Despite the inhibition of HMG CoA reductase, hepatic cholesterol content does not fall, because hepato- cytes compensate any drop in choleste- rol levels by increasing the synthesis of LDL receptor protein (along with the re- ductase). Because the newly formed re- ductase is inhibited, too, the hepatocyte must meet its cholesterol demand by uptake of LDL from the blood (B). Ac- cordingly, the concentration of circulat- ing LDL decreases, while its hepatic clearance from plasma increases. There is also a decreased likelihood of LDL be- ing oxidized into its proatheroslerotic degradation product. The combination of a statin with an ion-exchange resin intensifies the decrease in LDL levels. A Lüllmann, Color Atlas of Pharmacology © 2000 Thieme All rights reserved.

The drugs principally used are thiazides (possibly combined with K+-sparing diuretics) and loop diu- retics. Lüllmann, Color Atlas of Pharmacology © 2000 Thieme All rights reserved.

The brain edema, and acute glaucoma. intracellular concentration of Na+ is sig- nificantly below that in primary urine. This concentration gradient is the driv- ing force for entry of Na+ into the cytosol of tubular cells. A carrier mechanism moves Na+ across the membrane. Ener- gy liberated during this influx can be utilized for the coupled outward trans- port of another particle against a gradi- ent. From the cell interior, Na+ is moved with expenditure of energy (ATP hy- drolysis) by Na+/K+-ATPase into the ex- tracellular space. The enzyme molecules are confined to the basolateral parts of the cell membrane, facing the interstiti- um; Na+ can, therefore, not escape back into tubular fluid. All diuretics inhibit Na+ reabsorp- tion. Basically, either the inward or the outward transport of Na+ can be affect- ed. Lüllmann, Color Atlas of Pharmacology © 2000 Thieme All rights reserved.
