In vitro evaluation of antiproliferative potential of calcium channel blockers in human Tenon's fibroblasts.


The calcium cation has been known to play a central and diverse role in the proliferation of numerous types of cells including fibroblasts. Therefore, ib1p4llows that calcium channel blockers (CCBs) may potentially inhibit fibroblast attachment and proliferation. The time and dose-related effects of five commonly used CCBs-verapamil, diltiazem, nicardipine… (More)
