The effect of losartan versus atenolol on cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in patients with hypertension taking aspirin: The Losartan Intervention for Endpoint Reduction in Hypertension (LIFE) study
Angiotensin II Type 1 Receptor Blockers
Hypertrophy, Left Ventricular
There was a statistical interaction between treatment and aspirin in the LIFE study, with significantly greater reductions for the CEP and MI with losartan in patients using aspirin than in patients not using aspirin at baseline. Further studies are needed to clarify whether this represents a pharmacologic interaction or a selection by aspirin use of patients more likely to respond to losartan treatment.
