Candesartan Versus Propranolol for Migraine Prevention

01:58 EDT 1st October 2014 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The main aim of the present study is to compare candesartan with propranolol for migraine prophylaxis.

Description

Candesartan was shown to be effective for migraine prophylaxis in a randomized double blind cross-over study published in 2003. The drug is now widely used for this purpose in many countries, although no confirmatory study has been published. The aims of the present study are: 1) to see if the results in the first candesartan study can be replicated in a new patient population, including patients with chronic migraine, and, 2) to perform a head-to-head comparison of candesartan 16 mg/day with standard treatment with propranolol 160 mg slow release. We also intend to study whether responsiveness to these drugs may be related to heart rate variability and baroreceptor sensitivity.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A widely used non-cardioselective beta-adrenergic antagonist. Propranolol has been used for MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; ARRHYTHMIA; ANGINA PECTORIS; HYPERTENSION; HYPERTHYROIDISM; MIGRAINE; PHEOCHROMOCYTOMA; and ANXIETY but adverse effects instigate replacement by newer drugs.

An envelope of loose gel surrounding a bacterial cell which is associated with the virulence of pathogenic bacteria. Some capsules have a well-defined border, whereas others form a slime layer that trails off into the medium. Most capsules consist of relatively simple polysaccharides but there are some bacteria whose capsules are made of polypeptides.

A beta-adrenergic antagonist similar in action to PROPRANOLOL. The levo-isomer is the more active. Timolol has been proposed as an antihypertensive, antiarrhythmic, antiangina, and antiglaucoma agent. It is also used in the treatment of MIGRAINE DISORDERS and tremor.

Tablets coated with material that delays release of the medication until after they leave the stomach. (Dorland, 28th ed)

Completed forms of the pharmaceutical preparation in which prescribed doses of medication are included. They are designed to resist action by gastric fluids, prevent vomiting and nausea, reduce or alleviate the undesirable taste and smells associated with oral administration, achieve a high concentration of drug at target site, or produce a delayed or long-acting drug effect. They include CAPSULES; LINIMENTS; OINTMENTS; PHARMACEUTICAL SOLUTIONS; POWDERS; TABLETS; etc.
