This includes angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, angiotensin receptor
blockers (sartans) and aldosterone antagonists.
The review included medications from the five main classes of antihypertensives, including angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, angiotensin receptor
blockers, beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers and thiazides.
The lowest risk for admission was in patients taking other groups of blood pressure drugs (ACE inhibitors, angiotensin receptor
The medications included in the study were aspirin, statins, beta blockers, and angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors/ angiotensin receptor
These include decreased blood volume; chronic kidney insufficiency; congestive heart failure; and taking other medications such as diuretics, blood pressure medicines called angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and angiotensin receptor
blockers (ARBs), and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
Many drugs have been tried to reduce progression of diabetic nephropathy and hypertension, but Angiotensin receptor
blockers (ARBs) have shown best result.
neprilysin inhibition compared with enalapril on the risk of clinical progression in surviving patients with heart failure.
Inhibition of the renin-angiotensin system and cardio-renal protection: focus on losartan and angiotensin receptor
Recent positive results in Novartis' PAR-ADIGM-HF trial have shown that the mechanism of action of their angiotensin receptor
neprilysin inhibitor can raise the level of endogenous natriuretic peptides by preventing their enzymatic breakdown in chronic heart failure patients.
CANADA -- Elderly patients taking angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors or angiotensin receptor
blockers (ARBs), along with the antibiotic sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim (TMP-SMX), had a higher risk of sudden death than when a different antibiotic was taken.
The topics include the neuroendocrinology of hydromineral homeostasis, diverse roles of angiotensin receptor
intracellular signaling pathways in the control of water and salt intake, catecholaminergical medullary pathways and cardiovascular response to expanded circulating volume and increased osmolarity, brain serotonergic receptors and the control of fluid intake and cardiovascular function in rats, and sodium appetite sensitization.
ATLANTA--The combined use of an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor and an angiotensin receptor
blocker was associated with an increased risk of hyperkalemia and acute kidney injury in patients with diabetic nephropathy in a randomized, controlled trial that was halted early because of these safety concerns.
