Efficacy of Rostafuroxin in the Treatment of Essential Hypertension

2014-08-27 03:40:59 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to verify the efficacy of Rostafuroxin in the treatment of essential hypertension and to determine the best effective dose to be administered in the general hypertensive population and in a subset of this population in which genetic patterns could be involved in the etiology of essential hypertension.

Description

Elevated arterial pressure is probably the most important public health problem. about 30% of the world adult population are affected by hypertension in industrialised countries. Development of a pharmacogenomic approach to the therapy of primary hypertension give new opportunities for the treatment of hypertension. This approach consists in the identification of the genetic-molecular mechanisms responsible for hypertension in a given subset of patients, and in the development of drugs able to interfere with such mechanisms, thus leading to very selective therapeutic interventions with enhanced efficacy and reduced side effects.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Hypertension that occurs without known cause, or preexisting renal disease. Associated polymorphisms for a number of genes have been identified, including AGT, GNB3, and ECE1. OMIM: 145500

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.

The active metabolite of ENALAPRIL and a potent intravenously administered angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor. It is an effective agent for the treatment of essential hypertension and has beneficial hemodynamic effects in heart failure. The drug produces renal vasodilation with an increase in sodium excretion.

A selective serotonin receptor antagonist with weak adrenergic receptor blocking properties. The drug is effective in lowering blood pressure in essential hypertension. It also inhibits platelet aggregation. It is well tolerated and is particularly effective in older patients.
