1 The antiarrhythmic, haemodynamic and metabolic effects of a new amino steroid, ORG6001, have been investigated in experimental acute myocardial infarction in anaesthetized greyhounds. 2 ORG6001 administered either intravenously (2-10 mg/kg) or orally (50 mg/kg) significantly reduced the incidence of ventricular ectopic beats in the first 30 min after ligation of the left anterior descending coronary artery. 3 In dogs pretreated with ORG6001, metabolic changes indicative of myocardial ischaemia (lactate production and potassium efflux) were less marked than those occurring in control animals. 4 Antiarrhythmic doses of ORG6001 caused only minimal transient haemodynamic effects. 5 These results suggest that ORG6001 may possess distinct advantages over presently-used antiarrhythmic drugs in the prevention and treatment of the early arrhythmias which occur after myocardial infarction.
