Rapid i.v. injection of sodium curcuminate (NaC) produced transient hypotension and bradycardia in anaesthetized dogs and cats which were not blocked by bilateral vagotomy, atropine, mepyramine or propranolol. In open-chest anaesthetized cats, decrease in blood pressure and heart rate was accompanied by simultaneous transient reductions in left ventricular systolic pressure, maximal rate of rise of left ventricular pressure and a concomitant increase in left ventricular end-diastolic pressure. It was concluded that the transient hypotensive effect of NaC is due to its myocardial depressant action. NaC exhibited negative inotropic and chronotropic effect on isolated perfused rabbit heart, an antispasmodic effect on smooth muscle of dog s intestine in vivo and of vas deferens of guinea-pig in vitro but no effect on the rectus abdominis muscle of frog or its response to cholinergic stimulation.
