1. Effect of fasudil hydrochloride, a protein kinase inhibitor, on cerebral vasospasm and delayed cerebral ischemic symptoms after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage.
Match Strength: 13.722
The efficacy and safety of fasudil hydrochloride, a novel protein kinase inhibitor, were evaluated for the treatment of cerebral vasospasm and associated cerebral ischemic symptoms in patients with ruptured cerebral aneurysm. This randomized open trial with nimodipine as the control included 72 patients who underwent subarachnoid hemorrhage surgery for ruptured cerebral aneurysm of Hunt and Hess grades I to IV. For 14 days following surgery, patients were administered either 30 mg of fasudil hydrochloride by intravenous injection over a period of 30 minutes three times a day or 1 mg/hr of ... Read More »

2. The Rho kinase inhibitor fasudil inhibits tumor progression in human and rat tumor models.
Match Strength: 6.347
The ability of cancer cells to undergo invasion and migration is a prerequisite for tumor metastasis. Rho, a Ras-related small GTPase, and the Rho-associated coiled coil-containing protein kinases (Rho kinases, ROCK1 and ROCK2) are key regulators of focal adhesion, actomyosin contraction, and thus cell motility. Inhibitors of this pathway have been shown to inhibit tumor cell motility and metastasis. Here, we show that fasudil [1-(5-isoquinolinesulfonyl)-homopiperazine], an orally available inhibitor of Rho kinases, and its metabolite 1-(hydroxy-5-isoquinoline sulfonyl-homopiperazine) (fasudil ...

3. Intravenous nicardipine: its use in the short-term treatment of hypertension and various other indications.
Match Strength: 4.407
Nicardipine is a water soluble calcium channel antagonist, with predominantly vasodilatory actions.Intravenous (IV) nicardipine (Cardene IV), which demonstrates a relatively rapid onset/offset of action, is used in situations requiring the rapid control of blood pressure (BP). IV nicardipine was as effective as IV nitroprusside in the short-term reduction of BP in patients with severe or postoperative hypertension. A potential role for IV nicardipine in the intraoperative acute control of BP in patients undergoing various surgical procedures (including cardiovascular, neurovascular and ... Read More »
