In the pithed rat model endogenously generated angiotensin II facilitates neurally mediated increments in vascular resistance. Without the administration of the angiotensin II type 1 (AT1) antagonist, irbesartan, the facilitating effect of AVP was not visible. However, after the administration of the AT1 antagonist, irbesartan, the facilitating effect of AVP became apparent. The stimulation-induced rise in diastolic blood pressure (DBP) was enhanced in the presence of AVP from 63.7 +/- 4.5 to 78.6 +/- 4.2 mmHg, at a stimulation frequency of 4 Hz. The vasopressin receptor V1 antagonist, SR-49059, completely inhibited this AVP-induced facilitation, whereas the V2 antagonist, SR-121463B, or the V2 agonist, desmopressin, did not. The DRC of exogenously administered NA was not influenced by AVP.

A selective, accurate, precise and reproducible high-performance liquid chromatographic assay was developed for the quantitation of irbesartan, an angiotensin II antagonist, in human plasma and urine samples. The method involved solid-phase extraction of irbesartan and internal standard (I.S.) using a 100-mg Isolute CN cartridge. A portion of the eluate was injected onto an ODS analytical column connected to a fluorescence detector that was set at an excitation wavelength of 250 nm and an emission wavelength of 371 nm. The mobile phase consisted of 50% acetonitrile and a 50% weak phosphate-triethylamine solution, pH 3.5, at a flow-rate of 0.8 ml/min. The assay was linear from 1 to 1000 ng/ml with both plasma and urine. In either matrix, the lower limit of quantitation was 1 ng/ml. The analyses of quality control samples indicated that the nominal values could be predicted with an accuracy >95%. The inter- and intra-day coefficients of variation for the analyses in both matrices were <8%. Irbesartan was stable in both human plasma and urine for at least seven months at -20 degrees C. The application of the assay to a pharmacokinetic study is described.

Inhibition of the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) in the setting of chronic left ventricular (LV) dysfunction has been demonstrated to have beneficial effects on survival and symptoms. However, whether ACE inhibition has direct effects on myocyte contractile processes and if these effects are mediated primarily through the AT1 angiotensin-II receptor subtype remains unclear. The present project examined the relationship between changes in LV and myocyte function and beta adrenergic receptor transduction in four groups of six dogs each: (1) Rapid Pace: LV failure induced by chronic rapid pacing (4 weeks; 216 +/- 2 bpm); (2) Rapid Pace/ACEI: concomitant ACE inhibition (ACEI: fosinopril 30 mg/kg b.i.d.) with chronic pacing; (3) Rapid Pace/AT1 Block: concomitant AT1 Ang-II receptor blockade [Irbesartan: SR 47436(BMS-186295) 30 mg/kg b.i.d.] with chronic pacing; and (4) CONTROL: sham controls. With Rapid Pace, the LV end-diastolic volume increased by 62% and the ejection fraction decreased by 53% from control. With Rapid Pace/ACEI, the LV end-diastolic volume was reduced by 24% and the ejection fraction increased by 26% from Rapid Pace only values. Rapid Pace/AT1 Block did not improve LV geometry or function from Rapid Pace values. Myocyte contractile function decreased by 40% with Rapid Pace and increased from this value by 32% with Rapid Pace/ACEI. Rapid Pace/AT1 Block had no effect on myocyte function when compared with Rapid Pace values. With Rapid Pace/ACEI, beta receptor density and cyclic AMP production were normalized and associated with an improvement in myocyte beta adrenergic response compared with Rapid Pace only. Although Rapid Pace/AT1 also normalized beta receptor density, cyclic AMP production was unchanged and myocyte beta adrenergic response was reduced by 15% compared with Rapid Pace only. ACE inhibition with chronic rapid pacing improved LV and myocyte geometry and function, and normalized beta receptor density and cyclic AMP production. However, AT1 Ang-II receptor blockade with chronic rapid pacing failed to provide similar protective effects on LV and myocyte geometry and function. These unique findings suggest that the effects of ACE inhibition on LV geometry and myocyte contractile processes in the setting of developing LV failure are not primarily caused by modulation of AT1 Ang-II receptor activation.

Several evidences indicate that increased cardiac mitochondrial monoamine oxidase type A (MAO-A) activity associates with a failing phenotype. Till now, the mechanism underlying such relation is largely unknown. We explored the hypothesis that exposure of cardiomyocytes to AT-II caused activation of MAO-A and also of catalase and aldehyde dehydrogenase activities, enzymes involved in degrading MAO's end products. Left ventricular cardiomyocytes were isolated from normoglycemic (N) and streptozotocin-injected (50 mg/kg) rats (D) treated or not treated with losartan (20 mg/kg/day in drinking water; DLos and NLos, respectively), a type 1 receptor (AT1) antagonist, for 3 weeks. In each group of cells, MAO, catalase and aldehyde dehydrogenase activities were measured radiochemically and spectrophotometrically. The same enzymes were also measured in HL-1 immortalized cardiomyocytes not exposed and exposed to AT-II (100 nM for 18 h) in the absence and in the presence of irbesartan (1 μM), an AT1 antagonist. MAO-A catalase and aldehyde dehydrogenase activities were found significantly higher in D, than in N cells. MAO-A positively correlated with catalase activity in D cells. MAO-A and aldehyde dehydrogenase but not catalase over-activation, were prevented in DLos cells. Similarly, MAO-A activity, but not catalase and aldehyde dehydrogenase increased significantly in HL-1 cells acutely exposed to AT-II and this increase was prevented when irbesartan, an AT1 antagonist was present. Over-activation of cardiomyocyte MAO-A activity is among acute (18 h) and short-term (2-weeks of diabetes) cardiac effects of AT-II and a novel target of AT1 antagonists, first line treatments of diabetic cardiomyopathy.

The bioavailability of two 300 mg irbesartan (CAS 138402-11-6)/12.5 mg hydrochlorothiazide (CAS 58-93-5) tablet formulations was compared, using Co-Ir-vell tablets as test formulation and the originator product as reference formulation.

avapro reviews

Combined RAS therapies failed to improve upon single arm therapies. However, while irbesartan previously inhibited tumour growth in this model, in the current experiments irbesartan failed to affect tumour burden. Subsequent analysis showed a cancer-cell specific upregulation of the angiotensin II type I receptor (AT1R) in irbesartan-insensitive compared to irbesartan-sensitive tumours. The upregulation of AT1R was associated with an increase in proliferation and VEGF expression by cancer cells. While animals bearing irbesartan-sensitive tumours showed a marked decrease in the number of proliferating cells in the liver and VEGF-expressing infiltrating cells in the tumour following AT1R treatment, these were unchanged by treatment in animals bearing irbesartan-insensitive (high AT1R expressing) tumours.

Advances in scientific research over the last century have permitted the recognition and characterization of the structure and function of an enzymatic pathway involved in cardiovascular homeostasis and blood pressure control, namely the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. This system may be reversibly blocked by drugs acting at different levels: renin inhibitors, angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors and AT1 angiotensin II receptor antagonists. Lacking clinical experience with effects of AT1 angiotensin II receptor antagonists on the cardiovascular system are practically identical to those observed with angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors. The efficacy and safety of drugs blocking the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system in the reduction of blood pressure, the regression of cardiovascular remodeling, the prevention of progression of diabetic nephropathy to end-stage renal failure, and the prevention of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality is well established. These hemodynamic effects of AT1 angiotensin II receptor antagonists treatment are achieved with less adverse effects than with angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors. Furthermore, the association of angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors and AT1 angiotensin II receptor antagonists allows a more effective renin-angiotensin-aldosterone Systems blockade and improves the hemodynamic and non-hemodynamic effects. This possibility opens up new perspectives in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases, the most common cause of death at the end of the millennium in developed countries.

Recent studies suggest that angiotensin II (Ang II) plays a role in the adipogenesis of murine preadipocytes. Here, we examined the role of Ang II for the differentiation of primary cultured human preadipocytes. Preadipocytes were isolated from human adipose tissue and stimulated buy avapro to differentiate. Quantitation of gene expression during adipogenesis was performed for renin-angiotensin system (RAS) genes. The influence of the RAS on adipogenic differentiation was investigated by addition of either angiotensinogen (AGT), Ang II, or angiotensin receptor antagonists to the differentiation medium. We also examined the influence of adipocytes on adipogenesis by co-culture experiments. Expression of the RAS genes AGT, renin, angiotensin-converting enzyme, and Ang II type 1 receptor increased during adipogenesis. Stimulation of the Ang II type 1 receptor by Ang II reduced adipose conversion, whereas blockade of this receptor markedly enhanced adipogenesis. Adipocytes were able to inhibit preadipocyte differentiation in the co-culture, and this effect was abolished by blockade of the Ang II type 1 receptor. This finding points to a functional role of the RAS in the differentiation of human adipose tissue. Because AGT secretion and Ang II generation are characteristic features of adipogenesis, we postulate a paracrine negative-feedback loop that inhibits further recruitment of preadipocytes by maturing adipocytes.

1. This study investigated the effects of blocking the AT1 angiotensin receptors with irbesartan, either peripherally or centrally, on systemic blood pressure, intracranial pressure and cerebral perfusion pressure following experimental subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) in urethane-anaesthetized buy avapro rats. Sympathetic nervous activation was determined by measuring plasma noradrenaline levels. 2. In untreated animals, SAH induced a sustained increased in intracranial pressure from 2.1 +/- 0.3 to 16 +/- 2 mmHg (3 h, P < 0.001). Cerebral perfusion pressure was reduced by 20 % (P < 0.001), this reduction being maintained for 3 h. Sympathetic activation was evident in the high level of plasma noradrenaline measured 3 h post-SAH (751 +/- 104 vs. 405 +/- 33 pg ml(-1), P < 0.05). 3. Acute peripheral pretreatment with irbesartan (3 mg kg(-1), I.V.) prevented the rise in plasma noradrenaline and further aggravated the decrease in cerebral perfusion pressure by producing transient systemic hypotension (blood pressure was 85 +/- 6 mmHg at 2 h post-SAH vs. 100 +/- 3 mmHg, P < 0.01). 4. Intracisternal pretreatment with irbesartan (0.035 mg) did not prevent the rise in plasma noradrenaline post-SAH but enhanced the rise in intracranial pressure by 75 % compared with untreated animals. 5. This study demonstrates that peripheral endogenous angiotensin II interacts with the sympathetic nervous system in order to maintain an adequate cerebral perfusion following SAH. Endogenous angiotensin II in the brain seems to exert a protective effect by counteracting the elevation in intracranial pressure that occurs following experimental SAH.

Irbesartan (IRB) is an angiotensin II receptor blocker antihypertensive agent. The aim of the present investigation was to develop a self-nanoemulsifying drug delivery system (SNEDDS) to enhance the oral bioavailability of poorly water-soluble IRB. The solubility of IRB in various oils was determined to identify the oil phase of SNEDDS. Various surfactants and co-surfactants were screened for their ability to emulsify the selected oil. Pseudoternary phase diagrams were constructed to identify the efficient self-emulsifying region. The optimized SNEDDS formulation contained IRB (75 mg), Cremophor(®) EL (43.33%), Carbitol(®) (21.67%) and Capryol(®) 90 (32%). SNEDDS was further evaluated for its percentage transmittance, emulsification time, drug content, phase separation, dilution, droplet size and zeta potential. The optimized formulation of IRB-loaded SNEDDS exhibited complete in buy avapro vitro drug release in 15 min as compared with the plain drug, which had a limited dissolution rate. It was also compared with the pure drug solution by oral administration in male Wister rats. The in vivo study exhibited a 7.5-fold increase in the oral bioavailability of IRB from SNEDDS compared with the pure drug solution. These results suggest the potential use of SNEDDS to improve dissolution and oral bioavailability of poorly water-soluble IRB.

Acceptance of the notion that physiologically specific interruption of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) is of considerable therapeutic benefit in the treatment of hypertension and congestive heart failure has generated great interest in the search for novel pharmacological inhibitors. The RAAS is expressed at the whole body, organ/tissue and cellular level through the action of the octapeptide angiotensin II (Ang II), the primary effector molecule of the RAAS. The availability of selective, potent, orally active and long-acting nonpeptide Ang II type 1 (AT1) receptor antagonists provided the opportunity to obtain the benefits of selectively blocking the RAAS at the level of the AT1 receptor that mediates most, if not all, of the important actions of Ang II, and avoid the nonspecificity of the Ang I converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. Losartan was the first, but by no means remained the only nonpeptide AT1 receptor antagonist. Numerous other "sartans" have emerged in the past several years and successfully completed clinical development. With the exception of Eprosartan, all others, i.e. Candesartan, Irbesartan, Saprisartan, Tasosartan, Telmisartan, Valsartan and Zolasartan, are based on modifications of Losartan's prototypic chemical structure. AT1 receptor antagonists represent the newest addition to the arsenal of cardiovascular therapeutics. The predominant role of the AT1 receptor in mediating the pathophysiological role of Ang II underlies the effectiveness of this novel class of agents to lower arterial blood pressure, reduce pre- and afterload, inhibit sympathetic nervous system activity and prevent cardiovascular hypertrophy and cardiac failure induced buy avapro by inappropriate control of the RAAS.

Irbesartan is a novel AT1 subtype angiotensin II receptor antagonist. Blockade of AT1 receptors by irbesartan is not competitive, but "insurmountable". The drug inhibits in a significant dose-dependent manner the maximal contractile response that can be induced by angiotensin II in isolated strips of rabbit aorta. Even high doses of angiotensin II are unable to overcome the AT1 specific buy avapro receptor blockade. The drug is directly active and requires no prior biotransformation. Its bioavaility after oral administration is excellent (60-80%) and is not altered by meals. The maximal hypotensive effect is measured 3-6 h after intake. The long half life (11-15 h) allows administration in one single daily dose. Irbesartan is registered in Belgium fot the treatment of essential arterial hypertension only. The hypotensive clinical effects, present from the start, become obvious after 1-2 weeks and maximal after 4-6 weeks. The usual daily dose is 150 mg. If needed, it can be increased up to 300 mg/day or, else, be decreased to 75 mg daily in the dialysed or aged patient. Side effects are negligible.

An in vitro assessment of 209 frequently prescribed drugs and related xenobiotics was carried out to examine their potential to inhibit CYP2C8. A validated sensitive, moderate-throughput high-performance liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC/MS/MS) assay was used to detect N-desethylamodiaquine, the CYP2C8-derived major metabolite of amodiaquine metabolism, using heterologously expressed recombinant CYP2C8 (rhCYP2C8) and pooled human liver microsomes. The 209 drugs were first tested at 30 muM for their ability to inhibit rhCYP2C8. Forty-eight compounds exhibited greater than 50% inhibition and were further evaluated for measurement of IC50. The six most potent inhibitors (IC50 <1 microM) from this set were measured for IC50 in pooled human liver microsomes, and the most potent inhibitor identified was the leukotriene receptor antagonist, montelukast (IC50 = 19.6 nM). Inhibitors of CYP2C8 were identified from a wide variety of therapeutic classes, with no single class predominating. Other potent inhibitors included candesartan cilexetil (cyclohexylcarbonate ester prodrug of candesartan), zafirlukast, clotrimazole, felodipine, and mometasone furoate. Seventeen moderate inhibitors of rhCYP2C8 (1 < IC50 < 10 microM) included salmeterol, raloxifene, fenofibrate, ritonavir, levothyroxine, tamoxifen, loratadine, quercetin, oxybutynin, medroxyprogesterone, simvastatin, ketoconazole, ethinyl estradiol, spironolactone, lovastatin, nifedipine, and irbesartan. These in vitro data were used along with clinical pharmacokinetic information in predicting potential drug-drug Buy Cheap Nexium interactions that could occur by inhibition of CYP2C8. Although almost all drugs tested are not expected to cause drug interactions via inhibition of CYP2C8, montelukast was identified as being of concern as a potential inhibitor of clinical relevance. These findings are discussed in context to potential drug interactions that could be observed between these agents and drugs for which CYP2C8 is involved in metabolism and warrant investigation of the possibility of clinical drug interactions mediated by inhibition of this enzyme.

This study assessed the role of angiotensin II type 1 (AT1) receptor antagonists on inflammatory mechanisms involved in atherogenesis. Specific inflammatory markers included solubilized tumor necrosis factor-alpha receptor II (sTNF-alphaRII), vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1) and superoxide. In addition, the AT1 receptor blocker irbesartan was evaluated for its ability to suppress these markers in individuals with atherosclerosis.

Despite the introduction of new antihypertensive agents such as angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and calcium channel antagonists, the blood pressure of fewer than 30% of hypertensive patients is controlled with current therapies; compliance and continuation with medication are poor. The renin-angiotensin system is important in the pathophysiology of hypertension, end-organ damage and congestive cardiac failure. Irbesartan is an angiotensin II receptor antagonist that provides dose-dependent, specific, insurmountable blockade of the AT1 receptor both in vivo and in vitro. It is rapidly absorbed after oral administration, has a bioavailability of 60-80% with no food effect, does not require metabolism to a bioactive compound, and is excreted by both biliary and renal routes so that dosage adjustments are unnecessary in patients with renal or hepatic disease. Irbesartan produces dose-dependent blood pressure reductions, with 24 h activity confirmed by ambulatory blood pressure monitoring. Irbesartan is effective in the elderly and non-elderly, men and women and in cases of mild and severe hypertension. The recommended starting dosage is 150 mg once daily (o.d.), which can be increased to 300 mg. Its antihypertensive effect is accentuated by diuretic co-administration. In controlled clinical trials, irbesartan was at least as effective as atenolol, hydrochlorothiazide, amlodipine and enalapril. In a double-blind study, irbesartan 300 mg was more effective than losartan 100 mg, and in a dose-titration study, irbesartan 150-300 mg produced significantly greater blood pressure reductions than losartan 50-100 mg. In pooled data from nine placebo-controlled studies, adverse event and discontinuation rates for irbesartan were similar to those for placebo, and there was no relationship between dose and adverse effects. Preliminary clinical data suggest positive haemodynamic effects in heart failure and renoprotective effects in diabetic nephropathy.

ACE inhibitors delay the progression from incipient to overt diabetic nephropathy and reduce albumin excretion rate (AER), independently of blood pressure. Angiotensin II type 1 receptor antagonists produce similar effects on microalbuminuria and mean arterial pressure. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of irbesartan on microalbuminuria and blood pressure in hypertensive and normotensive type 2 diabetic patients.
