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 objective of this study was to compare the antihypertensive effects of 3 types of antihypertensive drug regimens between different salt intake levels. The 180 patients with mild to moderate primar...
The aim of the present research work is to develop carbo-protein polymeric complex based sustain release microspheres of losartan potassium and investigate the ability of this dosage form to improve t...
Hydrochlorothiazide has never been reported as a reason for myopericarditis. An African American female, with past history of hypertension, coronary artery disease, and sulfa allergy, presented with i...
To determine usefulness and versatility of hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) relative to other thiazide diuretics in the treatment of hypertension.
Losartan inhibits the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system by blocking the angiotensin II receptor. It is commonly used in cardiovascular diseases, such as hypertension. Several publications applied t...
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.
