ACE-Hemmer für Katzen

ATCvet: QC09AA07

Zusammensetzung

Benazeprili hydrochloridum: 5 mg

Aromatica, Excipiens pro compresso.

Fachinformationen Wirkstoffe (CliniPharm)

Benazepril

Eigenschaften / Wirkungen

Benazeprilhydrochlorid ist eine inaktive Vorstufe (Prodrug), die in der Leber zu

Benazeprilat hydrolisiert wird. Dieser aktive Metabolit hemmt das Angiotensin Converting

Ezyme (ACE) und damit die Umwandlung von inaktivem Angiotensin I zu aktivem

Angiotensin II. Daher hemmt Benazeprilat alle durch Angiotensin II vermittelten Effekte,

vor allem die arterielle und venöse Vasokonstriktion, sowie die Synthese von Aldosteron

und dadurch bedingt die Rückresorption von Natrium und Wasser aus den Nierentubuli.

Benazeprilat verursacht langfristig die Hemmung des plasmatischen ACE, wobei nach

Verabreichung einer Einzeldosis die Wirkung über einen Zeitraum von 24 Stunden anhält.

Bei niereninsuffizienten Katzen senkt Benazepril den systemischen und intraglomerulären

Blutdruck, sowie die Permeabilität der glomerulären Basalmembran und kann dadurch

Proteinverluste im Urin sowie die Progression der Niereninsuffizienz reduzieren.

Diese Wirkung wird wahrscheinlich durch die verminderte glomeruläre Hypertension und

den daraus resultierenden positiven Effekt auf die glomeruläre Basalmembran erreicht.

Benazepril steigert den Appetit von Katzen insbesondere im fortgeschrittenen

Krankheitsstadium.

Pharmakokinetik

Nach oraler Verabreichung wird Benazepril rasch aus dem Magen-Darm-Trakt resorbiert.

Ein Teil des resorbierten Benazeprils wird durch Leberenzyme zum Wirkstoff Benazeprilat

hydrolisiert. Der Rest besteht aus unverändertem Benazepril und hydrophilen Metaboliten.

Die Bioverfügbarkeit liegt sowohl im nüchternen Zustand als auch nach Mahlzeiten bei

etwa 9%. Nach Verabreichung von Nelio 5 mg bei Katzen in einer Dosierung von 0.65 mg/

kg wurden die höchsten Konzentrationen von Benazeprilat (etwa 110 ng/ml) innerhalb von

1.5 Stunden erreicht. Die Halbwertszeit von Benazeprilat betrug 12.5 Stunden.

Sowohl Benazepril als auch Benazeprilat verfügen über eine hohe Bindungsrate an

Plasmaproteine.

Die wiederholte Verabreichung führt zu geringfügiger Akkumulation von Benazeprilat im

Plasma, wobei ein Fliessgleichgewicht (Steady State) in weniger als vier Tagen erreicht

wird.

Bei Katzen wird Benazeprilat zu 85% über die Galle und zu 15% mit dem Urin

ausgeschieden. Da die Ausscheidung von Benazeprilat bei Katzen nicht von einer

verringerten glomerulären Filtrationsrate beeinflusst wird, ist es nicht notwendig, eine

Anpassung der Dosierung vorzunehmen.

Indikationen

Zur Verminderung der Proteinurie bei chronischer Niereninsuffizienz bei Katzen mit einem

Gewicht über 2.5 kg.

Die minimale Tagesdosis beträgt 0.5 mg Benazeprilhydrochlorid pro kg KGW, mit oder

ausserhalb einer Mahlzeit, d.h. eine Tablette pro 10 kg nach folgender Tabelle:

Gewicht des Tieres (kg) Anzahl Tabletten

2.5 - 5

5 - 10

Die nicht verwendete Hälfte der Tablette wieder in den leeren Blister zurücklegen und bei

der nächsten Gabe verabreichen.

Die Tabletten sind aromatisiert und werden von den Katzen oft spontan aufgenommen.

Die Verabreichung kann direkt in das Maul der Katze oder mit etwas Futter erfolgen.

Anwendungseinschränkungen

Kontraindikationen

Nicht anwenden bei bekannter Überempfindlichkeit gegenüber ACE-Hemmern oder

anderen Bestandteilen dieses Tierarzneimittels.

Nicht bei Katzen mit obstruktiver hypertropher Kardiomyopathie verwenden.

Vorsichtsmassnahmen

Die Sicherheit dieses Arzneimittels wurde bei trächtigen und säugenden Tieren nicht

untersucht. Darf nicht bei trächtigen, säugenden oder für die Zucht bestimmten Kätzinnen

angewendet werden.

Im Rahmen von klinischen Studien wurden bei Katzen keine Anzeichen von Nierentoxizität

durch Benazepril beobachtet.

Wird das Medikament bei Tieren mit Niereninsuffizienz angewendet, sollten routinemässig

Plasma-Harnstoff- und Kreatininwerte überwacht werden.

Es liegen keine Angaben zu Wirksamkeit und Sicherheit von Benazepril bei Katzen mit

einem Körpergewicht von weniger als 2.5 kg vor.

Da Studien zur potentiellen Interaktion mit nichtsteroidalen Entzündungshemmern

(NSAID) fehlen, kann der Einsatz von Nelio Cat 5 zusammen mit NSAID nicht empfohlen

werden. Nicht anwenden bei Hypotension, Hypovolämie, Hyponatriämie oder akutem

Nierenversagen.

Da das Tierarzneimittel aromatisiert ist, besteht die Gefahr, dass Hunde und Katzen die

Tabletten gezielt aufsuchen und übermässig aufnehmen. Aus diesem Grund ist das

Präparat für Tiere unerreichbar aufzubewahren.

Unerwünschte Wirkungen

VetVigilance: Pharmacovigilance-Meldung erstatten

Benazepril kann bei einem geringen Anteil der behandelten Katzen leichten, zeitweise

auftretenden Durchfall verursachen.

Bei Katzen mit chronischer Niereninsuffizienz kann Benazepril zu Beginn der Therapie

einen Anstieg der Plasma-Kreatininkonzentration bewirken. Dieser Effekt steht mit der

blutdrucksenkenden Wirkung des Arzneimittels in Zusammenhang. Wenn keine weiteren

Symptome auftreten, ist eine Beendigung der Therapie nicht erforderlich.

In hohen Dosierungen reduziert Benazepril bei gesunden Katzen die Erythrozytenzahl.

Diese Wirkung wurde jedoch bei klinischen Versuchen mit an chronischer

Niereninsuffizienz leidenden Katzen bei der Verabreichung der empfohlenen Dosierungen

nicht beobachtet. Es wird, wie bei allen Fällen von chronischer Niereninsuffizienz, die

übliche routinemässige Überwachung der Erythrozytenzahl während der Therapie

empfohlen.

In seltenen Fällen wurden bei Katzen Erbrechen, Appetitlosigkeit, Dehydratation und

Lethargie beobachtet.

Überdosierung

Bei versehentlicher Überdosierung kann es zu einer vorübergehenden reversiblen

Hypotonie kommen. Die Behandlung erfolgt symptomatisch mit intravenöser Infusion von

körperwarmer physiologischer Kochsalzlösung.

Bei Katzen verlief eine tägliche 10-fache Überdosierung über einen Zeitraum von einem

Jahr asymptomatisch.

Wechselwirkungen

Bei mit Benazepril behandelten Katzen sollte als Vorsichtsmassnahme der Blutdruck

während einer Anästhesie überwacht werden.

Wechselwirkungen mit kaliumsparenden Diuretika wie Spironolacton, Triamteren oder

Amilorid können nicht ausgeschlossen werden. Um das Auftreten möglicher

lebensbedrohlicher Reaktionen zu vermeiden, wird bei gleichzeitiger Anwendung von

Benazepril und kaliumsparenden Diuretika die regelmässige Überwachung der Plasma-

Kaliumwerte empfohlen.

Sonstige Hinweise

Anwender mit bekannter Überempfindlichkeit gegenüber Benazepril oder einem anderen

Wirkstoff derselben Substanzklasse sollten den Kontakt mit dem Produkt vermeiden.

Schwangere Frauen sollten eine versehentliche Einnahme des Produktes unbedingt

vermeiden, da ACE-Hemmer beim Menschen während der Schwangerschaft schädliche

Wirkungen auf das ungeborene Kind haben.

-Nach Anwendung des Präparates Hände waschen.

-Ausserhalb der Reichweite von Kindern aufbewahren.

Bei versehentlicher Einnahme durch Kinder sollte umgehend ein Arzt aufgesucht und die

Packungsbeilage oder das Etikett vorgelegt werden.

-Bei Raumtemperatur (15 - 25°C) lagern.

-Haltbarkeit der angebrochenen Tabletten: 72 Stunden.

Das Medikament darf nur bis zu dem auf dem Behälter mit "Exp." bezeichneten Datum

verwendet werden.

Statement from FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, M.D., on the FDA’s new consideration of labeling for sesame allergies

Statement from FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, M.D., on the FDA’s new consideration of labeling for sesame allergies

Food allergies have touched the lives of most of us. Thousands of Americans experience life-threatening, food-related reactions each year, and an estimated 20 people die from them annually. In some cases, such reactions occur despite a careful reading of packaged food labels by conscientious consumers. To me, that’s unacceptable. The FDA is committed to advancing our efforts to help ensure that Americans have access to the information they need about common allergens in packaged foods.
