Darodipine (PY 108-068, PY-108068) is a potent calcium channel antagonist.

In Vivo

Treatment with darodipine increases the number and the average length of alkaline phosphatase-reactive capillaries and reduces the intercapillary distance and the diameter of cerebral capillaries in old rats. The pericapillary microrenvironment of the Ammon’s horn is the most sensitive to treatment with darodipine[1]. Darodipine may reduce neuronal cytoskeletal changes occurring in aging and in neurodegenerative disorders. A 6-month treatment (from the 18th to the 24th month of life) with an oral daily dose of 10 mg/kg of darodipine restores in part the expression of 200 kDa-NF subunit immunoreactivity in the cerebellar cortex[2].

Animal Administration

Rats: Male Wistar rats are used. Twelve-month-old rats are left untreated and used as adult reference animals. Twenty-one-month-old rats are allotted randomly to two groups of 8 animals each. Rats of the first group receive an oral daily dose of 5 mg/kg of darodipine in drinking water. The animals of the second group are left untreated and served as a control group. Rats of these two groups are allowed to survive for 6 months, until 27 months of age (old rats). Darodipine-treated rats have water consumption determined every second day and body weight determined weekly[1].

MCE has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.
