The angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor enalaprilat is formed in vivo in liver and kidney by esterolysis of the antihypertensive drug enalapril. To gain insight into the renal elimination of enalaprilat, we carried out multiple-indicator dilution experiments in the isolated perfused rat kidney. Kidneys were perfused single pass with an amino acid-supplemented Krebs-Henseleit buffer containing 20% bovine red blood cells and 4% bovine serum albumin, at a flow rate of 0.11 +/- 0.02 (SD) ml.s-1 x g-1. A bolus of 51Cr-labeled red blood cells (vascular red blood cell indicator), 125I-labeled albumin (vascular plasma indicator), L-[14C]glucose (interstitial space indicator), and [3H]-enalaprilat was injected into the renal artery, and timed samples of venous blood (up to 1 min) and urine (up to 10 min) were collected. The data were analyzed using a variable-transit-time, space-distributed model with modifications accounting for glomerular filtration and the observed 14% protein binding of enalaprilat; the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) estimated from L-glucose clearance was 9.0 +/- 2.9% of total plasma flow. The ratio of renal clearance of unbound enalaprilat to GFR was 1.56 +/- 0.29, indicating both glomerular filtration and net tubular secretion of enalaprilat. Unidirectional influx from plasma to tubular cells exceeded tubular secretion by a factor of 2.2 +/- 0.5. Thus only about one-half of the enalaprilat taken up by the tubular cells was excreted into urine, with the remainder refluxing into the capillary blood stream, indicating bidirectional permeation of enalaprilat across the basolateral tubular membrane.

vasotec review

Frequently reported adverse inflammatory skin and airway reactions have been reported in subjects being medicated with angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE)-inhibitors. Intradermally evoked wheal and flare reactions to ovalbumin, capsaicin and bradykinin, in ovalbumin sensitized guinea pigs, was previously demonstrated to be enhanced by pretreatment with the ACE-inhibitor MK 422 (the active parent diacid of enalapril). In vitro results from this study demonstrate that the ACE-inhibitor MK 422 degranulated guinea pig lung and skin mast cells as well as human basophils, and enhanced allergen-evoked histamine release. Local capsaicin pretreatment in vivo of guinea pig skin decreased spontaneous and allergen-triggered release of histamine in vitro from skin mast cells. No clear enhancing effect of MK 422 was seen on the allergen-triggered histamine release in vitro from capsaicin pretreated skin, and the spontaneous release was unaffected by the ACE-inhibitor. The allergen-triggered wheal and flare reaction in ovalbumin sensitized guinea pigs was potentiated by MK 422 and the late phase reaction of the inflammatory response was especially augmented. Capsaicin pretreatment of the guinea pigs abolished this late phase reaction as well as the inflammatory enhancing effect of MK 422. Our in vitro results from capsaicin pretreated skin indicate that the reduced inflammatory response in vivo in capsaicin pretreated skin is due not only to capsaicin induced depletion of neuropeptides from sensory nerves, but also to secondary degranulation of mast cells by one or more of these peptides.

In the control period, rapid pacing induced a significant 14% reduction (P<.01) in right atrial ERP and an 8% decrease (P<.01) in left atrial ERP as compared to baseline values. In the enalaprilat period, rapid pacing significantly reduced ERP by 15% in the right chamber (P<.01) and 7% in the left chamber (P<.01). There was no significant difference in the extent or time course of ERP shortening between the control and enalaprilat periods. The number of unintentionally induced atrial fibrillation episodes did not differ significantly between the two periods.

vasotec dosing

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.

PAN rats developed severe proteinuria that was significantly improved by enalapril treatment. In non-treated PAN rats GBM GAGs were reduced, whereas in the enalapril-treated group GBM GAGs were significantly increased to control levels. Enalapril did not affect glomerular sialic acid. Furthermore, in cultured podocytes and mesangial cells PAN decreased de novo GAG synthesis, an effect which was significantly ameliorated by enalaprilat treatment.

The effect of competing elimination pathways on the metabolic and excretory clearance estimates was examined with tracer concentrations of [(3)H]enalapril, which was both metabolized and excreted by the rat kidney. Perturbation was achieved with use of the carboxylesterase inhibitor paraoxon, which inhibited [(3)H]enalapril metabolism to [(3)H]enalaprilat in rat renal S9 fraction. At 0.1, 0.5, 1, and 10 microM paraoxon, esterolysis of enalapril was inhibited by 76 +/- 7, 93 +/- 5, 96 +/- 5, and 93 +/- 6%, respectively. The lowest concentration (0.1 microM) of paraoxon was chosen for single-pass isolated perfused kidney (IPK) studies because viability was least compromised, and the sodium and glucose reabsorptive functions of the IPK remained constant. After an equilibration period (15-20 min at constant pressure, 90-100 mm Hg), perfusion of the rat kidney with [(3)H]enalapril was carried out under constant flow (8 ml/min) for 30 min in the absence and presence of paraoxon (0.1 microM). The metabolic (from 1.83 +/- 0.52 to 1.48 +/- 0.47 ml/min/g) and total renal (from 1.87 +/- 0.46 to 1. 57 +/- 0.41 ml/min/g) clearances of [(3)H]enalapril in the IPKs were decreased significantly (p <.05) in the presence of paraoxon when compared with controls. Concomitantly, the urinary clearance (from 0. 04 +/- 0.07 to 0.09 +/- 0.09 ml/min/g) and the fractional excretion (from 0.23 +/- 0.18 to 0.52 +/- 0.25) of [(3)H]enalapril doubled (p <.05). The study illustrates that a reduction in cellular metabolism of the kidney brings forth a rise in the estimate of clearance of its complimentary pathway, estimate of the excretory (urinary) clearance.

Temporary thoracic aortic occlusion can result in renal insufficiency with or without adjuncts to avoid distal hypoperfusion. In a canine model of thoracic aortic occlusion, left atrial to left femoral bypass was compared with blockade of the renin-angiotensin system. Renin-angiotensin system blockade with the converting enzyme inhibitor, MK422, resulted in restoration of baseline renal blood flow and glomerular filtration 30 minutes after cross-clamp release. Left atrial to left femoral bypass resulted in significant reduction in both renal blood flow and glomerular filtration 30 minutes after cross-clamp release. Stimulation of the renin-angiotensin system plays a significant role in the altered renal hemodynamics and glomerular filtration rates after thoracic aortic occlusion.

vasotec drug class

The angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor, enalaprilat can exist in solution as cis and trans conformers which interconvert around the amide bond at room temperature. A HPLC with UV detection was performed to study the influence of various chromatographic operational conditions on both rotamers separation and elution of enalaprilat as a single peak. In addition nuclear overhauser enhancement difference was used for the identification of the conformers. The isomer ratio integrated from the obtained 1H NMR result were 71.5:28.5 and 76:24 at 298 and 279 K, respectively where the trans was the major form.

vasotec reviews

It is now established that all of the components necessary for the local formation of angiotensin II (ANG II) coexist in the kidney and can alter local ANG II production rate. However, data on ANG II concentrations in different compartments within the kidney are limited. Recently, proximal tubule fluid ANG II concentrations in the nanomolar range were reported. Using an ANG II radioimmunoassay procedure with enhanced sensitivity, we performed experiments to explore proximal tubular fluid ANG II levels further and to determine the source of the ANG II. Total free-flow proximal tubular fluid samples (n = 11) had an average ANG II concentration of 13 +/- 2 nM. These concentrations were similar (10 +/- 2 nM) in samples collected into pipettes containing the inhibitors enalaprilat and EDTA (n = 17). Fluid collected from blocked proximal tubules that were perfused with artificial tubular fluid showed similar ANG II concentrations both in the presence (22 +/- 3 nM) and absence (22 +/- 4 nM) of the angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitor, enalaprilat, in the perfusate. Plasma ANG II concentrations were much lower and averaged 155 +/- 26 pM. Isotonic saline expansion lowered plasma ANG II levels to 30 +/- 5 pM (P < 0.01) but did not significantly decrease intraluminal ANG II (8 +/- 1 nM). These data provide further evidence that intratubular ANG II concentrations are in the nanomolar range and are regulated independently of the plasma ANG II levels. The data obtained from perfused tubules indicate that the proximal tubule adds substantial amounts of ANG II or a precursor into the tubular lumen.

The chemical stability of enalapril maleate in tablet dosage forms consisting of different formulation excipients has been studied in this work. The influence of various parameters such as heat, moisture, light and the drug-matrix was investigated. The degradation of enalapril maleate has been followed by using an HPLC method, which was demonstrated to be specific, stability indicating, accurate and precise. The degradation kinetics of enalalpril maleate in phosphate buffer solutions of pH values in the range of 2.2-10.5 were observed to be psuedo first order throughout the whole pH range studied. Enalapril maleate alone showed high stability for temperature under dry and humid conditions, however it became unstable when mixed with the drug-matrix in its tablet formulations and exposed to the same conditions. The pathway of degradation of enalapril maleate was found to be pH dependent. The extent of degradation of two different enalapril maleate tablet formulations (product A of a basic drug-matrix and product B of an acidic drug-matrix) has been investigated. The degree of degradation of the product with acidic matrix was significantly less than that of the basic matrix under same temperature and humidity conditions. In fact, diketopiperazine and enalaprilat degradants were mainly associated with the degradation of the product with the acidic matrix and that with the basic matrix, respectively. Dry enalapril maleate powder showed some photolysis, which was more significant with daylight (3.3%) compared with that under UV light (0.2%). Although the product with the acidic matrix showed some photolysis but the effect was not pronounced and the % recovery of enalapril was almost complete and within the acceptable experimental errors. However, the product with the basic matrix showed almost no response for photolysis.

The prescribing and usage patterns of two antihypertensive agents, terazosin (Hytrin) and enalapril maleate (Vasotec) were analyzed and compared over a 6-month study period, using data from the PDS Alpha Data Base. The study analyzed several variables for both physician prescribing patterns and patient responses. Overall, the two agents performed equally well during the study period, with 6-month retention rates (% of patients who continued to take the same medication) of approximately 60%. Although both drugs are judged to be good candidates for first-line antihypertensive therapy, it was observed during the study that family practitioners write considerably more prescriptions for terazosin than enalapril, while internists write more enalapril prescriptions. We concluded that these differences in prescribing and usage patterns were largely attributable to the manufacturers' marketing strategies and to how various physicians perceive the two agents, rather than to actual clinical differences between them.

In previous studies it has not been possible to determine net intrarenal formation of angiotensin II (ANG II) from arteriovenous ANG II concentrations because of the high intrarenal ANG II degradation rates (DR). This study was designed to determine ANG II-DR and to estimate net intrarenal ANG II formation during normal and enhanced renin secretion rate (RSR). In anesthetized dogs, plasma renin activity and ANG II were measured in arterial and renal venous blood by radioimmunoassay during four periods: control, renal arterial constriction (RAC), angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibition (MK 422), and MK 422 plus systemic arterial ANG II infusion. ANG II-DR was determined in each dog from the arterial-renal venous ANG II concentration difference during the period of ANG II infusion in the presence of ACE inhibition; this value was used to estimate net ANG II formation by predicting the amount of arterially delivered ANG II that escaped degradation. The average percent ANG II-DR calculated during ANG II infusion (range of 0.05 to 0.20 microgram/min) was 89 +/- 2%. In response to RAC, RSR increased from 11 +/- 3 to 24 +/- 5 ng ANG I X h-1 X min-1 X g-1. Arterial ANG II (67 +/- 11 pg/ml) and renal venous ANG II (29 +/- 6 pg/ml) increased to 133 +/- 18 and 61 +/- 10 pg/ml, respectively. Net intrarenal ANG II formation increased from 44 +/- 11 to 83 +/- 13 pg X min-1 X g-1 after renal arterial constriction. There was a significant relationship between the change in RSR and the change in ANG II formation rate.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Eight borderline hypertensive ADPKD patients with (near) normal renal function and seven matched healthy control subjects were investigated at three levels of daily dietary sodium intake: 150, 50 and 450 mmol. In the 450-mmol sodium intake period we studied the effects of renally formed dopamine by infusing its precursor DOPA (DOPAi.v., 7 micrograms kg-1 min-1). In the 50-mmol sodium intake period we studied the influence of the RAAS by administering enalaprilate (42 micrograms kg-1), followed by angiotensin II (12 ng kg-1 min-1) intravenously. GFR and ERPF were measured by continuous infusion of inulin and PAH.

We examined the effects of the AT1-receptor antagonist Losartan (DuP 753, 0.2-3.2 mg/kg) on coronary arteries in vivo in 11 dogs, using a combination of intravascular two-dimensional and Doppler ultrasound. In six dogs, a 30-MHz, 4.3F ultrasound imaging catheter was placed in the midsegment of the circumflex coronary artery to measure cross-sectional area (CSA), and a 0.018-in. Doppler wire was placed alongside to measure coronary flow velocity. At peak effect (1.6 mg/kg), Losartan increased mean coronary CSA from 7.9 +/- 0.5 to 9.5 +/- 0.8 mm2 and average peak velocity (APV) from 32 +/- 10 to 56 +/- 18 cm/sec, resulting in an increase in coronary blood flow from 74 +/- 19 to 151 +/- 36 mL/min. The maximal effect of the ACE inhibitor enalaprilat (5 mg) was an increase in CSA from 7.7 +/- 0.7 to 8.4 +/- 0.8 mm2 and an increase in APV from 36 +/- 10 to 53 +/- 20 cm/sec, with an increase in coronary blood flow from 82 +/- 25 to 122 +/- 41 mL/min. Relative to maximal hyperemia with adenosine (6 mg i.c.), the magnitude of flow increase from baseline was 0.37 with the AT1-receptor antagonist and 0.19 with the ACE inhibitor (p < 0.05). These effects were seen without changes in heart rate or systemic arterial pressure. In an additional five dogs, the ultrasound imaging catheter was introduced directly over a 0.014-in. Doppler wire, and the effects of indomethacin, propranolol, and N omega-nitro-L-arginine methylester (L-NAME) on the vasodilator effect of Losartan (1.6 mg/kg) were examined. Indomethacin and propranolol had no effect on Losartan-induced vasodilation, suggesting that it was not mediated via prostaglandins or beta-adrenoceptors. However, Losartan-induced epicardial vasodilation was partially inhibited by L-NAME, suggesting an action partly dependent on endothelial release of nitric oxide.

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 failure.

We examined whether performing renal venous renin studies under stringent conditions might predict BP improvement. Patients with at least 60% RAS who underwent renal venous renin measurements in 2008-2013 were identified. Renal venous renin lateralization ratios (RVRRs) were calculated by dividing venous renin from the stenotic kidney with contralateral levels before and after stimulation with enalaprilat or captopril. Benefit was defined as BP less than 140/90  mmHg without medication, 10% decreased mean BP without increased daily defined doses (DDDs) or decreased DDD without a significant increase of mean BP.

The effect of captopril, MK-421 and MK-422 on fibrinolysis was investigated in vitro with 3 assay methods. Incorporation of captopril, but not MK-421 and MK-422, into fibrin clots resulted in a reduction of fibrinolysis by purified human plasmin. The concentrations of captopril required to demonstrate this effect far exceeded the therapeutic doses. Pre-mixing plasmin with captopril did not lead to a decreased lysis of fibrin plates. Furthermore, none of these agents affected the lysis of 125I-fibrin plates by a mixture of human serum and streptokinase. Captopril and MK-421, and to a much lesser extent MK-422, inhibited the amidolysis of a fluorogenic synthetic substrate by human plasmin; the inhibition was ameliorated by increasing the substrate concentration. Apparently, the inhibition of fibrinolysis by high doses of captopril, and of amidolysis by captopril and MK-421, appears to lie in their effects on the substrate (fibrin and synthetic substrate) rather than on the enzyme (plasmin).

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.

ANG converting enzyme (ACE) 2 (ACE2) is a homologue of ACE, which is not blocked by conventional ACE inhibitors. ACE2 converts ANG 1-10 (ANG I) to ANG 1-9, which can be hydrolyzed by ACE to form the biologically active peptide ANG 1-7. ACE2 is expressed in the kidney, but its precise intrarenal localization is unclear, and the buy vasotec role of intrarenal ACE2 in the production of ANG 1-7 is unknown. The present studies determined the relative distribution of ACE2 in the rat kidney and defined its role in the generation of ANG 1-7 in proximal tubule. In microdissected rat nephron segments, semiquantitative RT-PCR revealed that ACE2 mRNA was widely expressed, with relatively high levels in proximal straight tubule (PST). Immunohistochemistry demonstrated ACE2 protein in tubular segments, glomeruli, and endothelial cells. Utilizing mass spectrometry, incubation of isolated PSTs with ANG I (10(-6) M) led to generation of ANG 1-7 (sensitivity of detection > 1 x 10(-9) M), accompanied by the formation of ANG 1-8 (ANG II) and ANG 1-9. The ACE2 inhibitor DX600 completely blocked ANG I-mediated generation of ANG 1-7. Incubation of PSTs with ANG 1-9 also led to generation of ANG 1-7, an effect blocked by the ACE inhibitor captopril or enalaprilat, but not by DX600. Incubation of PSTs with ANG II or luminal perfusion of ANG II did not result in detection of ANG 1-7. The results indicate that ACE2 is widely expressed in rat nephron segments and contributes to the production of ANG 1-7 from ANG I in PST. ANG II may not be a major substrate for ACE2 in isolated PST. The data suggest that ACE2-mediated production of ANG 1-7 represents an important component of the proximal tubular renin-ANG system.

Greater protein intake increases glomerular eicosanoid production in rats. Bilateral ureteral obstruction (BUO) also enhances glomerular eicosanoid production in experimental animals. To examine the effects of dietary protein intake on glomerular eicosanoid production in ureteral obstruction, we measured the in vitro production of the vasodilatory prostaglandins, PGE2, and 6-keto PGF1 alpha, and the vasoconstrictor, TxB2, and the mass of cyclooxygenase in glomeruli of sham-operated control (SOC) rats and rats with BUO of 24 hr duration fed a low- (6% casein) or a high- (40% casein) protein diet for approximately 4 weeks. The animals were pretreated or not with the angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor, enalaprilat, prior to sham-operation or ureteral obstruction. Glomeruli from SOC rats fed a high-protein diet produced significantly greater amounts of PGE2, 6-keto PGF1 alpha, and TxB2, and had substantially increased mass of buy vasotec cyclooxygenase when compared with glomeruli from SOC rats fed a low-protein diet. Pretreatment of animals with enalaprilat prior to sham operation prevented the increase in glomerular eicosanoid production and cyclooxygenase content in SOC rats fed a high-protein diet and the levels observed were similar to those in SOC rats fed a low-protein diet. Both eicosanoid production and cyclooxygenase mass were further increased in glomeruli from rats with BUO fed a high-protein diet when compared with glomeruli of SOC rats fed the same diet. The increased levels of these measurements in BUO rats fed a high-protein diet fell markedly when the rats were pretreated with enalaprilat in vivo. The values were essentially comparable to those of SOC rats fed a low-protein diet. By contrast, there was no substantial increase in the production of PGE2, 6-keto PGF1 alpha, and TxB2 and in the mass of cycloxygenase in glomeruli of BUO versus SOC rats fed a low-protein diet. Enalaprilat did not affect glomerular eicosanoid production or cyclooxygenase content in SOC and BUO rats fed a low-protein diet. Taken together, the present study indicates that dietary protein affects BUO-induced increases in glomerular eicosanoid production by altering the activity of the cyclooxygenase pathway mainly via the reninangiotensin system. Thus, protein content in a diet may modify an alteration in renal hemodynamics caused by BUO by changing the glomerular production of eicosanoids and the activity of the renin-angiotensin system.

The effects of enalaprilate on duodenal mucosal alkaline secretion (in situ titration) and mean arterial blood pressure were investigated in chloralose-anesthetized male rats. A bolus injection of enalaprilate (0.7 mg/kg intravenously) increased alkaline secretion by about 60%, and this response was resistant to guanethidine (5 mg/kg intravenously), splanchnicotomy, and vagotomy. Furthermore, angiotensin II infusion (0.25-2.5 microg/kg/hr intravenously) following the administration of enalaprilate failed to influence this response. Bradykinin (10(-6)-10(-4) M) applied topically to the serosal surface of the duodenal segment under study increased dose-dependently the duodenal mucosal alkaline secretion buy vasotec , an effect that could be blocked by the selective bradykinin receptor subtype-2 antagonist HOE140 (100 nmol/kg intravenously). HOE140 also antagonized the response to enalaprilate. These data suggest that enalaprilate increases duodenal mucosal alkaline secretion via a local bradykinin pathway involving receptors of the bradykinin receptor subtype-2 antagonist, rather than by blockade of endogenous angiotensin II or by central autonomic neural regulation.

[D-Ala2,Leu5]Enkephalin was readily metabolized by membranes (40,000 g pellet) prepared from heads of the housefly, Musca domestica, with Gly3-Phe4 being the major site of cleavage. This hydrolysis was only partially inhibited (40%) by 10 microM phosphoramidon, an inhibitor of endopeptidase-24.11, but was almost totally abolished in the presence of a mixture of 10 microM phosphoramidon and 10 microM captopril, a potent inhibitor of mammalian angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE). An assay for ACE employing Bz buy vasotec -Gly-His-Leu as the substrate was used to confirm the presence of an ACE-like peptidyl dipeptidase activity in fly head membranes. The peptidase had a Km of 1.91 mM for Bz-Gly-His-Leu and a pH optimum of 8.2. The activity was inhibited by 100 microM EDTA and was greatly activated by ZnCl2 but not other bivalent metal ions. Captopril, lisinopril, fosinoprilat and enalaprilat, all selective inhibitors of mammalian ACE, were also good inhibitors of the insect enzyme with IC50 values of 400 nM, 130 nM, 16 nM and 290 nM respectively. An M(r) value of around 87,000 was obtained for this enzyme from gel-filtration chromatography, indicating that the insect enzyme is similar in size to mammalian testicular ACE (M(r) = 90,000-110,000) and not the larger form of the enzyme (M(r) = 150,000-180,000) found in mammalian somatic tissues. The fly peptidyl dipeptidase was released from membranes into a soluble fraction by incubating the head membranes at 37 degrees C but not at 0 degree C, suggesting that the insect ACE-like enzyme can be solubilized from cell surfaces through the activity of a membrane-bound enzyme activity. In conclusion, we have shown the existence of a peptidyl dipeptidase in membranes from the heads of M. domestica, which has similar properties to those of mammalian ACE.

A sensitive and rapid method based on liquid buy vasotec chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) combined with rapid solid-phase extraction (SPE) has been developed and validated for the quantitative determination of enalapril and its active metabolite enalaprilat in human plasma. After addition of internal standard to human plasma, samples were extracted by 96-well SPE cartridge. The extracts were analyzed by HPLC with the detection of the analyte in the multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) mode. This method for the simultaneous determination of enalapril and enalaprilat was accurate and reproducible, with respective limits of quantitation of 0.2 and 1.0 ng/mL in plasma. The standard calibration curves for both enalapril and enalaprilat were linear (r(2) = 0.9978 and 0.9998) over the concentration ranges 0.2-200 and 1.0-100 ng/mL in human plasma, respectively. The intra- and inter-day precision over the concentration range for enalapril and enalaprilat were lower than 13.3 and 15.4% (relative standard deviation, %RSD), and accuracy was between 89.2-105.0 and 91.9-104.7%, respectively.

The aim of this study was to assess whether the angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors captopril and enalaprilat could buy vasotec change the tolerance of nitroglycerin in isolated rat aortae. In aortic rings precontracted with potassium chloride, captopril (1 microM) but not enalaprilat (0.1 microM) incubation potentiated the responses to nitroglycerin. It is suggested that captopril can reduce the tolerance of nitroglycerin because it is a sulfhydryl group donor.

CyA promoted CF collagen synthesis, PTC cytotoxicity (suppressed viability, growth and sodium transport), and tubulo-interstitial fibrogenic cytokine release (CF secretion of insulin-like growth factor I and PTC secretion of TGFbeta1 and platelet-derived growth factor buy vasotec ). Enalaprilat completely reversed the stimulatory effects of CyA on CF collagen synthesis (CyA + enalaprilat 6.40 +/- 0.50% vs. CyA alone 8.33 +/- 0.56% vs. control 6.57 +/- 0.62% vs. enalaprilat alone 5.55 +/- 0.93%, p < 0.05) and PTC secretion of TGFbeta1 (0.71 +/- 0.11, 1.13 +/- 0.09, 0.89 +/- 0.07, and 0.67 +/- 0.09 ng/mg protein/day, respectively, p < 0.05). However, the other manifestations of CyA toxicity were not significantly reversed by concomitant enalaprilat administration.

Hypertensive emergency is a common problem requiring an effective, safe and easily administrable agent to reduce the blood pressure. Favorable data on injectable enalaprilat have been reported from the West but no Indian study has been done in such settings. We studied 10 patients (5 male, 5 female), with mean age 47+/-0.6 years and mean blood pressure 196+/-18.95/119.4+/-19.53 mmHg, who were given 1.25 mg intravenous enalaprilat. Reduction in their blood pressure started at 5 min with peak reduction noted at 4 hours (155.25+/-29. Casodex Dosage Form 54/93.5+/-13.55 mmHg). No adverse symptoms or biochemical changes were noted. Thus, we conclude that intravenous enalaprilat is an effective, safe and well tolerated agent for managing severe hypertension in patients requiring an emergency reduction in blood pressure.

To test the hypothesis that the bradykinin receptor 2 (BDKRB2) BE1+9/-9 polymorphism affects vascular responses to bradykinin, we measured the effect of intra-arterial bradykinin on forearm blood flow and tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA) release in 89 normotensive, nonsmoking, white American subjects in whom degradation of bradykinin was blocked by enalaprilat. BE1 genotype frequencies were +9/+9:+9/-9:-9/-9=19:42:28. BE1 genotype was associated with systolic blood pressure (121.4+/-2.8, 113.8+/-1.8, and 110.6+/-1.8 mm Hg in +9/+9, +9/-9, and -9/-9 groups, respectively; P=0.007). In the absence of enalaprilat, bradykinin-stimulated forearm blood flow, forearm vascular resistance, and net t-PA release were similar among genotype groups. Enalaprilat increased basal forearm blood flow (P=0.002) and decreased basal forearm vascular resistance (P=0.01) without affecting blood pressure. Enalaprilat enhanced the effect of bradykinin on forearm blood flow Motrin Kids Dosage , forearm vascular resistance, and t-PA release (all P<0.001). During enalaprilat, forearm blood flow was significantly lower and forearm vascular resistance was higher in response to bradykinin in the +9/+9 compared with +9/-9 and -9/-9 genotype groups (P=0.04 for both). t-PA release tended to be decreased in response to bradykinin in the +9/+9 group (P=0.08). When analyzed separately by gender, BE1 genotype was associated with bradykinin-stimulated t-PA release in angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor-treated men but not women (P=0.02 and P=0.77, respectively), after controlling for body mass index. There was no effect of BE1 genotype on responses to the bradykinin type 2 receptor-independent vasodilator methacholine during enalaprilat. In conclusion, the BDKRB2 BE1 polymorphism influences bradykinin type 2 receptor-mediated vasodilation during angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibition.

To explore the effects of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors on endothelial dysfunction induced by homocysteine thiolactone (HTL). Both endothelium-dependent relaxation and nondependent relaxation of thoracic aortic rings in rats induced by acetylcholine (Ach) or sodium nitroprusside (SNP) and biochemical parameters including malondialdehyde (MDA) and nitric oxide (NO) were measured in rat isolated aorta. Exposure of aortic rings to HTL (3 to 30 mM) for 90 minutes made a significant inhibition of endothelium-dependent relaxation induced by Ach, decreased contents of NO, and increased MDA concentration in aortic tissue. After incubation of aortic rings with captopril (0.003 to 0.03 mM) attenuated the inhibition of endothelium-dependent relaxation (EDR) and significantly resisted the decrease of NO content and elevation of MDA concentration caused by HTL (30 mmol/L) in aortic tissues, a similarly protective effect was observed when the aortic rings were incubated with both N-acetylcysteine (0.05 mM). Treatment with enalaprilat (0.003 to 0.01 mM) made no significant difference with the HTL (30 mM) group regarding EDR, but enalaprilat (0.03 mM) and losartan (0.03 mM) could partly restore the EDR in response to HTL (30 mM). Captopril was more effective than enalaprilat and losartan in attenuation of the inhibition of on acetylcholine-stimulated aortic relaxation by HTL in the same concentration. Moreover, superoxide dismutase (SOD, 200 U/mL), which is a scavenger of superoxide anions, apocynin (0 Zantac Maximum Dosage .03 mM), which is an inhibitor of NADPH oxidase, and l-Arginine (3 mmol/L), a precursor of nitric oxide (NO), could reduce HTL (30 mM)-induced inhibition of EDR. After pretreatment with not only the NO synthase inhibitor Nomega-nitro-l-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME, 0.01 mM) but also the free sulfhydryl group blocking agent p-hydroxymercurybenzoate (PHMB, 0.05 mM) could abolish the protection of captopril and N-acetylcysteine, respectively. These results suggest that mechanisms of endothelial dysfunction induced by HTL may include the decrease of NO and the generation of oxygen free radicals and that captopril can restore the inhibition of EDR induced by HTL in isolated rat aorta, which may be related to scavenging oxygen free radicals and may be sulfhydryl-dependent.

In a prospectively designed randomized study, we compared the efficacy of sublingual nitroglycerine and intravenous enalaprilat in the out-of-hospital treatment of 46 hypertensive patients with pulmonary edema (defined as rales over both lungs and systolic blood pressure > 200 mm Hg and diastolic blood pressure > 100 mg). The out-of-hospital treatment consists of oxygen (6 Ll/min) via a face mask, furosemide 80 mg i.v., opioids 10 mg s.c., and either sublingual nitroglycerine (n = 23; initial dose: 0.8 mg; repetitive application of 0.8 mg every 10 min until a cumulative dose of 3.2 mg) or intravenous enalaprilat (initial dose: 2.5 mg; repetitive application of 2.5 mg every 30 min until a cumulative dose of 10 mg). The aim of the antihypertensive treatment was a reduction of systolic blood pressure below 160 mm Hg and diastolic blood pressure below 90 mm Hg until admission to the emergency department. In the emergency room, an arterial and venous blood sample was taken to determine the respiratory (pO2, pCO2) and metabolic status (pH value; base-excess; serum lactate) of the patient. Successful antihypertensive treatment was observed in 13/23 (57%) patients of the enalaprilat group and 15/23 (65%) patients of the nitroglycerine group (p = 0.54). Systolic and diastolic blood pressure on admission were similar in both treatment groups (systolic RR: enalaprilat: 179 [31] mm Hg; nitroglycerine: 184 [38] mm Hg; p = 0.59; diastolic RR: Geodon Reviews Anxiety enalaprilat: 96 [14] mm Hg; nitroglycerine: 101 [14] mm Hg; p = 0.12). No significant differences were observed between the enalaprilat and the nitroglycerine groups concerning respiratory and metabolic parameters on admission (pO2: 67 [15] vs. 64 [17] mm Hg; p = 0.50; pCO2: 46 [9] vs. 47 [13]; p = 0.75; pH value: 7.27 [0.12] vs. 7.27 [0.09]; p = 0.98; BE: -4.2 [3.7] vs. -5.7 [4.1]; p = 0.23; lactate: 4.2 [3.3] vs. 4.2 [2.7]; p = 0.98). Intravenous enalaprilat did not exhibit any advantage compared to nitroglycerine in terms of blood pressure reduction or respiratory and metabolic parameters on admission to the emergency room. We conclude that enalaprilat is no substitute for nitroglycerine in the out-of-hospital treatment of hypertensive patients with pulmonary edema.

Zofenopril calcium (CAS 81938-43-4) is a new angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, which in addition to the typical activity of the class, proved to possess a specific cardioprotective effect due also to the presence of the sulfhydryl group. In this trial zofenopril calcium and enalapril maleate (CAS 76095-16-4) were given to 20 healthy volunteers of both sexes in repeated dose regiment at two dose levels: 30 mg and 60 mg zofenopril calcium and 10 mg and 20 mg enalapril maleate. The study was conducted according to a two-period Zyrtec And Alcohol , two-sequence, crossover design, with washout. ACE activity in serum and zofenopril, zofenoprilat, enalapril and enalaprilat plasma concentrations were determined during and on the last day of the two study periods. Both zofenopril and enalapril were extensively converted through hydrolysis to their active metabolites zofenoprilat and enalaprilat, respectively. Zofenopril exhibited a complete and a more rapid hydrolysis rate compared to enalapril, which is reflected by the higher metabolite to parent drug ratio of Cmax and AUCss, tau showed by this compound. Even though only two dose levels were investigated in this trial, the pharmacokinetics of both drugs seem to be linear. In line with previous trials, both compounds at both dose levels investigated produced complete or almost complete inhibition of ACE activity in serum, for a period lasting 6-8 h after administration, the inhibition being still relevant 24 h thereafter. The tolerability of the two drugs at both dose levels proved to be very good as demonstrated by subjective and objective symptoms, by the absence of relevant adverse events, and by laboratory biochemical parameters and vital signs evaluated before and after the trial. Blood pressure showed a fairly decreasing trend with both the drugs, systolic and diastolic blood pressure values being however within normal range in all the subjects. In no case symptoms of hypotension were experienced. In conclusion, zofenopril calcium and enalapril maleate show very good tolerability and appear to exert similar activity on serum ACE. The main difference in the pharmacokinetics of the two compounds is the conversion from pro-drug to the active metabolite which is faster with zofenopril.

The purpose of this study was to assess the role of kinins in the acute antihypertensive effect of the converting enzyme inhibitor (CEI) enalaprilat in rats with severe hypertension induced by aortic ligation between both renal arteries. For this study, we used a bradykinin analogue, D-Arg-Arg-Pro-Hyp-Gly-Thi-Ser-DPhe-Thi-Arg-TFA, with in vivo antagonistic properties. Hypertensive rats were infused intra-aortically for 15 minutes with either saline (30 microliters/min) or the kinin antagonist (40 micrograms/kg/min). Five minutes after the infusion was begun, a bolus injection of enalaprilat (60 micrograms/kg) was given. The blood pressure of the saline-infused animals decreased 48 +/- 6 mm Hg (from 180 +/- 7 to 132 +/- 7 mm Hg), while that of the rats Sinemet Drug Uses treated with the antagonist decreased only 21 +/- 4 mm Hg (from 175 +/- 3 to 154 +/- 3 mm Hg). The difference between both decrements was significant (p less than 0.01). In another group of hypertensive animals (n = 9), we measured kinin concentration in plasma from arterial blood before and after administration of CEI (41 +/- 10 vs 68 +/- 20 pg/ml, respectively; NS). These results are consistent with the hypothesis that kinins play a role in the acute antihypertensive effect of CEIs in rats with severe hypertension. However, since arterial blood kinin concentrations were not increased significantly after CEI administration, the effect of the CEI may be due to an increase in tissue kinins, which could act as autacoids regulating vascular resistance.

The synthesis of a series of novel, potent angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors containing 1(S)-carboxy-omega-(4-piperidyl)alkyl group at the N-terminal of the dipeptide is described. These 1-carboxy-omega-(4-piperidyl)alkyl derivatives possess greater or equivalent in vitro potency and in vivo efficacy than captopril and enalapril. The length (n) of the carbon chain in the omega-(4-piperidyl)alkyl moiety was varied from two to six to investigate the optimal structure for long-acting ACE inhibitors. 1-[N-[1(S)-Carboxy-6-(4- piperidyl)hexyl]-L-alanyl]-(2a,3a beta, 7a beta)-octahydro- 1H-indole-2-carboxylic acid (9b), the most potent member of the series, had an in vivo area under the curve (AUC) of 685, which was calculated by the inhibition of angiotensin I-induced pressor response vs. time curves (0 to 8 h) after p.o. administration.
