BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation (AF) is one of the most common causes of hospital admission, with a prevalence of up to 5% of the population, increasing with advancing age. Emergency direct current cardioversion is the therapy of choice when arrhythmia leads to hemodynamic compromise, but in patients who are hemodynamically stable, antiarrhythmic drugs are(More)
The antiarrhythmic effect of oral captopril was studied during the early (day 3) and late (day 14) phase of acute myocardial infarction among 304 patients in a randomized placebo-controlled substudy of ISIS-4. Ventricular arrhythmias (ventricular ectopic beats per hour) occurred significantly less frequently among captopril-allocated patients than among(More)
BACKGROUND Paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) and paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT) leading to hemodynamic compromise are among the most common reasons for admission to the coronary care unit (CCU) and need prompt and efficient therapy. Direct current cardioversion is the therapy of choice, but if found contraindicated or unavailable some(More)
A new group of quaternary ammonium lactate based ionic liquids have been prepared and characterized. Didecyldimethylammonium (DDA) and benzalkonium (BA) D,L- and L-lactates are air-stable, hydrophilic, surface-active salts. They are very effective antibacterial and antifungal agents, especially the DDA lactates, against Streptococcus mutants and Candida(More)
Preparation and affinity to 5-HT1A and 5-HT2A receptors of new buspirone analogues 7-17 are reported. The compounds possess high to low affinity to 5-HT1A and moderate to low to 5-HT2A receptors. The crystal structures have been determined for compounds 11, 12, 13, and 14. For low affinity ligand (15) of 5-HT1A receptor conformational analysis was performed(More)
A novel class of functionalized cationic surfactant has been obtained. The work-up procedure of synthesis is very simple, the yield is high and the pyridinium salts with alkoxymethyl hydrophobic group are easily purified. All the salts examined showed anti-microbial activities. Some of them exhibited strong activity and wide anti-bacterial spectra similar(More)
An interdisciplinary (X-ray, 1H and 13C NMR, IR, and theoretical quantum mechanical) study on the potent 5-HT1A receptor ligand buspirone (1) and its two structural analogues, mesmar (4,4-dimethyl-1-[4-[4-(2-quinolinyl)-1-piperazinyl]butyl]-2,6- piperidinedione) (2) and kaspar (8-[4-[4-(2-quinolinyl)-1-piperazinyl]butyl]-8-azaspiro[4.5]decane - 7,9-dione)(More)
A series of alpha-asarone isomers was synthesized and investigated for their hypolipidemic and antiplatelet activity. Considering the hypolipidemic activity in rats at a dose of 80 mg/kg/day, some isomers were more potent than clofibrate at 150 mg/kg. Compound 3 was one of the most active agents elevating the HDL cholesterol level by 56% and lowering the(More)
Rigid analogues of buspirone and gepirone, 5-HT1A receptors partial agonists, were obtained. The compounds exhibited very low affinity to the receptors. Their structural features resembled to a large extent the arrangement of the respective structural elements found in the solid state of buspirone and in the theoretical structure of NAN-190 (5-HT1A(More)
It is generally accepted that the specific, energetically preferred conformation of a compound decides on the nature of interactions with pharmacological receptor. Therefore it is of basic importance to get an insight into such molecular parameters as charge distribution, most preferred conformations or the distances between specified points within a(More)
