Cardiovascular Drug Therapy: Nitrate Therapy by Adam Schneeweiss

By Adam Schneeweiss

The· first assembly of the cardiovascular drug treatment discussion board happened on April 13-15, 1988 in Montreux, Switzerland. during this assembly, which used to be closed to the general public, nearly a hundred and fifty major investigators within the box of cardiovascular drug treatment, either teachers and from the pharmaceutical undefined, mentioned the cutting-edge and destiny traits of this swiftly increasing box. The discussions targeting 4 significant subject matters: (1) ischemic center affliction; (2) middle failure; (3) hyper­ pressure; (4) arrhythmias. those issues have been mentioned through 4 committees in parallel, and thereafter the details have been reviewed by means of the entire discussion board. This framework allowed either extensive and interdisciplinary discussions. This publication, the 1st ebook of chosen issues from the assembly, focuses regularly on nitrate remedy in ischemic middle affliction and middle failure.

Dalal et al. [16] reported only partial hemodynamic tolerance. In ten patients with stable exercise-induced angina pectoris systolic blood pressure at rest decreased by 25 % 2 h after acute administration of ISDN but by only 11 % 2 h after administration ofthe drug during chronic therapy. Systolic blood pressure was not further decreased by sublingual nitroglycerin during the acute phase, but was decreased further during prolonged therapy. Various therapeutic regimens have been reported to be associated with tolerance.

Muller et al. d. The response of heart rate to IS-5-MN is variable. In most studies heart rate was not altered or was slightly increased. However, in some cases (mainly those with congestive heart failure), decreases in heart rate have been observed. Comparative Studies of Mononitrates and Other Drugs in Angina Pectoris Calcium Antagonists Both calcium antagonists and nitrates reduce preload and afterload, thereby reducing myocardial oxygen consumption. However, calcium antagonists have a more pronounced effect on afterload and nitrates on preload.

It is known that the effect of nitrates can be augmented in the nontolerant state by Nacetylcysteine. An interesting question is why does N-acetylcysteine appear more likely to reverse tolerance to nitroglycerin than to ISDN. Cross-Tolerance to the Antianginal Effect of Sublingual Nitroglycerin iu Patients Treated with Long-Actiug Nitrates The question of cross-tolerance to nitroglycerin is of special significance when long-term nitrate therapy is considered. If long-term treatment with organic nitrates or transdermal nitroglycerin is associated with tolerance only to these agents, then the preventive effect is lost, but sublingual nitroglycerin is still effective for relief of pain in acute anginal episodes.
