The purpose of this study is to test the safety and effectiveness of Losartan as compared to Losartan/HCTZ in pediatric patients (6 to 17 years) with high blood pressure.
BP-EASE -Effectiveness of Losartan 50 mg/Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) 12.5 mg Versus Valsartan 80 mg/HCTZ 12.5 mg Titrated as Needed in Patients With Essential Hypertension Not Controlled on Monotherapy
To evaluate the blood pressure efficacy between losartan and valsartan at equivalent dosage during a 3 months treatment.
This study will qualify a functional model that can measure central blood pressure and vascular compliance effects through noninvasive means.
After a 4 week placebo period, patients were randomized to Placebo or Losartan 50 mg arms, after 6 weeks non-responders were up titrated to 100 mg losartan for the remaining 6 weeks. This ...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the magnitude and durations of the antihypertensive effects of losartan using ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM), and to evaluate the saf...
The aim of the study is to compare the effects of hydrochlorothiazide and indapamide on the kidney in hypertensive patients inadequately controlled with losartan.
Losartan is under evaluation for managing Marfan patients with aortic root dilatation. Cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes convert losartan to E3174 active metabolite. The aim of this study is to describe t...
Angiotensin II type 1 receptor blocker losartan has shown strongly anti-insulin resistance properties in vivo and in vitro; however, the underlying mechanisms are poorly understood. In this study, we ...
Kawasaki disease (KD) is a common systemic vasculitis that leads to coronary artery lesions (CALs). Besides its antihypertensive effects, losartan can modulate inflammation in cardiovascular disease. ...
To examine the effects of losartan on scar formation after trabeculectomy and on fibrotic changes of human Tenon's fibroblasts (HTFs).
An antagonist of ANGIOTENSIN TYPE 1 RECEPTOR with antihypertensive activity due to the reduced pressor effect of ANGIOTENSIN II.
Agents that antagonize ANGIOTENSIN II TYPE 1 RECEPTOR. Included are ANGIOTENSIN II analogs such as SARALASIN and biphenylimidazoles such as LOSARTAN. Some are used as ANTIHYPERTENSIVE AGENTS.
A thiazide diuretic often considered the prototypical member of this class. It reduces the reabsorption of electrolytes from the renal tubules. This results in increased excretion of water and electrolytes, including sodium, potassium, chloride, and magnesium. It is used in the treatment of several disorders including edema, hypertension, diabetes insipidus, and hypoparathyroidism.
Stable potassium atoms that have the same atomic number as the element potassium, but differ in atomic weight. K-41 is a stable potassium isotope.
A delayed rectifier subtype of shaker potassium channels that is the predominant VOLTAGE-GATED POTASSIUM CHANNEL of T-LYMPHOCYTES.
