CAS#: 74764-40-2

Description: Bepridil Hydrochloride is the hydrochloride salt form of bepridil, a calcium antagonist and class IV anti-arrhythmic agent. Bepridil hydrochloride blocks calcium entry through membranous calcium channels of coronary and peripheral vascular smooth muscle, thereby dilating coronary arteries and peripheral arterioles. This drug is used to treat chronic stable and variant angina pectoris. Bepridil hydrochloride has antihypertensive and selective anti-arrhythmia activities and acts as a calmodulin antagonist.
