The *2 and *3 alleles of CYP2C9, with decreased enzymatic activity, are highly polymorphic and contribute to inter-individual differences in pharmacotherapy of CYP2C9 substrates. Here, we sought for a simplified theoretical method to predict the pharmacokinetic changes with minimal in vivo data.

cozaar overdose treatment

The pulmonary vasoconstriction induced by acute hypoxia was significantly attenuated during losartan infusion, while Psa, SVR, CO, pH, PaCO(2), PaO(2) and base excess did not differ between groups. During room air, Ppa, PVR, Psa, SVR and CO values were not modified by saline or losartan infusion.

The potential for nasal delivery of losartan, a drug with poor oral bioavailability, was investigated using Calu-3 cells. Epithelial permeation of the drug with or without dimethyl-beta-cyclodextrin (DM-beta-CD) and glycocholate was investigated. Possible transport mechanism of the compound and epithelial mucosal tolerance were screened. Reversibility of epithelial membrane perturbation was also investigated by measuring transepithelial electrical resistance (TEER) recovery over a 24-h period following drug formulation exposure. The permeability coefficient of losartan was 1.3 + or - 0.5 x 10(-6) cm s(-1). This flux was not significantly different from that of formulations containing DM-beta-CD (0.5 and 1.0%) or glycocholate (0.5%). However, the formulation with 1.0% glycocholate significantly increased losartan permeation 7-fold. Losartan flux across the cells was concentration-dependent. Serosal to mucosal permeation was significantly higher than mucosal to serosal permeation. Concentration-dependency, as well as polarity in transport indicated that the flux of the compound across Calu-3 cells was not limited to passive diffusion. Cells exposed to DM-beta-CD (0.5 and 1.0%) and glycocholate (0.5%) caused no significant change in TEER and mitochondrial dehydrogenase activity (MDH). The results of the study showed that losartan may be a suitable drug candidate for nasal delivery.

Pertinent studies were selected through extensive searches of PubMed (1966 to 29 December 2007), Embase (1980 to 29 December 2007), and the Cochrane library (29 December 2007). Randomized clinical trials comparing telmisartan with losartan in patients with hypertension were selected using predefined criteria. The main efficacy measures were reduction in diastolic and systolic BP (DBP and SBP), and therapeutic response of DBP and SBP. The pooled estimates were carried out using RevMan version 4.2 software.

Women who suffered from preeclampsia (PE) have an increased risk for cardiovascular and renal diseases later in life. Although the exact mechanisms underlying this relationship are unknown, they may relate to an increased sensitivity to angiotensin II (Ang-II) and endothelial dysfunction during a preeclamptic pregnancy, which may persist after PE. Recently, we showed vascular hypersensitivity to Ang-II and disturbed endothelial cell function in experimental PE in rats as compared to healthy pregnant rats.

Suppression of the formation of angiotensin II (A II) is thought to be a major contributor to the hemodynamic response to angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibition (ACE-inhibitor) therapy. However, during ACE-inhibitor treatment, A II plasma levels may also recover through tissue chymase. This study has attempted to verify the feasibility, safety and tolerability of a combined treatment using captopril (75 mg/day) and losartan (25 mg/day), and to ascertain its ability to reduce the formation and action of A II in the early post-infarction phase of reperfused anterior myocardial infarction (AMI).

Nineteen sheep underwent coronary ligation to create a moderate-sized anteroapical infarction. Post-MI day 2, sheep were randomized to therapy with ramipril (ACEI, n = 5) or ramipril plus losartan (CT, n = 6) or none (untreated, n = 8). Infarct size was similar between groups. At 8 weeks post-MI, myocytes were isolated from regions adjacent to and remote from the infarct to measure morphometric indices (cell volume, length, cross-sectional area, width) and parameters of contraction (% shortening and -dL/dt, rate of shortening) and relaxation (+dL/dt [rate of relengthening] and TR 70% [time for 70% relengthening]). Volume % collagen was measured from adjacent and remote regions. Adjacent myocyte volume was different between groups (2.5 +/- 0.1 x 10(4) microm(3) in CT, 3.0 +/- 0.4 x 10(4) microm(3) in ACEI, 3.5 +/- 0.2 x 10(4) microm(3) in untreated, analysis of variance [ANOVA] P =.001) as was length (158 +/- 4 microm, 161 +/- 9 microm, 189 +/- 8 microm, respectively, ANOVA P <.001). Adjacent cell volume and length in CT were lower than untreated (P <.05). Percent shortening and -dL/dt of isolated adjacent myocytes were improved with both ACEI (7.9 +/- 0.3%, -131 +/- 6 microm/sec, P <.05) and CT (7.7 +/- 0.3%, -144 +/- 8 microm/sec, P <.05) compared with no therapy (6.4 +/- 0.4%, -104 +/- 7 microm/sec), as was both +dL/dt and TR 70%. No between-group difference in volume % collagen was found in adjacent or remote regions.

CYP2C9 is a polymorphic enzyme that metabolizes a number of clinically important drugs. In this study, catalytic activities of seven alleles found in Japanese individuals, CYP2C9*3 (I359L), *13 (L90P), *26 (T130R), *28 (Q214L), *30 (A477T), *33 (R132Q), and *34 (R335Q), were assessed using three substrates (diclofenac, losartan, and glimepiride). When expressed in a baculovirus-insect cell system, the holo and total (apo and holo) CYP2C9 protein expression levels were similar among the wild type (CYP2C9.1) and six variants except for CYP2C9.13. A large part of CYP2C9.13 was present in the apo form P420. Compared with CYP2C9.1, all variants except for CYP2C9.34 exhibited substrate-dependent changes in K(m), V(max), and intrinsic clearance (V(max)/K(m)). For diclofenac 4'-hydroxylation, the intrinsic clearance was decreased markedly (by >80%) in CYP2C9.13, CYP2C9.30, and CYP2C9.33 and variably (63-76%) in CYP2C9.3, CYP2C9.26, and CYP2C9.28 due to increased K(m) and/or decreased V(max) values. For losartan oxidation, CYP2C9.13 and CYP2C9.28 showed 2.5- and 1.8-fold higher K(m) values, respectively, and all variants except for CYP2C9.34 showed >77% lower V(max) and intrinsic clearance values. For glimepiride hydroxylation, the K(m) of CYP2C9.13 was increased 7-fold, and the V(max) values of all variants significantly decreased, resulting in reductions in the intrinsic clearance by >80% in CYP2C9.3, CYP2C9.13, CYP2C9.26, and CYP2C9.33 and by 56 to 75% in CYP2C9.28 and CYP2C9.30. These findings suggest the necessity for careful administration of losartan and glimepiride to patients bearing these six alleles.

Two murine monoclonal antibodies were produced to losartan (DuP 753), a nonpeptide angiotensin II receptor antagonist. Using a solid phase competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), each antibody was examined for its ability to bind to a set of losartan analogs that differ structurally in varying degrees. Both antibodies distinguished fine structural changes in the analogs, particularly at the R5 position of the imidazole ring. No cross-reactivity towards either antibody was observed with the natural ligand angiotensin II, the peptide antagonist saralasin, or the AT2 selective nonpeptide antagonist PD123177.

Endogenous angiotensin II does not contribute to the acute local maintenance of basal peripheral vascular tone in healthy man except under conditions of renin-angiotensin system activation such as sodium depletion.

cozaar drug class

Sixty-eight drugs were selected for the analysis. For each drug, theoretical dissolution (R d) and absorption (R a) rates at estimated dosing intervals (1, 30, 60, 90, 120, and 240 min) were calculated using the Noyes-Whitney formula and compartment analysis, respectively. The optimal thresholds for R d and R a (R dth and R ath) were estimated by comparing the results with those of previous drug interaction studies for six drugs. Four drug interaction risk categories for 68 drugs at each dose interval were defined according to the indices of dissolution and absorption against their thresholds.

The known angiotensin II (AngII) physiological effect of aldosterone synthesis and secretion is mediated by either Gq/11 proteins or βarrestin1 (βarr1), both of which can couple to its type 1 receptors (AT₁Rs), present in adrenocortical zona glomerulosa (AZG) cell membranes. In the present study, we examined the relative potencies of all the currently used in the clinic AT₁R antagonist drugs (angiotensin receptor blockers, ARBs, or sartans) at preventing activation of these two signaling mediators (G proteins and βarrs) at the AngII-bound AT1R and, consequently, at suppression of aldosterone in vitro. All ARBs were found to be potent inhibitors of G protein activation at the AT₁R. However, candesartan and valsartan were the most potent at blocking AngII-induced βarr activation at this receptor, among the tetrazolo-biphenyl-methyl derivatives, translating into excellent efficacies at aldosterone suppression in H295R cells. Conversely, irbesartan and losartan were largely G protein-selective inhibitors at the AT₁R, with very low potency towards βarr inhibition. As a result, they were very weak suppressors of βarr1-dependent aldosterone production in H295R cells. These findings provide important pharmacological insights into the drug class of ARBs and medicinal chemistry insights for future drug development in the field of AngII antagonism.

In type 2 diabetes the degree of albuminuria is strongly related to progression of diabetic renal disease, as well as to the risk for cardiovascular complications. If normoalbuminuria is maintained, the risk of diabetic nephropathy is very low. In individuals with microalbuminuria, the rate of decline in glomerular filtration rate is closely related to the degree of albuminuria, and regression to normoalbuminuria slows down the rate of decline in renal function. Data from the LIFE-diabetes subgroup showed that levels of albuminuria well below what is usually defined as microalbuminuria, strongly predicted risk for cardiovascular complications. This indicates that when albuminuria is used as a risk predictor for cardiovascular events, so called normal values should be redefined. Traditional values for normo-micro-macroalbuminuria are primarily defined as predictors for the risk of development of diabetic nephropathy. In the LIFE-diabetes subgroup we found that reduction in albuminuria was more pronounced in losartan-based as compared with atenolol-based treatment. The benefit in favor of losartan was partly related to its major influence on albuminuria. Individuals with the highest baseline values of albuminuria had the greatest benefit in terms of reduction in cardiovascular morbidity and mortality on losartan as compared with atenolol. The level of albuminuria during treatment was closely related to the risk for cardiovascular events. We conclude that tiny amounts of albuminuria, well below traditional levels for microalbuminuria, predict cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Reduction in albuminuria during treatment translates to reduction in cardiovascular events. Monitoring of albuminuria should be an integrated part of management of hypertension in diabetic as well as nondiabetic patients.

MAP was 113 +/- 11 mmHg at baseline and decreased to 99 +/- 10 mmHg during the administration of Hct + Dox and to 92 +/- 10 mmHg during Hct + Dox + Los. This decrease in MAP was caused by a decrease in SVR (P = 0.0009). Pretreatment with Hct + Dox or Hct + Dox + Los had no effect on glomerular filtration rate or RBF. Infusion of L-NAME during the administration of Hct + Dox resulted in an augmented (P < 0.0001) increase in MAP (18%), SVR (61%) and RVR (70%) compared with those observed with placebo (8, 30 and 49%, respectively). This augmentation was abolished by losartan.

The expression of renal MT3-MMP mRNA in group B (1.37+/-0.96) was significantly stronger than those in group A (0.75+/-0.34, P<0.05) and in group C (0.75+/-0.30, P<0.05). The mRNA expression of renal TIMP2 in group B (0.73+/-0.37) was significantly increased as compared with group A (0.32+/-0.19, P<0.05) and group C (0.34+/-0.17, P<0.05), with a higher mRNA expression of renal TGFbeta1 in group B (0.53+/-0.20 vs 0.26+/-0.13 in group A and 0.29+/-0.15 in group C, P<0.05). UAE in group B (2.18+/-1.98 mg) was significantly higher than those in groups A and C (0.41+/-0.47 mg/d, P<0.05; 0.65+/-0.89 mg/d, P<0.05, respectively). The glomerular basement membrane thickness (532+/-108 nm) and the MM density (56.4+/-6.8) were significantly greater in group Bthan in the other two groups (P<0.05).

Losartan is a specific angiotensin II receptor antagonist. Although the teratogenic effects of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors are well documented there are limited reports of losartan induced fetal toxicity. The authors report a case of incomplete ossification of skull bones, transient oliguria and feed intolerance in a newborn following in-utero exposure to losartan.

The pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of losartan and its active metabolite, E-3174, were studied in 8 stable, hypertensive continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients. Following a 1-week washout period, subjects received 100 mg of losartan orally for 7 days. On Days 1 and 7, hemodynamic and hormonal responses were determined, as were PK parameters on Day 7. Peritoneal equilibration testing was performed pre-Day 1 and on Day 7. AUC0-24 and t1/2 for losartan and E-3174 were 95 +/- 49.9 micrograms.min/mL and 176 +/- 82.1 micrograms.min/mL and 172.5 +/- 86.7 minutes and 628 +/- 575 minutes, respectively. These values are similar to those of normal subjects and subjects on hemodialysis. Peritoneal clearance of losartan and E-3174 was negligible. All subjects demonstrated a substantial reduction in blood pressure with at least a 10 mmHg drop in diastolic BP. Plasma renin activity (PRA) values increased, but aldosterone, endothelin, norepinephrine, and epinephrine values did not change following 7 days of losartan. Losartan was well tolerated in all study subjects.

A convenient and facile synthesis, in silico docking studies and in vitro biological evaluation of N-substituted 5-butylimidazole derivatives as potent Angiotensin II (ANG II) receptor type 1 (AT1) blockers (ARBs) has been reported in the current study. Our efforts have been directed towards the development of an efficient synthetic route allowing the facile introduction of substituents on the imidazole ring. In particular, a series of imidazole based compounds bearing the biphenyl moiety at the N - 1 position, a halogen atom at the C-4 and polar substituents such as hydroxymethyl, aldo or carboxy group at the C-2 position were designed and synthesized. These compounds were evaluated for binding to human AT1 receptor and for ANG II antagonism in vitro on isolated rat uterus. Among them, 5-butyl-1-[[2'-(2H-tetrazol-5-yl)biphenyl-4-yl]methyl]imidazole-2-carboxylic acid (30) exhibited higher binding affinity compared to the other analogues tested (-log IC(50) = 8.46). The latter analogue was also found to be the most active in the rat uterotonic test (pA(2) = 7.83). Importantly, the binding affinity was higher to that of losartan (-log IC(50) = 8.25) indicating the importance of carboxy group at the C-2 position. Experimental findings are in good agreement with docking studies, which were undertaken in order to investigate ligand/AT1 receptor interactions.

losartan cozaar reviews 2017-01-09

At least four independent studies in different clinical settings showed that angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors ( buy cozaar ACE-Is) such as enalapril effectively decrease plasma levels of circulating adhesion molecules (cAMs). To examine whether this effect may be mediated by the decreased action of angiotensin, we compared the effects of enalapril with the direct angiotensin-II antagonist, losartan, on plasma levels of cAMs, and monocyte chemotactic protein-1 (MCP-1). In a randomized trial, we recruited 32 untreated patients (19 male, aged 59+/-13 years) with hypertension, who received either enalapril (mean dose 17 mg/day) or losartan (mean dose 77 mg/day) at equipotent doses. Enalapril decreased plasma levels of all cAMs after 8 weeks of treatment: cE-selectin levels decreased by 13% (P=0.007), intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (cICAM-1) by 15% (P=0.002) and vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (cVCAM-1) by 19% (P=0.003). Similarly, enalapril decreased plasma levels of MCP-1 by 13% (P<0.001). Losartan did not significantly change cAM or MCP-1 plasma concentrations after 8 weeks of treatment: cE-selectin levels decreased by 3%, cICAM-1 by 5%, cVCAM-1 by 8%, whereas MCP-1 increased by 2% (all P=NS; not significant). The enalapril effect on percentage changes of cVCAM-1 was significantly different from losartan (P=0.0429). Eight weeks of antihypertensive treatment with enalapril but not losartan, significantly decreased plasma levels of cAMs and MCP-1 in hypertensive patients. The beneficial effects of ACE-Is on cAMs may have implications for atherogenesis and the reduction of cardiovascular events, which cannot be fully explained by their antihypertensive effects alone.

After mean (SD) follow-up of 4.8 (0.9) years, the Losartan Intervention for Endpoint Reduction in Hypertension study composite end point of CV death, nonfatal myocardial infarction, or stroke occurred in 1096 patients. In Cox regression models controlling for treatment type, baseline Framingham risk score, baseline, and in buy cozaar -treatment blood pressure and for severity of baseline ECG LVH by Cornell product and Sokolow-Lyon voltage, lower in-treatment ECG LVH by Cornell product and Sokolow-Lyon voltage were associated with 14% and 17% lower rates, respectively, of the composite CV end point: adjusted hazard ratios (HRs) of 0.86 (95% confidence interval [CI], 0.82-0.90; P < .001) for every 1050 mm . ms (1 SD) decrease in Cornell product and 0.83 (95% CI, 0.78-0.88; P < .001) for every 10.5 mm (1 SD) decrease in Sokolow-Lyon voltage. In parallel analyses, lower Cornell product and Sokolow- Lyon voltage were each independently associated with lower risks of CV mortality (HR, 0.78; 95% CI, 0.73-0.83; P < .001; HR, 0.80; 95% CI, 0.73-0.87; P < .001), of myocardial infarction (HR, 0.90; 95% CI, 0.82-0.98; P = .011; HR, 0.90; 95% CI, 0.81-1.00; P = .043), and of stroke (HR, 0.90; 95% CI, 0.84-0.96; P = .002; HR, 0.81; 95% CI, 0.75-0.89; P < .001). Regression of ECG LVH was also associated with significantly reduced risks of sudden cardiac death, new-onset atrial fibrillation, hospitalization for heart failure, and new-onset diabetes mellitus.

Before the commencement of ARB, no differences were found between the buy cozaar two groups, neither in mean blood pressure (MBP: D group/non-D group: 120 +/- 13 vs. 115 +/- 14 mmHg) nor in left ventricular mass index (LVMI: D/non-D: 172 +/- 41 vs. 165 +/- 41 g/m2). During the 24r-month follow-up, there were significant and similar reductions in MBP in both groups. In respect to LVMI, a significant reduction of LVMI was found in the D group after six months (p < 0.01 vs. basal) with a final reduction rate (FRR) -26 +/- 13%, whereas in the non-D group it was found at 24 months (p < 0.01 vs. basal) with FRR -11 +/- 16% (p < 0.01 vs. D group). There were significant differences between the two groups at all points (p < 0.05 at 6, 18 and 24 months, p < 0.005 at 12 months, respectively).

The renin-angiotensin system (RAS) influences cancer biology and is frequently dysregulated in malignancy. However, regulation of tumor local RAS remains poorly understood. Hypoxia buy cozaar is a hallmark of solid tumors and affects nearly every major aspect of cancer biology. Previous studies have shown that hypoxia can regulate RAS expression in somatic tissues and cells. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of hypoxia on local RAS expression in mouse Lewis lung carcinoma (LLC) cells. For hypoxia treatment, LLC cells were cultured in a hypoxia incubator or treated with hypoxia-mimetic cobalt chloride. Hypoxia up-regulated angiotensin II, angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE), and angiotensin II type 1 receptor (AT1R), and down-regulated ACE2 and angiotensin II type 2 receptor in LLC cells. Captopril, an ACE inhibitor, and losartan, an AT1R blocker, decreased expression of ACE and AT1R, but increased expression of ACE2 and angiotensin II type 2 receptor in LLC cells under hypoxia. Captopril and losartan also suppressed vascular endothelial growth factor-A expression in LLC cells under hypoxia. These findings suggest that hypoxia induces dysregulation of local RAS in LLC cells. The pathophysiological importance of hypoxia-induced RAS dysregulation and potentially therapeutic effects of RAS inhibitors on hypoxic tumor cells should be further examined.

The objective is to elucidate the effect of nitric oxide (NO)-renin-angiotensin system (RAS) interactions on renal hemodynamic function in uncomplicated, type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM). In 14 salt-replete, male healthy volunteers (C) and 9 male DM patients on euglycemia, glomerular filtration rate (GFR), renal blood flow (RBF), filtration fraction (FF), and sodium excretion (UNaV) were measured at baseline and during a 90-min infusion of 3.0 μg·kg⁻¹·min⁻¹ NG-nitro-L-arginine-methyl-ester (L-NAME) after 3 days of pretreatment with either placebo (PL) or 50 mg losartan (LOS). Baseline GFR, RBF, and FF were higher in DM (P < 0.005). In the C group, PL + L-NAME caused declines in GFR (101 ± 3 to 90 ± 3 ml·min⁻¹·1.73 m⁻²), RBF (931 ± 22 to 754 ± 31 ml·min⁻¹·1.73 m⁻²), and UNaV (158 ± 12 to 82 ± 18 μmol/min) and an increase in FF (0.19 ± buy cozaar 0.02 to 0.21 ± 02; P < 0.001), which were not influenced by LOS pretreatment (P > 0.05 for LOS + L-NAME-C vs. PL + l-NAME-C). In DM, PL + L-NAME resulted in exaggerated renal effects, with changes in GFR (128 ± 3 to 104 ± 3 ml·min⁻¹·1.73 m⁻²), RBF (1,019 ± 27 to 699 ± 34 ml·min⁻¹·1.73 m⁻²), UNaV (150 ± 13 to 39 ± 14 μmol/min), and FF (0.22 ± 0.03 to 0.26 ± 0.02) that were significantly greater vs. PL + L-NAME-C (P < 0.005). LOS pretreatment blunted GFR, RBF, FF, and UNaV responses to L-NAME in DM (P < 0.005 vs. PL + L-NAME-DM), resulting in a response profile that was similar to PL + L-NAME and LOS + L-NAME in C (P > 0.05). Renal responses to L-NAME in uncomplicated, type 1 DM are exaggerated vs. C, consistent with an upregulation of NO bioactivity. LOS, without effects in C, prevents the accentuated actions of L-NAME in DM, thus indicating an augmented role for NO-RAS interactions in renal hemodynamic function in DM.

The role of the endogenous apelin system in pregnancy is not well understood. Apelin's actions in pregnancy are further complicated by the expression of multiple forms of the peptide. Using radioimmunoassay (RIA) alone, we established the expression of apelin content in the chorionic villi of preeclamptic (PRE) and normal pregnant women (NORM) at 36-38 wk of gestation. Total apelin content was lower in PRE compared with NORM chorionic villi (49.7±3.4 vs. 72.3±9.8 fmol/mg protein; n=20-22) and was associated with a trend for lower preproapelin mRNA in the PRE. Further characterization of apelin isoforms by HPLC-RIA was conducted in pooled samples from each group. The expression patterns of apelin peptides in NORM and PRE villi revealed little or no apelin-36 or apelin-17. Pyroglutamate apelin-13 [(Pyr1)-apelin-13] was the predominant form of the peptide in NORM and PRE villi. Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) activity was higher in PRE villi (572.0±23.0 vs. 485.3±24.8 pmol·mg(-1)·min(-1); n=18-22). A low dose of ANG II (1 nM; 2 h) decreased apelin release in NORM villous explants that was blocked by the ANG II receptor 1 (AT1) antagonist losartan. Moreover, losartan enhanced apelin release above the 2-h baseline levels in both NORM and PRE villi (P<0.05). In summary, these studies are the first to demonstrate the lower apelin content in human placental chorionic villi of PRE subjects using quantitative RIA. (Pyr1)-apelin-13 is the predominant form of endogenous apelin in the chorionic villi of NORM and PRE. The potential mechanism of lower apelin expression in the PRE villi may involve buy cozaar a negative regulation of apelin by ANG II.

Emerging data show that ARBs are effective in hypertension, left ventricular hypertrophy, postmyocardial infarction, and heart failure. To what extent their pleiotropic effects, independent of BP lowering, contribute to these outcomes will be the focus of research in the coming years. Well-designed, comparative-effectiveness studies are needed to clinically buy cozaar differentiate this class of agents. The future will be marked by multifunctional ARBs that will pharmacologically do more than antagonize the angiotensin type I (AT(1)) receptor.

Using the cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI) as an indicator, we assessed improvement of arterial stiffness in 95 outpatients with hypertension complicated by type 2 diabetes mellitus who were treated orally for >or= 12 months with telmisartan 40 mg/day, losartan 50 mg/day or candesartan 8 mg/day. At 1 year, in buy cozaar the telmisartan and losartan groups CAVI did not change whereas in the candesartan group CAVI showed a statistically significant decrease of 2.70%. Although telmisartan is believed to enhance the activity of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR-gamma) in vitro, it did not ameliorate arterial stiffness in our patients. Candesartan, however, improved arterial stiffness independently of blood pressure lowering and without PPAR-gamma agonist action, possibly by direct action resulting from its potent affinity and binding capacity for the angiotensin II type 1 receptor. We conclude that candesartan is a potentially useful therapy against arterial stiffness in hypertensive patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Angiotensin II (ANG) has been suggested to be the neurotransmitter utilised by subfornical organ (SFO) efferents projecting to the paraventricular nucleus (PVN). The PVN has been shown to be involved in mediating the cardiovascular response elicited by electrical stimulation of SFO. The possible role of ANG as a neurotransmitter in these pathways has been examined in the present study. The cardiovascular effects of ANG microinjection into the PVN were examined in urethane anaesthetized, male Sprague-Dawley rats. Microinjection of 20 ng or 50 ng ANG into PVN resulted in mean increases in blood pressure of 12.8 +/- 0.6 mmHg (P < 0.0005), and 16.2 +/- 1.4 mmHg (P < 0.0001) respectively, without effect on heart rate. These responses were significantly attenuated following systemic administration of losartan, an ANG type 1 receptor (AT1) antagonist (Control, +12.8 +/- 0.6 mmHg; post-losartan, +5.6 +/- 1.7 mmHg), but were unaffected by the AT2 receptor antagonist, PD123319 (Control, +10.8 +/- 1.6 mmHg; post-PD123319, +11.6 +/- 2.4 mmHg). Initial and later components of the biphasic pressor response elicited by electrical stimulation of SFO (200 microA, 10 Hz, 1 ms pulse width, 10 s) were also significantly attenuated by losartan, but unaffected by PD123319. The short latency increase in mean arterial pressure was 16.6 +/- 2.3 mmHg in comparison to a post-losartan increase of 9.3 +/- 1.6 mmHg (P < 0.001). Similarly, the secondary response consisted of a control increase of 9.6 +/- 1.3 mmHg and a post-losartan increase of 3. buy cozaar 4 +/- 0.9 mmHg (P < 0.001).(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

This study was designed to characterize the distribution of angiotensin II (AII) binding sites in the hamster brain. Brain sections were incubated with [125I][sar1,ile8]-angiotensin II in the absence and presence of angiotensin II receptor subtype selective compounds, losartan (AT1 subtype) and PD123177 (AT2 subtype). Binding was quantified by densitometric analysis of autoradiograms and localized by comparison with adjacent thionein stained sections. The distribution of AII binding sites was similar to that found in the rat, with some exceptions. [125I][sar1,ile8]-angiotensin II binding was not evident in the subthalamic nucleus and thalamic regions, inferior olive, Claritin Dosage Tablet suprachiasmatic nucleus, and piriform cortex of the hamster, regions of prominent binding in the rat brain. However, intense binding was observed in the interpeduncular nucleus and the medial habenula of the hamster, nuclei void of binding in the rat brain. Competition with receptor subtype selective compounds revealed a similar AII receptor subtype profile in brain regions where binding is evident in both species. One notable exception is the medial geniculate nucleus, predominately AT1 binding sites in the hamster but AT2 in the rat. Generally, the AII binding site distribution in the hamster brain parallels that of the other species studied, particularly in brain regions associated with cardiovascular and dipsogenic functions. Functional correlates for AII binding sites have not been elucidated in the majority of brain regions and species mismatches might provide clues in this regard.

Chronic intermittent hypoxia (CIH) increases mean arterial pressure (MAP) and FosB/ΔFosB staining in central autonomic nuclei. To test the role of the brain renin-angiotensin system (RAS) in CIH hypertension, rats were implanted with intracerebroventricular (icv) cannulae delivering losartan (1 μg/h) or vehicle (VEH) via miniosmotic pumps and telemetry devices for arterial pressure recording. A third group was given the same dose of losartan subcutaneously (sc). Two groups of losartan-treated rats served as normoxic controls. Rats were exposed to CIH or normoxia for 7 days and then euthanized for immunohistochemistry. Intracerebroventricular losartan attenuated CIH-induced increases in arterial pressure during CIH exposure (0800-1600 during the light phase) on days 1, 6, and 7 and each day during the normoxic dark phase. FosB/ΔFosB staining in the organum vasculosum of the lamina terminalis (OVLT), median preoptic nucleus (MnPO), paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus (PVN), the rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM), and the nucleus of the solitary tract (NTS) was decreased in icv losartan-treated rats. Subcutaneous losartan also reduced CIH hypertension during the last 2 days of CIH and produced bradycardia prior to the effect on blood pressure. Following sc losartan, FosB/ΔFosB staining was reduced only in the OVLT, MnPO, PVN, and NTS. These data indicate that the central and peripheral RAS contribute to CIH-induced hypertension and transcriptional activation of autonomic nuclei and that the contribution of the central RAS is greater during the normoxic dark phase of CIH hypertension.
