Changrolin is 4-{3’,5’-bis [(N-pyrrolidinyl) methyl]-4’-hydroxyanilino}-quinazoline. BL-4712A is (±)-5-endo-(3-indolecarbonyloxy)-N-(dimethylaminopropyl)-bicyclo[2.2.1] heptane-2,3-di-endo-carboxylic acid imide hydrochloride. Their acute ip LD50 in mice were 342 and 83 mg/kg, respectively. At equitoxic doses (same fractions of LD50) changrolin and BL-4712A were injected iv to compare their antiarrhythmic actions on 5 models: 1) iv aconitine in rats, 2) ouabain infusion in rabbits, 3) topical application of ACh on right atrium of dogs, 4) iv BaCl2 in rats, and 5) electrical stimulation of rabbit hearts.
