The metabolites of diltiazem in the urine of rats, dogs and man and rat bile were investigated. New metabolites including six acidic metabolites (A1-A6) and four basic metabolites (M9, MB, MC, MD) were isolated by high performance liquid chromatography and their structures were characterized by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. Acidic metabolites A1,(More)
2,3-Dihydro-1,5-benzothiazepin-4(5H)-ones substituted with an alkyl, alkoxy, alkylthio, hydroxy, or amino group on the fused benzene ring of the 1,5-benzothiazepine skeleton were synthesized and their vasodilating, antihypertensive, and platelet aggregation-inhibitory activities were investigated. (-)-cis-3-Acetoxy-5-[2-(di-methylamino)(More)
The emergence of Neisseria gonorrhoeae isolates displaying resistance to antimicrobial agents is a major public health concern and a serious issue related to the occurrence of further untreatable gonorrhea infections. A retrospective analysis on 1,430 N. gonorrhoeae isolates, collected from 2003 through 2012, for antimicrobial susceptibility by Etest and(More)
In an attempt to improve the effectiveness and duration of the action of diltiazem (1), a 1,5-benzothiazepine calcium channel blocker, its derivatives (2) with halogen substituents on the fused benzene ring were synthesized. These compounds were evaluated for their effects on vertebral and coronary blood flows and antihypertensive activity. The(More)
Since azido derivatives of 1,5-benzothiazepine Ca antagonist available for photoaffinity labeling are required for further studies of voltage-sensitive Ca channels, we synthesized 3-(p-azidobenzoyloxydeacetyl)- and 3-(4-azidobutyryloxydeacetyl)-diltiazem, and studied their pharmacological properties. Both azido compounds showed similar relaxing actions to(More)
The metabolites of clentiazem in the urine or bile of rats and dogs were investigated. Fifteen basic, 6 acidic, 2 neutral and 4 conjugated metabolites were isolated. In the present paper, fourteen reference compounds as shown in Charts 1, 2 and 3 were synthesized to identify the structures of the metabolites in procedures fundamentally similar to those(More)
