The studied cohort consisted of 11 patients with CGN, hypertension and proteinuria > 400 mg/24 h. Four drugs were given for 4 weeks, doubly blinded and randomized according to a "Latin-square design": Celiprolol (beta-1-antagonist, beta-2-agonist, 200 mg/d), Atenolol (selective beta-1-antagonist, 50 mg/d), Ramipril (ACE-inhibitor, 2.5 mg/d) and placebo. There was a two-week wash-out phase between each of the four treatment phases. At the end of each treatment phase glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and effective renal plasma flow (ERPF) were measured by inulin and para-amino-hippuric acid (PAH) clearance. Proteinuria was determined in the course of a three-day collection period at the end of each treatment phase. During this period blood pressures were measured with a continuous 24-hour blood pressure monitor.

We have previously shown that transplantation of kidneys from genetically hypertensive to normotensive rats result in hypertension in renal graft recipients. To investigate whether this posttransplantation hypertension may have been the result of damage to the renal graft by high perfusion pressure before transplantation, we normalized blood pressure throughout life in spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHR) kidney donors by continuous antihypertensive treatment with the angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor ramipril (1 in drinking fluid). When kidneys from these rats were transplanted at age 20 wk to age-matched bilaterally nephrectomized F1 hybrids bred from SHR and Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) parents, posttransplantation hypertension still developed. In contrast, blood pressure did not change significantly in recipients of kidneys from ramipril-treated WKY rats. In the initial phase, recipients of SHR kidneys had a lower body weight and higher plasma urea concentrations than recipients of WKY kidneys. However, in the chronic phase, there were no significant differences between the two groups with respect to daily water intake, plasma urea concentration, glomerular filtration rate, renal blood flow, and weight of transplanted kidneys; no histological differences were observed between renal grafts from WKY and SHR donors, except for structural vascular hypertrophy in the latter group. We conclude that posttransplantation hypertension in recipients of SHR kidney grafts also develops, when the grafts have not been subjected to high renal perfusion pressure before transplantation. Our data support the hypothesis that SHR kidneys carry a primary defect, which can induce hypertension in renal graft recipients.

Twenty-nine patients with LV ejection fraction <40% received the ACE inhibitor ramipril (range 2.5 to 20 mg/day) within 5 days of their first Q-wave MI. Magnetic resonance imaging was performed at baseline and at 3 months, providing global and regional LV volumes and mass from summated serial short-axis slices. Mean arterial blood pressure was unchanged from baseline to 3-month follow-up (89 +/- 10 to 92 +/- 17 mm Hg). LV mass decreased (90 +/- 25 to 77 +/- 21 gm/m2, p < 0.0005) as LV end-diastolic volumes increased (65 +/- 13 to 73 +/- 22 ml/m2, p < 0.01). Global LV mass to volume ratio decreased from 1.40 +/- 0.28 to 1.08 +/- 0.18 gm/ml (p < 0.0001), as did circumferential wall thickness to volume ratio of noninfarcted myocardium at the base of the LV (0.06 +/- 0.02 to 0.05 +/- 0.02 mm/ml, p < 0.001). LV ejection fraction increased from 35 +/- 6 to 40 +/- 9% (p < 0.001) in the presence of an increase in calculated end-systolic wall stress (185 +/- 57 to 227 +/- 54 gm/cm2, p < 0.01).

In placebo-treated MI rats, six weeks after MI, left ventricular circumference, inner diameter, and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure (LVEDP) were increased, whereas mean arterial blood pressure (MAP) and maximum rate of rise of left ventricular pressure (dp/dt(max)) were decreased compared with sham-operated controls (P<0.01). In ramipril-treated MI rats, heart weight, heart weight to body weight ratio and interstitial collagen content were reduced (P<0.05, P<0.01), LVEDP was slightly decreased (P>0.05), and dp/dt(max) was improved (P<0.01) compared with placebo-treated MI rats. In contrast, in mibefradil-treated MI rats, heart weight, heart weight to body weight ratio were slightly but not significantly reduced, LVEDP was slightly elevated compared with placebo-treated MI rats, and was elevated (P<0.05) compared with ramipril-treated MI rats, although interstitial collagen content were reduced (P<0.01) compared with placebo-treated MI rats.

We estimated the cost effectiveness of adding the ACE inhibitor ramipril to conventional treatment in patients with heart failure after acute myocardial infarction. These estimates were based on the Acute Infarction Ramipril Efficacy (AIRE) study and on complementary Swedish healthcare resource use data for a subset of patients. The average follow-up period was 15 months (minimum 6 months, maximum 3.8 years). The perspective of the analysis was that of the county councils (third-party payers), and we focused on the cost of drugs and hospitalisation. The marginal cost effectiveness of the treatment was estimated over 3 treatment periods: 1, 2 and 3.8 years. The cost-effectiveness ratios varied between SEK14,148 and SEK33,033 per life-year gained ($US1 = SEK7.70. Pounds 1 = SEK12.40) for the 3 treatment periods. Adding ramipril to conventional treatment for heart failure after acute myocardial infarction is therefore cost effective, and compares favourably with the cost effectiveness of other common medical therapies in the cardiovascular field.

Seventeen patients were enrolled into the study. Mean age at study enrollment was 26.4+/-5.2 years. Mean baseline RVEF was 44+/-6.5%, mean RVEDV was 206.3+/-75.5 ml. Eight patients were randomized to the treatment group and 9 patients were randomized to the placebo group. RVEF did not improve in the Ramipril group from baseline to 1 year (43.8+/-7.1% vs. 40.9+/-13.3%, p=0.52) and remain unchanged in the placebo group (44.3+/-6.3 vs. 46.3+/-9.6%, p=0.42). RVEDV (184.5+/-56.4 ml vs. 179.6+/-66.4 ml, p=0.64) and RVESV (109.5+/-19.4 ml vs. 111.8+/-30.1, p=0.74) remained unchanged in the Ramipril group from baseline to 1 year as well as in the placebo group (228.1+/-89.2 ml vs. 204.5+/-50.4 ml, p=0.42 and 117.5+/-36.9 ml vs. 117.4+/-26.2 ml, p=0.99, respectively).

The effect of various doses of the new angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor HOE 498 was compared with that of placebo in patients with mild essential hypertension. When a single dose of 2.5 mg of the drug was given, blood pressure was not significantly reduced despite a fall in converting enzyme levels. Single doses of 5 or 10 mg did reduce blood pressure, but complete inhibition of converting enzyme was apparent only with the 10-mg dose. Acute administration of a 20-mg dose proved to be unsuitable, since this was associated with too large a fall in pressure and the occurrence of symptomatic orthostatic hypotension. Although converting enzyme and blood pressure tended to recover in part 12 h after administration of the drug, both variables remained low even after 48 h.

Captopril, enalapril, lisinopril, ramipril, cilazipril, and quinipril have all been documented to induce cough with an estimated frequency of at least 15% of treated patients. Common descriptors include tickling, dry, nonproductive, and persistent. Onset usually occurs during the first week of therapy and lasts as long as the drug is taken, remitting within a few days after the agent is discontinued. Alternative angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors replicate the cough. The mechanism seems related to stimulation of lung afferent C fibers, perhaps by prostaglandin E2. It may also be related to decreased breakdown of substance P, the neurochemical mediator of the cough reflex released in response to stimulation of C fibers and metabolized by ACE. The possible role of prostaglandins is supported by two anecdotal reports of cough disappearing in patients receiving nonsteroidal antiinflammatory agents. Future trials should recognize cough as a side effect of ACE inhibitor therapy, and prospective determination of its true frequency and cross-occurrence are necessary.

There were 276 hip and pelvic fractures during a mean of 4.6 years of follow-up. Participants with baseline albuminuria had a significantly increased risk of fracture compared with participants without albuminuria (unadjusted hazard ratio=1.62 [1.22, 2.15], P<0.001; adjusted hazard ratio=1.36 [1.01, 1.84], P=0.05). A dose-dependent relationship was observed, with macroalbuminuria having a large fracture risk (unadjusted hazard ratio=2.01 [1.21, 3.35], P=0.007; adjusted hazard ratio=1.71 [1.007, 2.91], P=0.05) and microalbuminuria associating with borderline or no statistical significance (unadjusted hazard ratio=1.52 [1.10, 2.09], P=0.01; adjusted hazard ratio=1.28 [0.92, 1.78], P=0.15). Estimated GFR was not a predictor of fracture in any model, but rapid loss of estimated GFR over the first 2 years of follow-up predicted subsequent fracture (adjusted hazard ratio=1.47 [1.05, 2.04], P=0.02).

Na+-H+ exchanger isoform-1 and NBC-1 gene expression were determined by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction and Northern blot analysis; protein levels by Western blot analysis; and activity by measurement of H+ transport in left ventricular (LV) free wall, interventricular septum (IS) and right ventricle (RV) after induction of MI. Rats were treated with placebo, the angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor ramipril (1 mg/kg/day), the AT1 receptor antagonist valsartan (10 mg/kg/day) or the AT2 receptor antagonist PD 123319 (30 mg/kg/day). Treatment was started seven days before surgery.

Inhibitors of the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) decrease angiotensin II production and activate an intracellular signaling cascade that affects gene expression in endothelial cells. Because ACE inhibitors have been reported to delay the onset of type 2 diabetes, we determined ACE signaling-modulated gene expression in endothelial cells and adipocytes. Using differential gene expression analysis, several genes were identified that were 3-fold up- or down-regulated by ramiprilat in cells expressing wild-type ACE versus cells expressing a signaling-dead ACE mutant. One up-regulated gene was the cellular retinol-binding protein 1 (CRBP1). In adipocytes, the overexpression of CRBP1 enhanced (4- to 5-fold) the activity of promoters containing response elements for retinol-dependent nuclear receptors [retinoic acid receptor (RAR) and retinoid X receptor (RXR)] or peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPAR). CRBP1 overexpression also enhanced the promoter activity (by 470 +/- 40%) and expression/release of the anti-inflammatory and antiatherogenic adipokine adiponectin (cellular adiponectin by 196 +/- 24%, soluble adiponectin by 228 +/- 74%). Significantly increased adiponectin secretion was also observed after ACE inhibitor treatment of human preadipocytes, an effect prevented by small interfering RNA against CRBP1. Furthermore, in ob/ob mice, ramipril markedly potentiated both the basal (approximately 2-fold) and rosiglitazonestimulated circulating levels of adiponectin. In patients with coronary artery disease or type 2 diabetes, ACE inhibition also significantly increased plasma adiponectin levels (1.6- or 2.1-fold, respectively). In summary, ACE inhibitors affect adipocyte homeostasis via CRBP1 through the activation of RAR/RXR-PPAR signaling and up-regulation of adiponectin. The latter may contribute to the beneficial effects of ACE inhibitors on the development of type 2 diabetes in patients with an activated renin-angiotensin system.

The study was stopped 6 months early (after 4.5 years) by the independent data safety and monitoring board because of a consistent benefit of ramipril compared with placebo. Ramipril lowered the risk of the combined primary outcome by 25% (95% CI 12-36, p=0.0004), myocardial infarction by 22% (6-36), stroke by 33% (10-50), cardiovascular death by 37% (21-51), total mortality by 24% (8-37), revascularisation by 17% (2-30), and overt nephropathy by 24% (3-40, p=0.027). After adjustment for the changes in systolic (2.4 mm Hg) and diastolic (1.0 mm Hg) blood pressures, ramipril still lowered the risk of the combined primary outcome by 25% (12-36, p=0.0004).

DNA damage in the peripheral blood leukocytes (PBL) of patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) was investigated using the sensitive alkaline single cell gel electrophoresis (SCGE)/comet assay.This case-control study consisted of CAD patients (n = 200; mean age, 59.04 ± 0.75 years) undergoing treatment at local hospitals and age-, sex-, and ethnicity-matched healthy controls (n = 200; mean age, 57.88 ± 0.96 years) from the general population.CAD patients had significantly (P < 0.001) increased DNA damage (tail DNA percent (T-DNA %) 22.45 ± 0.50 versus 5.81 ± 0.28; tail moment (TM) 89.35 ± 3.16 versus 9.98 ± 0.69; Olive tail moment (OTM) 60.50 ± 1.79 versus 10.94 ± 0.63; damage frequency (DF) 91.12 ± 0.93 versus 41.78 ± 2.04, damage index (DI) 173.68 ± 3.36 versus 48.53 ± 2.59) compared to controls. Patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) showed significantly higher DNA damage than patients with unstable angina (UA) (T-DNA % 24.05 ± 0.87 versus 21.06 ± 0.90; TM 100.02 ± 6.19 versus 81.61 ± 5.84; OTM 66.19 ± 3.20 versus 56.47 ± 3.33; DF 94.02 ± 0.84 versus 91.10 ± 1.16, DI 184.13 ± 5.33 versus 166.42 ± 5.89). Moreover, DNA damage was found to be significantly (P < 0.05) elevated in patients receiving ecosprin, ramipril, and metoprolol therapy compared to aspirin and nitrocontin.The increased DNA damage in CAD patients may be the consequence of disease and/or drug therapy. These observations are of concern because unrepaired DNA can lead to malignancy, and the likelihood of increasing mortality and morbidity rates in CAD patients.

This study, which is unique even by international standards, demonstrated the clear benefit of initiating antihypertensive therapy with the fixed combination of ramipril and amlodipine over starting treatment buy altace with the free combination. In particular, the chance of discontinuation during a one-year treatment with the former was approximately half of that seen with the latter. Inadequately controlled hypertension is a significant cardiovascular risk factor. The markedly higher persistence of patients on therapy with the fixed combination of ramipril and amlodipine can lead to a reduction in cardiovascular risk, which might prove - on the longer term - a positive outcome of public health significance.

1. Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors exert their cardiovascular effects not only by preventing the formation of angiotensin II (AII), but also by promoting the accumulation of bradykinin in or at the vessel wall. In addition, certain ACE inhibitors have been shown to augment the vasodilator response to bradykinin, presumably by an interaction at the level of the B2 receptor. We have investigated whether this is a specific effect of the ACE inhibitor class of compounds in isolated endothelium-denuded segments of the rabbit jugular vein where bradykinin elicits a constrictor response which is exclusively mediated by activation of the B2 receptor. 2. Moexiprilat and ramiprilat (< or = 3 nM) enhanced the constrictor response to bradykinin three to four fold. Captopril and enalaprilat were less active by approximately one and quinaprilat by two orders of magnitude. Moexiprilat and ramiprilat, on the other hand, had no effect on the constrictor response to AII or the dilator response to acetylcholine. 3. The bradykinin-potentiating effect of the ACE inhibitors was not mimicked by inhibitors of amino-, carboxy-, metallo- or serine peptidases or the synthetic ACE substrate, hippuryl-L-histidyl-L-leucine, at a concentration which almost abolished the residual ACE activity in the vessel wall. In contrast, angiotensin-(1-7) (10 microM), an angiotensin I metabolite, significantly enhanced the constrictor response to bradykinin. 4. Ramiprilat did not alter the binding of [3H]-bradykinin to a membrane fraction prepared from endothelium-denuded rabbit jugular veins or to cultured fibroblasts, and there was no ACE inhibitor-sensitive, bradykinin-induced cleavage of the B2 receptor in cultured endothelial cells. 5. These findings demonstrate that ACE inhibitors selectively potentiate the B2 receptor-mediated vascular effects of bradykinin. Their relative efficacy appears to be independent of their ACE-inhibiting properties and might be related to differences in molecule structure. Moreover buy altace , the potentiation of the biological activity of bradykinin by this class of compounds does not seem to be mediated by a shift in affinity of the B2 receptor or a prevention of its desensitization, but may involve an increase in the intrinsic activity of unoccupied B2 receptor molecules.

Using B(2) kinin receptor gene knockout mice (B(2)(-/-)), we tested the hypothesis that (l) lack of B(2) receptors may affect blood pressure and cardiac function and aggravate cardiac remodeling after myocardial infarction (MI), and (2) kinins partially mediate the cardiac beneficial effect of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEi) or angiotensin II type 1 receptor antagonists (AT(1)-ant), whereas lack of B(2) receptors may diminish this cardioprotective effect. Chronic heart failure (HF) was induced by MI, which was caused by coronary artery ligation in both B(2)(-/-) and 129/SvEvTac mice (wild-type control, B(2)(+/+)). An ACEi (ramipril, 2.5 mg/kg/d) or AT(1)-ant (L-158809, 3 mg/kg/d) was given 1 week after MI and was continued for 12 weeks. Left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction, cardiac output (CO), diastolic LV dimension (LVDd), and LV mass were evaluated by echocardiography. Myocyte cross-sectional area and interstitial collagen fraction were studied histopathologically. We found that basal blood pressure and cardiac function were similar in B(2)(+/+) and B(2)(-/-) mice. After MI, development of HF and remodeling were also similar between the 2 strains. The ACEi improved cardiac function and remodeling in both strains; however, its effects were attenuated in B(2)(-/-) mice (respective values for B(2)(+/+) versus B(2)(-/-) mice: overall increase in ejection fraction, 64+/-10% versus 21+/-5% [P<0.01]; increase in CO, 69+/-17% versus 23+/-9% [P<0.01]; overall decrease in LVDd, -24+/-3% versus -7+/-4% [P<0.01]; and decrease in LV mass, -38+/-3% versus - buy altace 6+/-6% [P<0.01]). AT(1)-ant had a beneficial cardiac effect similar to that produced by ACEi, and this effect was also diminished in B(2)(-/-) mice (respective values for B(2)(+/+) versus B(2)(-/-) mice: overall increase in ejection fraction, 46+/-10% versus 25+/-9% [P<0.01]; increase in CO, 44+/-14% versus 15+/-5% [P<0.01]; overall decrease in LVDd, -14+/-4% versus -6+/-3% [P<0.01]; and decrease in LV mass, -33+/-4 versus -16+/-7% [P<0.01]). The effect of ACEi or AT(1)-ant on myocyte cross-sectional area was similar between strains; however, their effect on the interstitial collagen fraction was diminished in B(2)(-/-) mice. We concluded that (1) lack of B(2) kinin receptors does not affect cardiac phenotype or function, either under normal physiological conditions or during the development of HF; and (2) kinins acting via the B(2) receptor play an important role in the cardioprotective effect of ACEi and AT(1)-ant.

Coronary artery disease is still the no. 1 killer in the developed countries and must thus be detected and treated at an earlier stage. If coronary artery disease is advanced, patients have to be examined regarding the need for revascularization. For secondary prevention, of course, an optimal change of life style and optimal medical treatment of risk factors is mandatory. Independent of the optimal risk factor modification, all of these patients (according to the rules of evidence-based medicine) should take ASA, statins, beta blockers and ACE-inhibitors, if no contraindications or intolerance are present. Therefore, the problem in secondary prevention is not how to identify these patients, but rather how to fulfill their needs. In our own survey in patients with known coronary artery disease referred for PTCA (including patients with post myocardial infarction previous PTCA or bypass surgery), only 89% were on ASA (or clopidogrel), 51% on lipid lowering drugs (46% on statins), 65% on beta blockers, and only 43% had an ACE-inhibitor (MUNICH data in Figures 1 to 4). The analysis of published literature is also depicted in Figures 1 to 4. Until 1996, patients with known coronary artery disease took ASA in only 26% of the cases but later on it was 77 to 100% (Figure 1). Lipid lowering buy altace drugs (especially statins) are prescribed in only 13 to 77% (Figure 2), beta blockers in only 30 to 80% (Figure 3) and ACE-inhibitors in only 10 to 72% (Figure 4). In 2 major studies, a decrease in the rate of intake of these drugs during the follow-up years has been documented. The "ideal tablet" for secondary prevention contains ASA (100 mg), a statin (e.g. for most statins 40 to 80 mg), a beta blocker (e.g. metoprolol 100 mg or bisoprolol 10 mg) and an ACE-inhibitor (e.g. ramipril 10 mg). So this ideal "SPM" ("secondary prevention mix") tablet contains 160 to 300 mg of drugs. In conclusion, the analysis of published data for Europe and the USA shows that--in contrast to the statements of politicians and health care insurance companies--we are not overtreating but rather undertreating our patients regarding medications for secondary prevention.

Although atherosclerosis is today seen as presenting a distinct clinical picture, there buy altace are almost no data available about the impact this has on medical practice and about the point at which a patient is considered high-risk. As part of a larger project on the prevention of heart disease and atherosclerosis, "Aktion plus leben", 1,117 physicians were polled in a scientific survey. The study was carried out in some 100 hospitals throughout Austria, above all in departments of internal medicine, but also in neurological departments, and in a number of other units. The results showed that in fact over 90% of those questioned see atherosclerosis as a separate, treatable illness in the context of risk prevention. The most frequent methods of diagnosis were specified as ultrasound and the clarification of symptoms of coronary heart disease. Atherosclerosis prevention is initiated above all in patients with coronary heart disease, myocardial infarction and stroke, but also very frequently in those with diabetes, peripheral vascular occlusive disease, hyperlipidemia and hypertension. Of particular interest to us was the respondents' evaluation of the effect of ramipril, the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor used in the HOPE study. The majority of those questioned see a broad range of indications for this ACE inhibitor and ascribe to it a profibrinolytic, antiinflammatory and plaque-stabilising action. Although the survey sought assessment of just one particular medication as a possible treatment option, the study documents the importance of a more inclusive concept of atherosclerosis prevention.

Publication of the HOPE study results was associated with rapid increases in the use of ramipril. After adjusting for pre-existing prescribing trends, ramipril prescribing increased by 12% per month (P = 0.001) in Canada versus 5 buy altace % per month (P = 0.001) in the United States after the study results were presented and published. One year later, ramipril accounted for 30% of the ACE inhibitor market in Canada versus 6% in the United States. The year before publication of these results, expenditures for detailing increased by 20% in Canada (to 18 US dollars per physician) but decreased by 7% in the United States (to 13 US dollars per physician); the year after publication, spending increased to 27 US dollars per physician in Canada versus 23 US dollars per physician in the United States. In the absence of promotional activity for RALES in either country, publication of results was associated with more modest but similar increases of 2% per month (P = 0.001) in spironolactone use in both countries.

This study has investigated the microtubular cytoskeleton in rat glomerular and proximal tubule cells in experimental diabetes. The effect of treatment with ramipril on the relationship between microtubule organization and albuminuria in diabetes has also been examined. Diabetes was induced in male Sprague-Dawley rats by administration of streptozotocin (50 mg/kg, i.v.). Rats were treated with or without ramipril in their drinking water for 12 weeks. Diabetes was characterized by an increase in blood glucose level, glomerular filtration rate, and albumin excretion rate. Treatment of diabetic rats with ramipril did not affect glycaemic control, but reduced systolic blood pressure and prevented the rise in albuminuria and glomerular filtration rate. Immunohistochemistry was performed by using the ARK Peroxidase method with alpha-tubulin antibody. The regular, grainy staining pattern of the microtubules present in the renal proximal tubules from control kidneys was altered in diabetic animals, and appeared fragmented and striated. This was prevented by treatment with ramipril. Quantitative morphometric analysis revealed an increase in the percent proportional staining for alpha-tubulin in the proximal tubules of untreated diabetic rats (33.3 +/- 3.3%, n = 8, P < 0.05 vs control) compared with control rats (11.7 +/- 1.7%, n = 6), which was reduced by ramipril treatment (26.7 +/- 2.1%, n = 6, P < 0.05 vs untreated diabetic). Staining for alpha-tubulin in glomerular cells was unchanged in all groups. There was no significant difference in renal alpha-tubulin expression among all groups, as determined by real-time reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction. Zantac Gerd Dosage These results raise the possibility that diabetes-induced changes in microtubules in the renal proximal tubules may contribute, in part, to the increase in albuminuria observed in diabetes.

Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEI) or angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) reduces proteinuria and the rate of renal function deterioration in diabetic nephropathy and other glomerular diseases, but its role in quiescent lupus nephritis has not been established. We conducted Inderal With Alcohol a retrospective study to investigate the effects of ACEI/ARB on proteinuria and renal function in patients with persistent proteinuria (>1 g/day) despite resolution of acute lupus nephritis following immunosuppressive treatment. Fourteen out of 92 patients were included. The duration of treatment with ACEI/ARB was 52.1 +/- 35.7 months. The levels of proteinuria, serum albumin, serum creatinine, systolic and diastolic blood pressure were 1.10 to 6.90 g/day, 35.8 +/- 3.6 g/L, 102.54 +/- 34.48 micromol/L, 137.6 +/- 10.9 and 81.9 +/- 9.2 mmHg at baseline. Proteinuria and serum albumin showed significant sustained improvements after 6 and 24 months of treatment. Comparison of slopes for serial proteinuria, albumin and reciprocal of serum creatinine before and after treatment showed significant improvements in six (43%), eight (57%) and two patients, respectively. At last follow-up proteinuria remained significantly lower (0.36 g/day, P = 0.043) and albumin higher (41.3 +/- 2.2 g/L, P = 0.023). Eleven (78.6%) patients had proteinuria improved by >50%, and five had insignificant proteinuria at last follow-up. Systolic blood pressure was significantly reduced from 6 months onwards, but this did not correlate with proteinuria reduction. Diastolic blood pressure, serum creatinine, creatinine clearance, anti-dsDNA, C3 and haemoglobin were not altered. We conclude that ACEI/ARB effectively reduces proteinuria and improves serum albumin in patients with persistent proteinuria despite quiescent lupus nephritis.

Hypertension is the second leading attributable cause of end-stage renal disease in the United States today. The African-American Study of Kidney Disease and Hypertension was a randomized, double-blind, controlled trial designed to determine whether strict blood pressure (BP) control, angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEI)-based, or calcium channel blocker (CCB)-based regimens were superior to less strict BP control and beta-blocker (BB)-based regimens, respectively. The study enrolled 1093 African Americans with hypertensive nephrosclerosis and followed them for 4 years with repeated direct measurement of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and monitoring of end points, including rapid decline in GFR, end-stage kidney disease, and death. From this landmark study, we learned that strict BP control is achievable in this study population, but it did not slow progression of kidney disease, and we learned that an ACEI-based therapy was superior to either a BB- or CCB-based regimen. In addition, we learned that proteinuria is the most important predictor of progression of kidney disease; ACEI and CCB have differential effects Effexor Xr Reviews on proteinuria; and a CCB-based regimen combined with strict BP control may be the next best choice to an ACEI-based regimen in this population.

To compare the anti-inflammatory and endothelial progenitor cell mobilizing effects of ramipril and telmisartan in patients presenting with acute coronary syndrome (ACS), 42 patients with ACS were randomized after successful percutaneous coronary intervention to ramipril 5 mg/day (22 patients) or telmisartan 80 mg/day (20 patients). Peripheral blood samples were drawn at baseline and at 20 days to measure high-sensitivity C-reactive protein and to assess 4 populations of progenitor cells by flow cytometry, namely CD34+/KDR+, CD34+/CD133+, CD34+/CD133+/CD45-, and CD34+/KDR+/CD45- cells. High-sensitivity C-reactive protein levels, similar in the 2 groups at baseline, were significantly more decreased by telmisartan than by ramipril at follow up (p = 0.013 for time-by-drug interaction). The main effect for time was also significant (p <0.001). CD34+/KDR+ and CD34+/CD133+ cells were similar at baseline and did not change over time (p = 0.2 and p = 0.1, respectively). In contrast, for CD34+/KDR+/CD45- and CD34+/CD133+/CD45- cells, a significant increase with time was seen (p = 0.02 and p = 0.002, respectively) and no differential effect of either drug was seen. In conclusion, telmisartan shows a more potent anti-inflammatory effect than ramipril after an ACS. The 2 drugs do not show a differential effect on endothelial progenitor cell mobilization.

Furosemide and ramipril significantly reduced cardiac ACE and remodeling. Diuretics work favorably and do not interfere with the effects of ACE inhibitors. Possibly, a reduction in wall stress due to decreased volume overload accounts for the effects of diuretics on cardiac ACE in the treatment of post-infarction remodeling in hypertensive hearts. These data suggest a new mechanism for the frequently observed beneficial effect of diuretics in heart failure.
