The results show not only that this aim was achieved, but also that the reductions in central blood pressure went beyond this and met the criteria of a test for superiority defined by the European Agency for the Evaluation of Medicinal Products.
has now been used to address an important clinical question: can a dual combination of an ARB like olmesartan plus amlodipine lower central blood pressure as effectively as perindopril plus amlodipine?
They also said that measuring central blood pressure could turn out to be a better means of detecting the problem as it develops.
The study, "Racial differences in central blood pressure and vascular function in young men" appeared online in the American Journal of Physiology-Heart and Circulatory Physiology.
They are finding that new methods for estimating central blood pressure
, which is more closely related to these serious medical outcomes, promises an important new direction in clinical medicine.
Noninvasive central blood pressure
monitoring in clinical trials will help our customers demonstrate the cardiovascular benefits of new drugs.
Formerly central blood pressure
measurements were determined invasively, with a catheter inserted in the patient's aorta.
10 /PRNewswire/ -- At the annual general meeting of AtCor Medical Holdings Limited , chairman Donal O'Dwyer said that AtCor had made a great deal of progress to position itself for greater revenues from its SphygmoCor(R) system, which measures central blood pressure
Physicians often feel that [blood pressure lowering] will do more harm by reducing central blood pressure
, that this will cut oxygen supply to the brain surrounding the stroke," said Mr.
31 /PRNewswire/ -- AtCor Medical Holdings Limited , the developer and marketer of the SphygmoCor(R) system which measures central blood pressure
non-invasively, has completed an agreement with a United States-based pharmaceutical company to supply SphygmoCor systems and clinical trial support services for a US multi-centre clinical trial.
Studies have identified high central blood pressures
as an early predictor of cardiovascular problems such as heart attack and stroke.
13 /PRNewswire/ -- Two major cardiovascular outcomes studies that utilized AtCor Medical's SphygmoCor system to non-invasively measure central blood pressures
were reported upon today at the American Heart Association's annual scientific sessions.
