Isosorbide dinitrate inhibits platelet function in vivo at concentrations about 10 times lower than in vitro (10(-7)-10(-6) vs. 10(-6)-10(-5) M). We investigated two possible reasons for this difference. Isosorbide dinitrate and its in vivo longer-lived metabolites, isosorbide-2- and isosorbide-5-mononitrate were incubated for 5 min with human platelet-rich plasma or washed platelets; irreversible aggregation was induced with threshold doses of ADP, adrenaline, collagen, arachidonic acid and thrombin, and thromboxane (TX) B2 production was measured by radioimmunoassay. Moreover, the concentration of exogenous prostacyclin required to inhibit platelet aggregation by 50% (IC50) after preincubation with isosorbide dinitrate or vehicle was determined. At 10(-7) M, only isosorbide-2-mononitrate inhibited aggregation (-12%, p less than 0.05) and TX production (-36%, p less than 0.01) by ADP. At 10(-6) M isosorbide-2-mononitrate inhibited aggregation by adrenaline more than the dinitrate (-41% vs. -25%, p less than 0.05). In addition, at supra-threshold doses of all the aggregating agents, isosorbide dinitrate decreased IC50 of prostacyclin from 2.7 +/- 1.2 to 0.36 +/- 0.2 nM. Generation of a platelet-active metabolite and synergism with prostacyclin are new properties of isosorbide dinitrate that may account for antiplatelet effects in vivo.

The efficacy of the isosorbide mononitrate preparations ISMN-20 (elantan 20) and ISMN-50 (elantan long) and the influence of the time of dosage on the quality of life was investigated in 3624 patients with the clinical diagnosis coronary heart disease and stable angina pectoris in an open multi-center trial. The frequency of attacks was significantly reduced (p less than 0.001) during 4 weeks of therapy. 35.4% of patients were free from attacks by the end of the trial. Consumption of acute nitrates decreased from an average of 5 to 2 applications per week. Circadian rhythm in the patients' profile of attacks remained unchanged under mononitrate therapy which allows the conclusion that this therapy is well adapted to the daily routine. The times of dosage of ISMN-20 (in the morning and at lunch-time or in the morning and in the evening) both had an identically good effect on the reduction of the attacks at night. ISMN-20 as well as ISMN-50 proved to provide efficient protection at night. After 4 weeks of therapy 86% of the patients showed an improvement of the loads of daily routine (climbing stairs, fast walking etc.). 71% noted an improvement in former limited recreational activities and 76.5% a relief concerning former limited activities in their job. 79.6% of patients felt an improvement of their quality of life by the mononitrate treatment. 70.8% of study patients were motivated for a consequent long-term therapy with the mononitrate with priority for the sustained release preparation.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

During the night/morning hours, healthy controls demonstrated faster HF max. velocity (P=0.002) and higher HF gradient (P=0.011) than angina patients. Metoprolol and IS-5-MN increased the HF gradient (P=0.008 and P=0.003, respectively), and metoprolol tended to increase the max. velocity (P=0.02). Metoprolol substantially decreased the LF/HF gradient (P=0.001), velocity (P=0.008) and max. velocity (P=0.0001).

IMN did not shorten the admission to delivery interval as compared with placebo [mean difference of -1.6 hours (95% CI -5.1,1.9, P = 0.37)], despite being more effective than placebo in inducing a change in Bishop score [mean difference of 0.65 (95% CI 0.14,1.17, P = 0.013)]. While both groups found the overall experience of home treatment to be positive, (mean score of 3.8/10 +/- 2.3/10 for the IMN group, where 1 = extremely good and 10 = not at all good) women in the placebo group found it marginally more positive than those in the IMN group (just over half a unit on a 10-point scale, P = 0.043). There were no differences between the groups in the pain or anxiety experienced or willingness to take the treatment in a subsequent pregnancy.

1. The hypotensive effects of glyceryl trinitrate (GTN, 0.5 mg kg-1) but not of 3-morpholino-sydnonimine (SIN-1, 0.125 mg kg-1) in anaesthetized rats were attenuated following a seven day (using a q.i.d. dosing schedule) oral treatment with isosorbide-5-mononitrate (IS-5-MN; 5 mg kg-1) indicative of the induction of tolerance to GTN but not to SIN-1. The hypotensive effects of GTN did not decline when the sulphydryl (SH) containing angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (ACE-1), captopril (CPT, 5 mg kg-1) or the structurally unrelated SH-containing, N-acetylcysteine (NAC, 10 mg kg-1) but not the non-SH-containing ACE-I, enalaprilat (ENA, 5 mg kg-1) were given together with IS-5-MN for the seven days treatment. 2. The attenuated hypotensive effects of GTN (0.5 mg kg-1) in rats treated with IS-5-MN were also restored when CPT (1 mg kg-1) or NAC (2.5 mg kg-1) but not ENA (1 mg kg-1) was administered intraperitoneally (i.p.) 30 min before GTN. Furthermore, in control rats, CPT or NAC but not ENA given i.p. 30 min before GTN, potentiated its haemodynamic effects. These effects were blocked by methylene blue (10 mg kg-1). At the same doses, CPT or NAC did not affect the hypotensive effects of SIN-1. 3. The reduced ability of cultured tolerant smooth muscle cells (SMC, 24 x 103 cells) or endothelial cells(EC, 40 x 103 cells) to potentiate the anti-platelet effects of GTN (44 microM) was restored by CPT or NAC but not by ENA or glutathione (all at 0.5 mM). Potentiation of the anti-platelet effects of tolerant SMC or EC by CPT or NAC was abolished by co-incubation with oxyhaemoglobin (Oxy-Hb, 10 microM)indicative of nitric oxide (NO) formation.4. When GTN (150-2400 microM) was incubated with CPT, NAC or glutathione but not ENA (all at 0.1 mM) for 30 min in Krebs buffer at 37 degrees C a concentration-dependent increase in nitrite (NO2-)formation was observed. 5. The antiplatelet effects of GTN (5.5-352 microM) were potentiated by co-incubation with CPT or NAC but not with ENA or glutathione (all at 0.5 mM). The concentration of GTN required to inhibit platelet aggregation by 50% (IC50) was 110 +/- 2 microM for GTN alone, 14 +/- 2 microM for GTN in the presence of NAC and 30 +/- 2 microM for GTN in the presence of CPT. The potentiation of the effects of GTN by CPT or NAC was inhibited by co-incubation with Oxy-Hb (10 microM). By themselves, CPT or NAC did not inhibit platelet aggregation.6. The ability of CPT to restore (a) the haemodynamic effects of GTN in tolerant rats and (b) the reduced capacity of tolerant SMC or EC to potentiate the anti-platelet effects of GTN is not related to its ACE inhibitory activity.7. CPT also potentiated the hypotensive effects of GTN in non-tolerant rats, and in vitro CPT released NO from GTN in the absence of a GTN to NO converting cell, so that it is unlikely that reversal of tolerance by CPT is due to the replenishment of intracellular thiols. Rather it can be explained by the ability of CPT to release NO from GTN in the extracellular space. This extracellular formation of NO from GTN by CPT would then compensate for the impaired enzymic biotransformation of GTN to NO that develops during tolerance as was originally proposed for NAC.

Using the non-surgical rat mesenteric window angiogenesis assay, we studied the systemic effect of (i) the nitric oxide (NO)-releasing vasodilator isosorbide-5-mononitrate (ISMN) and (ii) the NO-synthase inhibitor L-NAME on angiogenesis induced by the intraperitoneal injection of bFGF and VEGF165. The response was assessed objectively and quantitatively by microscopic morphometry and image analysis in terms of the vascularized area (VA; a measurement of microvessel spatial extension), the microvascular length (MVL; a composite measurement of microvessel density), the total microvascular length (TMVL=VA x MVL), the number of microvessel segments per unit tissue volume (No. MS), the length of the microvessel segments (Le. MS) and the degree of microvessel tortuosity (MVT). Additional architectural features of the network were assessed in terms of variables introduced here: the number of microvessel branching points per unit tissue volume (No. BP), the index of interconnecting microvessel loop formation (In. LF), the index of microvessel intersection (In. IS), the number of microvessel sprouts per unit tissue volume (No. SP) and their length (Le. SP). In bFGF-mediated angiogenesis, L-NAME significantly, augmented angiogenesis, whereas ISMN significantly inhibited angiogenesis. By contrast, neither L-NAME nor ISMN affected the angiogenic response to VEGF165.

Isosorbide-mononitrate used alone or in combination with beta blockers does not seem to offer any reduction in bleeding in the primary or secondary prevention of oesophageal varices. Compared with endoscopic therapy, there may be a survival advantage in using IsMn and beta-blockers, but additional large multicentre trials are needed to verify this finding.

Although high concentrations of NO are cytotoxic, it is unlikely that administration of NO at an increased dose would be useful in the management of oral cancer because this would result in unacceptable systemic side effects. The possible manipulation of NO in oral cancer is discussed.

The influence of food on the absorption characteristics of slow release isosorbide-5-mononitrate tablets was investigated in 10 normal healthy volunteers. There were no differences in the peak concentration achieved or the area under the curve, but the peak concentration occurred later when the drug was administered after food. The apparent elimination half-life ranged from 4.7 to 10.1 h. Bioavailability of slow-release isosorbide-5-mononitrate is therefore unaffected by food, but there is a slower rate of absorption.

A method for the determination of isosorbide-5-mononitrate (5-ISMN) in human plasma by capillary gas chromatography with electron-capture detection was developed and applied to clinical samples. 9-Fluorenone was used as an internal standard, ethyl acetate was employed for liquid-liquid extraction. The advantage of the extraction procedure is the possibility of a direct injection of the plasma extract, without solvent removal/reconstitution Prograf 1 Mg Yan Etkileri of the sample. The precision and accuracy of the method were satisfactory in the concentration range 10-1600 ng/ml. The lower limit of quantification was 10 ng/ml.

Before the morning (0800-hour) dose, exercise duration increased by 0.53 minutes in placebo recipients and by 0.85 minutes in those receiving IS-5-MN therapy (P = 0.10). Neither nocturnal nor early-morning anginal attacks increased during IS-5-MN therapy compared with placebo. Headaches occurred in 19 (32%) patients in the IS-5-MN group and in 9 (15%) patients in the placebo group but necessitated discontinuation of treatment in only 2 (3%) patients in the IS-5-MN group.

To study the circadian variation of Biaxin 500 Mg Sinus Infection cardiac performance in patients with coronary heart disease, three exercise tests on a bicycle ergometer were performed during the active part of the day (10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.), recording ST-segment depression and pulmonary capillary wedge pressure. Ten male patients with angiographically documented coronary heart disease underwent bicycle ergometry during placebo and during nitrate therapy (placebo controlled, double-blind crossover 2 x 20 mg IS-5-MN and 1 x 120 mg ISDN sustained release). During placebo as well as during nitrate therapy there was a gradual decrease of cardiac performance during the day, documented by the increase in ST-depression and pulmonary capillary wedge pressure at equal work loads. High nitrate concns led to a significant reduction of both ST-depression and preload with a marked circadian-phase dependency of cardiovascular effects.

Isosorbide 5-mononitrate is an active metabolite of isosorbide dinitrate and possesses many theoretical advantages over its parent drug. However, the development of partial tolerance has been demonstrated when the drug is given 12 hourly or 8 hourly. We have therefore evaluated the acute and sustained (2 weeks) effects of isosorbide-5-mononitrate 40 mg given twice daily (08.00 h and 14.00 h, allowing an 18-h dose-free period) in 19 patients with stable chronic angina, using computerized exercise testing and a placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomized trial protocol. There were two phases of 2 weeks each in which patients received placebo or active isosorbide-5-mononitrate. Acute testing was performed 2 h after the first dose and chronic testing 2 h after the morning dose on Day 14. Acute testing showed an increase in exercise time from a mean (SD) of 6.7 (2.2) min to 10.1 (2.95) min (P less than 0.01) after a single dose of isosorbide-5-mononitrate 40 mg. The time to 1 mm of ST depression, and rest and peak exercise heart rates increased significantly during acute testing with isosorbide-5-mononitrate; resting Zantac Dosing Child and peak exercise systolic blood pressures fell significantly. Due to drop outs cross-over analysis was performed on 11 patients who completed both chronic phases and 13 patients were assessed for the comparison of acute isosorbide-5-mononitrate with chronic isosorbide-5-mononitrate. After 2 weeks of therapy exercise time did not show a sustained increase 8.01 (2.14) min chronic placebo to 8.58 (1.93) min chronic isosorbide-5-mononitrate.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Isosorbide-5-mononitrate is a long-acting nitrovasodilator which was introduced for the treatment of portal hypertension because of its capacity to reduce portal pressure. In contrast to vasoconstrictors, isosorbide-5-mononitrate acts primarily by decreasing portal-collateral resistance without deleterious effects on liver function, although at high doses, a reflex splanchnic vasoconstriction elicited by the fall in arterial pressure may further decrease portal pressure. However, there is no information on Diflucan 200mg Dosage the effects of isosorbide-5-mononitrate on variceal pressure, which is thought to be a major determinant of variceal haemorrhage.

The objective of the present study was to develop a novel in vitro system to simulate the process of dissolution and permeation of oral solid dosage forms in vivo, and to establish a Hytrin 5 Mg Price correlation between in vitro permeation and in vivo absorption that could predict the bioavailability (BA) and bioequivalence (BE) of congeneric products. The in vitro dissolution and absorption kinetics of four dosage forms of isosorbide mononitrate (ISMN) were evaluated by the USP basket/paddle system and drug dissolution/absorption simulating system (DDASS). The corresponding pharmacokinetic study was performed in beagle dogs. A comparative study was carried out between the classical and the novel method to estimate the effectiveness of the modified DDASS in simulating the course of dissolution and absorption in vivo. Indeed, the correlation coefficients of in vitro dissolution and in vivo absorption obtained from DDASS and dogs were higher. Moreover, a higher level A in vitro-in vivo correlation (IVIVC) between DDASS permeation and dog absorption was established, with correlation coefficients of 0.9968, 0.9872, 0.9921, and 0.9728. The DDASS method was more accurate at modeling the process of dissolution and absorption in vivo for both immediate-release (IR) and sustained-release (SR) dosage forms of ISMN.

To avoid the development of nitrate tolerance secondary to relatively constant elevated plasma nitrate concentrations, intermittent nitrate dosing has been advocated. However, a nitrate-free interval may induce a rebound increase in myocardial ischaemia, and thus increase anginal symptoms during the latter portion of the dosing interval. This was suggested by the results of recent studies in which nitroglycerin patches were administered intermittently with a 12 Zyrtec Drug Abuse h nitrate-free interval. The present investigation was carried out to determine whether a controlled-release formulation of 60 mg isosorbide-5-mononitrate (5-ISMN) would produce such a rebound phenomenon. Seventy-nine patients, who had participated in four crossover, placebo-controlled studies in which the treatment arms lasted for between 1 and 2 weeks, were reviewed. These studies had assessed the efficacy of this nitrate preparation by exercise testing and each had included exercise testing at the end of each treatment phase, 24 h after the last medication had been administered. There were no differences noted in the time to onset of angina, the time to onset of 1 mm ST segment depression or the total exercise duration between the two treatment phases, indicating an absence of rebound phenomena at the end of the dosing interval. The reason for the absence of a detectable pre-dose rebound is unclear, but the plasma concentration profile of 5-ISMN produced by the presently used preparation, resulting in a nitrate-low instead of nitrate-free interval, may have contributed.
