Background

Verapamil (Hydrochloride) is a phenylalkylamine racemic mixture that inhibits the influx of extracellular calcium ions into myocardial and vascular smooth muscle cells by blocking L-type calcium channels and is commonly used in the treatment of high blood pressure, angina, and heart arrhythmias (1). Research has shown that Ca2+ channel blockers, such as Verapamil (Hydrochloride), can mediate Influenza A viral entry into cells (2). Studies have also shown Verapamil (Hydrochloride) to be an inhibitor of drug efflux pump proteins, such as P-glycoprotein, resulting in the reversal of multidrug resistance by tumor cells (3). As an L-type calcium channel antagonist, Verapamil (Hydrochloride) effectively inhibits Ebolaviruses (EBOV) infection with an IC50 value of 4 μM (4).
