Effects of suloctidil on lipid metabolism in experimental animals.


A novel potent vasoactive agent, 1-(4-isopropyl-thiophenyl)-2-n-octylaminopropanol (suloctidil, Sulocton), lowers excess of plasma cholesterol and tends to normalize the plasma hyperbetalipoproteinemia of Rhesus monkeys fed a high-cholesterol, high-fat diet. The drug shows an inhibitory effect on the cholesterol biosynthesis in rat liver homogenates.
