Mechanism of Action
Irbesartan and all ARB agents are primarily AT1-receptor antagonists—that is, the drug competes with angiotensin II for binding at the AT1-receptor subtype. Irbesartan's inhibition of angiotensin II binding to the AT1 receptor leads to several effects including vasodilation, a reduction in secretion of vasopressin (a hormone involved in water retention), and reduction in production and secretion of aldosterone (a hormone involved in hypertension regulation). The resultant effect is a net decrease in blood pressure.
AVAPRO is an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) indicated for:
- Treatment of hypertension, to lower blood pressure. Lowering blood pressure reduces the risk of fatal and nonfatal cardiovascular events, primarily strokes and myocardial infarctions.
- Treatment of diabetic nephropathy in hypertensive patients with type 2 diabetes, an elevated serum creatinine, and proteinuria
