Aldosterone, not estradiol, is the physiological agonist for rapid increases in cAMP in vascular smooth muscle cells. (1/759)

BACKGROUND: Steroid-induced gene regulation in the endocrine tissues and vascular wall is achieved through the interaction of specific receptor proteins and promoters of target genes. In addition to these delayed steroid actions, rapid effects of steroids have been reported in various tissues that were clearly incompatible with the classic theory of genomic steroid action. METHODS AND RESULTS: Because high doses of 17beta-estradiol have been shown to modulate intracellular cAMP levels in vascular smooth muscle cells, steroid-induced stimulation of adenylate cyclase stimulation and phosphorylation of cAMP response element binding protein was investigated in porcine coronary artery vascular smooth muscle cells. Aldosterone induces a approximately 1.5- to 2.5-fold increase in intracellular cAMP levels (EC50 approximately 0.01 to 0.1 nmol/L) within 1 minute, whereas 17beta-estradiol and hydrocortisone act only at supraphysiological concentrations (10 micromol/L). Aldosterone-induced changes in intracellular cAMP are calcium dependent; they are not blocked by inhibitors of mineralocorticoid receptors, transcription, or protein synthesis. In addition, aldosterone induces a time-dependent phosphorylation of cAMP response element binding protein with potential transcriptional importance. CONCLUSIONS: A nongenomic modulation of vascular smooth muscle cells by aldosterone is consistent with the data that aldosterone, not estrogen, is the physiological stimulus for cAMP.  (+info)

Effects of spironolactone and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor on left ventricular hypertrophy in patients with essential hypertension. (2/759)

There is increasing evidence for important cardiovascular effects of aldosterone via classical mineralocorticoid receptors in the heart. Administration of aldosterone with excess salt produces both cardiac hypertrophy and interstitial cardiac fibrosis in rats, and concomitant administration of potassium canrenoate at a dose that only modestly lowers blood pressure completely blocks the cardiac effects of aldosterone. In the present study, we examined the effect on left ventricular hypertrophy of adding a low dose of the mineralocorticoid receptor antagonist spironolactone (25 mg/d) to an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (enalapril maleate) in patients with essential hypertension. Eighteen untreated patients with moderate to severe essential hypertension based on the WHO/ISH guidelines participated in this study. Subjects were treated with either an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor alone (group I: 10 patients, 4 men and 6 women, mean age 56 +/- 18 yr) or an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor plus spironolactone (group II: 8 patients, 3 men and 5 women, mean age 59 +/- 14 yr) for 9 mo. Left ventricular mass index, various echocardiographic variables, mean blood pressure, plasma renin activity, and plasma aldosterone concentration before treatment were similar in the two groups. Blood pressure of both groups decreased significantly and similarly after antihypertensive treatment (group I, 136 +/- 9/82 +/- 9 mmHg; group II, 133 +/- 9/85 +/- 10 mmHg). Left ventricular mass index also decreased significantly in both groups (group I, -10.2 +/- 7.1%; group II, -18.1 +/- 6.9%). The extent of reduction was significantly greater in the spironolactone group (group II) (p < 0.05 vs. group I). In group II patients, spironolactone did not cause any side effects during the observation period. We conclude that spironolactone may have beneficial effects on left ventricular hypertrophy in patients with essential hypertension who are receiving an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor.  (+info)

Brain mineralocorticoid receptor control of blood pressure and kidney function in normotensive rats. (3/759)

Brain mineralocorticoid receptors appear to contribute to mineralocorticoid hypertension and may be involved in blood pressure control in normotensive rats. We examined the effect of blockade of central mineralocorticoid receptors with the use of a selective antagonist (RU28318) on cardiovascular and renal function in conscious normotensive rats. The contribution of renal innervation was evaluated in rats with bilaterally denervated kidneys. Young adult, male Wistar rats were trained for systolic blood pressure measurement by a tail sphygmographic method and accustomed to metabolic cages for collection of urine. One week before experimentation, an intracerebroventricular cannula was implanted. Systolic blood pressure was diminished 30 minutes after an intracerebroventricular dose of 10 ng of RU28318. The effect was maximal at 8 hours and was still present after 24 hours. Blood pressure returned to the basal level by 48 hours. During the period 0 to 8 hours after intracerebroventricular injection, rats treated with the antagonist showed an increase in diuresis and urinary electrolyte excretion. No significant effect on plasma renin activity, measured 8 and 30 hours after administration of RU28318, was observed. In denervated rats, the decrease in systolic blood pressure after administration of RU28318 was reduced. The difference was statistically significant compared with controls at 2 hours but not at 8 hours, and blood pressure returned to the basal value by 24 hours. The increases in diuresis and urinary electrolyte excretion induced by RU28318 were abolished in denervated rats. These results show that brain mineralocorticoid receptors are involved in blood pressure regulation and kidney function homeostasis in conscious normotensive rats. The renal nerves appear to participate in the brain mineralocorticoid receptor control of blood pressure.  (+info)

Lesion-induced plasticity in rat vestibular nucleus neurones dependent on glucocorticoid receptor activation. (4/759)

1. We have recently shown that neurones in the rostral region of the medial vestibular nucleus (MVN) develop a sustained increase in their intrinsic excitability within 4 h of a lesion of the vestibular receptors of the ipsilateral inner ear. This increased excitability may be important in the rapid recovery of resting activity in these neurones during 'vestibular compensation', the behavioural recovery that follows unilateral vestibular deafferentation. In this study we investigated the role of the acute stress that normally accompanies the symptoms of unilateral labyrinthectomy (UL), and in particular the role of glucocorticoid receptors (GRs), in the development of the increase in excitability in the rostral MVN cells after UL in the rat. 2. The compensatory increase in intrinsic excitability (CIE) of MVN neurones failed to occur in animals that were labyrinthectomized under urethane anaesthesia and kept at a stable level of anaesthesia for either 4 or 6 h after UL, so that they did not experience the stress normally associated with the vestibular deafferentation syndrome. In these animals, 'mimicking' the stress response by administration of the synthetic GR agonist dexamethasone at the time of UL, restored and somewhat potentiated CIE in the MVN cells. Administration of dexamethasone in itself had no effect on the intrinsic excitability of MVN cells in sham-operated animals. 3. In animals that awoke after labyrinthectomy, and which therefore experienced the full range of oculomotor and postural symptoms of UL, there was a high level of Fos-like immunoreactivity in the paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus over 1.5-3 h post-UL, indicating a strong activation of the stress axis. 4. The GR antagonist RU38486 administered at the time of UL abolished CIE in the rostral MVN cells, and significantly delayed behavioural recovery as indicated by the persistence of circular walking. The mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) antagonist spironolactone administered at the time of UL had no effect. 5. Vestibular compensation thus involves a novel form of 'metaplasticity' in the adult brain, in which the increase in intrinsic excitability of rostral MVN cells and the initial behavioural recovery are dependent both on the vestibular deafferentation and on the activation of glucocorticoid receptors, during the acute behavioural stress response that follows UL. These findings help elucidate the beneficial effects of neuroactive steroids on vestibular plasticity in various species including man, while the lack of such an effect in the guinea-pig may be due to the significant differences in the physiology of the stress axis in that species.  (+info)

The effect of spironolactone on morbidity and mortality in patients with severe heart failure. Randomized Aldactone Evaluation Study Investigators. (5/759)

BACKGROUND AND METHODS: Aldosterone is important in the pathophysiology of heart failure. In a doubleblind study, we enrolled 1663 patients who had severe heart failure and a left ventricular ejection fraction of no more than 35 percent and who were being treated with an angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitor, a loop diuretic, and in most cases digoxin. A total of 822 patients were randomly assigned to receive 25 mg of spironolactone daily, and 841 to receive placebo. The primary end point was death from all causes. RESULTS: The trial was discontinued early, after a mean follow-up period of 24 months, because an interim analysis determined that spironolactone was efficacious. There were 386 deaths in the placebo group (46 percent) and 284 in the spironolactone group (35 percent; relative risk of death, 0.70; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.60 to 0.82; P<0.001). This 30 percent reduction in the risk of death among patients in the spironolactone group was attributed to a lower risk of both death from progressive heart failure and sudden death from cardiac causes. The frequency of hospitalization for worsening heart failure was 35 percent lower in the spironolactone group than in the placebo group (relative risk of hospitalization, 0.65; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.54 to 0.77; P<0.001). In addition, patients who received spironolactone had a significant improvement in the symptoms of heart failure, as assessed on the basis of the New York Heart Association functional class (P<0.001). Gynecomastia or breast pain was reported in 10 percent of men who were treated with spironolactone, as compared with 1 percent of men in the placebo group (P<0.001). The incidence of serious hyperkalemia was minimal in both groups of patients. CONCLUSIONS: Blockade of aldosterone receptors by spironolactone, in addition to standard therapy, substantially reduces the risk of both morbidity and death among patients with severe heart failure.  (+info)

Aldosterone activates Na+/H+ exchange in vascular smooth muscle cells by nongenomic and genomic mechanisms. (6/759)

BACKGROUND: In vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs), Na+/H+ exchange (NHE) plays an important role in intracellular pH (pHi) regulation. Recently, nongenomic effect of aldosterone (ALDO) on NHE activity has been suggested in VSMCs. However, the nongenomic and genomic effects of ALDO on NHE and the intracellular signaling mechanisms for these effects have not fully been determined in VSMCs. METHODS: The effects of short- (3 hr) and long- (24 hr) term exposure to ALDO on NHE activity were examined in cultured VSMCs from rat thoracic aortae by using single-cell pHi measurement with the pH-sensitive dye 2'7'-bis(carboxyethyl)-5(6)-carboxyfluorescein. The NHE activity was calculated from the initial rate of Na+-dependent pHi recovery after acid load. RESULTS: The NHE activity significantly increased after short- and long-term exposure of VSMCs to ALDO (10(-6) M). The inhibitors of gene transcription (actinomycin D) and of protein synthesis (cycloheximide) had no effect on the short-term ALDO effect, but inhibited the long-term ALDO effect. The antagonists of the mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) (spironolactone) and of the glucocorticoid receptor (GR) (RU38486) caused no effect on the short-term ALDO effect, but inhibited the long-term ALDO effect. Two protein kinase C (PKC) inhibitors (staurosporine A and calphostin C) and PKC down-regulation (24 hr pre-exposure to phobol 12-myristate 13-acetate, PMA) inhibited both the short- and long-term ALDO effects. Exposure of VSMCs to PMA for 3 hours mimicked the short-term effect of ALDO on NHE activity. ALDO significantly increased PKC activity in VSMCs. The short-term ALDO effect was inhibited by disruptors of microtubule (colchicine) and of filamentous-actin (cytochalasin B). Long-term exposure of ALDO caused a threefold increase in NHE (NHE-1) mRNA levels. CONCLUSIONS: The short-term effect of ALDO on NHE activity is not mediated through either MR or GR, occurs independent of gene transcription and protein synthesis, and occurs through a mechanism involving the structural elements of cytoskeleton. The long-term effect of ALDO on NHE activity occurs through both MR and GR and requires gene transcription and protein synthesis. Both short- and long-term effects of ALDO are mediated through PKC activation. Therefore, ALDO activates NHE by nongenomic and genomic mechanisms in VSMCs.  (+info)

Influence of spironolactone on neonatal screening for congenital adrenal hyperplasia. (7/759)

AIM: To determine if the diuretic spironolactone cross reacts with 17alpha-hydroxyprogesterone (17OHP) in an enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) kit used for the mass screening of congenital adrenal hyperplasia. METHODS: Concentrations of 17OHP on a blood filter paper disc were measured using an ELISA kit (kit C-7: ENZAPLATE N-17alpha -OHP-7; Chiron, Tokyo, Japan). The cross reactivity of spironolactone and its metabolites with 17OHP was determined. The concentrations of spironolactone and its metabolites in blood were measured using HPLC (high performance liquid chromatography). RESULTS: Spironolactone cross reacted with 17OHP using kit C-7 (0.01%), by increasing 17OHP concentration in a dose dependent manner. The blood concentration of spironolactone and its metabolites was nearly 900 ng/ml, high enough to show an additive effect on the 17OHP concentration. About 12% of the false positive cases screened using the kit were due to the administration of spironolactone. CONCLUSIONS: Spironolactone interferes with 17OHP concentrations, leading to false positive test results for CAH.  (+info)

Effect of poststroke captopril treatment on mortality associated with hemorrhagic stroke in stroke-prone rats. (8/759)

We tested the ability of captopril treatment (50 mg/kg/day p.o.), initiated 2 weeks before stroke or up to 5 days after stroke, to alter the onset of stroke and death after stroke in Kyoto Wistar stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRsp). The benefits of blood pressure and aldosterone suppression during captopril treatment were assessed. SHRsp developed a 100% mortality rate with intracerebral hemorrhage by 16 weeks of age. Captopril treatment, started 2 weeks before or at the initiation of stroke, suppressed plasma aldosterone and equally prevented mortality to a mean age of >27 weeks. Treatment started 5 days after stroke extended the mean lifespan to >23 weeks. The re-elevation of plasma aldosterone (via osmotic pumps to levels in untreated SHRsp) during captopril treatment, before stroke, allowed stroke to develop. The initiation of the latter manipulation in pre- or poststroke captopril-treated SHRsp at a latter age (23 weeks) didn't alter the lifespan of SHRsp (death occurred at about 28 weeks). The antistroke effects of captopril treatment occurred without an antihypertensive effect, weren't altered by enhancing hypertension during treatment (with dexamethasone), and couldn't be duplicated by antihypertensive treatment with hydralazine. Spironolactone treatment didn't duplicate the effects of captopril. The suppression of plasma aldosterone may retard the onset of stroke in SHRsp during captopril treatment but likely other factors prolong life in pre- and poststroke SHRsp receiving long-term captopril treatment. The observation that spironolactone treatment couldn't duplicate the effects of captopril suggests that aldosterone may facilitate stroke through nongenomic receptor mechanisms.  (+info)

In the investigators recent daily clinical practice, they found that the larger dose of the aldosterone antagonist spironolactone combined with a lower dose of an ACE inhibitor and the highest tolerable dose of beta blockers could reverse left ventricular remodeling more effectively than a smaller dose of spironolactone. The ventricular remodeling could get back to normal, especially in patients with none-ischaemic cardiomyopathy. The investigators hypothesize that long term use of a larger dose of the aldosterone antagonist spironolactone could reverse left ventricular remodeling by stimulating new myocyte formation. Thus, they designed this study to verify its efficacy and safety in reversing left ventricular remodeling in severe congestive heart failure in patients with nonischemic cardiomyopathy. To avoid hyperkalemia, the investigators routinely use larger doses of diuretics in combination with a lower dose of an ACE inhibitor to offset the potassium-sparing effects of spironolactone and ...

The recent article by Raheja et al1 provided for highly interesting reading. Interestingly, recent data suggest that spironolactone may have significant pain ameliorating effects that may prove to be an additional benefit of its use in hypertensive and cardiac patients.. For instance, intrathecal administration of spironolactone significantly decreases pain in response to nociceptive stimuli. Spironolactone exerts these analgesic effects by decreasing the production of inflammatory cytokines, especially p-NR1 and tumor necrosis factor-α.2 Spironolactone also attenuates microglia activation, as well as causes downregulation of N-Methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors in the dorsal root ganglions.. Similarly, spironolactone decreases diabetes mellitus-associated hyperalgesia by mitigating diabetes mellitus-associated elevations in nitric oxide levels in the serum.3 Interestingly, spironolactone accentuates the antinociceptive potential of steroids such as dexamethasone.4 This synergistic effect of ...
Aldactone is a brand name for spironolactone, a diuretic that treats high blood pressure and high levels of aldosterone hormone.. How It Works. Aldactone is considered as a potassium-sparing diuretic. Diuretics, commonly referred to as water pills, cause urination to remove excessive body fluids. Most diuretics cause the body to lose salt and potassium levels rapidly along with water levels, leading to a condition known as hypokalemia. Aldactone, unlike common other loop diuretics, can block sodium channels so the body does not lose salt levels.. Uses. Aldactone is mostly prescribed to cure high blood pressure. Most hypertension medications cause low potassium levels as a side effect. Aldactone can lower blood pressure without this risk. Aldactone can also relieve a condition known as edema where parts of the body retain excess fluids and swell. Aldactone is often given to patients who suffer from congestive heart failure, kidney disease, and cirrhosis of the liver. Aldactone may be part of a ...

Major findings from this double-blind, parallel-design, 1-year trial on a small group of previously untreated subjects with mild-to-moderate hypertension who accepted to have gluteal subcutaneous biopsies for sampling of resistance vessels demonstrate the following: (1) treatment with the selective mineralocorticoid antagonist eplerenone with good BP control reduced stiffness and the collagen/elastin ratio in resistance arteries; (2) resistance vessels from atenolol-treated patients exhibited increased stiffness and unchanged collagen/elastin ratio, despite similar effective BP control; and (3) there was improved inflammatory status in eplerenone-treated patients.. Hypertensive subjects in the present study demonstrated eutrophic small artery remodeling as expected in patients with newly diagnosed uncomplicated hypertension. We have reported previously that structural remodeling (increased media/lumen ratio) of resistance arteries occurs as an early stage in the progression of the target-organ ...
Spironolactone is effective for NYHA class III and IV heart failure and hypertension (4th or 5th line) but can be a difficult drug to use. Elevated serum potassium levels may occur in around 18% of patients.. In a case-control study spironolactone was associated with a doubling in the rate of gastrointestinal bleed events.1 This effect was stronger with increasing doses and when spironolactone was combined with NSAIDs/corticosteroids.. Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (UK) now advise that use of spironolactone with ACEi or ARB increases the risk of severe hyperkalaemia, particularly in patients with marked renal impairment, should be used with caution, and requires regular monitoring of renal function.2. Spironolactone should only be started if serum potassium ≤5.0mmol/L and serum creatinine is ≤221 μmol/L. Monitor serum potassium and creatinine 1 week after initiation or increase in dose of spironolactone, monthly for the first 3 months, then quarterly for a year, and ...
We have studied the effects of add-on spironolactone treatment (100 mg/day) in 11 patients with idiopathic membranous nephropathy (IMN) and | 3 gm proteinuria/day despite angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor therapy titrated to a systolic/diastolic blood pressure | 120/80 mmHg. Blood pressure, 24-hour urinary protein excretion, and creatinine clearance were measured prior to, after two months of combined therapy, and after a 2-month withdrawal period of spironolactone. While systolic and diastolic blood pressure decreased significantly after spironolactone therapy, proteinuria did not improve. Serum potassium increased significantly as well, with three patients requiring resin-binding therapy. Thus, spironolactone seems to have no additional antiproteinuric effects over ACE inhibitor therapy in patients with IMN and nephrotic syndrome and carries the risk of significant hyperkalemia.

This randomized placebo-controlled study demonstrates that in an ambulatory hypertensive population with isolated LV diastolic dysfunction and reduced functional capacity due to exertional dyspnea, myocardial function can be improved over a period of 6 months with aldosterone antagonism by using a hemodynamically insignificant dose of spironolactone. Improvement of LV long-axis systolic function was confirmed by increases in strain and SR with intervention and was supported by changes of a similar magnitude in long-axis CVIB. Left ventricular radial function was also observed to increase with treatment, although these changes were not independently related to spironolactone therapy.. It has been suggested that the focus on diastolic dysfunction in patients with HF and preserved ejection fraction may be misleading.34 Indeed, in addition to diastolic dysfunction, abnormalities of systolic function in hypertensive patients have been clearly demonstrated in the presence of LV hypertrophy.14,35,36 ...

As we all know, both spironolactone and eflornithine hydrochloride can be used for female facial hirsutism, but what are their differences?. #1. Dosage forms. Spironolactone is made into tablets or oral suspensions but never used topically. While eflornithine is mainly made into topical creams well-known as Vaniqa of Gillette. There was an eflornithine injection, but it was discontinued for safety reasons.. #2. Working Mechanism. Spironolactone is also used for facial hirsutism due to its androgen-blocking ability. It works by blocking androgens ability to affect the human body.. It is similar to finasteride on androgen blocking-mechanism. But it may take 3 to 6 months for spironolactone to work.. Many will use birth control pills together with spironolactone for a better facial-hair-ridding effect because birth control pills can reduce androgen production.. Eflornithine hydrochloride is also used to treat hirsutism, but it works by interfering with a chemical in hair follicles under the skin ...

Spironolactone is a specific pharmacologic antagonist of aldosterone, acting primarily through competitive binding of receptors at the aldosterone-dependent sodium-potassium exchange site in the distal convoluted renal tubule. Spironolactone causes elevated amounts of sodium and water to be excreted, while potassium is kept. Spironolactone acts like a diuretic as well as an antihypertensive drug at this mechanism. It can be given alone or with other diuretic agents which act more proximally in the renal tubule. Aldosterone interacts with a cytoplasmic mineralocorticoid receptor to enhance the expression of the Na , K -ATPase and the Na channel included with a Na K transport in the distal tubule . Spironolactone bind to this mineralcorticoid receptor, blocking the actions of aldosterone on gene expression. Aldosterone is a hormone; its own primary job is to maintain sodium and excrete potassium from the kidneys.. ...
Eplerenone is a steroidal antimineralocorticoid of the spirolactone group that is used as an adjunct in the management of chronic heart failure. Classed as a selective aldosterone receptor antagonist (SARA), it is similar to the diuretic spironolactone, though it is much more selective for the mineralocorticoid receptor in comparison (i.e., does not possess any antiandrogen, progestogen, glucocorticoid, or estrogenic effects), and is specifically marketed for reducing cardiovascular risk in patients following myocardial infarction. Eplerenone is a potassium-sparing diuretic, meaning that it helps the body get rid of water but still keep potassium. Eplerenone was developed by Pharmacia Corporation, which was acquired by Pfizer in 2002. It was marketed by Pfizer under the trade name Inspra. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the drug for sale in the United States in 2002. Eplerenone is currently approved for sale in the US, EU, Netherlands and Japan. Eplerenone costs an estimated ...
Spironolactone is a steroidal potassium-sparing diuretic used in the treatment of oedema, hypertension and hyperaldosteronism.. 5.2 Human carcinogenicity data. Spironolactone was mentioned specifically in two cohort studies and one case control study. In one cohort study carried out in the USA, an excess risk for pharyngeal cancer was found, which persisted with longer follow-up. No evidence for an association with breast cancer was found in the other cohort study, and use of spironolactone was not associated with thyroid cancer in one case control study. All three studies were based on small numbers of cases.. In five case control studies of renal-cell carcinoma, use of potassium-sparing diuretics was not clearly identified as a risk factor independently of hypertension.. 5.3 Animal carcinogenicity data. Spironolactone was tested by oral administration in one study in rats. Increased incidences of thyroid follicular-cell adenomas and Leydig-cell tumours of the testis were reported. ...

In this analysis of patients with moderately severe to severe HF with reduced EF who were randomized to a MRA or placebo, self-identified AA patients developed less hyperkalemia but higher rates of hypokalemia while taking spironolactone compared with similarly treated non-AA patients. Despite a similar initial study drug dose, potassium concentrations increased substantially in non-AA individuals assigned to spironolactone within a month after randomization, whereas potassium levels in AA participants did not change significantly. However, AA participants seemed to derive less clinical benefit from an MRA.. Differences in potassium response to spironolactone among AA and non-AA participants were evident early in the study and persisted throughout the trial. Potassium levels of non-AA participants increased, on average, by 0.25 mmol/L while taking spironolactone compared with those taking placebo. Changes in potassium concentrations were minimal in AA participants. In addition, there were lower ...

Aldactone is a diuretic of the new generation which contains an active ingredient Spironolactone.. A diuretic effect of Aldactone is slowly developed, and therefore this drug will not do for the fast reduction of severe edemas. The pharmacological action begins within a day after the first use of the tablet, however the maximal effect is achieved in 3-4 days. Therefore, Aldactone is good only for the treatment of the chronic edema during different pathologies in the human body.. A weak intensity of the diuretic effect of Aldactone has its own pluses. Using this drug excretes only excessive liquid, sodium and chloride which take part in the formation of edemas. Potassium and magnesium are kept due to which the mineral balance is not affected, and the side effects appear seldom in comparison with diuretics with intense pharmacological action.. ...
Just like any medication, spironolactone may cause side effects. Most people will not experience any side effects from taking spironolactone. If you do experience side effects from the medication, they may or may not be bothersome. The side effects that you experience will vary from one patient to another.. Spironolactone may cause the following side effects, but not everyone experiences them:. Abdominal or stomach cramps. Diarrhea. Dizziness. Drowsiness. Excessive sweating. Loss of appetite. Nausea or vomiting. Tiredness or fatigue (particularly during the first few weeks of treatment). Weakness or unusual tiredness. Other side effects include (but are not limited to). Anxiety. Blurred vision. Difficulty breathing. Difficulty concentrating or confusion. Hearing problems, such as increased sensitivity to sound (hyperacusis) and mounting inner-ear pressure (pulsatile tinnitus). Skin rash, itching, or hives (urticaria). Vision changes. While the side effects listed above are not life-threatening, ...
Spironolactone, an inhibitor of the mineralocorticoid receptor, has been used for many years. Although once quite popular, especially in combination with a thiazide diuretic, spironolactone nearly fell out of view (except for its use as a medical treatment for primary aldosteronism) until it was resurrected for its value in the treatment of congestive heart failure. As indicated by the comments related to our case study, spironolactone can be highly effective in many patients with refractory hypertension in combination with a thiazide-type diuretic and can correct hypokalemia as well. However, gynecomastia is a limiting adverse reaction for men treated with spironolactone because of the antiandrogen effect of this drug. Premenopausal women treated with spironolactone may develop menstrual irregularities, so that spironolactone is most likely to have sustained acceptance only by postmenopausal women. Eplerenone has recently been developed as a selective mineralocorticoid antagonist whose adverse ...
This study shows that spironolactone prevents the progression of carotid CIMT in HD patients. The protective effect of spironolactone was observed in the absence of RAS inhibitors. Atherosclerosis is accepted as a common mechanism underlying all CVDs and atherosclerotic CVD is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with ESRD (1-3). Prospective studies have shown an association between increased CIMT and the incidence of CVDs (16-18). In fact, CIMT is a well described surrogated marker for cardiovascular risk (10-14). A thickened CIMT correlates with the presence of myocardial infarction and stroke by cross-sectional analysis (13). In some countries, recommendations already suggest that carefully performed IMT measurement can add incremental information to traditional risk factor assessment (European Society of Cardiology Guidelines). The main advantage of using CIMT as an end point in a trial concerning morbidity and mortality is the considerable reduction in sample size and ...

It is a synthetic 17-lactone drug that is a renal competitive aldosterone antagonist in a class of pharmaceuticals called potassium-sparing diuretics, used primarily to treat heart failure, ascites in patients with liver disease, low-renin hypertension, hypokalemia, secondary hyperaldosteronism (such as occurs with hepatic cirrhosis), and Conns syndrome (primary hyperaldosteronism). On its own, spironolactone is only a weak diuretic because its effects target the distal nephron (collecting tubule), where urine volume can only be slightly modified; but it can be combined with other diuretics to increase efficacy. About one person in one hundred with hypertension has elevated levels of aldosterone; in these persons, the antihypertensive effect of spironolactone may exceed that of complex combined regimens of other antihypertensives.. Due to its antiandrogen effect, it can also be used to treat hirsutism. It is also used for treating hair loss and acne in women, and can be used as a topical ...
In the present study, the effects of hyperaldosteronism on myocardial injury in the setting of a high-salt diet were examined. There were three major findings of the present study. First, the data indicate that aldosterone/salt treatment induces leukocyte infiltration and injury of coronary arteries with associated ischemic and necrotic lesions of the adjacent myocardium. Second, we have identified the myocardial expression and progressive upregulation of the proinflammatory molecules osteopontin, MCP-1, and COX-2 in response to aldosterone/salt treatment. Third, the expression of proinflammatory molecules was diminished and vascular and cardiac pathology abrogated by treatment with the selective aldosterone blocker eplerenone, implicating a role for mineralocorticoid receptor stimulation in aldosterone/salt-induced myocardial injury. Although vascular inflammation seems to be the initial effect induced by aldosterone/salt treatment with the elevated myocardial expression of inflammatory ...

To compare the efficacy and safety of Diane 35 plus spironolactone and Diane 35 plus finasteride in the treatment of hirsutism and acne. Materials and Methods: A prospective randomized clinical trial was conducted on 120 Indian women with hirsutism. Group I patients were treated with Diane 35 plus spironolactone 100 mg daily and group II patients with Diane 35 plus finasteride 5 mg daily for 12 months. Hirsutism and acne score were graded every 3 months, for 18 months. The basal gonadotropins levels and androgens level were measured before the study. Statistical analysis was done by Student‘s t-test and repeated measure analysis followed by post hoc comparison. Results: Reduction in hirsutism and acne scores assessed every 3 months was significant (p<0.001) and similar between the two groups, indicating that if treatment was prolonged for over 12 months, reduction scores would have been better. A significant decrease in the hirsutism score of 55.3%±17.2 and 59.4%±17.5 was observed
Title: The Risks and Benefits of Therapy with Aldosterone Receptor Antagonist Therapy. VOLUME: 2 ISSUE: 1. Author(s):Domenic A. Sica.

Keywords:Spironolactone, eplerenone, aldosterone receptor antagonism, hyperkalemia, heart failure, resistant hypertension. Abstract: Spironolacotone and eplerenone are mineralocorticoid-blocking agents. These compounds block both the epithelial and non-epithelial actions of aldosterone with the latter assuming increasing clinical importance. Spironolactone and eplerenone both effectively reduce blood pressure either as mono- or add-on therapy; moreover, they each offer survival benefits in diverse circumstances of heart failure and the potential for renal protection in proteinuric chronic kidney disease. However, as the use of mineralocorticoid-blocking ...

Therapy with spironolactone is often associated with estrogenlike side-effects, including impotence and gynecomastia in men and menstrual irregularity in women. Several possible mechanisms by which spironolactone could cause these side-effects have been identified. Spironolactone has been shown to affect both gonadal and adrenal steroidogenesis, to elevate plasma gonadotrophin levels in children, and to act as an antiandrogen at the target tissue level. This conference presents a discussion of how these effects might interact to produce the endocrine side effects associated with spironolactone therapy. ...

Aldosterone antagonists (or aldosterone blockers) are a class of medications used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure. They work on the same hormone system as ACE inhibitors and ARBs, but in a slightly different way. Aldosterone antagonists block the receptors in the body for the hormone aldosterone, causing the kidneys to hold onto more potassium and get rid of more fluid by increasing urine output. Less fluid in the body means lower blood pressure and less total blood volume, reducing the hearts workload and easing the strain on the heart. Getting rid of excess fluid helps relieve the symptoms of heart failure that are caused by fluid buildup, such as shortness of breath and swelling in the legs.. Aldosterone antagonists are not routine therapy for women with heart failure because they are less proven than other medications in the same class, including ACE inhibitors and ARBs. but are beneficial in selected women with systolic heart failure(blood pumping problems) who have recently ...
The amiloride-sensitive epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) is usually found in the apical membrane of epithelial cells but has also recently been described in vascular endothelium. Because little is known about the regulation and cell surface density of ENaC, we studied the influence of aldosterone, spironolactone, and amiloride on its abundance in the plasma membrane of human endothelial cells. Three different methods were applied, single ENaC molecule detection in the plasma membrane, quantification by Western blotting, and cell surface imaging using atomic force microscopy. We found that aldosterone increases the surface expression of ENaC molecules by 36% and the total cellular amount by 91%. The aldosterone receptor antagonist spironolactone prevents these effects completely. Acute application of amiloride to aldosterone-pretreated cells led to a decline of intracellular ENaC by 84%. We conclude that, in vascular endothelium, aldosterone induces ENaC expression and insertion into the plasma membrane.
Although aldosterone was classically described to act on renal epithelial cells, recent evidence suggests that the most significant contribution of aldosterone to both cardiovascular and renal disease results from nonepithelial, fibrotic, and proinflammatory effects at a number of target organs, including the heart and the kidneys. Epstein (9,10,33) reviewed the rapidly emerging preclinical evidence for aldosterone as a mediator of progressive renal disease. Consistent with previous findings using spironolactone (34), eplerenone has been demonstrated to confer renal protection independent of its effects on BP (15,17). In concert, these preclinical studies in diverse rat models demonstrated that the renal injury and fibrosis that are induced by aldosterone infusion are characterized by a florid inflammatory component that involves macrophage infiltration and cytokine upregulation. In addition, treatment with eplerenone reduced osteopontin and expression of proinflammatory molecules, with ...
For patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction, aldosterone blockade with spironolactone improves left ventricular diastolic function, but has no impact on maximal exercise capacity, quality of life, or patient symptoms.
To answer your question, Yes. Topical stimulation is another you can make unwanted hair worse. The spironolactone your on is a androgen blocker. Spironolactone will help prevent some of the thin vellus hairs from turning into terminal (course) hair. When you topically stimulate the hair by waxing, threading, sugaring, or tweezing the area, the body sends more blood to the area to repair the injured area. Hair serves as protection for the skin, so naturally when you rip it out of the blood supply, its a injury to the follicle. Since the hair gets its nourishment from the blood supply, the hair removed by waxing in your case would be stimulated. The blood supply will become healthier and stronger and with time, your unwanted hair will grow deeper and courser. Plus when you wax, you remove all the hair .. the course, medium and fine hair, so you are topically stimulating the medium and finer hair which will end up turning into terminal course hairs ...

7α-Thiomethylspironolactone (7α-TMS; developmental code name SC-26519) is a steroidal antimineralocorticoid and antiandrogen of the spirolactone group and the major active metabolite of spironolactone.[1] Other important metabolites of spironolactone include 7α-thiospironolactone (7α-TS; SC-24813), 6β-hydroxy-7α-thiomethylspironolactone (6β-OH-7α-TMS), and canrenone (SC-9376).[2][3][1][4] Spironolactone is a prodrug with a short terminal half-life of 1.4 hours.[5][6][7] The active metabolites of spironolactone have extended terminal half-lives of 13.8 hours for 7α-TMS, 15.0 hours for 6β-OH-7α-TMS, and 16.5 hours for canrenone, and accordingly, these metabolites are responsible for the therapeutic effects of the drug.[5][6] 7α-TS and 7α-TMS have been found to possess approximately equivalent affinity for the rat ventral prostate androgen receptor (AR) relative to that of spironolactone.[8] The affinity of 7α-TS, 7α-TMS, and spironolactone for the rat prostate AR is about 3.0 to ...
BACKGROUND: Treatment with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEi) and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARB) is increasingly used to reduce proteinuria and retard the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, resolution of proteinuria may be incomplete with these therapies and the addition of an aldosterone antagonist may be added to further prevent progression of CKD. This is an update of a review first published in 2009.. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the effect of aldosterone antagonists (both selective (eplerenone) and non-selective (spironolactone)) alone or in combination with ACEi or ARB in adults who have CKD with proteinuria (nephrotic and non-nephrotic range) on: patient-centred endpoints including major cardiovascular events, hospitalisation and all-cause mortality; kidney function (proteinuria, glomerular filtration rate (GFR), serum creatinine, and need for renal replacement therapy; and adverse events (including gynaecomastia and hyperkalaemia).. SEARCH METHODS: For ...

Our immunohistochemistry results indicated that the MR was not primarily located in the nucleus in normal DRG, translocating there only early after DRG inflammation. For the classical nuclear actions of the MR receptor, such translocation is generally taken as evidence for activation. The observations in normal DRG may seem to contradict the general view that the MR in most tissues should be chronically activated by basal plasma levels of corticosterone (except in tissues such as kidney where corticosterone is enzymatically degraded)-the affinity of the MR for corticosterone is higher than its affinity for aldosterone, so the (much higher) basal plasma levels of corticosterone should chronically activate the MR. RNA for the enzyme that degrades corticosterone in classical aldosterone-sensitive tissues, 11-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type II, is present in DRG21 though it is not known if this is neuronal or perhaps associated with vascular cells. In addition, the MR can apparently have forms ...

The constellation of cardiovascular risk factors represented by metabolic syndrome (MS) is associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Cardiac complications of MS include abnormal left ventricular (LV) structure and function, leading progressively to congestive heart failure (1-5). As the prevalence of this condition rises to nearly a quarter of the adult population, exceeding 40% in those older than 50 years (6), these cardiac ramifications are likely to become a major public health concern.. The mechanisms behind cardiac derangements in MS are multifactorial, but one of the pivotal contributors is thought to be myocardial fibrosis (7). Accordingly, measures targeting this pathophysiology might improve outcomes by reducing the pathological substrate accounting for myocardial impairment. The renin-angiotensin-aldosterone (RAA) system has been incriminated in the process of cardiac fibroblast proliferation and collagen synthesis. However, although angiotensin-converting ...
We describe severe hypokalaemia and hypertension due to a mineralocorticoid effect in a patient with myelodysplastic syndrome taking posaconazole as antifungal prophylaxis. Two distinct mechanisms due to posaconazole are identified: inhibition of 11β hydroxylase leading to the accumulation of the mineralocorticoid hormone 11-deoxycorticosterone (DOC) and secondly, inhibition of 11β hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 2 (11βHSD2), as demonstrated by an elevated serum cortisol-to-cortisone ratio. The effects were ameliorated by spironolactone. We also suggest that posaconazole may cause cortisol insufficiency. Patients taking posaconazole should therefore be monitored for hypokalaemia, hypertension and symptoms of hypocortisolaemia, at the onset of treatment and on a monthly basis. Treatment with mineralocorticoid antagonists (spironolactone or eplerenone), supplementation of glucocorticoids (e.g. hydrocortisone) or dose reduction or cessation of posaconazole should all be considered as ...

FightAcne.com: What is the background for this study?. Response: Spironolactone is used off-label for the treatment of acne in women. However, data on its effectiveness is limited to small trials and retrospective studies that often use subjective, qualitative outcomes. As a result, we sought to characterize the effectiveness of spironolactone for acne in routine clinical practice, using objective, quantitative outcomes such as the Comprehensive Acne Severity Scale. We also evaluated acne both on the face and also on the chest and back.. FightAcne.com: What are the main findings?. Response: We found that spironolactone is effective for both acne on the face as well as for acne on the chest and back. Similar to prior studies, we found that spironolactone can take a few months to reach peak effectiveness, so patience is importance when starting treatment with spironolactone. We found that doses 100mg/day or higher tended to be better than lower doses. Continue reading → ...

Rationale and design of the Treatment of Preserved Cardiac Function Heart Failure with an Aldosterone Antagonist Trial: A randomized, controlled study of spironolactone in patients with symptomatic heart failure and preserved ejection fraction.
Reperfusion of ischemic myocardium generates oxidative stress, which itself can mediate myocardial injury. So, in this study, we investigated the level of oxidative stress markers and its association with clinical outcomes in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention. As indicated in the results, Post MI (Myocardial Infarction) heart failure was significantly higher in the group A (11% vs 4%, p = 0.047). Complete STR (ST-segment resolution) was observed to be significantly higher in the group B (36% vs 17%, p = 0.006). The SOD (Superoxide dismutase) and GPX (Glutathione peroxidase) levels were significantly higher in the group B compared to the other group (1547.51 ± 328.29 vs. 1449.97 ± 246.06, p = 0.019 and 60.62 ± 11.95 vs 57.41 ± 10.14, p = 0.042). The levels of GPX and SOD were shown to be directly related with complete STR and post PCI (Percutaneous coronary intervention)TIMI(Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction)

The hormonal IUD is inserted in a similar procedure to the nonhormonal copper IUD, and can only be inserted by a qualified medical practitioner.[39] Before insertion, a pelvic exam is performed to examine the shape and position of the uterus. It is also recommended that patients be tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia prior to insertion, as a current STI at the time of insertion can increase the risk of pelvic infection.[61] However, if a person has been previously screened and there is no evidence of infection on examination insertion of the IUD does not need to be delayed.[62] During the insertion, the vagina is held open with a speculum, the same device used during a pap smear.[39] A grasping instrument is used to steady the cervix, the length of the uterus is measured for proper insertion, and the IUD is placed using a narrow tube through the opening of the cervix into the uterus.[39] A short length of monofilament plastic/nylon string hangs down from the cervix into the vagina. The string ...

These are drugs which cannot be purchased over the counter without the prescription of a qualified doctor.The manufacture and sale of all drugs are covered under the Drugs and Cosmetics Act and Rules. It is revised at times based on the advice of the Drugs Technical Advisory Board, part of the Central Drugs Standard Control Organization[1] in the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. The most recent schedule H (2006) lists 536 drugs from abacavir to zuclopenthixol.[2] However, enforcement of Schedule H laws in India is lax, compared to the more restrictive Schedule X, for which a mandatory documentation trail must be maintained.[3] ...
The combined hormonal contraceptive vaginal ring is self-administered once a month. Leaving the ring in for three weeks slowly releases hormones into the body, mainly vaginally administered estrogens and/or progestogens (a group of hormones including progesterone) - the same hormones used in birth control pills.[4] These hormones work mostly by stopping ovulation and thickening the cervical mucus, creating a barrier preventing sperm from fertilizing an egg.[4] They could theoretically affect implantation but no evidence shows that they do.[5] Worn continuously for three weeks followed by a week off, each vaginal ring provides anywhere from one month (NuvaRing) to one year (Annovera and Progering) of birth control. For continuous-use contraception, users can also choose to wear the vaginal ring for the full four week cycle. This manner of contraception will eliminate monthly periods.[6] Throughout the additional week, the serum hormone levels will remain in the contraceptive range.[7] When ...
... (also ethinyl estradiol/levonorgestrel) is a combined birth control pill made up of ethinylestradiol, an estrogen and levonorgestrel a progestin.[2] It is used for birth control, symptoms of menstruation, endometriosis, and as emergency contraception.[1][2] It is taken by mouth.[1] Side effects can include nausea, headache, blood clots, breast pain, depression, and liver problems.[2] Use is not recommended during pregnancy, the initial three weeks after childbirth, and in those at high risk of blood clots.[2] However, it may be started immediately after a miscarriage or abortion.[3] Smoking while using combined birth control pills is not recommended.[1] It works by stopping ovulation, making the mucus at the opening to the cervix thick, and making the uterus not suitable for implantation.[1] Ethinylestradiol/levonorgestrel has been approved for medical use in the United States at least since 1982.[1] It is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential ...
Dioscorides, ca. 40 A.D., described the contraceptive property of hemp seeds (Cannabis sativa) and rue (Ruta graveolens) in De Materia Medica, a text widely used into medieval times.[18] One test in rats (20 milligrams of the 80% ethanol extract) found that these reduced sperm count by more than half.[19] In medieval Persia (and in other traditions as cited) these herbs were used for male contraception, as well as Gossypium herbaceum (Malvaceae),[20] Cyperus longus (Cyperaceae), Vitex pseudonegundo (Verbenaceae), Chenopodium ambrosioides (Chenopodiaceae),[21][22] Aristolochia indica (Aristolochiaceae),[23] Punica granatum (Punicaceae),[24] and Sarcostemma acidum (Asclepiadaceae).[25] However, the compound isolated from Gossypium, as well as other cotton seeds and okra (gossypol) has been abandoned for contraceptive use because it was found to cause permanent infertility in ten to twenty percent of users.[26] In Indian traditional medicine, uses of the neem tree were described in Ayurvedic ...
Irregular bleeding and spotting: Many women will experience some type of irregular, unpredictable, prolonged, frequent, or infrequent bleeding when using Nexplanon or Implanon.[18] Some women also experience amenorrhea. For some women, prolonged bleeding will decline after the first three months of use. However, other women may experience this bleeding pattern through all three years of use. While these patterns are not dangerous, they are the most common reason that women give for discontinuing the use of the implant. After removal, bleeding patterns return to previous patterns in most women.[13][14][15][16]. Insertion complications: Some minor side effects such as bruising, skin irritation, or pain around the insertion site are common.[13] However, there are some rare complications that can occur, such as infection or expulsion.[13][19] In some cases, a serious complication occurs when the provider fails to insert, and the rod is left in the inserter. An Australian study reported 84 ...
All contain an estrogen, ethinylestradiol or mestranol,[1][2] in varying amounts, and one of a number of different progestogens. (Regarding the estrogen, the inactive 3-methyl ether of ethinylestradiol, which must be metabolized by the liver into the active ethinylestradiol; 50 µg of mestranol is equivalent to only 35 µg of ethinylestradiol and should not be used when high-dose [50 µg ethinylestradiol] estrogen pills are needed; mestranol was the estrogen used in the first oral contraceptive, Enovid). They are usually taken for 21 days with then a seven-day gap during which a withdrawal bleed (often, but incorrectly, referred to as a menstrual period) occurs. These differ in the amount of estrogen given, and whether they are monophasic (the same dose of estrogen and progestogen during each of the 21 days) or multiphasic (varying doses). The introduction of extended-cycle monophasic pills (i.e. Seasonale) has shown that the withdrawal bleeding intervals can be decreased. ...
The first CIC to be studied was estradiol valerate/hydroxyprogesterone caproate (EV/OHPC) in 1963, and the second CIC to be studied was estradiol enantate/algestone acetophenide (E2-EN/DHPA) in 1964.[18][17] In 1967, E2-EN/DHPA was in the late stages of clinical development.[25][18] By 1969, the medication was available for medical use under the brand name Perlutal.[26] Within a few years, it was marketed under other brand names such as Topasel and Ova-Repos as well.[27][28][29][30] In addition, several other CICs had been introduced for medical use by 1972.[30] By 1976, two major CICs were in use: E2-EN/DHPA (brand names Perlutan, Topasel) in Spain and Latin America, and EV/OHPC (brand name Injectable No. 1) in China.[31] These CICs have been described as first-generation CICs.[31] Two second-generation CICs, estradiol cypionate/medroxyprogesterone acetate (EC/MPA; brand names Cyclofem and later Lunelle) and estradiol valerate/norethisterone enantate (EV/NETE; brand name Mesigyna), were ...
Some American legislators have unsuccessfully attempted to provide financial incentives to women on welfare who agree to use Norplant. For example, in Kansas, Republican Kerry Patrick introduced legislation that would grant welfare recipients a one-time payment of $500 to use Norplant, followed by a $50 bonus each year the implants remained in place."[30] Some judges have offered Norplant implants as a voluntary alternative to jail time for certain women convicted of child abuse or drug abuse during pregnancy. Two days after the 1990 FDA approval of Norplant, an editorial in The Philadelphia Inquirer suggested reducing the size of the black underclass by offering welfare mothers increased benefits if they agreed to use Norplant.[30][31] Eleven days later the Inquirer apologized for their "misguided and wrongheaded" editorial and for their suggestion of offering incentives for Norplant use.[30][32] Critics such as the ACLU argued that such uses are coercive and discriminatory, and compared such ...
