Cardiac effects of 3,5-dibenzoyl-4-(3-phenoxyphenyl)-1,4-dihydro-2,6-dimethylpyridine (DP7), a novel multidrug resistance (MDR) inhibitor, in Langendorff-perfused rat heart have been investigated and compared to that of nifedipine. Nifedipine decreased concentration-dependently (IC50=8.89+/-1.09x10(-8) M) left ventricular pressure leaving unaltered coronary perfusion pressure, whereas DP7 did not affect both parameters. Nifedipine did not modify both QRS and QT intervals of electrocardiogram (ECG). Second-degree atrioventricular block or ventricular rhythm occurred in presence of nifedipine, however, in 4 out of 6 hearts. DP7, up to 30 microM, failed to alter ECG parameters. In conclusion, DP7, may represent a lead compound for the development of potent dihydropyridine MDR chemosensitizers devoid of cardiac effects.
