Potential Vascular Mechanisms of Ramipril Induced Increases in Walking Ability in Patients with Intermittent Claudication.

We recently reported that ramipril more than doubled walking times in peripheral artery disease patients with intermittent claudication.

Examining vascular remodeling in the hypoxic central nervous system.

The goal of this chapter is to highlight techniques used to determine the role of molecular mechanisms involved in remodeling of cerebral blood vessels. Enhanced vascularization in the central nervous...

Effects of a combination of losartan and hydrochlorothiazide in patients with hypertension and a history of heart failure.

Objectives: To evaluate the switching from an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) to a drug combination containing an ARB and a diuretic drug in terms of effects on hypertension, cardiac load, and card...

Impact of S-Adenosylmethionine Decarboxylase 1 in Pulmonary Vascular Remodeling.

Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a life-threatening disease characterized by vascular remodeling and increased pulmonary vascular resistance. Chronic alveolar hypoxia in animals is often used to deciphe...

Effects of licochalcon A on the pharmacokinetics of losartan and its active metabolite, EXP-3174, in rats.

Losartan and licochalcon A interact with cytochrome P-450 (CYP) enzymes and P-glycoprotein (P-gp), and the increase in the use of health supplements may result in licochalcon A being taken concomitant...

Clinical Trials [2600 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Telmisartan and Losartan in Hypertensive IGT

Inhibition of RAS delays onset of diabetes in clinical studies. Preliminary evidence suggests that telmisartan may have unique metabolic properties compared to other ARB due to activation...

Losartan Therapy in Pulmonary Hypertension

In addition to being effective vasodilators, angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) exert neurohumoral inhibitory actions, such as the in...

The Effect of Losartan and Losartan Plus Isosorbide Mononitrate on Central Blood Pressure Measurements

This study will qualify a functional model that can measure central blood pressure and vascular compliance effects through noninvasive means.

Ramipril in Rheumatoid Arthritis

The present study is designed to evaluate the hypothesis that the Angiotensin‐Converting Enzyme (ACE) inhibitor Ramipril improves vascular function and reduces markers of low-grade chron...

PPARgamma Activation by Losartan in Hypertensive Patients: The Importance of Losartan-Metabolites

The purpose of this study is to determine whether losartan metabolites are effective in inducing PPARγ target genes in monocytes in losartan-treated patients.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.

Unique slender cells with multiple processes extending along the capillary vessel axis and encircling the vascular wall, also called mural cells. Pericytes are imbedded in the BASEMENT MEMBRANE shared with the ENDOTHELIAL CELLS of the vessel. Pericytes are important in maintaining vessel integrity, angiogenesis, and vascular remodeling.

A enzyme complex involved in the remodeling of NUCLEOSOMES. The complex is comprised of at least seven subunits and includes both histone deacetylase and ATPase activities.

The continuous turnover of bone matrix and mineral that involves first, an increase in resorption (osteoclastic activity) and later, reactive bone formation (osteoblastic activity). The process of bone remodeling takes place in the adult skeleton at discrete foci. The process ensures the mechanical integrity of the skeleton throughout life and plays an important role in calcium homeostasis. An imbalance in the regulation of bone remodeling's two contrasting events, bone resorption and bone formation, results in many of the metabolic bone diseases, such as OSTEOPOROSIS.

A long-acting angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor. It is a prodrug that is transformed in the liver to its active metabolite ramiprilat.
