Insulin resistance is a major pathological condition associated with obesity and metabolic syndrome. Insulin resistance and the renin-angiotensin system are intimately linked. We evaluated the role of the renin-angiotensin system in the pathogenesis of insulin resistance-associated, non-alcoholic steatohepatitis by using the angiotensin II type 1 receptor blocker olmesartan medoxomil in a diabetic rat model. The effects of olmesartan on methionine- and choline-deficient (MCD) diet-induced steatohepatitis were investigated in obese, diabetic Otsuka Long-Evans Tokushima Fatty (OLETF) rats and control Long-Evans Tokushima Otsuka (LETO) rats. Components of the renin-angiotensin system were up-regulated in the livers of OLETF rats, compared with LETO rats. In OLETF, but not LETO, rats, oral administration of olmesartan for 8 weeks ameliorated insulin resistance. Moreover, olmesartan suppressed MCD diet-induced hepatic steatosis and the hepatic expression of lipogenic genes (sterol regulatory element-binding protein-1c and fatty acid synthase) in OLETF, but not LETO, rats. In both OLETF and LETO rats, olmesartan inhibited hepatic oxidative stress (4-hydroxy-2-nonenal-modified protein) and expression of NADPH oxidase. Olmesartan also inhibited hepatic fibrosis, stellate cell activation, and expression of fibrogenic genes (transforming growth factor-beta, alpha 1 [I] procollagen, plasminogen activator inhibitor-1) in both OLETF and LETO rats. In conclusion, pharmacological blockade of the angiotensin II type 1 receptor slows the development of steatohepatitis in the OLETF rat model. This angiotensin II type 1 receptor blocker may exert insulin resistance-associated effects against hepatic steatosis and inflammation as well as direct effects against the generation of reactive oxygen species and fibrogenesis.

Following a 2- to 3-week placebo run-in phase, patients received OM 20 mg, uptitrated to OM 40 mg, followed by addition of HCTZ 12.5-25 mg step-wise at 3-week intervals if seated cuff BP (SeBP) was ≥120/70 mmHg. Patients below this target SeBP were maintained at their current dose but uptitrated to the next consecutive dose if mean seated cuff systolic BP (SBP) was ≥140 mmHg and/or mean seated cuff diastolic BP was ≥90 mmHg at follow-up visits. Efficacy was assessed by 24-hour ambulatory BP monitoring (ABPM) and SeBP measurements. The primary efficacy variable was the change from baseline in mean 24-hour ambulatory SBP after 12 weeks. Secondary efficacy endpoints included the change from baseline in mean 24-hour ambulatory SBP; change from baseline in ambulatory BP during the daytime (8:00 am-4:00 pm), nighttime (10:00 pm-6:00 am) and the last 6, 4 and 2 hours of the dosing interval; change from baseline in SeBP at each titration step and at study end; and the proportion of patients achieving mean 24-hour ambulatory BP targets and SeBP goals at week 12. The frequency and severity of treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) were also documented.

Hypertension is a major risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Effective control of elevated blood pressure (BP) has been shown to reduce this risk. Early studies of risk reduction assumed that the mechanism by which BP was lowered had little impact on the benefit obtained. Recent evidence, however, suggests that agents that inhibit the renin-angiotensin system may be particularly beneficial. The results of the recent Heart Outcomes Prevention Evaluation (HOPE) trial suggest that angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors have a greater impact on cardiovascular morbidity and mortality than would be anticipated from their antihypertensive effects alone. Angiotensin receptor blockers, the other major class of antihypertensive drugs that inhibit the renin-angiotensin system, have not been widely tested in outcomes trials, but early results suggest that they are beneficial for controlling target organ damage that is related to hypertension. Furthermore, unlike ACE inhibitors, these agents have a side-effect profile that is similar to that of placebo. Based on their efficacy in controlling hypertension and their wider health benefits, together with minimal side effects, angiotensin II (A II) receptor blockers should be considered as first-line agents for the treatment of hypertension, particularly in patients with other cardiovascular risk factors. Preliminary evidence suggests that olmesartan, an A II receptor blocker currently being evaluated for approval for clinical use, may provide antihypertensive efficacy that is superior to other members of the class.

We have evaluated the effects of different doses of an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, enalapril (ENA) and of an angiotensin II type 1 receptor blocker olmesartan (OLM), on extracellular matrix of the heart, kidney, aorta and mesenteric artery of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR). Forty SHR and eight Wistar-Kyoto controls (WKY) were included in the study. Eight SHR were treated with high-dose OLM 15 mg/kg per day, eight with high-dose ENA 25 mg/kg per day, eight with low-dose OLM 1 mg/kg per day and eight with low-dose ENA (2 mg/kg per day). Eight SHR and eight WKY were kept untreated as controls. Treatment was from age 4 to 12 weeks. Systolic blood pressure (SBP) was measured non-invasively every week. The left ventricular weight to body weight (RLVM) was measured, and the cardiac, aortic and glomerular interstitial collagen content was evaluated using Sirius red staining and image analysis. Mesenteric small arteries were dissected and mounted on a micromyograph, and the media:lumen ratio (M/L) was calculated. Collagen subtypes were evaluated by polarized light microscopy. The SHR treated with high-dose OLM or ENA showed a normalization of SBP. The RLVM was significantly increased in untreated SHR compared with untreated WKY, whereas significantly lower values were observed in the groups of SHR treated with high-dose OLM or ENA. A significant increase in cardiac and glomerular collagen content was observed in untreated SHR. Both high- or low-dose OLM and ENA normalized collagen content in the heart and the kidney. Both high-dose OLM and high-dose ENA normalized M/L ratio; however, OLM proved to be more effective than ENA in normalizing collagen pattern. In fact, aortic collagen content was normalized by both high-dose and low-dose OLM, but only by high-dose ENA. In conclusion, both OLM and ENA were significantly and equally effective in the prevention of cardiac and renal damage in SHR, whereas OLM was more effective than ENA in terms of effects on vascular extracellular matrix.

Overall, the combination of olmesartan and HCTZ is as effective as olmesartan and CCB in lowering 24-h, daytime, and night-time ambulatory BP. However, greater lowering is noted with the olmesartan and CCB combination for clinic BP. Thus, out-of-office BP monitoring is necessary to provide better assessment of overall BP and response to treatment. Women and diabetic individuals may have slightly better 24-h ambulatory BP response with the olmesartan and CCB combination therapy.

Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) present a high prevalence of insulin resistance (IR). Some studies suggest that angiotensin II may influence some cellular pathways that contribute to the pathogenesis of IR and stimulate the release of proinflammatory cytokines. Fifty-two patients who had stages 3 and 4 CKD and no diabetes were administered an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB), olmesartan (40 mg), for 16 wk. Before and after ARB treatment, metabolic and inflammatory parameters and adipokines were measured. IR was calculated by Homeostasis Model Assessment (HOMA) index. Baseline data were compared with data that were obtained from 25 healthy control individuals of similar age and normal renal function. Compared with control subjects, patients with CKD presented significantly higher BP and waist circumference, higher triglycerides and lower HDL levels, higher insulin levels, and higher mean HOMA index (6.0 +/- 2.7 versus 2.9 +/- 2.2 muU/ml x mmol/L; P < 0.001). In addition, patients with CKD had increased levels of high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, TNF-alpha, and IL-6. In patients with CKD, leptin was positively correlated to abdominal obesity, insulin levels, and IL-6, and adiponectin was inversely correlated to abdominal obesity and insulin levels. Olmesartan treatment resulted in a significant decrease of BP, urinary protein excretion, plasma glucose (99 +/- 16 versus 92 +/- 14 mg/dl; P < 0.05), insulin (23.1 +/- 8.8 versus 19.9 +/- 9; P < 0.05), HOMA index (6.0 +/- 2.7 versus 4.7 +/- 2.8; P < 0.05), and glycated hemoglobin (5.33 +/- 0.58 versus 4.85 +/- 0.81%; P < 0.01). At the same time, there was a significant reduction of high-sensitivity C-reactive protein levels, from 4.45 mg/L (2.45 to 9.00) to 3.55 mg/L (1.80 to 5.40; P < 0.05) and fibrinogen (412 +/- 100 versus 370 +/- 105 mg/dl; P < 0.05). There were no significant differences in adipokine levels after olmesartan treatment. These data demonstrate that patients with CKD have a high prevalence of IR, metabolic syndrome, and chronic inflammation and that the administration of the ARB olmesartan improves IR and inflammation markers in these patients. Plasma adipokine levels that are related to several metabolic risk factors in patients with CKD were not modified by ARB therapy.

Hypertension is one of the most significant buy benicar and consistent risk factors for many cardiovascular diseases. The global prevalence of hypertension has dramatically increased over recent years. Life-style and genetic factors are generally considered to be primarily responsible for the incidence of hypertension. Concerning the high morbidity rate, setting up an updated standard for hypertensive patients becomes indispensable. According to the widely accepted standard treatments for hypertension, these four basic principles should be taken into account: low dosage; medication should provide long term-control; combination therapies are becoming common; personalized treatments are a newer approach. In most patients with hypertension, adequate control of BP can be achieved with combined therapy. Therefore, antihypertensive agents with complementary mechanisms are now recommended. In this review, we focus on the pharmacology, antihypertensive efficacy, and adverse events (AEs) of olmesartan medoxomil, either alone or in combination with other antihypertensive medications. In conclusion, olmesartan medoxomil, is an angiotensin II receptor blocker with an excellent efficacy in the reduction and stabilization of blood pressure. When combined with calcium channel blockers (CCBs) and diuretics, olmesartan medoxomil has a better effect on controlling BP and reducing AEs in patients.

The aim of the present study was to use ambulatory blood pressure (BP) monitoring (ABPM) to determine the efficacy of a fixed-dose combination of amlodipine (AML) and olmesartan medoxomil (OM) over the 24-hour dosing interval. This 12-week, titrate-to-goal study was conducted in 185 patients with hypertension. Patients were initially treated with AML 5 mg/ day and uptitrated to AML/OM 5/20, 5/40, and 10/40 mg/day every 3 weeks if mean seated BP (SeBP) was ≥ 120/80 mmHg. The primary efficacy endpoint was the change from baseline in mean 24-hour systolic BP at week 12 as assessed by ABPM. At baseline, the mean buy benicar 24-hour ambulatory BP (± standard deviation [SD]) was 144.8 ± 11.1/85.7 ± 7.9 mmHg. At week 12, the change from baseline in mean 24-hour ambulatory BP (± standard error of the mean [SEM]) was -21.4 ± 0.8/-12.7 ± 0.5 mmHg (p < 0.0001 versus baseline). At baseline, the mean SeBP (± SD) was 158.2 ± 12.6/92.8 ± 8.6 mmHg and at week 12, the mean SeBP change (± SEM) from baseline (last observation carried forward) was -24.1 ± 1.1/-12.1 ± 0.7 mmHg (p < 0.0001 versus baseline). Proportions of patients achieving mean 24-hour ambulatory BP prespecified study targets were 70.9% (<130/80 mmHg), 48.3% (<125/75 mmHg), and 40.7% (<120/80 mmHg). Cumulatively, 76.8% of patients uptitrated to AML/OM 10/40 mg/day attained an SeBP goal of <140/90 mmHg. The study drug was well tolerated with few adverse events (peripheral edema, 2.2%; dizziness, 1.1%). An AML/OM-based titration regimen effectively reduces BP in patients with hypertension.

A drug analysis model using MAUT consisting of 10 steps was designed for two drug classes of dihydropyridine calcium channel blockers (CCBs) and angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs). These two drug classes contain the most diverse agents among cardiovascular drugs on Samsung Medical Center's drug formulary. The attributes identified for inclusion in the drug analysis model were effectiveness, safety, patient convenience, and cost, with relative weights of 50%, 30%, 10%, and 10%, respectively. The factors were incorporated into the model to quantify the contribution of each attribute. For each factor, a utility scale of 0-100 was buy benicar established, and the total utility score for each alternative was calculated. An attempt was made to make the model adaptable to changing health care and regulatory circumstances.

Clinical pharmacological models Antihypertensive drugs affecting the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) can be evaluated in single-dose studies in healthy volunteers challenged with angiotensin I or II, or in subjects in whom the RAS has been activated by salt depletion. Such pharmacological studies can be used to investigate dose-response relationships. Objective The relevance of these models in predicting therapeutic dose range has been evaluated by comparing the results of pharmacological studies with those of a conventional dose-finding study in hypertensive patients with the new AT1-receptor antagonist olmesartan medoxomil. Results In healthy volunteers, 2.5-40 mg olmesartan medoxomil single doses significantly inhibited the pressor response to exogenous angiotensin I. A dose-response relationship was observed, with relevant (> 75%) inhibition occurring at doses of 10 mg and above. In a single-dose crossover study in patients with mild-to-moderate hypertension receiving a sodium-restricted diet, statistically significant lowering of mean 24-h blood pressure, measured by ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, was observed at doses of 10-80 mg. By comparison, a large-scale (n = 792), placebo-controlled, dose-ranging study in patients with mild-to-moderate hypertension likewise showed significant superiority over placebo for 10-80 mg olmesartan medoxomil once-daily doses. Conclusion Single-dose clinical pharmacology studies provided an accurate indication of the effective dose range of a new AT1-receptor antagonist Such buy benicar models can be useful in identifying, for more detailed study, the likely therapeutic dose range of new drugs acting on the RAS. However, the dose-response still requires testing in large target populations.

Desirable features of antihypertensive agents include efficacy, tolerability, prolonged duration of action and rapid achievement of target blood pressure (BP). Recent studies have examined the relationship between the onset of antihypertensive effect and cardiovascular events. Data from the Valsartan Antihypertensive Long-term Use Evaluation (VALUE), the Study on Cognition and Prognosis in the Elderly (SCOPE), and the Systolic Hypertension in Europe (Syst-Eur) trials support the hypothesis that the time it takes to reach target BP influences cardiovascular outcomes. VALUE, which buy benicar compared BP-lowering and clinical event rates between patients treated with the angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) valsartan or the calcium channel blocker (CCB) amlodipine as well as between those who achieved immediate or delayed BP control, provides the strongest evidence of this to date. Additional data from SCOPE and Syst-Eur suggest that delays of 3 months to 2 years in starting antihypertensive therapy can increase the risk of certain cardiovascular end points, especially stroke. These data suggest that it may be beneficial to examine the efficacy of antihypertensive agents, not only long term, but also at earlier times to assess the onset and impact of early antihypertensive effect. The ARB olmesartan medoxomil (olmesartan) and the CCB amlodipine were compared in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial, which demonstrated that the onset of antihypertensive effect of olmesartan is comparable with that of amlodipine. Another study demonstrated that more patients treated with olmesartan achieved target BPs within 2 weeks of treatment compared with the ARBs losartan, valsartan and irbesartan.

We investigated in Lewis normotensive rats the effect of coronary artery ligation on the expression of cardiac angiotensin-converting enzymes (ACE and ACE 2) and angiotensin II type-1 receptors (AT1a-R) 28 days after myocardial infarction. Losartan, olmesartan, or the vehicle (isotonic saline) was administered via osmotic minipumps Arjuna Himalaya Medicine for 28 days after coronary artery ligation or sham operation. Coronary artery ligation caused left ventricular dysfunction and cardiac hypertrophy. These changes were associated with increased plasma concentrations of angiotensin I, angiotensin II, angiotensin-(1-7), and serum aldosterone, and reduced AT1a-R mRNA. Cardiac ACE and ACE 2 mRNAs did not change. Both angiotensin II antagonists attenuated cardiac hypertrophy; olmesartan improved ventricular contractility. Blockade of the AT1a-R was accompanied by a further increase in plasma concentrations of the angiotensins and reduced serum aldosterone levels. Both losartan and olmesartan completely reversed the reduction in cardiac AT1a-R mRNA observed after coronary artery ligation while augmenting ACE 2 mRNA by approximately 3-fold. Coadministration of PD123319 did not abate the increase in ACE 2 mRNA induced by losartan. ACE 2 mRNA correlated significantly with angiotensin II, angiotensin-(1-7), and angiotensin I levels. These results provide evidence for an effect of angiotensin II blockade on cardiac ACE 2 mRNA that may be due to direct blockade of AT1a receptors or a modulatory effect of increased angiotensin-(1-7).

The objectives of this study were to identify the factors influencing antihypertensive response to the angiotensin receptor blocker, olmesartan medoxomil, or the calcium channel blocker, azelnidipine, and to discuss the possibility of utilizing them as predictors for drug selection prior to therapy. A two-way crossover study of olmesartan medoxomil and azelnidipine was conducted in 29 patients with mild to moderate essential hypertension. The 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure measurements (ABPM) and plasma drug concentrations were obtained on the first and at the end of each treatment period, and were analyzed using population pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) modeling approach. The population PK/PD models considering circadian variations in baseline blood pressure well described the observed plasma drug concentrations and 24-hour ABPM profiles. Pre-treatment plasma renin activity (PRA) was identified as a significant covariate on Cymbalta Generic Price the maximum drug effect (E(max)) of olmesartan, whereas azelnidpine E(max) was independent of patient background characteristics investigated. No patient was found to have a high E(max) to one agent who also had a high E(max) to the other. In conclusion, the effects of olmesartan medoxomil and azelnidipine were modestly correlated with pharmacokinetic profiles, and the pre-treatment PRA level could be a useful determinant of responsiveness in selecting olmesartan medoxomil and azelnidipine.

Angiotensin-receptor blockers (ARBs) are an important class of agents used for the treatment of arterial hypertension. Olmesartan medoxomil, the seventh latest ARB approved by the US FDA, is an oral, once-daily, AT(1)-receptor selective ARB with high receptor affinity. Pharmacologically, it acts as a competitive and insurmountable Ang II antagonist with linear pharmacokinetics and without cytochrome P450 interaction. The drug is licensed for the treatment of arterial hypertension alone or in combination with other antihypertensive agents. Olmesartan has demonstrated its dose-dependent inhibitory effect on Ang I-induced blood pressure responses between 10 and 80 mg in Phase II studies. These results, confirmed in an international clinical trial programme covering over 3000 hypertensive patients in numerous studies, demonstrated rapid blood pressure-lowering effects within 1 week. A daily oral dose of 20 mg olmesartan is considered to be the optimal dose. In clinical trials and postmarketing studies, olmesartan has been shown to be safe and well tolerated with an adverse event Tegretol Xr Cost profile similar to the placebo. Active comparative studies demonstrated either similar or superior efficacy of olmesartan compared with other ARBs, angiotensin-converting enzymes inhibitors, beta-blockers or calcium-channel blockers. Besides its antihypertensive efficacy, olmesartan was shown in clinical trials to reduce vascular microinflammation, decrease intrarenal vascular resistance, significantly reduce vascular remodeling of small resistance arteries and exert antiatherosclerotic effects by significantly reducing the volume of large atherosclerotic plaques.

To examine whether and how heart ANG II influences the coordination between cardiomyocyte hypertrophy and coronary angiogenesis and contributes to the pathogenesis of diabetic cardiomyopathy, we used Spontaneously Diabetic Torii (SDT) rats treated without and with olmesartan medoxomil (an ANG II receptor blocker). In SDT rats, left ventricular (LV) ANG II, but not circulating ANG II, increased at 8 and 16 wk after diabetes onset. SDT rats developed LV hypertrophy and diastolic dysfunction at 8 wk, followed by LV systolic dysfunction at 16 wk, without hypertension. The SDT rat LV exhibited cardiomyocyte hypertrophy and increased hypoxia-inducible factor-1α expression at 8 wk and to a greater degree at 16 wk and interstitial fibrosis at 16 wk only. In SDT rats, coronary angiogenesis increased with enhanced capillary proliferation and upregulation of the angiogenic factor VEGF at 8 wk but decreased VEGF with enhanced capillary apoptosis and suppressed capillary proliferation despite the upregulation of VEGF at 16 wk. In SDT rats, the phosphorylation of VEGF receptor-2 increased at 8 wk alone, whereas the expression of the antiangiogenic factor thrombospondin-1 increased at 16 wk alone. All these events, except for hyperglycemia or blood pressure, were reversed by olmesartan medoxomil. These results suggest that LV ANG II in SDT rats at 8 and 16 wk induces cardiomyocyte hypertrophy without affecting hyperglycemia or blood pressure, which promotes and suppresses coronary angiogenesis, respectively, via VEGF and thrombospondin-1 produced from hypertrophied cardiomyocytes under chronic hypoxia. Thrombospondin-1 may play an important role in the progression of diabetic cardiomyopathy in this model.

Increased cardiovascular mortality is an unresolved problem in patients with chronic renal failure. Cardiac hypertrophy is observed in the majority of patients with chronic renal failure undergoing haemodialysis. However, the mechanisms, including signal transduction pathways, responsible for cardiac hypertrophy in renal failure remain unknown. We examined the subcellular localization of protein kinase C (PKC) isoforms and phosphorylation activities of 3 mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase families in hypertrophied hearts of progressive renal injury rat model by subtotal nephrectomy (SNx). We also examined the effects of a novel angiotensin II type-1 receptor antagonist, CS-866, on the PKC translocation, MAP kinase activity and cardiac hypertrophy in SNx rats. The left ventricle/body weight ratios were significantly larger in SNx rats than in sham rats at 1, 2, and 4 weeks after surgery. The translocation of PKCalpha and epsilon isoforms to membranous fraction was observed in SNx rat hearts at 1, 2, and 4 weeks after surgery. Activation of extracellular signal regulated kinase (ERK) 1/2, but not p38 MAP kinase and c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK), was observed at 1 and 2 weeks after surgery. Angiotensin II receptor blockade with CS-866 (1 mg kg-1 day-1) prevented cardiac hypertrophy, PKC translocation and ERK1/2 activation in SNx rats without significant changes in blood pressure. These data suggest that PKC and ERK1/2 are activated by an angiotensin II receptor-mediated pathway and might play an important role in the progression of cardiac hypertrophy in renal failure.
