ⓘ Calcium channel blocker

Calcium channel blockers, calcium channel antagonists or calcium antagonists are a group of medications that disrupt the movement of calcium through calcium channels. Calcium channel blockers are used as antihypertensive drugs, i.e., as medications to decrease blood pressure in patients with hypertension. CCBs are particularly effective against large vessel stiffness, one of the common causes of elevated systolic blood pressure in elderly patients. Calcium channel blockers are also frequently used to alter heart rate, to prevent peripheral and cerebral vasospasm, and to reduce chest pain caused by angina pectoris.

N-type, L-type and T-type potential-dependent calcium channels are present in the Zona glomerulosa of the human adrenal gland, and BPC can have a direct impact on the biosynthesis of aldosterone in adrenocortical cells and, as a consequence, the impact on the clinical treatment of hypertension using these drugs.

The BPC was shown to be slightly more effective than beta-blockers to reduce cardiovascular mortality, but they are associated with a large number of side effects. However, there are serious risks are mainly related to short-acting CCB.
