Combined blockade of angiotensin II type 1 receptor and activation of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ by telmisartan effectively inhibits vascularization and growth of murine endometriosis-like lesions
Is telmisartan effective in the treatment of endometriosis? Combined blockade of angiotensin II type 1 receptor (AT1R) and activation of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)-γ by telmisartan inhibits vascularization and growth of murine endometriosis-like lesions. AT1R and PPAR-γ are involved in the regulation of inflammation, proliferation and angiogenesis. These processes are also crucial for the pathogenesis of endometriosis and both receptors are expressed in endometrial tissue. Telmisartan is a partial agonist of PPAR-γ, which additionally blocks AT1R. This was a randomized study in the mouse dorsal skinfold chamber and peritoneal model of endometriosis. Endometriosis-like lesions were induced in dorsal skinfold chambers of 21 female C57BL/6 mice, and in the peritoneal cavity of 15 additional animals, which were daily treated with an i.p. injection of pioglitazone (10 mg/kg, n = 12), telmisartan (10 mg/kg, n = 12) or vehicle (5% dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), n = 12) throughout an observation period of 14 and 28 days, respectively. The anti-angiogenic actions of pioglitazone, a full PPAR-γ agonist, and telmisartan were firstly assessed in vitro by an aortic ring assay. Endometriosis-like lesions were induced in th...Continue Reading

Anthelmintics or antihelminthics are a group of antiparasitic drugs that expel parasitic worms (helminths) and other internal parasites from the body by either stunning or killing them and without causing significant damage to the host. Discover the latest research on anthelmintics here.
