Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring enables the recording of the circadian rhythm of blood pressure under everyday circumstances, with the majority of individuals displaying diurnal variations in both systolic and diastolic blood pressures. During sleep, blood pressure in most people is between 10% and 20% lower than the mean daytime value. On arousal and the start of day-to-day activities, there is a surge in blood pressure that may last for between 4 and 6 h. Extensive evidence shows that ambulatory blood pressure is superior to office values in predicting cardiovascular risk. Cardiovascular events, such as myocardial infarction, ischaemia and stroke are more frequent in the morning hours, soon after waking, than at other times of day. Circadian variations in biochemical and physiological parameters help to explain the link between acute cardiovascular events and the early morning blood pressure surge. Recent observations in elderly Japanese individuals demonstrate that greater early morning blood pressure surges are related to an increased incidence of overt cerebrovascular disease; individuals with the greatest increases in blood pressure on awakening also had the greatest prevalence of silent ischaemic events and were more likely to experience multiple infarcts. Antihypertensive drugs that provide blood pressure control at the time of the early morning surge should provide greater protection against target-organ damage and enhance patient prognosis. Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring may be particularly helpful in assessing the circadian pharmacodynamics of such antihypertensive drugs. The technique has demonstrated, for example, a significantly greater reduction in blood pressure for the last 6 h of the 24-h dosing interval with telmisartan compared with valsartan.

Reduced insulin sensitivity is characteristic of various pathological conditions such as type 2 diabetes mellitus and hypertension. Angiotensin II, acting through its angiotensin type 1 receptor, inhibits the actions of insulin in the vasculature which may lead to deleterious effects such as vascular inflammation, remodeling, endothelial dysfunction, and insulin resistance. In contrast, insulin normally exerts vasodilatory, antiinflammatory, and prosurvival actions. To explore the impact of angiotensin II on insulin signaling, NADPH oxidase-derived reactive oxygen species formation, vascular inflammation, apoptosis, and remodeling, we used transgenic TG(mRen2)27 (Ren2) rats, which harbor the mouse renin transgene and exhibits elevated tissue angiotensin II levels. Compared with Sprague-Dawley controls, Ren2 aortas exhibited greater NADPH oxidase activity, reactive oxygen species levels, C-reactive protein, tumor necrosis factor-alpha expression, apoptosis, and wall thickness, which were significantly attenuated by in vivo treatment with angiotensin type 1 receptor blockade (valsartan) or the superoxide dismutase/catalase mimetic (tempol). There was substantially diminished Akt and endothelial NO synthase activation in Ren2 aortas in response to in vivo insulin stimulation, and this was significantly improved by in vivo treatment with valsartan or tempol. In vivo treatment with valsartan, but not tempol, significantly reduced blood pressure in Ren2 rats. Further, there was reduced insulin induced Akt activation and increased tumor necrosis factor-alpha levels in vascular smooth muscle cells from Ren2 and Sprague-Dawley rats treated with angiotensin II, abnormalities that were abrogated by angiotensin type 1 receptor blockade with valsartan or antioxidant N-acetylcysteine. Collectively, these data suggest that increased angiotensin type 1 receptor/NADPH oxidase activation/reactive oxygen species contribute to vascular insulin resistance, endothelial dysfunction, apoptosis, and inflammation.

Angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs) represent a new class of effective and well tolerated orally active antihypertensive agents. Recent clinical trials have shown the added benefits of ARBs in hypertensive patients (reduction in left ventricular hypertrophy, improvement in diastolic function, decrease in ventricular arrhythmias, reduction in microalbuminuria, and improvement in renal function), and cardioprotective effect in patients with heart failure. Several large long-term studies are in progress to assess the beneficial effects of ARBs on cardiac hypertrophy, renal function, and cardiovascular and cerebrovascular morbidity and mortality in hypertensive patients with or without diabetes mellitus, and the value of these drugs in patients with heart disease and diabetic nephropathy. The ARBs specifically block the interaction of angiotensin II at the AT1 receptor, thereby relaxing smooth muscle, increasing salt and water excretion, reducing plasma volume, and decreasing cellular hypertrophy. These agents exert their blood pressure-lowering effect mainly by reducing peripheral vascular resistance usually without a rise in heart rate. Most of the commercially available ARBs control blood pressure for 24 h after once daily dosing. Sustained efficacy of blood pressure control, without any evidence of tachyphylaxis, has been demonstrated after long-term administration (3 years) of some of the ARBs. The efficacy of ARBs is similar to that of thiazide diuretics, beta-blockers, angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors or calcium channel blockers in patients with similar degree of hypertension. Higher daily doses, dietary salt restriction, and concomitant diuretic or ACE inhibitor administration amplify the antihypertensive effect of ARBs. The ARBs have a low incidence of adverse effects (headache, upper respiratory infection, back pain, muscle cramps, fatigue and dizziness), even in the elderly patients. After the approval of losartan, five other ARBs (candesartan cilexetil, eprosartan, irbesartan, telmisartan, and valsartan) and three combinations with hydrochlorothiazide (irbesartan, losartan and valsartan) have been approved as antihypertensive agents, and some 28 compounds are in various stages of development. The ARBs are non-peptide compounds with varied structures; some (candesartan, losartan, irbesartan, and valsartan) have a common tetrazolo-biphenyl structure. Except for irbesartan, all active ARBs have a carboxylic acid group. Candesartan cilexetil is a prodrug, while losartan has a metabolite (EXP3174) which is more active than the parent drug. No other metabolites of ARBs contribute significantly to the antihypertensive effect. The variation in the molecular structure of the ARBs results in differences in the binding affinity to the receptor and pharmacokinetic profiles. The differences observed in lipid solubility, absorption/distribution, plasma protein binding, bioavailability, biotransformation, plasma half-life, and systemic elimination influence the time of onset, duration of action, and efficacy of the ARBs. On the basis of the daily mg dose, the antihypertensive potency of the ARBs follows the sequence: candesartan cilexetil > telmisartan approximately = losartan > irbesartan approximately = valsartan > eprosartan. After oral administration, the ARBs are rapidly absorbed (time for peak plasma levels = 0.5-4 h) but they have a wide range of bioavailability (from a low of 13% for eprosartan to a high of 60-80% for irbesartan); food does not influence the bioavailability, except for valsartan (a reduction of 40-50%) and eprosartan (increase). A limited dose-peak plasma levels/areas under the plasma level-time curve proportionality is observed for some of the ARBs. Most of these drugs have high plasma protein binding (95-100%); irbesartan has the lowest binding among the group (90%). The steady-state volumes of distribution vary from a low of 9 L (candesartan) to a high of 500 L (telmisartan). (ABSTRACT TRUNCATE

Heart failure (HF) is a manifestation of aberrant vascular responses and remains a public health concern with a worldwide prevalence of around 23 million and a 5-year mortality numerically equivalent to many cancers. Over the last two decades, mortality from HF reached a plateau with current pharmaceutical agents and mechanical cardiac support. In the last several years, various "novel" pharmaceutical agents have been tested in clinical trials and ultimately met with disappointment, showing only incremental benefit in the treatment of HF. Designing a HF drug with enhanced efficacy over existing agents seemed like a Sisyphean task. Yet again, pharmaceutical chemists have demonstrated their prowess in lateral thinking by developing a vasoactive agent which is a co-crystallized compound of valsartan and sacubitril in a one-to-one molar ratio; the former molecule belongs to a family of agents that are the current standard of care for HF and the latter molecule is a novel agent which inhibits neprilysin - a neutral endopeptidase found in human plasma which alters neurohumoral responses. In July of 2015, a drug which is a combination of valsartan and sacubitril was formally licensed by the United States Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of HF. This review describes the evolution of HF medications focusing on rational drug design with the first HF medication, the beta-adrenergic receptor antagonist. We then discuss the biochemical and physiological properties of sacubitril/valsartan which likely lead to its dramatic ability to ameliorate HF mortality.

Sixty-five patients were initiated into each of 3 treatments; trandolapril, valsartan or a combination of both (half-dose-trandolapril plus half-dose-valsartan). Changes in MMP-9, LV end-diastolic and end-systolic volume index (LVEDVI and LVESVI) after 12 months were assessed. Overall, MMP-9 significantly decreased, although neither LVEDVI nor LVESVI increased significantly. DeltaMMP-9 was significantly correlated with DeltaLVEDVI (r=0.36) or DeltaLVESVI (r=0.39). In comparison, across groups, it was found that MMP-9, LVEDVI and LVESVI at 12 months were significantly lower in the combination therapy group than in the trandolapril group. There were no significant differences between the valsartan group and combination therapy group, or between the valsartan group and the trandolapril group.

Neuroendocrine activation may be an important adjunctive mechanism for left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) development. Controversy exists to as to whether LVH regression occurs due to blood pressure (BP) reduction alone or if adjunctive mechanisms play a role. We planned to test the hypothesis that for a similar BP reduction, LVH regression would be greater using a drug combination selected specifically to reduce neuroendocrine activity compared with one that did not.

Blockade of the renin-angiotensin system improves morbidity and mortality of patients with cardiovascular diseases, e.g. arterial hypertension, renal failure, following myocardial infarction and in congestive heart failure. The angiotensin II type 1 (AT(1)) receptor antagonists (angiotensin receptor blockers; ARBs), i.e. losartan, eprosartan, irbesartan and valsartan were developed by computer-based molecule design. Early observations already indicate that the ARBs elicit pleiotropic effects developing anti-aggregatory, anti-inflammatory and anti-mitogenic effects independent from their actions at the AT(1) receptor. Losartan metabolism indicates a number of known active intermediates and pointed to further interactions of these derivatives with other receptors and cellular signaling systems. Here we discuss a compilation of detailed pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data of active metabolites of ARBs indicating their mode of action and suggest novel therapeutic implications. The clinical observations that ARBs elicit potencies in patients with cardiovascular diseases via the regulation of inflammatory, growth and homeostatic factors lead us to focus on specific, reactive metabolites, which hold potential for future indications and possible drug interactions in cardiovascular diseases.

In patients with AF after an MI, an anti-arrhythmic drug-based rhythm control strategy is associated with excess 45-day mortality compared with a rate control strategy, but is not associated with increased mortality outside of the immediate peri-infarct period. These results potentially identify a patient population in whom the use of anti-arrhythmic drug therapy may portend an increased risk of death.

Obesity is a major global health concern and is associated with hypertension. However, there is a lack of studies evaluating the effectiveness of valsartan/amlodipine single-pill combination in Chinese hypertensive patients with excess body weight uncontrolled by monotherapy. To evaluate this effectiveness and its association with obese categories, we performed a prespecified subanalysis and a post hoc analysis of patients from China status II study. In this subanalysis, 11,289 and 11,182 patients stratified by body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference (WC), respectively, were included. Significant mean sitting systolic and diastolic blood pressure (BP) reductions from baseline were observed at week 8 across all BMI and WC subgroups (P < 0.001). The percentages of patients achieving BP control were 65.2%, 62.8%, and 64.5% (men 64.5% and women 64.4%) in the overweight, obesity, and abdominal obesity subgroups, respectively. The positive association between BP control and obese categories could only be found in subgroups buy diovan stratified by BMI other than WC.

The aim of this study was to improve the mucoadhesive properties of graphene by conjugating thiol ligands, in order to formulate an oral delivery system for hydrophobic drugs showing long mucus residence time. Graphene oxide was obtained by oxidation of graphite and then was thiolated following two synthetic paths. On the one hand, the hydroxyl groups were conjugated with thiourea passing through the formation of a brominated intermediate. On the other hand, the carboxylic acid groups were conjugated with cysteamine via carbodiimide chemistry. The mucoadhesive properties of thiolated graphene were evaluated by rheological measurements and by residence time assay. Then, valsartan was loaded on thiolated graphene and the release profile was evaluated in simulated intestinal fluid. Following both synthetic paths it was possible to obtain thiolated graphene bearing 215-302μmol SH/g product. Both products induced after 1h incubation an increase of mucus viscosity of about 22-33-fold compared to unmodified graphite. The residence time assay buy diovan confirmed that 60% of thiolated graphene could be retained on intestinal mucosa after 4h incubation, whereas just 20% of unmodified graphite could be retained. Valsartan could be loaded with a drug loading of about 31±0.3% and a sustained release profile was observed for both formulations. According to the presented data, the thiolation of graphene could improve its mucoadhesive properties. Therefore, thiolated graphene represents a promising platform for oral delivery of hydrophobic drugs, possessing a long residence time on intestinal mucosa which allows the release of the loaded drug close to the adsorptive epithelium.

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a very common arrhythmia. Currently available tools to control arrhythmic recurrences (antiarrhythmic agents, catheter ablation) are not entirely satisfactory. Recently attention has been directed to upstream therapy, in order to alter the arrhythmia substrate; the most promising drugs seem to be those targeting the renin-angiotensin-aldsterone system. Several post-hoc analyses from large trials, in different clinical situations, confirmed the efficacy of angiotensin-converting enzyme-inhibitors and angiotensin II receptor blockers in primary prevention of AF. On the contrary prospective randomized, placebo-controlled, and double-blind studies showed negative results as for secondary prevention of AF. The GISSI-AF trial, the largest study (1442 patients) dealing with the use of angiotensin II receptor blockers in prevention of buy diovan AF recurrences, has not demonstrated any difference between patients treated with valsartan (51.4% AF recurrences in a 12-month follow-up) vs. the placebo group (52.1%, p = NS). Therefore, available data do not support the use of these drugs in secondary prevention of AF.

Angiotensin II receptor blockers represent a class of effective and well tolerated orally active antihypertensive drugs. Activation of AT(1) receptors leads to vasoconstriction, stimulation of the release of catecholamines and antidiuretic hormone and promote growth of vascular and cardiac muscle. AT(1) receptor blockers antagonise all those effects. Losartan was the first drug of this class marketed, shortly followed by valsartan, irbesartan, telmisartan, candesartan, eprosartan and others on current investigation. All these drugs have the common properties of blockading the AT(1) receptor thereby relaxing vascular smooth muscle, increase salt excretion, decrease cellular hypertrophy and induce antihypertensive effect without modifying heart rate or cardiac output. Most of buy diovan the AT(1) receptor blockers in use controlled blood pressure during the 24 h with a once-daily dose, without evidence of producing tolerance to the antihypertensive effect and being with low incidence of side effects even at long term use. Monotherapy in mild-to-moderate hypertension controls blood pressure in 40 to 50% of these patients; when a low dose of thiazide diuretic is added, 60-70% of patients are controlled. The efficacy is similar to angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, diuretics, calcium antagonists and beta-blocking agents. AT(1) receptor blockers are specially indicated in patients with hypertension who are being treated with ACE inhibitors and developed side effects such as, cough or angioedema. The final position in the antihypertensive therapy in this special population and other clinical situations, such as left ventricular hypertrophy, heart failure, diabetes mellitus and renal disease, has to be determined in large prospective clinical trials, some of which are now being conducted and seem promising.

Diabetes is associated with increased production of 12(S)-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid [12(S)-HETE]. The mechanisms involved in this process remain unclear. We hypothesized that hyperglycemia and angiotensin II (ANG II) regulate renal 12(S)-HETE production via a balance between angiotensin AT(1) and AT(2) receptors activities. Using a microdialysis technique, renal interstitial fluid (RIF) levels of ANG II and 12(S)-HETE were monitored in normal control and streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats at baseline and then weekly thereafter for 12 wk. In a second group of normal and diabetic rats, 3 wk after development of diabetes, we monitored RIF 12(S)-HETE levels in response to acute AT(1) receptor blockade with valsartan or AT(2) receptor buy diovan blockade with PD123319 individually or combined. Two weeks after induction of diabetes there was a 404% increase in ANG II (P < 0.05), a 149% increase in 12S-HETE (P < 0.05), and a 649% increase in urinary albumin excretion (P < 0.05). These levels remained elevated throughout the study. PD123319 given alone had no effect on 12(S)-HETE. Valsartan decreased 12(S)-HETE by 61.6% (P < 0.0001), a response that was abrogated when PD123319 was given with valsartan. These data demonstrate that hyperglycemia increases renal ANG II and 12(S)-HETE levels. The increase in 12(S)-HETE is mediated via AT(1) receptor. The attenuation of the effects of AT(1) receptor blockade by PD123319 suggests that AT(2) receptor contributes to the downregulation of renal 12(S)-HETE production.

Lipoprotein glomerulopathy (LPG) is a rare hereditary disease characterized by the buy diovan accumulation of much thrombi material consisting of lipoproteins at the glomerular capillary lumen. Most patients show nephrotic syndrome; nearly half progress to chronic renal failure. Intensive therapy with lipid-lowering agents reportedly engenders clinical remission with histological resolution. We report the case of a 14-year-old Japanese female patient who had been in a nephrotic condition with hematuria from 4 years old and who had been diagnosed based on pathological and molecular examination at 7 years old. We initially treated the patient with probucol, enalapril (angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor: ACEI), and dipyridamole from age 7, but achieved no improvement in her nephrotic status. Subsequently, we replaced probucol with bezafibrate at age 11 and added atorvastatin calcium hydrate and valsartan (angiotensin II receptor blocker: ARB) the following year. The next 3 years' treatment improved her nephrotic status, decreased serum apolipoprotein E, and markedly decreased intraglomerular lipoprotein thrombi. Early and intensive therapy with antilipidemic drugs combined with ACEI and ARB is inferred to be effective for LPG.

Combinations of the direct renin inhibitor aliskiren with angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) or diuretics are effective therapeutic regimens for the treatment of hypertension. A large database of safety information has become available during the past several years with aliskiren in combination trials. Data were pooled from 9 short-term (8-week) and 4 longer-term (26- to 52-week) randomized controlled trials of aliskiren in patients with hypertension. Adverse event (AE) rates were assessed for aliskiren combination therapy compared with component monotherapies. In Cytoxan Dosage short-term studies, overall AE rates were similar for patients receiving aliskiren/valsartan or aliskiren/diuretic combinations (32.2%-39.8%) and those receiving the component monotherapies (30.0%-39.6%). In longer-term studies, AE rates with aliskiren/losartan (55.5%) and aliskiren/diuretic (45.0%) combination therapy were similar to those with losartan (53.9%) and diuretic (48.9%) alone. Angioedema and hyperkalemia occurred in similar proportions of patients taking combination therapies vs monotherapy. The safety and tolerability profile of aliskiren in combination with the ARBs valsartan or losartan, or diuretic, is similar to aliskiren, ARBs, or diuretics alone.

Patients (n = 18,269) had mean age of 53 at the initiation date, and 53% of them were Cymbalta Drug Class female. The most common co-morbid conditions were dyslipidemia (52%), diabetes (24%), and hypertensive complications (17%). The time series model suggests that medical costs were increasing by approximately $10 per month (p < 0.01) before the initiation, and decreasing by approximately $6 per month (p < 0.01) after the initiation. After the 4th post-initiation month, medical costs for patients with the initiation were statistically significantly lower (p < 0.01) than forecasted medical costs for the same patients without the initiation.

Active therapy similarly reduced systolic and diastolic blood pressure (SBP, DBP) (valsartan: -22 +/- 18/-11 +/- 11 mmHg, HCTZ: -22 Priligy With Alcohol +/- 23/-14 +/- 14 mmHg, all P < 0.001). However, only valsartan, but no HCTZ reduced the augmentation index (valsartan: from 148 +/- 18 to 126 +/- 24, < 0.001; HCTZ: from 145 +/- 19 to 142 +/- 18, NS). Augmentation index reduction was greater with valsartan (-22 +/- 11) than with HCTZ (-3 +/- 11) and placebo (0 +/- 13) (P < 0.01 for pairwise comparison of valsartan versus HCTZ and placebo after Bonferroni correction). Differences remained significant after taking changes in supine BP into account (covariance, P < 0.01).

Chronic heart failure (CHF) is a leading cause of hospitalization and is associated with a poor prognosis, although in the past decade substantial progress has been made in understanding the pathophysiology and therapy of CHF with reduced left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction. Use of angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors and angiotensin-receptor antagonists either individually or in combination, certain beta-receptor blockers, and judicious use of aldosterone antagonists, has reduced hospital admission rates and mortality from CHF with reduced LV ejection fraction. More clinical trials are needed, however, particularly in patients with CHF and preserved LV ejection fraction. In patients who remain symptomatic despite medical therapy, and who have long QRS intervals (>0.12 s) and markedly reduced LV ejection fraction, the value of cardiac resynchronization therapy with a biventricular pacemaker has now been demonstrated. Yet, morbidity and mortality remain high, indicating a major need for further improvement. Novel therapies include medical management with statins, vasopressin antagonists, erythropoietin, oxypurinol and levosimendan, which improve vascular and myocardial function and reduce fluid overload, in addition to surgical approaches, which reduce LV remodeling. These routes might not, however, suffice in patients with CHF and LV dysfunction. Prevention of apoptosis and particularly regeneration of cardiac muscle would represent a shift of the current paradigm. Ceftin Drug Class Stem-cell-based therapies are rapidly evolving, and while basic science is needed to optimize these strategies, medium-sized clinical studies could help to verify the beneficial effects on LV function. In this review, we discuss current treatment methods and new strategies to improve treatment of CHF.

We identified 54,186 patients with diabetes who started taking an angiotensin-receptor blocker during the study period. After multivariable adjustment, patients who took either telmisartan (adjusted hazard ratio [HR] 0.85, 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.74-0.97) or valsartan (adjusted HR 0.86, 95% CI 0.77-0.95) had a lower risk of the composite outcome compared with patients who took irbesartan. In contrast, no significant difference in risk was seen between other angiotensin-receptor blockers and irbesartan. In secondary analyses, we found a reduced risk of admission to hospital for heart failure with telmisartan compared with irbesartan (adjusted HR 0.79, 95% CI 0.66-0.96), but no significant differences in risk were seen between angiotensin-receptor blockers in our other secondary analyses.

Sodium restriction potentiates the efficacy of the rennin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS)-blockade and improves long-term cardiovascular and renal protection, even independent of the better blood pressure control. The mechanisms underlying the potentiation of cardiorenal protection by sodium restriction are incompletely understood. RAAS-blockade with angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors increases circulating levels of the anti-inflammatory and antifibrotic peptide N-acetyl-seryl-aspartyl-lysyl-proline (AcSDKP), which is assumed to contribute to its therapeutic effects. We hypothesized that sodium restriction on top of RAAS-blockade further increases AcSDKP, as a possible explanation for the enhanced effects of RAAS-blockade during sodium restriction.
