Twelve months post therapy, number of patients on sinus rhythm was significantly higher (68.7% vs. 41.9%, P<0.05) and left atrium diameter (LAD) was significantly smaller [(48.6 +/- 4.6) mm vs. (51.5 +/- 4.2) mm, P<0.05] in group AI than those in group A. LAD (OR 1.242) and use of irbesartan (OR 0.226) are associated with the AF recurrence.

Large and small arteries are remodelled in hypertension - their structure, function and mechanics are altered. These changes contribute to elevated blood pressure and to the complications of hypertension. The present paper concentrates on small (resistance) artery changes in hypertension. In hypertension, these vessels exhibit a form of remodelling known as 'eutrophic' remodelling, in which smooth muscle cells are restructured around a smaller lumen, without true hypertrophy, particularly in milder forms of hypertension. Changes in these small arteries are the first manifestation of target organ damage in patients with hypertension. In more severe forms of hypertension and in secondary hypertension, hypertrophic remodelling has been reported. Stiffness of the vessel wall may be decreased initially; later, as hypertension becomes more severe, the wall of resistance vessels may become stiffer. Endothelial dysfunction occurs in a percentage of patients, similar to the prevalence of left ventricular hypertrophy. Interruption of the renin-angiotensin system may correct many of these abnormalities. The present report investigated the effects of angiotensin type 1 (AT1) receptor antagonists on small arteries of hypertensive patients compared with the beta-blocker atenolol in different studies. Beta-blocker treatment did not modify either the structure or the function of small arteries in contrast to the AT1 antagonist losartan in a double-blind, randomized, one-year study. Patients previously treated with atenolol to lower blood pressure, but whose small artery structure and function did not improve, were examined. These hypertensive patients were switched to the AT1 antagonist irbesartan for one year. Gluteal subcutaneous biopsies showed that the structure and endothelial function of small arteries that had remained altered by atenolol treatment were corrected by irbesartan treatment, although blood pressure control with irbesartan was identical to that previously achieved with atenolol. Improved outcomes in clinical trials using angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and AT1 receptor antagonists may be a result of the vascular protective effects offered by these agents.

Sartans are very effective drugs for treatment of hypertension, heart failure, and other cardiovascular disorders. They antagonize the effects of angiotensin II at the AT(1) receptor and display p.o. bioavailability rates of 13 to 80%. Because some sartans sterically resemble dipeptide derivatives, we investigated whether they are transported by peptide transporters. We first assessed the effects of sartans on [(14)C]glycylsarcosine uptake into Caco-2 cells expressing H(+)/peptide transporter (PEPT) 1 and into SKPT cells expressing PEPT2. Losartan, irbesartan, valsartan, and eprosartan inhibited [glycine-1-(14)C]glycylsarcosine ([(14)C]Gly-Sar) uptake into Caco-2 cells in a competitive manner with K(i) values of 24, 230, 390, and >1000 microM. Losartan and valsartan also strongly inhibited the total transepithelial flux of [(14)C]Gly-Sar across Caco-2 cell monolayers. In SKPT cells, [(14)C]Gly-Sar uptake was inhibited with K(i) values of 2.2 microM (losartan), 65 microM (irbesartan), 260 microM (valsartan), and 490 microM (eprosartan). We determined by the two-electrode voltage-clamp technique whether the compounds elicited transport currents by PEPT1 or PEPT2 when expressed in Xenopus laevis oocytes. No currents were observed for any of the sartans, but the compounds strongly and reversibly inhibited peptide-induced currents. Uptake of valsartan, losartan, and cefadroxil was quantified in HeLa cells after heterologous expression of human PEPT1 (hPEPT1). In contrast to cefadroxil, no PEPT1-specific uptake of valsartan and losartan was found. We conclude that the sartans tested in this study display high-affinity interaction with PEPTs but are not transported themselves. However, they strongly inhibit hPEPT1-mediated uptake of dipeptides and cefadroxil.

Mean follow-up was 2.8 years; 19.5% of patients developed ESRD, approximately 2.5 times the incidence of cardiovascular death and 1.5 times the incidence of all-cause mortality. ESRD was more common than cardiovascular death in all subgroups analyzed with the exception of participants with low levels of albuminuria (albumin excretion <1.0 g/g) and well-preserved levels of kidney function (estimated glomerular filtration rate >45 mL/min/1.73 m(2)) at baseline.

Adding clopidogrel to aspirin therapy resulted in a modest net benefit among patients with AF for whom warfarin was unsuitable. The benefit would probably be clinically relevant for some patients, but estimates could not exclude the possibility of either no benefit or very small harm in this population.

The safety, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of single and multiple doses of the angiotensin II (AII) AT1 blocker irbesartan were assessed in healthy subjects. In this single-center, placebo-controlled, double-blind within dose group, sequential, dose-ascending study, 48 men were randomized to receive irbesartan at doses of 150 mg, 300 mg, 600 mg, or 900 mg daily. Subjects received a single dose of irbesartan (n = 9 per group) or placebo (n = 3 per group), followed by 3 days of placebo, and then multiple doses of irbesartan or placebo once daily for 7 days. The values for plasma area under the concentration-time curve (AUC) of irbesartan were dose proportional up to 600 mg. There were no significant differences between the dose groups in time to maximum concentration (tmax) or half-life (t1/2) after single and multiple doses. After multiple doses, urinary recovery was significantly lower in the 600-mg and 900-mg dose groups compared with the 150-mg and 300-mg dose groups. Steady-state concentrations of irbesartan were achieved within 3 days of administration with no clinically important accumulation. Irbesartan produced dose-dependent increases in plasma renin activity and AII levels. Irbesartan was well tolerated at doses from 150 mg to 900 mg daily; a maximally tolerated dose was not reached. Modest decreases in blood pressure without orthostatic symptoms were observed at irbesartan doses of 300 mg or higher. These results demonstrated the dose-proportionality of irbesartan 150 mg to 600 mg and indicated that doses up to 900 mg daily were well tolerated.

Cyclodextrins (CDs) are carrier molecules produced by cyclization of α-1,4-glucans by Cyclodextrin Glycosyl Transferase (CGTase). These torus shaped molecules have hydrophobic cavity and hydrophilic shell making them useful in pharmaceutical, food, textile, pesticide and cosmetic industries. In this study, culture conditions for the production of CGTase by organism belonging to Arthrobacter genus obtained from a paddy field soil were optimized by single parameter mode. Soluble starch, yeast extract and magnesium sulphate played an important role in CGTase production. Percentage increase in CGTase yield under optimized conditions was 396.77%. The enzyme precipitated by 60% ammonium sulphate was purified using DEAE-sepharose. The molecular weight of the purified protein as determined by SDS-PAGE was 75 kDa. Purified CGTase was thermostable and stable over a wide pH range. Dissolution studies on β -cyclodextrin-Irbesartan complex revealed that β -CDs formed were useful in preparing immediate release oral dosage forms.

8714 general practitioners included 31,793 type 2 diabetics aged at least 18 years in an open observational study. After inclusion in to the study the patients received irbesartan 300 mg as monotherapy or in combination with hydrochlorothiazide 12.5 mg (HCTZ). Main outcome measures for efficacy were the reduction of systolic (SBP) and diastolic (DBP) blood pressures, reduction of pulse pressure, and blood pressure responder (reduction in DBP > or = 10 mmHg or diastolic < 90 mmHg), diastolic normalization (DBP < 90 mmHg) and overall normalization rates (SBP < 140 mmHg and DBP < 90 mmHg) after 3 months. Further outcome measures included the reduction of microalbuminuria or proteinuria, and adverse events (AEs) as a measure of tolerability.

Hypertension treatment guidelines recommend initiating 2-drug therapy whenever blood pressure (BP) is > or =20 mm Hg systolic or > or =10 mm Hg diastolic above goal. This post hoc pooled analysis of 2 multicenter, randomized, double-blind, active-controlled forced-titration studies in 1235 patients with moderate and severe hypertension examined how baseline BP levels relate to the need for combination therapy by comparing the antihypertensive efficacy and tolerability of once-daily fixed-dose irbesartan/hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) 300/25 mg compared with irbesartan 300-mg or HCTZ 25-mg monotherapies. In study 1, patients with severe hypertension (seated diastolic BP [SeDBP] > or =110 mm Hg) were treated for 7 weeks with irbesartan or irbesartan/HCTZ combination therapy, with forced-titration after week 1. In study 2, patients with moderate hypertension (seated systolic BP [SeSBP] 160-180 mm Hg or SeDBP 100-110 mm Hg) were treated for 12 weeks with irbesartan/HCTZ, irbesartan monotherapy, or HCTZ monotherapy, with forced-titration after week 2. The relationship between baseline BP and the likelihood of achieving BP goals (SeSBP <140 mm Hg or SeDBP <90 mm Hg; SeSBP <130 mm Hg or SeDBP <80 mm Hg) as well as the antihypertensive response was evaluated at week 7/8. The need for combination therapy increased with increasing baseline BP and lower BP goals across the range of BP levels studied, with a comparable adverse effect profile to monotherapy. These results suggest that the likelihood of achieving an early BP goal for a given BP severity should be considered when choosing initial combination therapy vs monotherapy.

These results indicate that torasemide, but not furosemide, inhibits Ang II-induced protein synthesis in VSMCs from SHR. Thus, it is suggested that the capacity of torasemide to block this trophic action of Ang II in rat VSMCs is not mediated by inhibition of the Na(+), K(+), 2Cl(-) co-transport mechanism.

A total of 733 patients with comorbid hypertension and hypercholesterolemia were screened for this study; 230 eligible patients were randomized to treatment. The mean age of patients was 58.9 (8.5) years, and their mean body mass index was 25.8 (3.2) kg/m(2). More than two thirds (70.9%) of the study patients were male. Mean LDL-C and sitting DBP levels at baseline were 149.54 (29.19) mg/dL and 92.32 (6.03) mm Hg, respectively. Percent reductions in LDL-C after 8 weeks were 46.74% (2.06%) in the IRB300 + ATO40 group and 48.98% (2.12%) in the IRB300 + ATO80 group; these values were 47.13% (3.21%) and 48.30% (2.98%) in the ATO40 and ATO80 comparator groups. Similarly, a reduction in sitting DBP after 8 weeks was -8.50 (1.06) mm Hg in the IRB300 + ATO40 group and 10.66 (1.08) mm Hg in the IRB300 + ATO80 group compared with 8.40 (1.65) mm Hg in the IRB300 group. The incidence rate for treatment-emergent adverse events was 22.27% and was similar between the monotherapy and combination groups.

Diabetic nephropathy is a leading cause of renal failure requiring replacement therapy. Diabetic nephropathy is typically characterized by persistent microalbuminuria progressing to nephrotic syndrome, a progressive decline in glomerular filtration rate, and hypertension. Diabetic nephropathy prevention strategies may involve early angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor treatment and the control of diabetes to reduce glomerular hypertension and hyperfiltration. Treatment strategies include the use of ACE inhibitors or angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs), and cholesterol-lowering agents. Early intervention is key to the prevention of more severe renal outcomes. Although intensive and early control of blood pressure (BP) is key to renoprotection, the class of antihypertensive has an important bearing on outcome. There is evidence for the efficacy of ARBs in preventing the progression from microalbuminuria to overt nephropathy (urine protein excretion >500 mg/day) from the IRbesartan in patients with diabetes and MicroAlbuminuria (IRMA 2) Study using irbesartan and the INcideNt to OVert: Angiotensin II receptor blocker, Telmisartan, Investigation On type 2 diabetic Nephropathy (INNOVATION) Study using telmisartan. For the management of overt nephropathy, the findings of the Reduction of Endpoints in NIDDM with the Angiotensin II Antagonist Losartan (RENAAL) Study and the Irbesartan in Diabetic Nephropathy Trial (IDNT) demonstrate that losartan and irbesartan, respectively, reduce the time to doubling of serum creatinine levels and development of end-stage renal disease.

In this work, an SPE-HPLC method coupled to photodiode array detection was validated in human urine matrix, in order to monitor four antihypertensive angiotensin II receptor antagonist drugs in patients under cardiovascular treatment. For that purpose, experimental design was used. Quantitation was accomplished by the internal standard method. The obtained LOQs were 95, 113, 125, and 85 ng/mL for eprosartan, telmisartan, irbesartan, and valsartan, respectively. The intraday and interday precision and accuracy at four concentration levels in the working range (LOQ-15 microg/mL) were always lower than 11% RSD and 8% relative error. The urine samples proved to be stable during 4 h at room temperature, after three thaw-freeze cycles, and for 2 months at -20 degrees C. No interferences from other endogenous compounds or co-administered drugs were found. The method has been successfully applied to monitor the renal elimination of eprosartan and valsartan during 24 h.

ApoE-/- female mice (C57BL/6 background; Charles-River, France) were divided into 2 groups (irbesartan treated [TG] or not treated [NTG]) and started on a high-fat diet (Harlan TD88137 Western Diet, 21% fat, 0.2% cholesterol). Animals underwent magnetic resonance examinations on a 7-T scanner at baseline and at 14 and 28 weeks of treatment. At each time point, 2 MRI sessions were performed, before and 48 hours after administration of an iron oxide agent (P904; Guerbet, France) or magnetically labeled macrophages (MФΦ). At the end of the follow-up, blood samples were taken for plasma lipid dosing and aorta samples for histology. The study was approved by the animal experimentation ethic committee of our institution.Vessel wall area measurements were performed on high-resolution spin echo transverse images. Multiecho gradient echo images acquired with the same geometry were used to calculate T2* maps of the vessel wall using a pixel-by-pixel monoexponential fit. Irbesartan effect on vessel wall area over time was assessed using a factorial analysis of variance test. T2* values of the vessel wall at pre- and post-ultrasmall superparamagnetic iron oxide (USPIO) administration were analyzed with a 1-way analysis of variance test with Bonferroni post hoc.

Irbesartan (IRB) and hydrochlorothiazide (HCT) are angiotensin-II receptor antagonist and thiazide-class diuretic compounds, respectively, which are in use in the treatment of hypertension. A novel dilute-and-shoot HPLC assay method for simultaneous quantification of IRB and HCT in fixed-dose combination tablets and urine samples was described. The separation of IRB, HCT and agomelatine (internal standard) was carried out using a second generation C18-bonded monolithic silica column (Chromolith(®) High Resolution RP-18e, 100×4.6mm, Merck KGaA), utilizing both mobile phase and flow rate gradient elution programs. The analytes were detected at 230 nm wavelength using photodiode array detector within 24 minutes with high resolution, observing about 50 percent more peak capacity when using second generation C18-bonded monolithic silica column. Urine samples were introduced into the system effortlessly, with only filtration and subsequent dilution. Validation studies were performed according to the official recommendations of USP and ICH, and the developed method was successfully applied to pharmaceutical tablets and urine samples.

Drugs that either inhibit prostaglandin synthesis or antagonise angiotensin II effects are likely to impair renal function, especially in patients with an activated renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. Of the former, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are widely used, and newer agents with cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2) specific inhibition may have fewer renal side effects compared to non-selective NSAIDs. We therefore investigated whether combination of a COX-2 inhibitor with an angiotensin II subtype 1 (AT1) receptor blocker is safe with regard to preservation of normal renal function in a state of slight volume contraction.

In the cross-sectional study, hypertensive type 2 diabetic patients who received RAS inhibitor presented lower uVEGF levels than those who did not receive the RAS inhibitor. Statistical analysis indicated that uVEGF level was independently correlated with the AER. In the longitudinal study involving the 6-month irbesartan treatment, we demonstrated that uVEGF levels decreased significantly in patients who achieved a 50% AER reduction (remission group, n=32). In contrast, uVEGF levels remained unchanged in patients who did not exhibit a 50% AER reduction (nonremission group, n=10). Furthermore, the change in uVEGF was significantly correlated with the change in AER (r=0.65, P<0.01) before and after 6 months of irbesartan treatment. This result held true even after we had adjusted for the decrease in average blood pressure.

The plasma profiles for irbesartan and hydrochlorothiazide followed the two-compartment model after a single dose. The PK parameters of irbesartan were not affected by hydrochlorothiazide; however irbesartan decreased the hydrochlorothiazide AUC by 25% and increased its clearance by 25%. There were no significant changes in heart rate after each drug alone or in combination. Irbesartan plus hydrochlorothiazide had a greater blood pressure lowering effect compared with irbesartan alone, despite the unchanged irbesartan PK. The relationship between irbesartan plasma concentration and its effects plotted in chronological order showed anticlockwise hysteresis. The PD parameter estimates for the effect of irbesartan on systolic blood pressure, when administered with hydrochlorothiazide were significantly different from those when irbesartan was administered alone. This was manifested by a 25% increase in Emax , and a 40% decrease in EC50 , suggesting a synergistic blood pressure lowering effect for the combination. While parameter estimates for the effect of irbesartan on diastolic blood pressure were changed by hydrochlorothiazide, the differences were only significant for EC50 .

The median reductions in UAE and SBP in the population were -18% and -11 mmHg, respectively. In irbesartan-treated patients, 85 (24.4%) had a robust (>median) reduction in UAE but not in SBP (discordant SBP response) and 67 (19.3%) had a robust (>median) reduction in SBP but not in UAE (discordant UAE response). The degree of reduction in UAE was independently associated with the rate of eGFR decline (P = 0.0037). SBP showed a similar trend (P = 0.087). The relation between a larger UAE reduction and a slower rate of renal function decline was present in both cohorts with a SBP change above and below the median.

This study examined whether the greater anti-hypertensive efficacy of irbesartan monotherapy over losartan monotherapy extends to the respective fixed-dose combinations with hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) in patients with mild-to-moderate hypertension. Patients were treated with either irbesartan 150 mg/HCTZ 12.5 mg or losartan 50 mg/HCTZ 12.5 mg over a 4-week period. Twenty-four hour daytime and night-time mean blood pressure (BP), BP load and duration buy avapro of action were assessed using ambulatory BP monitoring. Both treatment regimens significantly reduced BP from baseline for all efficacy variables assessed. A significant difference was noted in adjusted mean changes from baseline in 24-h ambulatory diastolic BP with irbesartan/HCTZ versus losartan/HCTZ. Reduction in diastolic load was significantly greater with irbesartan/HCTZ than with losartan/HCTZ as was mean ambulatory systolic BP during the last 4 h of the dosing interval. Both regimens were well tolerated, with no significant differences in terms of adverse event profile observed. Irbesartan 150 mg/HCTZ 12.5 mg resulted in greater reductions in ambulatory BP than losartan 50 mg/HCTZ 12.5 mg.

Six weeks after surgery, rats with ascending aortic stenosis were randomized to receive either the AT1-receptor blocker BMS-186295 50 (n = 49), amlodipine 2.5 (n = 48) as a positive control for systemic vasodilation, or no drug (n = 48) and compared with sham-operated rats (n = 39). Drug treatment was continued for 15 weeks. Left ventricular ACE mRNA levels were measured by ribonuclease protection assay. The left ventricular/body weight ratio was increased 43% in hearts from rats with untreated left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) versus control hearts (P < .05). However, there was no difference in either the left ventricular/body weight ratio (2.78 +/- 0.08 versus 2.81 +/- 0.20 mg/g; P = NS) or myocyte cross-sectional area in the AT1-blocker-treated versus untreated LVH hearts. Amlodipine also showed no effect on regression of hypertrophy. In vivo left ventricular systolic pressure was significantly higher in untreated LVH versus sham-operated rats (193 +/- 8 versus 118 +/- 4 mm Hg; P < .05), and there was a similar severe elevation of left ventricular systolic pressure in the AT1-blocker- and amlodipine-treated LVH groups (189 +/- 9 and 188 +/- 16 mm Hg; P = NS versus untreated LVH). In vivo left ventricular end-diastolic pressure was higher in the untreated LVH than in the sham-operated rats (14.8 +/- 2.3 versus 7.0 +/- 0.5 mm Hg; P < .05). Left ventricular end-diastolic pressure was lower in the AT1-blocker-treated (11.0 +/- 1.7 mm Hg) and amlodipine-treated rats (11.5 +/- 1.8 mm Hg) and was similar to left ventricular end-diastolic buy avapro pressure in the sham-operated rats (P = NS). Left ventricular ACE mRNA levels were elevated in untreated LVH rats but were normalized in both the AT1-blocker-treated rats and amlodipine-treated rats.

The earlier Collaborative Study Group (CGS) trial demonstrated that the angiotensin-converting buy avapro enzyme (ACE) inhibitor captopril lowered BP and provided renal protection in type 1 diabetic kidney disease beyond that attributable to the BP change. The Irbesartan Diabetic Nephropathy Trial (IDNT) studied the effect of the angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) irbesartan on the reduction of BP, urinary protein excretion, and progression to DN. The study end points in the IDNT demonstrated that ARB therapy reduced BP, reduced urinary protein excretion, and provided renal protection against progression to DN. The Reduction of Endpoints in NIDDM With the Angiotensin II Antagonist Losartan (RENAAL) trial demonstrated that the ARB losartan, when combined with conventional antihypertensive agents, decreased urinary protein excretion by 35%. Losartan both lowered BP and provided renal protection against DN. In a study comparing an ACE inhibitor (trandolapril), an ARB (losartan), and a combination of the 2 agents (trandolapril and losartan), data showed that all 3 arms reduced BP to the same degree. However, a combination of the ARB plus the ACE inhibitor produced both a significant reduction in urinary protein excretion beyond that seen with either agent alone and a significantly greater protection against progression to doubling of serum creatinine or ESRD. The reduction in urinary protein excretion and renal progression seen with individual agents were not statistically different from each other.

Early detection is critical in prevention and treatment of kidney disease. However currently clinical laboratory and histopathological tests do not provide region-specific and accurate biomarkers for early detection of kidney disease. The present study was conducted to identify sensitive biomarkers for early detection and progression of tubulo-interstitial nephropathy in aristolochic acid I-induced rats at weeks 4, 8 and 12. Biomarkers were validated using aristolochic acid nephropathy (AAN) rats at week 24, adenine-induced chronic kidney disease (CKD) rats and CKD patients. Compared with control rats, AAN rats showed anemia, increased serum urea and creatinine, progressive renal interstitial fibrosis, activation of nuclear factor-kappa B, and up-regulation of pro-inflammatory, pro-oxidant, and pro-fibrotic proteins at weeks 8 and 12. However, no significant difference was found at week 4. Metabolomics identified 12-ketodeoxycholic acid, taurochenodesoxycholic acid, LPC(15:0) and docosahexaenoic acid as biomarkers for early detection of tubulo-interstitial nephropathy. With prolonging aristolochic acid I exposure, LPE(20:2), cholic acid, chenodeoxycholic acid buy avapro and LPC(17:0) were identified as biomarkers for progression from early to advanced AAN and lysoPE(22:5), indoxyl sulfate, uric acid and creatinine as biomarkers of advanced AAN. These biomarkers were reversed by treatment of irbesartan and ergone in AAN rats at week 24 and adenine-induced CKD rats. In addition, these biomarkers were also reversed by irbesartan treatment in CKD patients.

Hypertensive left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy is associated with a substantial risk for malignant arrhythmias and sudden death. According to recent results, antihypertensive therapy with the angiotensin II type 1 receptor blocker irbesartan reverses both structural and electrical remodelling. However, the relation between the LV geometric pattern (concentric vs eccentric) and electrical reverse remodelling has not been characterized, neither has the relation between repolarization and rate (QT/RR and JT/RR relation), which presumably reflects the propensity for bradycardia-dependent ventricular arrhythmia. In this study, repeat echocardiographic and electrocardiographic measurements were performed in hypertensive patients with LV hypertrophy, randomized to double-blind therapy with irbesartan (n = 44) or the beta(1)-adrenoceptor blocker atenolol (n = 48) for 48 weeks; 53 patients had concentric and 39 eccentric LV hypertrophy. In addition, 37 matched hypertensive subjects without LV hypertrophy and no current therapy served as controls. Irbesartan induced structural and electrophysiological reverse remodelling, independent of LV geometry. In contrast, atenolol had similar beneficial effect only in patients with concentric LV hypertrophy, while the response in those with eccentric hypertrophy was unfavourable with both prolonged repolarization time and an increased QT/RR slope (suggesting reverse-use dependence). In conclusion, there is a significant geometry-related difference buy avapro in the reverse remodelling processes induced by irbesartan and atenolol. Echocardiographic characterization of the geometry in hypertension-induced LV hypertrophy might become an important step in the selection of optimal antihypertensive therapy.

A simple and robust, gradient HPLC method was developed for determination of azide ppm (μgg(-1)) levels in different sartans (irbesartan, candesartan, valsartan). The sartan was dissolved in 0.1M NaOH. Then pH was adjusted to 4.5 with 20% H3PO4 followed by dilution with water. Precipitated API was removed by filtration using 0.45μm membrane PVDF (Polyvinylidene Fluoride) membrane filter, and supernatant was analyzed by gradient elution HPLC at room temperature with Hydro RP HPLC 250×4.6mm, 4μm column and UV detection at 205nm. The best sensitivity was achieved by UV detection cell with 60mm optical path length: LOD 0.17μgg(-1) and LOQ 0.84μgg(-1) for azide. The USP requirement for maximum azide content in irbesartan is 10μgg(-1). The analytical method was validated as per International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) guidelines with respect to system precision, intraday precision (repeatability), intermediate precision (ruggedness), linearity, quantitation limit, detection limit, accuracy, standard and sample solution stability, robustness and selectivity/specificity. The method was linear in the range from LOQ (0.84μgg(-1)) to 101μgg(-1) of azide. The correlation coefficient was 0.9999 and bias on y-axis for 84μgg(-1) test concentration was 0.33%. The accuracy of the method was established based on the recovery Aciphex Daily Dosage obtained between 94.0% and 103.0% for azide. Standard and sample solutions were stable for at least 48h at room temperature and in refrigerator. The method was found to be robust for variation in column temperature (±5°C) and mobile phase flow rate (±0.2mLmin(-1)) and selective for anions such as bromide, nitrate, nitrite, formate and acetate.

A chemometric approach was applied for the optimization of the extraction and separation of the antihypertensive drug eprosartan from human plasma samples. MultiSimplex program was used to optimize the HPLC-UV method due to the number of experimental and response variables to be studied. The measured responses were the corrected area, the separation of eprosartan chromatographic peak from plasma interferences peaks and the retention time of the analyte. The use of an Atlantis dC18, 100mmx3.9mm i.d. chromatographic column with a 0.026% trifluoroacetic acid (TFA) in the organic phase and 0.031% TFA in the aqueous phase, an initial composition of 80% aqueous phase in the mobile phase, a stepness of acetonitrile of 3% during the gradient elution mode with a flow rate of 1.25mL/min and a column temperature of 35+/-0.2 degrees C allowed the separation of eprosartan and irbesartan used as internal standard from plasma endogenous compounds. In the solid phase extraction procedure, experimental design was used in order to achieve a maximum recovery percentage. Firstly, the significant variables were chosen by way of fractional factorial design; then, a central composite design was run to obtain the more adequate values of the significant variables. Thus, the extraction procedure for spiked human plasma Benicar Generic Release samples was carried out using C8 cartridges, phosphate buffer pH 2 as conditioning agent, a drying step of 10min, a washing step with methanol-phosphate buffer (20:80, v/v) and methanol as eluent liquid. The SPE-HPLC-UV developed method allowed the separation and quantitation of eprosartan from human plasma samples with an adequate resolution and a total analysis time of 1h.

Renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) hyperactivity is implicated in the development of hypertension and progressive damage in target organs. Chronic inhibition of the RAAS or use of thiazide-type diuretics may trigger an aldoster-one escape. The aim of this study was to assess this phenomenon in hypertensive patients treated with thiazide-type diuretics (hydrochlorothiazide [HCTZ]) or single or double blockade of the RAAS (irbesartan [IRBE], quinapril [QUIN], and IRBE+QUIN). Blood pressure levels were obtained by 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring. Plasma renin activity and aldosterone levels were determined by immunoradiometric assay. Blood pressure level was normalized in the 4 treatment groups; the HCTZ and IRBE+QUIN groups showed an increased plasma aldosterone level after 12 weeks (9.1+/-2.2 to 14.1+/-1.4 and 6.9+/-1.9 to 12.9+/-2.3 ng/dL, respectively; P<.05), whereas plasma renin activity was increased only in the HCTZ group (0.9+/-0.2-1.7+/-0.2 ng/mL/h; P<.05). The increase in plasma aldosterone level after 12 weeks of HCTZ and IRBE+QUIN therapy suggests early aldosterone escape.

The metabolism of irbesartan, a highly selective and potent nonpeptide angiotensin II receptor antagonist, has been investigated in humans. An aliquot of pooled urine from healthy subjects given a 50-mg oral dose of [14C]irbesartan was added as a tracer to urine from healthy subjects that received multiple, 900-mg nonradiolabeled doses of irbesartan. Urinary metabolites were isolated, and structures were elucidated by mass spectroscopy, proton NMR, and high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) retention times. Irbesartan and the following eight metabolites were identified in human urine: (1) a tetrazole N2-beta-glucuronide conjugate of irbesartan, (2) a monohydroxylated metabolite resulting from omega-1 oxidation of the butyl side chain, (3, 4) two different monohydroxylated metabolites resulting from oxidation of the spirocyclopentane ring, (5) a diol resulting from omega-1 oxidation of the butyl side chain and oxidation of the spirocyclopentane ring, (6) a keto metabolite resulting from further oxidation of the omega-1 monohydroxy metabolite, (7) a keto-alcohol resulting from further oxidation of the omega-1 hydroxyl of the diol, and (8) a carboxylic acid metabolite resulting from oxidation of the terminal methyl group of the butyl side chain. Biotransformation profiles of pooled urine, feces, and plasma samples from healthy male volunteers given doses of [14C]irbesartan were determined by HPLC. The predominant drug-related component in plasma was irbesartan (76-88% of the plasma radioactivity). None of the metabolites exceeded 9% of the plasma radioactivity. Radioactivity in urine accounted for about 20% of the radiolabeled dose. In urine, irbesartan and its glucuronide each accounted for about 5 to 10% of the urinary radioactivity. The predominant metabolite in urine was the omega-1 hydroxylated metabolite, which constituted about 25% of the urinary radioactivity. In feces, irbesartan was the predominant drug-related component (about 30% of the radioactivity), and the primary metabolites were monohydroxylated metabolites and the carboxylic acid metabolite. Irbesartan and these identified metabolites constituted 90% of the recovered urinary and fecal radioactivity from human subjects given oral doses of [14C]irbesartan.

Meanwhile irbesartan perfusion did not modify neither mean arterial pressure (MAP) nor heart rate or noradrenaline hypothalamic levels in the C group, its highest dose diminished MAP (DeltaMAP: F: - 16.3+/-1 mm Hg, p<0.05) and noradrenaline levels (% of basal levels: 58+/-7%, p<0.05) in the F group, without affecting heart rate. Intrahypothalamic perfusion of metoprolol diminished MAP only in the F group (DeltaMAP: F: -12.1+/-1.1 mm Hg, p<0.05), but did not modify heart rate in both groups. On the other hand, it diminished noradrenaline hypothalamic levels in C (% of basal levels: 53+/-6%, p<0.05) but not in the F group. The pressor response to angiotensin II microinjection was increased in F rats (DeltaMAP: F: 13.3+/-1.5 mm Hg vs. C: 6.9+/-1.8 mm Hg; p<0.05). Previous administration of metoprolol markedly abolished this increment.

The metabolic syndrome is a cluster of cardiovascular risk factors leading to an increased risk for the subsequent development of diabetes and cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Blocking the renin-angiotensin system has been shown to prevent cardiovascular disease and delay the onset of diabetes. Irbesartan is an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) which has been shown to possess peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARgamma) activating properties, and to have a favorable metabolic profile. Current discussion is whether the addition of small doses of hydrochlorothiazide changes this profile. Therefore the efficacy, safety and metabolic profile of Irbesartan either as monotherapy or in combination therapy was assessed in patients with the metabolic syndrome in a large observational cohort in primary care.
