ABSTRACT
The article reports on a study that revealed DARA molecule, a dual-acting receptor antagonist compound PS433540, can effectively lower systolic and diastolic blood pressure in stage I and II patients with hypertension. Reported at the American Society of Hypertension 23rd Annual Scientific Meeting in May 2008, this compound targets specific angiotensin-1 and endothelin receptors. Associate professor of medicine Joel M. Neutel at the University of California-Irvine said that the new drug therapy was also safe and well tolerated.
