. ST 600 [2-(5 fluoro-O-toluidine)-2 imidazoline hydrochloride] in doses 2.5 to 40 'g injected into the isolated perfused guineapig heart caused an increase in contractile force. The effects of ST 600 were blocked by metiamide (3x 10-5M). Mepyramine or reserpine treatment (5mg/kg i.p.; 24 h prior to the experiment) did not influence the contractile effects of ST 600. Clonidine and ST 600 both produced parallel dose-response curves, which were competitively antagonized by H1-receptor antagonists burimamide and metiamide respectively. It is suggested that the inotropic action of ST 600 is due to stimulation of histamine H2-receptors.
