Pharmacological properties


Etatsizin is an antiarrhythmic drug of IC class. Has a pronounced and long-lasting antiarrhythmic effect. Inhibits the rate of increase of the action potential front, does not change the resting potential. Affects mainly sodium channels (both on the outer and inner surface of the cell membrane), reduces the amplitude and slows down the processes of inactivation and reactivation of fast sodium current. Blocks the entry of calcium ions through the slow channels of the membrane. Prolongs the duration of refractory periods of the atria and arthrioventricular node. Slows down the rate of increase of the action potential in the atrial and ventricular fibers of Purkinje and additional pathways of excitation through the atrioventricular (AV) node and the Kent bundle. Inhibits sinoatrial conduction, especially in the syndrome of sinus node weakness, spreads the QRS complex on the electrocardiogram (approximately 25%), as it slows the conduction of the ventricles (in the His-Purkinje system). Has a negative isotropic effect, shows local anesthetic and antispasmodic activity.

Etatsizin does not change the heart rate with short-term use and reduces with long-term use.

Etacizin Pharmacokinetics.

When taken orally, etatsizin is rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and is detected in the blood in 30-60 minutes. The maximum concentration of etatsizin in blood plasma is registered in 2,5–3 hours. Bioavailability – 40%. 90% is bound to blood proteins. The half-life averages 2.5 hours. All these pharmacokinetic parameters are subject to significant individual fluctuations. Etatsizin is intensively metabolized during the first passage through the liver. Some of the metabolites formed have antiarrhythmic activity.

It is excreted in the urine as metabolites.
