There have been no studies of amrinone in patients with sepsis.
We, therefore, hypothesized that endotoxin induced renal injury by activating phosphodiesterase 3 (PDE3) which metabolizes cAMP and that amrinone an inhibitor of PDE3 would prevent the renal injury.
Interaction of L-Arginine Phosphodiesterase Inhibitors in Vasodilation of the Porcine Internal Mammary Artery We tested the hypothesis that L-arginine (the substrate for nitric oxide production) - combined with amrinone, milrinone (Type III phosphodiesterase [PDE] inhibitors),
Inamrinone (previously named amrinone) and milrinone are inhibitors of PDE-3 and have been studied for use in the treatment of
