Carvedilol, but not metoprolol, was associated with a significant increase in CsA levels after initiation in cardiac transplant recipients. Although carvedilol and CsA do not interact at the level of cytochrome P450 system, it appears that carvedilol influences CsA levels through its effects on P-gp. An average reduction of 10% is necessary on the CsA dose upon initiation of carvedilol, and close follow-up of the level is essential.

Both office blood pressures and the numbers of attacks of angina pectoris and symptoms all decreased obviously in the two groups after treatment. Blood pressures were reduced from 137.12/84.36 mm Hg to 131.80/77.68 mm Hg in Metoprolol group, and also reduced from 137.72/83.92 mm Hg to 129.56/78.76 mm Hg in Verapamil group (P>0.05, compared between the two groups). In both the Verapamil and Metoprolol groups, heart rates decreased, SDNN (standard deviation of all normal to normal RR intervals) and HRVTI (HRV indexes of time-domain) both increased significantly after treatment (P>0.05). And HRV indexes of low-frequency(LF), high-frequency (HF) and total power (TP) were increased obviously, while the low-to high-frequency ratio (LF/HF), very-low-frequency (VLF) were remarkably lower(P<0.05). Compared with Verapamil group, the changes of frequency-domain indexes in Metoprolol group were significant(P<0.05).

Compared with placebo metoprolol CR/XL produced a significant decrease in heart rate by 11 beats/min at rest and 18 beats/min at peak exercise. There was a tendency for a temporal decline in peak VO(2) after 3 months of therapy in both groups, but altogether peak VO(2) remained unchanged from baseline with no difference between the groups at 1 year.

In this study, we characterized the interactions of arbutamine, a novel catecholamine developed for use as a cardiac stress testing agent, with different adrenergic receptor subtypes in vitro. These effects were compared with those of isoproterenol. In the electrically stimulated left atria of rats, arbutamine increased contractile force. The pD2 values (- log of the dose that produces 50% of the maximal responses) for arbutamine and isoproterenol were 8.45 +/- 0.15 and 8.55 +/- 0.02, respectively. Metoprolol shifted the concentration-effect curves for both isoproterenol and arbutamine to the right with a pA2 value (- log of the dose of the antagonist that reduces the maximal responses of an agonist to 50%) of 7.22-7.5. Both arbutamine and isoproterenol increased the rate of spontaneously beating rat right atria with pD2 values of 9.0 +/- 0.19 and 8.82 +/- 0.18, respectively. The affinity constants (KA) of arbutamine and isoproterenol for cardiac beta1-adrenergic receptors, as determined by competition binding assays, were found to be 7.32 and 6.04, respectively. In guinea pig trachea, arbutamine and isoproterenol produced a concentration-dependent relaxation that was blocked by propranolol. Their pD2 values were 7.9 +/- 0.1 and 8.2 +/- 0.1, respectively. Arbutamine contracted isolated rat aortic rings with a maximal increase of 38.1 +/- 6.7% that of 10 microM of norepinephrine. In rat white adipocytes, arbutamine, isoproterenol, and BRL-37344 stimulated glycerol release, with the order of potency being BRL-37344 > arbutamine > isoproterenol. In hamster brown adipocytes, the order was arbutamine > isoproterenol > BRL-37344. Moreover, arbutamine stimulated beta3-adrenergic receptors in guinea pig ileum. In conclusion, arbutamine is a novel catecholamine with similar potency and efficacy to that of isoproterenol. It stimulates cardiac beta1-, tracheal beta2-, and adiopocyte beta3-adrenergic receptors. Arbutamine does not stimulate alpha-adrenergic receptors at concentrations that were high enough to maximally activate the beta-adrenergic receptors.

lopressor hct reviews

Beta adrenergic receptor antagonists (beta-Blockers) are frequently prescribed medications in the United States and have been identified in European municipal wastewater effluent, however no studies to date have investigated these compounds in United States wastewater effluent. Municipal wastewater effluent was collected from treatment facilities in Mississippi, Texas, and New York to investigate the occurrence of metoprolol, nadolol, and propranolol. Propranolol was identified in all wastewater samples analyzed (n = 34) at concentrations < or = 1.9 microg/l. Metoprolol and nadolol were identified in > or = 71% of the samples with concentrations of metoprolol < or = 1.2 microg/l and nadolol < or = 0.36 microg/l. Time course studies at both Mississippi plants and the Texas plant indicate that concentrations of propranolol, metoprolol, and nadolol remain relatively constant at each sampling period. This study indicates that beta-Blockers are present in United States wastewater effluent in the ng/l to microg/l range.

Elevated BNP levels, by inducing sympathetic overdrive and altering Ca(2+) handling, promote adverse cardiac remodelling and VAs, which could account in part for the progression of HF after MI. The early use of β-blockers to prevent the deleterious effects of chronic BNP exposure may be beneficial in HF.

Extended (72-hour) ambulatory electrocardiographic monitoring was used to enable time series analysis of heart rate and asymptomatic ST-segment depression in 9 patients with severe coronary artery disease. The effects of beta 1-adrenergic blockade with optimal dose metoprolol were then assessed. Data were analyzed using Fourier transformation, autocorrelation and cross-correlation to examine possible coupling between heart rate and ischemic electrocardiographic changes. A marked circadian pattern was observed for both heart rate and ambulatory myocardial ischemia, with a period of approximately 24 hours by both Fourier and autocorrelation methods. Cross-correlation revealed heart rate and ischemia to be tightly coupled with a lag of 0 hours during placebo. During beta 1 adrenergic blockade the marked circadian variation in heart rate was diminished, although some periodicity in the 24-hour region remained. Ambulatory ischemia was also markedly diminished during beta 1-adrenergic blockade; however, some residual ischemia remained that was characterized by a peak spectral activity shifted to a period of 5 to 7 hours. Heart rate and ischemia were not coupled during beta 1-adrenergic blockade, as evidenced by lack of significant cross-correlation. Thus, time series analysis suggests close coupling between the variation in heart rate and ambulatory ischemia in patients with severe coronary artery disease. Beta 1-adrenergic blockade can markedly alter the periodic characteristics of and coupling between heart rate and ischemia. Ischemia remaining during beta 1-adrenergic blockade may have different spectral characteristics than that predominating during placebo administration. These differences may be manifestations of the heterogenous pathophysiologic mechanisms responsible for ambulatory ischemia and may have therapeutic implications.

The results of this study demonstrate that chronotropic support of the transplanted heart using a rate-responsive pacemaker, with activity-based sensors programmed for maximal sensitivity, improves both peak heart rate and exercise capacity in heart transplant recipients significantly more than circulating catecholamines alone.

lopressor drug interactions

Beta-blockers (metoprolol, bisoprolol, and carvedilol) are a cornerstone of heart failure (HF) treatment. However, it is well recognized that responses to a beta-blocker are variable among patients with HF. Numerous studies now suggest that genetic polymorphisms may contribute to variability in responses to a beta-blocker, including left ventricular ejection fraction improvement, survival, and hospitalization due to HF exacerbation. This review summarizes the pharmacogenetic data for beta-blockers in patients with HF and discusses the potential implications of beta-blocker pharmacogenetics for HF patients.

The hepatic pharmacokinetics of five selected basic drugs with different physicochemical properties were studied in IPRL from control rats and rats with RHF. Hepatic pharmacokinetic modelling was performed with a two-phase physiologically-based organ pharmacokinetic model with the vascular space and dispersion evaluated with the MID technique. The liver damage arising from RHF was assessed by changes in liver biochemistry and histopathology. The expression of various CYP isoforms was evaluated by real-time RT-PCR analysis.

In the present study, a multi-residue method based on a bag-solid phase extraction (bag-SPE) technique was evaluated for determination of 10 pharmaceuticals in surface water close to the effluent of a sewage treatment plant (STP) and along a coastal gradient from a STP effluent. The 10 compounds selected were caffeine, atenolol, metoprolol, oxazepam, carbamazepine, ketoprofen, naproxen, ibuprofen, diclofenac and gemfibrozil. All analyses were performed using ultra-performance liquid chromatography (UPLC) combined with quadrupole time-of-flight (QTOF) mass spectrometry. The detection limits (LOD) ranged from 1.0 to 13 ng L(-1). The method showed linear concentration ranges from 25 to 800 ng L(-1) with regression coefficients (R(2)) better than 0.9801. The recoveries of the selected analytes ranged from 11 to 65% with relative standard deviations (RSD) of <16% and inter-day variations of less than 18%. Isotopically labeled surrogate standards were used to compensate for sampling losses and matrix effects. Four of the selected 10 pharmaceuticals (caffeine, metoprolol, oxazepam and carbamazepine) were quantified, at concentrations ranging from 4 to 210 ng L(-1).

Unbound IC(50) (IC(50,u)) values of 15 drugs were determined in eight recombinantly expressed human cytochromes P450 (P450s) and human hepatocytes, and the data were used to simulate clinical area under the plasma concentration-time curve changes (deltaAUC) on coadministration with prototypic CYP2D6 substrates. Significant differences in IC(50,u) values between enzyme sources were observed for quinidine (0.02 microM in recombinant CYP2D6 versus 0.5 microM in hepatocytes) and propafenone (0.02 versus 4.1 microM). The relative contribution of individual P450s toward the oxidative metabolism of clinical probes desipramine, imipramine, tolterodine, propranolol, and metoprolol was estimated via determinations of intrinsic clearance using recombinant P450s (rP450s). Simulated deltaAUC were compared with those observed in vivo via the ratios of unbound inhibitor concentration at the entrance to the liver to inhibition constants determined against rP450s ([I](in,u)/K(i)) and incorporating parallel substrate elimination pathways. For this dataset, there were 20% false negatives (observed deltaAUC >or= 2, predicted deltaAUC < 2), 77% correct predictions, and 3% false positives. Thus, the [I](in,u)/K(i) approach appears relatively successful at estimating the degree of clinical interactions and can be incorporated into drug discovery strategies. Using a Simcyp ADME (absorption, metabolism, distribution, elimination) simulator (Simcyp Ltd., Sheffield, UK), there were 3% false negatives, 94% correct simulations, and 3% false positives. False-negative predictions were rationalized as a result of mechanism-based inhibition, production of inhibitory metabolites, and/or hepatic uptake. Integrating inhibition and reaction phenotyping data from automated rP450 screens have shown applicability to predict the occurrence and degree of in vivo drug-drug interactions, and such data may identify the clinical consequences for candidate drugs as both "perpetrators" and "victims" of P450-mediated interactions.

The purpose of this study was to develop a method to prepare Metoprolol Succinate (MS) sustained release pellets and compress them into pellet-containing tablets without losing sustained release property. The drug layered pellets were coated with Eudragit NE 30D to obtain a sustained release (SR) property. The mechanical properties and permeability of the coating film were tailored by adjusting the proportion of talc in the coating dispersion and the weight gain of the coating film. Pellets with different MS release rates were tested and then mixed together by different ratios to optimize drug release rate. The mixed pellets were compressed into tablets with cushioning excipients. The results showed that when the ratio of talc and coating material was 1:4, the coating operation could be conducted successfully without pellet conglutination and the mechanical property of the coating film was enhanced to withstand the compress force during tableting. Blending SR-coated pellets of 20% weight gain with SR-coated pellets of 40% weight gain at the ratio of 1:5 could produce a constant and desired drug release rate. The formulation and the procedure developed in the study were suitable to prepare MS pellet-containing tablets with selected SR properties.

The fixed combination consistently provides fairly constant and effective felodipine and metoprolol concentrations after once-daily administration of one tablet. It is clinically interchangeable with the free combination of metoprolol CR/ZOK tablets and felodipine ER tablets. Finally, felodipine and metoprolol do not interact on a pharmacokinetic level when administered as the fixed combination.

Aim of the study was to assess effect of therapy with b-adrenoblockers and If-inhibitors on the rate of development of coronary complications of carotid endarterectomy. Patients (n=111, mean age 61 +/- 4 years) subjected to carotid endarterectomy in 2006 - 2007 were divided into 3 groups according to therapy in pre-, intra-, and postoperative period. Group 1 consisted of 48 patients treated with metoprolol. Group 2 comprised 33 patients with contraindications to b-adrenoblockers who were treated with If-inhibitor ivabradine. Patients of control group 3 (n=30) received neither b-adrenoblocker nor If-inhibitor. There were no significant differences between groups in sex, age, concomitant pathology, and degree of stenosis of operated carotid artery. We assessed rate of development of ischemia and myocardial infarction during operation and in first 24 hours after surgery. In group 1 mean 24 hour heart rate according to Holter ECG monitoring after 7 days of therapy decreased by 14 +/- 3,7 beats/min, episodes of ischemia after surgery were registered in 4 patients (8%). In group 2 mean 24 hour heart rate decreased by 10 +/- 2,5 beats/min, 4 patients (12%) had signs of myocardial ischemia during first 24 hours after surgery. There were no myocardial infarctions in groups 1 and 2. In control group mean 24 hour heart rate did not significantly change. Significantly higher number of postoperative coronary complications was revealed among patients of this group: 2 (6%) developed myocardial infarctions, in 5 (17%) appeared signs of myocardial ischemia. Administration of b-adrenoblocker metoprolol and If-inhibitor ivabradine significantly lowers rate of development of coronary complications after carotid endarterectomy. Ivabradine is indicated to patients with contra indications to b-adrenoblockers.

Minoxidil is very effective in the treatment of severe or resistant hypertension but fluid retention and hypertrichosis have been side-effects. This study examines the suggestion that the use of small doses of minoxidil may be effective in the treatment of moderate hypertension without causing these adverse effects. Sixteen patients with an elevated blood pressure level that was suboptimally controlled by combination therapy with diuretic and beta-adrenoreceptor blocking agents entered a randomized open trial to compare the efficacy and acceptability of minoxidil and prazosin as supplementary therapy to bendrofluazide and metoprolol. Blood pressure control was similar in the two groups. However, relatively large doses of minoxidil were required and over-all tolerance to the drug was poor; five of eight patients who were receiving minoxidil experienced marked fluid retention that necessitated a change in diuretic agent to substantial doses of frusemide. Low doses of minoxidil do not appear to be effective in the treatment of moderate hypertension, and the drug cannot be recommended for this indication.

As far as we know, this is the first study reporting the electrochemical decontamination of solutions containing beta-blockers, which are pharmaceutical pollutants with a high occurrence in natural waters. The oxidation ability of two pre-eminent, eco-friendly electrochemical advanced oxidation processes (EAOPs), namely anodic oxidation (AO) and electro-Fenton (EF), has been compared at lab-scale by carrying out bulk electrolyses at pH 3.0 at constant current using a carbon-felt cathode able to electrogenerate H(2)O(2) in situ. The studies of single component aqueous solutions were focused on atenolol as a model beta-blocker. The AO process was proven much more effective using a large surface area boron-doped diamond (BDD) anode than a Pt one, which was explained by the great amount of active hydroxyl radicals (BDD(OH)) and the minimization of their parasitic buy lopressor online reactions. The EF process with a Pt anode and 0.2 mmol l(-1) Fe(2+) showed even higher performance, with fast destruction of atenolol following pseudo-first order kinetics and fast mineralization because the oxidation process in the bulk allows overcoming the mass transport limitations. The time course of the concentration of the aromatic and short-chain carboxylic acid intermediates demonstrated the progressive detoxification of the solutions. Almost 100% of the initial N content was accumulated as NH(4)(+). Multicomponent solutions containing atenolol, metoprolol, and propranolol, which usually occur together in the aquatic environment, were treated by EF using the Pt/carbon felt cell. A high mineralization rate was observed up to the overall total organic carbon (TOC) removal, which allowed reducing the energy consumption. The absolute rate constant for the reaction of each beta-blocker with OH was determined and the reactivity was found to increase in the order: atenolol (1.42 x 10(9) l mol(-1) s(-1)) < metoprolol (2.07 x 10(9) l mol(-1) s(-1)) < propranolol (3.36 x 10(9) l mol(-1) s(-1)).

Pharmaceuticals consumption in Poland is high. One of the most frequently prescribed is cardiovascular drugs. Due to their relatively high hydrophilic properties, they are not completely eliminated during wastewater treatment processes. In contrast to parent compounds, the presence of cardiovascular metabolites is buy lopressor online rarely investigated in surface waters. The goal of this paper was to develop the methodology for detection of metabolites of selected beta-blockers: metoprolol, bisoprolol and propranolol. These metabolites were obtained by the incubation of parent compounds with S9 rat's liver fraction and used for the development and optimization of the low resolution LC-MS/MS method. Accurate mass spectrometry measurements were applied for validation of this method. The incubation of the parent compound with S9 fraction resulted only in propranolol's metabolites generation. However, on the basis of hydroxypropranolol, theoretically transitions for mono- and dihydroxy-metoprolol and bisoprolol derivatives were generated for MRM mode and applied for surface water analysis. The analysis revealed the presence of some of the target metabolites in the Vistula river. This work is the first one proposing the application of biotrasformation in the methodology of low resolution LC-MS-MS analysis of metabolites of cardiovascular drugs in surface water.

The findings suggest that metoprolol and prazosin treatments reduce the minimal vascular resistance similarly, despite different reductions in blood pressure.

The imidazole ring is a common structural feature of some xenobiotics that inhibit cytochrome P-450-catalysed reactions. Histamine is a 4-substituted imidazole and a preliminary study has shown it to be an inhibitor of rat liver microsomal drug oxidation. This work has now been extended. Histamine appears to be a competitive inhibitor of the alpha-hydroxylation (HM) (Ki = 164 microM; IC50 at 20 microM = 308 microM) and O-demethylation (ODM) (Ki = 243 microns; IC50 at 20 microM = 400 microM) of metoprolol in rat liver microsomes. Of the metabolites of histamine only N-acetylhistamine showed comparable inhibitory potency to that of the parent compound. Histamine impaired the disappearance of lignocaine when incubated with rat liver microsomes. buy lopressor online This was accompanied by a corresponding inhibition of 3-hydroxy-lignocaine appearance. Histamine produced a type II spectral interaction with rat liver microsomes (lambda max = 432 nm, lambda min = 408 nm; Ks = 0.11 mM). When histamine was incubated alone with rat liver microsomes no loss of substrate was observed. The oxidation of metoprolol by human liver microsomes was impaired by histamine (IC50 values for ODM appearance at 25 microM: liver HL1 greater than 10, HL3 = 3.8 and HL4 = 3.7 mM). In comparison, cimetidine had an IC50 value of 1.5 mM using microsomes from liver HL3. Addition of histamine impaired the elimination of metoprolol by the isolated perfused rat liver in a dose-dependent manner (P less than 0.001, one-way analysis of variance). These data demonstrate that histamine can enter hepatocytes, interact with cytochrome P-450 and inhibit some drug oxidation reactions. The physiological relevance of inhibition of drug metabolism by histamine remains to be determined.

Our purpose was to determine if there are basal adrenergic influences on the coronary circulation in humans. We studied 56 patients with denervated hearts after cardiac transplantation and 19 normally innervated patients with angiographically normal coronary arteries. Coronary blood flow velocity was measured during cardiac catheterization with a subselective 3F intracoronary Doppler catheter. Heart rate was controlled by atrial pacing. Epicardial coronary artery diameter was measured by automated analysis of digital coronary angiograms. Coronary flow reserve was assessed by intracoronary papaverine hydrochloride (12 mg) injections. Regional sympathetic blockade was produced by intracoronary injections of phentolamine (3 mg, alpha) and propranolol (2 mg, beta) or metoprolol (3 mg, beta 1). After alpha-blockade, mean arterial pressure fell significantly (p less than 0.05) in both the denervated transplant (-5.8 +/- 1.5%) (mean +/- SEM) and normally innervated patients (-12.6 +/- 3.2%). Reductions in coronary flow velocity also were observed in these groups (-8.2 +/- 2.3% and - buy lopressor online 9.2 +/- 5.8%, respectively). Calculated coronary vascular resistance was unchanged. Similar changes were seen when patients were pretreated with beta-blockade before alpha-blockade. Nonspecific beta-blockade did not affect mean arterial pressure but decreased coronary velocity (innervated, -11.6 +/- 3.9%; denervated, -9.3 +/- 2.4%) and increased coronary vascular resistance (innervated, 15.4 +/- 6.7%; denervated, 10.2 +/- 3.7%). Coronary vascular resistance did not rise in either group after selective beta 1-blockade with metoprolol. Coronary flow reserve did not change in either patient group after either alpha- or beta-blockade. Changes in epicardial coronary artery diameter were small and generally not significant. These data suggest that alpha-receptor-mediated vascular tone is negligible in both denervated transplant patients and normally innervated patients. Additionally, the increase in vascular resistance after nonselective beta-blockade is the result of direct beta 2 vascular effects. Our data further suggest that there is little adrenergically mediated epicardial artery tone (either humoral or neural) at rest and that maximal vasodilator responses are not limited by adrenergically mediated vasomotor tone.

For compounds undergoing passive intestinal absorption permeabilities were generally higher in co-cultures than in Caco-2 monolayers, yielding highest values in pure HT29-MTX monolayers. This difference was most obvious for compounds transported via the paracellular pathway, where HT29-MTX cells may be up to 30 times more permeable than Caco-2 cells, whereas for lipophilic and highly permeable compounds, the difference in permeability values was less obvious. For drugs undergoing intestinal secretion mediated by P-glycoprotein, co-cultivation of Caco-2 cells with HT29-MTX cells led to increased apical to Motrin Chewable Tablets basolateral permeability which was decreased in the opposite direction, consistent with the fact that HT29-MTX cells do not express P-glycoprotein. When a carrier-mediated absorption mechanism is involved, the permeabilities observed were lower than the values reported for human small intestine and co-cultivation of HT29-MTX cells with Caco-2 cells resulted in even lower values as compared to the plain Caco-2 cultures.

The effects of dobutamine on helical strips of isolated canine cerebral, coronary, mesenteric, and Lanoxin Cost renal arteries was investigated. Dobutamine contracted only renal arterial strips under resting condition. When renal and mesenteric arterial strips were partially contracted with prostaglandin F2 alpha (PGF2 alpha), dobutamine caused further concentration-related contraction, while coronary arterial strips were relaxed. Cerebral arterial strips, on the other hand, did not significantly respond to dobutamine. After treatment with 10(-5) M dl-phenoxybenzamine hydrochloride (POB) for 1 h, dobutamine-induced contractions of partially precontracted mesenteric and renal arterial strips were converted to relaxations. Relaxations of coronary arteries were not potentiated by the alpha-antagonist, but were attenuated by treatment with 10(-6) M propranolol and 10(-6) M metoprolol to a similar extent. On the other hand, relaxations of mesenteric and renal arterial strips were not inhibited by metoprolol but by propranolol. Droperidol (3 X 10(-5) M) failed to significantly alter the concentration-response curve for dobutamine. These results suggest that dobutamine causes vasoconstriction mediated by apha-adrenergic receptor and vasodilatation mediated by beta 1- and beta 2-adrenoceptors. Dobutamine does not appear to act on dopamine receptors.

The incidence of perioperative stroke was 55 of 57,218 (0.09%). Preoperative metoprolol was associated with an approximately 4.2-fold increase in perioperative stroke (P < 0.001; 95% CI, 2.2-8.1). Analysis of matched cohorts revealed a significantly higher incidence of stroke in patients taking preoperative metoprolol compared with atenolol (P = 0.016 Cleocin Cream Dosage ). However, preoperative metoprolol was not an independent predictor of stroke in the entire cohort, which included patients who were not taking β blockers. The use of intraoperative metoprolol was associated with a 3.3-fold increase in perioperative stroke (P = 0.003; 95% CI, 1.4-7.8); no association was found for intraoperative esmolol or labetalol.

DDI prediction using the static approach based on total concentration indicated that AZD20066 has a potential risk for inhibition. However, no DDI risk could be predicted when a more in vivo-like dynamic prediction method with the PBPK with SimCYP™ software based on early human PK data was used and more parameters (i.e. free fraction in plasma, no DDI risk) were taken into account. The clinical cocktail study showed Effexor Max Dose no or low risks for clinical relevant DDI interactions. Our findings are in line with the hypothesis that the dynamic prediction method predicts DDI in vivo in humans better than the static model based on total plasma concentrations.

The pharmacokinetics of metoprolol and propranolol in 6 healthy volunteers were compared after an intravenous dose of 10 mg of each drug. The mean t1/2, beta was 3.6 hr for both drugs, but due to a larger volume of distribution, the total body clearance was significantly higher for metoprolol (1.20 liters/min) than for propranolol (0.81 liters/min). The individual pharmacokinetic data were used to calculate the doses required to increase the amount of each drug in the body to 10 and 20 mg at 90 and 180 min respectively after an initial intravenous dose of 5.0 mg. The effect on exercise heart rate was determined 30 min after each dose. After identical doses, the two drugs had similar beta-blocking effects in terms of reducing exercise-induced tachycardia. These effects increased with the dose administered. The plasma levels of propranolol were twice as high as those of metoprolol for identical degrees of beta-blockade. The slope of the regression line for Cumulative Accutane Dose the relationship between the beta-blocking effect and log plasma concentrations was the same for the two drugs.

Forty-five hypertensive patients (I-II WHO), after two weeks wash out, were randomly allocated to receive 100 mg/day atenolol, 200 mg/day metoprolol and 10 mg/day mepindolol for three months, in order to evaluate their possible effect on lipid metabolism. Plasma triglyceride levels were increased by the three drug treatments; the increase was, however, greater after mepindolol. Total cholesterol was unchanged by atenolol, increased by metoprolol and decreased by mepindolol. HDL-cholesterol was unchanged by atenolol, decreased by metoprolol and increased by mepindolol, whereas LDL-cholesterol was increased by atenolol, unchanged by metoprolol and decreased by mepindolol. Therefore, the LDL/HDL ratio was decreased by mepindolol (from 3.15 +/- 1.71 to 2. Combivir Generic Teva 92 +/- 1.17) and increased by atenolol and metoprolol. The results show that the treatment with atenolol, metoprolol and mepindolol does not significantly affect the lipid levels suggesting that cardioselective beta-blockers as well as those with ISA have no untoward effect on lipid metabolism.

Gastrointestinal (GI) absorption of the beta-adrenoceptor blocker metoprolol was investigated in five healthy subjects by means of an intubation method, employing a triple-lumen tube introduced into the intestine, and a twin-lumen tube in the stomach. Metoprolol was introduced into the stomach with a homogenized meal containing a nonabsorbable marker, [14C]-PEG 4000, and another marker, PEG 4000, was perfused continuously into the duodenum just below the pylorus. Samples of GI contents were collected at regular intervals over 4 h in the stomach and at two different levels in the upper small intestine. Metoprolol was not absorbed from the stomach. Approximately 60% of the amount of drug emptied from the stomach was absorbed from the duodenum; about 50% of that leaving the duodenum was absorbed from the first part of the jejunum. The delivery process was the rate-limiting factor of metoprolol absorption in these segments of the gut. Plasma concentrations reflected drug loss from the lumen and were higher in subjects exhibiting faster gastric emptying and higher absorption rates in the duodenum and jejunum. The intubation technique appeared to be a suitable method for investigating drug absorption from the GI tract in man.

There is increasing evidence that mechano-electric feedback, defined as a change in mechanical state that precedes and alters transmembrane potential, operates in a wide variety of preparations and species including man. Load reduction is becoming a common therapeutic tool in a variety of clinical settings but the electrophysiological effects of these manoeuvres is not known. In this study the effect of changes in loading conditions on the time course of ventricular repolarisation were examined in the in situ heart in 13 pigs anaesthetised with halothane. Monophasic action potentials, electrocardiograms and segment length changes were recorded from the left ventricular epicardium using suction operated devices. Afterload was decreased by intravenous infusion of sodium nitroprusside, and increased by aortic cross clamping. Infusion of sodium nitroprusside resulted in a rise in action potential duration (measured at 70% repolarisation) in all 21 infusions (mean 3.4 ms), which was linearly related to the fall in systolic left ventricular pressure (r = 0.72, p less than 0.001) and the change in minimum systolic segment length (r = 0.46, p less than 0.05), but not to the change in maximum diastolic length (r = 0.33, NS). Aortic constriction, sufficient to elevate peak systolic left ventricular pressure back to the control level, restored the changes in action potential duration to normal. In addition, there were concomitant changes in the QT interval and T wave of the epicardial ECG. These findings show that mechano-electric feedback operates in the in situ heart and has potential importance in the clinical setting where changes in systemic blood pressure may directly alter cardiac electrophysiology.

A rapid and simple method for quantitation of metformin (MET) in human plasma by HPLC-MS/MS was developed and validated. The sample preparation consists of plasma deproteinization using acetonitrile. The mobile phase consisted of water-acetonitrile and formic acid (55/45/0.048, v/v/%) and the run time was 3 min. A pursuit C(18) (100 mm x 2.0 mm i.d., 3 microm) column connected to a guard column MS-pursuit (0.20 mm x 0.20 mm i.d., 5 microm) was used. The range of the calibration curve was from 20 to 5000 ng/mL, the limit of quantitation being 20 ng/mL. The detection was performed on a mass spectrometer (ESI+), using metoprolol as internal standard. The calibration curves have r(2) values of 0.995 (CV=0.24%, n=10). The accuracy and precision were between 90.74 and 106.7% and coefficients of variations (CV) of 1.10 and 4.35%, respectively. The method was applied to determine the pharmacokinetic parameters: C(max) (1667.25 ng/mL) and T(max) (3.89 h).

We attempted to streamline clearance predictions by combining experiments into one. Firstly, we combined the free fraction experiments into one free fraction ratio by measuring the partitioning of compound between plasma and microsomes, and by applying this experimental ratio to clearance predictions found that it performed at least as well as free fractions determined separately. We also incubated compounds with plasma added to the incubation mixture and compared the predicted clearances to values determined using traditional mathematical protein binding corrections.

In CHF, atrial fibrillation significantly increases the risk for death and heart failure hospitalization, but is not an independent risk factor for mortality after adjusting for other predictors of prognosis. Treatment with carvedilol compared with metoprolol offers additional benefits among patients with atrial fibrillation. Onset of new atrial fibrillation in patients on long-term beta-blocker therapy is associated with significant increased subsequent risk of mortality and morbidity.
