Genetic Mechanisms in Human Hypertension Renin-angiotensin-aldosterone System (RAAS) Inhibition Study

2014-08-27 03:18:08 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to develop an approach to provide personalized medicine to individuals who have hypertension (high blood pressure). The investigators plan to use people's genetic characteristics (traits) to determine what medication they should use to lower their blood pressure most effectively. The investigators will give individuals one of two medications to treat hypertension (lisinopril or atenolol). The investigators believe that depending on the individuals genetic background one medication will work better in lowering their blood pressure.

Hypertension in Hemodialysis Patients (Aim 3)

We will directly test the hypothesis that an initial strategy of lisinopril-based therapy will be more effective than atenolol-based therapy in causing regression of LVH over one year in p...

Study to Compare the Effect of Valsartan vs Atenolol on Pro-Thrombotic State in Hypertensive Patients.

A study to compare the effects of Diovan or Atenolol taken for 12 weeks on platelet function of patients who have mild to moderately severe hypertension

Atenolol Exposure as Risk for Adverse Metabolic Responses to Beta Blockers

The researchers hypothesize that the impact of increasing systemic exposure to atenolol leads to increased risk for adverse metabolic effects from atenolol therapy in hypertension. This wi...

Cognitive/Cerebrovascular Consequences of HTN Treatment

Randomized trial of two antihypertensive drugs of known efficacy to investigate whether one has more favorable effects on brain blood flow and cognitive function.

Lisinopril, Amlodipine, Rosuvastatin as a Novel Fixed Combination in the Fight Against Cardiovascular Disease.

The prevalence of multicomponent therapy in treatment of cardiovascular diseases makes fixed combinations of drugs very useful. The fixed combination of rosuvastatin with ACE inhibitor lisinopril and ...

Effect of atenolol pre-treatment in heart damage in a model of intestinal ischemia-reperfusion.

Fast liquid chromatography for racemic atenolol acetate separation--The analytical protocol.

Kinetic resolution of (R,S)-atenolol is a faster strategy to produce (S)-atenolol. Since this racemate is a less soluble compound, resolution of its ester offers high concentrations in the process. A ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

One of the ANGIOTENSIN-CONVERTING ENZYME INHIBITORS (ACE inhibitors), orally active, that has been used in the treatment of hypertension and congestive heart failure.

A cardioselective beta-adrenergic blocker possessing properties and potency similar to PROPRANOLOL, but without a negative inotropic effect.

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.
