Patient demographics were similar but mean baseline SeBP was higher in the OM study (163.8/101.6 mmHg) than in the VAL studies (152.8/99.3 and 156.7/99.1 mmHg), possibly suggesting that the OM study included a more difficult-to-treat patient population. AML/ARB combinations consistently produced greater mean SeBP reductions than monotherapy. Least squares (LS) mean SeDBP reductions were 19.4 mmHg (AML/OM 10/40 mg; placebo-corrected: 15.9 mmHg) and 18.6 mmHg (AML/VAL 10/320 mg; placebo-corrected: 9.8 mmHg). LS mean SeSBP reductions were 28.5 mmHg (AML/OM 10/40 mg; placebo-corrected: 25.7 mmHg) and 28.4 mmHg (AML/VAL 10/320 mg; placebo-corrected: 15.5 mmHg).

Treatment with CS866 and amlodipine induced a significant reduction of blood pressure in 2K1C-RVH rats. In rats treated with pH 3.5 dialysis solution, necropsy findings revealed features identical to those of encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis (EPS). The typical appearance was multiple surfaces covered with granulation tissue or fibrosic tissue or both. Multiple adhesions were present. Microscopic findings revealed that acidic dialysis solution induced peritoneal fibrosis and loss of mesothelium. Treatment with CS866 prevented the progression of peritoneal fibrosis and adhesions. However amlodipine did not improve the progression of peritoneal fibrosis and peritoneal adhesions. In CS866-treated rats, no signs of EPS were present.

The authors studied the combination of hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) 50 mg/d plus olmesartan medoxomil (OM) 40 mg/d in stage 2 systolic hypertension during an extension phase of an open-label 12-week dose titration study. Subjects whose blood pressure remained above 120/80 mm Hg (n=105) on OM 40/HCTZ 25 mg/d subsequently received OM 40/HCTZ 50 mg/d for 4 weeks. Increasing HCTZ from 25 mg/d to 50 mg/d decreased systolic blood pressure by 3.6 mm Hg, increased BP control rates (<140/90 mm Hg) from 70.4% to 77.5%, and increased BP normalization rates (<120/80 mm Hg) from 15.4% to 27.8%. The combination was well tolerated. Compared with OM 40 mg/d monotherapy, neither dose of HCTZ affected serum potassium, but both increased serum glucose by about 5%. There was a dose-dependent increase in uric acid but no acute gout attacks. OM 40/HCTZ 50 mg/d is an effective strategy for managing stage 2 systolic hypertension.

We have evaluated the effects of different doses of an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, enalapril (ENA) and of an angiotensin II type 1 receptor blocker olmesartan (OLM), on extracellular matrix of the heart, kidney, aorta and mesenteric artery of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR). Forty SHR and eight Wistar-Kyoto controls (WKY) were included in the study. Eight SHR were treated with high-dose OLM 15 mg/kg per day, eight with high-dose ENA 25 mg/kg per day, eight with low-dose OLM 1 mg/kg per day and eight with low-dose ENA (2 mg/kg per day). Eight SHR and eight WKY were kept untreated as controls. Treatment was from age 4 to 12 weeks. Systolic blood pressure (SBP) was measured non-invasively every week. The left ventricular weight to body weight (RLVM) was measured, and the cardiac, aortic and glomerular interstitial collagen content was evaluated using Sirius red staining and image analysis. Mesenteric small arteries were dissected and mounted on a micromyograph, and the media:lumen ratio (M/L) was calculated. Collagen subtypes were evaluated by polarized light microscopy. The SHR treated with high-dose OLM or ENA showed a normalization of SBP. The RLVM was significantly increased in untreated SHR compared with untreated WKY, whereas significantly lower values were observed in the groups of SHR treated with high-dose OLM or ENA. A significant increase in cardiac and glomerular collagen content was observed in untreated SHR. Both high- or low-dose OLM and ENA normalized collagen content in the heart and the kidney. Both high-dose OLM and high-dose ENA normalized M/L ratio; however, OLM proved to be more effective than ENA in normalizing collagen pattern. In fact, aortic collagen content was normalized by both high-dose and low-dose OLM, but only by high-dose ENA. In conclusion, both OLM and ENA were significantly and equally effective in the prevention of cardiac and renal damage in SHR, whereas OLM was more effective than ENA in terms of effects on vascular extracellular matrix.

To evaluate the efficacy of angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs) for use in the treatment of diabetic nephropathy, we examined the effects of olmesartan medoxomil (olmesartan), an angiotensin II type 1 (AT1) specific ARB, on the progression of nephropathy in Zucker diabetic fatty (ZDF) rats, an animal model of type 2 diabetes. We used 2 doses of olmesartan, a sub-antihypertensive dose and an antihypertensive dose, to specifically examine whether the drug exerts beneficial effects on the kidney without lowering blood pressure. Olmesartan mixed in the diet at a concentration of 0.001% (approximately 0.6 mg/kg/day) or 0.01% (approximately 6 mg/kg/day) was administered for 19 weeks starting from 12 weeks of age, when the animals developed microalbuminuria. Lean non-diabetic rats served as controls. ZDF rats had hyperglycemia, hyperinsulinemia, and moderate hypertension as compared to lean control rats. Plasma glucose and insulin concentrations were not affected by olmesartan, and blood pressure was lowered only by the high dose of olmesartan. Progressive proteinuria in ZDF rats was greatly (about 70%) suppressed by the high dose of olmesartan and moderately (about 30%) suppressed by the low dose that did not significantly lower blood pressure. ZDF rats exhibited hyperlipidemia and hypoalbuminemia, both of which were substantially corrected by treatment with olmesartan. The histological evidence of glomerular and tubular damage in the ZDF rats was also reduced by the drug. These results indicate that AT1 receptor blockade with olmesartan retards the progression of nephropathy associated with type 2 diabetes without affecting glucose metabolism, and that this renal protective effect is at least partly independent of the antihypertensive effect of the drug.

Olmesartan medoxomil was prepared from ethyl 4-(1-hydroxy-1-methylethyl)-2-propylimidazole-5-carboxylate via hydrolysis and lactonization to afford 4,4- dimethyl-2-propyl-4,6-dihydrofuro [3,4-d]-1H-imidazole-6-one which was condensed with 2-(triphenylmethyl)-5-[4'-(bromomethylbiphenyl)-2-yl] tetrazole, followed by esterification with 4-chloromethyl-5-methyl-1,3-dioxol-2-one, and deprotection. The chemical structure of the major impurity in condensation reaction is the regio-isomer in the imidazole moiety, and confirmed by single crystal X-ray diffraction. The corresponding regio-isomer of olmesartan medoxomil was synthesized from the impurity by similar method. Optimization of the condensation conditions reduced the impurity to a negligible quantity.

After single and multiple doses of olmesartan medoxomil/amlodipine 20 mg/5 mg FDC tablets the pharmacokinetic profiles of olmesartan or amlodipine were comparable to those reported for monotherapy with olmesartan medoxomil or amlodipine, except that the elimination half-life of olmesartan was longer because of the longer time course over which pharmacokinetic blood sampling was carried out in this study. The response profiles of BP indicate a concentration-dependent antihypertensive effect of the olmesartan medoxomil/amlodipine 20 mg/5 mg FDC tablet after a single dose and stabilization of such effects after multiple doses.

In 578 patients who received olmesartan/amlodipine 40 mg/5 mg or 40 mg/10 mg and completed the study, the mean SeSBP reduction from baseline was 31.18 mmHg, and the proportions of patients with SeSBP reductions 15 to 30 to 45 mmHg were 12.8%, 36.0%, 35.3% and 15.9%, respectively. In patients who received olmesartan/amlodipine 40 mg/10 mg, the proportion of patients in the 45 mmHg group was larger (21.6%). Moreover, patients in the >45 mmHg category showed the greatest reduction in SeSBP from baseline (53.5 mmHg for olmesartan/amlodipine 40 mg/10 mg recipients). Categorical analysis of patients treated with olmesartan/amlodipine 40 mg/10 mg in a separate, factorial study showed similar results: SeSBP reductions of 15 to 30 to 45 mmHg were seen in 17%, 34%, 36% and 14% of patients, respectively.

The objectives of this study were to identify the factors influencing antihypertensive response to the angiotensin receptor blocker, olmesartan medoxomil, or the calcium channel blocker, azelnidipine, and to discuss the possibility of utilizing them as predictors for drug selection prior to therapy. A two-way crossover study of olmesartan medoxomil and azelnidipine was conducted in 29 patients with mild to moderate essential hypertension. The 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure measurements (ABPM) and plasma drug concentrations were obtained on the first and at the end of each treatment period, and were analyzed using population pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) modeling approach. The population PK/PD models considering circadian variations in baseline blood pressure well described the observed plasma drug concentrations and 24-hour ABPM profiles. Pre-treatment plasma renin activity (PRA) was identified as a significant covariate on the maximum drug effect (E(max)) of olmesartan, whereas azelnidpine E(max) was independent of patient background characteristics investigated. No patient was found to have a high E(max) to one agent who also had a high E(max) to the other. In conclusion, the effects of olmesartan medoxomil and azelnidipine were modestly correlated with pharmacokinetic profiles, and the pre-treatment PRA level could be a useful determinant of responsiveness in selecting olmesartan medoxomil and azelnidipine.

After a placebo run-in period, 192 patients received OM 20 mg/day for 3 weeks. If blood pressure (BP) remained > or =120/70 mm Hg, patients were up-titrated to OM 40 mg/day for 3 weeks and subsequently (in 3-week intervals) to OM/HCTZ 40/12.5 mg/day, then OM/HCTZ 40/25 mg/day as necessary. Blood pressure was evaluated by mean 24-hour ambulatory BP monitoring (ABPM). The primary efficacy endpoint was the change in mean 24-hour ambulatory systolic BP (SBP) from baseline to Week 12. Secondary endpoints included: change in ambulatory diastolic BP (DBP) from baseline to Week 12; changes in ambulatory SBP and DBP during daytime, nighttime, and the last 2, 4, and 6 hours of the dosing interval; and achievement of prespecified ambulatory BP targets.

Stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive (SHRsp) rats develop severe hypertension resulting in renal injury. We investigated apoptosis inhibitor of macrophages (AIM) expression in nephrosclerotic rats and the involvement of AIM in olmesartan (OLM)- and azelnidipine (AZN)-induced decreases in the number of macrophages infiltrating the kidney. We randomly assigned 20-week-old male SHRsp rats to receive one of the following substances every day for 12 weeks: water (vehicle), hydralazine (HYD), OLM, or AZN. Renal damage was assessed by Masson trichrome staining. Expressions of ED buy benicar -1, AIM, and oxidized low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL) were immunohistochemically detected. Apoptosis was analyzed by terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase deoxyuridine triphosphate (dUTP) nick-end labeling (TUNEL) staining. All treatment groups showed significantly less renal interstitial fibrosis than the vehicle group. AZN and OLM groups had significantly fewer AIM-expressing cells than the HYD and vehicle groups. The ratios AIM-positive cells/ED-1-positive macrophages and TUNEL-positive cells/ED-1-positive macrophages in the AZN and OLM groups were lower and higher, respectively, than the the HYD and vehicle groups. oxLDL expression in the renal interstitium was significantly lower in treatment groups compared to vehicle group. OLM and AZN inhibited interstitial fibrosis progression in SHRsp rats by suppressing AIM expression in macrophages, followed by reducing the number of infiltrating macrophages.

Cardiovascular (CV) disease is a major factor in mortality rates around the world and contributes to more than one-third of deaths in the US. The underlying cause of CV disease is atherosclerosis, a chronic inflammatory process that is clinically manifested as coronary artery disease, carotid artery disease, or peripheral artery disease. It has been predicted that atherosclerosis will be the primary cause of death in the world by 2020. Consequently, developing a treatment regimen that can buy benicar slow or even reverse the atherosclerotic process is imperative. Atherogenesis is initiated by endothelial injury due to oxidative stress associated with CV risk factors including diabetes mellitus, hypertension, cigarette smoking, dyslipidemia, obesity, and metabolic syndrome. Since the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) plays a key role in vascular inflammatory responses, hypertension treatment with RAAS-blocking agents (angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors [ACEIs] and angiotensin II receptor blockers [ARBs]) may slow inflammatory processes and disease progression. Reduced nitric oxide (NO) bioavailability has an important role in the process of endothelial dysfunction and hypertension. Therefore, agents that increase NO and decrease oxidative stress, such as ARBs and ACEIs, may interfere with atherosclerosis. Studies show that angiotensin II type 1 receptor antagonism with an ARB improves endothelial function and reduces atherogenesis. In patients with hypertension, the ARB olmesartan medoxomil provides effective blood pressure lowering, with inflammatory marker studies demonstrating significant RAAS suppression. Several prospective, randomized studies show vascular benefits with olmesartan medoxomil: reduced progression of coronary atherosclerosis in patients with stable angina pectoris (OLIVUS); decreased vascular inflammatory markers in patients with hypertension and micro- (pre-clinical) inflammation (EUTOPIA); improved common carotid intima-media thickness and plaque volume in patients with diagnosed atherosclerosis (MORE); and resistance vessel remodeling in patients with stage 1 hypertension (VIOS). Although CV outcomes were not assessed in these studies, the observed benefits in surrogate endpoints of disease suggest that RAAS suppression with olmesartan medoxomil may potentially have beneficial effects on CV outcomes in these patient populations.

We report on a case of fetal toxicity due to maternal treatment with olmesartan medoxomil. At 29 weeks' gestation, buy benicar oligohydramnios was found, although the fetus had normal kidneys on ultrasound evaluation. Withdrawal of olmesartan medoxomil, maternal rehydration, and a single dose of furosemide reversed the renal impairment. After term delivery, the neonate was confirmed to have normal renal function. The case suggested that fetal renal impairment due to olmesartan medoxomil may be reversible.

Olmesartan medoxomil (Belsar, Olmetec) developed by Sankyo Pharma and proposed by Sankyo Pharma but also Menarini is a new angiotensin II ATI receptor blocker. Its indication is the treatment of hypertension. Olmesartan is indeed an antihypertensive agent with an efficacy dependent on the dose from 10 to 40 mg. It is taken once a day, because of a long duration of action. This prodrug has a dual elimination pathway (biliary and renal). The contraindications are the same as for the other sartans. One of its main advantage, besides its rapidly observed efficacy to lower high blood pressure, is its relatively low cost within this family. It has also cardiovascular and renal protective effects. The recommended usual dosage buy benicar is 20 mg/day.

Olmesartan medoxamil (OLM, an angiotensin II receptor blocker) and amlodipine besylate (AML, a dihydropyridine calcium channel blocker), are co-formulated in a single-dose combination for the treatment of hypertensive patients whose blood pressure is not adequately controlled on either component monotherapy. In this work, four multivariate and two univariate calibration methods were applied for simultaneous spectrofluorimetric determination of OLM and AML in their combined pharmaceutical tablets in all ratios approved by FDA. The four multivariate methods are partial least squares (PLS), genetic algorithm PLS (GA-PLS), principal component ANN (PC-ANN) and GA-ANN. The two proposed univariate calibration methods are, direct spectrofluorimetric method for OLM and isoabsorpitive method for determination of total concentration of OLM and AML and hence AML by subtraction. The results showed the superiority of multivariate calibration methods over univariate ones for the analysis of the binary mixture. The optimum assay conditions were established and the proposed multivariate calibration methods were successfully applied for the assay of the two buy benicar drugs in validation set and combined pharmaceutical tablets with excellent recoveries. No interference was observed from common pharmaceutical additives. The results were favorably compared with those obtained by a reference spectrophotometric method.

In patients with essential hypertension, 12 weeks of treatment reduced mean seDBP (primary efficacy parameter) by 17.9 mmHg; mean seSBP was also significantly reduced. At study end (week 52), the proportion of diastolic responders (seDBP < or =90 mmHg) was 93%. In patients with isolated systolic hypertension, mean seSBP was reduced Tofranil 150 Mg by 30.0 mmHg at week 12 (primary efficacy parameter); mean seDBP was only slightly reduced. At study end (week 24), the proportion of systolic responders (seSBP < or =135 mmHg) was 62.5%. Reductions in blood pressure (BP) were maintained throughout treatment in both patient populations. In each study, doubling the olmesartan medoxomil dose from 20 to 40 mg/day or adding hydrochlorothiazide delivered additional BP-lowering efficacy without any tolerability concerns, and the Integrated Summary of Safety also showed that olmesartan medoxomil with or without hydrochlorothiazide was well tolerated. Efficacy and safety results were similar in elderly (65-74 years) and very elderly (> or =75 years) patients.

Hypertension affects nearly one-third of all individuals in the US, yet one-half of all treated patients achieve blood pressure (BP) controlled to recommended goals. The percentage of patients with uncontrolled Elavil Sleep Dosage BP is likely to be much higher when considering the number of patients who are not even aware of their hypertensive state. Elevated BP is associated with increased risks of cardiovascular events and end-organ damage. Antihypertensive monotherapy is not always sufficient to achieve BP goals, and thus more aggressive treatment regimens need to be considered. Antihypertensive combination therapy, which may improve tolerability, offers the benefit of targeting different mechanisms of action. Numerous outcomes studies support the use of a renin-angiotensin system inhibitor as a first-line choice in antihypertensive therapy. This review discusses the benefits of combination therapy with the angiotensin type II receptor blocker olmesartan medoxomil (OM) paired with the thiazide diuretic hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ). The pharmacokinetic properties of OM will be reviewed in addition to efficacy studies that support OM + HCTZ combination therapy over other possible antihypertensive combinations. Finally, a rationale for choosing HCTZ over another diuretic, chlorthalidone, will also be discussed based on pharmacokinetic differences, clinical concerns, and trends in use.

Combination therapy with multiple anti-hypertensives is required to achieve target blood pressure (BP) control and is recommended as the first-line therapy in hypertension. Although angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) may be combined with other anti-hypertensives, it is unclear how the effects of ARBs are influenced by co-administered anti-hypertensives. We investigated the effect of olmesartan medoxomil (OLM) when it is given alone (monotherapy) or concomitantly with other anti-hypertensives in 6507 OLM-naive Japanese in "real world" clinical practice. After a 12-week treatment, BP was significantly reduced from baseline in both the monotherapy group and the combination therapy group (P < 0.0001). The BP-lowering efficacy after treatment and achievement rates of target BP were similar in both groups. In the combination therapy group, no significant difference of achieved BP level was detected between patients taking Calcium channel blockers and any other class of anti-hypertensive drugs. This study suggests that ARBs such as OLM-elicits BP-lowering efficacy as either a first- or second-line agent and its effects are minimally influenced by co-administered anti-hypertensives.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of olmesartan (OLME), an angiotensin II receptor antagonist, on an intestinal mucositis model. Briefly, daily intraperitoneal (i.p.) injections of methotrexate (MTX) 7 mg/kg were administered to rats on 3 consecutive days. A subset of these rats was also pretreated with oral administration of OLME (0.5, 1.0, or 5.0 mg/kg) or vehicle as a control 30 min prior to MTX injection. Body weight, feces scoring, and death were recorded daily. On day 4, the rats were killed, and intestinal tissues were assayed for levels of interleukin (IL)-1β and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, myeloperoxidase and sucrose activity, and histopathological findings. A significant reduction in body weight was observed in the MTX+1.0 mg/kg OLME group (p<0.01). The feces scores for the MTX+0.5 mg/kg OLME and MTX+5.0 mg/kg OLME groups were also significantly higher (p<0.001). Sucrose activity was reduced in all groups treated with OLME (p<0.05). Treatment with MTX+OLM at all doses resulted in reduced inflammatory infiltration, ulcerations, vasodilation, and hemorrhagic areas (p<0.05), as well as reduced concentrations of myeloperoxidase (p<0.001). The IL-1β and TNF-α levels were decreased in the MTX+OLME 5.0 mg/kg (p<0.01 and p<0.05, respectively) compared with the MTX-alone group. Overall, antiinflammatory activity was observed in rats with MTX-induced intestinal mucositis that were administered OLME. However, further studies are needed to elucidate the adverse effects of OLME.

Patients with essential hypertension (DBP > or = 90 mmHg and <110 mmHg) received open-label olmesartan medoxomil 20 mg/day (n = 2306). After 8 weeks, patients with DBP > or = 90 mmHg (n = 627) were randomized to 4 weeks' double-blind treatment with olmesartan 40 mg/day monotherapy or olmesartan 20 mg/day plus hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) 12.5 mg/day. For this analysis, the numbers and proportions of patients who achieved SBP < 140 mmHg and/or DBP < 90 mmHg at the end of the 4 weeks were calculated.

To evaluate the efficacy of angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs) for use in the treatment of diabetic nephropathy, we examined the effects of olmesartan medoxomil (olmesartan), an angiotensin II type 1 (AT1) specific ARB, on the progression of nephropathy in Zucker diabetic fatty (ZDF) rats, an animal model of type 2 diabetes. We used 2 doses of olmesartan, a sub-antihypertensive dose and an antihypertensive dose, to specifically examine whether the drug exerts beneficial effects on the kidney without lowering blood pressure. Olmesartan mixed in the diet at a concentration of 0.001% (approximately 0.6 mg/kg/day) or 0.01% (approximately 6 mg/kg/day) was administered for 19 weeks starting from 12 weeks of age, when the animals developed microalbuminuria. Lean non-diabetic rats served as controls. ZDF rats had hyperglycemia, hyperinsulinemia, and moderate hypertension as compared to lean control rats. Plasma glucose and insulin concentrations were not affected by olmesartan, and blood pressure was lowered only by the high dose of olmesartan. Progressive proteinuria in ZDF rats was greatly (about 70%) suppressed by the high dose of olmesartan and moderately (about 30%) suppressed by the low dose that did not significantly lower blood pressure. ZDF rats exhibited hyperlipidemia and hypoalbuminemia, both of which were substantially corrected by treatment with olmesartan. The histological evidence of glomerular and tubular damage in the ZDF rats was also reduced by the drug. These results indicate that AT1 receptor blockade with olmesartan retards the progression of nephropathy associated with type 2 diabetes without affecting glucose metabolism, and that this renal protective effect is at least partly independent of the antihypertensive effect of the drug.
