Randomised controlled trial of a Calcium Channel or Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Inhibitor/Angiotensin Receptor Blocker Regime to Reduce Blood Pressure Variability following Ischaemic Stroke (CAARBS): a protocol for a feasibility study.
2017 The Author. Published by Oxford University Press for the Infectious Diseases Society of America. Background. Although statins, angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEI) or angiotensin receptor blockers (ARB) are generally well tolerated, the impact of these therapies individually or in combination on the change in neurocognitive function in persons with human immunodeficiency virus infection is unknown. Methods. The study included participants in the AIDS Clinical Trials Group Longitudinal Linked Randomized Trials cohort participants not receiving a statin or ACEI/ARB within 30 days of first neurologic assessment (baseline), with assessments by NPZ-3 (z score of averaged Trailmaking A and B tests and digit symbol test [DST]) from ≥2 measurements. Marginal structural models estimated the causal effect of statin or ACEI/ARB initiation on neurocognitive function; initial constant slope was assumed during the first year of treatment and a second constant slope thereafter. Results. Of ...

Background. Renal function decreases with age. Dosage adjustment according to renal function is indicated for many drugs, in order to avoid adverse reactions of medications and/or aggravation of renal impairment. There are several ways to assess renal function in the elderly, but no way is ideal. The aim of the study was to explore renal function in elderly subjects in nursing homes and the use of pharmaceuticals that may be harmful to patients with renal impairment.. Methods. 243 elderly subjects living in nursing homes were included. S-creatinine and s-cystatin c were analysed. Renal function was estimated using Cockcroft-Gault formula, Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) and cystatin C-estimated glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Concomitant medication was registered and four groups of renal risk drugs were identified: metformin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID), angiotensin-converting enzyme -inhibitors/angiotensin receptor blockers and digoxin. Descriptive statistics and ...
Our results demonstrate that good adherence to statin in the first 6 months after discharge is associated with subsequent lower incidence of MACE (including all-cause mortality, MI, and stroke) in a large unselected Chinese ACS patient population. This relationship was independent of other treatments which have been shown to be associated with outcomes in ACS such as receipt of coronary interventions, and adherence to antiplatelets, aspirin, beta-blocker, and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor/angiotensin receptor blocker, as well as other known personal prognostic factors such as age, sex, education level, and cardiovascular risk factors and other hospital level characteristics. In addition, the effect of adherence was not modified by the characteristics of patients such as dose of statins, subtypes of ACS, gender, age, social economic status, etc.. It has been well established that good statin adherence is associated with reduced the risk of MACE and all-cause mortality in the primary ...

We reviewed 464 patients with CLI who underwent diagnostic angiography or endovascular intervention from 2006-2013 at a multidisciplinary vascular center. ACEI or ARB use was assessed at the time of angiography. Major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE), mortality, and major adverse limb events (MALE) were assessed during three-year follow-up. Propensity weighting was used to adjust for baseline differences between ...
Purpose Renin-angiotensin system blockers (RASBs), which include angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) and angiotensin-2 receptor 1 blockers (ARBs), have been reported to be associated with lung cancer metastasis, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Until now, very limited clinical data for RASBs diagnostic and prognostic effects has existed for lung cancer chemotherapy in Chinese patients. Methods There were a total of 678 lung cancer patients with hypertension, of which 461 (68%) were in the non-RASBs group and 217 (32%) were in the RASBs group. Patients gender, age, smoking status, histologic differentiation, tumor size, pathological grade, lymph node metastasis, pathological stage and progression-free survival (PFS) were retrospectively analyzed between these two groups. The clinical effects of ACEIs and ARBs in lung cancer patients were compared via t tests, and χ2 test, and potential prognostic factors for progression-free survival (PFS) were evaluated by Kaplan-Meier analysis. Results
The major new finding of the present study is that Hoe140, a bradykinin BK2-receptor antagonist, inhibited the captopril-induced change in CBF autoregulation. The result suggests that the modulation of CBF autoregulation by captopril is mediated, at least in part, by bradykinin.. In a previous report, in which Hoe140 (0.75 nmol) was infused into the aorta in Sprague-Dawley rats, bradykinin-induced hypotension was still impaired by 71% 1 hour after infusion.13 In the present intravenous study, the dose of Hoe140 was similar to or even greater than that in the previous study, and it completely prevented the hypotensive effect of bradykinin. In a steady state, Hoe140 concentration in the circulating blood should be constant in the whole body, including cerebral vessels. This means that a sufficient concentration of Hoe140 to block BK2 receptors should have reached cerebral arteries during the experiment. Furthermore, there is no report that the distribution of BK2 receptor is different between ...
The role of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) reducing risk of cardiovascular events (CVEs) and preserving kidney function in patients with chronic kidney disease is well-documented. However, the efficacy and safety of these agents in dialysis patients is still a controversial issue. We systematically searched MEDLINE, Embase, Cochrane Library and Wanfang for randomized trials. The relative risk (RR) reductions were calculated with a random-effects model. Major cardiovascular events, changes in GFR and drug-related adverse events were analyzed. Eleven trials included 1856 participants who were receiving dialysis therapy. Compared with placebo or other active agents groups, ARB therapy reduced the risk of heart failure events by 33% (RR 0.67, 95% CI 0.47 to 0.93) with similar decrement in blood pressure in dialysis patients. Indirect comparison suggested that fewer cardiovascular events happened during treatment with ARB (0.77, 0.63 to 0.94). The

N2 - The influence of hypertension on the clinical course and complications of type 2 diabetes is well established. With a special focus on angiotensin- converting enzyme inhibitors, this paper will review recently published results of prospective studies addressing two important aspects: the degree of blood pressure control, and the choice of antihypertensive regimen, in the prevention of complications in hypertensive type 2 diabetic patients. None of the recent studies have shown worse outcomes in patients treated with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor-based regimens compared with alternative treatments. Some studies have suggested that angiotensin- converting enzyme inhibitor-based antihypertensive regimens may be superior to alternative treatments in reducing the risk of micro- and macrovascular ...

The main result of this study is that ACE inhibition enhances ischemia-induced angiogenesis through the activation of the B2-receptor pathway. This proangiogenic effect may be associated with the upregulation of eNOS expression but seems independent of the VEGF pathway.. Although evidence is accumulating on the activating role of ACE inhibition in vessel growth, little is known about the cellular signaling involved in such an angiogenic effect. Our study confirms that ACE inhibition enhanced revascularization of the ischemic hindlimb but demonstrates that such an effect was mediated by B2-receptor activation. Indeed, ACE inhibition did not affect vessel growth in mice lacking B2 receptor. Similarly, long-term B2-receptor blockade prevented the ACE inhibitor-induced increase in cardiac capillary density in stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats.8 In the same view, long-term ACE inhibitor treatment ameliorated the severity of myocardial injury in cholesterol-fed rabbits via B2 ...
Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEi) are commonly used for pediatric cardiology patients. However, studies examining their safety for neonates with cardiac disease are scarce. The current study aimed to test the hypothesis that ACEi-mediated nephrotoxicity occurs in neonates and may be underappreciated in this population. A retrospective review of 243 neonates with cardiac disease between 2007 and 2010 was performed. Demographic data, weight, length, captopril and enalapril dosing, serum [K⁺], serum creatinine, and concomitant medications during ACEi therapy were recorded and analyzed. Body surface area (BSA), creatinine clearance (CrCl), and change in [K⁺] were calculated. The age range of neonates at ACEi initiation was 15.9-18.1 days. The inclusion criteria was met by 206 neonates: 168 term (82%) and 38 preterm (18%) newborns. Of these neonates, 42% were female, and all the patients had a BSA smaller than 0.33 m² (a group known to have relative renal insufficiency). The mean ...
BACKGROUND: Results from a retrospective analysis of the Studies of Left Ventricular Dysfunction (SOLVD) study suggest that angiotensin-converting-enzyme (ACE) inhibitors may be less effective in patients receiving aspirin. We aimed to confirm or refute this theory. METHODS: We used the Peto-Yusuf method to undertake a systematic overview of data for 22060 patients from six long-term randomised trials of ACE inhibitors to assess whether aspirin altered the effects of ACE inhibitor therapy on major clinical outcomes (composite of death, myocardial infarction, stroke, hospital admission for congestive heart failure, or revascularisation). FINDINGS: Baseline characteristics, and prognosis in patients allocated placebo, differed strikingly between those who were and were not taking aspirin at baseline. Results from analyses of all trials, except SOLVD, did not suggest any significant differences between the proportional reductions in risk with ACE inhibitor therapy in the presence or absence of aspirin for
For ischemic heart disease with refractory angina that cannot be revascularized, Dr. Miller said options include optimizing medical therapy, such as beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers, nitrates, ranolazine, allopurinol, L-arginine, opioids, and perhaps some investigational agents (if you can get the patient enrolled in a clinical trial). In this setting, the heart team may include the patients general cardiologist, primary doctor, family, nurses, and perhaps other office staff.. While the medical record may suggest the patient is on appropriate therapy, adherence may be a factor. After MI, a large proportion of patients discontinue use of medications over time. Indeed, by 3 years, more than half of patients in one community-based study had already stopped taking statins, beta-blockers, or angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors/angiotensin II receptor blockers.4. Also, its important to target risk factors through statin therapy, antihypertensives, antiplatelets, smoking cessation, weight ...
Angiotensin-II receptor antagonists (or blockers) are a newer class of antihypertensive agents. These drugs are selective for angiotensin II (type 1 receptor); unlike angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, they do not inhibit bradykinin metabolism or enhance prostaglandin synthesis. Angiotensin-II receptor antagonists are well tolerated. Cough occurs much less often with these agents than with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, and they do not adversely affect lipid profiles or cause rebound hypertension after discontinuation. Clinical trials indicate that angiotensin-II receptor antagonists are effective and safe in the treatment of hypertension. Their use in congestive heart failure and renal disease is under investigation.

Several well-controlled trials in patients with heart failure have shown that the use of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, in combination with a diuretic, causes a reduction in mortality and morbidity, which seems to be mainly due to a reduction in fatal and nonfatal cardiovascular events. Our aim was to determine whether 249 consecutive patients discharged from hospital with a primary diagnosis of heart failure were routinely being treated with an ACE inhibitor at an appropriate dose. At the time of admission to hospital, 91 (36.5%) were receiving a combination of a diuretic and an ACE inhibitor, 129 (51.8%) were receiving a diuretic alone, and 29 (11.6%) had not previously received either a diuretic or an ACE inhibitor. At the time of discharge from hospital all patients were on a diuretic and 144 (57.8%) were also receiving an ACE inhibitor. Although 41 patients (16.5%) had a relative or absolute contraindication for the use of an ACE inhibitor, 64 patients (25.7%) with no ...
β-Adrenergic desensitization has been suggested to represent an important mechanism of contractile dysfunction in heart failure.11 12 13 14 15 16 The diminished formation of the second-messenger cAMP after stimulation of cardiac β-adrenergic receptors is due to a decline in the number of β-adrenergic receptors,11 12 13 an uncoupling of β-adrenergic receptors, and an increase in inhibitory G protein α subunits.14 15 16 The underlying mechanism inducing these desensitization processes is an activation of the sympathetic nervous system and, in particular, sympathetic activation in the heart itself.2 Several reports indicate that β-adrenergic neuroeffector defects occur not only in terminal heart failure but also in hypertensive heart disease.37 These data have been obtained in rat models of hypertensive heart disease (eg, spontaneously hypertensive rats38 39 ), rat models of acquired forms of hypertension (eg, reduced renal mass,40 renal artery banding,40 41 and deoxycorticosterone ...

Stroke is the third commonest cause of adult death and the commonest cause of adult disability in the UK. Arterial stiffness is a recognised independent risk factor for cerebrovascular disease. Phase I of the thesis examines arterial stiffness in the context of stroke, evaluating its role as a risk factor and relevance to other abnormalities of cardiovascular regulation during the acute stroke phase. Central, but not peripheral, arterial stiffness was increased in acute ischaemic stroke, particularly in lacunar and atherothrombotic but not cardioembolic subtypes compared to matched controls. Prognostically-important haemodynamic parameters following stroke, for example impaired cardiac baroreceptor sensitivity and increased beat-to-beat blood pressure (BP) variability, were related to central arterial stiffness.;There is uncertainty over the treatment of elevated BP levels following acute stroke. Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEI) have not been tested in the immediate post-stroke ...

ACE inhibitor use was associated with lower mean grip strength at baseline (22.40 kg, 95% confidence interval (CI) = 21.89-22.91 vs 23.18 kg, 95% CI 23.02-23.34; P = .005) and greater mean annual change in number of chair stands (−0.182, 95% CI −0.217 to −0.147 vs −0.145, 95% CI −0.156 to −0.133; P = .05) than nonuse. Statin use was not significantly associated with baseline measures or mean annual change for any outcome. A subgroup analysis suggested that statin use was associated with less mean annual change in chair stands (P = .006) in the oldest women. ...
Both angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) reduce angiotensin action. Angiotensin, a powerful hormone, has many actions, the most important of which is constriction of small blood vessels, leading to a rise in blood pressure and therefore in the pressure of blood within the glomerular capillaries in the kidneys. Lowering this pressure may well be the mechanism by which these drugs tend to slow progression of kidney failure.. The effects of ACEIs differ from those of ARBs in several important respects. It is even conceivable that taking drugs from both classes is more effective than taking just one or the other alone. Unfortunately, side-to-side comparisons of these two classes of drugs have not been performed, because the drug industry has no interest in such trials. These drugs are also effective in reducing urinary protein excretion in the nephrotic syndrome, and they also slow progression of chronic renal failure even when added to a ...
I recently reviewed a paper that indicated that angiotensin blockade with an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) did not protect against the development of diabetic nephropathy in diabetic patients with normal renal function. Despite what that paper concluded angiotensin blockade with and an angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor offered protection.. Two papers in the July 7 Annals of Internal Medicine looked at the effect of ARBs in patients with renal disease. The first study included patients with high vascular risk but who did not have microalbuminuria; about a third were diabetic. In these patients the ARB telmisartan had no effect on major renal outcomes.. The second study was of normotensive diabetic patients. Candesartan (another ARB given at a maximum dose of 32 mg daily) did not prevent microalbuminuria in patients with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes. This makes three studies which indicate no salutary renal effect of ARBs.. The clinician is left wondering if ACE inhibitors are ...
Results of the present study, which was performed in a rat model of CHF, show that both early (7 days after MI) and delayed (3 months after MI) treatments with an ACE inhibitor increase survival and exert beneficial effects on cardiac hemodynamics and remodeling. Moreover, at 9 months after MI, the beneficial effects of the early and late treatments on cardiac hemodynamics (as assessed on the basis of decreased LVEDP and central venous pressure) and on cardiac remodeling (as assessed on the basis of the effect on hypertrophy, ventricular dilatation, and ventricular collagen accumulation) appear to be quantitatively similar. Thus, given the fact that the early treatment was initiated in a setting of moderate ventricular dysfunction and cardiac remodeling, whereas late treatment was initiated in a context of severe LV dysfunction and established remodeling, our experiments suggest that ACE inhibitors are capable of both preventing (in the case of early treatment) and reversing (in the case of late ...

Attempts to isolate and measurement of Val-Tyr were done from the short chain peptides that reduced blood pressure. The content of Val-Tyr was 51 mg per 100 g of the short chain peptides, represented 1.3% of the total ACE inhibitory activity of the short chain peptides. Isolated Val-Tyr was resistant to gastrointestinal proteases. ...
The results of this investigation support the hypothesis that higher levels of FGF-23 are associated with cardiovascular mortality and incident heart failure in patients with SIHD. Of note, akin to what has been observed for hs-CRP (25), risk was seen with plasma FGF-23 levels well within the observed range in the general population without known cardiovascular disease or renal impairment (7,15). We also show that FGF-23 provides incremental prognostic information even after adjusting for clinical risk factors, renal function, and cardiovascular biomarkers. Lastly, leveraging data from a randomized controlled trial, we demonstrate that patients with higher levels of FGF-23 received clinical benefit from ACE inhibitor therapy, independent of renal function.. FGF-23 is a phosphatonin that is synthesized and secreted by osteoblasts into the circulation. At normal levels, FGF-23 acts primarily in the kidney to maintain phosphate homeostasis by inducing urinary phosphate excretion (26,27). Elevated ...
The IUPHAR/BPS Guide to Pharmacology. Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 - M2: Angiotensin-converting (ACE and ACE2). Detailed annotation on the structure, function, physiology, pharmacology and clinical relevance of drug targets.
When first introduced in 1981, angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors were indicated only for treatment of refractory hypertension. Since then, they have been shown to reduce morbidity or mortality in congestive heart failure, myocardial infarction, diabetes mellitus, chronic renal insufficiency, and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Pathologies underlying these conditions are, in part, attributable to the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. Angiotensin II contributes to endothelial dysfunction. altered renal hemodynamics, and vascular and cardiac hypertrophy. ACE inhibitors attenuate these effects. Clinical outcomes of ACE inhibition include decreases in myocardial infarction (fatal and nonfatal), reinfarction, angina, stroke, end-stage renal disease, and morbidity and mortality associated with heart failure. ACE inhibitors are generally well tolerated and have few contraindications. (Am Fam Physician 2002;66:473.)

ACE inhibitors reduce the production of the enzyme angiotensin, which makes blood vessels constrict. ACE inhibitors allow blood vessels to expand so that blood can flow more easily and the heart can work more efficiently. Examples of commonly prescribed ACE inhibitors are benazepril, captopril, enalapril, lisinopril, and others.. Angiotensin II receptor blockers block the effects of angiotensin, preventing it from affecting the heart and blood vessels. Examples of angiotensin II receptor blockers are candesartan, losartan, telmisartan, valsartan, and others.. Pregnant women should not take ACE inhibitors or ARBs. These medicines can cause a risk of birth defects. If you have high blood pressure and plan to become pregnant or are pregnant, contact your healthcare provider right away.. ...
... (Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme) Inhibitors are drugs used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure. They stop the bodys ability to produce angiotensin II, a natural substance that causes blood vessels to tighten (contract). ACE inhibitors relax and expand (dilate) blood vessels, allowing blood to flow more easily. This increases the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart, making the heart work more easily and efficiently. (Also known as antihypertensive drugs.). ...
ACE inhibitors are medicines used to treat high blood pressure. ACE stands for angiotensin converting enzyme. New research suggests that ACE inhibitors may increase the risk of breast cancer recurrence.. A study found that women treated for early-stage breast cancer were more than 50% more likely to have the cancer come back (recur) if they were taking an ACE inhibitor compared to women who didnt take an ACE inhibitor. The research is published online in Breast Cancer Research and Treatment.. Researchers looked at the health histories of 1,779 women treated for early-stage breast cancer; 23% of the women at some point had taken an ACE inhibitor, a beta-blocker (another type of blood pressure medicine), or both to treat high blood pressure.. During more than 8 years of follow-up after breast cancer was diagnosed and treated, 229 of the women had a recurrence. The researchers compared the risk of recurrence between women treated with blood pressure medicines to women who never took these ...
We started with ACE inhibitor trials in the late 80s and 90s, and when compared to placebo, ACE inhibitors were shown to reduce not only mortality but also MI," lead investigator Sripal Bangalore, MD, New York University School of Medicine, told TCTMD. "In other words, they were shown to have a profound effect. And positive trials tend to have a long-lasting, lingering effect on everybody, including physicians and the guidelines.". ARBs emerged later, he noted, with randomized trials conducted between 2000 to 2010, but these clinical trials did not consistently show a mortality benefit compared with placebo. "This led many people to say, including the guideline writers, that ACE inhibitors are better and should be the frontline treatment," said Bangalore.. In the meta-analysis, published January 2016 in the Mayo Clinic Proceedings, the researchers studied 106 randomized trials that enrolled 254,301 patients without heart failure. Compared with placebo, treatment with an ACE inhibitor ...
Heart failure (HF), the common end stage of most forms of heart disease, afflicted 2.5% of the US population (2.7 million people) in 2006 and was the cause of death for almost 300 000 people in 2005. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute Framingham study has shown that 80% of men and 70% of women with HF under age 65 will die within 8 years.1 The estimated total cost of HF in 2009 is more than $37 billion.2. Clinical Perspective on p 527. By definition, the physiology of the most common form of HF, systolic HF (sHF), always includes an increase in both preload and afterload and a decrease in systolic left ventricular (LV) function. Current therapy for sHF includes diuretics, aldosterone antagonists, angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, angiotensin receptor inhibitors, and β-blockers. Whereas the control of loading conditions, for example, with diuretics and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, shows clinical benefits,3 improving the inotropic defect of the failing myocardium ...
The renin-angiotensin system (RAS) and angiotensin II, in particular, play a central role and have been implicated in the spectrum of cardiovascular disease (CVD), beginning with hypertension, diabetes mellitus, atherosclerosis, myocardial infarction (MI), strokes and heart failure.
