Modification of the size of developing infarcts in the ligated dog heart by betahistine-HCL.

The effectiveness of beta-histine-HCL in modifying the size of developing myocardial infarcts was tested in the surgically ligated dog. Branches of the left coronary artery were ligated and a 6-hour continuous intravenous infusion of 0.24 mg/kg/min of beta-histine was administered from 0 to 120 min after ligation. The effect of this treatment was evaluated histologically in studies on acute ischemia by the use of the hematoxylin-basic fuchsin-picric acid stain for early myocardial ischemia. The treatment was also evaluated grossly in a study on chronic ischemia where the dogs were permitted to survive for 30 days before sacrifice. In these experiments the size of infarcts found in the beta-histine-treated animals was compared with those found in the saline controls. Both studies showed that the control ligations produced a large uniform area of ischemia or infarction that was greatly reduced or prevented by immediate treatment with beta-histine. Also, beta-histine was capable of significantly reducing the size of developing infarcts for up to 120 min after ligation.[1]
