41. Anti-platelet activity of beta-adrenergic antagonists: inhibition of thromboxane synthesis and platelet aggregation in patients receiving long-term propranolol treatment. (PubMed)

Anti-platelet activity of beta-adrenergic antagonists: inhibition of thromboxane synthesis and platelet aggregation in patients receiving long-term propranolol treatment. Treatment of hypertensive patients with dl-propranolol (640 mg/day) significantly inhibited thromboxane synthesis by their platelets and platelet aggregation induced by thrombin or arachidonic acid. The effects were dose-related and were also caused by the stereoisomer, d-propranolol (640 mg/day), which has very little beta (...) -blocking activity. These findings suggest that the cardioprotective effects of propranolol may be due partly to this anti-platelet activity, to a reduction in thromboxane-induced coronary-artery vasoconstriction, or to both. d-Propranolol treatment may be particularly useful, since this isomer provides similar benefits without causing pronounced beta-adrenergic blockade.

42. A randomized trial of propranolol in patients with acute myocardial infarction. I. Mortality results. (PubMed)

A randomized trial of propranolol in patients with acute myocardial infarction. I. Mortality results. The beta-Blocker Heart Attack Trial (BHAT) was a National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute-sponsored, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, and placebo-controlled trial designed to test whether the regular administration of propranolol hydrochloride to men and women who had experienced at least one myocardial infarction would result in a significant reduction in total mortality during a two (...) - to four-year period. During a 27-month interval, 3,837 persons between the ages of 30 and 69 years were randomized to either propranolol (1,916 persons) or placebo (1,912 persons), five to 21 days after the infarction. Depending on serum drug levels, the prescribed maintenance dose of propranolol hydrochloride was either 180 or 240 mg/day. The trial was stopped nine months ahead of schedule. Total mortality during the average 24-month follow-up period was 7.2% in the propranolol group and 9.8

43. Comparison of propranolol and hydrochlorothiazide for thr initial treatment of hypertension. I. Results of short-term titration with emphasis on racial differences in response. Veterans Administration Cooperative Study Group on Antihypertensive agents. (PubMed)

Comparison of propranolol and hydrochlorothiazide for thr initial treatment of hypertension. I. Results of short-term titration with emphasis on racial differences in response. Veterans Administration Cooperative Study Group on Antihypertensive agents. We compared hydrochlorothiazide and propranolol hydrochloride for monotherapy of hypertension by a double-blind study of 683 men who were titrated to less than 90 mm Hg diastolic BP or to 640 mg of propranolol or 200 mg of hydrochlorothiazide (...) . Propranolol reduced systolic BP from 146.0 +/- 14.4 (SD) to 134.8 +/- 16.3 mm Hg and diastolic BP from 101.6 +/- 4.6 to 90.5 +/- 7.5 mm Hg. Hydrochlorothiazide lowered both systolic BP more effectively from 146.5 +/- 15.8 to 128.8 +/- 12.2 mm Hg and diastolic BP from 101.3 +/- 4.5 to 89.4 +/- 6.5 mm Hg. In blacks, hydrochlorothiazide lowered systolic BP 20.3 +/- 14.3 mm Hg v 8.2 +/- 12.2 mm Hg for propranolol; hydrochlorothiazide reduced diastolic BP 13.0 +/- 7.0 mm Hg v 9.5 +/- 7.0 for propranolol

Comparison of propranolol and hydrochlorothiazide for the initial treatment of hypertension. II. Results of long-term therapy. Veterans Administration Cooperative Study Group on Antihypertensive Agents. As described in the preceding communication, either propranolol hydrochloride or hydrochlorothiazide were randomly allocated in a double-blind manner to 683 patients with initial diastolic BP in the range of 95 to 114 mm Hg. Of this number, 394 entered the long-term treatment phase. During (...) the subsequent 12 months of long-term treatment, hydrochlorothiazide was more effective than propranolol in controlling BP (mean reductions, -17.5/-13.1 mm Hg with hydrochlorothiazide compared with -8.3/-11.3 with propranolol. After treatment with hydrochlorothiazide, a greater percentage of patients achieved the goal diastolic BP of less than 90 mm Hg (65.5% compared with 52.8% taking propranolol). Also during treatment, fewer patients receiving hydrochlorothiazide required termination as compared

46. Adverse reactions to bendrofluazide and propranolol for the treatment of mild hypertension. Report of Medical Research Council Working Party on Mild to Moderate Hypertension. (PubMed)

Adverse reactions to bendrofluazide and propranolol for the treatment of mild hypertension. Report of Medical Research Council Working Party on Mild to Moderate Hypertension. Participants in the Medical Research Council treatment trial for mild hypertension are randomly allocated to one of four treatment groups: bendrofluazide, propranolol, or a placebo for either of these drugs. The trial is single-blind. 23 582 patient-years of observation have been completed so far, 10 684 on active drugs (...) and 12 898 on placebos. The results show an association between bendrofluazide treatment and impotence, and impotence also occurred more frequently in patients taking propranolol than in those taking placebos. Other adverse reactions significantly linked with active drugs include impaired glucose tolerance in men and women and gout in men, associated with bendrofluazide treatment, and Raynaud's phenomenon and dyspnoea in men and women taking propranolol. No corneal disease is known to have occurred

47. Propranolol in prevention of recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding in cirrhotic patients. (PubMed)

Propranolol in prevention of recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding in cirrhotic patients. Placebo or propranolol was given randomly of two groups of 12 adults with cirrhosis who had recently held from oesophageal or gastric varices or from acute gastric erosions. During three months' follow-up 5 patients in the placebo and none in the propranolol group had recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding.

48. Comparison of antihypertensive effects of captopril and propranolol in essential hypertension. (PubMed)

Comparison of antihypertensive effects of captopril and propranolol in essential hypertension. The antihypertensive effects of the oral converting enzyme inhibitor captopril and of propranolol were evaluated in a single-blind trial of 12 weeks in 19 ambulatory men with moderated essential hypertension (supine diastolic blood pressure [DPB], 100 to 120 mm Hg after receiving placebo for two weeks) whose sodium intake was unrestricted. The captopril group included 12 patients and the propranolol (...) group seven. After the initial dose-finding period of four weeks, supine DBP was significantly reduced in eight patients receiving captopril and in four of the patients receiving propranolol. In these patients DBP decreased throughout the following eight weeks. In the remaining patients from each group, DBP was not reduced by either drug given alone at maximum allowable dosages during dose-finding periods, nor by combined administration in following weeks. No adverse side effects attributable

49. Propranolol for prevention of recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding in patients with cirrhosis: a controlled study. (PubMed)

Propranolol for prevention of recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding in patients with cirrhosis: a controlled study. It has been suggested that because propranolol decreases portal venous pressure, it may prevent gastrointestinal bleeding associated with portal hypertension. We randomly assigned 74 patients with cirrhosis, who were admitted because of gastrointestinal bleeding, to either oral propranolol given in doses that reduced the heart rate by 25 per cent (38 patients) or to a placebo (36 (...) patients). The proportion of patients free of recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding one year after inclusion in this study was 96 per cent in the propranolol group and 50 per cent in the placebo group (P less than 0.0001). We conclude that continuous administration of propranolol by mouth is effective in preventing recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding in patients with cirrhosis.

50. Effect of propranolol and prazosin on blood lipids. The Oslo Study. (PubMed)

Effect of propranolol and prazosin on blood lipids. The Oslo Study. In 23 hypertensive men, aged 47-55, propranolol reduced serum high-density-lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol by 13% reduced the ratio of HDL to low-density-lipoprotein (LDL)+very-low-density-lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol by 15%, increased total triglycerides by 24%, and increased serum uric acid by 10%. Prazosin reduced total serum cholesterol by 9%, LDL+VLDL cholesterol by 10%, and total triglycerides by 16%. These changes (...) are statistically highly significant. On combined treatment with propranolol and prazosin HDL cholesterol was still significantly reduced but changes in other blood lipids were small and insignificant. Uric acid remained elevated. When decisions about long-term therapy are made, such metabolic effects might be of special importance.

51. Propranolol--a medical treatment for portal hypertension? (PubMed)

Propranolol--a medical treatment for portal hypertension? Continuous, oral administration of propranolol at doses which reduced the heart-rate by 25% produced a sustained decrease in portal venous pressure in cirrhotic patients with portal hypertension. This effect of propranolol might be useful in preventing recurrent bleeding due to ruptured oesophageal varices in patients with portal hypertension.

52. Biochemical and haematological changes induced by tienilic acid combined with propranolol in essential hypertension. (PubMed)

Biochemical and haematological changes induced by tienilic acid combined with propranolol in essential hypertension. Sixteen patients with moderate essential hypertension completed a double-blind crossover trial with four treatment periods each of 6 weeks. They received in random order: placebo; tienilic acid 250 mg/day; propranolol 80 mg twice daily; and tienilic acid 250 mg/day combined with propranolol 80 mg twice daily. Average blood-pressure in the lying position was 22.6/13.1 kPa (169/98 (...) mm Hg) on placebo; 21.0/12.5 (157/94) on tienilic aicd; 21.2/12.0 (159/90) on propranolol, and 18.9/11.5 (142/86) on tienilic acid combined with propranolol. The effects of tienilic acid and propranolol on blood-pressure were additive and there were no statistically significant interactions. Tienilic acid significantly reduced serum-urate from 0.33 to 0.18 mmol/l and induced hypokalaemia which was corrected by propranolol. Basophil count and haemoglobin were lower after tienilic acid treatment
