The use of inotropes for correcting hemodynamic dysfunction in patients with congestive heart failure has been described over many decades. Drugs such as cardiac glycosides, cathecolamines, phosphodiestherase inhibitors, and calcium sensitizers have been in turn proposed. However, the number of new chemical entities in this therapeutic field has been surprisingly low, and the current selection of drugs is limited. One of the paradigm shifts in the discovery for new inotropes was to focus on… CONTINUE READING
