Summary Angiotensin-II (...) receptor antagonists (azilsartan, candesartan, eprosartan, irbesartan, losartan, olmesartan, telmisartan, and valsartan) are typically used in the treatment of hypertension where angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors have not been tolerated, but may also be used in the management of heart failure and diabetic nephropathy. There are limited data on the use of angiotensin-II receptor antagonists (A2RAs) in human pregnancy, however effects are expected to be similar to those of the ACE inhibitors

45. Efficacy and safety of nebivolol and valsartan as fixed-dose combination in hypertension: a randomised, multicentre study. (PubMed)

Efficacy and safety of nebivolol and valsartan as fixed-dose combination in hypertension: a randomised, multicentre study. The fixed-dose combination of any two antihypertensive drugs from different drug classes is typically more effective in reducing blood pressure than a dose increase of component monotherapy. We assessed the efficacy and safety of a fixed-dose combination of a vasodilating β blocker (nebivolol) and an angiotensin II receptor blocker (valsartan) in adults with hypertension.We (...) did an 8-week, phase 3, multicentre, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group trial at 401 US sites. Participants (age ≥18 years) with hypertension but with blood pressure less than 180/110 mm Hg were randomly assigned (2:2:2:2:2:2:2:1) by a 24-h interactive web response system in blocks of 15 to 4 weeks of double-blind treatment with nebivolol and valsartan fixed-dose combination (5 and 80 mg/day, 5 and 160 mg/day, or 10 and 160 mg/day), nebivolol (5 mg/day or 20 mg/day

Comparison of continuous positive airway pressure and valsartan in hypertensive patients with sleep apnea Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have shown that continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) reduces blood pressure (BP). CPAP treatment has never been compared with antihypertensive medications in an RCT.To assess the respective efficacy of CPAP and valsartan in reducing BP in hypertensive patients with OSA never treated for either condition.In (...) this 8-week randomized controlled crossover trial, 23 hypertensive patients (office systolic BP/diastolic BP: 155 ± 14/102 ± 11 mm Hg) with OSA (age, 57 ± 8 yr; body mass index, 28 ± 5 kg/m(2); apnea-hypopnea index, 29 ± 18/h) were randomized first to either CPAP or valsartan (160 mg). The second 8-week period consisted of the alternative treatment (crossover) after a 4-week washout period.Office BP and 24-hour BP were measured before and at the end of the two active treatment periods.

Effect of valsartan on the incidence of diabetes and cardiovascular events. It is not known whether drugs that block the renin-angiotensin system reduce the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular events in patients with impaired glucose tolerance.In this double-blind, randomized clinical trial with a 2-by-2 factorial design, we assigned 9306 patients with impaired glucose tolerance and established cardiovascular disease or cardiovascular risk factors to receive valsartan (up to 160 mg daily (...) ) or placebo (and nateglinide or placebo) in addition to lifestyle modification. We then followed the patients for a median of 5.0 years for the development of diabetes (6.5 years for vital status). We studied the effects of valsartan on the occurrence of three coprimary outcomes: the development of diabetes; an extended composite outcome of death from cardiovascular causes, nonfatal myocardial infarction, nonfatal stroke, hospitalization for heart failure, arterial revascularization, or hospitalization

54. Valsartan for prevention of recurrent atrial fibrillation. (PubMed)

Valsartan for prevention of recurrent atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation is the most common cardiac arrhythmia, and no current therapy is ideal for control of this condition. Experimental studies suggest that angiotensin II-receptor blockers (ARBs) can influence atrial remodeling, and some clinical studies suggest that they may prevent atrial fibrillation.We conducted a large, randomized, prospective, placebo-controlled, multicenter trial to test whether the ARB valsartan could reduce (...) the recurrence of atrial fibrillation. We enrolled patients who were in sinus rhythm but had had either two or more documented episodes of atrial fibrillation in the previous 6 months or successful cardioversion for atrial fibrillation in the previous 2 weeks. To be eligible, patients also had to have underlying cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or left atrial enlargement. Patients were randomly assigned to receive valsartan or placebo. The two primary end points were the time to a first recurrence of atrial

Valsartan in a Japanese population with hypertension and other cardiovascular disease (Jikei Heart Study): a randomised, open-label, blinded endpoint morbidity-mortality study. Drugs that inhibit the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system benefit patients at risk for or with existing cardiovascular disease. However, evidence for this effect in Asian populations is scarce. We aimed to investigate whether addition of an angiotensin receptor blocker, valsartan, to conventional cardiovascular (...) treatment was effective in Japanese patients with cardiovascular disease.We initiated a multicentre, prospective, randomised controlled trial of 3081 Japanese patients, aged 20-79 years, (mean 65 [SD 10] years) who were undergoing conventional treatment for hypertension, coronary heart disease, heart failure, or a combination of these disorders.
