  • However, calcium antagonists were prescribed slightly more frequently (37% versus 24%) and angiotensin-converting inhibitors less frequently (37% versus 49%) to individuals excluded from the final study population [ 15 ] .

  • A double-blind, active-controlled hypertension component is designed to compare the rate of fatal coronary heart disease (CHD) or nonfatal myocardial infarction (MI) (the primary endpoint) in high-risk hypertensive participants, aged 55 years or older, between those randomized to treatment initiated with a diuretic (chlorthalidone) and treatment initiated with each of three alternative antihypertensive drugs: a calcium-channel blocker (amlodipine), an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE)-inhibitor (lisinopril), or an alpha-adrenergic blocker (doxazosin).

  • have demonstrated that spontaneously hypertensive rats(SHR) with symptoms of heart failure had significantly higher levels ofapoptotic myocytes than control myocytes [ 37 ] .When treated with an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor, thenumber of apoptotic cells in the SHR with symptoms of heart failurewas dramatically reduced to control levels; controls were SHR withoutsymptoms of heart failure [ 37 ] . Kajstura et al.have also reported that angiotensin II increased the percentageof apoptotic cells in isolated adult rat ventricular myocytes, andthis effect was mediated by AT-1 receptors [ 38 ] .Although ventricular function was not assessed in these studies,the observations raise the possibility that, like our findings withcarvedilol, the beneficial effect of ACE-inhibitors or AT-1 receptorblockers in heart failure may in part be attributed to an inhibitionof myocyte apoptosis with a resultant improvement in in vivo cardiacfunction, a concept that needs further study.

  • With continued elevated systolic BP >130 mm Hg and diastolic BP >80 mm Hg, an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACE-I) is started.
