Disease relevance of ALMITRINE

  • With ALM, saturation did not differ from PL during air breathing but significantly exceeded SaO2 with PL, by 3.4% during resting hypoxia, by 4.0% at the start of exercise, and by 5.9% at exhaustion [1].

High impact information on ALMITRINE

  • ALM was associated with an increased heart rate during room air breathing but not during hypoxia [1].
  • N2 test, NaCN test, 20 s of 5% O2 inhalation and almitrine bismesylate (ALM) were used as PCS, ranged in the order of their relative intensities, from the ventilatory responses observed in IR-rats [2].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of ALMITRINE

  • The respiratory response and changes of functional residual lung capacity were measured in the rat after intravenous administration of the drug S 2620 in a dose of 0.4 mg/kg [3].
