      Bosentan Monohydrate

      Used For


      How it works

      Bosentan is a dual endothelin receptor antagonist with affinity for both ETA and ETB receptors. Bosentan decreases both pulmonary and systemic vascular resistance, resulting in increased cardiac output without increasing heart rate. The neurohormone endothelin is a potent vasoconstrictor with the ability to promote fibrosis, cell proliferation, and tissue remodeling. Endothelin concentrations in plasma and tissues are increased in a number of cardiovascular disorders, including pulmonary hypertension, suggesting a pathological role for endothelin in these diseases. In pulmonary arterial hypertension, endothelin plasma concentrations strongly correlate with poor prognosis .

      When not to Use

      It is contraindicated in patients: Who are hypersensitive to bosentan or to any excipient in the formulation ; Who are pregnant, or of childbearing potential unless adequate contraceptive measures are taken. Fetal malformations were reported in animals .



      Cases of pulmonary edema have been reported with vasodilators (mainly prostacyclins) when used in patients with pulmonary veno-occlusive disease. Consequently, should signs of pulmonary edema occur when Bosentan is administered in patients with Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) , the possibility of associated veno-occlusive disease should be considered.


      Warning 1

      The efficacy of bosentan has not been established in patients with severe Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Transfer to a therapy that is recommended at the severe stage of the disease (e.g. epoprostenol) should be considered if the clinical condition deteriorates .

      Warning 2

      Bosentan should only be initiated if the systemic systolic blood pressure is higher than 85 mmHg.

      Warning 3

      Bosentan has not been shown to have a beneficial effect on the healing of existing digital ulcers.
