IC50: 4.7 nM

Eniporide is a Na+/H+ exchange inhibitor.

Regulation of intracellular pH is a very complex process and reflects a net balance of alkalinizing and acidification processes. The Na+-H+ exchange plays a critical role in the regulation of intracellular pH by removing protons.

In vitro: Eniporide was identified as a selective inhibitor of Na+-H+ exchange and a compound of the benzoylguanidine group. In addition, eniporide and its metabolite were found to inhibit the Na+-H+ exchange in acidified rabbit erythrocytes with an IC50 value of 4.7 ± 0.6 and 15 ± 3 nM, respectively [1].

In vivo: Animal study showed that the pretreatment of the mice with the eniporide led to a substantial decrease of annexin-V–positive cardiomyocytes in the I/R 30/90 group from 20.2% to 2.2%. Moreover, the pretreatment of I/R 30/90 mice with eniporide resulted in the complete absence of IgG-positive cells, suggesting that the cardiomyocytes with extensive cell membrane leakage were a result of an active cell death program [2].

Clinical trial: Clinical pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic evaluation of eniporide with platelet swelling time as a biomarker has been reported. Eniporide showed linear pharmacokinetics with an average half-life of 2 hours. The mean total body clearance and volume of distribution were 34.4 L/h and 77.5 L, respectively. An average of 43% of the dose was recovered unchanged from urine [1].
