Mechanism of Action of Drugs

Mechanism of Action of Drugs

Ivabradine is a pulse lowering agent that works through selective and specific inhibition of the channels in the heart in a concentration-dependent manner without affecting any other cardiac ionic channels (including calcium or potassium). Ivabradine binds by entering and attaching to a site on the channel pore from the intracellular side and disrupts ion flow, which prolongs diastolic depolarization, lowering pulse rate. It then lowers the pacemaker firing rate, consequently lowering pulse and reducing myocardial oxygen demand. This enables for an improved blood and oxygen supply to the heart muscles, allowing for a higher exercise capacity and reduction in angina episodes.
