Alcohol-induced endothelial changes might contribute to an increase in blood pressure in regular alcohol consumers. Some antihypertensive drugs affect oxidative stress and endothelial function and might counteract the effects of alcohol at the cellular level. The aim of this study was to investigate in vitro the effects of three different types of antihypertensive agents on alcohol-induced endothelial responses and oxidative stress. Cultured human endothelial cells were exposed to increasing… Expand
Alcohol-induced hypertension: Mechanism and prevention.
TLDR
The most effective prevention and treatment of alcohol-induced hypertension is physical exercise and the use of ACE inhibitors or ARBs in the clinic. Expand
Cardiovascular responses and differential changes in mitogen-activated protein kinases following repeated episodes of binge drinking.
TLDR
Repeated episodes of binge drinking result in progressive and transient increases in BP, no change in myocardial structure and differential regulation of MAPK activation. Expand
Different Effects of Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Inhibitors on Endothelin-1 and Nitric Oxide Balance in Human Vascular Endothelial Cells: Evidence of an Oxidant-Sensitive Pathway
TLDR
Among the four tested ACE-I, zofenoprilat was more effective in improving endothelin-1/nitric oxide balance in HUVECs likely because of its greater antioxidant properties. Expand
Carvedilol Protects against Iron-Induced Microparticle Generation and Apoptosis of Endothelial Cells
TLDR
The result indicates that iron induces EMP generation and apoptosis of endothelial cells in association with increased oxidative stress, and the protective effects of carvedilol, via its antioxidant effect, may have therapeutic potential in patients with iron overload. Expand
Role of Transcription Factors in Steatohepatitis and Hypertension after Ethanol: The Epicenter of Metabolism
TLDR
Recording of increased reactive oxygen species requires increased expression of genes responsible for dismutation of increased ROS which is partially achieved by IL-6 mediated activation of signal transducers and activators of transcription 3 (STAT3). Expand
Endothelial function is impaired in relation to alcohol intake even in the case of light alcohol consumption in Asian men; Flow-mediated Dilation Japan (FMD-J) Study.
TLDR
The findings suggest that F MD is impaired in relation to alcohol consumption and that FMD is significantly smaller even in light alcohol drinkers than in non-drinkers, and that alcohol intake per se may be harmful for vascular function. Expand
Frequent-Episodic Alcohol Consumption Impairs Macro-and Microvascular Function in Young Adults
TLDR
It is suggested that binge drinking leads to impaired ED and EI dilation in the brachial artery and nitric oxide-mediated vasodilation in resistance arterioles of abstainers but not binge drinkers and enhanced constriction in resistance arteries of binge drinkers. Expand
The role of dietary salt and alcohol use reduction in the management of hypertension
TLDR
This review provides the overview of the role of dietary salt and alcohol use reduction in the management of hypertension, a brief history of alcohol, the vascular endothelium functions, the effects of alcohol use on blood pressure (BP), the mechanisms of alcohol. Expand
Potential Protective Role of Blood Pressure-Lowering Drugs on the Balance between Hemostasis and Fibrinolysis in Hypertensive Patients at Rest and During Exercise
  • A. Braschi
  • Medicine
  • American Journal of Cardiovascular Drugs
  • 2019
TLDR
The scientific evidence regarding some biological effects of antihypertensive drugs, which can protect patients from the adverse consequences of hypertensive disease, improving endothelial function, enhancing antioxidant activity, and restoring equilibrium between hemostatic and fibrinolytic factors are reviewed. Expand
Role of rostral ventrolateral medullary ERK/JNK/p38 MAPK signaling in the pressor effects of ethanol and its oxidative product acetaldehyde.
TLDR
Enhancement of RVLM ERK2 phosphorylation constitutes a major molecular mechanism for the pressor response elicited by intra-RVLM EtOH or its metabolite, ACA, in conscious SHRs, and RVLM kinases dephosphorylation does not contribute to intra-EtOH- or ACA-evokedPressor response. Expand

Alcohol-induced endothelial changes are associated with oxidative stress and are rapidly reversed after withdrawal.
TLDR
Alcohol affects endothelial function with an effect that is mediated by an activated oxidative stress and is rapidly reversed after withdrawal, and dose-related endothelial responses to different alcohol intakes might translate in either vascular protection or vascular damage. Expand
Effects of carvedilol on oxidative stress in human endothelial cells and healthy volunteers
TLDR
In healthy men, antihypertensive doses of carvedilol exert no specific inhibition of oxidative stress, and a trend toward reduction of urinary isoprostanes and 3-nitrotyrosine in plasma by both active treatments was observed, suggesting a non-specific antioxidative effect by β blockade. Expand
Carvedilol, a new antihypertensive agent, prevents lipid peroxidation and oxidative injury to endothelial cells.
TLDR
Carvedilol dose-dependently decreased the intensity of the free radical signals, indicating its free radical-scavenging ability and might potentially contribute to the clinical beneficial effects of carvedilol as an antihypertensive agent. Expand
Effects of antihypertensive drugs on endothelial dysfunction: clinical implications.
TLDR
Despite the considerable evidence that impaired endothelium-dependent vasodilation can be improved by appropriate antihypertensive treatment, no clinical data exist demonstrating that the reversal of endothelial dysfunction is associated with a reduction in cardiovascular events. Expand
The effect of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibition on endothelial function and oxidant stress.
TLDR
Results showed that the sulfhydryl angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor zofenopril has unique properties compared with captopril and enalapril, and this compound improves nitric oxide production and bioactivity, and does so in conjunction with decreased endothelial cell oxidant stress. Expand
Ethanol enhances the endothelial nitric oxide synthase response to agonists.
TLDR
The hypothesis that ethanol enhances nitric oxide synthase response to agonists during early ethanol exposure and may serve in a protective role against its hypertensive effect is supported. Expand
Zofenopril inhibits the expression of adhesion molecules on endothelial cells by reducing reactive oxygen species.
TLDR
The conclusion is that the sulfhydryl (SH)-containing ACE inhibitors may be useful in inhibiting foam cell formation and thus slow the development of atherosclerosis. Expand
Effects of alcohol withdrawal on blood pressure in hypertensive heavy drinkers
TLDR
Hypertension is rapidly reversible in the majority of heavy drinkers after the withdrawal of alcohol consumption, and in these patients, hypertension is associated with an increased release of endothelial factors that might contribute to the increase in blood pressure. Expand
Sulfhydryl angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibition induces sustained reduction of systemic oxidative stress and improves the nitric oxide pathway in patients with essential hypertension.
TLDR
The data suggest a possible vasculoprotective effect of the sulfhydryl ACE inhibitor zofenopril in retarding vascular dysfunction and atherogenesis that often develops rapidly in hypertensive patients. Expand
Ethanol enhances basal and flow-stimulated nitric oxide synthase activity in vitro by activating an inhibitory guanine nucleotide binding protein.
TLDR
A stimulatory effect of ethanol on basal and flow-stimulated eNOS activity is demonstrated, mediated in part by a mechanism involving a PTX-sensitive G protein. Expand
