BACKGROUND BAY 41-2272 is a recently introduced novel orally available agent that directly stimulates soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC) and sensitizes it to its physiological stimulator, nitric oxide. To date, its therapeutic actions in congestive heart failure (CHF) remain undefined. We characterized the cardiorenal actions of intravenous BAY 41-2272 in a canine model of CHF and compared it to nitroglycerin (NTG). METHODS AND RESULTS CHF was induced by rapid ventricular pacing for 10 days… CONTINUE READING
