Description

Application

Azelnidipine is a novel dihydropyridine derivative, a L-type calcium channel blocker, and an antihypertensive. Acute administration of azelnidipine prevents a sudden drop of cardiac function after acute stress. Azelnidipine may have a protective role in inflammation associated with atherosclerosis.

Packaging

10, 50 mg in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Azelnidipine, a novel dihydropyridine derivative, is a L-type calcium channel blocker and antihypertensive. Unlike other L-type calcium channel blockers, azelnidipine causes minimal stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system despite its significant depressor effect. Azelnidipine may have a protective role in inflammation in atherosclerosis.
