A few derivatives of natural, bicyclic monoterpenes, which are propranolol analogs, were synthetized. Those compounds were studied pharmacologically in order to determine their toxicity, antiarrhythmic activity in selected experimental models of arrhythmia, the local anesthetic effect and influence on the cardiovascular system. The tested compounds showed a(More)
Synthesis and physicochemical and pharmacological properties of 10 analogs of 2-[2-(6,6-dimethylbicyclo[3.1.1]hept-2-en-2-yl)ethoxy]N, N-diethylamino ethane (3) have been described. The compounds possess toxicity close to or lower than the parent compound--myrtecaine, have no antiarrhythmic activity but some of them (15, 16, 22, 24), similarly as compound(More)
The aim of this work was to determine the influence of ethanol on the antiarrhythmic activity of verapamil in the model of calcium arrhythmia in rats non-dependent and dependent on ethanol. The results of the experiment show that a combined, single administration of ethanol and verapamil attenuates in a statistically significant manner the antiarrhythmic(More)
Esters of N,N-diethylaminoacetic acid and hydroxyamines, obtained from structurally different natural monoterpenes, were pharmacologically examined. It was proved that salts of the obtained compounds had local anesthetic properties in infiltration anesthesia, compounds 9, 6 and 8 having been more potent than lidocaine. Compounds 7-9 slightly increased the(More)
Nordihydroguaiaretic acid inhibits prostaglandin (PG) biosynthesis in vitro (ID50=228 muM), with a slope of dose-response curve high (b=209) as compared with indomethacin (ID50=0.1 muM, b=72.1). Butylated hydroxyanisole, in contrast to inactive butylated hydroxytoluene, inhibits PG biosynthesis (ID50=107 muM, b=63). Only norihydroguaiaretic acid (100 mug,(More)
Simulataneous oral administration of butylhydroxytoluene (BHT) (50 or 100 mg/kg) with indomethacin (IND) (3, 6 or 20 mg/kg) prevented the damaging effect of IND on the rat gastric mucosa. Butylhydroxyanisole (BHA) and nordihydroguiaretic acid (NDGA) rather potentiated than prevented the noxious action of IND. A reduction of IND toxicity without affecting(More)
The effect of ethyl alcohol on the antiarrhythmic action of atenolol in the adrenaline-induced arrhythmia model was studied in rats non-dependent and dependent on ethanol. Atenolol administered jointly with ethanol, in a single dose or repeatedly produced a weaker antiarrhythmic effect than when it was given alone. Moreover, a rise in animal mortality was(More)
