Atenolol is a widely used beta-blocker which has bioavailability of less than 50%. The objective of this research was to investigate the effect of dose, modification of gastric pH and food composition on atenolol bioavailability in normal volunteers. Our results demonstrated that the bioavailability of atenolol was dose independent in the range.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
