Mechanism of action

Cardiac damage due to the buildup of sodium (Na+) ischemia and early reperfusion leads to increased calcium (Ca2+) through the reverse mode Na+/Ca2+(NCX) ion exchanger. Caldaret is an intracardiac calcium (Ca2+) handling modulator whose cardioprotective actions are presumed to be due to inhibition o... Read more
