Multiple hemodynamic and electrophysiologic effects of AII may contribute to cardiac electrical instability. In the recent Losartan Heart Failure Study, Evaluation of Losartan in the Elderly (ELITE), a 722-patient trial primarily designed to assess effects on renal function, an unexpected survival benefit was observed with losartan compared with captopril, with the lower mortality using losartan primarily confined to a reduction in sudden cardiac death.

Vascular expression of the B1 kinin receptor is markedly upregulated with left ventricular dysfunction and angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibition, but its function remains unclear. Inhibitors of ACE potentiate bradykinin-mediated B2 receptor-dependent vasodilatation and tissue plasminogen activator (tissue-type plasminogen activator [t-PA]) release. We investigated the contribution of the B1 receptor to the maintenance of vascular tone and t-PA release in patients with heart failure.

The natriuretic and diuretic effect induced by carbachol (CBC) were partially inhibited by pretreatment of losartan, a specific blocker of angiotensin AT1 receptor (P < 0.05). Immunohistochemistry showed that both TH-IR density and number of TH-IR positive neurons were markedly increased in PaPo, Arc, Pe and AHP of hypothalamus at 40 min after carbachol administration, as compared with NS group (P < 0.05). However, in losartan pretreated group, the number and the density of TH-IR were significantly decreased in such nuclei mentioned above except PaPo.

It has been established that the baroreflex is markedly decreased in chronic heart failure (CHF). Our recent study has indicated that activation of the cardiac sympathetic afferent reflex (CSAR) inhibits the baroreflex in normal rats, and in the rats with CHF the CSAR is significantly enhanced, which is related to augmented central angiotensin II (Ang II) mechanism. Therefore, the hypothesis is that the augmented CSAR in the CHF state tonically inhibits the baroreflex via central AT1 receptor. To test the hypothesis, the rats with myocardial infarction-induced CHF or sham surgery were anesthetized with alpha-chloralose and urethane, vagotomized, and recordings were made of the mean arterial pressure (MAP) and renal sympathetic nerve activity (RSNA). We found: (1) left ventricular epicardial application of capsaicin or electrical stimulation of the central end of the left cardiac sympathetic nerve blunted the baroreflex in both sham and CHF rats; (2) left ventricular epicardial application of lidocaine had no significant effects on the baroreflex in sham rats but improved the baroreflex in CHF rats (maximum slope, 1.7+/-0.3 to 2.9+/-0.2%/mm Hg; P<0.01); and (3) intracerebral ventricular injection of losartan had no significant effect on baroreflex in sham rats but improved the baroreflex in CHF rats (maximum slope 1.9+/-0.2 to 3.1+/-0.2%/mm Hg; P<0.01). These results suggest that tonic cardiac sympathetic afferent input plays an important role in the blunted baroreflex associated with CHF, which is mediated by central AT1 receptors.

The mechanism of action, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, clinical efficacy, and adverse effects of candesartan cilexetil are reviewed. Candesartan is an angiotensin II-receptor blocker (ARB). It is administered as a pro-drug that undergoes activation during gastrointestinal absorption. The agent is excreted mostly unchanged and has a terminal half-life of about nine hours (slightly longer in the elderly). Candesartan differs from other agents in its class in that it is tightly bound to angiotensin II type 1 receptors, allowing prolonged activity. In clinical trials, candesartan cilexetil has produced a dose-dependent effect when given in dosages of 2-32 mg/day. Observed trough-to-peak blood pressure ratios support a once-daily dosage regimen. The antihypertensive effect of candesartan cilexetil 4-16 mg/day was as great as that of enalapril 10-20 mg/day and amlodipine 5 mg/day and larger than that of losartan potassium 50 mg/day. Adding candesartan cilexetil to hydrochlorothiazide 12.5-25 mg/day and amlodipine 5 mg/day led to enhanced blood-pressure reductions and was well tolerated. It appears that candesartan can decrease renal perfusion without adversely affecting renal blood flow and may mediate a decrease in albuminuria in hypertensive patients with type 2 diabetes. No clinically important drug interactions have been reported. Adverse effects include headache, dizziness, nausea, diarrhea, and transient elevations in liver transaminases. The frequency of cough is similar to that seen with placebo. Candesartan cilexetil is an effective antihypertensive agent that can be used alone or in combination with other antihypertensive drugs. It is generally well tolerated and may be an option for patients who cannot tolerate angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors because of cough.

Chronic heart failure is often associated with sympathoexcitation and blunted arterial baroreflex function. These phenomena have been causally linked to elevated central ANG II mechanisms. Recent studies have shown that NAD(P)H oxidase-derived reactive oxygen species (ROS) are important mediators of ANG II signaling and therefore might play an essential role in these interactions. The aims of this study were to determine whether central subchronic infusion of ANG II in normal animals has effects on O2- production and expression of NAD(P)H oxidase subunits as well as ANG II type 1 (AT1) receptors in the rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM). Twenty-four male New Zealand White rabbits were divided into four groups and separately received a subchronic intracerebroventricular infusion of saline alone, ANG II alone, ANG II with losartan, and losartan alone for 1 wk. On day 7 of intracerebroventricular infusion, mean arterial pressure (MAP), heart rate (HR), and renal sympathetic nerve activity (RSNA) values were recorded, and arterial baroreflex sensitivity was evaluated while animals were in the conscious state. We found that ANG II significantly increased baseline RSNA (161.9%; P < 0.05), mRNA and protein expression of AT1 receptors (mRNA, 66.7%; P < 0.05; protein, 85.1%; P < 0.05), NAD(P)H oxidase subunits (mRNA, 120.0-200.0%; P < 0.05; protein, 90.9-197.0%; P < 0.05), and O2- production (83.2%; P < 0.05) in the RVLM. In addition, impaired baroreflex control of HR (Gain(max) reduced by 48.2%; P < 0.05) and RSNA (Gain(max) reduced by 53.6%; P < 0.05) by ANG II was completely abolished by losartan. Losartan significantly decreased baseline RSNA (-49.5%; P < 0.05) and increased baroreflex control of HR (Gain(max) increased by 64.8%; P < 0.05) and RSNA (Gain(max) increased by 67.9%; P < 0.05), but had no significant effects on mRNA and protein expression of AT1 receptor and NAD(P)H oxidase subunits and O2- production in the RVLM. These data suggest that in normal rabbits, NAD(P)H oxidase-derived ROS play an important role in the modulation of sympathetic activity and arterial baroreflex function by subchronic central treatment of exogenous ANG II via AT1 receptors.

Combined therapy with an angiotensin-II type I receptor (AT1) antagonist and an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor results in more complete suppression of the renin-angiotensin system. Accordingly, the blood-pressure response and safety of combining AT1-receptor blockade with losartan for ACE inhibition were evaluated in patients with congestive heart failure who were already treated with maximally recommended or tolerated doses of an ACE inhibitor. Forty-three patients with symptomatic congestive heart failure were evaluated biweekly for 1 month before addition of losartan and weekly during administration of losartan at a daily dose of 25 mg for the first week and 50 mg for the second week. Systolic blood pressure, which remained unchanged before addition of losartan, decreased from 122 +/- 18 mm Hg to 112 +/- 17 and 107 +/- 17 mm Hg (p < 0.001) after 1 week of 25 mg and 1 week of 50 mg losartan, respectively. Diastolic blood pressure also significantly decreased. The decreases in blood pressure were well tolerated by all patients, even by those in whom symptomatic hypotension developed during uptitration of ACE inhibition. Serum potassium and sodium and parameters of renal function remained unchanged. Combining AT1-receptor blockade with losartan to maximally recommended or tolerated ACE inhibition appears safe and leads to further vasodilatation in symptomatic patients with congestive heart failure.

Flow-mediated dilation (FMD) and nitroglycerin-mediated dilation (NMD) in the brachial artery are well-known indices for evaluating endothelial function (ECF). The blood pressure-lowering effects of the combination of losartan (ARB) and low-dose hydrochlorothiazide (H: ARB-H; ARB, 50 mg and H, 12.5 mg) are useful. The aim of the present study was to examine whether the combination of losartan and low-dose hydrochlorothiazide could improve ECF.

Epidemiological studies have demonstrated that women with a history of preeclampsia have a two-fold increased risk of developing cardiovascular diseases in later life. It is not known whether or not this risk is associated with angiotensin II receptor type 1 autoantibody (AT1-AA), an agonist acting via activation of AT1 receptor (AT1R), which is believed to be involved in the pathogenesis of preeclampsia. The objective of the present study was to confirm the hypothesis that AT1-AA exposure during pregnancy may change the maternal cardiac structure and increase the susceptibility of the postpartum heart to ischemia/reperfusion injury (IRI). In the present study, we first established a preeclampsia rat model by intravenous injection of AT1-AA extracted from the plasma of rats immunized with AT1R, observed the susceptibility of the postpartum maternal heart to IRI at 16 weeks postpartum using the Langendorff preparation, and examined the cardiac structure using light and transmission electron microscopy. The modeled animals presented with symptoms very similar to the clinical symptoms of human preeclampsia during pregnancy, including hypertension and proteinuria. The left ventricular weight (LVW) and left ventricular mass index (LVMI) in AT1-AA treatment group were significantly increased as compared with those of the control group (p < 0.01), although there was no significant difference in final weight between the two groups. AT1-AA acting on AT1R not only induced myocardial cell hypertrophy, mitochondrial swelling, cristae disorganization and collagen accumulation in the interstitium but affected the left ventricular (LV) function and delayed recovery from IRI. In contrast, co-treatment with AT1-AA + losartan completely blocked AT1-AA-induced changes in cardiac structure and function. These data indicate that the presence of AT1-AA during pregnancy was strongly associated with the markers of LV geometry changes and remodeling, and increased the cardiac susceptibility to IRI in later life of postpartum maternal rats.

Previously, we have demonstrated that pressure-ejected application of angiotensin II onto some neurons in the anterior hypothalamic area (AHA) of rats increases their firing rate. In contrast, pressure application of the angiotensin AT1 receptor antagonist losartan onto AHA neurons blocked the basal firing of the neurons. To investigate possible participation of these AHA neurons in the brain angiotensin system, we examined whether intracerebroventricular injection of angiotensin II results in an activation of angiotensin II-sensitive neurons in the AHA of rats. Intracerebroventricular injection of angiotensin II increased the firing rate of AHA angiotensin II-sensitive neurons. The angiotensin II-induced increase of unit firing in AHA neurons was abolished by pressure application of losartan onto the same neurons. In addition, the angiotensin II-induced increase of firing in AHA neurons was abolished by pressure application of N-(6-aminohexyl)-5-chloro-1-naphthalenesulfonamide hydrochloride (W7), a calmodulin inhibitor, onto the same neurons. Pressure application of W7 onto AHA neurons affected neither the basal firing rate nor the increase in unit firing induced by pressure application of angiotensin II onto the same neurons. Intracerebroventricular injection of the cholinergic agonist carbachol did not affect the firing rate of angiotensin II-sensitive neurons in the AHA. These findings suggest that intracerebroventricular injection of angiotensin II activates AHA angiotensin II-sensitive neurons via angiotensinergic inputs to the neurons.

Rats were made hypertensive via continuous infusion of either Ang II or NE for up to seven days. Renal cell apoptosis and proliferation were analyzed by the terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-mediated dUTP-biotin nick end labeling (TUNEL) technique and staining with antibody against proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), respectively. In some experiments, an inducer or inhibitor of heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) was administered to investigate the possible role of HO-1 in renal cell homeostasis.

Atherosclerosis was induced in New Zealand white rabbits by high-cholesterol diet for 3 months. An Angiotensin II (Ang II) receptor blocker (losartan, 25 mg/kg/d) was given for 3 months. ACE2 activity was measured by fluorescence assay and the extent of atherosclerosis was evaluated by H&E and Oil Red O staining. In addition, the effect of losartan on ACE2 activity in smooth muscle cells (SMCs) in vitro was also evaluated.

Fourteen healthy male participants were evaluated, none of whom were genetically defined as poor CYP2C9, 2C19, and CYP2D6 metabolizers based on genotyping. Before and after RG administration, the geometric least-square mean metabolic ratio (90% CI) was 0.870 (0.805-0.940) for caffeine to paraxanthine (CYP1A2), 0.871 (0.800-0.947) for losartan (CYP2C9) to EXP3174, 1.027 (0.938-1.123) for omeprazole (CYP2C19) to 5-hydroxyomeprazole, 1.373 (0.864-2.180) for dextromethorphan to dextrorphan (CYP2D6), and 0.824 (0.658-1.032) for midazolam (CYP3A4) to 1-hydroxymidazolam. The geometric mean ratio of the area under the curve of the last sampling time (AUClast) for fexofenadine (P-gp) was 0.963 (0.845-1.098). Administration of concentrated RG for 2 wk weakly inhibited CYP2C9 and CYP3A4 and weakly induced CYP2D6. However, no clinically significant drug interactions were observed between RG and CYP and P-gp probe substrates.

Losartan in the form of Lozap or Lozap is a safe and effective treatment of patients with hypertensive disease. It is effective and safe beginning with the dose of 50 mg and its combination with a diuretic represents a good and safe therapy in patients with insufficient BP response to a 50 mg dose of losartan alone. In case of poor blood pressure response the dose has to be titrated to 100 mg.

Regional perfusion is reduced and the renin-angiotensin system is activated in rats with aortocaval fistula. The effects of captopril (angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor), losartan (AT1 receptor antagonist), and PD 123319 (AT2 receptor antagonist) on regional blood flow and vascular conductance were assessed in rats with aortocaval fistula and sham-operated rats. Control of blood flow and vascular conductance by angiotensin II was evaluated by serial bolus injections of captopril, losartan, and PD 123319 in anaesthetized rats. In rats with fistula, PD 123319 significantly decreased, while captopril and losartan increased, mesenteric blood flow. The decrease in mesenteric blood flow by PD 123319 was significantly greater in rats with fistula compared to sham. Captopril and PD 123319 significantly decreased renal blood flow compared to losartan which increased it. In sham rats, captopril and losartan significantly increased, while PD 123319 decreased, mesenteric and renal conductance. In rats with fistula, captopril and losartan significantly increased, while PD 123319 decreased, mesenteric conductance. The significant increase produced by losartan on mesenteric conductance was greater in rats with fistula compared to sham. PD 123319 produced a significantly greater decrease in renal conductance of aortocaval fistula compared to sham rats. Captopril, losartan and PD 123319 did not significantly affect perfusion in hindquarter in rats with fistula or sham. The renin-angiotensin system is more active in the control of regional haemodynamics in rats with aortocaval fistula, and acts as mechanism of maintaining normal arterial blood pressure in these animals. In rats with fistula, AT1 receptors predominate in regulating regional haemodynamics. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Angiotensin II (10(-8)-10(-6) M) exerted a dose-dependent inhibition of collagenolytic and gelatinolytic activities, associated with reduction of protein degradation rate. In addition angiotensin II stimulated protein synthesis in the cells. These combined effects on protein turnover resulted in an increase in both cell size and cell protein content (31.7% after 48 h). However, the rise of cell protein content was only partly (48.0%) prevented by the protein synthesis inhibitor cycloheximide (10(-5)M), which supports the role of decreased protein degradation in the angiotensin-II-induced cell hypertrophy. The angiotensin-II-induced effects on proteolytic activities as well as on cell protein content could be abolished by coincubation with the angiotensin II type I-receptor antagonist DuP 753 (10(-6)M). The calcium-channel blocker verapamil (10(-6)M) ameliorated the impairment of collagenolytic activity. On the contrary the calcium ionophore A23187 (10(-6)M) mimicked the action of angiotensin II on this enzyme activity (control 34.5 +/- 1.9; angiotensin II 24.0 +/- 2.0; A23187 23.0 +/- 2.2 and angiotensin II+verapamil, 33.8 +/- 2.6 pmol/min/micrograms DNA). The role of cytosolic [Ca2+] in the actions of angiotensin II could be finally shown by a dose-dependent rise which was partly blunted by verapamil.

Between Dec 1, 2011, and May 1, 2013, 318 patients were screened. 133 patients (mean age 52 years [SD 13], 35% women) consented and were randomly assigned to placebo (n=69) or losartan (n=64). 124 (93%) patients completed the study and were included in the modified intention-to-treat analysis for the primary endpoint. After 12 months we noted no significant difference in the change in left ventricular mass between the placebo group and the losartan group (mean difference 1 g/m(2), 95% CI -3 to 6; p=0·60). A decrease in systolic blood pressure in the losartan group (from mean 127 mm Hg [SD 12] to 121 mm Hg [14]; p=0·0001) confirmed drug compliance; blood pressure did not decrease in the placebo group. Two (2%) patients, both in the placebo group, died from sudden cardiac death during follow-up. In the losartan group, one (1%) patient had angioedema, one (1%) had deterioration of renal function, and one (1%) had hyperkalaemia. Treatment was well tolerated by patients with left ventricular outflow obstruction at baseline.

Scotland has introduced a number of initiatives to enhance the prescribing of low-cost generic drugs versus originators and patent products in a class where these are seen as similar. The objective of this review is to appraise the influence of the various measures on subsequent utilization patterns and expenditure in high-volume classes to provide guidance. This review is principally a narrative review of published studies. The authors' found supply-side measures resulted in generic prices as low as 3% of pre-patent loss prices. Multiple demand-side measures resulted in high international non-proprietary name prescribing, and a considerable increase in prescribing efficiency for the proton pump inhibitors, statins, renin-angiotensin inhibitor drugs and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. There were no specific activities encouraging the prescription of losartan versus other angiotensin receptor blockers or risperidone versus other atypical antipsychotic drugs following generics and no change in their utilization patterns post generics. The authors can conclude multiple measures are needed to change physician prescribing habits. Authorities cannot rely on any 'spillover' effects to affect future prescribing, even in closely related classes.

Intracerebroventricular injections of [Arg8]vasopressin (500 ng/rat) or endothelin-1 (70 ng/rat) into the right lateral ventricle induced rotation along the long axis of the body (barrel rotation) in rats. Losartan (10-200 microg/rat), an angiotensin AT1 receptor antagonist, also evoked barrel rotation, which was not inhibited by vasopressin and endothelin receptor antagonists. However, barrel rotation was not observed after injections of high doses of another angiotensin II receptor antagonist, [Sar1,Ile8]angiotensin II (100 microg/rat), or after angiotensin II (10 microg/rat). The results indicate that losartan does evoke barrel rotation which may be not mediated via vasopressin and endothelin receptors.

A single or repeated exposure to psychostimulants induces long-lasting neuroadaptative changes. Different neurotransmitter systems are involved in these responses including the neuropeptide angiotensin II. Our study tested the hypothesis that the neuroadaptative changes induced by amphetamine produce alterations in brain RAS components that are involved in the expression of the locomotor sensitization to the psychostimulant drug. Wistar male rats, pretreated with amphetamine were used 7 or 21 days later to study AT1 receptors by immunohistochemistry and western blot and also angiotensinogen mRNA and protein in caudate putamen and nucleus accumbens. A second group of animals was used to explore the possible role of Ang II AT1 receptors in the expression of behavioral sensitization. In these animals treated in the same way, bearing intra-cerebral cannula, the locomotor activity was tested 21 days later, after buy cozaar online an amphetamine challenge injection and the animals received an AT1 blocker, losartan, or saline 5min before the amphetamine challenge. An increase of AT1 receptor density induced by amphetamine was found in both studied areas and a decrease in angiotensinogen mRNA and protein only in CPu at 21 days after treatment; meanwhile, no changes were established in NAcc. Finally, the increased locomotor activity induced by amphetamine challenge was blunted by losartan administration in CPu. No differences were detected in the behavioral sensitization when the AT1 blocker was injected in NAcc. Our results support the hypothesis of a key role of brain RAS in the neuroadaptative changes induced by amphetamine.

Blood pressure exhibits a robust circadian rhythm in health. In hypertension, sleep apnea, and even shift work, this balanced rhythm is perturbed via elevations in night-time blood pressure, inflicting silent damage to the vasculature and body organs. Herein, we examined the influence of circadian dysfunction during experimental hypertension in mice. Using radiotelemetry to measure ambulatory blood pressure and activity, the effects of angiotensin II administration were studied in wild-type (WT) and period isoform knockout (KO) mice (Per2-KO, Per2, 3-KO, and Per1, 2, 3-KO/Per triple KO [TKO] mice). On a normal diet, administration of angiotensin II caused nondipping blood pressure and exacerbated vascular hypertrophy in the Period isoform KO mice relative to WT mice. To study the endogenous effects of angiotensin II stimulation, we then administered a low-salt diet to the mice, which does stimulate endogenous angiotensin II in addition to lowering blood pressure. A low-salt diet decreased blood pressure in wild-type mice buy cozaar online . In contrast, Period isoform KO mice lost their circadian rhythm in blood pressure on a low-salt diet, because of an increase in resting blood pressure, which was restorable to rhythmicity by the angiotensin receptor blocker losartan. Chronic administration of low salt caused vascular hypertrophy in Period isoform KO mice, which also exhibited increased renin levels and altered angiotensin 1 receptor expression. These data suggest that circadian clock genes may act to inhibit or control renin/angiotensin signaling. Moreover, circadian disorders such as sleep apnea and shift work may alter the homeostatic responses to sodium restriction to potentially influence nocturnal hypertension.

Isolated systolic hypertension (ISH) has proved to be a powerful predisposing factor for cardiovascular diseases in the elderly. Recent placebo-controlled interventional trials such as the Systolic Hypertension in the Elderly Program, the Systolic Hypertension in Europe, and the Systolic Hypertension in China showed that the lowering of systolic blood pressure using a diuretic- or a calcium antagonist-based treatment is associated with a decrease in cardiovascular events. Antihypertensive therapy was found especially effective in preventing stroke buy cozaar online in the elderly with ISH. A slowing in the progression of dementia was observed in patients randomized to a calcium antagonist-based treatment. Patients at high cardiovascular risk such as those with diabetes benefited the most from treatment. In another trial performed in patients with left ventricular hypertrophy (Losartan Intervention For Endpoint Reduction), a subset of patients had ISH. In those patients, an angiotensin II antagonist-based treatment was superior to a b-blocker-based treatment in preventing cardiovascular complications. The experience accumulated in patients with ISH showed that combination therapy is often required to control blood pressure. Overall, the evidence available today indicates that pharmacologic treatment of ISH markedly improves the outcome of elderly patients.

H2O2 (1-100 micromol/l) induced higher contractile responses in mesenteric resistance arteries from hypertensive than normotensive rats. In SHRs, losartan and tempol treatments induced the following effects: normalized the increased H2O2 contractile responses observed; modified neither the inhibitory effects of the cyclooxygenase inhibitor, indomethacin [1-(4-chlorobenzoyl)-5-methoxy-2-methyl-1-H-indole-3-acetic acid] (1 micromol/l), and the thromboxane A2/prostaglandin H2 receptor antagonist, SQ 29 548 buy cozaar online (1 micromol/l), on H2O2 contraction, nor the increase in thromboxane A2 production in response to H2O2; abolished the increased vascular O2(*-) production; increased both the potentiatory effect of the nitric oxide inhibitor, N(G)-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (100 micromol/l), on H2O2 responses and the acetylcholine-induced relaxation. Moreover, losartan treatment abolished the effect of the O2(*-) scavenger, tiron (1 mmol/l), on H2O2 responses and increased plasma nitrite levels.

Pressure-induced tone (myogenic, MT) and flow (shear stress)-induced dilation (FD) are potent modulators of resistance buy cozaar online artery tone. We tested the hypothesis that locally produced angiotensin II interacts with MT and FD. Rat mesenteric resistance arteries were perfused in situ. Arterial diameter was measured by intravital microscopy after a bifurcation on 2 distal arterial branches equivalent in size (150 microm, n=7 per group). One was ligated distally and thus submitted to pressure only (MT, no FD). The second branch was submitted to flow and pressure (MT and FD). The difference in diameter between the 2 vessels was considered to be FD. Flow-diameter-pressure relationship was established in the absence and then in the presence of 1 of the following agents. In the nonligated segment (MT+FD), angiotensin II type 1 (AT(1)) receptor blockade (losartan) had no significant effect, whereas angiotensin II type 2 (AT(2)) receptor blockade (PD123319) or saralasin (AT(1)+AT(2) blocker) decreased the diameter significantly, by 9+/-1 and 10+/-0.8 microm, respectively. Angiotensin II in the presence of losartan increased the diameter by 18+/-0.6 microm (inhibited by PD123319). PD123319 or saralasin had no effect after NO synthesis blockade or after endothelial disruption. In the arterial segment ligated distally (MT only), AT(1) or AT(2) receptor blockade had no significant effect. AT(2)-dependent dilation represented 20% to 39% of FD (shear stress from 22 to 37 dyn/cm(2)), and AT(2)-receptor mRNA was found in mesenteric resistance arteries. Thus, resistance arterial tone was modulated in situ by locally produced angiotensin II, which might participate in flow-induced dilation through endothelial AT(2) receptor activation of NO release.

The aim of this study was to compare the potential antithrombotic action of captopril (angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor) and losartan (a selective AT1 receptor antagonist) after their chronic administration in a model of venous thrombosis in rats. Captopril significantly reduced the incidence of venous thrombosis (67% vs 14%; p < 0.05) and both drugs markedly reduced the weight of thrombus. At the same time the platelet aggregation was reduced only in rats treated with losartan (100 +/- 7% vs 52 +/- 11%; p < 0.001). The mean blood pressure dropped only after losartan administration. We observed no changes in "transection" bleeding time buy cozaar online after both drugs administration. In conclusion, captopril and losartan exerted an antithrombotic effect in venous thrombosis model in rats. The precise mechanism of this action should be established.

1. We recently demonstrated that intracellular application of Angiotensin II (Angiotensin II(intr)) induces rat aorta contraction independent of plasma membrane Angiotensin II receptors. In this study we investigated the effects of Angiotensin II(intr) on cell growth in A7r5 smooth muscle cells. 2. DNA-synthesis was increased dose-dependently by liposomes filled with Angiotensin II as measured by [(3)H]-thymidine incorporation at high (EC(50)=27+/-6 pM) and low (EC(50)=14+/-5 nM) affinity binding sites with increases in E(max) of 58+/-4 and 37+/-4% above quiescent cells, respectively. Cell growth was corroborated by an increase in cell number. 3. Extracellular Angiotensin II (10 pM - 10 microM) did not modify [(3)H]-thymidine incorporation. 4. Growth effects of Angiotensin II(intr) mediated via high affinity sites were inhibited by liposomes filled with 1 microM of the non-peptidergic antagonists losartan (AT(1)-receptor) or PD123319 (AT(2)-receptor) or with the peptidergic agonist CGP42112A (AT(2)-receptor). E(max) values were decreased to 30+/-3, 29+/-4 and 4+/-2%, respectively, without changes in EC(50). The Angiotensin II(intr) effect via low affinity sites was only antagonized by CGP42112A (E(max)=11+/-3%), while losartan and PD123319 increased E(max) to 69+/-4%. Intracellular applications were ineffective in the absence of Angiotensin II(intr). 5. Neither intracellular nor extracellular Angiotensin I (1 microM) were effective. 6. The Angiotensin II(intr) induced growth response was blocked by selective inhibition of phosphatidyl inositol 3-kinase (PI-3K) by wortmannin (1 microM) and of the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK/ERK) pathway by PD98059 (1 microM) to 61+/-14 and 4+/-8% of control, respectively. 7. These data demonstrate that Angiotensin II(intr) induces cell growth through atypical AT-receptors via a PI-3K and MAPK/ERK -sensitive buy cozaar online pathway.

Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE inhibitors) have been shown to be effective in improving symptoms and survival in patients with systolic left ventricular dysfunction. Despite their proven benefits the use of ACE inhibitors is still limited in many parts of the western world. In part, the underutilization of ACE inhibitors is due to the occurrence of side effects such as cough, renal dysfunction and first dose hypotension. These side effects are in part due to ACE inhibitor-induced bradykinin formation. Blockade of the effects of angiotensin II can however also be achieved with buy cozaar online an angiotensin II type I receptor blocking agent such as losartan. To determine the relative safety and effectiveness of ACE inhibitors compared to an angiotensin II type I receptor blocking agent the evaluation of losartan and the elderly trial (Elite) is comparing the ACE inhibitor captopril to the angiotensin II type I receptor blocking agent losartan in elderly patients. When used ACE inhibitors are often given in doses lower than those shown to be effective in reducing mortality in the major randomized trials. Several trials are currently under way comparing low to high doses of ACE inhibitors which should provide information on the need to achieve the doses used in the major mortality studies.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

mRNA and protein expression was identified by RT-PCR and Western blot, respectively. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) were observed by a fluorescence microscope. The results showed that AngII significantly increased mRNA and protein expression of CRP in HAECs in time- and concentration-dependent ways. Anti-IL-1beta and anti-IL-6 neutralizing antibodies did not affect AngII-induced CRP expression. Losartan reduced AngII-induced CRP expression in mRNA and protein levels in HAECs. Losartan and TIFA decreased AngII-stimulated ROS generation, and antioxidant NAC completely abolished AngII-induced CRP expression in HAECs. The further study indicated that losartan, NAC, PD98059, SP600125 significantly inhibited ERK1/2 and JNK phosphorylation, and PD98059, SP600125, PDTC completely antagonized AngII-induced CRP expression in HAECs buy cozaar online .

Drug-induced hepatotoxicity is a major problem in drug development, and reactive metabolites generated by cytochrome P450s are suggested to be one of the causes. CYP2C9 is one of the major enzymes in hepatic drug metabolism. In the present study, we developed a highly sensitive cell-based screening system for CYP2C9-mediated metabolic activation using an adenovirus vector expressing CYP2C9 (AdCYP2C9). Human hepatocarcinoma HepG2 cells infected with our constructed AdCYP2C9 for 2 days at multiplicity of infection 10 showed significantly higher diclofenac 4'-hydroxylase activity than human hepatocytes. AdCYP2C9-infected cells were treated with several hepatotoxic drugs, resulting in a significant increase in cytotoxicity by treatment with losartan, benzbromarone, and tienilic acid. Metabolic activation of losartan by CYP2C9 has buy cozaar online never been reported, although the metabolic activations of benzbromarone and tienilic acid have been reported. To identify the reactive metabolites of losartan, the semicarbazide adducts of losartan were investigated by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry. Two CYP2C9-specific semicarbazide adducts of losartan (S1 and S2) were detected. S2 adduct formation suggested that a reactive metabolite was produced from the aldehyde metabolite E3179, but a possible metabolite from S1 adduct formation was not produced via E3179. In conclusion, a highly sensitive cell-based assay to evaluate CYP2C9-mediated metabolic activation was established, and we found for the first time that CYP2C9 is involved in the metabolic activation of losartan. This cell-based assay system would be useful for evaluating drug-induced cytotoxicity caused by human CYP2C9.

Experimental and clinical evidence suggests that angiotensin II (AII) participates in renal development. Renal AII content is several-fold higher in newborn rats and mice than in adult animals. AII receptors are also expressed in higher amounts in the kidneys of newborn rats. The kidneys of fetuses whose mother received a type 1 AII receptor (AT1) antagonist during gestation present several morphological alterations. Mutations in genes that encode components of the renin-angiotensin system are associated with autosomal recessive renal tubular dysgenesis. Morphological changes were detected in the kidneys of 3-week-old angiotensin-deficient mice. Mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) are important mediators that transduce extracellular stimuli to intracellular responses. The MAPK family comprises three major subgroups, namely extracellular signal-regulated protein kinase (ERK), c-jun N-terminal kinases (JNK), and p38 MAPK (p38). Important events in renal growth during nephrogenesis such as Prevacid Dose Toddler cellular proliferation and differentiation accompanied by apoptosis on a large scale can be mediated by MAPK pathways. A decrease in glomerulus number was observed in embryos cultured for 48 and 120 h with ERK or p38 inhibitors. Many effects of AII are mediated by MAPK pathways. Treatment with losartan during lactation provoked changes in renal function and structure associated with alterations in AT1 and type 2 AII (AT2) receptors and p-JNK and p-p38 expression in the kidney. Several studies have shown that AII and MAPKs play an important role in renal development. However, the relationship between the effects of AII and MAPK activation on renal development is still unclear.

Previous studies have not investigated the ef-ficacy of angiotensin II (AII) receptor antagonists against cardiac sympathetic overactivity in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) using [(123)I]metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) myocardial imaging. We studied 34 CHF patients with fractional shortening of the left ventricular (LV) diameter <==25% or LV ejection fraction <==45% in echocardiograms. An AII receptor antagonist (losartan or candesartan) was administered. Before and 6 months after the administration, MIBG myocardial imaging and echocardiography were performed, and neurohumoral factors were investigated. MIBG imaging revealed that the antagonist did not significantly change the heart-to-mediastinum ratio. However, the washout rate fell significantly (from 32.6% +/- 7.6% to 28.2% +/- 7.5%; P < 0.001). No significant changes occurred in LV diameter, fractional shortening, or LV ejection fraction. Circulating atrial (ANP) and brain natriuretic peptides (BNP), and aldosterone fell significantly. Changes in the MIBG washout rate correlated positively with changes in BNP ( r = 0.35, P < 0.05). In 19 patients also being treated with angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, the MIBG washout Flagyl 5 Mg rate also fell significantly with AII antagonists, as did BNP and aldosterone. The decreased MIBG washout and BNP in patients with CHF induced by the AII receptor antagonists suggests the efficacy of these agents in modifying cardiac sympathetic function and neurohumoral factors, even with ACE inhibition. Combination therapy with AII receptor antagonists and ACE inhibitors appears effective for CHF.

Diabetes mellitus (DM) plays a crucial role in the pathogenesis of initiation and Norvasc 5 Mg propagation of atherosclerosis. Although previous studies have suggested that interactions between cells form the framework for understanding the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, little is known about how DM impacts intercellular communication within arteries, which occurs via connexin43 (Cx43) gap junctions (GJs). This study tested the hypothesis that DM suppresses expression of Cx43 GJs, and that this suppression can be abrogated via simvastatin or losartan treatment.
