alpha antiadrenergic agent definition: drugs that bind to but do not activate alpha-adrenergic receptors thereby blocking the actions of endogenous or exogenous adrenergic agonists; adrenergic alpha-antagonists are used in the treatment of hypertension, vasospasm, peripheral vascular disease, shock, and pheochromocytoma.
Adrenergic alpha-Antagonists definition: Drugs that bind to but do not activate alpha-adrenergic receptors thereby blocking the actions of endogenous or exogenous adrenergic agonists. Adrenergic alpha-antagonists are used in the treatment of hypertension, vasospasm, peripheral vascular disease, shock, and pheochromocytoma.
Alpha-Adrenergic Antagonist definition: Natural or synthetic Alpha-adrenergic Blocking Agents selectively bind to adrenergic receptors, or compete with natural adrenergic mediators, and inactivate alpha adrenergic receptors of the sympathetic nervous system. These agents block the action of natural sympathomimetic neurotransmitters (norepinephrine and related substances), and can initiate physiological responses such as vasodilation, bradycardia, and pupil contraction. (NCI04)
Adrenergic beta-Antagonists definition: Drugs that bind to but do not activate beta-adrenergic receptors thereby blocking the actions of beta-adrenergic agonists. Adrenergic beta-antagonists are used for treatment of hypertension, cardiac arrhythmias, angina pectoris, glaucoma, migraine headaches, and anxiety.
Beta-Adrenergic Antagonist definition: Natural or synthetic Beta Adrenergic Blocking Agents typically bind to - but do not activate - beta-adrenergic receptors, blocking or diminishing physiologic beta-adrenergic agonist actions and activation of the sympathetic system. Reducing cardiac output, beta adrenergic antagonists are generally used for treatment of hypertension, cardiac arrythmias, angina pectoris, glaucoma, migraine headaches, and anxiety. (NCI04)
Calcium Channel Blockers definition: A class of drugs that act by selective inhibition of calcium influx through cell membranes or on the release and binding of calcium in intracellular pools. Since they are inducers of vascular and other smooth muscle relaxation, they are used in the drug therapy of hypertension and cerebrovascular spasms, as myocardial protective agents, and in the relaxation of uterine spasms.
calcium channel blocker definition: class of drugs that act by selective inhibition of calcium influx through cell membranes or on the release and binding of calcium in intracellular pools; since they are inducers of vascular and other smooth muscle relaxation, they are used in the drug therapy of hypertension and cerebrovascular spasms, as myocardial protective agents, and in the relaxation of uterine spasms.
Calcium Channels definition: Voltage-dependent cell membrane glycoproteins selectively permeable to calcium ions. They are categorized as L-, T-, N-, P-, Q-, and R-types based on the activation and inactivation kinetics, ion specificity, and sensitivity to drugs and toxins. The L- and T-types are present throughout the cardiovascular and central nervous systems and the N-, P-, Q-, & R-types are located in neuronal tissue.
