Description

Lorista Pharmacodynamics
Antihypertensive agent. It is a non-peptide blocker of angiotensin II receptors. It has high selectivity and affinity to AT1 receptors (with the participation of which the main effects of angiotensin II are realized). By blocking these receptors, losartan prevents and eliminates vasoconstrictor effect of angiotensin II, its stimulating effect on adrenal aldosterone secretion and some other effects of angiotensin II. It is characterized by prolonged action (24 h and more) due to the formation of its active metabolite.
