Genetic polymorphisms in the oxidative metabolism of debrisoquine, mephenytoin, phenformin, sparteine, and tolbutamide have been discovered during recent years. Among these pharmacogenetic conditions, polymorphic oxidation of debrisoquine and sparteine has been intensively studied. Two phenotypes, the extensive (EM) and the poor (PM) metabolizers, have been observed in all populations so far investigated. The PM phenotype exhibits a grossly impaired or nearly absent capacity to metabolize these drugs. The incidence of the PM phenotype in European populations ranges from 5 to 9%. Pronounced variations in the incidence of the PM phenotype have been demonstrated among different ethnic groups. The metabolism of debrisoquine and sparteine is determined by two alleles at a single gene locus; PMs are homozygous for an autosomal recessive gene. Because of markedly impaired metabolism, the PM phenotype develops side effects if normal doses of debrisoquine and sparteine are administered. Defective metabolism in the PM phenotype is not restricted to debrisoquine and sparteine. Impaired metabolism of guanoxan , phenformin, perhexiline, methoxyamphetamine, phenacetin, encainide, metoprolol, alprenolol, bufuralol, nortriptyline, and desipramine have been described. As a consequence of impaired metabolism of these drugs, toxicity and therapeutic failure are observed in the PMs. With regard to molecular mechanisms, studies with microsomes from human liver provide evidence that in the PM phenotype a cytochrome P-450 isozyme is either missing or functionally inadequate.

lopressor reviews

728 individuals were studied, of whom 171 were treated using monotherapy (ACE inhibitor (n = 21), diuretic (n = 10), or beta blocker (n = 72)), or combination treatment (ACE inhibitor + diuretic (n = 32), ACE inhibitor + beta blocker (n = 7), diuretic + beta blocker (n = 22), ACE inhibitor + diuretic + beta blocker (n = 7)). The remaining 557 individuals were untreated. Indications for treatment were hypertension (75%), coronary artery disease with (12%) or without (3%) hypertension, or unknown (10%).

Since beta-adrenoceptor blocking drugs were originally discovered and shown to be important therapeutic agents in the management of both angina pectoris and hypertension, many other similar drugs have become available. These share the common property of beta-adrenoceptor antagonism, though they may vary in terms of potency. However, they differ from one another in terms of their additional pharmacological properties--cardioselectivity, partial agonist activity, and membrane stabilizing activity. Cardioselectivity refers to the ability of some drugs, notably atenolol and metoprolol, to block beta 1 receptors without blocking beta 2 receptors. This has been considered to be of potential importance in patients with obstructive airways disease, patients with peripheral vascular disease, and patients with insulin-dependent diabetes during hypoglycemic crisis. Partial agonist activity is the intrinsic activity that some drugs have to stimulate the beta adrenoceptor while they are competitively antagonizing catecholamines. In consequence, they may have less effect on resting heart rate, cardiac output, peripheral vascular blood flow, and resting respiratory function. However, there is no good evidence that major adverse effects of beta-adrenoceptor blocking drugs such as congestive heart failure, bronchospasm, or symptoms of peripheral vascular disease are prevented by drugs with partial agonist activity: bradycardia may be improved, but its importance has probably been overemphasized. Membrane-stabilizing activity appears to be unimportant. As far as pharmacokinetic differences between drugs are concerned, lipid solubility is seen to be of increasing importance. The more water-soluble drugs have longer elimination half-lives, produce less interindividual variation in steady-state plasma concentrations, and penetrate the central nervous system less readily.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

The gill is the principle site of xenobiotic transfer to and from the aqueous environment. To replace, refine or reduce (3Rs) the large numbers of fish used in in vivo uptake studies an effective in vitro screen is required that mimics the function of the teleost gill. This study uses a rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) primary gill cell culture system grown on permeable inserts, which tolerates apical freshwater thus mimicking the intact organ, to assess the uptake and efflux of pharmaceuticals across the gill. Bidirectional transport studies in media of seven pharmaceuticals (propranolol, metoprolol, atenolol, formoterol, terbutaline, ranitidine and imipramine) showed they were transported transcellularly across the epithelium. However, studies conducted in water showed enhanced uptake of propranolol, ranitidine and imipramine. Concentration-equilibrated conditions without a concentration gradient suggested that a proportion of the uptake of propranolol and imipramine is via a carrier-mediated process. Further study using propranolol showed that its transport is pH-dependent and at very low environmentally relevant concentrations (ng L(-1)), transport deviated from linearity. At higher concentrations, passive uptake dominated. Known inhibitors of drug transport proteins; cimetidine, MK571, cyclosporine A and quinidine inhibited propranolol uptake, whilst amantadine and verapamil were without effect. Together this suggests the involvement of specific members of SLC and ABC drug transporter families in pharmaceutical transport.

A 54-year-old man presented with hypertensive crisis. He was found to have bilateral pheochromocytomas and left paraaortic sympathetic paraganglioma. Although he had no family history of paragangliomas or pheochromocytomas, he had been diagnosed with bilateral head and neck paragangliomas 10 years prior. The patient had symptoms of catecholamine excess exacerbated by vanilla ice-cream consumption. Biochemical testing revealed elevated plasma-free metanephrines and chromogranin A levels. Computed tomography showed bilateral carotid body tumors and four reteroperitoneal masses (two in the right adrenal, one in the left adrenal and one in the left paraaortic area). Metaiodobenzylguanidine-SPECT scans showed functional tumors in both the adrenal gland and left paraaortic area. Fluorine 18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography did not show any visceral or skeletal metastasis. We carried out gene mutation analysis for succinate dehydrogenase complex subunit B, and succinate dehydrogenase complex subunit D. The patient was diagnosed with hereditary paraganglioma syndrome type 1 with a previously unreported subunit D mutation in exon 3 (c.198G > A, p.W66X). He was treated with phenoxybenzamine at 10 mg/day and with metoprolol at 12.5 mg/day. His blood pressures as well as symptoms of catecholamine excess were controlled. He then underwent bilateral adrenalectomy and reteroperitoneal dissection. His blood pressure normalized and he discontinued antihypertensive medications after surgery. He is currently on replacement therapy with hydrocortisone and fludrocortisone.

The METOCARD-CNIC trial is testing the hypothesis that the early initiation of IV metoprolol pre-reperfusion reduces infarct size in comparison to initiation of oral metoprolol post-reperfusion. Given the implications of infarct size reduction in STEMI, if positive, this trial might evidence that a refined use of an approved inexpensive drug can improve outcomes of patients with STEMI.

The use of various doses of metoprolol (spesicor, Leiras, Finland), a selective beta 1-adrenoblocker, in patients with CHD combined with clinical or instrumentally detectable symptoms of bronchial asthma or stage I-II essential hypertension with angina pectoris of I-II functional classes, has shown that metoprolol cardioselective blockade is a relative phenomenon which has definite correlation with a dose, duration of therapy, and the initial status of the bronchopulmonary system. An antianginal effect was observed in 68.5% of patients, an antihypertensive effect--in 71.3%, side-effects--in 6.4%.

Thirty-six male rabbits were divided into six groups, six in each, group 1 received distilled water, group 2 were treated with paracetamol (1 g/kg/day, orally), group 3, 4,5 and 6 were treated at a dose in (mg/kg/day) of the following: Carvedilol (10 mg), prazosin (0.5 mg), metoprolol (10 mg), and a combination of metoprolol (10 mg) and prazosin (0.5 mg) respectively 1 h before paracetamol treatment. All treatments were given for 9 days; animals were sacrificed at day 10. Liver function tests, malondialdehyde (MDA) and glutathione (GSH) in serum and liver homogenates were estimated. Histopathological examinations of liver were performed.

We studied the metabolic disposition of imipramine by measuring imipramine and its metabolites in plasma and urine simultaneously after a single oral dose of 25 mg of imipramine hydrochloride administered to 16 healthy (three Japanese and 13 Korean) volunteers. Four of the subjects were poor metabolizers (PMs) of metoprolol but extensive metabolizers (EMs) of S-mephenytoin (PMML/EMMP), five subjects were EMs of metoprolol but PMs of S-mephenytoin (EMML/PMMP) and seven subjects were EMs of both metoprolol and S-mephenytoin (EMML/EMMP). The mean (+/- S.D.) oral clearances of imipramine were smaller in the PMML/EMMP group and the EMML/PMMP group than in the EMML/EMMP group, although a statistical difference (P < .05) was found only in the EMML/PMMP vs. the EMML/EMMP group. The mean area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUC) of desipramine was 9 times greater (P < .01) in PMML/EMMP group, whereas the mean value was 0.6 times smaller (P < .05) in the EMML/PMMP group than in the EMML/EMMP group. The log10 metoprolol/alpha-hydroxymetoprolol ratio correlated positively with the AUC of desipramine (P < .01) and with the AUC ratio of desipramine/imipramine (P < .05) but negatively with the AUC ratio of 2-hydroxyimipramine/imipramine (P < .05). Log10 percent 4'-hydroxymephenytoin excreted in 8-hr urine correlated positively with the AUC of desipramine (P < .01) and with the AUC ratio of desipramine/imipramine (P < .01). The urinary excretions of imipramine and its metabolites also reflected the data derived from plasma samples in the three different phenotype-paired panels.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

This study investigates effects of beta-adrenergic blockade on total silent ischemic time assessed by ambulatory electrocardiographic monitoring and its relation to heart rate and time of day in ambulatory men with coronary artery disease. Metoprolol, when titrated to optimal dose in a controlled trial in 9 patients, reduced both total silent ischemic time (from 156 +/- 65 to 20 +/- 15 minutes, p = 0.04) and frequency of silent ischemic episodes (from 8 +/- 2 to 2 +/- 2 episodes, p = 0.03) compared with placebo. Mean daily heart rate was reduced, from 82 +/- 2 beats/min during placebo to 58 +/- 1 beats/min, as was heart rate at onset of 1 mm of ST-segment depression (106 +/- 2 to 74 +/- 4 beats/min, both p less than 0.001). Heart rate increased 10 +/- 1 beats/min during silent ischemia with placebo therapy, but increased only 4 +/- 1 beats/min during metoprolol treatment (p less than 0.03). During placebo administration the largest proportion of silent ischemic time occurred between 0600 and 1200 hours. Metoprolol attenuated this circadian variation in silent ischemia while reducing (p less than 0.05) total silent ischemic time in all periods. Thus, beta-adrenergic blockade reduces the frequency of silent myocardial ischemic episodes and total silent ischemic time, while mean daily heart rate and heart rate at onset of ischemia and maximal ischemia decrease. Metoprolol treatment also attenuates circadian variation of silent ischemia. These data may be interpreted to suggest that beta-adrenergic activation operates in the pathogenesis of silent myocardial ischemia and its circadian variation.

This study was undertaken to clarify whether antihypertensive treatment has any effect on the rate of progression of kidney disease in patients with incipient diabetic nephropathy. Six insulin-dependent diabetic men with incipient nephropathy (urinary albumin excretion above 15 micrograms/min and total protein excretion below 0.5 g/24 h) were first given metoprolol (200 mg daily) with the subsequent addition of hydroflumethiazide. At the start of antihypertensive treatment, mean patient age was 32 +/- 4.2 years (SD) and mean duration of diabetes was 18 +/- 1.2 years. The patients were followed with repeated measurements of urinary albumin excretion for a mean of 5.4 +/- 3.1 years prior to, and for 4.7 +/- 1.3 years (SD) during treatment. Mean arterial blood pressure declined significantly during treatment, e.g., the values at 6 months before initiation of treatment being compared with values during the last 6 months of treatment fell from 107 mmHg +/- 7.6 to 93 +/- 3.8 (2p = 1.5%). Albumin excretion decreased from 131.0 micrograms/min X/divided by 2.9 (geometric mean X/divided by tolerance factor) to 41.7 micrograms/min X/divided by 2.9 (2p = 1.2%). Albumin clearance in per cent of glomerular filtration rate decreased from a mean of 0.0030 +/- 0.0019% (SD) to 0.0011 +/- 0.0010% (2p = 4.6%). The mean yearly increase in urinary albumin excretion before treatment was 18.0 +/- 17.0% (mean +/- SD); during treatment urinary albumin excretion decreased 19 +/- 10% per year (2p = 0.7%). No changes were seen in renal plasma flow (516 +/- 31.0 ml/min to 520 +/- 66 ml/min (n = 5)).(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Carvedilol is an antihypertensive drug available as a racemic mixture. (-)-(S)-carvedilol is responsible for the nonselective β-blocker activity but both enantiomers present similar activity on α(1)-adrenergic receptor. To our knowledge, this is the first study of carvedilol enantiomers in human plasma using a chiral stationary phase column and liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry. The method involves plasma extraction with diisopropyl ether using metoprolol as internal standard and direct separation of the carvedilol enantiomers on a Chirobiotic T® (Teicoplanin) column. Protonated ions [M + H](+) and their respective ion products were monitored at transitions of 407 > 100 for the carvedilol enantiomers and 268 > 116 for the internal standard. The quantification limit was 0.2 ng ml(-1) for both enantiomers in plasma. The method was applied to study enantioselectivity in the pharmacokinetics of carvedilol administered as a single dose of 25 mg to a hypertensive patient. The results showed a higher plasma concentration of (+)-(R)-carvedilol (AUC(0-∞) 205.52 vs. 82.61 (ng h) ml(-1)), with an enantiomer ratio of 2.48.

Vertigo and dizziness are not independent disease entities, but instead symptoms of various diseases. Accordingly, a variety of treatment approaches are required. Here we review the most relevant drugs for managing dizziness, vertigo, and nystagmus syndromes. It is important to differentiate symptomatic treatment of nausea and vomiting with, for example, dimenhydrinate and benzodiazepines, and prophylactic treatment of motion sickness with scopolamine from a causal therapy of the underlying disorders. Examples of such causal therapy include aminopyridines for downbeat nystagmus and episodic ataxia type 2; carbamazepine for vestibular paroxysmia, paroxsymal dysarthria and ataxia in multiple sclerosis, and superior oblique myokymia; betahistine, dexamethasone, and gentamicin for Menière's disease; gabapentin and memantine for different forms of acquired and congenital nystagmus; corticosteroids for acute vestibular neuritis and Cogan's syndrome; metoprolol and topiramate for vestibular migraine; and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors such as paroxetine for phobic postural vertigo. The clinical entities are briefly described, the various medications are discussed in alphabetical order, and dosage, major side effects, contraindications, and alternative medications of each drug are displayed in boxes for easy reference.

1 Cerebral blood flow (CBF) was measured by the 133xenon inhalation method in 33 newly-diagnosed hypertensive patients prior to commencing therapy. 2 Blood pressure was treated by using a varying sequence of four different drugs, namely labetalol, metoprolol, oxprenolol and sotalol, each of which is a beta-adrenergic receptor blocking agent, but with differing additional properties. 3 CBF measurements were repeated when blood pressure was controlled. No significant change in CBF was found with any of the four drugs, in contrast to the fall which has been reported when drugs of this type are administered acutely.

Four studies using different daily doses (100 mg, 200 mg, 300 mg and 400 mg) have examined the bioequivalence of the once daily formulation metoprolol CR/ZOK and conventional metoprolol tablets (CT). These studies showed metoprolol CR/ZOK to have a similar beta 1-blocking activity to metoprolol CT but that the bioavailability of the new formulation was lower. This paper presents the analysis of data from all four studies, looking at the relationship between plasma concentrations and beta 1-blockade measured as reduction of exercise induced tachycardia. The log linear pharmacodynamic model was used for each of the four doses to compare the two formulations. Mean slopes and intercepts in the linear regression analysis of log plasma concentration of metoprolol versus beta 1-blockade did not differ significantly between CR/ZOK and CT in any of the four studies. After having shown lack of influence of the absorption rate of the plasma concentration-effect relationship, data for CR/ZOK and CT formulations from the 200 mg study were pooled for each individual subject and fitted to an Emax model. The maximal beta 1-blocking effect (Emax) was 28% (95% confidence interval: 25-31%) and the plasma concentration for obtaining 50% of Emax (C50) was 105 nmol/L (95% confidence interval: 74-135 nmol/L). The plasma concentration-effect data from the 100 mg, 300 mg and 400 mg studies were reasonably well within the 95% prediction interval based on the 200 mg study, which showed the validity of the obtained relationship.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Eleven patients with moderate COPD were recruited. Treatments were well-tolerated although two did not participate in the high-dose metoprolol phase. The area under the salbutamol-response curve was lower after propranolol compared with placebo (P=0.0006). The area under the curve also tended to be lower after high-dose metoprolol (P=0.076). The per cent recovery of the methacholine-induced fall was also lower after high-dose metoprolol (P=0.0018). Low-dose metoprolol did not alter the bronchodilator response. Oxygen saturation at peak exercise was lower with all beta-blocker treatments (P=0.046).

The effects on diabetic control of the relative cardioselective beta-blocker metoprolol and the non-selective drug propranolol were compared in 20 hypertensive diabetic patients receiving diet alone or diet and oral hypoglycaemic agents. Each drug was given for one month in a double-blind, cross-over study. Fasting, noon, and mid-afternoon blood sugar concentrations rose by 1.0-1.5 mmol/l (18-27 mg/100 ml). The rise with propranolol was not significantly buy lopressor greater than with metoprolol. In a few patients the rise was clinically important. The small overall change observed in diabetic control should not deter the use of beta-blockers in non-insulin-dependent diabetics, provided control is carefully monitored at the onset of treatment.

A double-blind, randomised, parallel-group study was performed to compare the efficacy and tolerability of a new extended-release tablet containing felodipine and metoprolol with each constituent agent as monotherapy. After a 4-week placebo period, 159 patients with mild-to-moderate essential hypertension were randomised to receive either the combination tablet of felodipine and metoprolol 10/100 mg, felodipine 10 mg or metoprolol 100 mg once daily if supine diastolic blood pressure was > or = 95 mmHg. After 12 weeks of active treatment, reductions in supine systolic/diastolic blood pressure 24 h after dosing were 20/14, 13/10 and 11/8 mmHg with felodipine-metoprolol, felodipine and metoprolol, respectively. The differences in blood pressure changes were 7/4 mmHg (p = 0.004/0.006) and 8/5 mmHg (p = 0.0002/< 0.0001) buy lopressor between the fixed combination and felodipine and metoprolol, respectively. Blood pressure response (defined as a diastolic blood pressure < or = 90 mmHg and/or a reduction > or = 10 mmHg) after 12 weeks of treatment was greater with the combination than with felodipine or metoprolol alone: 85% vs 72% (p = 0.06) and 54% (p = 0.001), respectively. Treatments were well tolerated and adverse events were as expected from previous studies with each agent and did not differ in frequency between groups. In conclusion, the extended-release tablet formulation of felodipine-metoprolol 10/100 mg produces a clinically relevant and significantly greater blood pressure reduction 24 h after dosing than either agent as monotherapy without decreasing tolerability.

They were studied at rest supine and during ischemia-inducing exercise in the seated posture using invasive percutaneous techniques. Sixteen patients received 200 mg labetalol as a single oral doses, 15 received 100 mg metoprolol plus 10 mg nifedipine. Both regimens reduced pressures in the systemic and pulmonary circulation under all conditions. At rest, stroke volume and cardiac output slightly decreased after labetalol and increased after metoprolol/nifedipine. During exercise the changes induced by the two regimens were virtually identical; heart rates and vascular resistances were reduced, stroke volume increased, cardiac output was not significantly changed. Plasma renin activity was lowered by labetalol, unchanged by metoprolol/nifedipine. Plasma adrenaline increased after metoprolol/nifedipine only, noradrenaline with buy lopressor both regimens. Both combinations significantly lowered stroke work and the rate pressure product and had similar beneficial effects on the onset and the duration of angina. It is concluded that both combinations significantly reduce blood pressures and attenuate or offset the potential adverse hemodynamic effects of beta-receptor blockade alone without loss but rather enhancement of antianginal efficacy.

Various vanilloid-type beta-adrenoceptor blockers were studied on guinea pig right atrium and trachea and rat colon. In addition, we also investigated their beta(1)-, beta(2)-, and beta(3)-adrenoceptor binding affinities. All these beta-adrenergic antagonists inhibited (-)isoproterenol-induced positive chronotropic effects of the right atrium and tracheal relaxation responses in a concentration-dependent manner. Some of these agents prevented the inhibition of rat colon spontaneous motility by (-)isoproterenol. Of the agents tested, we found that ferulidilol, eugenodilol, eugenolol, isoeugenolol, and ferulinolol, as well as propranolol and metoprolol, possessed beta(3)-adrenoceptor blocking activities, others were nearly without effectiveness. Furthermore, the binding buy lopressor characteristics of vanilloid-type beta-adrenergic antagonists were evaluated in [3H]CGP-12177, a beta(1)/beta(2)-adrenoceptor blocker and a beta(3)-adrenoceptor agonist, binding to beta(1)-, beta(2)-, and beta(3)-adrenoceptor sites in rat ventricle, lung, and interscapular brown adipose tissue (IBAT) membranes, respectively. Eugenodilol, eugenolol, metoprolol, isoeugenolol, and ferulinolol were less potent than both propranolol and ferulidilol in competing for the beta(3)-adrenoceptor binding sites. From the results of in vitro functional and binding studies, we suggested that propranolol, ferulidilol, eugenodilol, eugenolol, metoprolol, isoeugenolol, and ferulinolol all possessed beta(3)-adrenoceptor blocking activities. On the other hand, we also found that eugenodilol, eugenolol, metoprolol, isoeugenolol, and ferulinolol had a low lipid solubility in comparison with propranolol and ferulidilol. In conclusion, we proposed that beta(3)-adrenoceptor antagonistic actions of these vanilloid-type beta-blockers were positively correlated with their lipid solubility.

Pharmacological interactions in both directions between phenprocoumon and atenolol and metoprolol were investigated using a crossover trial. Co-administration of phenprocoumon did not significantly affect Cmax, tmax, t1/ buy lopressor 2,22, AUC for atenolol or metoprolol. Co-administration of metoprolol, but not atenolol, increased mean plasma phenprocoumon concentrations 4 and 6 h after dosing and was caused by a decrease in the apparent volume of distribution. This increase in plasma phenprocoumon was not associated with an increase in prothrombin time or in the total area under the concentration-time curve. Although the transient increase of phenprocoumon plasma levels caused by metoprolol may be of little clinical significance after a single dose of phenprocoumon, a more important alteration in phenprocoumon disposition and effect should be considered in individual patients on long-term therapy.

The effects of mental stress (a colour word conflict test, CWT) and adrenaline infusions (0.1 and 0.4 nmol kg-1 min-1) on t-PA activity, t-PA antigen, PAI-1 activity and PAI-1 antigen were studied in 18 healthy male volunteers. Furthermore, the effects of metoprolol (200 mg/day during 1 week) or placebo (double-blind cross-over study) on fibrinolytic responses to sympatho-adrenal activation, and relationships between fibrinolysis and blood lipids were investigated. Low and high dose adrenaline infusions yielding plasma adrenaline levels of 0.9 +/- 0.1 and 3.4 +/- 0.4 nmol/l, respectively, dose-dependently increased t-PA levels with a concomitant decrease in PAI-1 levels. A similar, but weaker, fibrinolytic response seemed to occur during CWT, when plasma adrenaline levels were only moderately increased (to 0.4 +/- 0.1 nmol/l). Metoprolol treatment did not Imitrex 200 Mg influence the resting levels of the fibrinolytic variables studied, but tended to enhance the t-PA response to CWT and further reduce PAI-1 during adrenaline infusion. Metoprolol treatment was not accompanied by any rise in PAI-1 levels despite drug induced elevations of triglyceride levels. Thus, the present study shows that sympatho-adrenal activation increases fibrinolytic activity in vivo and that metoprolol treatment may have a favourable influence on this activity.

The benefits of beta blockade in acute and postmyocardial infarction are well documented. More than 50 placebo-controlled trials have been performed, involving more than 40,000 patients with short- or long-term follow-up. In long-term follow-up studies in approximately 20,000 patients, mortality was reduced by 21% and reinfarction by 24%. When high-risk patients were assessed separately, the reduction in mortality after early intervention was significantly greater than in low-risk patients. The trial medication was withdrawn in approximately 24% and 28% of patients in the placebo and beta-blocker groups, respectively, in the major trials. In addition to reduction of mortality and reinfarction rates, benefits have clearly been demonstrated in prevention of arrhythmias and thromboatherosclerotic complications. Significantly more patients had hypotension and bradycardia with beta-blocker treatment than with placebo; no clear-cut difference between the placebo and beta-blocker groups was found for atrioventricular block or congestive heart failure when patients with these conditions were excluded. In the Stockholm Metoprolol Trial, 3 years of metoprolol treatment in about 300 patients after myocardial infarction prolonged both survival and time spent completely asymptomatic, in an optimal functional state, or both. Patients receiving metoprolol spent less time disabled after serious atherosclerotic complications, including bypass surgery. Long-term beta blockade after myocardial infarction reduces mortality and morbidity in 80% of Lopressor Missed Dose patients by 21% and 24%, respectively, but causes adverse reactions in approximately 10%. With proper selection of patients and the type and dose of beta blocker, survival without atherosclerotic complications or adverse effects can be prolonged.

Intravital microscopy of the pulmonary microcirculation in research animals is of great scientific interest for its utility in identifying regional changes in pulmonary microcirculatory blood flow. Although feasibility studies have been reported, the pulmonary window can be further refined into a practical tool for pharmaceutical research and drug development. We have established a method to visualize and quantify dynamic changes in three key features of lung function: microvascular red blood cell velocity, flow direction, and hemoglobin saturation. These physiological parameters were measured in Antabuse Overdose an acute closed-chest pulmonary window, which allows real-time images to be captured by fluorescence and multispectral absorption microscopy; images were subsequently quantified using computerized analysis. We validated the model by quantifying changes in microcirculatory blood flow and hemoglobin saturation in two ways: 1) after changes in inspired oxygen content and 2) after pharmacological reduction of pulmonary blood flow via treatment with the β1 adrenergic receptor blocker metoprolol. This robust and relatively simple system facilitates pulmonary intravital microscopy in laboratory rats for pharmacological and physiological research.
