Hypotensive activity of some new 6-(alkylamino-hydroxy propoxy) benzothiadiazines and substituted benzothiadiazines
Ahmed Bahar, AA Siddiqui, Agrawal Manoj
Objective: To synthesize and study the hypotensive and (-blocking activity of some new 6-(alkylamino hydroxy propoxy) benzothiadiazines.
Methods: The hypotensive activity was studied in normotensive albino rats at a single dose of drug (1 mg/kg body wt.) and compared wiht that of same dose of propranolol. The (-blocking effect was assessed as the percentage blockade of the effect of adrenaline (5(g) by the drugs (50(g) on Frog's isolated heart.
Results: Administration of the synthesized drugs showed significant reduction in blood pressure comparable to that of propranolol at 1 mg/kg body weight dose level. Some of the derivatives (50(g) completely blocked the adrenaline (5(g) induced chronotropic effect on frog's isolated heart.
Conclusion: Our experiment suggests that the compounds synthesized have significant (-blocking and hypotensive activity and may be recommended for further investigation.
