Candesartan Cilexetil

Molecule Structure Image



Candesartan Cilexetil is a prodrug, is hydrolyzed to candesartan during absorption from the gastrointestinal tract. Candesartan Cilexetil is rapidly and completely bioactivated by ester hydrolysis during absorption from the gastrointestinal tract to candesartan, a selective AT1 subtype angiotensin II receptor antagonist. Candesartan Cilexetil is a drug used for treating high blood pressure (hypertension). It is in a class of drugs called angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) and indicated for the treatment of patients with hypertension and patients with chronic heart failure(CHF) and left ventricular systolic dysfunction.
