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.
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 ...
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.
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...
Abstract Japanese patients with uncontrolled essential hypertension received single-blind losartan 50 mg/hydrochlorothiazide 12.5 mg (L50/H12.5) for 8 weeks. Patients whose blood pressure (BP) rem...
The work was aimed at investigating the influence of diffusion of basis functions on the geometry optimization of molecule of losartan in acidic and salt form. Spectroscopic properties of losartan pot...
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...
After electroconvulsive treatment (ECT), headaches are a very frequent but underreported adverse effect. We conducted a study comparing the efficacy and tolerability of eletriptan versus paracetamol f...
Aim: The CYP2C9 IVS8-109T allele was recently found to be more frequent among Swedish individuals, who have the highest losartan metabolic ratio (MR; losartan:E-3174). Thus, the influence of the CYP2C...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
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.
