Summary: The positive inotropic activity of MS-857, a novel cardiotonic agent, was assessed in isolated atrial and ventricular muscle of several mammalian species. MS-857 (0.1–300 μM) increased the developed tension of the dog, rabbit, monkey, cat, and guinea pig ventricular muscles in a concentration-dependent manner. However, MS-857 failed to cause a positive inotropic effect in isolated rat ventricular muscle. In isolated guinea pig atria, MS-857 caused both positive inotropic and… 

Relationship between the structure and effects of cardiotonics with nonglycoside and noncatecholamine structure

TLDR
Cardiotonic agents, including cardiac glycosides and catecholamines, are used for CCI treatment, characterized by narrow therapeutic latitude, cardioand nephrotoxicity, nonuniform absorption, etc.

Identification and characterization of isoenzymes of cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase in human kidney and heart, and the effects of new cardiotonic agents on these isoenzymes

TLDR
The present study identified and characterize the isoenzymes of cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase (PDE) and to determine their intracellular distribution in human kidney and heart and resolved one form of cAMP-PDEβ, newly recognized in human tissues.

Effects of Various Inotropic Agents on the Relation Between Ventriculoarterial Coupling and Myocardial Energetics in Patients with Idiopathic Dilated Cardiomyopathy

TLDR
Idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy is one of the fatal heart diseases which severely compromises cardiac performance and is extremely resistant to therapy and no cardiotonic agent has been reported to decrease its mortality.
