Fasudil Properties


Molecule Structure Image



Fasudil is a potent Rho-kinase inhibitor and vasodilator. Since it was discovered, it has been used for the treatment of cerebral vasospasm, which is often due to subarachnoid hemorrhage, as well as to improve the cognitive decline seen in stroke victims. It has been found to be effective for the treatment of pulmonary hypertension. It was demonstrated in February 2009 that Fasudil could also be used to enhance memory and improve the prognosis of Alzheimers patients.
