A Pilot Study Comparing Nebivolol and Atenolol and Its Effects With Exercise in Patients With Mild to Moderate Hypertension
The purpose of this study is to determine the effects on exercise capacity of nebivolol compared to atenolol in hypertensive patients.
This was a pilot, phase II, double-blind, randomized, muticenter, active-comparator, five treatment parallel group dosing and mechanistic study. The study consisted of two phases: 1) screen/washout/single-blind placebo run-in and 2) randomization/treatment. There was a minimum of five scheduled study visits.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A cardioselective beta-adrenergic blocker possessing properties and potency similar to PROPRANOLOL, but without a negative inotropic effect.
A condition in pregnant women with elevated systolic (>140 mm Hg) and diastolic (>90 mm Hg) blood pressure on at least two occasions 6 h apart. HYPERTENSION complicates 8-10% of all pregnancies, generally after 20 weeks of gestation. Gestational hypertension can be divided into several broad categories according to the complexity and associated symptoms, such as EDEMA; PROTEINURIA; SEIZURES; abnormalities in BLOOD COAGULATION and liver functions.
Hypertension due to RENAL ARTERY OBSTRUCTION or compression.
Increased pressure within the cranial vault. This may result from several conditions, including HYDROCEPHALUS; BRAIN EDEMA; intracranial masses; severe systemic HYPERTENSION; PSEUDOTUMOR CEREBRI; and other disorders.
A condition of markedly elevated BLOOD PRESSURE with DIASTOLIC PRESSURE usually greater than 120 mm Hg. Malignant hypertension is characterized by widespread vascular damage, PAPILLEDEMA, retinopathy, HYPERTENSIVE ENCEPHALOPATHY, and renal dysfunction.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of nebivolol on blood pressure and heart rate in African American patients with hypertension.
The purpose of this study is to conduct a randomised trial to compare the insulin sensitivity, 24 hour blood pressure profile, and tolerability of nebivolol plus a thiazide-like diuretic v...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of various doses of nebivolol in patients with mild to moderate hypertension.
The purpose of this study is to compare the tolerability of nebivolol to metoprolol ER in a populatoin of patients with mild to moderate hypertension also receiving hydrochlorothiazide (HC...
A study to compare the effects of Diovan or Atenolol taken for 12 weeks on platelet function of patients who have mild to moderately severe hypertension
An increase in blood pressure variability (BPV) contributes to the development of target organ damage associated with hypertension. Treatment with conventional β-blockers, such as atenolol, has been...
Nitric oxide (NO) deficiency contributes to chronic kidney disease progression. Nebivolol, a beta adrenergic receptor antagonist, may enhance endogenous NO. Here, we investigated whether Nebivolol att...
Purpose The pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, efficacy, safety, and place in therapy of nebivolol are reviewed. Summary Nebivolol, a third-generation, highly β(1)-specific β-blocker, is labeled for th...
INTRODUCTION: Only 50% of hypertensive patients receive an appropriate treatment to normalize blood pressure (BP). Although monotherapy is often adequate in normalizing BP, it is sometimes necessary t...
AIM: The role of atenolol, a non-vasodilating beta-blocker drug, on long-term mortality in hypertensive older adults is still unclear. The aim of the present study was to evaluate long-term mortality...
