    Scientific background

    Mibefradil dihydrochloride hydrate, a potent T-type calcium antagonist, belongs to a new class of Ca2+ antagonists, the tetralol derivatives. It selectively blocks T-type Ca2+ channels in contrast to other Ca2+ antagonists which block only L-type channels1. Mibefradil also modulates the gating properties of KV10.1 channel6. It also blocks Orai1-3 channels with the following IC50: 52.6, 14.1, and 3.8 μM respectively, in whole-cell and excised-membrane patch clamp7.

    Mibefradil dihydrochloride hydrate has moderate selectivity for T-type Ca2+ channels displaying IC50 values of 2.7 μM and 18.6 μM for T-type and L-type channels respectively2. Mibefradil relaxes coronary arteries without suppressing myocardial contractility and causes a dose-related decrease in heart rate. Mibefradil demonstrated end organ protection such as preventing neointima formation after vascular injury and myocardial hypertrophy3. In addition, it has been shown that it inhibits human cancer cell proliferation in vitro with several cell lines including glioblastoma (GB), by inhibiting passage beyond the G1/S interphase4,5.

    Target CaV3, Orai1-3, KV10.1 channels
