Comparative effects of nebivolol and metoprolol on red cell distribution width and neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio in patients with newly diagnosed essential hypertension



Comparative effects of nebivolol and metoprolol on red cell distribution width and neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio in patients with newly diagnosed essential hypertension



Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology 62(4): 388-393



High level of circulating red cell distribution width (RDW) and neutrophil/lymphocyte (N/L) ratio may reflect ongoing vascular inflammation and play an important role in pathophysiology of hypertension. We evaluate the effects of nebivolol and metoprolol on the RDW and N/L in new essential hypertensive patients. After baseline assessment, 72 patients were randomly allocated to 5 mg/d of nebivolol (n = 37, 20 men) or 100 mg/d of metoprolol (n = 35, 18 men) and treated for 6 months. Blood pressure (BP), heart rate (HR), RDW, and N/L were measured before and after treatment. BP significantly decreased with both drugs (P < 0.001). Analog reduction was observed for resting HRs (P < 0.001), but metoprolol caused greater HR fall as compared with nebivolol (P < 0.001). After 6 months of treatment, nebivolol significantly lowered not only RDW but also the total white blood cell and N/L (P < 0.001, P = 0.023, P = 0.017, respectively). No changes were observed in metoprolol group. Percent decrease in RDW was found to be significantly higher in nebivolol than in the metoprolol group (P = 0.001) and remained also after correction for confounders (P = 0.012). Nebivolol improved RDW and N/L to a greater extent than metoprolol in patients with hypertension. These favorable effects may participate, together with the BP reduction, at the favorable properties of the drug in hypertension.
