The effects on airway response of metoprolol OROS (oral osmotic) and three other long-acting beta-adrenoceptor blockers were studied. This was a placebo-controlled, randomized, five-period, single-blind, crossover trial in 15 healthy volunteers. Bronchial beta-blockade was estimated as the displacement of the salbutamol bronchodilator response of specific airway conductance (SGAW) measured by whole-body plethysmography. Metoprolol OROS (14/190 mg), slow-release (SR) metoprolol (200 mg), atenolol (100 mg), long-acting (LA) propranolol (160 mg), and placebo were given once daily for 7 days. Inhaled salbutamol was administered at peak drug levels in cumulative doses of 12.5 to 800 micrograms on day 5 and in a single dose of 400 micrograms on day 7. On day 5, salbutamol induced significant increases in SGAW in each treatment group. SGAW increased after the single dose of salbutamol on day 7 in all groups and then declined steadily. The highest values were found after placebo and metoprolol OROS, with smaller increases after SR metoprolol, atenolol, and LA propranolol, the latter showing the smallest increase. Therefore, it would appear that under steady-state conditions, beta 2-bronchial receptors are least blocked by metoprolol OROS, followed by SR metoprolol, atenolol, and LA propranolol.

Two newly synthesized chiral di-anionic counter ions were tested for enantiomeric resolution of a set of amino alcohols on porous graphitized carbon, Hypercarb. Z-L-Aspartyl-L-proline dissolved in methanol baseline resolved nine of 12 tested racemates. One of its diastereoisomers, Z-L-aspartyl-D-proline was also tested but resulted in low separation factors, <1.1. Sodium hydroxide was added to the mobile phase in order to titrate the counter ion to its mono- or di-anionic form. Results show that the di-anionic form was found to be superior to the mono-anionic form regarding enantioselectivity. Increased content of the counter ion in the mobile phase, with constant ratio between counter ion and sodium hydroxide concentration, decreased retention but only slightly affected enantioselectivity. Increased retention and enantioselectivity were observed with decreased column temperature. Resolution factors >3 were obtained between the enantiomers in atenolol and metoprolol with a total retention time of less than 15 min. Further, all four stereoisomers of an analogue to metoprolol were separated using Hypercarb and a mobile phase of 5 mM Z-L-aspartyl-L-proline and 9 mM sodium hydroxide in methanol.

An overview of the current pharmacotherapy of central vestibular syndromes and the most common forms of central nystagmus as well as cerebellar disorders is given. 4-aminopyridine (4-AP) is recommended for the treatment of downbeat nystagmus, a frequent form of acquired persisting fixation nystagmus, and upbeat nystagmus. Animal studies showed that this non-selective blocker of voltage-gated potassium channels increases Purkinje cell excitability and normalizes the irregular firing rate, so that the inhibitory influence of the cerebellar cortex on vestibular and deep cerebellar nuclei is restored. The efficacy of 4-AP in episodic ataxia type 2, which is most often caused by mutations of the PQ-calcium channel, was demonstrated in a randomized controlled trial. It was also shown in an animal model (the tottering mouse) of episodic ataxia type 2. In a case series, chlorzoxazone, a non-selective activator of small-conductance calcium-activated potassium channels, was shown to reduce the DBN. The efficacy of acetyl-DL-leucine as a potential new symptomatic treatment for cerebellar diseases has been demonstrated in three case series. The ongoing randomized controlled trials on episodic ataxia type 2 (sustained-release form of 4-aminopyridine vs. acetazolamide vs. placebo; EAT2TREAT), vestibular migraine with metoprolol (PROVEMIG-trial), cerebellar gait disorders (sustained-release form of 4-aminopyridine vs. placebo; FACEG) and cerebellar ataxia (acetyl-DL-leucine vs. placebo; ALCAT) will provide new insights into the pharmacotherapy of cerebellar and central vestibular disorders.

The use of metoprolol tartrate in this patient resulted in resolution of bilateral noninfectious uveitis. This is the first report of non-antiinfectious, antiinflammatory, or immunosuppressive drug effective for uveitis. It is possible that a subgroup of resistant uveitis may respond to drugs other than the traditional drugs, such as metoprolol, and that other forms of uveitis of unidentified origin exist.

After 6 months, the difference in the baseline-adjusted LV end diastolic volume between patients allocated to metoprolol and those allocated to placebo was 8 (95% CI -8 to 25) mL (p=0.32). The adjusted LV ejection fraction was 2.7 (95% CI 0.1 to 5.3) percentage points higher in the metoprolol group than in the placebo group (p=0.04). The exercise capacity and peak oxygen consumption did not differ between treatment arms. Serum concentrations of N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide were 138 (95% CI 71 to 205) pg/mL higher in the metoprolol group (p<0.001). There were no serious adverse events in either treatment arm.

Metoprolol induced a decrease in CPT-I activity and an increase in triglyceride content. These results suggest that the improved function observed with beta blockers in heart failure could be due, in part, to a decrease in CPT-I activity and less fatty acid oxidation by the heart.

beta-Adrenergic receptor blockade is one of the most effective treatments for heart failure, a leading cause of mortality worldwide. The use of beta-adrenergic receptor blockers in patients with heart failure is counterintuitive, however, because they are known to decrease contractility in normal hearts. The ryanodine receptor (RyR2) on cardiac sarcoplasmic reticulum is the key calcium release channel required for excitation-contraction coupling. In failing hearts, the stoichiometry and function of the RyR2 macromolecular complex is altered. Decreased levels of phosphatases (PP1 and PP2A) and hyperphosphorylation by protein kinase A result in dissociation of the regulatory protein FKBP12.6 and channels with increased open probability.

The effects of dobutamine on helical strips of isolated canine cerebral, coronary, mesenteric, and renal arteries was investigated. Dobutamine contracted only renal arterial strips under resting condition. When renal and mesenteric arterial strips were partially contracted with prostaglandin F2 alpha (PGF2 alpha), dobutamine caused further concentration-related contraction, while coronary arterial strips were relaxed. Cerebral arterial strips, on the other hand, did not significantly respond to dobutamine. After treatment with 10(-5) M dl-phenoxybenzamine hydrochloride (POB) for 1 h, dobutamine-induced contractions of partially precontracted mesenteric and renal arterial strips were converted to relaxations. Relaxations of coronary arteries were not potentiated by the alpha-antagonist, but were attenuated by treatment with 10(-6) M propranolol and 10(-6) M metoprolol to a similar extent. On the other hand, relaxations of mesenteric and renal arterial strips were not inhibited by metoprolol but by propranolol. Droperidol (3 X 10(-5) M) failed to significantly alter the concentration-response curve for dobutamine. These results suggest that dobutamine causes vasoconstriction mediated by apha-adrenergic receptor and vasodilatation mediated by beta 1- and beta 2-adrenoceptors. Dobutamine does not appear to act on dopamine receptors.

Myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury is a serious problem involved in cardiovascular diseases. There data which indicate that some steroids induce cardioprotective effects on myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury; however their activity and the molecular mechanism involved on myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury are very confusing. Therefore, in this study some estrogen derivatives (compound 3 to 7) were synthesized with the objective of evaluating its activity on myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury using an isolated heart model. Additionally, molecular mechanism involved in the activity exerted by the compounds 3 to 7 on perfusion pressure and coronary resistance was evaluated by measuring left ventricular pressure in absence or presence of following compounds; prazosin, metoprolol, indomethacin and nifedipine. The results showed that 7 reduce infarct size compared with the estrone and other estrogen derivatives (compounds 3, 4, 5, and 6). Other results showed that 7 significantly increase the perfusion pressure and coronary resistance in isolated heart in comparison with estrone, 3, 4, 5, and 6. Finally, other data indicate that 7 increased the left ventricular pressure in a dose-dependent manner; however, this phenomenon was significantly inhibited by nifedipine. In conclusion, all these data suggest that 7 exert a cardioprotective effect through calcium channels activation and consequently induce changes in the left ventricular pressure levels. This phenomenon results in decrease of myocardial necrosis after ischemia and reperfusion.

Oxygen free radicals play an important role in several physiologic and pathophysiologic processes. In pathophysiologic circumstances they can modify and damage biologic systems. Their functional properties (exposed to high oxygen tension) place red blood cells among the most susceptible cells to the harmful effect of free radicals. Because oxygen free radicals are involved in a wide range of diseases, scavenging these radicals should be an important therapeutic approach. In this study the antioxidant capacities of experimental and clinically used cardiovascular drugs were investigated. Phenazine methosulfate was used to generate free radicals and thus harden red blood cells. Filtration technique and potassium leaking were used to detect the scavenging effect of the examined drugs. The experimental drug H-2545 provided 43% protection against phenazine methosulfate-induced changes in red blood cell filterability (p < 0.001). Although some of the examined, clinically used cardiovascular drugs (carvedilol, metoprolol, verapamil, trimetazidine) also showed significant (p < 0.05) antioxidant effect, they were less efficient than H-2545. The scavenger effect of this novel drug exceeded the antioxidant properties of vitamin E. Modification of mexiletine with a pyrroline ring significantly improved its antioxidant capacity, suggesting that this molecular segment is responsible for the antioxidant effect.

We analyzed data from a large clinical registry to describe discharge heart rate as a function of β-blocker use and dose. We included patients with left ventricular ejection fraction <40% who were admitted with acute heart failure in 2003 and 2004; we excluded patients with a history of atrial arrhythmia or with a pacemaker or cardiac resynchronization therapy. We considered the β-blockers carvedilol, metoprolol succinate, bisoprolol, atenolol, and metoprolol tartrate and described discharge dose as a percentage of target dose (ie, <25%, 25%-49%, 50%-99%, and ≥100%).

Eight representative beta-adrenoreceptor blocking drugs, acebutolol, atenolol, labetalol, metoprolol, nadolol, pindolol, propranolol, and timolol, were studied in vitro with respect to their potential to block energy-dependent uptake of [3H]amantadine into proximal and distal rat renal tubule fragments in the presence and absence of bicarbonate. Five of the eight beta-adrenoreceptor blockers showed a dose-dependent inhibition of renal tubule accumulation of amantadine: labetalol, metoprolol, pindolol, propranolol, and timolol. Labetalol was the only beta-adrenoreceptor blocker with greater inhibitory potency in phosphate-based buffer than in bicarbonate-based buffer. Propranolol was the most potent inhibitor of renal tubule amantadine accumulation with IC50 values of 15 +/- 10 and 31 +/- 11 microM for proximal and distal tubule fragments, respectively, in a bicarbonate-based buffer environment. Inhibition in a phosphate-based buffer was less potent only in proximal tubules, with an IC50 of 76 +/- 30 microM. Kinetic studies of propranolol inhibition of amantadine uptake were consistent with both uncompetitive and competitive inhibition mechanisms in bicarbonate-based buffer in both proximal and distal renal tubule segments. There was no chiral preference between the R and S forms of propranolol for the inhibitory effects observed. These data suggest that there is potential for selection among the beta-adrenoreceptor blocking drugs to minimize or restrict the inhibition of amantadine energy-dependent uptake at the organic cation ion uptake sites characterized by amantadine in the presence and absence of bicarbonate.

H2-blocking agents, such as cimetidine or ranitidine are used in numerous patients. This treatment is often associated with the co-administration of a variety of other drugs. From clinical observations and pharmacokinetic studies it is obvious that even short-term treatment with therapeutic doses of cimetidine inhibits the hepatic elimination of antipyrine, warfarin, diazepam, desmethyldiazepam, chlordiazepoxide, propranolol, labetalol, metoprolol, phenytoin, carbamazepine, chlormethiazole, theophylline and caffeine. All these drugs are metabolized by cytochrome-dependent so-called phase I reactions. Cimetidine can interact with drug binding to the cytochrome P450 system leading to impaired drug metabolism. On the other hand drugs which are eliminated by glucuronidation (cytochrome independent phase II reaction), such as oxazepam and lorazepam are not affected by cimetidine. Other H2-blocking agents (ranitidine, oxmetidine) did not impair the elimination of antipyrine, warfarin, diazepam or propranolol. Furthermore, cimetidine and ranitidine might slightly reduce hepatic blood flow which could reduce the elimination of drugs with high hepatic clearance.

In TAC mice, the left ventricular weight-to-body weight (LVW/BW) ratio increased by 35% after 2 weeks. Levels of ANP, beta-MHC and skACT mRNA in the left ventricles increased 2.2-fold, 2.0-fold and 12.1-fold, respectively, whereas alpha-MHC and SERCA mRNA levels decreased by approximately 50%. Although propranolol blunted cardiomyocyte growth, with approximately an 11% increase in the LVW/BW ratio, it enhanced the expression of ANP, beta-MHC and skACT genes (10.5-fold, 27.7-fold and 22.7-fold, respectively). Propranolol also enhanced phenylephrine-stimulated ANP and beta-MHC gene expression in cultured cardiomyocytes. Similar results were obtained with metoprolol, a selective beta(1)-adrenoceptor antagonist, but not with ICI 118551, a beta(2)-adrenoceptor antagonist.

1. Adrenaline in a concentration of 1.0 microM depressed the stimulation-induced efflux of tritium from the guinea-pig atria incubated with [3H]-noradrenaline, whereas adrenaline in a concentration of 0.5 nM significantly enhanced the stimulation-induced efflux of tritium. This enhancement was blocked by metoprolol (0.1 microM) and thus appears to be mediated by beta-adrenoceptors. 2. In guinea-pig atria incubated with unlabelled adrenaline and then with [3H]-noradrenaline, both catecholamines were released by field stimulation. In such atria metoprolol, practolol, oxprenolol or propranolol decreased the stimulation-induced efflux of tritium. These effects did not occur if the atria were incubated with unlabelled noradrenaline and then with [3H]-noradrenaline, suggesting that neuronally released adrenaline activates prejunctional beta-adrenoceptors. 3. The effect of oxprenolol in decreasing the release of tritium from guinea-pig atria, incubated with unlabelled adrenaline and then with [3H]-noradrenaline was greater in the presence of phentolamine. This may reflect the alpha-adrenoceptor blocking activity of oxprenolol.

The effect of timolol on postganglionic cardiac sympathetic neural discharge, blood pressure, heart rate, and rhythm changes associated with acute coronary occlusion of the left anterior descending artery was examined and compared with the effects of the beta blockers practolol and metoprolol. Timolol (5 mg/kg, IV) was infused 15 minutes prior to coronary occlusion in cats anesthetized with alpha-chloralose. Control heart rate fell from 129 +/- 10 to 106 +/- 2 one minute prior to coronary occlusion and remained at 106 +/- 2 beats/minute in the minute prior to arrhythmia. Control blood pressure fell from 126 +/- 20 to 91 +/- 19 and stabilized at 99 +/- 19 mm Hg one minute prior to coronary occlusion. Mean time to arrhythmia and death was 4.7 +/- 2.3 and 68.0 +/- 51.0 minutes (P greater than .05 vs no drug), respectively. Three cats died and two were sacrificed six hours after coronary occlusion. Blood pressure fell to 86 +/- 20 mm Hg two minutes after coronary occlusion, rose to 95 +/- 23 mm Hg at ten minutes, and remained there for ten minutes. Timolol did not alter postganglionic cardiac sympathetic neural discharge prior to coronary occlusion. Two minutes after coronary occlusion, mean postganglionic cardiac sympathetic neural discharge was 128 +/- 27 and increased to 139 +/- 36 impulses/second (% control) 4 minutes after coronary occlusion. A similar trend was found for the data recorded in 15 nerves (eight cats) in which coronary occlusion was initiated without timolol. The data suggest that a difference exists among beta blockers because prior to coronary occlusion, the cardioselective drugs metoprolol (1, 5, and 10 mg/kg, IV) and practolol (8 mg/kg, IV) depressed postganglionic cardiac sympathetic neural discharge whereas noncardioselective timolol did not. Because all three beta blockers increased the times to arrhythmia and death (although the increase was significant only after metoprolol and practolol), the acute protective mechanism does not appear to be due primarily to a depression of spontaneous sympathetic neural discharge.

To determine whether the increase in renin secretion rate (RSR) produced by the beta 2-adrenoceptor agonist epinephrine was dependent on intact renal innervation, epinephrine (10 ng X kg-1 X min-1) was infused bilaterally into an innervated and a denervated kidney (ira) of the same anesthetized dog at spontaneous and reduced renal arterial pressure (decreases RAP, 100 mmHg). Epinephrine ira did not affect mean arterial pressure, renal hemodynamics, or urinary sodium excretion of either kidney. At spontaneous RAP epinephrine ira increased RSR from 633 +/- 134 to 926 +/- 137 ng/min in innervated kidneys but did not change RSR in denervated kidneys. decreases RAP in the presence of epinephrine ira resulted in an increase in RSR from 969 +/- 248 to 2,564 +/- 630 ng/min in innervated kidneys, which was greater than that produced in the absence of epinephrine, from 741 +/- 244 to 1,606 +/- 431 ng/min. In denervated kidneys decreases RAP resulted in similar increases in RSR in the absence and presence of epinephrine ira from 41 +/- 15 to 166 +/- 60 ng/min and from 59 +/- 210 to 235 +/- 78 ng/min, respectively. These results demonstrate that the increase in RSR produced by epinephrine is dependent on intact renal innervation at spontaneous and decreases RAP and suggest that epinephrine increases RSR by a prejunctional mechanism. The beta 1-adrenoceptor antagonist metoprolol (0.3-0.5 microgram X kg-1 X min-1 ira) abolished the enhanced RSR response to decreases RAP produced by epinephrine ira. Similarly, the beta 2-adrenoceptor antagonist ICI 118551 (0.005-0.25 microgram X kg-1 X min-1 ira) abolished the enhanced RSR response to decreases RAP produced by epinephrine.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

The (+)-stereoisomers of arylethanolamine beta adrenergic agonists and antagonists are usually much less active in biological systems than their corresponding (-)-forms. In the eye, however, prior physiological studies have shown that these (+)-stereoisomers are unexpectedly potent in altering intraocular pressure, results which could be due to a difference in distribution and metabolism or to a difference in receptor interaction. The present experiments evaluated six stereoisomeric pairs of beta adrenergic antagonists for their ability to block rabbit ciliary process and cardiac beta adrenergic receptors activating adenylate cyclase, in vitro, under conditions in which the effects of drug metabolism, distribution and membrane lipid solubility were minimized. In the heart, all six pairs of antagonists demonstrated the expected increased potency of (-)-forms, with isomeric activity ratios of: 33 for metoprolol, 44 for timolol; 48 for bunitrolol; 76 for t-butyl-betaxolol; 100 for t-butyl-didesmethyl-ICI-118,551; and 530 for betaxolol. Under identical assay conditions in the ciliary process, (+)-enantiomers were much more potent relative to (-)-forms, with isomeric activity ratios of: 0.82 for timolol; 3.3 for bunitrolol; 7.4 for t-butyl-didesmethyl-ICI-118,551; 10 for metoprolol; 16 for t-butyl-betaxolol; and 190 for betaxolol. With the exception of metoprolol, all (+)-enantiomers demonstrated a substantially higher absolute affinity for ciliary process receptors (known to be almost exclusively of the beta-2 subtype) than for cardiac receptors.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

The purpose of present research work was to design and optimize compression coated tablet to provide an immediate release of hydrochlorothiazide in stomach and extended release of metoprolol succinate in intestine. Compression coated tablet was prepared by direct compression method which consisted of metoprolol succinate extended release core tablet and hydrochlorothiazide immediate release coat layer. Barrier coating of Hydroxy Propyl Methyl Cellulose (HPMC) E15LV was applied onto the core tablets to prevent burst release of metoprolol succinate in acidic medium. A 32 full factorial design was employed for optimization of the amount of polymers required to achieve extended release of drug. The percentage drug release at given time Q3, Q6, Q10, Q22; were selected as dependent variables. Core and compression coated tablets were evaluated for pharmaco-technical parameters. In vitro drug release of optimized batch was found to comply with Pharmacopoeial specifications. Desired release of metoprolol succinate was obtained by suitable combination of HPMC having high gelling capacity and polyethylene oxide having quick gelling capacity. The mechanism of release of metoprolol succinate from all batches was anomalous diffusion. Optimised batch was stable at accelerated conditions up to 3 months. Thus, compression coated tablet of metoprolol succinate and hydrochlorothiazide was successfully formulated.

The structural secuelae of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is mostly dictated by buy lopressor left ventricular (LV) remodelling, leading to heart failure. Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1), matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and their tissue inhibitors (TIMPs) play a critical role in LV remodelling. β-blockers are first line therapy for AMI and heart failure; however, the mechanisms responsible for their benefits remain poorly understood. Different β-blocker agents have been shown to exert beneficial activities both in AMI and heart failure, however, their role in early remodelling after ischemia/reperfusion is to be fully elucidated. We sought to compare the effect of 2 of the most prescribed β-blocker agents in early markers of LV remodelling after AMI.

The question whether initial antihypertensive treatment with a beta-blocker prevents hypertensive complications better than initial treatment with a non-betablocker, mainly diuretic based treatment, has been studied in recent large-scale studies like the Medical Research Council (MRC) trial, the International Prospective Primary Prevention Study in Hypertension (IPPPSH), the Heart Attack Primary Prevention in Hypertension (HAPPHY) study and the Metoprolol Atherosclerosis Prevention in Hypertensives (MAPHY) study. The first three studies were unable to find a more beneficial effect buy lopressor of beta-blockers than of thiazide diuretics. The MAPHY study, however, found a lower total mortality, in the metoprolol treated group than in the diuretic treated. As the HAPPHY and MAPHY studies share a substantial part of patient-years and number of deaths, these diverging results have evoked confusion and debate. This paper presents the main results of both studies and discusses the possible reasons for the different outcome.

We describe a method using atomic force microscopy (AFM) to quantify the mechanobiological properties of pluripotent, stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes, including contraction force, rate, duration, and cellular elasticity. We measured beats from cardiomyocytes derived from induced pluripotent stem cells of healthy subjects and those with dilated cardiomyopathy, and from embryonic stem cell lines. We found that our AFM method could quantitate beat forces buy lopressor of single cells and clusters of cardiomyocytes. We demonstrate the dose-responsive, inotropic effect of norepinephrine and beta-adrenergic blockade of metoprolol. Cardiomyocytes derived from subjects with dilated cardiomyopathy showed decreased force and decreased cellular elasticity compared to controls. This AFM-based method can serve as a screening tool for the development of cardiac-active pharmacological agents, or as a platform for studying cardiomyocyte biology.

The sympathetic buy lopressor nervous system plays a fundamental role in the regulation of myocardial function. During chronic pressure overload, overactivation of the sympathetic nervous system induces the release of catecholamines, which activate β-adrenergic receptors in cardiomyocytes and lead to increased heart rate and cardiac contractility. However, chronic stimulation of β-adrenergic receptors leads to impaired cardiac function, and β-blockers are widely used as therapeutic agents for the treatment of cardiac disease. MicroRNA-133 (miR-133) is highly expressed in the myocardium and is involved in controlling cardiac function through regulation of messenger RNA translation/stability.

The efficacy and tolerability of ketanserin was compared with metoprolol in a double-blind parallel group study. After a 4-week placebo run-in on no treatment patients with a diastolic blood pressure (BP) of 95 mmHg or more received ketanserin 40 mg (n = 16) or metoprolol 100 mg (n = 17) twice daily. Blood pressure was measured in duplicate using a Hawksley random zero sphygmomanometer. Both blood pressure and heart rate were recorded after 5 min supine and 1 min standing. Patients visited after 2, 4, 8 and 12 weeks of treatment. Systolic, diastolic and mean arterial BPs, both supine and standing, were significantly reduced from week 2 by both treatments (P less than 0.05, Student's t-test). The mean (+/- s.e.m.) changes in supine BP at 3 months compared with baseline were -15.7 (3.6) mmHg systolic and -13.9 (2.7) mmHg diastolic in the ketanserin group and -26.6 (7.9) mmHg systolic and -15.2 (2.7) mmHg diastolic in buy lopressor the metoprolol group. There was a tendency for the fall in systolic BP to be greater in the metoprolol group, but this did not reach statistical significance except for the standing systolic BP at 1 month. Metoprolol caused a significant fall in heart rate compared with baseline values throughout the study, and the metoprolol group was significantly different from the ketanserin group at 2 months for the supine heart rate and at all time points for standing heart rate.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

The positive cardiac chronotropic effects of the antiarrhythmic compound, QX 572, in anaesthetized cats buy lopressor has been shown mainly to be due to a release of catecholamines from sympathetic nerve-endings. Furthermore, these undesired effects of QX 572 on heart rate were decreased by adrenergic beta blockade in the animals. In the present study it was found that an adrenergic beta-blockade did not reveal any cardiodepressive effects of QX 572, that in the normal animals might have been masked by the effects of the drug-induced catecholamine-release.

We compared the potency of 11 clinically available beta-blockers as antagonists of the positive inotropic effects of (-)-isoprenaline and CGP12177 on ferret ventricular myocardium. (-)-CGP12177, (-)-pindolol and (-)-alprenolol were non-conventional partial agonists with intrinsic activity of 0.7, 0.2 and 0.1 respectively. All beta-blockers antagonized in a concentration-dependent and surmountable manner the positive inotropic effects of both (-)-isoprenaline and CGP12177. The potency of each beta-blocker was consistently higher against (-)-isoprenaline than against CGP12177. Two groups of beta-blockers were identified. In one group the difference between the pK(B) values of blockade against (-)-isoprenaline and CGP12177 was 1.1 - 1.6 log units ((-)-alprenolol, (-)-pindolol, (-)-bupranolol, nadolol and carvedilol). In the other group the pK(B) difference was of 2.1 - 3.0 log units ((-)-atenolol, metoprolol, bisoprolol, sotalol, (-)-propranolol and (-)-timolol). The beta-blockers competed with (-)-[(125)I]-cyanopindolol for binding to ventricular beta(1)-adrenoceptors. The binding affinities correlated with the buy lopressor corresponding blocking potencies against (-)-isoprenaline. On average the pK(i) values were 0.5 log units smaller than the pK(B) values against (-)-isoprenaline but 1.6 log units greater than the pK(B) values against CGP12177. In ferret ventricle the effects of (-)-isoprenaline appear to be antagonized by beta-blockers through the state of the beta(1)-adrenoceptor for which (-)-[(125)I]-cyanopindolol and beta-blockers have high affinity. The cardiostimulant effects of CGP12177 appear to be mediated through a low-affinity state of the beta(1)-adrenoceptor for which beta-blockers have low affinity.

Several clinical studies have compared the anti-ischaemic properties of trimetazidine used as monotherapy with those of standard anti-anginal therapy. In the treatment of uncontrolled angina pectoris, the addition of a metabolic agent such as trimetazidine to existing therapy with a haemodynamic agent would appear to confer advantages over the addition of a second haemodynamic agent. Here we report the results of three studies buy lopressor conducted in Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary that provide additional evidence for the beneficial effects of combining trimetazidine with a conventional haemodynamic agent such as beta-blockers, long-acting nitrate or calcium channel blockers. This combination provided significant benefits in terms of improved exercise capacity and decreased number of angina attacks along with a good tolerability profile.

A total of 21 trials evaluated antihypertensive medications of various drug classes in 3454 hypertensive children with periods of follow-up ranging from three to 24 weeks. There were five RCTs comparing an antihypertensive drug directly with placebo, 12 dose-finding trials, two trials comparing calcium channel blockers with angiotensin receptor blockers, one trial comparing a centrally acting alpha blocker with a diuretic and one trial comparing an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor with an angiotensin receptor blocker. No randomised trial was identified that evaluated the effectiveness of antihypertensive medications on target end organ damage. The trials were of variable quality and most were funded by pharmaceutical companies.Among the angiotensin receptor blockers, candesartan (one trial, n = 240), when compared to placebo, reduced systolic blood pressure by 6.50 mmHg (95% confidence interval (CI) -9.44 to -3.56) and diastolic blood pressure by 5.50 mmHg (95% CI -9.62 to -1.38) (low-quality evidence). High dose telmisartan (one trial, n = 76), when compared to placebo, reduced systolic blood pressure by -8.50 (95% CI -13.79 to -3.21) but not diastolic blood pressure (-4.80, 95% CI -9.50 to 0.10) (low-quality evidence). Beta blocker (metoprolol, one trial, n = 140), when compared with placebo , significantly reduced systolic blood pressure by 4.20 mmHg (95% CI -8.12 to -0.28) but not diastolic blood pressure (-3.20 mmHg 95% CI -7.12 to 0.72) (low-quality evidence). Beta blocker/diuretic combination (Bisoprolol/hydrochlorothiazide, one trial, n = 94)when compared with placebo , did not result in a significant reduction in systolic blood pressure (-4.0 mmHg, 95% CI -8.99 to -0.19) but did have an effect on diastolic blood pressure (-4.50 mmHg, 95% CI -8.26 to -0.74) (low-quality evidence). Calcium channel blocker (extended-release felodipine,one trial, n = 133) was not effective in reducing systolic blood pressure (-0. Cymbalta 10 Mg 62 mmHg, 95% CI -2.97 to 1.73) or diastolic blood pressure (-1.86 mmHg, 95% CI -5.23 to 1.51) when compared with placebo. Further, there was no consistent dose response observed among any of the drug classes. The adverse events associated with the antihypertensive agents were mostly minor and included headaches, dizziness and upper respiratory infections.

Smoking and stress, pancreatic cancer (PanCa) risk factors, stimulate nitrosamine 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (NNK) and catecholamines production respectively. NNK and catecholamine bind the β-adrenoceptors and induce PanCa cell proliferation; and we have previously suggested that β-adrenergic antagonists may suppress proliferation and invasion and stimulate apoptosis in PanCa. To Lopid Tabs clarify the mechanism of apoptosis induced by β2-adrenergic antagonist, we hypothesize that blockage of the β2-adrenoceptor could induce G1/S phase arrest and apoptosis and Ras may be a key player in PanCa cells.
