Mechanism of action
Aprovel is an antihypertensive drug, a specific angiotensin II receptor antagonist (type AT1). Eliminates the vasoconstrictor effect of angiotensin II and reduces the concentration of aldosterone in the blood plasma. Aprovel blocks all physiologically significant effects of angiotensin II, realized through the AT1 receptor, regardless of the source or route of synthesis of angiotensin II. The specific antagonistic effect on angiotensin II receptors (AT1) leads to an increase in plasma renin and angiotensin II concentrations and to a decrease in plasma aldosterone concentrations.
When applying the recommended doses of Aprovel, the concentration of potassium ion in the serum does not change significantly. Irbesartan does not inhibit kininase II, through which the formation of angiotensin II and the destruction of bradykinin to inactive metabolites. To show its effect, irbesartan does not require metabolic activation.
