Description : The angiotensin-II–receptor blocker irbesartan is effective in protecting against the progression of nephropathy due to type 2 diabetes. This protection is independent of the reduction in blood pressure it causes- New England J Med 2001; 345:851-860. There is some evidence that irbesartan provides protective cardiovascular effects beyond its antihypertensive action. This is particularly true for its beneficial effects on slowing the progression of early-stage and late-stage renal disease in hypertensive patients with type 2 diabetes and on promoting regression of left ventricular mass in patients with hypertension and left ventricular hypertrophy. Recent research has further highlighted the positive role of irbesartan in preventing recurrence of arrhythmia in patients with persistent atrial fibrillation, when added to classical antiarrhythmic therapy. Finally, some data suggest an additional benefit in cardiac disease, through a reduction in the risk of heart failure episodes, as observed with other angiotensin receptor blockers- Integr Blood Press Control. 2011; 4: 17–26.
