Description: Fantofarone, also known as SR 33557, is a highly potent calcium channel antagonist representative of a new class of slow channel blockers. Fantofarone can significantly modify cardiac function and in particular, decrease MO2C consumption during periods of elevated heart rate. Fantofarone is able to induce submaximal peripheral vasodilating effects at doses that are devoid of any clinically significant cardiac effect.
