788 www.thelancet.com Vol 371 March 8, 2008 In today’s Lancet, Alain Tissot and colleagues report a new strategy to treat hypertension. In patients with mild-to-moderate hypertension, these investigators used active immunisation against angiotensin II with a vaccine in which the endogenous peptide is linked to a virus-like particle. This study is the fi rst to show that vaccination against a vasoactive endogenous substance can reduce blood pressure in human beings. Previous attempts have been… Expand
Vaccine for hypertension: modulating the renin-angiotensin system.
TLDR
The objective will be to focus on the importance of the renin-angiotensin system and to explore the extent of safety, efficacy and the future implications of vaccine against the RAS. Expand
Angiotensin vaccination: What is the prospect of success?
TLDR
Angiotensin vaccination is being revisited as a strategy for treating hypertension, in the hope that new conjugates of angiotens in I and angiotENSin II will produce antibodies of sufficient titer and affinity to reduce blood pressure in patients with hypertension. Expand
Vaccines in Development to Prevent and Treat Atherosclerotic Disease
TLDR
A nicotine vaccine, an antiangiotensin vaccine, and an anti-obesity vaccine may play a therapeutic role in modifying known risk factors for the development of atherosclerosis and its complications. Expand
Review: Update on Newer Antihypertensive Medicines and Interventions
TLDR
A number of new pharmacologic targets and interventions as well as a novel method of drug delivery to patients are reviewed, which will help to facilitate attainment of optimal blood pressure levels. Expand
Comparison of immunogenic efficacy of mono and polyvalent rabies vaccines in dogs
TLDR
The monovalent vaccines were found to generate higher RVNA titers than the polyvalent vaccine, and gender of dogs did not affect vaccine efficacy except that gender had some effect on RVNA Titers generated by polyvalents vaccinated dogs. Expand
Vaccines for Hypertension and Atherosclerosis
TLDR
The development of vaccines for hypertension and atherosclerosis may be an important strategy for the prevention and treatment of these diseases. Expand
[Renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) and its pharmacologic modulation].
TLDR
The renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system is a neuroendocrine complex system that regulates the modulation of salt and water homeostasis, and regulation of blood pressure and regulates the vascular response to injury and inflammation. Expand
Electrical carotid baroreceptor stimulation
TLDR
In patients with resistant hypertension, electrically activation of the baroreflex leads to an average decrease in systolic blood pressure of 38, 36, 40 and 53 mmHg at 1, 2, 3 and 4 years, respectively. Expand
Anästhesiologisches Management bei Implantation von Barorezeptorstimulatoren
TLDR
Baroreceptor stimulators are novel implantable devices that activate the carotid baroreceptor reflex that results in a decrease in activity of the sympathetic nervous system and inhibition of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system in patients with drug-resistant hypertension. Expand

Effect of immunisation against angiotensin II with CYT006-AngQb on ambulatory blood pressure: a double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled phase IIa study
TLDR
Immunisation with CYT006-AngQb-a vaccine based on a virus-like particle-that targets angiotensin II to reduce ambulatory blood pressure was associated with no serious adverse events; most observed adverse events were consistent with local or systemic responses similar to those seen with other vaccines. Expand
A vaccine for hypertension
TLDR
The successful production of angiotensin II antibodies in rats and humans, using a protein in which the N-terminus of the peptide is fused to a spacer sequence containing a cysteine, leading to conjugation with the surface of the highly repetitive structure of virus-like particles. Expand
Randomized double-blind placebo-controlled study of an angiotensin immunotherapeutic vaccine (PMD3117) in hypertensive subjects.
TLDR
Biochemical measurements show evidence of blockade of the renin system, but higher titres will be required to achieve a decrease in blood pressure, as shown in patients with essential hypertension. Expand
Randomized double-blind placebo-controlled study of an angiotensin immunotherapeutic vaccine ( PMD 3117 ) in hypertensive subjects
Immunization against components of the renin–angiotensin system offers a potential alternative to daily medication in some patients with hypertension or heart failure. Our primary objective was toExpand
Update on Elan vaccine for Alzheimer's disease
TLDR
Hideo Hara is leading a team working on an oral vaccine that he believes will bypass the Th1 T cell-mediated response entirely and work without the side-effects of meningoencephalitis, and has shown that their approach, which uses an adenoassociated virus as a vector, is effective in mice, and is now testing it in ageing monkeys. Expand
Barriers to hypertension control.
TLDR
Barriers associated with inadequate blood pressure control are reviewed, and a barrier is defined as any factor associated with impaired control that can lead to poor control. Expand
Hyperkalemia with concomitant watery diarrhea: an unusual association.
TLDR
It is suggested that hyperkalemia, most likely by stimulating intestinal motility, induced the watery diarrhea in all 4 patients, and theWatery diarrhea failed to compensate for the renal tubular failure to secrete K+. Expand

TLDR
Immunotherapy represents one of the first tests of the amyloid hypothesis in the clinic, and is an evolving approach to the treatment of Alzheimer's disease that offers a genuine opportunity to modify disease progression. Expand

TLDR
There is increasing evidence that the local renin-angiotensin system may be involved in the maintenance of cardiovascular structure and repair, and this provides a possible mechanism for the beneficial effect of ACE inhibitors in postmyocardial infarction trials. Expand
Growth impairment in the very preterm and cognitive and motor performance at 7 years
TLDR
Poor postnatal growth in preterm infants, especially of the head, is associated with increased levels of motor and cognitive impairment at 7 years of age, which appears to occur largely in the postnatal rather than antenatal period and may be amenable to intervention and subsequent improvement in outcome.
