Abstract


The thiazide diuretics are the first line treatment recommended for hypertension, in particular hydrochlorothiazide (HCT). The aim of the present study is to evaluate the diuretic activity of HCT- ?-Cyclodextrin (HCT-?CD) inclusion complex in comparison with HCT alone. Vehicle (distilled water), HCT- ?CD complex (10mg/kg) and HCT alone (10mg/kg) were administered orally to male wistar rats and their urine output was quantitated after 24 hours. Volume, pH, conductivity, and Na+, Cl -, K + concentrations of urine were measured. The results showed significant improvement of the urine output of HCT-?CD complex compared to HCT alone respectively 5,52 0.52 versus 4,3 0.28 ml/100g/24h . Urinary electrolyte excretion and conductivity was also incresead. Significant diuretic (p < 0.05) and electrolyte excretion effects (p < 0.05) were observed in treated groups by HCT-?CD complex compared to the control and reference standard (hydrochlorothiazide). Therefore, we can conclude that HCT-?CD complex produced notable diuretic effect.
