Blocker of angiotensin-1 receptor antagonist losartan. Part III. Experience in therapy for chronic heart failure and after acute myocardial infarction

, : Blocker of angiotensin-1 receptor antagonist losartan. Part III. Experience in therapy for chronic heart failure and after acute myocardial infarction. Kardiologiia 43(3): 93-98

This is the third part in a series of papers dealing with various aspects of clinical pharmacology of the first AT(1)-receptor antagonist losartan and its therapeutic use in hypertension, diabetic nephropathy, chronic heart failure, and acute phase of myocardial infarction. This part contains review of literature data concerning the use of losartan for the treatment of chronic heart failure and high risk patients after myocardial infarction. Efficacy and safety of losartan in these conditions was demonstrated in two major randomized trials. In one of these trials effects of the drug were studied in patients with chronic heart failure and in the second one therapy with losartan was started in acute period of myocardial infarction.

Müller cells, a major type of glial cell found in the eye, are postulated to play an important role in many retinal diseases, including diabetic retinopathy (DR). Complement is an integral part of innate immunity, and the activation of complement...

Intratumoral immune cells and ERCC1 expression are likely to play a role in the response of ovarian carcinoma to chemotherapy, but their impact on therapy outcome is still unclear. Therefore, 41 cases of optimally resected high grade serous ovaria...
