At the recommended dose of 80 mg once daily, azilsartan is reported to be an efficacious BP-lowering agent. With once-daily dosing and a favorable side-effect profile, azilsartan is an attractive option for the treatment of hypertension. There is a lack of data supporting the use of azilsartan for improvement in cardiovascular outcomes; therefore, azilsartan is not approved for indications other than the treatment of hypertension.

altace dosing

The effect of chronic oral treatment with the angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor ramipril at antihypertensive and sub-antihypertensive doses, on vascular morphology and function as well as left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) and cardiac capillary length density was investigated in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR). Treatment was commenced before hypertension developed (prevention study) or in adult animals with established hypertension (regression study). In both studies, high-dose ramipril reduced ACE activity in plasma, heart and aorta, normalised blood pressure, and prevented LVH or caused regression of LVH. Low-dose ramipril did not prevent the development of hypertension or LVH, but caused an increase in cardiac capillary length density. In adult hypertensive animals, low-dose ramipril did not reduce blood pressure but caused regression of LVH. In both studies, vascular function as tested in the aortic vessels was improved not only after high- but also after low-dose ACE inhibitor treatment: an inhibition of vascular ACE was associated with attenuated vasoconstrictor responses to norepinephrine and enhanced dilator responses to acetylcholine and bradykinin. A reduction of vascular hypertrophy/hyperplasia in the mesenteric vessels was achieved by the antihypertensive dose of ramipril in the prevention but not the regression study. Our data demonstrate that an improvement of vascular function in SHR can be achieved by chronic ACE inhibition with ramipril independently of structural changes and of the antihypertensive action exerted by the drug. LVH was reduced even at a sub-antihypertensive dose of ramipril in the regression but not the prevention study. In the prevention study, however, low-dose ramipril, like high-dose ramipril, was able to protect the heart by preventing cardiac microvascular rarefaction.

Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) exerts beneficial effects on the cardiovascular system in part by exerting antioxidant activity. Given that oxidant stress is a key cause of endothelial dysfunction in diabetes, we investigated whether ANP improves endothelial function in rats with diabetes. Rats were injected with streptozotocin (55 mg/kg iv) to induce type 1 diabetes or the citrate vehicle as controls (n=12). After 4 weeks the diabetic rats were treated with ANP (10 pmol/kg/min sc, n=12) or the antioxidant tempol (1.5 mmol/kg/day sc, n=11), both by osmotic minipump, ramipril (1 mg/kg per day in the drinking water) or remained untreated (n=11). After a further 4 weeks, anaesthetised rats were killed by exsanguination and the thoracic aortae collected for examination of vascular activity and measurement of superoxide generation. Diabetic rats showed elevated plasma glucose concentration (45+/-3 mM) compared to controls (10+/-1 mM) and this was not affected by ANP (43+/-3 mM), ramipril (41+/-2 mM) or tempol (43+/-2 mM). Endothelium-dependent relaxation ex vivo in response to acetylcholine was impaired in diabetic rats (Rmax=66+/-4%) compared to control rats (Rmax=94+/-1%) but treatment with ANP (Rmax=80+/-4%), ramipril (Rmax=88+/-2%) or tempol (Rmax=81+/-5%) significantly improved those responses. Relaxant responses to the endothelium-independent vasodilator sodium nitroprusside were enhanced by treatment of diabetic rats with ANP or ramipril and their combination; but not by tempol. Superoxide generation was significantly elevated in aorta from untreated diabetic rats (649+/-146% of control). In diabetic rats, superoxide generation was significantly attenuated by ANP (to 229+/-78%) or tempol (to 186+/-64%). This study demonstrates that ANP improves vascular oxidant stress in concert with endothelial function, independent of any effect on plasma glucose levels. These studies may lead to new therapies, based on natriuretic peptide and/or antioxidant approaches, for ameliorating the vascular complications of diabetes.

The physiological effects of ACE inhibitors may act in part through a kinin-dependent mechanism. We investigated the effect of chronic ACE-inhibitor treatment on functional kinin B(1)- and B(2)-receptor expression, which are the molecular entities responsible for the biological effects of kinins.

There is increasing evidence suggesting angiotensin II (AII) may inhibit memory formation in a range of conditioned avoidance and habituation learning tasks in rodents. We were interested to determine if AII might also play an inhibitory role in spatial learning. Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, which block the formation of AII from AI, improve acquisition and/or retention of basal performance inhibited by the muscarinic receptor antagonist, scopolamine, in conditioned avoidance and habituation tasks. In hooded Wistar rats, over 5 days of training in a water maze neither the ACE inhibitor, ceranapril 5 and 50 micrograms/kg/day, nor the ACE inhibitor, ramipril 2 and 10 mg/kg/day, altered the increase in path length produced by administration of scopolamine 0.75 mg/kg/day. In probe trails (without platform), on the last day of training, ceranapril 50 micrograms/kg produced a 35% further deterioration in performance in the scopolamine-treated rats (P < 0.02). Administration of the substrate, renin, that leads to AII formation, did not alter water maze performance over 5 days of training. The angiotensin receptor antagonist, losartan, has been shown to improve basal and scopolamine-impaired performance in a habituation task and reverse the inhibition in long-term potentiation produced by diazepam. However, neither losartan 10 and 30 mg/kg/day nor ramipril 2 and 10 mg/kg/day reversed diazepam-impaired (3 mg/kg/day) acquisition of the spatial memory task over 5 days of training. These studies suggest AII does not inhibit spatial learning in rats in the constant platform position water maze task nor does it mediate the inhibitory effects of scopolamine or diazepam in this task.

Common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) is a heterogenous group of predominantly antibody-deficiency disorders that make up the greatest proportion of patients with symptomatic primary hypogammaglobulinemia. The rare coincidence of amyloidosis and hypogammaglobulinemia has been reported previously. Contrary to the usual insidious, slowly progressive disease following hepatitis C infection, a rapidly progressive cirrhotic form can develop in hypogammaglobulinemic patients. We report a HCV-positive patient with a new onset of nephrotic syndrome and systemic amyloidosis secondary to CVID. Blood analyses showed serum creatinine of 1.8 mg/dL and serum albumin of 3.1 gm/dL; 24-h urinary protein was 11 800 mg/day. Serum immunoglobulin levels were IgG 340 mg/dL, IgM 18 mg/dL, IgA 11 mg/dL. Duodenal biopsy revealed AA-type amyloidosis with potassium permanganate and Congo red staining. After a month of antiproteinuric therapy, the proteinuria was reduced to 3350 mg/day.

The oxidative modification of low-density lipoproteins (LDL) is a key event in the formation of atheromatous lesions. Indeed, oxidized derivatives accumulate in the vascular wall and promote a local inflammatory process which triggers the progression of the atheromatous plaque. Myeloperoxidase (MPO) has been mentioned as a major contributor to this oxidative process. It takes part in the oxidation both of lipids by chlorination and peroxidation and of apolipoprotein B-100. Based on recent observations with several anti-inflammatory and thiol-containing drugs, the present study was designed to test the hypothesis that anti-hypertensive agents from the angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors group inhibit the oxidative modifications of Apo B-100 caused by MPO. Captopril, ramipril, enalapril, lisinopril and fosinopril were assessed by measuring: their inhibiting effect on the MPO/H(2)O(2)/Cl(-) system, the accumulation of compound II, which reflects the inhibition of the synthesis of HOCl and the LDL oxidation by MPO in presence of several concentrations of ACE inhibitors. Only captopril, a thiol-containing ACE inhibitor, was able to significantly decrease the oxidative modification of LDL in a dose dependent manner and this by scavenging HOCl. This efficient anti-hypertensive drug therefore appears to also protect against the atherosclerotic process by this newly documented mechanism.

The interaction between an inhibitor of angiotensin I converting enzyme (ramipril) and renal lithium handling was analysed in conscious, normotensive Wistar rats in the absence or the presence of a specific bradykinin B2 receptor antagonist, icatibant. The rats were treated for 5 days with ramipril (1 mg/kg/day p.o.) or its vehicle, alone or together with icatibant (0.1 mg/kg/day, s.c. infusion). Lithium chloride (8.3 mg/kg i.p.) was given as a single dose on day 5. Systolic blood pressure and heart rate were measured by tail plethysmography on day 3 (3, 9 and 15 h after ramipril administration) and renal function on day 4 (0-6 and 6-24 h urine sampling) and day 5 (0-6 h urine sampling). In another group of rats, 24 h sodium excretion was assessed during the first 4 days of ramipril treatment. Ramipril decreased renal lithium clearance (90+/-8 vs. 142+/-10 microl/min/100 g, P<0.001, n=24) and increased the fractional lithium reabsorption (74.3+/-1.9 vs. 66.7+/-1.7%, P<0.05) and plasma lithium concentration (0.108+/-0.006 vs. 0.085+/-0.004 mM, P<0.01). Alteration of renal lithium handling by ramipril was associated with a decrease in systolic blood pressure (-15% 3 h after ramipril administration) and sodium excretion (0-6 h after ramipril). The 24-h sodium excretion, however, tended to increase. Icatibant had no effect per se on renal function but attenuated the ramipril-induced decrease in renal lithium clearance (118+/-16 vs. 90+/-8 microl/min/100 g, n=12 and 24 respectively, P<0.05 one-tailed test) and systolic blood pressure. These results suggest that endogenous bradykinin contributes to the ramipril-associated alteration in renal lithium handling. Bradykinin B2 receptor-mediated vasodilation seems to be involved.

Acute effects of piretanide, a loop diuretic, on blood pressure (BP) and urinary output as well as long-term effects on serum electrolytes were compared in conscious spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) to that of hydrochlorothiazide (HCT) both given alone and in combination with the converting enzyme (CE) inhibitor ramipril. There were no acute or chronic falls in BP with low doses of either diuretic. Ramipril at a dose of 10 mg/kg normalized BP, which was accompanied by initial natriuresis and, over the long term, K+ preservation. Minimally effective doses of piretanide but not HCT given in combination with 1 mg/kg ramipril produced a greater fall in BP both acutely and chronically than ramipril alone at unaltered K+ preservation. To match this fall in BP with HCT, large doses were required, which caused hemoconcentration and impaired K+ preservation.

Electrocardiographic LVH was present in 793 (8.3%) HOPE study participants. Of these, 19.0% sustained a major CV event (MI, stroke or CV death), 15.6% died and 6.1% developed heart failure compared with 15.6%, 10.8% and 2.9% respectively of those without ECG-LVH (P = 0.0023; P < 0.0001 and P < 0.0001). In multivariate analysis ECG-LVH was an independent predictor of CV and all-cause death and of heart failure.

We evaluated the effects of maximizing RAS suppression on quantitative and qualitative proteinuria in ten patients with stable nonnephrotic proteinuria (2.55 +/- 0.94 g/24 hours) due to primary nonproliferative glomerulonephritis (NPGN), and normal values of creatinine clearance (103 +/- 17 mL/min). The study was divided in three consecutive phases: (1) four subsequent 1-month periods of ramipril at the dose of 2.5, 5.0, 10, and 20 mg/day; (2) 2 months of ramipril 20 mg/day + irbesartan 300 mg/day; and (3) 2 months of irbesartan 300 mg/day alone.

The modified intent-to-treat population consisted of 89 patients (45 test, 44 reference; 60 men, 29 women; mean age, 49.7 years; mean weight, 69.9 kg). At week 8, mean (SD) SiSBP and SiDBP were significantly decreased from baseline in both groups (test: from 145.0 [9.7]/98.1 [5.3] mm Hg to 132.2 [11.1]/ 91.8 [7.1] mm Hg [P < 0.001]; reference: from 145.1 [11.4]/98.0 [5.7] mm Hg to 134.0 [14.6]/92.5 [7.9] mm Hg [P < 0.001]). The changes in blood pressure at week 8 did not differ significantly between the test and reference groups or between the low- and highdose groups in a subgroup analysis. Blood pressure response rates at 8 weeks did not differ significantly between the groups receiving the test and reference formulations (SiDBP: 26.7% and 31.8%, respectively; SiSBP: 37.8% and 40.9%). In addition, there were no significant between-group differences in the change in PWV (-63.8 and -38.7 cm/sec), LVDF at rest or after exercise, or levels of BNP or hs-CRP. The incidence of AEs was 64.4% in the test formulation group and 68.2% in the reference group formulation (P = NS). The most common AE in both groups was cough (10/45 [22.2%] and 10/44 [22.7%]).

ACE (angiotensin-converting enzyme) 2 is expressed in the heart and kidney and metabolizes Ang (angiotensin) II to Ang-(1-7) a peptide that acts via the Ang-(1-7) or mas receptor. The aim of the present study was to assess the effect of Ang-(1-7) on blood pressure and cardiac remodelling in a rat model of renal mass ablation. Male SD (Sprague-Dawley) rats underwent STNx (subtotal nephrectomy) and were treated for 10 days with vehicle, the ACE inhibitor ramipril (oral 1 mg·kg(-1) of body weight·day(-1)) or Ang-(1-7) (subcutaneous 24 μg·kg(-1) of body weight·h(-1)) (all n = 15 per group). A control group (n = 10) of sham-operated rats were also studied. STNx rats were hypertensive (P<0.01) with renal impairment (P<0.001), cardiac hypertrophy (P<0.001) and fibrosis (P<0.05), and increased cardiac ACE (P<0.001) and ACE2 activity (P<0.05). Ramipril reduced blood pressure (P<0.01), improved cardiac hypertrophy (P<0.001) and inhibited cardiac ACE (P<0.001). By contrast, Ang-(1-7) infusion in STNx was associated with further increases in blood pressure (P<0.05), cardiac hypertrophy (P<0.05) and fibrosis (P<0.01). Ang-(1-7) infusion also increased cardiac ACE activity (P<0.001) and reduced cardiac ACE2 activity (P<0.05) compared with STNx-vehicle rats. Our results add to the increasing evidence that Ang-(1-7) may have deleterious cardiovascular effects in kidney failure and highlight the need for further in vivo studies of the ACE2/Ang-(1-7)/mas receptor axis in kidney disease.

Diabetes in spontaneously hypertensive rats is associated with cortical renal GLUT1 and GLUT2 overexpression. Our objective was to evaluate the effect of the angiotensin-converting enzyme blockade on cortical renal GLUT1 and GLUT2 expression, urinary albumin and urinary TGF-beta1. Streptozotocin, 50 mg/kg, or citrate buffer (N = 16) was administered as a single injection into the tail vein in adult spontaneously hypertensive rats (approximately 260 g). Thirty days later, these diabetic spontaneously hypertensive rats received ramipril by gavage: 0.01 mg x kg(-1) x day(-1) (D0.01, N = 14), 1 mg x kg(-1) x day(-1) (D1, N = 9) or water (D, N = 11) for 15 days. Albumin and TGF-beta1 (24-h urine), direct arterial pressure, renal tissue angiotensin-converting enzyme activity (fluorometric assay), and GLUT1 and GLUT2 protein levels (Western blot, renal cortex) were determined. Glycemia and glycosuria were higher (P < 0.05) in the diabetic rats compared with controls, but similar between the diabetic groups. Diabetes in spontaneously hypertensive rats lowered renal tissue angiotensin-converting enzyme activity (40%), which was reduced further when higher ramipril doses were used. Diabetes associated with hypertension raised GLUT1 by 28% (P < 0.0001) and GLUT2 by 76% (P = 0.01), and both doses of ramipril equally reduced cortical GLUT1 (D vs D1 and vs D0.01, P < or = 0.001). GLUT2 levels were reduced in D0.01 (P < 0.05 vs D). Diabetes increased urinary albumin and TGF-beta1 urinary excretion, but the 15-day ramipril treatment (with either dose) did not reduce them. In conclusion, ramipril is effective in lowering renal tissue angiotensin-converting enzyme activity, as well as blocking buy altace cortical GLUT1 overexpression, which may be beneficial in arresting the development of diabetic nephropathy.

Statins, such as simvastatin, and ACE inhibitors (ACEis), such as ramipril, are standard therapies for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. These types of drugs are commonly administered together. More recently, angiotensin II type 1 receptor (AT1R) antagonists, such as candesartan cilexetil (candesartan), have been used in the place of, or buy altace in combination with, ACEis. Here, we investigated the effects of simvastatin and ramipril single and combination therapy, and candesartan treatment on the lifespan of isocalorically fed, long-lived, B6C3F1 mice. Males were used for their relative endocrine simplicity and to minimize animal usage. The drugs were administered daily in food. The simvastatin and ramipril combination therapy significantly increased the mean and median lifespan by 9 %. In contrast, simvastatin, ramipril, or candesartan monotherapy was ineffective. All groups consumed the same number of calories. Simvastatin, alone or administered with ramipril, decreased body weight without changing caloric consumption, suggesting it may alter energy utilization in mice. Combination therapy elevated serum triglyceride and glucose levels, consistent with altered energy homeostasis. Few significant or consistent differences were found in mortality-associated pathologies among the groups. Simvastatin treatment did not reduce normal serum cholesterol or lipid levels in these mice, suggesting that the longevity effects may stem from the pleiotropic, non-cholesterol-related, effects of statins. Together, the results suggest that statins and ACEis together may enhance mouse longevity. Statins and ACE inhibitors are generally well-tolerated, and in combination, they have been shown to increase the lifespan of normotensive, normocholesterolemic humans.

We investigated the role of endogenous nitric oxide, kinins, and prostaglandins in the vasodepressor and renal excretory effects of the angiotensin II receptor antagonist losartan and the angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor ramipril administered for 1 week to spontaneously hypertensive rats. To this end, either losartan (10 mg/kg per day) or ramipril (2.5 mg/kg per day) was administered in drinking water with or without simultaneous administration of (1) the nitric oxide synthesis inhibitor Ng-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME, 6 mg/kg per day), (2) the cyclooxygenase inhibitor indomethacin (5 mg/kg per day), (3) the bradykinin B2 receptor antagonist Hoe 140 (0.5 mg/kg per day SC), or (4) L-NAME plus indomethacin. Both losartan and ramipril significantly reduced blood pressure as measured by the tail-cuff method. L-NAME increased blood pressure when administered solely or in combination with losartan. However, L-NAME attenuated the hypotensive effect of ramipril. Indomethacin did not affect blood pressure but it reduced the antihypertensive action of losartan and ramipril. Indomethacin administration did not potentiate the increase in blood pressure induced by L-NAME. However, the concurrent administration of both inhibitors almost totally blunted the vasodepressor action of Allegra Reviews ramipril. By contrast, losartan administration in the presence of L-NAME and indomethacin increased blood pressure to a level similar to that after losartan plus L-NAME. Hoe 140 did not modify either blood pressure or the hypotensive effects of losartan or ramipril. Increases in diuresis and water intake were observed during ramipril administration. Both effects were blunted only with the concurrent administration of L-NAME and indomethacin.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

This multicenter, prospective, randomized, double-blind, Phase III study was conducted at 5 centers in India. Indian patients aged 18 to 65 years with uncomplicated stage 2 essential hypertension (systolic/diastolic blood pressure [SBP/DBP], >160/>100 mm Hg) were enrolled. After a 2-week placebo run-in period, patients were randomly assigned to receive telmisartan 40 mg plus ramipril 5 mg (T + R) or losartan 50 mg plus ramipril 5 mg (L + R), PO (tablet) QD (before the morning meal) for 8 weeks. Supine blood pressure (BP) was measured at 0 (baseline) and 8 weeks of treatment. The primary end point was the mean reduction from baseline in BP. Responders were classified as patients who had a DBP <90 mm Hg at the end of 8 weeks of therapy. Tolerability was assessed using spontaneous Hytrin 1 Mg reports of adverse events (AEs) during the follow-up visits and laboratory analyses performed at week 8.

in the main study, ONTARGET, a double-blind, double-dummy, randomised controlled trial, the effects on cardiovascular outcomes Imdur 45 Mg of standard doses of an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor (ramipril), an angiotensin-receptor blocker (telmisartan), and a combination of the drugs were evaluated in 25 620 participants. In the parallel TRANSCEND trial, the effects of telmisartan were compared with those of placebo in 5926 participants intolerant to ACE inhibitors. Secondary outcomes included cognitive impairment (defined by investigator-reported diagnosis of dementia or significant cognitive dysfunction, or a score of ≤ 23 on the Mini-Mental State Examination [MMSE]) and cognitive decline (a decrease of ≤ 3 points on the MMSE from baseline during follow-up). Analyses were by intention to treat. We pooled data from these studies to identify baseline predictors of cognitive impairment and its frequency according to mean systolic blood pressure during follow-up. These studies were registered with, number NCT00153101.
