Nebivolol: A beta antagonist with novel pharmacologic properties

News
Article

Nebivolol is a beta-blocker under FDA review for the treatment of hypertension. Nebivolol has unique pharmacologic properties, including high specificity for the beta-1 receptor and a nitric oxide-mediated vasodilatory effect. The agent provides significant blood pressure reduction from baseline values and as compared to placebo. Clinical trials have demonstrated that nebivolol reduces blood pressure similarly to atenolol, bisoprolol, amlodipine, nifedipine, lisinopril, and hydrochlorothiazide. The tolerability of nebivolol is similar to or better than that of these agents. If approved, nebivolol would likely be a viable alternative therapy for hypertension; however, additional studies are needed in patients with heart failure and coronary artery disease.
