Angiotensin receptor blockers for the treatment of high blood pressure

A class of drugs called angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) is commonly used to lower high blood pressure. This class includes drugs such as losartan (brand name: Cozaar), candesartan (Atacand), eprosartan (Teveten), irbesartan (Avapro), telmisartan (Micardis) and valsartan (Diovan). We asked how much this class of drugs lowers blood pressure and whether there is a difference between individual drugs within the class. The available scientific literature was searched to find all trials that had assessed these questions.

Are angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) an effective treatment for heart failure?

Drugs called angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs), such as losartan (brand name: Cozaar), candesartan (Atacand), eprosartan (Teveten), irbesartan (Avapro), telmisartan (Micardis) and valsartan (Diovan) are commonly used to treat heart failure. We asked whether ARBs reduced death, or severe disability as assessed by hospital admission for any reason versus an inert substance (placebo) or another class of drugs called ACE inhibitors, such as ramipril (Altace), captopril (Capoten), enalapril (Vasotec), fosinopril (Monopril), lisinopril (Prinivil, Zestril), and quinapril (Accupril). We also asked whether combining an ARB with an ACE inhibitor is more effective than an ACE inhibitor alone in reducing death, disability, or hospital admission for any reason. The scientific literature was searched to find all trials that had assessed these questions.
