Effects of Nebivolol on Exercise Tolerance and Left Ventricular Systolic and Diastolic Function

2014-08-27 03:16:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The goal of this pilot study is to effectively treat hypertension in subjects with either known or newly diagnosed hypertension and concurrent evidence of diastolic dysfunction. In patients with predominantly diastolic heart failure it is hypothesized that by using more robust echocardiographic measures of diastolic dysfunction, significant changes will be detected. Furthermore, due to the unique properties of nebivolol it is also hypothesized that there will be improvements in LV function manifesting as increased exercise capacity as well as LVH regression as measured by echocardiography. The investigators hope to reproduce the findings shown in a prior study that showed increased stroke volume and preservation of CO in subjects receiving nebivolol.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A cardioselective ADRENERGIC BETA-1 RECEPTOR ANTAGONIST (beta-blocker) that functions as a VASODILATOR through the endothelial L-arginine/ NITRIC OXIDE system. It is used to manage HYPERTENSION and chronic HEART FAILURE in elderly patients.

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.

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

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.
