Application

Amlodipine besylate is a L-type calcium channel blocker which may be used for the treatment of angina pectoris and hypertension. Amlodipine also inhibits growth of human epidermoid carcinoma A431 cells and has antireproductive effects in male rats.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Amlodipine is an L-type calcium channel blocker. Amlodipine belongs to a class of cardiovascular drugs, which act at the voltage gated calcium channel of the CaV1, or L-type, class. Amlodipine also has antihypertensive and antianginal effects. Its activity resides mainly in the (-)-isomer. Amlodipine inhibits growth of human epidermoid carcinoma A431 cells and has antireproductive effects in male rats.
