p < .05]), but significantly decreased in the enalaprilat-treated patients. Soluble adhesion molecules increased in the untreated control group (endothelial leukocyte adhesion molecule from 92 +/- 14 to 192 +/- 29 ng/mL; intercellular adhesion molecule-1 from 480 +/- 110 to 850 +/- 119 ng/ mL) and returned almost to normal values in the enalaprilat patients. The survival rate did not differ significantly between the two groups. Control patients developed severe sepsis and septic shock more often than the enalaprilat-treated group.

Greater protein intake increases glomerular eicosanoid production in rats. Bilateral ureteral obstruction (BUO) also enhances glomerular eicosanoid production in experimental animals. To examine the effects of dietary protein intake on glomerular eicosanoid production in ureteral obstruction, we measured the in vitro production of the vasodilatory prostaglandins, PGE2, and 6-keto PGF1 alpha, and the vasoconstrictor, TxB2, and the mass of cyclooxygenase in glomeruli of sham-operated control (SOC) rats and rats with BUO of 24 hr duration fed a low- (6% casein) or a high- (40% casein) protein diet for approximately 4 weeks. The animals were pretreated or not with the angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor, enalaprilat, prior to sham-operation or ureteral obstruction. Glomeruli from SOC rats fed a high-protein diet produced significantly greater amounts of PGE2, 6-keto PGF1 alpha, and TxB2, and had substantially increased mass of cyclooxygenase when compared with glomeruli from SOC rats fed a low-protein diet. Pretreatment of animals with enalaprilat prior to sham operation prevented the increase in glomerular eicosanoid production and cyclooxygenase content in SOC rats fed a high-protein diet and the levels observed were similar to those in SOC rats fed a low-protein diet. Both eicosanoid production and cyclooxygenase mass were further increased in glomeruli from rats with BUO fed a high-protein diet when compared with glomeruli of SOC rats fed the same diet. The increased levels of these measurements in BUO rats fed a high-protein diet fell markedly when the rats were pretreated with enalaprilat in vivo. The values were essentially comparable to those of SOC rats fed a low-protein diet. By contrast, there was no substantial increase in the production of PGE2, 6-keto PGF1 alpha, and TxB2 and in the mass of cycloxygenase in glomeruli of BUO versus SOC rats fed a low-protein diet. Enalaprilat did not affect glomerular eicosanoid production or cyclooxygenase content in SOC and BUO rats fed a low-protein diet. Taken together, the present study indicates that dietary protein affects BUO-induced increases in glomerular eicosanoid production by altering the activity of the cyclooxygenase pathway mainly via the reninangiotensin system. Thus, protein content in a diet may modify an alteration in renal hemodynamics caused by BUO by changing the glomerular production of eicosanoids and the activity of the renin-angiotensin system.

Dynamic capillary electrophoresis (DCE) and computer simulation of the elution profiles with the stochastic model has been applied to determine the isomerization barriers of the angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor enalaprilat. The separation of the rotational cis-trans isomeric drug has been performed in an aqueous 20 mM borate buffer at pH 9.3. Interconversion profiles featuring plateau formation and peak broadening were observed. To evaluate the rate constants k(cis-->trans) and k(trans-->cis) of the cis-trans isomerization from the experimental electropherograms obtained by dynamic capillary electrophoresis, elution profiles were analyzed by a simulation with iterative convergence to the experimental data using the ChromWin software which requires the total migration times of the individual isomers t(R), the electroosmotic break-through time t(0), the plateau height h(plateau), the peak widths at half height of the individual isomers w(h), as well as the peak ratio of the isomers as experimental data input. From temperature-dependent measurements between 0 degrees and 15 degrees C the thermodynamic parameters Delta G, Delta H and Delta S, the rate constants k(cis-->trans) and k(trans-->cis) and the kinetic activation parameters Delta G*, Delta H*, and Delta S* of the cis-trans isomerization of enalaprilat were obtained. From the activation parameters the isomerization barriers at 37 degrees C were calculated to be Delta G* (trans-->cis) = 87.2 kJ.mol(-1) and Delta G*(cis-->trans) = 91.9 kJ.mol(-1).

In chronic renal failure, the clearance of most ACE inhibitors including enalapril is reduced. Hence, with conventional dosage, plasma enalaprilat may be markedly elevated. It is unclear whether this excess of drug exposure affords an improved control of blood pressure. The aim of the present study was to evaluate short-term blood pressure response to two different plasma levels of enalaprilat.

Magnesium (Mg) deficiency enhances tissue sensitivity to ischemic damage, an effect reversed not only by Mg, but also by sulfhydryl (SH)-containing compounds. We therefore created an in vitro model of red blood cell ischemia to investigate whether the protective effects of these compounds might be related to effects on intracellular free Mg (Mg(i)) content. (31)P-nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy was used to measure the high-energy metabolites ATP and 2,3-diphosphoglycerate (DPG) and Mg(i) and inorganic phosphate (P(i)) levels in erythrocytes before and for 6 hours after progressive oxygen depletion in the presence or absence of SH-compounds, including captopril, N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC), penicillamine, and N-(2-mercaptopropionyl)-glycine (MPG). Under basal aerobic conditions, captopril increased Mg(i) in a dose- and time-dependent fashion (174.5+/-5.3 to 217.1+/-5.1 micromol/L, P<0. 05 at 100 micromol/L, 60 minutes). The SH compounds NAC, penicillamine, and MPG but not the non-SH compound enalaprilat also significantly raised Mg(i) in erythrocytes (P<0.05). With oxygen deprivation, a consistent decrease occurred in both ATP and 2,3-DPG levels associated with a rise in P(i) and in the P(i)/2,3-DPG ratio used as an index of high-energy metabolite depletion. Captopril, compared with control, retarded the rise in P(i) and reduced the P(i)/2,3-DPG ratio (P<0.008 and P<0.025 at 4 and 6 hours, respectively). Furthermore, the higher the initial Mg(i) and the greater the captopril-induced rise in Mg(i), the greater the metabolite-protective effect (r=0.799 and r=0.823, respectively; P<0. 01 for both). Altogether, the data suggest that Mg influences the cellular response to ischemia and that the ability of SH compounds such as captopril to ameliorate ischemic injury may at least in part be attributable to the ability of such compounds to increase cytosolic free Mg levels.

The possibility of an impaired hepatic de-esterification of enalapril to enalaprilat due to hepatic dysfunction was assessed in seven patients with compensated liver cirrhosis and 10 normal control subjects. The peak serum concentration and time to the peak serum concentration of enalaprilat, as well as the suppression of serum angiotensin converting enzyme activity, following a single oral dose of enalapril maleate (10 mg) were not different in the two groups. The elimination half-life of enalaprilat was related to renal function. The results suggest that hepatic biotransformation of the drug may not be disturbed in a clinically significant manner in patients with moderate hepatic dysfunction due to compensated liver cirrhosis.

The purpose of this study was to compare the acute hypotensive efficacy of different types of inhibitor of the renin-angiotensin system. A renin inhibitor (RI), CGP 44,099 A, a converting enzyme inhibitor (CEI), enalaprilat, a peptidic angiotensin II (Ang II) antagonist, [Sar1, Ile8]Ang II (P-Ang IIA), and a nonpeptidic Ang II antagonist devoid of agonistic properties, 2-butyl-4-chloro-1- ([2'-(1H-tetrazol-5-yl)biphenyl-4-yl]methyl)-5- (hydroxymethyl)imidazol (NP-Ang IIA), were administered intravenously to sodium-depleted rats (SDRs), renal hypertensive rats (two-kidney, one-clip) (RHRs), and spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs). The four compounds were all effective in lowering blood pressure (BP) in SDRs and RHRs. The maximum hypotensive response observed within 30 min of administration was similar for all four compounds (approximately 30 mm Hg in SDRs and 60 mm Hg in RHRs). In SHRs, the P-Ang IIA induced a pressor response whereas the RI, CEI, and NP-Ang IIA lowered BP to a similar extent (approximately 15 mm Hg). Pretreatment with the CEI completely prevented the hypotensive response to RI in SHRs, and vice versa. These observations indicate that the principal mechanism by which converting enzyme inhibitors lower BP after acute administration in these rat models is by inhibition of the formation of Ang II. The pressor response to the P-Ang IIA in SHRs is probably a consequence of its partial agonistic properties.

The aim of the present study was to establish the effect of intravenous administration of indomethacin (10 mg/kg), potent inhibitor of prostaglandin synthesis, on hemodynamic parametrs after intravenous administration of propranolol (0.3 mg/kg) and enalaprilat (0.5 mg/kg) in rabbits. The following parameters were estimated: mean arterial blood pressure, heart rate, cardiac output and total peripheral resistance. Blood pressure was measured directly in the carotid artery, heart rate was counted according to ECG, cardiac output and total peripheral resistance were calculated using the method of human 125J albumin dilution. For statistical analysis, the average change in the examined parametres was calculated. Indomethacin significantly increased mean arterial pressure without altering other hemodynamic parameters. Combined intravenous administration of indomethacin with enalaprilat or propranolol abolished hypotensive effect of both drugs. Indomethacin magnified the effect of propranolol on total peripheral resistance and abolished the effect of enalaprilat on this parameter. Co-administration of indomethacin with propranolol or enalaprilat did not influence significantly heart rate and cardiac output in comparison with the effect of both antihypertensive drugs alone. This may indicate the predominant role of the influence of indomethacin on vascular tone in the observed interaction.

Previous experimental and simulation studies have alluded to the presence of a diffusional barrier for enalaprilat, the polar, dicarboxylic acid metabolite of enalapril, entering hepatocytes. The present study examined the roles of diffusional clearances of drug and metabolite on the distribution and elimination characteristics in liver. The hepatic intrinsic clearances for enalapril (26.1 ml/min) and enalaprilat (0.7 ml/min), found in a previous study, were buy vasotec used for simulation because, along with their given diffusional clearances (75 and 2 ml/min, respectively), they yielded a high extraction ratio for drug (E = 0.86) and a poor extraction ratio for the preformed metabolite (E = 0.05). While maintaining the intrinsic clearances and hepatic blood flow rate (10 ml/min) constant, only drug and metabolite diffusional clearances were altered. The liver was modeled as three (blood, liver tissue, and bile) compartments, with blood flowing into sinusoids of uniform length L. Blood (sinusoidal) and tissue concentrations of drug and generated and preformed metabolites, at any point x along L and under linear kinetic conditions, were approximated numerically by computer simulations and expressed as the length-averaged or mean concentrations. The factors underlying drug and metabolite (preformed and generated) concentrations, hepatic clearances and elimination rates, and their interrelationships were illustrated graphically, emphasizing the roles of diffusional clearances for drug and metabolite on their spatial distributions and elimination in liver.

The present study was undertaken to investigate the influence of captopril and enalaprilat--two different angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors--on experimental cardiac arrhythmias induced by barium chloride, ouabain or adrenaline. The research was carried out on rabbits. Captopril and enalaprilat were administered only once. Arrhythmias were evoked by three different doses of arrhythmogens: ED50 and two higher ones causing buy vasotec rhythm disturbances in 80-100% rabbits. The patterns of arrhythmias as well as their frequency and duration were evaluated on the basis of ECG examination. The results were subjected to statistic analysis. As a result of our research, we were able to establish that ACE inhibitors, when administered at a single dose, did not influence the patterns but changed the frequency and duration of barium chloride-, adrenaline- or ouabain-induced arrhythmias. Captopril and enalaprilat administered at a single dose decreased the frequency of barium chloride- or ouabain- but not adrenaline-induced arrhythmia. A single administration of captopril and enalaprilat limit the duration of arrhythmias caused by barium chloride, ouabain or adrenaline.

Nitric oxide synthase inhibition in the kidney enhances tubuloglomerular feedback (TGF) responsiveness. This may reflect either the effect of reduced basal nitric oxide (NO) availability or the effect of impaired NO release that buy vasotec is physiologically induced by TGF activation. However, it is unknown whether the latter actually takes place. In this study, it was hypothesized that NO is released (from macula densa cells or endothelium) as part of the normal TGF loop, and mitigates the TGF response. In Sprague Dawley rats, TGF responsiveness was assessed (fall in tubular stop flow pressure, deltaSFP, upon switching loop of Henle perfusion rates from 0 to 40 nl/min) during an intrarenal NO clamp (systemic infusion of nitro-L-arginine, 10 microg/kg per min, followed by intrarenal nitroprusside infusion adjusted to restore renal blood flow [RBF]). This maneuver was presumed to fix intrarenal NO impact at a physiologic level. To validate the approach, TGF responsiveness during an intrarenal angiotensin II (AngII) clamp (systemic infusion of enalaprilat 0.2 mg/kg per min, followed by intrarenal AngII infusion) was also studied. AngII is presumed to modulate but not mediate, TGF, thus not to increase as part of the TGF loop. In untreated animals, RBF was 7.4 +/- 0.4 ml/min, and deltaSFP was 5.7 +/- 1.6 mmHg. Nitro-L-arginine infusion alone reduced RBF to 5.3 +/- 0.5 ml/min (P < 0.05); with nitroprusside infusion, RBF was restored to 8.3 +/- 0.7 ml/min. In this condition (NO clamp), deltaSFP was markedly increased to 19.6 +/- 3.2 mmHg (P < 0.05). By contrast, deltaSFP, which was virtually abolished during enalaprilat alone (0.2 +/- 0.3 mmHg), was not significantly different from controls during AngII clamp (8.2 +/- 1.0 mmHg). These data suggest that NO may well be released upon TGF activation. By contrast, AngII is not dynamically involved in TGF activation, but may modulate the TGF response. Thus, dynamic release of NO during TGF activation mitigates the TGF response, so that it will offset the action of a primary, as yet undefined, vasoconstrictor mediator. The source of this NO, macula densa or endothelium, remains to be elucidated.

Imidapril is a newly synthesized non-sulfhydryl-containing angiotensin I converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. The present study describes the inhibitory effects of imidapril and its active metabolite 6366A on ACEs from various tissues and compares its effects to those of captopril, enalapril and enalaprilat in vitro. 6366A inhibited swine renal and human serum ACEs with an inhibition constant (Ki) of 0.067 nM and 0.04 nM, respectively. These values were 3 buy vasotec to 18 times more potent than those of the other inhibitors. The kinetic study showed that 6366A exerted competitive type inhibition. The ACE inhibition (IC50 values) of 6366A, enalaprilat and the structurally related compounds (6366DM and 6366PY) were compared in homogenates of lung, aorta, heart, brain and kidney from spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs) and Wistar Kyoto rats (WKYs). The inhibitory effects of 6366A on all tissue ACEs from SHRs and WKYs were the most potent among these compounds. And the inhibitory potencies of these compounds were correlated with their chemical structure. The present results suggest that 6366A may show a strong inhibitory effect on ACEs from several tissues and species due to its chemical characteristics.

We performed an IRB-approved retrospective cohort study of patients who presented to the emergency department of a large urban academic hospital. Patients were identified by pharmacy record and included if they received enalaprilat intravenous (IV) bolus in the setting of acute hypertensive HF. A total of 103 patients were included. Patients were hypertensive on presentation (systolic blood pressure [SBP] = 195.2 [SD ± 32.3] mmHg) with significantly elevated mean NT-proBNP levels (3797.8 [SD ± 6523.2] pg/ml). The mean dose of enalaprilat was 1.3 [SD ± 0.7] mg, with most patients (76.7%) receiving a single 1.25 mg bolus. By 3  buy vasotec h post-enalaprilat, SBP had decreased substantially (-30.5 mmHg) with only 2 patients (1.9%) developing hypotension. Renal function was unaffected, with no significant change in serum creatinine by 72 h. In the 30 days post-admission, patients spent an average of 23 [SD ± 7.5] days alive and out of hospital.

At all levels of sodium intake sodium balances were equal, but daily urinary excretions of dopamine and DOPA were higher (P < 0 buy vasotec .01) in the ADPKD patients than in the controls. Renal vascular resistance, filtration fraction and blood pressure were higher in the ADPKD patients (all P < 0.05) while plasma renin activity was similar. DOPAi.v. normalized renal haemodynamics and increased plasma endothelin in ADPKD patients (all P < 0.05), while stimulation of natriuresis was equal in both groups. Enalaprilate increased plasma endothelin in the ADPKD patients and only partially normalized renal haemodynamics.

Hypertension with renal artery stenosis is associated with both an activated renin-angiotensin system and elevated sympathetic activity. Therefore, in this condition it may be favorable to use a therapeutic modality that does not reflexly increase heart rate, renin secretion, and sympathetic nervous activity. The purpose of the present study was to assess overall, renal, and muscle sympathetic activity after short-term administration of an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (enalaprilat) and a nonspecific vasodilator (dihydralazine) to hypertensive patients with renal artery stenosis. Forty-eight patients undergoing a clinical investigation for renovascular hypertension were included in the study. An isotope dilution technique for assessing norepinephrine spillover was used to estimate overall and bilateral renal sympathetic nerve activity. In 11 patients simultaneous intraneural recordings of efferent muscle sympathetic nerve activity were performed. Thirty minutes after dihydralazine administration, mean arterial pressure fell by 15%, whereas plasma angiotensin II, muscle sympathetic nerve activity, heart rate, and total body norepinephrine spillover increased (P<0.05 for all). In contrast, after enalaprilat administration a fall in arterial pressure similar to that for dihydralazine was followed by decreased angiotensin buy vasotec II levels and unchanged muscle sympathetic nerve activity, heart rate, and total body norepinephrine spillover, whereas renal norepinephrine spillover increased by 44% (P<0.05). Acute blood pressure reduction by an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor provokes a differentiated sympathetic response in patients with hypertension and renal artery stenosis, inasmuch that overall and muscle sympathetic reflex activation are blunted, whereas the reflex renal sympathetic response to blood pressure reduction is preserved.

The extent to which the natriuretic effect of a prolonged low dose infusion of atrial natriuretic factor (30 ng/kg/min) is dependent on interference with the prevailing intrarenal actions of angiotensin II was examined before and after blockade of angiotensin production with the converting enzyme inhibitor enalaprilat (5 mg/kg). Lithium clearance was used to assess proximal tubular sodium and water reabsorption. Atrial natriuretic factor and enalaprilat caused similar increases in sodium excretion (10-fold and sevenfold, respectively) and glomerular filtration rate (each 34%) and similar decreases in fractional proximal reabsorption of sodium (17% and 13%, respectively) and blood pressure. Each also caused a major disruption in the effectiveness of proximal glomerulotubular balance (30% and 50% of perfect balance). Infusion of atrial natriuretic factor during converting enzyme inhibition increased glomerular filtration rate further by 23%, reaching 63% above control without change in renal blood flow but with a rise in filtration fraction to 0.48. Sodium excretion increased further but fractional proximal sodium reabsorption remained constant and proximal glomerulotubular balance appeared to improve. Atrial natriuretic factor therefore possesses a glomerular action that persists during converting enzyme inhibition and is indeed additive to the removal of angiotensin II when the proximal effect of atrial natriuretic factor is no longer apparent. It is concluded that failure of atrial natriuretic factor to further suppress fractional proximal sodium reabsorption during converting enzyme inhibition is caused by either prior removal of the stimulatory action of angiotensin II on proximal tubular transport or extreme changes in buy vasotec peritubular physical factors consequent on the high filtration fraction.

Increasing evidence suggests that angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors can increase vascular nitric oxide (NO) production. Recent studies have found that combined inhibition of ACE and neutral endopeptidase (NEP) may have a greater beneficial effect in the treatment of heart failure than inhibition of ACE alone. Amlodipine, a calcium channel antagonist, has also been reported to have a favorable effect in the treatment of patients with cardiac dysfunction. The purpose of this study was to determine whether and the extent to which all of these agents used in the treatment of heart failure stimulate vascular NO production. Heart failure was induced by rapid ventricular pacing in conscious dogs. Coronary microvessels were isolated from normal and failing dog hearts. Nitrite, the stable metabolite of NO, was buy vasotec measured by the Griess reaction. ACE and NEP inhibitors and amlodipine significantly increased nitrite production from coronary microvessels in both normal and failing dog hearts. However, nitrite release was reduced after heart failure. For instance, the highest concentration of enalaprilat, thiorphan, and amlodipine increased nitrite release from 85 +/- 4 to 156 +/- 9, 82 +/- 7 to 139 +/- 8, and 74 +/- 4 to 134 +/-10 pmol/mg (all *p <.01 versus control), respectively, in normal dog hearts. Nitrite release in response to the highest concentration of these two inhibitors and amlodipine was reduced by 41% and 31% and 32% (all #p <.01 versus normal), respectively, in microvessels after heart failure. The increase in nitrite induced by either ACE or NEP inhibitors or amlodipine was entirely abolished by Nw-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester, HOE 140 (a B2-kinin receptor antagonist), and dichloroisocoumarin (a serine protease inhibitor) in both groups. Our results indicate that: 1) there is an impaired endothelial NO production after pacing-induced heart failure; 2) both ACE and NEP are largely responsible for the metabolism of kinins and modulate canine coronary NO production in normal and failing heart; and 3) amlodipine releases NO even after heart failure and this may be partly responsible for the favorable effect of amlodipine in the treatment of heart failure. Thus, the restoration of reduced coronary vascular NO production may contribute to the beneficial effects of these agents in the treatment of heart failure.

We postulated that nitric oxide (NO)-mediated endothelial function would be improved by acute and short-term treatment with an angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor in patients with type I diabetes mellitus, in whom endothelial function is depressed. Nine type I diabetic patients and eight healthy subjects underwent forearm blood flow measurement using strain gauge plethysmography during intraarterial infusion of incremental doses of endothelium-dependent (acetylcholine [ACh]) and endothelium-independent (sodium nitroprusside [SNP]) vasodilators. Pretreatment ACh responses were depressed in diabetic patients relative to the normal subjects (P < 0.05). No difference between the groups was evident in response to SNP. Acute ACE inhibition (with intrabrachial enalaprilat) enhanced ACh responses in the diabetic patients (P < 0.005), with a further improvement evident after 1 mo of oral therapy with enalapril (P < 0.001) when Cleocin Renal Dosing ACh responses were normalized. ACE inhibition did not affect SNP responses. We conclude that acute administration of the ACE inhibitor, enalaprilat, enhances NO-mediated endothelial function in type I diabetic patients, with further improvement evident after 4 wk of enalapril therapy.

We examined the antioxidant effects of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor on 1-methyl-4-phenylpyridinium ion (MPP+)-induced hydroxyl radical (*OH) formation in extracellular fluid of rat striatum. Rats were anesthetized and sodium salicylate in Ringer's solution (0.5 nmol microl(-1) min(-1) was infused through a microdialysis probe to detect the generation of *OH, as reflected by the non-enzymatic formation of 2,3-dihydroxybenzoic acid (DHBA) in the striatum. MPP+ clearly produced an increase in *OH formation in a concentration-dependent manner. When imidaprilat was infused Sinemet Cr Dosage in MPP+ -pre-treated animals, the formation of dopamine and 2,3-DHBA significantly decreased, as compared with that in the MPP+ -only-treated group. We compared the ability of two non-SH-containing angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (imidaprilat and enalaprilat) with an SH-containing angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (captopril) to scavenge *OH. All three angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors were able to scavenge *OH generated by the action of MPP+. However, the changes produced by captopril and enalaprilat were not significant. When dopamine was administered to the MPP+ -pre-treatment group, a marked elevation was observed, showing a positive linear correlation between dopamine and *OH formation (2,3-DHBA) in the dialysate. Moreover, when iron (II) was administered to the MPP+ -pre-treatment group, the same results were obtained: a positive linear correlation (R2 = 0.989) between the release of dopamine and 2,3-DHBA (R2 = 0.989) in the dialysate. When corresponding experiments were performed with imidaprilat-pre-treated animals, the level of 2,3-DHBA decreased. These results suggested that angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors may protect against MPP+ -induced *OH formation in the rat striatum.

Hormonal, Coumadin Reversal Drug clinical, and transport parameters were investigated in patients given intraperitoneal enalaprilat and oral enalapril. Standardized 2-L exchanges were performed during a control period, following 2.5 mg intraperitoneal enalaprilat and after a week of oral enalapril. Inulin, blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and creatinine clearances, and glucose absorption were determined during these exchanges.

vasotec drug interactions 2016-07-30

The interactions of the converting enzyme inhibitors captopril and enalaprilat and the angiotensin II receptor antagonist saralasin with cardiac autonomic neuroeffector transmission were investigated in guinea pig isolated atria. Noradrenergic transmitter stores were radiolabeled by incubation with [3H]-noradrenaline. In other atria, cholinergic transmitter stores were radiolabeled by incubation with [3H]-choline. Neither captopril nor enalaprilat significantly altered the resting or stimulation-induced (2 Hz, 30 s) efflux of radioactivity in atria that had been incubated with either [3H]-noradrenaline or [3H]-choline. Saralasin also did not significantly alter the resting or stimulation-induced efflux in Glucophage 500mg Cost atria incubated with [3H]-choline. However, in atria incubated with [3H]-noradrenaline, saralasin slightly increased the resting efflux without altering the stimulation-induced efflux. The findings of the present study suggest that neither captopril, enalaprilat, nor saralasin interferes with either noradrenergic or cholinergic transmitter release.

1. The converting enzyme inhibitors, captopril (SQ14 225, Squibb) or enalaprilic acid (MK 422, Merck Sharp and Dohme), were used to evaluate the role of angiotensin II in sodium (Na) appetite of Na-deplete rats given a choice of water and 0.5 mol/l NaCl to drink. Also, the effect of these drugs on taste was evaluated in water-deprived Na-replete rats and in Na-deplete rats given a choice of NaCl, sucrose and water. 2. Intraperitoneal (i.p.) injection of furosemide (20 mg/kg) increased urinary Na loss by 1.3-1.4 mmol and subsequent Na intake by 1.5-1.8 mmol. This increase in Na Celebrex 300 Mg intake was abolished by a high dose of captopril (50 mg/kg, i.p.) or enalaprilic acid (80 mg/kg, i.p.), but was enhanced by a low dose of captopril (50 micrograms/kg, i.p.). 3. There was no clear evidence that either captopril or enalapril affected taste for NaCl, sucrose or water in water-deprived Na-replete rats. However, the high dose of captopril or enalapril decreased the intake of NaCl and sucrose in Na-deplete rats. 4. Thus, while the results are consistent with the possibility that angiotensin II is involved in Na appetite induced by Na depletion and that the difference between the high and low doses of converting enzyme inhibitors on Na appetite may be related to their relative effectiveness in blocking angiotensin I conversion at central sites, the observation that sucrose intake is decreased by high dose converting enzyme inhibitor in Na-deplete rats suggests that other actions of the converting enzyme inhibitors may be involved.

These results showed that: (a) RAS molecules are present in human islets and their expression is sensitive to glucose concentration, (b) ACE inhibitors, and in particular zofenoprilat, protect human islets Low Dose Viagra from glucotoxicity and (c) the effects of ACE inhibition are associated with decreased oxidative stress. Together, these findings provide evidence that the possible beneficial effects of ACE inhibitors in human diabetes are due, at least in part, to a protective action on pancreatic beta-cells.
