By Meredith, Peter A Key words: Candesartan - Cardiovascular disease - Heart failure - Hypertension ABSTRACT Therapeutic interventions that block the renin-angiotensin- aldosterone system (RAAS) have an important role in slowing the progression of cardiovascular risk factors to established cardiovascular diseases. In recent years, angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) have emerged as effective and well-tolerated alternatives to an anglotensin-converting enzyme Inhibitor (ACEi) for RAAS...

A British study confirming the safety of the drug Lisinopril could help people who have suffered a stroke. High blood pressure is common immediately after a stroke and such patients tend to have a worse outcome than those with normal blood pressure. Therefore, scientists believe it might be helpful to have a drug available that would lower blood pressure immediately after a stroke occurs. However, trials to date have shown variable results, probably because treatment was either started...

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - When pregnant women take ACE inhibitor medication during their first trimester, the risk of the infants having major malformations is more than doubled, according to a study in this week's New England Journal of Medicine. Angiotensin-converting-enzyme (or ACE) inhibitors are widely used to treat high blood pressure, and are often prescribed for people with diabetes. Many formulations are available, sold under numerous brand names. "Exposure to ACE...

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Compared with patients of other ethnicities, black and East Asian patients are at increased risk for various adverse reactions when taking cardiovascular drugs, according to a report in the British Medical Journal. Ethnic group "may be one determinant of harms of a given treatment in the individual patient, either because it acts as a surrogate measure of genetic make up or because cultural factors alter the risk," senior author Dr. Robin E. Ferner and...
