Item description for Antihypertensive Drugs by Zweten...
Drug treatment of essential hypertension has a short but impressive history, with development especially taking place with respect to the efficacy of the antihypertensive effect, as well as the profile of adverse reactions. Divided into three sections, an up-to-date and detailed review of current antihypertensive drug development is provided. The first part, medicinal chemistry, covers current research on areas including the angiotensin II-receptor antagonists and renin inhibitors. Pharmacology, section two, offers discussions on the major groups of drugs currently in use and their mechanisms, with a separate chapter devoted to new and experimental antihypertensive drugs. The final section deals with clinical pharmacology, the haemodynamic profile of current hypertensive drugs, and state-of-the-art hypertensive treatment. A discussion of drug treatment of hypertension in the elderly and in diabetics concludes the book.
