Calcium channel antagonists have a well-established role in the management of cardiovascular diseases. L-type calcium channels in vascular cells are a key therapeutic target in hypertension and are the preferred molecular target of the initial calcium channel antagonists. However, third-generation dihydropyridine (DHP) calcium channel antagonists, including manidipine, nilvadipine, benidipine and efonidipine, appear to have effects in addition to blockade of the L-type calcium channel.
