The effects of S-145, a newly synthesized thromboxane, A2 (TXA2) receptor antagonist, were studied on collagen-induced changes of electrocardiograms (ECG) in rats and thrombocytopenia in rats and mice. Intravenous injection of collagen induced abnormal ECG changes such as elevation or depression of the ST segment, arrhythmia and in severe cases, cardiac arrest. These changes peaked at 3-5 min and lasted for 10 min. S-145 showed remarkable improvement of the ECG changes by both intravenous and oral administration, and the action lasted over 4 hr with 10 mg/kg, p.o. Reference compounds ONO-3708, dazoxiben and aspirin also improved the ECG changes significantly, but ticlopidine was ineffective. S-145 prevented the collagen-induced thrombocytopenia in rats but did not affect the increase in plasma TXB2 levels. S-145 also prevented collagen-induced thrombocytopenia in mice after either intravenous or oral administration in a dose-dependent manner. The efficacy of S-145 was 4-13 times greater than those of the reference compounds, and the duration of action was over 4 hr with 10 mg/kg, p.o. These results indicate that S-145 is a potent, orally, active and long-lasting TXA2 receptor antagonist, which will be promising as a drug for thromboembolism and ischemic heart disease caused by platelet activation.
