Calcium Channel Blockers
A 170-kDa transmembrane glycoprotein from the superfamily of ATP-BINDING CASSETTE TRANSPORTERS. It serves as an ATP-dependent efflux pump for a variety of chemicals, including many ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENTS. Overexpression of this glycoprotein is associated with multidrug resistance (see DRUG RESISTANCE, MULTIPLE).
Diminished or failed response of an organism, disease or tissue to the intended effectiveness of a chemical or drug. It should be differentiated from DRUG TOLERANCE which is the progressive diminution of the susceptibility of a human or animal to the effects of a drug, as a result of continued administration.
A basic element found in nearly all organized tissues. It is a member of the alkaline earth family of metals with the atomic symbol Ca, atomic number 20, and atomic weight 40. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body and combines with phosphorus to form calcium phosphate in the bones and teeth. It is essential for the normal functioning of nerves and muscles and plays a role in blood coagulation (as factor IV) and in many enzymatic processes.
A potent calcium channel blockader with marked vasodilator action. It has antihypertensive properties and is effective in the treatment of angina and coronary spasms without showing cardiodepressant effects. It has also been used in the treatment of asthma and enhances the action of specific antineoplastic agents.
Agents used for the treatment or prevention of cardiac arrhythmias. They may affect the polarization-repolarization phase of the action potential, its excitability or refractoriness, or impulse conduction or membrane responsiveness within cardiac fibers. Anti-arrhythmia agents are often classed into four main groups according to their mechanism of action: sodium channel blockade, beta-adrenergic blockade, repolarization prolongation, or calcium channel blockade.
An optical isomer of quinine, extracted from the bark of the CHINCHONA tree and similar plant species. This alkaloid dampens the excitability of cardiac and skeletal muscles by blocking sodium and potassium currents across cellular membranes. It prolongs cellular ACTION POTENTIALS, and decreases automaticity. Quinidine also blocks muscarinic and alpha-adrenergic neurotransmission.

Antibody-Dependent Cell Cytotoxicity
The phenomenon of antibody-mediated target cell destruction by non-sensitized effector cells. The identity of the target cell varies, but it must possess surface IMMUNOGLOBULIN G whose Fc portion is intact. The effector cell is a "killer" cell possessing Fc receptors. It may be a lymphocyte lacking conventional B- or T-cell markers, or a monocyte, macrophage, or polynuclear leukocyte, depending on the identity of the target cell. The reaction is complement-independent.

Antiproteinuric efficacy of verapamil in comparison to trandolapril in non-diabetic renal disease. (1/2289)BACKGROUND: Non-dihydropyridine calcium antagonists such as verapamil are equally effective in reducing proteinuria as ACE inhibitors in hypertensive patients with diabetic nephropathy. To date it is unknown whether verapamil elucidates such an antiproteinuric capacity in non-diabetic renal disease. METHODS: We performed a double-blind, placebo-controlled, random cross-over study which compared the antiproteinuric effect of 6 weeks treatment with verapamil SR (360 mg) to that of the ACE inhibitor trandolapril (4 mg), and their fixed combination vera/tran (180 mg verapamil SR and 2 mg trandolapril) in 11 non-diabetic patients with proteinuria of 6.6 (5.1-8.8) g/day, a creatinine clearance of 87 (74-106) ml/min, and a 24-h blood pressure of 136/85 (126/76-157/96) mmHg at baseline. RESULTS: Twenty-four-hour mean arterial pressure did not change during verapamil, whereas both trandolapril and vera/tran induced a significant reduction in MAP. Verapamil showed no significant effects on renal haemodynamics. Trandolapril and vera/tran did not significantly change GFR, but ERPF increased and FF decreased during both treatments (P<0.05). The antiproteinuric response of verapamil was significantly less compared to that of trandolapril and vera/tran (-12% (-17/-1) vs -51% (-56/-25) and -41% (-50/-19) respectively). The blood pressure and antiproteinuric response during verapamil tended to be greater in hypertensive patients than in normotensive patients, although this difference was not significant. Baseline blood pressure was related to the change in blood pressure during verapamil (r = -0.70; P < 0.02). CONCLUSIONS: The antiproteinuric and antihypertensive response of verapamil is less than that of the ACE inhibitor trandolapril in patients with non-diabetic renal disease. In contrast to the antiproteinuric response of trandolapril, the antiproteinuric reponse of verapamil seems to be completely dependent from effective blood pressure reduction. The fixed combination of verapamil and ACE inhibition at half doses has similar effects as ACE inhibition at full dose. (+info)
Effect of verapamil treatment on compensatory renal growth in mice. (2/2289)Calcium has been shown to control the proliferation of various cells in vitro and in vivo. In this study we have attempted to modify compensatory renal growth by pharmacological interventions in mice who have undergone uninephrectomy. The effect of a calcium channel blocker verapamil was investigated. Unilateral nephrectomy of intact male mice produced the expected increase in weight of the remaining kidney by 67.5+/-8.1%. This rise was accompanied by a proportional increase in RNA. In mice, cell hypertrophy was found to be a major factor in compensatory renal growth. Verapamil given in a i.p. dose of 1.0 or 2.0 mg/day/mouse attenuated the growth of the remaining kidney so that its weight rose by only 48.2+/-6% and 28.2+/-4.4 %, respectively. In vivo administration of verapamil decreased the degree of compensatory renal growth and this growth inhibiting effect was directly proportional to the dose. (+info)
Multidrug resistance (MDR1) P-glycoprotein enhances esterification of plasma membrane cholesterol. (3/2289)Class I P-glycoproteins (Pgp) confer multidrug resistance in tumors, but the physiologic function of Pgp in normal tissues remains uncertain. In cells derived from tissues that normally express Pgp, recent data suggest a possible role for Pgp in cholesterol trafficking from the plasma membrane to the endoplasmic reticulum. We investigated the esterification of plasma membrane cholesterol under basal conditions and in response to sphingomyelinase treatment in transfected and drug-selected cell lines expressing differing amounts of functional class I Pgp. Compared with parental NIH 3T3 fibroblasts, cells transfected with human multidrug resistance (MDR1) Pgp esterified more cholesterol both without and with sphingomyelinase. Esterification also was greater in drug-selected Dox 6 myeloma cells than parental 8226 cells, which express low and non-immunodetectable amounts of Pgp, respectively. However, no differences in total plasma membrane cholesterol were detected. Transfection of fibroblasts with the multidrug resistance-associated protein (MRP) did not alter esterification, showing that cholesterol trafficking was not generally affected by ATP-binding cassette transporters. Steroidal (progesterone, dehydroepiandrosterone) and non-steroidal antagonists (verapamil, PSC 833, LY335979, and GF120918) were evaluated for effects on both cholesterol trafficking and the net content of 99mTc-Sestamibi, a reporter of drug transport activity mediated by Pgp. In Pgp-expressing cells treated with nonselective and selective inhibitors, both the kinetics and efficacy of inhibition of cholesterol esterification differed from the antagonism of drug transport mediated by Pgp. Thus, although the data show that greater expression of class I Pgp within a given cell type is associated with enhanced esterification of plasma membrane cholesterol in support of a physiologic function for Pgp in facilitating cholesterol trafficking, the molecular mechanism is dissociated from the conventional drug transport activity of Pgp.

Functional and molecular characterization of a volume-sensitive chloride current in rat brain endothelial cells. (4/2289)1. Volume-activated chloride currents in cultured rat brain endothelial cells were investigated on a functional level using the whole-cell voltage-clamp technique and on a molecular level using the reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). 2. Exposure to a hypotonic solution caused the activation of a large, outward rectifying current, which exhibited a slight time-dependent decrease at strong depolarizing potentials. The anion permeability of the induced current was I- (1.7) > Br- (1.2) > Cl- (1.0) > F- (0. 7) > gluconate (0.18). 3. The chloride channel blocker 5-nitro-2-(3-phenylpropylamino)-benzoate (NPPB, 100 microM) rapidly and reversibly inhibited both inward and outward currents. The chloride transport blocker 4,4'-diisothiocyanatostilbene-2, 2'-disulphonic acid (DIDS, 100 microM) also blocked the hypotonicity-induced current in a reversible manner. In this case, the outward current was more effectively suppressed than the inward current. The volume-activated current was also inhibited by the antioestrogen tamoxifen (10 microM). 4. The current was dependent on intracellular ATP and independent of intracellular Ca2+. 5. Activation of protein kinase C by phorbol 12,13-dibutyrate (PDBu, 100 nM) inhibited the increase in current normally observed following hypotonic challenge. 6. Extracellular ATP (10 mM) inhibited the current with a more pronounced effect on the outward than the inward current. 7. Verapamil (100 microM) decreased both the inward and the outward hypotonicity-activated chloride current. 8. RT-PCR analysis was used to determine possible molecular candidates for the volume-sensitive current. Expression of the ClC-2, ClC-3 and ClC-5 chloride channels, as well as pICln, could be shown at the mRNA level. 9. We conclude that rat brain endothelial cells express chloride channels which are activated by osmotic swelling. The biophysical and pharmacological properties of the current show strong similarities to those of ClC-3 channel currents as described in other cell types. (+info)
Effects of captopril and enalaprilat on intracellular Ca2+, Na+ contents and pH in hypoxic and reoxygenated cardiomyocytes. (5/2289)AIM: To study the mechanisms of captopril (Cap) and enalaprilat (Ena) protective effects on hypoxic and reoxygenated cardiac myocytes. METHODS: Using fluorescent probes Fura 2-AM, BCECF/AM, SBFI/AM combined with computer image processing techniques to measure intracellular ion concentrations. RESULTS: [Ca2+]i (165 +/- 8 nmol.L-1) and [Na+]i (9.2 +/- 0.8 mmol.L-1) were higher but [pH]i (6.7 +/- 0.3) was lower in hypoxic and reoxygenated myocytes (196 +/- 14 nmol.L-1, 9.3 +/- 1.3 mmol.L-1, 6.61 +/- 0.19, respectively) than in normal ones. Cap and Ena reduced [Ca2+]i (149 +/- 11 and 152 +/- 10 nmol.L-1 respectively) and intracellular acidosis (7.11 +/- 0.22 and 7.2 +/- 0.4, respectively) during hypoxia. Cap also decreased [Na+]i in hypoxic myocytes (8.1 +/- 0.9 mmol.L-1). During reoxygenation, Cap decreased [Ca2+]i and [Na+]i but Ena had no significant effect on them. Cap or Ena had no additive effect when combined with verapamil (Ver). CONCLUSION: Cap and Ena protected hypoxic and reoxygenated cardiomyocytes, but the mechanisms were not the same. (+info)
Fetal tachycardias: management and outcome of 127 consecutive cases. (6/2289)OBJECTIVE: To review the management and outcome of fetal tachycardia, and to determine the problems encountered with various treatment protocols. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective analysis. SUBJECTS: 127 consecutive fetuses with a tachycardia presenting between 1980 and 1996 to a single tertiary centre for fetal cardiology. The median gestational age at presentation was 32 weeks (range 18 to 42). RESULTS: 105 fetuses had a supraventricular tachycardia and 22 had atrial flutter. Overall, 52 fetuses were hydropic and 75 non-hydropic. Prenatal control of the tachycardia was achieved in 83% of treated non-hydropic fetuses compared with 66% of the treated hydropic fetuses. Digoxin monotherapy converted most (62%) of the treated non-hydropic fetuses, and 96% survived through the neonatal period. First line drug treatment for hydropic fetuses was more diverse, including digoxin (n = 5), digoxin plus verapamil (n = 14), and flecainide (n = 27). The response rates to these drugs were 20%, 57%, and 59%, respectively, confirming that digoxin monotherapy is a poor choice for the hydropic fetus. Response to flecainide was faster than to the other drugs. Direct fetal treatment was used in four fetuses, of whom two survived. Overall, 73% (n = 38) of the hydropic fetuses survived. Postnatally, 4% of the non-hydropic group had ECG evidence of pre-excitation, compared with 16% of the hydropic group; 57% of non-hydropic fetuses were treated with long term anti-arrhythmics compared with 79% of hydropic fetuses. CONCLUSIONS: Non-hydropic fetuses with tachycardias have a very good prognosis with transplacental treatment. Most arrhythmias associated with fetal hydrops can be controlled with transplacental treatment, but the mortality in this group is 27%. At present, there is no ideal treatment protocol for these fetuses and a large prospective multicentre trial is required to optimise treatment of both hydropic and non-hydropic fetuses. (+info)
Exercise gas transport determinants in elderly normotensive and hypertensive humans. (7/2289)This study examined the effect of the phenylalkylamine calcium channel blocker verapamil, on resting left ventricular (LV) function and O2 uptake rate (VO2) during exercise at maximal and submaximal work rates. Nine older hypertensive (71 years; OH), 10 older sedentary normotensive (69 years; OS), 10 older active (71 years; OA) and 10 young (24 years; Y) individuals volunteered. Studies were completed in the control condition and 4-6 h following 240 mg verapamil SR per os. Resting LV systolic (fractional shortening; FS) and diastolic (early: late (E/A) flow velocity ratio and isovolumic relaxation time (IVRT) were measured by Doppler echocardiography. Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2,max) and, on subsequent test days, four transitions to and from a 6 min square wave exercise perturbation at a sub-anaerobic threshold intensity of 40 W (OH, OS, OA) or 100 W (Y) for determination of VO2 kinetics were performed on a cycle ergometer. Breath-by-breath VO2 transients were fitted with a monoexponential equation, starting at phase 2 of the response, while heart rate (HR) was fitted from phase 1, for the determination of the time constant of VO2 (tau VO2) and HR (tau HR). Baseline left ventricular FS was significantly greater in the OS (32%), OA (34%) and Y (34%) than in the OH (23%) groups, while E/A was significantly greater in the OA (1.16) and Y (2.34) than in the OH (0.9) and OS (0.82) groups (P < 0.05). Baseline VO2,max was higher and tau VO2 faster in the young (41.4 ml kg-1 min-1; 25.2 s) than in the older groups and in the OA (28.8 ml kg-1 min-1; 44.3 s) than in both OH (20.8 ml kg-1 min-1; 71.3 s) and OS (22.0 ml kg-1 min-1; 59.5 s) groups (P < 0.05). Heart rate kinetics showed similar differences to VO2 kinetics among the groups. After verapamil, no significant changes in FS, E/A or IVRT were observed in the OA and Y groups. In the OH group, FS (32%) and E/A (1.15) increased while IVRT decreased significantly (from 0.103 to 0.07; P < 0.05). In the OS group, only E/A increased significantly (0.82 to 1.0; P < 0.05). None of the exercise variables (VO2,max, tau VO2 or tau HR) were altered for the OA or Y groups. VO2,max increased (from 20.8 to 22.8 ml kg-1 min-1) in the OH and (from 22.0 to 24.1 ml kg-1 min-1) in the OS (P < 0.05). tau VO2 was accelerated from 71.3 to 49.2 s in the OH group and from 59.5 to 48.2 s in the OS group (P < 0.05). These results suggest that VO2 responses at maximal and submaximal work rates may be dependent upon the initial cardiac pump function of the study population. (+info)
A region in IVS5 of the human cardiac L-type calcium channel is required for the use-dependent block by phenylalkylamines and benzothiazepines. (8/2289)Mutations in motif IVS5 and IVS6 of the human cardiac calcium channel were made using homologous residues from the rat brain sodium channel 2a. [3H]PN200-110 and allosteric binding assays revealed that the dihydropyridine and benzothiazepine receptor sites maintained normal coupling in the chimeric mutant channels. Whole cell voltage clamp recording from Xenopus oocytes showed a dramatically slowed inactivation and a complete loss of use-dependent block for mutations in the cytoplasmic connecting link to IVS5 (HHT-5371) and in IVS5 transmembrane segment (HHT-5411) with both diltiazem and verapamil. However, the use-dependent block by isradipine was retained by these two mutants. For mutants HHT-5411 and HHT-5371, the residual current appeared associated with a loss of voltage dependence in the rate of inactivation indicating a destabilization of the inactivated state. Furthermore, both HHT-5371 and -5411 recovered from inactivation significantly faster after drug block than that of the wild type channel. Our data demonstrate that accelerated recovery of HHT-5371 and HHT-5411 decreased accumulation of these channels in inactivation during pulse trains and suggest a close link between inactivation gating of the channel and use-dependent block by phenylalkylamines and benzothiazepines and provide evidence of a role for the transmembrane and cytoplasmic regions of IVS5 in the use-dependent block by diltiazem and verapamil.
