Estazolam, a triazolobenzodiazepine with an intermediate elimination half-life, has been shown previously to be an effective and safe hypnotic in insomniacs without concomitant psychiatric illness. Our study of the efficacy of estazolam in patients with insomnia associated with generalized anxiety disorder began when 108 patients meeting criteria for generalized anxiety disorder (mean total score of Hamilton Rating Scale for Anxiety [HAM-A] = 22.0 ± 3.1 [SD]) and insomnia were given single… 
The impact of the improvement of insomnia on blood pressure in hypertensive patients
The current findings indicated that the improvement of insomnia can significantly help lower blood pressure in hypertensive patients.
Efficacy of Acupuncture for Primary Insomnia: A Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial
Verum acupuncture appeared to be more effective in increasing sleep quality and daytime functioning than sham acupuncture and estazolam.
Meta-analysis of benzodiazepine use in the treatment of insomnia.
The use of benzodiazepines in the treatment of insomnia is associated with an increase in sleep duration, but this is countered by a number of adverse effects and additional studies evaluating the efficacy of nonpharmacological interventions would be valuable.
Sleep modulating agents.
An expedient route to highly diversified [1,2,3]triazolo[1,5-a][1,4]benzodiazepines and their evaluation for antimicrobial, antiproliferative and in silico studies
An efficient diversity oriented synthesis of [1,2,3]triazolo[1,5-a][1,4]benzodiazepines has been developed by sequential diazotization, azidation and cycloaddition reactions in a one-pot fashion to introduce various substituents at all possible positions under mild reaction conditions.
Catalyst-Controlled Regioselective Synthesis of Benzotriazlolodiazepin-7-ones and Benzotriazolodiazocin-8-ones.
A catalyst-controlled highly chemoselective and regioselective intramolecular cycloamidation of triazol-1-ylbenzamides toward the synthesis of scarcely known heterocycles is reported. In the presence
Synthesis of new triazolo[1,5-b][2,4]benzodiazepines via tandem cyclization of o-(azidomethyl)benzoates with cyanoacetamides
Based on the tandem anionic cyclization of o-(azidomethyl)benzoates with 2-cyanoacetamides, an efficient synthetic route to the hitherto unknown heterocyclic system,
An expedient and facile route for the general synthesis of 3-aryl substituted 1,2,3-triazolo[1,5-a][1,4]benzodiazepin-6-ones and 1,2,3-triazolo[1,5-a][1,5]benzodiazocin-7-ones.
A convenient approach for the general synthesis of novel tricyclic scaffolds incorporating a fusion of the 1,2,3-triazole ring with difficultly obtainable medium sized rings through Sonogashira coupling of an aryl iodide with 2-amino-N-methyl-N-(prop-2-ynyl)benzamide or homologue is described.
A facile and highly chemoselective synthesis of 1-thia-3a,6-diaza-benzo[e]azulen-3-ones by 7-exo-dig/trig halocyclizations
This manuscript describes a study on relatively unexplored halogen mediated 7-exo-dig/trig cyclization reactions of 2-(2-amino-aryl)-3-prop-2-ynyl/allyl-thiazolidin-4-ones for the formation of
