Intracellular calcium in hypertension: effect of treatment with beta-adrenoreceptor blockers.


In 41 essential hypertensive patients, the intraerythrocytic free calcium (aiCa2+) was determined before and after oral treatment with beta-adrenoreceptor blockers (atenolol, metipranolol, and pindolol). The measurements were performed by means of an ion-selective electrode. During the 4 weeks of treatment, the aiCa2+ decreased from 7.4 +/- 2.3 (mean +/- SD… (More)
