Comparison of KRN2391 with nicorandil and nifedipine on canine coronary blood flow: antagonism by glibenclamide.

The mode of action of KRN2391 [N-cyano-N'-(2-nitroxyethyl)-3- pyridinecarboximidamide monomethanesulfonate] in coronary circulation was examined in anesthetized dogs in comparison with those of nicorandil and nifedipine. Administration of KRN2391 (10 micrograms/kg i.v.), nicorandil (300 micrograms/kg i.v.), and nifedipine (3 micrograms/kg i.v.) caused an… (More)
