Peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) is a disorder of unknown etiology in which symptoms of heart failure occur between the last month of pregnancy and 5 months post-partum. These findings prompted us to carry out a more detailed study aimed at correlating plasma levels of C-reactive protein TNF-α and IL-6 as prognostic value for major clinical in-hospital events and 6-month follow-up in patients with PPCM.

The most important component of the renal-body fluid feedback is renal pressure natriuresis which through sodium and water excretion stabilizes arterial pressure. The chronic effects of angiotensin II in regulating the pressure natriuresis was studied in dogs by the Guyton school. Renal perfusion was either permitted to increase or was maintained constant with a servo-controlled occluder placed on the abdominal aorta just above the kidneys. When the renal pressure was allowed to increase, sodium excretion was reduced for a day and after 4-5 days there was little net change in sodium balance and arterial pressure stabilized at about 30 mm Hg above control. In the servo-controlled renal perfusion, escape from sodium retention did not occur, arterial pressure continued to rise, and pulmonary edema developed. Angiotensin II, by its hemodynamic and tubular effects, modulates renal sodium and water excretion and has an important role in blood pressure regulation. Antibodies to renin and converting enzyme inhibitors showed a causal relationship between the stimulated renin-angiotensin system and the antihypertensive effect of these agents. Chronic effects are observed in hypertensive patients with normal or even low plasma renin activity. This suggests that local angiotensin concentrations in the vascular and renin tissues may be more important in determining sodium and water excretion. Our knowledge of the renin-angiotensin system in regulating blood pressure made the usage of converting enzyme inhibitors a logical and efficacious modality in the therapy of hypertension. In a multicenter study of 202 hypertensive patients, the efficacy and safety of ramipril and enalapril was studied.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

altace overdose symptoms

Uric acid (UA) is the final product of purine catabolism in man, and it is excreted mainly by the kidneys when renal function is not impaired. Consequently, serum (S) UA increases as a function of purine intake, and it varies inversely to uricosuria. The latter variable diminishes in response to low-sodium intakes and vice versa. Insofar as the diet is not usually controlled in studies in which the response of SUA to drugs is evaluated, most reports are to be considered cautiously. Common diuretics elevate SUA in healthy subjects, hypertensives and patients with heart failure, apparently by elevating net UA reabsorption in the nephronal proximal tubule. This drug action, which becomes noticeable shortly after the institution of treatment and remains throughout it, starts at low doses (e.g., 12.5 mg hydrochlorothiazide or 1.25 mg bendrofluazide once daily in subjects with uncomplicated hypertension) and increases in dose-dependent fashion. Beta-blockers tend to elevate SUA. The angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors captopril, enalapril and ramipril have been found to increase uricosuria mildly, likely by lowering the net reabsorption of UA in the proximal tubule. These three drugs and lisinopril can blunt the rise in SUA provoked by diuretics in hypertensives if used at sufficiently high doses relative to the dose of the diuretic. The angiotensin II antagonist losartan augments uricosuria mildly and thereby decreases SUA. The cardiovascular implications of the response of SUA to drugs remain speculative. Uric acid can scavenge various reactive oxygen species and thus reduce oxidative stress, which seems to contribute to the development and/or progress of various cardiovascular conditions, including hypertension, atherosclerosis and heart failure. Consequently, it may be theorised that the elevations in SUA induced by diuretics might contribute to the established favourable action of these agents on cardiovascular prognosis. Conversely, diuretic-induced increases in SUA are to be considered detrimental according to an old hypothesis that maintains that SUA is a cardiovascular risk factor; this construct is largely based upon the results of selected epidemiological undertakings. The cardiovascular implications of the effects of drugs on SUA, if any, should be elucidated through purposive research.

One hundred eighty eight hypertensive patients, aged 21 to 80 years-old, coming from 4 Chilean hospitals were studied. Using an open non controlled design; they were treated with placebo for two weeks and with the active drug during eight weeks, in initial doses of 2.5 mg/day that were adjusted to 5 mg/day if diastolic blood pressure did not drop below 90 mm Hg or if its reduction was less than 10 mm Hg.

The pharmacology of angiotensin-converting-enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and their role in the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) are described, and pharmacokinetic properties and common adverse events are presented. ACE inhibitors play a vital role in the RAS by regulating the potent vasoconstrictor angiotensin II. All ACE inhibitors share the same basic structure; however, they can be separated on the basis of their functional (binding) group: carboxyl, sulfhydryl, or phosphinyl. These functional groups are, in part, responsible for differences in the pharmacokinetic and safety profiles of these agents. Captopril and lisinopril are the only ACE inhibitors that are not prodrugs requiring activation through hepatic biotransformation. Differences among the ACE inhibitors in lipophilicity are described; fosinopril has the greatest lipophilicity and lisinopril the least. ACE is found in numerous tissues, and there is increasing evidence of differences among ACE inhibitors in their ability to inhibit tissue ACE. Most ACE inhibitors are eliminated mainly by the kidneys and to a lesser extent through the liver. Lisinopril is the only ACE inhibitor that does not require hepatic metabolism. In the selection of an ACE inhibitor for once-daily use to treat hypertension, differences in trough-peak ratios are clinically relevant. Fosinopril, ramipril, and trandolapril have minimum trough-peak ratios of 50% or greater. ACE inhibitors are generally well tolerated, with hypotension, cough, and hyperkalemia being the most frequently reported adverse effects for the entire class. Drug interactions across the ACE inhibitor class as well as agent-specific interactions are described. Factors to be considered in the selection of an ACE inhibitor include differences in potency, affinity for ACE, pharmacokinetics, and toxicity that are related to structural properties of the drug; whether the trough-peak ratio enables use of a once-daily dose; and potential adverse effects related to a drug's functional (binding) group.

Current national guidelines recommend aggressive lowering of blood pressure (< 130/80 mm Hg) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). In this paper, we summarize recent clinical trial data evaluating the effect of lower blood pressure goals on renal outcomes. The epidemiologic data relating blood pressure to progression of kidney disease, the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) study (in patients with > 1 g proteinuria/d), and meta-analyses of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor clinical trials all support lower blood pressure goals in CKD patients, particularly those with proteinuria. The African American Study of Kidney Disease and Hypertension (AASK) supports lower blood pressure goals in terms of reduction of proteinuria, but demonstrates no additional benefit for clinical renal outcomes. Similarly, the second Ramipril Efficacy in Nephropathy study (REIN-2) shows that in patients with proteinuric nondiabetic renal disease who are receiving ACE inhibitors, a lower than usual blood pressure goal does not improve renal outcomes. However, there are limited clinical trial data evaluating the effects of low blood pressure on the increased cardiovascular risk seen in patients with CKD. Pending further clinical studies, current recommendations to target tight blood pressure control (< 130/80 mm Hg) in patients with CKD appear reasonable.

Endothelial dysfunction is the initial pathophysiological step in a progression of vascular damage that leads to overt cardiovascular and chronic kidney disease. Angiotensin II, the primary agent of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS), has a central role in endothelial dysfunction. Therefore, RAS blockade with an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) and/or angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor provides a rational approach to reverse endothelial dysfunction, reduce microalbuminuria, and, thus, improves cardiovascular and renal prognosis. ARBs and ACE inhibitors act at different points in the RAS pathway and recent evidence suggests that there are differences regarding their effects on endothelial dysfunction. In addition to blood pressure lowering, studies have shown that ARBs reduce target-organ damage, including improvements in endothelial dysfunction, arterial stiffness, the progression of renal dysfunction in patients with type 2 diabetes, proteinuria, and left ventricular hypertrophy. The ONgoing Telmisartan Alone in combination with Ramipril Global Endpoint Trial (ONTARGET) Programme is expected to provide the ultimate evidence of whether improved endothelial function translates into reduced cardiovascular and renal events in high-risk patients, and to assess possible differential outcomes with telmisartan, the ACE inhibitor ramipril, or a combination of both (dual RAS blockade). Completion of ONTARGET is expected in 2008.

It has been suggested that angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibition is accompanied by enhanced bradykinin and prostaglandin activities, which may contribute to the renal haemodynamic actions of ACE inhibitors. Therefore we investigated renal function by clearance and micropuncture techniques in dogs maintained either on normal or low-salt diet before and after ACE inhibition with an i.v. bolus of 0.1 mg/kg ramiprilat followed by an infusion of 5 micrograms kg-1 min-1. Subgroups each comprising six dogs were also treated with either HOE-140, a bradykinin B2 receptor antagonist, or the cyclooxygenase inhibitor indomethacin. In general, renal effects of ramiprilat were more pronounced in dogs fed on low salt than in those on normal diet. In dogs on low salt, the mean arterial pressure decreased by 20% 20 min after ramiprilat application, whereas the total renal blood flow rose by 71% from 4.71 to 8.06 ml min-1 g kidney weight-1 and the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) by 28% from 0.74 to 0.95 ml min-1 g-1. Single-nephron glomerular blood flow and single-nephron GFR rose by 55% and 23% respectively. The total and the single-nephron filtration fraction decreased by 25% and 23% respectively. There were no substantial changes in glomerular and peritubular capillary and tubular pressures, but a significant increase in the ultrafiltration coefficient, Kf, by 103% from 3.55 nl/mmHg to 7.19 nl/mmHg (26.7-54.0 nl/kPa) was observed. Afferent and efferent arteriolar resistances decreased in parallel by 55% and 47%.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

The results indicate that ACE inhibitors and AT1B have a potential to enhance L-arg-induced vasodilation both in systemic and renal vascular beds. However, these hemodynamic responses were not associated with convincing changes in indicators of systemic or renal NO activity, suggesting a contribution of NO-independent vasodilator mechanisms.

We investigated the predictors of the rate of glomerular filtration rate decline (delta GFR) and progression to end-stage renal failure (ESRF) in the 352 patients with proteinuric non-diabetic chronic nephropathies [urinary protein excretion rate (UProt) > or = 1 g/24 hr, creatinine clearance 20 to 70 ml/min/1.73 m2] enrolled in the Ramipril Efficacy In Nephropathy (REIN) study. Overall the GFR declined linearly by 0.46 +/- 0.05 ml/min/1.73 m2/month (mean rate +/- SEM) over a median follow-up of 23 months (range 3 to 64 months), and progression to ESRF was 17.3%. Using multivariate analysis, higher UProt and mean arterial pressure (MAP) independently correlated with a faster delta GFR (P = 0.0001 and P = 0.0002, respectively) and progression to ESRF (P = 0.0001 and P = 0.003, respectively). Mean UProt and systolic blood pressure during follow-up were the only time-dependent covariates that significantly correlated with delta GFR (P = 0.005 and P = 0.003, respectively) and ESRF (P = 0.006 and P = 0.0001, respectively). After stratification for baseline UProt, patients in the lowest tertile (UProt < 1.9 g/24 hr) had the slowest delta GFR (0.16 +/- 0.07 ml/min/1.73 m2/month) and progression to ESRF (4.3%) as compared with patients in the middle tertile (UProt 2.0 to 3.8 g/24hr; delta GFR, 0.55 +/- 0.09 ml/min/1.73 m2/month, P = 0.0002; ESRF, 15.3%, P = 0.0001) and in the highest tertile (UProt 3.9 to 18.8 g/24 hr; delta GFR, 0.70 +/- 0.11 ml/min/1.73 m2/month, P = 0.0001; ESRF, 32.5%, P = 0.0001). Both delta GFR (P = 0.01) and progression to ESRF (P = 0.01) significantly differed even between the middle and the highest tertiles. On the contrary, stratification in tertiles of baseline MAP failed to segregate subgroups of patients into different risk levels. Patients with the highest proteinuria and blood pressure were those with the fastest progression (delta GFR, 0.91 +/- 0.23; ESRF 34.7%). Of interest, at each level of baseline MAP, a higher proteinuria was associated with a faster delta GFR and progression to ESRF. On the other hand, at each level of proteinuria, a faster delta GFR was associated with MAP only in the highest tertile (> 112 mm Hg) and the risk of ESRF was independent of the MAP. Thus, in chronic nephropathies proteinuria is the best independent predictor of both disease progression and ESRF. Arterial hypertension may contribute to the acceleration of renal injury associated with enhanced traffic of plasma proteins. Antihypertensive drugs that most effectively limit protein traffic at comparable levels of blood pressure are those that most effectively slow disease progression and delay or prevent ESRF in proteinuric chronic nephropathies.

To compare the effects of an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor on circulating and tissue renin-angiotensin system (RAS), we measured different RAS parameters during the first day of treatment (Day1) as well as after two weeks of treatment (Day14). Ramipril was given orally once daily to adult male spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR). Renin activity (RA), angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) activity and levels of angiotensin I (ang I) and angiotensin II (ang II) in the plasma, renal cortex and renal medulla were assessed at Day1 and Day14 of the treatment. In the plasma, both RA and ang I increased 10 to 15 fold one to four hours after acute as well as at Day14 of ramipril treatment and then returned to basal values within 24 hours. Plasma ang II levels were not significantly decreased at Day1 or Day14. The decrease in the ang II/ang I ratio suggested a sustained inhibition of plasma ACE at Day14. In the renal cortex and medulla, a clearly different pattern was observed: in ramipril treated rats, RA in the renal cortex and medulla did not change at Day1 but at Day14 we observed a slight and sustained increase in RA. Despite very high basal levels of RA, ang I levels in the renal cortex were comparable to those in the plasma. The ang I level increased only one-fold one hour after ramipril intake at Day1 and Day14. This suggests that angiotensinogen may have a limiting role in the synthesis of ang I in the kidney. Ang II levels were slightly higher in the renal cortex and medulla than in the plasma suggesting local synthesis of the peptide. In the kidney, ang II levels decreased one and four hours after the acute or prolonged ramipril treatment and the ang II/ang I ratio was reduced at the same time. Our results show that the responses of the plasma and kidney components of the RAS to ACE inhibition are different in the plasma and the kidney suggesting that the circulating and tissue RAS are at least in part independent.

Mutations in the NPHS2 gene encoding podocin are associated with steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome (SRNS) in childhood. Patients usually present with focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). It is unclear to what extent SRNS due to NPHS2 mutations predisposes to recurrence of proteinuria/FSGS after renal transplantation (RTx). A 4-year-old girl with infantile SRNS was started on peritoneal dialysis because of end-stage renal disease due to FSGS. Mutational screening of the patient and her parents revealed a novel single nucleotide deletion in exon 8 of the NHPS2 gene (948delT), for which the patient was homozygous and her parents confirmed heterozygous asymptomatic carriers. At the age of 4.5 years the patient received a renal graft from her mother. On day 7 after RTx, the patient developed progressive proteinuria (urine protein/creatinine ratio 2.4 g/g), which responded within 1 week to prednisone pulse therapy, an increased cyclosporin A dosage, and ramipril therapy. The patient has maintained stable graft function and no further recurrence of proteinuria has been observed. In conclusion, patients with SRNS due to NPHS2 mutations are not protected from recurrence of proteinuria after RTx. The quick response to increased immunosuppression in our patient suggests an immune-mediated pathomechanism for recurrence of proteinuria.

Blood pressure (BP) was reduced by a mean of 6 mm Hg systolic and 4 mm Hg diastolic in the ramipril group compared with the placebo group (p<0.001). There was no difference between groups in the changes in common carotid artery wall thickness (p = 0.58) or in carotid plaque (p = 0.93). Left ventricular mass index decreased by 3.8 g/m2 (4%) in the ramipril group compared with the placebo group (2p = 0.04).

A statistical experimental design was used to optimise a capillary electrophoretic separation method for eight inhibitors of the angiotensin-converting enzyme: enalapril, lisinopril, quinapril, fosinopril, perindopril, ramipril, benazepril, and cilazapril. Because a free solution capillary electrophoresis system did not achieve a complete separation of these eight compounds in one run, the usefulness of alkylsulphonates as ion-pairing agents was investigated. After preliminary investigations to determine the experimental domain and the most important factors, a three-level full-factorial design was applied to study the impact of the pH and the molarity of the ion-pairing agent on the separation. Improved separations were obtained suggesting a favourable effect of ion-pairing interactions between analytes and the additive; however, it remained impossible to separate them all in one run. A combination of two systems was still necessary for the selective identification of these structurally-related substances.

Although several large studies indicate a beneficial effect of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors after myocardial infarction, the optimal timing of therapy in terms of safety and the effects on neurohormones during myocardial infarction are less well known. In order to investigate the effect of ramipril, administered within 24 h after myocardial infarction, on hemodynamics and neurohormones and its safety, 20 patients with a myocardial infarction were studied. Nine patients had an anterior, 10 an inferior, and 1 a non-Q-wave infarction. Fourteen patients received thrombolytic therapy, whereas 6 did not. The initial dose of ramipril was 1.25 mg, but was gradually increased to 5 mg during the next 4 days. Side effects did not occur. The mean arterial pressure decreased 8 h after the first dose from 84 +/- 2 mm Hg (control) to 77 +/- 2 mm Hg (p < 0.05) and remained decreased thereafter. This was accompanied by a reduction in systemic resistance of 8% after 8 h and of 12% on day 2. Heart rate, cardiac and stroke indexes, and pulmonary artery and wedge pressures did not change. The ACE activity decreased within 1 h of ramipril administration with a maximum of 71% at 4 h after the second dose and remained at this level throughout the study. Angiotensin II decreased by 34% (day 2) and by 41% (day 5). The renin activity gradually increased from 33 +/- 7.5 to 75.4 +/- 11.5 microM/ml on day 5, whereas epinephrine was reduced from day 2 onwards, with a maximal reduction of 71% on day 5. Arginine vasopressin was significantly reduced 5 h after ramipril administration until the end of the study, with a maximum of 77% on day 3. Moreover, a late but significant decrease in norepinephrine occurred on day 5. Thus, oral ramipril results in early ACE inhibition, followed by progressive attenuation of the neuroendocrine activation and a reduction in afterload during the acute phase of myocardial infarction. It is well tolerated, also in combination with nitroglycerin and thrombolytic therapy.

After cardiac surgery, renal dysfunction requiring dialysis developed in 11 (3.8%) patients in the control group patients. There was no required dialysis in the treatment group (p < 0.05). As an indicator of renal dysfunction, the increase in creatinine and blood urea nitrogen levels and the decrease in GFR and creatinine clearance were higher in the control group (p < 0.05). The multivariate analysis indicated that therapy with ACE inhibitors was found to decrease the incidence of postoperative renal dysfunction (odds ratio, 1.07; 95% confidence interval, 0.45-2.50; p < 0.05). The other independent predictors were age, preoperative intra-aortic blood pump, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and a left ventricular ejection fraction below 0.40.

Patients were divided into 4 groups according to the proportion of in-treatment visits before the occurrence of an event (<25%->75%) in which BP was reduced to <140/90 or <130/80 mm Hg. After adjustment for demographic and clinical variables, a progressive increase in the proportion of visits in which BP was reduced to <140/90 or <130/80 mm Hg was associated with a progressive reduction in the risk of stroke, new onset of microalbuminuria or macroalbuminuria, and return to normoalbuminuria in albuminuric patients. An increased frequency of BP control to either target did not have any consistent effect on the adjusted risk of myocardial infarction and heart failure. The adjusted risk of CV events was reduced by increasing the frequency of BP control to <140/90 mm Hg, but not to <130/80 mm Hg. Similar findings were obtained for the achievement of the BP target in the visit preceding a CV event.

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.

Chronic treatment with ramipril diminishes cardiac remodeling of heart failure after MI to a greater extent than mibefradil. Moreover, 6 weeks after MI, mibefradil treatment results in a slight rise in LVEDP compared with placebo-treated rats. Therefore, treatment with mibefradil might be deleterious rather than beneficial compared with ramipril or even placebo treatment in experimental MI.

The study will randomize 528 kidney transplant patients (11 Canadian centers) with proteinuria and an estimated GFR between 20 and 55 ml/min/1.73 m(2) to either ramipril (5 mg BID) or placebo. Patients, clinical staff and investigators will be blinded to treatment allocation. The primary outcome will be a composite measure incorporating doubling of serum creatinine, end stage renal disease or death. Principal secondary outcomes include: decline in GFR using a radioisotopic method, change in proteinuria, change in blood pressure, incidence of adverse events (e.g. hyperkalemia, anemia), incidence of cardiovascular events and health-related quality of life assessed by the Short Form-36 and the EuroQol-5D.

The African American Study of Kidney Disease and Hypertension examined the effect on renal function decline of 2 blood pressure (BP) goals (low mean arterial pressure [MAP] < or =92 versus usual MAP 102 to 107 buy altace mm Hg) and 3 antihypertensives (ramipril versus amlodipine versus metoprolol). We previously reported that in all drug groups combined the BP intervention had similar effects on the primary outcome of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) slope or the main secondary clinical composite outcome of end-stage renal disease (ESRD), death, or GFR decline by 50% or 25 mL/min per 1.73 m2. This report examines the effect of the BP intervention separately in the 3 drug groups. The BP effect was similar among the drug groups for either GFR slope or the main clinical composite. However, the BP effect differed significantly among the drug groups for the composite of ESRD or death (P=0.035) and ESRD alone (P=0.021). Higher event rates for amlodipine patients assigned to the usual BP goal (0.087 per patient-year for ESRD or death and 0.064 per patient-year for ESRD) were seen compared with the remaining groups of the factorial design (range, 0.041 to 0.050 for ESRD or death; and range, 0.027 to 0.036 for ESRD). The low BP goal was associated with reduced risk of ESRD or death (risk reduction 51%; 95% confidence interval, 13% to 73%) and ESRD (54%; 8% to 77%) for amlodipine patients, but not for patients assigned to the other drug groups. These secondary analyses suggest a benefit of the low BP goal among patients assigned to amlodipine, but they must be interpreted cautiously.

Because across-the-board data indicate that renin and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) expression in the kidney cortex are regulated in parallel and because ANG II can inhibit COX-2 expression, the purpose of our study was to characterize a potential general inhibitory feedback of the renin-angiotensin system on renocortical COX-2 expression in vivo. Rats were fed a high-, normal-, or low-salt diet or were chronically infused with furosemide (60 mg. kg(-1). day(-1)) or the left renal artery was clipped, and the animals were treated in addition to or without the angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor ramipril (10 mg. kg(-1). day(-1)). A high-salt diet reduced expression of COX-2, whereas a low-salt diet, furosemide infusion, and renal artery stenosis stimulated COX-2 expression. Additional angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibition led to further increases in renocortical COX-2 expression by 62, 136, 300, 50, and 70% for a high-, normal-, and low-salt diet, furosemide infusion, and renal artery stenosis, respectively. Thus our data suggest a general inhibitory buy altace effect of the renin-angiotensin system on renocortical COX-2 expression.

We conducted a nested case-control study of Ontarians aged 66 years and older treated with clopidogrel between September 1 2003 and March 31 2013 following acute myocardial infarction. Cases were subjects who died or were hospitalized for reinfarction or heart failure in the subsequent year, and each was matched with up to four controls. The primary outcome was a composite of reinfarction, heart failure or death. The primary analysis examined whether use of the prodrug ACE inhibitors ramipril or perindopril was more common among cases than use of lisinopril buy altace , an active ACE inhibitor.

This study was designed to compare the efficacy and tolerability of amlodipine (AML) and ramipril (RAM) administered once a day in patients affected by mild to moderate primary systemic hypertension. Twenty outpatients, 12 men and 8 women (age range 35-64 years), were enrolled. The patients received single-blind placebo for 2 weeks and thereafter in a double-blind, randomized crossover sequence AML (10 mg) and RAM (5 mg), both for 4 weeks. At the end of each period, the patients underwent buy altace 24-hour noninvasive blood pressure monitoring with readings taken every 10 min during daytime (from 07.00 to 23.00 h) and 20 min during nighttime (from 23.00 to 07.00 h). Both AML and RAM induced a highly significant (p < 0.0001) decrease in blood pressure from 162/103 +/- 7/3 to 132/82 +/- 6/6 and 135/83 +/- 6/5 mm Hg, respectively. The mean blood pressure decreased from 122 +/- 5 to 99 +/- 6 (AML; p < 0.0001) and 100 +/- 5 mm Hg (RAM; p < 0.0001). No significant differences in heart rate were noted during drug administrations. Treatment did not have to be discontinued in any patient because of adverse reactions. In conclusion, both AML and RAM reduced the blood pressure markedly, even if AML proved to be significantly more effective than RAM.

We undertook a multicentre, randomised controlled trial of patients with non-diabetic proteinuric nephropathies receiving background treatment with the ACE inhibitor ramipril (2.5-5 mg/day). We randomly assigned participants either conventional (diastolic <90 mm buy altace Hg; n=169) or intensified (systolic/diastolic <130/80 mm Hg; n=169) blood-pressure control. To achieve the intensified blood-pressure level, patients received add-on therapy with the dihydropyridine calcium-channel blocker felodipine (5-10 mg/day). The primary outcome measure was time to end-stage renal disease over 36 months' follow-up, and analysis was by intention to treat.

This study was undertaken to further clarify the role of kallikrein-kinin and renin-angiotensin systems in the hypotensive mechanisms of the angiotensin-I converting enzyme inhibitor by using highly sensitive and specific radioimmunoassays in patients with essential hypertension. Captopril was administered for buy altace 14 days (chronic effect), and the acute effects of captopril, alacepril and ramipril were also studied in the in-patients with essential hypertension. All of these converting enzyme inhibitors rapidly decreased the blood pressure and plasma angiotensin II levels, and increased plasma and urinary kinin and plasma renin activity in the acute effect. Following the administration of captopril for 14 days, these decreases and increases were maintained. The change of blood pressure was significantly correlated negatively with that of plasma kinin levels and positively with that of plasma angiotensin II levels in both the acute and chronic effect of converting enzyme inhibitors. Urine volume and urinary sodium excretion were markedly augmented, while both the change of urine volume and that of urinary sodium excretion were negatively correlated with the change of blood pressure in the chronic effect. These findings suggest that the hypotensive effect of converting enzyme inhibitors might be caused by an increase of plasma kinin and a decrease of plasma angiotensin II, and in part by an augmentation of urine volume and urinary sodium excretion. In this drug treatment, the renal kallikrein-kinin system may also play some role in the increase of urine volume and urinary sodium excretion through the increased kinin in the kidney.

Most studies of the regression of left ventricular Evista Drug Classification hypertrophy by antihypertensive treatment have methodological weaknesses and have not shown if regression of left ventricular hypertrophy can be obtained independently of blood pressure reduction. In the HYCAR study, after an inclusion phase of 4 to 6 weeks on furosemide (20 mg/day), 115 patients with left ventricular hypertrophy were randomised in a double blind manner to placebo group (N = 40), ramipril, 1.25 mg/day, (N = 38) or 5 mg/day (N = 37) for a period of 6 months. Furosemide was continued during the double blind treatment period. Echocardiography and ambulatory blood pressure monitoring were performed just before the randomisation and at 6 months. At the end of the study, there was no significant difference between the casual and ambulatory blood pressure changes. Expressed in g/m, the left ventricular mass index decreased significantly with respect to placebo in the ramipril 5 mg group (-12.2 +/- 3.9 versus +5.5 +/- 4.3 g/m2, p = 0.003) and in the 1.25 mg group (-7.5 +/- 4.6 g/m2, p = 0.04). The reduction in left ventricular mass index expressed in g/m2 was significant in the 5 mg ramipril (p = 0.008) but not in the 1.25 mg ramipril group (p = 0.06).(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

This study was designed to characterize blood viscosity changes in 13 patients with mild to moderate diastolic hypertension treated with ramipril monotherapy for three months. The ramipril dose was titrated from 2.5 to 20 mg daily to achieve a diastolic blood pressure of less than 90 mm Hg. All patients received a stable dose of ramipril for three months. Viscosity measurements were made at 37 degrees C with the Propecia Generic Reviews Mettler Contraves LS-40 microviscometer. Fibrinogen was determined by the Clauss method by averaging three separately acquired plasma samples. The systolic blood pressure (mean +/- standard deviation) was lowered from 141.2 +/- 9.1 to 129.2 +/- 11.2 mm Hg (p = 0.005) and the diastolic blood pressure was lowered from 95.2 +/- 4.9 to 84.2 +/- 7.3 mm Hg (p = 0.0001). In 13 patients with mild to moderate diastolic hypertension, blood pressure reduction with ramipril was accompanied by no significant changes in blood viscosity, plasma viscosity, serum viscosity or fibrinogen.

Antihypertensive drugs that inhibit the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) have been proposed to have additional benefits beyond their classic effects on the cardiovascular system, including reducing the risk of new-onset diabetes. Whether RAS inhibitors vary in ability to protect against new-onset diabetes is, however, unknown. The angiotensin II type 1 receptor (AT(1)) blocker telmisartan has been discovered to also activate the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma (PPARgamma), an established antidiabetic drug target. In patients with hypertension and biochemical features of the metabolic syndrome, telmisartan has had beneficial effects on lipid and glucose metabolism. As a selective modulator of PPARgamma, telmisartan does not cause the side effects of fluid retention and weight gain associated with conventional thiazolidinedione ligands of PPARgamma. These observations raise the possibility that combined AT(1) receptor blockade and selective PPARgamma modulation with molecules such as telmisartan could provide greater protection from new-onset diabetes and cardiovascular disease than drugs that target either the RAS or PPARgamma alone. The cardioprotective and antidiabetic effects of telmisartan are being assessed in two large clinical trials, the ONgoing Telmisartan Alone in combination with Ramipril Global Endpoint Trial (ONTARGET) and the Telmisartan Randomised AssessmeNt Study in ACE-I iNtolerant subjects with cardiovascular Disease (TRANSCEND).
