The survival rate of the gerbils 72 hours after carotid ligation was 65% in control, 62% in losartan, 30% in enalapril, 32% in enalapril + losartan, and 32% in captopril groups. Statistical analysis (log rank test) of the Kaplan-Meier survival curves over 72 hours showed no difference between losartan and controls nor between the various groups treated with ACEI. However survival was significantly lower in the ACEI groups than in the group treated by losartan alone (p < 0.02) or controls (p < 0.02). Intraaortic mean arterial pressure was measured in 6 controls, 6 animals treated with losartan and 6 other treated with enalapril. It was comparable in the losartan and enalapril treated animals (65 +/- 2 mm Hg vs 64 +/- 2) but significantly lower than in the controls (77 +/- 2 mmHg) (p < 0.02).

Zinc, the catalytically essential metal of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE), has been replaced by cobalt(II) to give an active, chromophoric enzyme that is spectroscopically responsive to inhibitor binding. Visible absorption spectroscopy and magnetic circular dichroic spectropolarimetry have been used to characterize the catalytic metal binding site in both the cobalt enzyme and in several enzyme-inhibitor complexes. The visible absorption spectrum of cobalt ACE exhibits a single broad maximum (525 nm) of relatively low absorptivity (epsilon = 75 M-1 cm-1). In contrast, the spectra of enzyme-inhibitor complexes display more clearly defined maxima at longer wavelengths (525-637 nm) and of markedly higher absorptivities (130-560 M-1 cm-1). The large spectral response indicates that changes in the cobalt ion coordination sphere occur on inhibitor binding. Magnetic circular dichroic spectropolarimetry has shown that the metal coordination geometry in the inhibitor complexes is tetrahedral and of higher symmetry than in cobalt ACE alone. The presence of sulfur----cobalt charge-transfer bands in both the visible absorption and magnetic circular dichroic spectra of the cobalt ACE-Captopril complex confirm direct ligation of the thiol group of the inhibitor to the active-site metal.

ACE inhibitors selectively potentiate endothelium dependent relaxations to submaximal concentrations of bradykinin in bovine and human coronary arteries by a local mechanism. This effect on endothelial cells might occur in addition to augmented bradykinin concentrations in the blood and reduced angiotensin II generation.

The benefit-risk ratio of combined blocking by the direct renin inhibitor aliskiren and an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (e.g. enalapril) on the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system is discussed. No method was available for simultaneous determination of both drugs in urine. A novel sensitive method for simultaneous quantification in undiluted human urine was developed which enables systematic pharmacokinetic investigations, especially in poorly investigated populations like children. Matrix effects were clearly reduced by applying solid-phase extraction followed by a chromatographic separation on Xselect(TM) C18 CSH columns. Mobile phase consisted of methanol and water, both acidified with formic acid. Under gradient conditions and a flow rate of 0.4 mL/min the column effluent was monitored by tandem mass spectrometry with electrospray ionization. Calibration curves were constructed in the range of 9.4-9600 ng/mL regarding aliskiren, 11.6-12000 ng/mL for enalapril and 8.8-9000 ng/mL for enalaprilat. All curves were analyzed utilizing 1/x(2) -weighted quadratic squared regression. Intra-run and inter-run precision were 3.2-5.8% and 6.1-10.3% for aliskiren, 2.4-6.1% and 3.9-7.9% for enalapril as well as 3.1-9.4% and 4.7-12.7% regarding enalaprilat. Selectivity, accuracy and stability results comply with current international bioanalysis guidelines. The fully validated method was successfully applied to a pharmacokinetic investigation in healthy volunteers.

The angiotensin converting enzyme-inhibitor enalapril is the prodrug of enalaprilat and used in the treatment pediatric hypertension and chronic heart failure. Pharmacokinetic data are lacking to provide adequate dosing and for pediatric pharmacotherapeutical trials it is imperative to minimize sample volume. Therefore an HPLC-tandem mass spectrometry (MS) method for the determination of enalapril and enalaprilat in 100 μL of human serum was developed and validated with benazepril as internal standard (IS). After solid-phase extraction, chromatography was performed on a Luna(®) RP-C(18) (2) column with methanol-water-formic acid (65:35:1, v/v/v) as mobile phase and a flow rate of 0.4 mL/min. The MS was set to positive-mode electrospray ionization and multiple reaction monitoring, analyzing the m/z transitions channels 377.3 → 234.2, 349.3 → 206.1 and 425.3 → 351.2 for enalapril, enalaprilat and IS. Calibration curves were linear in the range of 1.61-206 ng/mL (enalapril) and 1.84-236 ng/mL (enalaprilat) with coefficients of determination >0.99. Relative standard deviations of intra- and inter-run precisions were below 7% and relative errors were below 6 ± 7% for both analytes. Also stabilities were acceptable for both analytes. As an application example, concentrations of enalapril and enalaprilat in serum after oral administration of 20 mg enalapril maleat in a healthy volunteer were determined.

The aim of the present study was to assess the possible differences in hemodynamic and neurohumoral responses to local ACE inhibition in the human forearm of patients with essential hypertension with either quinaprilat or enalaprilat. Forearm vascular responses to infusion of quinaprilat or enalaprilat (0.5 microg/dL/min) into the brachial artery were studied in 12 male patients with essential hypertension. The experiments were performed in a randomized, double-blind, crossover fashion. Before and during ACE inhibition, the vasoconstrictor response to four cumulative doses of angiotensin I (Ang I) was studied. Forearm blood flow was assessed using venous occlusion plethysmography. Local quinaprilat infusion induced a more rapid (even after 15 minutes; median vasodilation quinaprilat 29% vs. enalaprilat --1%, P < 0.02) and longer lasting forearm vasodilation as compared with enalaprilat. After 15 minutes of local ACE inhibition, the vasoconstrictor response to Ang I was completely blocked by both ACE inhibitors. We conclude that in patients with essential hypertension quinaprilat induces a more rapid and longer lasting vasodilatation than enalaprilat. These effects of quinaprilat are possibly related to its higher affinity for vascular ACE. On the other hand, the fact that these effects of quinaprilat were observed despite a similar degree of ACE inhibition as during enalaprilat may suggest that quinaprilat directly stimulates another vasodilatating mechanism.

Severe hypertension is a common clinical problem in the United States, encountered in various clinical settings. Although various terms have been applied to severe hypertension, such as hypertensive crises, emergencies, or urgencies, they are all characterized by acute elevations in BP that may be associated with end-organ damage (hypertensive crisis). The immediate reduction of BP is only required in patients with acute end-organ damage. Hypertension associated with cerebral infarction or intracerebral hemorrhage only rarely requires treatment. While nitroprusside is commonly used to treat severe hypertension, it is an extremely toxic drug that should only be used in rare circumstances. Furthermore, the short-acting calcium channel blocker nifedipine is associated with significant morbidity and should be avoided. Today, a wide range of pharmacologic alternatives are available to the practitioner to control severe hypertension. This article reviews some of the current concepts and common misconceptions in the management of patients with acutely elevated BP.

Twelve patients with PTE and 12 renal transplant patients without PTE were studied. Erythroid burst-forming units (BFU-E) were isolated from peripheral blood using standard methods. Ep sensitivity was determined for four patients with PTE and three control patients, using 0-3 U/ml Ep. AII dose response was studied in four patients with PTE and five control patients, using AII concentrations of 0-1000 nM. The effect of enalaprilat was studied in eight patients with PTE and eight control patients, using drug concentrations of 0-10 ng/ml. ACE gene insertion/deletion polymorphism was determined by polymerase chain reaction.

vasotec overdose symptoms

Prolonged intraoperative renal ischemia requires modalities to reduce the incidence of acute tubular necrosis, but there exists no definitive prophylactic regimen. We studied the effects of enalaprilat, an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor, in an attempt to identify such a protective drug. Thirty-four mongrel dogs underwent 90 min of bilateral renal pedicle clamping. Group I was a control of 6 animals. Group II comprised 10 animals who received 12.5 g iv mannitol 15 min prior to clamping and 1 mg/kg iv furosemide immediately after clamp removal. Group III also comprised 10 animals who received enalaprilat 1 mg/kg iv enalaprilat each 15 min prior to clamp placement. Group IV consisted of 8 dogs, each of which received 12.5 g mannitol and 1 mg/kg iv enalaprilat 15 min prior to clamping and 1 mg/kg iv furosemide immediately upon removal of the clamps. Serum blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and creatinine levels were drawn preoperatively and at 12, 24, 48, and 72 hr postoperatively in each animal. The serum BUN levels in group III were significantly lower than those in group I at all times postoperatively (P < 0.05) and were not significantly different from those of group II at any time postoperatively. Similarly, the serum creatinine levels in group III were significantly lower than those of group I (P < 0.05) and were not significantly different from those in group II at any time postoperatively. Neither the serum BUN nor the serum creatinine levels in group IV were different from those of group I at any time postoperatively.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Twelve normal volunteers were given 10 mg enalapril maleate by single and 2 weeks multiple dose administration, and blood samples were collected for the determination of enalaprilat concentration and angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) activity. The mean terminal elimination half-life following a single administration of 10 mg enalapril, was 27 hours. The inhibition of ACE activity paralleled enalaprilat concentrations following both single and multiple dosing and the time of maximum inhibition of ACE activity was associated on both occasions with maximum concentration of enalaprilat. Emax modelling of enalaprilat concentration and ACE activity gave comparable values of Emax for both methods of administration. An accumulation factor of 1.7 was calculated from the area under the concentration time curve (AUC) of enalaprilat within a dosing interval at steady-state and the total AUC following single administration of enalapril. There were no significant differences between males and females in the accumulation factor, half-life and AUCinf.

The purpose of this investigation was to study the effect of an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (enalaprilat) on the morphologic manifestations of experimentally induced necrotizing tracheobronchitis (NTB). Twenty piglets were anesthetized before saline lung lavage. High frequency flow interrupter (HFFI) ventilation was used with a strategy known to produce NTB. Animals were randomly assigned to receive IV enalaprilat 0.1 mg/kg (ENP-Hi), enalaprilat 0.01 mg/kg (ENP-Lo), or saline (C). After 8 hours of ventilation, the piglets were sacrificed. Total airway injury scores (mean +/- S.D.) were 1.2 +/- 0.7 for ENP-Hi, 0.2 +/- 0.2 for ENP-Lo, and 21.3 +/- 16 for group C. Enalaprilat minimizes NTB lesions in neonatal piglets exposed to high frequency oscillatory ventilation. Although the origin of NTB is multifactorial, airway mucosa ischemia may play an important role. Enalaprilat may compensate for the reduction of mucosal blood flow by limiting formation of angiotensin II and/or preventing degradation of bradykinin.

We compared the effects of enalaprilat (0.3 mg/kg per min for 5 min bolus, 1 mg/kg per h infusion), losartan (DuP753; 4 mg/kg bolus, 2 mg/kg per h infusion) and vehicle administration on the MAP response to infusions of phenylephrine that were increased incrementally (2.5, 5 and 10 micrograms/kg per min).

vasotec overdose death

To examine the manner in which changes in diastolic performance can contribute to the effect of vasodilation in patients with left ventricular (LV) systolic dysfunction, we examined the effect of acute inhibition of angiotensin converting enzyme with intravenous enalaprilat on early LV diastolic filling. We studied 43 patients with congestive heart failure and depressed LV systolic function (mean ejection fraction +/- SD, 0.24 +/- 0.06), performing radionuclide ventriculography before and after administration of 1.25 mg intravenous enalaprilat. We measured the effect of enalaprilat on the maximum rate of early LV diastolic filling normalized in four different ways and related these changes to both LV and right ventricular (RV) volumes. Enalaprilat induced a small but statistically significant reduction in LV end-systolic volume and increase in LV ejection fraction. For the entire patient group, there was no significant change in LV peak filling rate after enalaprilat administration. For individual patients, however, the effect of enalaprilat on peak filling rate was related to resting RV end-diastolic and end-systolic volumes. In patients with enlarged RV end-diastolic volumes (greater than or equal to 120 ml/m2), mean peak filling rate increased from 1.38 +/- 0.6 to 1.71 +/- 0.6 end-diastolic volumes (EDV)/sec and from 244 +/- 131 to 297 +/- 162 ml/sec/m2 after enalaprilat administration, whereas no change in mean peak filling rate was observed in patients with nondilated RVs. These observations were present regardless of the method of normalizing peak filling rate. Thus, the response of LV peak filling rate to enalaprilat is influenced by the presence of RV dilatation.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

vasotec iv dosage

A bioequivalence study of two oral formulations of 20/12.5 mg tablets of enalapril/hydrochlorothiazide was carried out in 20 healthy male volunteers according to a single dose, two-sequence, crossover randomized design. One washout period of nine days was observed between the two periods. Multiple samples were collected over 96 hours post-dosing. Bioavailability was evaluated on the basis of plasma concentrations of enalapril and its main active metabolite, enalaprilat and hydrochlorothiazide. Plasma samples were assayed for enalapril, enalaprilat and hydrochlorothiazide using a selective and sensitive high-performance liquid chromatography method with mass spectrometry detection (LC-MS). The pharmacokinetic parameter values of Cmax and tmax were obtained directly from plasma data, k(e) was estimated by log-linear regression, and AUC was calculated by trapezoidal rule. Different statistical tests were performed on the basis of untransformed and log-transformed data and the overall residual variance from ANOVA. Assuming the accepted tolerance intervals, a beta-error of 20% and 90% confidence intervals (alpha = 0.10), all the generally accepted tests (Schuirmann test and Wilcoxon-Tukey and Hauschke nonparametric tests) showed that the formulations can be considered as bioequivalent with respect to the extent of absorption, given by the AUC(0-infinity) and with respect to rate of absorption as assessed by Cmax and tmax.

Carbonic anhydrase inhibition with benzolamide reduces proximal reabsorption and activates tubuloglomerular feedback (TGF). In rats, TGF activation for 30 to 60 minutes locally suppresses renin secretion and resets TGF rightward to accommodate increased late proximal flow. After 24 hours of TGF activation, there is upward resetting of GFR and increased activity of macula densa nitric oxide synthase I (NOS I).

The parent diacid (N-[(S)-1-carboxy-3-phenylpropyl]-L-Ala-L-Pro of MK-421 inhibited hog plasma angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) by 50% (I50) at a concentration of 1.2 nM and was 17 times more potent than captopril. In vitro the I50 for MK-421, an ethyl ester, was 1200 nM because de-esterification did not occur. Similarly in the guinea-pig ileum, the diacid inhibitor and MK-421 potentiated the contractile effects of bradykinin at an AC50 of 77 pM and 18 nM, respectively. Inhibition of the pressor effects of angiotensin I by the diacid ACE inhibitor occurred at an ID50 of 8.2 micrograms/kg i.v. in rats and 6.4 micrograms/kg i.v. in dogs. Thus, the diacid was approximately 12 times more potent than captopril. The ID50 for MK-421 was 14 and 278 micrograms/kg i.v. in rats and dogs, respectively, because of differences in the rates of de-esterification. Oral ACE inhibitory activity was determined by blockade of the pressor effects of angiotensin I in conscious rats and dogs. In rats, but not in dogs, the diacid inhibitor was poorly absorbed, whereas MK-421 was well absorbed in both species. MK-421 inhibited the pressor effects of angiotensin I at 0.1 to 3.0 mg/kg p.o. for at least 6 hr in rats and dogs, and compared to captopril was 8.6 times more potent in rats and 4.6 times more potent in dogs. These data demonstrate that MK-421 and its parent diacid are potent, long-lasting orally active inhibitors of ACE. In addition, the low activity of MK-421 in vitro contrasts with its substantial in vivo activity, and supports the hypothesis that MK-421 is a prodrug that first must be de-esterified to permit full expression of its significant in vivo pharmacological activity.

Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors have been demonstrated to possess proinflammatory properties. Persistent cough and increased broncho-obstruction have been reported frequently in hypertensive subjects on ACE inhibitor therapy. We have studied the effect of an alpha-2 adrenoceptor agonist, clonidine, on MK 422 (active parent diacid of enalapril)-induced hypotension and potentiated inflammatory skin responses in ovalbumin-sensitized guinea pigs. Clonidine was found to abolish dose-dependently MK 422-potentiated ovalbumin-evoked inflammatory dermal responses and it possesses additive hypotensive effects when combined with the ACE inhibitor. It would therefore be interesting to evaluate further alpha-2 adrenoceptor agonists and ACE inhibitors in a combination therapy in humans when single drug antihypertensive therapy of the drugs is insufficient.

Maximakinin (MK), an amphibian peptide possessing the C-terminal sequence of bradykinin (BK), is a BK B2 receptor (B2R) agonist eliciting prolonged signaling. We reinvestigated this 19-mer for species-specific pharmacologic profile, in vivo confirmation of resistance to inactivation by angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE), value as a module for the design of fusion proteins that bind to the B2R in mammalian species and potential activity as a histamine releaser. Competition of the binding of [(3)H]BK to recombinant human myc-B2Rs in cells that express these receptors revealed that MK possessed a tenuous fraction (<0.1%) of the affinity of BK, despite being only ∼20-fold less potent than BK in a contractility assay based on the human isolated umbilical vein. These findings are reconciled by the generation of C-terminal fragments, like Lys-Gly-Pro-BK and Gly-Pro-BK, when the latent MK is incubated with human venous tissue (LC-MS), supporting activation via hydrolysis upstream of the BK sequence. At the rat recombinant myc-B2R, MK had a lesser affinity than that of BK, but with a narrower margin (6.2-fold, radioligand binding competition). Accordingly, MK (10 nM) stimulated calcium transients in cells that expressed the rat receptors, but not the human B2R. Recombinant MRGPRX2, a receptor that mediates cationic peptide-induced mast cell secretion, minimally responded by increased [Ca(+2)]i to MK at 10 µM. Enhanced green fluorescent protein fused to MK (EGFP-MK) labeled cells that expressed rat, but not human B2Rs. Intravenous MK induced dose-dependent hypotensive, vasodilator and tachycardic responses in anesthetized rats and the effects were antagonized by pretreatment with icatibant but not modified by pyrilamine or enalaprilat. Strong species-specific responses to the toxin-derived peptide MK and its prodrug status in the isolated human vein were evidenced. Accordingly, MK in the EGFP-MK fusion protein is a pharmacophore module that confers affinity for the rat B2R, but not for the human form of the B2R. MK is unlikely to be an efficient mast cell activator, but its resistance to inactivation by ACE was confirmed in vivo.

vasotec 200 mg 2017-08-03

Purpose To determine if commonly administered doses of technetium 99m ((99m)Tc) mertiatide (MAG3) in the range of 300-370 MBq (approximately 8-10 mCi) contribute to image interpretation and justify the resulting radiation exposure. Materials and Methods The respective institutional review boards approved this HIPAA-compliant study and waived informed consent. Baseline and furosemide (99m)Tc-MAG3 imaging examinations in 50 patients suspected of having renal obstruction and 48 patients suspected of having renovascular hypertension (RVH) were randomly selected from archived databases and were independently scored by three experienced readers without access to 2-second flow images. Readers were blinded to their original buy vasotec scores, and then they rescored each examination with access to high-activity 2-second flow images. Relative renal function was determined after a low activity (62.9 MBq ± 40.7) baseline acquisition for RVH and a high activity (303.4 MBq ± 48.1) acquisition after administration of enalaprilat. Data were analyzed by using random effects analysis of variance and mean and standard error of the mean for the difference between sets of scores and the difference between relative function measurements. Results There was no significant difference in the scores without flow images compared with blinded scores with high-activity flow images for patients suspected of having obstruction (P = .80) or RVH (P = .24). Moreover, there was no significant difference in the relative uptake measurements after administration of low and high activities (P > .99). Conclusion Administered doses of (99m)Tc-MAG3 in the range of 300-370 MBq (approximately 8-10 mCi) do not affect the relative function measurements or contribute to interpretation of images in patients suspected of having RVH or obstruction compared with administration of lower doses; unnecessary radiation exposure can be avoided by administering doses in the range of 37-185 MBq as recommended incurrent guidelines.

In the area remote from a myocardial infarction, the activation of PKC could be detected for the first time as early as 2.5 min after LAD ligation. This newly characterized activation in the non-infarcted area can be prevented by ACEI via an angiotensin-AT1-receptor-dependent mechanism. It is supposed that this newly characterized activation process of PKC plays an important role in the signal transduction in the remote myocardium in acute myocardial infarction as a trigger for the late development of hypertrophy and heart buy vasotec failure.

The clinical pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of enalapril and its de-esterified active metabolite, MK 422, were determined in eight patients with congestive cardiomyopathy and five patients with hypertension. After administration of single doses of 2.5, 5, and 10 mg enalapril in the congestive heart failure patients and 20 or 40 mg in the hypertensive patients, serum levels and urine elimination of enalapril and MK 422 were determined. Standing and supine heart rate and blood pressure were measured as was ejection fraction in the congestive heart failure group and renin activity, aldosterone levels, and converting enzyme activity in the hypertensive group. Apparent oral clearance after administration of 5 and 10 mg enalapril was lower in the congestive heart failure patients (0.6 +/- 0.2 and 0.7 +/- 0.4 L/min) than after 20 and 40 mg given to hypertensive patients (2.5 +/- 1.3 and 2.7 +/- 2.7 L/min). The elimination of MK 422 was also slower in the congestive heart failure patients (7.8 +/- 5.0 and 6.8 +/- 2.5 h after 5 and 10 mg enalapril, respectively, vs. 4.6 +/- 2.0 and 5.3 +/- 1.1 h after 20 and 40 mg, respectively, in the hypertension group). The enalapril area under the concentration-time curve increased disproportionately to dose increments in both groups, but was more pronounced in congestive heart failure. Twenty and 40 mg enalapril lowered the blood pressure by 2 h after dosing in the hypertension group, and peak effects were seen 4-5 h after dosing. Peak effects correlated with peak serum MK 422 concentrations but not with enalapril (MK 421) levels. Supine heart rates were unchanged after 20 mg, but increased after 40 mg; standing heart rates were transiently increased after 20 and 40 mg enalapril. Blood pressure was buy vasotec not significantly changed in the congestive heart failure group, and cardiac ejection fraction was unchanged. In the hypertension group, renin stimulation and converting enzyme activity inhibition were seen at 4 h and persisted for at least 24 h after administration of 40 mg enalapril. In summary, the clearance of enalapril and elimination of MK 422 was slower in congestive heart failure patients versus hypertensive patients. Therefore, slower onset and longer duration of drug effect might be anticipated in patients with congestive heart failure versus patients with hypertension during enalapril administration.

Prolongation of bradykinin half-life following kininase inhibition has been proposed as the reason for the potentiation of kinin effects. We have reassessed this assumption by using three different isolated smooth muscle preparations and simultaneously studying the inhibition of kininase activity and the potentiation of bradykinin effects by enalaprilat and BPP9a. Rat duodenum displayed higher total kininase activity, metabolizing half of the added bradykinin in 6.5 min, while this time for rat uterus was greater than 60 min. Guinea-pig ileum showed the intermediate value of 14.6 min. Enalaprilat and BPP9a slowed the metabolism of bradykinin by 50-100% in rat duodenum and by 50-180% in guinea-pig ileum, showing that a significant fraction of total kininase activity appears to be due to kininase II. In rat duodenum, an almost complete blockade of kininase activity was achieved when bacitracin and mergetpa were used together with enalaprilat. buy vasotec Enalaprilat and BPP9a potentiated bradykinin effects in guinea-pig ileum and rat uterus. In contrast, bradykinin-induced relaxations and contractions in rat duodenum were not potentiated by enalaprilat, BPP9a, or by the enzyme inhibitor mixture (enalaprilat--bacitracin--mergetpa). The results suggest that inhibition of bradykinin enzymatic metabolism by kininases does not necessarily lead to the potentiation of bradykinin effects.

1. Experiments were designed to evaluate the hypothesis that cyclo-oxygenase products modulate the influence of angiotensin II (AII) on the renal juxtamedullary microvasculature of enalaprilat-treated rats. 2. The in vitro blood-perfused juxtamedullary nephron technique was utilized to provide access to afferent arterioles, efferent arterioles and descending vasa recta located in the outer stripe of the outer medulla. 3. Baseline afferent arteriolar diameter was 20.8 +/- 1.9 microns in kidneys subjected to cyclo-oxygenase blockade (1 mumol/L piroxicam), a value significantly lower than that observed in untreated kidneys (26.1 +/- 1.0 microns). Baseline diameters of efferent arterioles and outer medullary descending vasa recta did not differ between untreated and piroxicam-treated groups. 4. Topical application of 1 nmol/L AII reduced blood flow through outer medullary descending buy vasotec vasa recta by 22 +/- 6% in untreated kidneys and by 24 +/- 7% in piroxicam-treated kidneys. 5. In untreated kidneys, AII (0.01-100 nmol/L) produced concentration-dependent afferent and efferent arteriolar constrictor responses of similar magnitudes. Neither afferent nor efferent arteriolar AII responsiveness was significantly altered in piroxicam-treated kidneys, although afferent responses exceeded efferent responses at AII concentrations > or = 10 nmol/L. 6. We conclude that endogenous cyclo-oxygenase products exert a vasodilator influence on juxtamedullary afferent arterioles under baseline conditions. Although cyclo-oxygenase inhibition had little effect on juxtamedullary microvascular responses to AII, the response to high AII concentrations may be modulated by cyclo-oxygenase products in a manner which delicately alters the relative influence of the peptide on pre- vs postglomerular resistances.

Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) is an important zinc-dependent hydrolase responsible for converting the inactive angiotensin I to the vasoconstrictor angiotensin II and for inactivating the vasodilator bradykinin. However, the substrate binding mode of ACE has buy vasotec not been completely understood. In this work, we propose a model for an ACE Michaelis complex based on two known X-ray structures of inhibitor-enzyme complexes. Specifically, the human testis angiotensin-converting enzyme (tACE) complexed with two clinic drugs were first investigated using a combined quantum mechanical and molecular mechanical (QM/MM) approach. The structural parameters obtained from the 550 ps molecular dynamics simulations are in excellent agreement with the X-ray structures, validating the QM/MM approach. Based on these structures, a model for the Michaelis complex was proposed and simulated using the same computational protocol. Implications to ACE catalysis are discussed.

The current study was performed to determine whether baroreflex resetting after acute administration of converting enzyme inhibitors (CEIs) was dependent on the concomitant decrease in mean arterial pressure (MAP). Reflex changes in lumbar sympathetic nerve activity (LSNA) due to increases and decreases in MAP [i.v. phenylephrine (PE) and nitroprusside infusions] were determined in normotensive and renal hypertensive (1-kidney, 1-clip) anesthetized WKY rats 1) before (control), 2) 15 min after intravenous captopril (2 mg/kg) or enalaprilat (300 micrograms), and 3) 15 min after MAP was returned to pre-CEI levels with intravenous PE. CEIs decreased MAP and caused a leftward shift of the MAP-LSNA curve toward a lower operating pressure range in all hypertensive and in one group of normotensive rats. The baroreflex curve remained shifted to the left even after MAP was restored to pre-CEI levels by infusion of PE. Thus CEIs cause a pressure-independent resetting of baroreflex control of sympathetic outflow within 15 min. This effect of CEIs is most likely due to elimination of a central nervous system effect of circulating angiotensin II buy vasotec and could contribute to the antihypertensive actions of this class of compounds.

Gadolinium (Gd) blocks intra- and extracellular ATP hydrolysis. We determined whether Gd affects vascular reactivity to contractile responses to phenylephrine (PHE) by blocking aortic ectonucleoside triphosphate diphosphohydrolase (E-NTPDase). Wistar rats of both sexes (260-300 g, 23 females, 7 males) were used. Experiments were performed before buy vasotec and after incubation of aortic rings with 3 µM Gd. Concentration-response curves to PHE (0.1 nM to 0.1 mM) were obtained in the presence and absence of endothelium, after incubation with 100 µM L-NAME, 10 µM losartan, or 10 µM enalaprilat. Gd significantly increased the maximum response (control: 72.3 ± 3.5; Gd: 101.3 ± 6.4%) and sensitivity (control: 6.6 ± 0.1; Gd: 10.5 ± 2.8%) to PHE. To investigate the blockade of E-NTDase activity by Gd, we added 1 mM ATP to the bath. ATP reduced smooth muscle tension and Gd increased its relaxing effect (control: -33.5 ± 4.1; Gd: -47.4 ± 4.1%). Endothelial damage abolished the effect of Gd on the contractile responses to PHE (control: 132.6 ± 8.6; Gd: 122.4 ± 7.1%). L-NAME + Gd in the presence of endothelium reduced PHE contractile responses (control/L-NAME: 151.1 ± 28.8; L-NAME + Gd: 67.9 ± 19% AUC). ATP hydrolysis was reduced after Gd administration, which led to ATP accumulation in the nutrient solution and reduced ADP concentration, while adenosine levels remained the same. Incubation with Gd plus losartan and enalaprilat eliminated the pressor effects of Gd. Gd increased vascular reactivity to PHE regardless of the reduction of E-NTPDase activity and adenosine production. Moreover, the increased reactivity to PHE promoted by Gd was endothelium-dependent, reducing NO bioavailability and involving an increased stimulation of angiotensin-converting enzyme and angiotensin II AT1 receptors.

The short-term effect of intravenous (i.v.) angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor enalaprilat in 10 critically ill patients, being ventilated with positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP), on sodium and water excretion was investigated. Mean arterial pressure (MAP) buy vasotec decreased. Heart rate and central venous pressure (CVP) did not change. Glomerular filtration rate (GFR), urine volume (V) and sodium excretion (UNaV) decreased in two patients with reduced MAP. GFR, V and UNaV increased in two patients with decreased MAP. No relation between changes in MAP and excretion was observed in six patients. ACE decreased in all patients. Plasma renin activity increased, aldosterone decreased, while atrial natriuretic peptide as well as antidiuretic hormone did not change. Enalaprilat did not facilitate sodium and water excretion during ventilation with PEEP. Decreased MAP indicates that the investigated patients were very dependent on their renin-angiotensin system to maintain systemic perfusion pressure. Base-line MAP and CVP values were no predictors of haemodynamic and excretory changes following acute ACE inhibition.

Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors have been shown to improve splanchnic perfusion in distinct shock states. We hypothesized that enalaprilat potentiates the benefits of early fluid resuscitation in severe experimental sepsis, particularly in the splanchnic region. Anesthetized and mechanically ventilated mongrel dogs received an intravenous infusion of live Escherichia coli over a period of 30 min. Thereafter, two interventions were performed: fluid infusion (normal saline, 32 mL/kg over 30 min) and enalaprilat infusion (0.02 mg kg(-1) min(-1) for 60 min) in randomized groups. The following groups were studied: controls (fluid infusion, N = 4), E1 (enalaprilat infusion followed by fluid infusion, N = 5) and E2 (fluid infusion followed by enalaprilat infusion, N = 5). All animals were observed for a 120 min Omnicef Dosing Peds after bacterial infusion. Mean arterial pressure, cardiac output (CO), portal vein blood flow (PVBF), systemic and regional oxygen-derived variables, and lactate levels were measured. Rapid and progressive reductions in CO and PVBF were induced by the infusion of live bacteria, while minor changes were observed in mean arterial pressure. Systemic and regional territories showed a significant increase in oxygen extraction and lactate levels. Widening venous-arterial and portal-arterial pCO2 gradients were also detected. Fluid replacement promoted transient benefits in CO and PVBF. Enalaprilat after fluid resuscitation did not affect systemic or regional hemodynamic variables. We conclude that in this model of normotensive sepsis inhibition of angiotensin-converting enzyme did not interfere with the course of systemic or regional hemodynamic and oxygen-derived variables.

1. Endothelial dysfunction is seen in patients with essential hypertension or congestive heart failure (CHF). The present study aimed to evaluate the direct effect on endothelium- dependent vasodilation (EDV) of different pharmacological drugs commonly used in the treatment of these conditions. 2. Forearm blood flow (FBF) was measured in 37 young healthy normotensive subjects with venous occlusion plethysmography during local intra-arterial infusions of methacholine (MCh; 2-4 microg/min), evaluating EDV, and sodium nitroprusside (SNP; 5-10 microg/min), evaluating endothelium-independent vasodilation (EIDV). The measurements of EDV and EIDV were undertaken under baseline conditions and were repeated after 1 h intra-arterial infusion of digoxin (0.1 mg/h), furosemide (5.0 mg/h), enalaprilat (2,4 mg/h), metoprolol (1.2 mg/h) or saline (controls). 3. Enalaprilat and digoxin improved the FBF response to MCh at 4 microg/min (from 22.7+/-2.3 to 25.5+/-2.1 mL/min per 100 mL tissue (P < 0.01) and from 18.2+/- Prandin Medication 2.4 to 22.2+/-2.0 mL/min per 100 mL tissue (P < 0.05), respectively). No significant changes where induced by furosemide or metoprolol in response to MCh at 4 microg/min (from 19.4+/-2.0 to 22.9+/-2.8 and from 15.3+/-2.4 to 14.7+/-1.1 mL/min per 100 mL tissue, respectively). No significant changes in basal FBF or EIDV were induced by the different drugs. When the endothelial function index was calculated as the MCh: SNP FBF ratio, a significant improvement was seen only with enalaprilat (1.1+/-0.1 to 1.2+/-0.1; P < 0.01) and furosemide (1.0+/-0.1 to 1.3+/-0.4; P < 0.05). 4. In conlusion, the results of the present study show that enalaprilat and furosemide improve endothelial vasodilatory function, while no major effect was induced by digoxin or metoprolol. Thus, different direct effects on the endothelium in young normotensive subjects were induced by drugs commonly used in the treatment of hypertension or CHF.

In Part I, after defibrillation, with continued ventilation, chest compression and epinephrine, Lioresal Cost 8/9 L-NNA pigs achieved ROSC versus 4/8 control pigs (p=0.11). After 60 s of CPR, 7/9 pigs in the L-NNA group achieved ROSC versus 2/8 pigs in the no-L-NNA group (p<0.05). Only 2/9 pigs receiving L-NNA required epinephrine (1 mg) after defibrillation, compared to 6/8 pigs requiring at least one dose of epinephrine in the no-L-NNA group (p<0.05). In Part II, there was no significant difference between L-NNA, ARR17477 and control pigs in ROSC. However, control pigs required 6.8+/-1.4S.E. mg epinephrine; L-NNA pigs and ARR17477 pigs required less epinephrine (3.7+/-0.7 and 3.0+/-0.3 mg, both p=0.01). Shorter chest compression was required in the L-NNA group (252+/-38 s, p<0.05) and in ARR17477 group (222+/-15 s, p<0.05) compared to the control group (405+/-77 s). In Part III, L-NNA infusion caused a significant increase in mean blood pressure at baseline, but did not change CPP throughout the experiment. In Part IV, there were no significant differences in the changes of mean blood pressure and CPP between SNAP and Enalaprilat group in all animals throughout the experiment.

Nitric oxide synthase inhibition in the kidney enhances tubuloglomerular feedback (TGF) responsiveness. This may reflect either the effect of reduced basal nitric oxide (NO) availability or the effect of impaired NO release that is physiologically induced by TGF activation. However, it is unknown whether the latter actually takes place. In Protonix Medication this study, it was hypothesized that NO is released (from macula densa cells or endothelium) as part of the normal TGF loop, and mitigates the TGF response. In Sprague Dawley rats, TGF responsiveness was assessed (fall in tubular stop flow pressure, deltaSFP, upon switching loop of Henle perfusion rates from 0 to 40 nl/min) during an intrarenal NO clamp (systemic infusion of nitro-L-arginine, 10 microg/kg per min, followed by intrarenal nitroprusside infusion adjusted to restore renal blood flow [RBF]). This maneuver was presumed to fix intrarenal NO impact at a physiologic level. To validate the approach, TGF responsiveness during an intrarenal angiotensin II (AngII) clamp (systemic infusion of enalaprilat 0.2 mg/kg per min, followed by intrarenal AngII infusion) was also studied. AngII is presumed to modulate but not mediate, TGF, thus not to increase as part of the TGF loop. In untreated animals, RBF was 7.4 +/- 0.4 ml/min, and deltaSFP was 5.7 +/- 1.6 mmHg. Nitro-L-arginine infusion alone reduced RBF to 5.3 +/- 0.5 ml/min (P < 0.05); with nitroprusside infusion, RBF was restored to 8.3 +/- 0.7 ml/min. In this condition (NO clamp), deltaSFP was markedly increased to 19.6 +/- 3.2 mmHg (P < 0.05). By contrast, deltaSFP, which was virtually abolished during enalaprilat alone (0.2 +/- 0.3 mmHg), was not significantly different from controls during AngII clamp (8.2 +/- 1.0 mmHg). These data suggest that NO may well be released upon TGF activation. By contrast, AngII is not dynamically involved in TGF activation, but may modulate the TGF response. Thus, dynamic release of NO during TGF activation mitigates the TGF response, so that it will offset the action of a primary, as yet undefined, vasoconstrictor mediator. The source of this NO, macula densa or endothelium, remains to be elucidated.

The present paper presents the occurrence of 72 pharmaceuticals and 23 transformation products (TPs) in groundwaters (GWs) underlying the city of Barcelona, Spain. Thirty-one samples were collected under different districts, and at different depths. Aquifers with different geologic features and source of recharge were included, i.e., natural bank filtration, infiltration from wastewater and water supply pipes, rainfall recharge, etc. Antibiotics were the most frequently found compounds detected at levels reaching 1000 ng L(-1). Natural bank filtration from the river that receives large amounts of effluents from waste water treatment plants (WWTPs), turned out being the most influencing source of contamination, thus GW showed high range of compounds and concentrations as high as or even higher than in the river itself. In general, TPs were found at lower concentrations than the corresponding parent compounds, with some exceptions, such as 4OH propranolol and enalaprilat.

In control patients, the ST-segment shift was greater during the first inflation than during the second and third inflations, both on the intracoronary electrocardiogram (ECG) (21.0 +/- 2.8 mm vs. 13.0 +/- 2.0 mm and 13.0 +/- 2.0 mm, p < 0.05) and the surface ECG (16.0 +/- 4.0 mm vs. 10.0 +/- 2.0 mm and 9.0 +/- 2.0 mm, p < 0.05). In contrast, enalaprilat-pretreated patients showed no change in ST-segment shift during inflations on either the intracoronary or the surface ECG. During the first inflation, the ST-segment shift was significantly smaller in treated versus control patients. The chest pain score during the first inflation was also significantly smaller in treated patients versus control patients (33.0 +/- 6.0 mm vs. 64.0 +/- 6.0 mm) and did not change in treated patients during the second and third inflations, whereas it decreased significantly in control patients. In a subset of 6 patients, enalaprilat increased coronary blood flow during infusion, but this effect dissipated before the beginning of angioplasty.

Sodium metabisulfite (MBS) is a food preservative that can trigger bronchoconstriction in asthmatic subjects. Previous studies designed to identify the mechanisms involved in this response have yielded conflicting results. We noted certain similarities between the pharmacology of MBS-induced airway responses and those elicited by bradykinin (BK), another provocating agent in asthmatic subjects. Therefore we used allergic sheep to determine whether MBS-induced bronchoconstriction 1) had a pharmacology similar to that previously seen with BK in this model, including protection by a BK B2-receptor antagonist, NPC-567, and 2) was associated with increased concentrations of immunoreactive kinins in bronchoalveolar lavage. We measured specific lung resistance before and immediately after inhaled buffer and increasing concentrations of MBS (30 breaths of 25, 50, and 100 mg/ml) and calculated the concentration producing 100% increase in specific lung resistance over baseline (PC100). In seven sheep, geometric mean control PC100 was 33.1 mg/ml. Pretreatment with either the anticholinergic agent ipratropium bromide (180 micrograms; PC100 87.1 mg/ml) or the antiasthma drug nedocromil sodium (1 mg/kg aerosol; PC100 97.7 mg/ml) blocked the MBS-induced bronchoconstriction (P less than 0.05), whereas the histamine H1-receptor antagonist chlorpheniramine (2 mg/kg iv) was ineffective. Furthermore the MBS-induced bronchoconstriction was not affected by the neutral endopeptidase inhibitor thiorphan (40 breaths of a 1 mg/ml solution) or the angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor enalaprilat (2.5 mg aerosol). In six sheep the MBS-induced bronchoconstriction was completely blocked by NPC-567 (20 breaths, 5 mg/ml aerosol): after treatment with NPC-567 mean PC100 was 100 mg/ml compared with 57.5 mg/ml in the control trial (P less than 0.05).(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
