Losartan potassium is the first orally active angiotensin-II receptor (type-AT1) antagonist. Angiotensin-II is a potent vasoconstrictor, which is the primary vasoactive hormone of the renin-angiotensin system and an important component in the pathophysiology of hypertension. Losartan and its principal active metabolite block the vasoconstrictor and aldosterone secreting effects of angiotensin-II to the AT1 receptor. Osartan is now regarded as the first choice therapy for treating high blood pressure.
