Definition: A hydrochloride salt resulting from the reaction of equimolar amounts of dexverapamil and hydrogen chloride. It competitively inhibits the multidrug resistance efflux pump P-glycoprotein (MDR-1, EC 3.6.3.44), thereby potentially increasing the effectiveness of a wide range of antineoplastic drugs which are inactivated by MDR-1 mechanisms. Dexverapamil hydrochloride exhibits lower calcium antagonistic activity and toxicity than racemic verapamil hydrochloride.
