VPIs were single-molecular entities, with omapatrilat
as the most advanced of those that inhibited NEP and ACE.
and enalapril in patients with hypertension: the omapatrilat
cardiovascular treatment vs.
The administration of synthesized analogous of natriuretic peptides (as nesiritide and anaritide) or inhibitors of the catabolic enzyme 24.11 endopeptidase (candoxatril, omapatrilat
, neprilysin, and ecadotril) may be a useful tool to regulate the expression of key components of tubulointerstitial inflammation in the kidney and to control the oxygen supply or demand, under circumstances of sodium overload.
The investigational drug omapatrilat
(Vanlev), which combined inhibition of both ACE and NEP, appeared to be a powerhouse, beating such leading agents as losartan and amlodipine.
This analysis used data collected in a 25,000-patient study that compared the drugs omapatrilat
and enalapril in patients with hypertension.
A combined analysis of two Phase II studies comparing a new cardiovascular drug called omapatrilat
with an ACE inhibitor called lisinopril shows that the new treatment appears to be more effective in preventing death or hospitalization in patients diagnosed with congestive heart failure.

Comparison of the effects of omapatrilat
and lisinopril on circulating neurohormones and cytokines in patients with chronic heart failure.
BERLIN -- The investigational vasopeptidase inhibitor omapatrilat
is consistently more effective than ACE inhibitor therapy at lowering blood pressure in difficult-to-control hypertensive patients at high mortality risk as evidenced by prior major cardiovascular events or diabetes.
In the high-risk subgroup, omapatrilat
consistently lowered systolic blood pressure by 34 mm Hg more than enalapril, a difference maintained even when doses were titrated upward or other drugs were added, Dr.
, a promising drug for hypertension and heart failure that was on track for Food and Drug Administration approval this summer, has hit a regulatory snag.
-- The risk of serious angioedema persuaded the majority of a federal advisory panel to recommend against approving omapatrilat
, despite an antihypertensive effect that has been found in trials to exceed that of other available antihypertensive drugs.
