We examined the effects of angiotensin II AT(1)-receptor blockade with olmesartan on high fat (HF) diet-induced vascular oxidative stress and endothelial dysfunction in normal salt (NS) diet-fed Dahl salt-sensitive (DSS) rats. Treatment with NS + HF diet (32% crude fat, 0.3% NaCl) for 20 weeks significantly increased blood pressure in DSS rats. NS + HF diet-fed DSS rats also showed higher plasma levels of thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances, aortic superoxide production, and mRNA levels of p22(phox) and gp91(phox) in aortic tissues than NS diet-fed DSS rats. Furthermore, acetylcholine-induced vasorelaxation of aorta from NS + HF diet-fed DSS rats was significantly reduced. In NS + HF diet-fed DSS rats, treatment with olmesartan medoxomil (10 mg/kg per day, p.o.) and hydralazine (25 mg/kg per day, p.o.) similarly decreased blood pressure. However, in these animals, only olmesartan normalized plasma levels of thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances, vascular superoxide in aortic tissues, and acetylcholine-induced vasorelaxation. These data indicate that HF diet-induced hypertension is associated with vascular oxidative stress and endothelial dysfunction in NS diet-treated DSS rats. Inhibition of angiotensin II AT(1) receptors may elicit beneficial effects on HF-induced hypertension and vascular injury in subjects that have genetically enhanced sodium-sensitive blood pressure.
