Betaxolol is a type of lipophilic and a selective [beta]1 receptor blocker used in the treatment of hypertension, arrhythmias, coronary heart disease, glaucoma, and is also used to reduce non-fatal cardiac events in patients with heart failure.
[19] In our study, other P-blockers used in monotherapy to treat POAG were betaxolol (10.41%) and levobunolol (2.08%); betaxolol was prescribed less frequently because it being a selective [[beta].sub.1]-blocker is less effective and levobunolol though comparable to timolol is expensive.
Effect of betaxolol on the hemodynamic, gas exchange, and cardiac output response to exercise in chronic atrial fibrillation.
The software returned exact matches to five known [beta]blockers (including metoprolol and betaxolol) with greater than 40 new proposed analogs.
The antiglaucoma beta blockers include betaxolol (Betoptic), carteolol (Ocupress), levobetaxolol (Betaxon), levobunolol (Betagan), metipranolol (Optipranolol) and timolol (Betimol, Timoptic, Istalol).
(11) Beta blockers Acebutolol (Sectral), atenolol Decreases the force (Tenormin), betaxolol of the heart's (Kerlone), metoprolol contraction and its (Lopressor), atenolol overall heart rate, (Tenormin), bisoprolol (Concor) thus reducing the and pindolol (Visken) heart's demand for oxygen.
The efficacy of poly acryl cyanoacrylate, poly-?-caprolactone and poly ethylene glycol for betaxolol delivery was compared and was found that poly-acaprolactone nanoparticles yielded highest pharmacological activity and the factor thought to be responsible for this good performance was agglomeration of the particles.
[beta]-Blockers infrequently prescribed for hypertension, and not listed here, include acebutolol, betaxolol, nadolol, penbutolol, pindolol, and timolol.
For example, the [Beta]-1 receptor antagonist betaxolol is an effective ocular hypotensive agent, yet the ciliary and trabecular receptors are predominantly of the [Beta]-2 subclass [11].
On average, the study participants' vision deteriorated, with the group treated with drug betaxolol and argon laser trabeculoplasty recording a smaller visual change, on average, compared to the untreated patients.
Betaxolol, a selective [[beta].sub.1]-adenoceptor blocker is one of the most commonly used class of antiglaucoma agent because of its ability to preserve visual field better.
