IUPAC NAME: O3-(2-methoxyethyl) O5-[(E)-3-phenylprop-2-enyl] 2,6-dimethyl-4-(3-nitrophenyl)-1,4-dihydropyridine- 3,5-dicarboxylate.
CAS Number : 132203-70-4
Therapeutic Category: Hypertension.

Class: Calcium Antagonists
Ã¢â¬ÅCILNIDIPINE is Calcium Channel Blocker. Is a dual blocker of L-type voltage-gated calcium channels in vascular smooth muscle and N-type calcium channels in sympathetic nerve terminals that supply blood vessels. This is new generation product which is much more advanced than Amlodipine series
Mechanism of Action:
Cilnidipine is a dihydropyridine calcium-channel blocker. It inhibits cellular influx of calcium, thus causing vasodilatation. It has greater selectivity for vascular smooth muscle. It has little or no action at the SA or AV nodes and -ve inotropic activity is rarely seen at therapeutic doses
CILNIDIPINE ADVANTAGES OVER AMLODIPINE:
One of the main advantage of CILNIDIPINE is it reduces the incidence of Pedal Edema unlike Amlodipine.
CILNIDIPINE due to its blocking action at N-type calcium channel dilates both arteriole & venules as a result the pressure in the capillary bed is reduces. The accumulated fluid in the tissues flows back to veins & thus Cilnidipine minimizes the incidence of pedal edema. L-type calcium channel blocker (Amlodipine) dilates the only arterioles & not the venules, hence blood pressure increases in the capillary bed and are thought to cause leg edema.
CILNIDIPINE has similar blood pressure lowering efficacy as compared to amlodipine
One of the distinct property of CILNIDIPINE from amlodipine is that it does not cause reflex tachycardia.
Hence Cilnidipine compels to rethink on Hypertension Management:
Improves baroreflex sensitivity
Improves NO availability
Ensures Antiproliferative effect
Inhibition of platelet activity
Exerts Antiarrhythmic effect
Reduction in Serum uric acid
