Abstract

A new class of cardiotonic agents characterized by a 2-pyridone structure was synthesized. Appropriate sym-2-dimethylaminomethylene-1,3-diones reacted with methylcyanoacetate to afford the desired compounds. These derivatives were evaluated for their ability in inducing cardiotonic response on guinea pig isolated myocardial preparations. Compound 8b increased atrial contractility to an extent which is significantly higher than that of milrinone, the parent drug used as a reference compound. The pharmacological characterization and the docking studies performed on 8b highlighted its selective mechanism of action via type 3 PDE (PDE3) inhibition. A new positive inotropic agent, milrinone analogue, with a specific mechanism of action via PDE3 inhibition is presented.
