Captopril and hypertension by David B Case( Book )

6 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph was developed from a collection of papers that were origi­ nally presented at a symposium entitled "Pathogenesis of Hypertension" held at the Henry Chauncy Conference Center, Princeton. New Jersey. These manuscripts were subsequently revised, updated, and reorganized in a manner suitable for this publication. The symposium was planned to stimu­ late interest among investigators and clinicians alike in the potential for a new class of drugs called converting enzyme inhibitors in clinical medicine. The meeting was sponsored by the Squibb Institute for Medical Research, whose pioneering biochemical and pharmaceutical research had led to the development of the first orally active converting enzyme inhibitor. It is hoped that this monograph will cohesively pull together the thesis that the identification, quantification, and containment of the renin factor in hypertension can be a powerful diagnostic and therapeutic strategy in clinical medicine. In addition, the sequence of studies presented in this manuscript will serve to demonstrate how basic biochemical and physio­ logical research produces fundamental and critical information on which subsequent major advances in clinical pharmacology and medicine can be based
From hypertension to heart failure( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book "From Hypertension to Heart Failure" will cover new aspects of the treatment of hypertension, arrhythmias, heart failure and coronary artery diseases. The topics will include new pathophysiological findings, the theoretical background of pharmacological treatment, results of the latest studies, and practical guidelines for treatment. Case reports will make the book applicable for a broad readership of general internists. The therapy of heart failure with betablockers is one of the most controversially discussed topics in cardiovascular medicine. Therefore, the book will critically deal with this new form of therapy for this disabling condition
