Histamine H3 receptor inverse agonists are known to enhance the activity of histaminergic neurons in brain and thereby promote vigilance and cognition. 1-{3-[3-(4-Chlorophenyl)propoxy]propyl}piperidine, hydrochloride (BF2.649) is a novel, potent, and selective nonimidazole inverse agonist at the recombinant human H3 receptor. On the stimulation of guanosine(More)
BF2.649, a high affinity and selective non-imidazole histamine H(3)-receptor antagonist/inverse agonist, was found to easily enter the brain after oral administration to mice: it displayed a ratio of brain/plasma levels of about 25 when considering either C(max) or AUC values. At low oral doses (2.5-20mg/kg), it elicited in mice a dose-dependent wakening(More)
In the search for novel antiarrhythmic agents, compounds with a diversity of electrophysiological actions have been suggested to result in treatments with potentially improved efficacy but with reduced proarrhythmic risk. To test this hypothesis, the antiarrhythmic versus proarrhythmic profile of BRL-32872, a novel agent with combined potassium and calcium(More)
The effects of the Ito blocker, tedisamil (0.1, 1.0, and 3.0 mg/kg, IV), and the IK blocker, E-4031 (0.1, 1.0, and 3.0 mg/kg, IV), on the incidence and duration of reperfusion-induced arrhythmias were compared in the anesthetized rat (n = 12 per group). Reperfusion arrhythmias were evaluated after a 5 minute occlusion period of the left main coronary(More)
The effects of the specific bradycardic agent, zatebradine (UL-FS 49), on ventricular arrhythmias occurring during an acute ischemia were compared to those of verapamil. Anesthetized rabbits were submitted to a ligation of the left circumflex coronary artery for 20 min. Zatebradine (150 and 750 micrograms/kg, i.v.) dose-dependently reduced heart rate, but(More)
