The pharmacomodulation of sulfonylureas structurally related to torasemide and characterized by a TXA(2)antagonism led to the synthesis of BM-573. This original molecule showed a high affinity (IC(50)1.3 nM) for the TXA(2)receptor of human platelets in comparison with both reference compounds, SQ-29548 (IC(50)21 nM) and sulotroban (IC(50)930 nM). Moreover, this torasemide derivative was found to be a potent inhibitor of human platelet aggregation induced by arachidonic acid (ED(100)=0.13 microM) or by U-46619 (ED(50)=0.24 microM), a TXA(2)agonist. BM-573 relaxed the isolated rat thoracic aorta (ED(50)=28.4 nM) and guinea-pig trachea (ED(50)=17.7 nM) contracted by U-46619. BM-573 (1 microM) completely reduced the platelet production of TXB(2)induced by arachidonic acid. Finally, BM-573 (30 mg/kg, per os) lost the diuretic properties of torasemide in rats.
