OA and UA displayed antidysrhythmic effects on Ca[Cl.sub.2]-induced arrhythmia comparable to that of amiodarone (Table 4), and on adrenaline-induced dysrhythmia, a beneficial effect comparable to that of propranolol (Table 5).
In the present study, for the first time a cardiotonic and antidysrhythmic effect of four triterpenoid derivatives was presented.
The antidysrhythmic effect on adrenaline-induced arrhythmia is also suggestive of [beta]-adrenergic antagonistic effect.
The present results suggested that the beneficial antidysrhythmic efffect of the triterpenoids on ischemia-induced arrhythmia could be attributed to either [beta]-blocker activity or inhibition of [Na.sup.+]/[H.sup.+] exchanger, or both.
The beneficial antidysrhythmic effect of the triterpenoids in this type of arrhythmia can be attributed to [beta]-blocking activity and recently reported antioxidant activity (Somova et al.
