The purpose of this study is to compare the vascular effects of two commonly used blood pressure medications, carvedilol and metoprolol in hypertensive patients with type 2 diabetes.
To evaluate the effects of two different antihypertensive medications in the drug class of beta-blockers on control of glucose in Type II diabetic patients with high blood pressure.
Metoprolol succinate is a beta1-selective beta-blocker, becoming non-selective at higher doses, while carvedilol is non-selective. We examined whether metoprolol remained beta1-selective ...
This study looks at the effect of two drugs (carvedilol and metoprolol) which are used for patients with CHF (chronic heart failure). These agents are beta-blockers and, although effectiv...
Postoperative new-onset atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common complication stemming from coronary artery bypass graft surgery, and is associated with increased early and late morta...
Despite the availability of many antihypertensive drug classes, half of patients with hypertension have uncontrolled blood pressure (BP). The authors sought to assess the effect of age on BP response ...
Mutations in amyloid precursor protein (APP) and presenilin1 result in overproduction and accumulation of β-amyloid (Aβ) peptide, which has been shown to play an important role in Alzheimer's diseas...
Dronedarone is a CYP2D6 inhibitor; therefore, it is prudent to exercise caution when concurrently administering CYP2D6-metabolized β-blockers because of a lack of published data on potential drug int...
Recent studies suggest that the β-blocker drug carvedilol prevents skin carcinogenesis but the mechanism is unknown. Carvedilol is one of a few β-blockers identified as biased agonist based on an ab...
To investigate the effects of carvedilol on inflammation, apoptosis, and hepatic fibrosis caused by biliary cirrhosis and its mechanisms in mice.
A selective adrenergic beta-1-blocking agent with no stimulatory action. It's binding to plasma albumin is weaker than alprenolol and it may be useful in angina pectoris, hypertension, or cardiac arrhythmias.
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.
Increased pressure within the cranial vault. This may result from several conditions, including HYDROCEPHALUS; BRAIN EDEMA; intracranial masses; severe systemic HYPERTENSION; PSEUDOTUMOR CEREBRI; and other disorders.
Familial or idiopathic hypertension in the PULMONARY CIRCULATION which is not secondary to other disease.
