Systolic blood pressure (SBP) was significantly increased in Nx, Nx-Nebi, and Nx-Meto (168+/-5, 153+/-3, and 162+/-6 mmHg) compared to Sham (138+/-3 mmHg, p<0.05, respectively). The increase in albuminuria of Nx (120-fold vs. Sham, p<0.0001) was almost (-85%) normalized by nebivolol compared to Sham (p<0.05), whereas metoprolol induced no significant effect. Renal arteries showed significantly increased Ach-relaxation in Nx and Nx-Nebi (Emax 86+/-4% and 76+/-7%, p<0.05) due to an increase in EDHF-mediated dilation (Emax_EDHF 78+/-7% and 73+/-6%) compared to Sham (Emax 54+/-4% and Emax_EDHF 44+/-6%) and Nx-Meto (Emax 42+/-12% and Emax_EDHF 18+/-5%). ACh-relaxation in coronary arteries was similar between groups but the contribution of NO (relative to EDHF) was strongly increased by nebivolol.

124 ISH patients aged 69.1 ± 5.1 years (mean ± SD) were enrolled by 13 general practitioners in Netherlands and Belgium and randomized in a double-blind fashion to receive either NH (5/12.5 mg day, n = 62) or IH (150/12.5 mg day, n = 62) for a 12-week period. The primary efficacy endpoint of the study was the comparison of the two combinations in terms of sitting office systolic blood pressure (BP) reduction after 12 weeks of treatment. In addition ambulatory BP, 24-h BP variability, tolerability, and safety profile were also investigated.
1. Presynaptic beta-adrenoceptor activity was studied in rat isolated atria, previously loaded with [3H]-noradrenaline. The stimulation-induced release of 3H transmitter was measured in the presence of cocaine, and adrenaline was used as a facilitatory beta-adrenoceptor agonist. 2. Adrenaline (0.1 and 2 nM) increased, by about 50%, the evoked efflux of tritium. With phenoxybenzamine present, the same activity was shown with 10 nM adrenaline. 3. The beta 2-selective adrenoceptor blocking drugs: IPS 339 and ICI 118 551 caused a concentration-dependent decrease in the activity of adrenaline. Cardioselective beta-blocking drugs: acebutolol, beta-xolol, nebivolol and its isomers (R 67 138 and R 67 145) also reduced dose-dependently the agonistic action of adrenaline. The order of potency for nebivolol and its isomers was R 67 138 greater than nebivolol greater than R 67 145. The activity of pindolol was not concentration-dependent. The inhibitory effect of acebutolol was also observed in the presence of blockade of alpha-adrenoceptors. 4. The postsynaptic beta-adrenoceptor blocking activity of nebivolol and its isomers was studied in pithed rats. They reduced isoprenaline-induced tachycardia without altering hypotensive responses. The order of potency was: R 67 138 greater than nebivolol greater than R 67 145. 5. It is concluded that in rat isolated atria, presynaptic beta 2- and beta 1-adrenoceptors coexist and that facilitatory beta 1-adrenoceptors are stereospecific.

Most β-blockers may induce weight gain, dysglycemia, and dyslipidemia. Nebivolol is a third-generation β1-blocker with vasodilating properties mediated by β3 adrenergic receptors (β3AR). We investigated whether nebivolol is able to induce β3AR-mediated lipolysis, uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1), and size-reduction in human adipocytes.
Endothelial dysfunction is more prevalent in African Americans (AAs) compared with whites. The authors hypothesized that nebivolol, a selective β1 -antagonist that stimulates nitric oxide (NO), will improve endothelial function in AAs with hypertension when compared with metoprolol. In a double-blind, randomized, crossover study, 19 AA hypertensive patients were randomized to a 12-week treatment period with either nebivolol 10 mg or metoprolol succinate 100 mg daily. Forearm blood flow (FBF) was measured using plethysmography at rest and after intra-arterial infusion of acetylcholine and sodium nitroprusside to estimate endothelium-dependent and independent vasodilation, respectively. Physiologic vasodilation was assessed during hand-grip exercise. Measurements were repeated after NO blockade with L-N(G) -monomethylarginine (L-NMMA) and after inhibition of endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF) with tetraethylammonium chloride (TEA). NO blockade with L-NMMA produced a trend toward greater vasoconstriction during nebivolol compared with metoprolol treatment (21% vs 12% reduction in FBF, P=.06, respectively). This difference was more significant after combined administration of L-NMMA and TEA (P<.001). Similarly, there was a contribution of NO to exercise-induced vasodilation during nebivolol but not during metoprolol treatment. There were significantly greater contributions of NO and EDHF to resting vasodilator tone and of NO to exercise-induced vasodilation with nebivolol compared with metoprolol in AAs with hypertension.
The use of oral nebivolol for one week at a dose of 5 mg per day may decrease the incidence of contrast-induced nephropathy in patients who underwent coronary angiography with renal dysfunction. The small numbers of this study do not allow to draw final conclusion on the use of nebivolol in the prevention of CIN. Therefore, larger studies may be necessary to address the definite role of nebivolol in this setting.

Treatment with cisplatin is associated with dose-limiting side effects, mainly nephrotoxicity. On the other hand, nebivolol, a β1 -adrenoceptor antagonist, exhibits vasodilatory and antioxidative properties. This study aimed to determine whether nebivolol possesses a protective effect against cisplatin nephrotoxicity and explore many mechanisms underlying this potential effect. Nephrotoxicity was induced in Wistar rats by a single intraperitoneal injection of cisplatin (6 mg/kg) on day 2. Nebivolol (10 mg/kg) was administered orally for 7 consecutive days. Nebivolol showed a nephroprotective effect as demonstrated by the significant reduction in the elevated levels of serum creatinine and urea as well as renal levels of malondialdehyde, nitric oxide products (nitrite/nitrate), inducible nitric oxide synthase, tumour necrosis factor-alpha, caspase-3, angiotensin II and endothelin-1 with a concurrent increase in renal levels of reduced glutathione and endothelial nitric oxide synthase compared to untreated rats. Histopathological examination confirmed the nephroprotective effect of nebivolol. Pre-treatment with Nω -nitro-L-arginine methyl ester, the non-specific nitric oxide synthase inhibitor, partially altered the protection afforded by nebivolol. In conclusion, nebivolol protects rats against cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity that is most likely through its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antiapoptotic effects as well as by abrogation of the augmented angiotensin II and endothelin-1 levels.

Essential hypertension is associated with endothelial dysfunction, which is caused mainly by the production of oxygen-free radicals that can destroy nitric oxide (NO), and impair its beneficial and protective effects on the vessel wall. In prospective studies, endothelial dysfunction is associated with increased incidence of cardiovascular events. Antihypertensive drugs show contrasting effects in terms of improvement or restoration of endothelial function. Little evidence is available with beta-blockers. Whereas treatment with atenolol has a negative effect in peripheral subcutaneous and muscle microcirculation, insufficient evidence is available to establish whether new compounds such as nebivolol, which activates the L-Arginine--NO pathway, and carvedilol, which has strong antioxidant activity, can improve endothelial function in patients with hypertension. Calcium channel antagonists, particularly the dihydropyridines, can reverse impaired endothelium-dependent vasodilation in different vascular districts, including the subcutaneous, epicardial, renal and forearm circulation. However, conflicting results are found in the brachial artery. In the forearm circulation, nifedipine and lacidipine can improve endothelial dysfunction by restoring NO availability through a mechanism probably related to an antioxidant effect. ACE inhibitors, on the other hand, seem to improve endothelial function in subcutaneous, epicardial, brachial and renal circulation, whereas they are ineffective in potentiating the blunted response to acetylcholine in the forearm of patients with essential hypertension. They can also selectively improve endothelium-dependent vasodilation to bradykinin, an effect not mediated by restoring NO availability but probably related to hyperpolarisation. Recent evidence suggests angiotensin II AT(1)-receptor antagonists can restore endothelium-dependent vasodilation to acetylcholine in subcutaneous microcirculation but not in that of the forearm muscle. Evidence concerning the effect of these drugs on the brachial artery in patients with atherosclerosis is positive. However, treatment with an AT(1)-receptor antagonist can improve basal NO release and decrease the vasoconstrictor effect of endogenous endothelin-1. In conclusion, despite the considerable evidence that impaired endothelium-dependent vasodilation can be improved by appropriate antihypertensive treatment, no clinical data exist demonstrating that the reversal of endothelial dysfunction is associated with a reduction in cardiovascular events. In the near future, large scale clinical trials are required to demonstrate that treatment of endothelial dysfunction can lead to better prognosis in patients with essential hypertension.

Chronic salt administration increased systolic blood pressure by 38 +/- 5 mmHg in salt-treated rats as compared with that in control rats. Both nebivolol and atenolol prevented a salt-induced increase in pressure. cNOS activity was significantly decreased by a high-salt diet. The impairment of endothelium-dependent relaxations in response to acetylcholine in salt-treated rats was prevented only by nebivolol, in both large and small arteries. In contrast, the reduced endothelium-independent relaxations and contractions in response to sodium nitroprusside and endothelin-1, respectively, were restored by both drugs. Nebivolol, but not atenolol, restored cNOS activity.

Following 24-week nebivolol treatment, there was a statistically significant increase in 6'WT distance (from 473 +/- 47.6 to 516.7 +/- 58.4 m; p < 0.0001) and a drop in BDI (from 3.4 +/- 2.2 to 1.1 +/- 0.7; p < 0.05) and FC (from 2.9 +/- 0.4 to 1.7 +/- 0.2; p < 0.05). Doppler EchoCG showed that pulmonary artery systolic pressure statistically significantly decreased (91.6 +/- 30 to 78.3 +/- 39 mm Hg; p = 0.05) at 12 weeks and slightly increased up to 83.2 +/- 32.4 mm Hg at 24 weeks. After 24-week treatment, the anteroposterior dimensions of the right ventricle (RV) statistically significantly reduced (from 4.4 +/- 0.6 to 3.8 +/- 1.2 cm; p < 0.05). The other EchoCG parameters remained substantially unchanged. There was a statistically reduction in the level of ET-1 (from 2.99 +/- 1.1 to 2.17 +/- 0.8 micromol/l; p < 0.05). The concentrations of 6-ketoPG Fla, TxB2, and NO metabolite remained substantially unchanged at 24 weeks of treatment with nebivolol. There were no adverse reactions requiring that the dose of the drug be discontinued or reduced. Heart rate tended to be lower at a 24-week follow-up. All the patients continued taking nebivolol after completion of the study.

Erectile function is critically dependent upon the activation of the endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) in the smooth muscle cells of penile corpus cavernosum tissue. Nebivolol is a beta(1)-selective beta-adrenoceptor blocker (beta-ARB) with additional vasodilating properties, which have been attributed to eNOS-activation. Our study investigated whether nebivolol is able to increase eNOS activity in erectile tissue. Murine penile tissue was incubated in an organ bath under control conditions and in the presence of nebivolol or metoprolol. Immunofluorescence staining was performed using specific antibodies against eNOS-activation or eNOS-serine 1177 phosphorylation. Corpus cavernosum smooth muscle tissue was identified using a smooth muscle actin antibody. In addition, slices of murine erectile tissue were incubated with diaminofluorescein (DAF), a specific fluorescence marker for NO-liberation. Under control conditions and after application of metoprolol, we observed a small eNOS-activation and serine 1177-phosphorylation in murine corpus cavernosum tissue. A significant increase in eNOS-activation and serine 1177-phosphorylation of eNOS was observed only in the presence of nebivolol (10 muM). These alterations of the eNOS protein induced after application of nebivolol were associated with a time-dependent increase in DAF fluorescence in murine erectile tissue. We conclude that beta-adrenoceptor blockers differentially influence erectile tissue. Since cardiovascular diseases are often associated with the development of erectile dysfunction, the nebivolol-induced eNOS-activation in corpus cavernosum may be beneficial when treating patients suffering from cardiovascular disease.

In hypertensive smokers, nebivolol resulted in a significant decrease of plasma PAI-1, fibrinogen and homocystine. Celiprolol also significantly affected these parameters but to a lesser degree, whereas carvedilol had no significant favorable action. In nonsmokers, homocystine was reduced significantly by nebivolol. We conclude that smoking status should be a determinant of antihypertensive treatment choice.
A total of 811 patients were randomized to placebo or nebivolol 5 mg, 10 mg, or 20 mg once daily for 12 weeks. The primary efficacy endpoint was the reduction in mean trough SiDBP from baseline.
A large body of evidence indicates that patients with essential hypertension are characterized by endothelial dysfunction mediated by an impaired NO availability secondary to oxidative stress production. A dysfunctioning endothelium is an early marker of the development of atherosclerotic changes and can also contribute to cardiovascular events. Vascular reactivity tests represent the most widely used methods in the clinical assessment of endothelial function. In the last two decades, many studies have evaluated the endothelium in hypertensive patients, using different techniques. Several methodologies were developed to study microcirculation (resistance arteries and arterioles) and macrocirculation (conduit arteries), both in coronary and peripheral vascular districts. This review will describe the most relevant available techniques in the research on endothelial dysfunction in essential hypertension, their advantages and limitations, focusing on available data on endothelial dysfunction and on the effect of treatment. Endothelial dysfunction in the coronary and peripheral circulation of hypertensive patients are associated with hypertensive target organ damage and it is predictive of cardiovascular events. Several non-pharmacological approaches, including physical exercise and dietary interventions, can ameliorate endothelial function in hypertensive patients. Despite blood pressure reduction per se is not effective, some antihypertensive drugs can improve endothelial dysfunction, particularly calcium channel antagonist in the microcirculation, ACE-inhibitors and AT1-receptor antagonists mostly in conduit arteries. Some beneficial effects were also exerted by nebivolol and statins. Future studies are needed to confirm whether the improvement in endothelial dysfunction is associated to better cardiovascular prognosis in hypertension.

A total of 22 patients in the nebivolol group and 17 patients in the metoprolol group completed the study and were included in the data analysis (mean age of patients, 40.7 years). At study entry, systolic blood pressure (BP), diastolic BP, and PSQI scores were similar in the two groups. Over 6 weeks of treatment, systolic and diastolic BP normalized in both groups. Global PSQI score improved significantly in patients in the nebivolol group, whereas it worsened in the metoprolol group. The difference in effect of two beta-blockers was statistically significant (P<0.001).
