Nimodipine is a 1,4-dihydropyridine derivative that shows a preferential cerebrovascular activity in experimental animals. Clinical data suggest that nimodipine has a beneficial effect on the neurologic outcome of patients suffering an acute ischemic stroke. Our double-blind placebo-controlled multicenter trial was designed to assess the effects of oral(More)
To evaluate the renal effects of nisoldipine (N), a dihydropyridine derivative, we have evaluated the variations of blood pressure (BP), heart rate, glomerular filtration rate (GFR), renal plasma flow (RPF), 24-h natriuresis, and renal capacity to excrete an i.v. sodium load (2,000 ml isotonic saline in 4-h) in response to a 4-day course of therapy with(More)
In order to elucidate whether or not the natriuretic properties of calcium entry blockers persist during the long-term administration of the drug, we have investigated the renal capacity to excrete an intravenous sodium load (2,000 ml of isotonic saline in 4 h) in a group of eight mild to moderate essential hypertensive patients, before and after 1, 8, and(More)
PURPOSE Periodic cancer incidence estimates of Spain from all existing population-based cancer registries at any given time are required. The objective of this study was to present the current situation of cancer incidence in Spain. METHODS The Spanish Network of Cancer Registries (REDECAN) estimated the numbers of new cancer cases occurred in Spain in(More)
The implementation of health outcomes research as a healthcare decision-making tool has expanded rapidly in the last decade. Drugs and medical devices are increasingly being required to demonstrate not only their efficacy and safety characteristics, but also their performance in at least three core dimensions of health outcomes research: clinical(More)
