Vitofyllin contains propentofylline.
Propentofylline has been shown to increase blood flow, particularly of the heart and skeletal muscle. It also increases the blood flow of the brain and therefore its oxygen supply, without increasing the brain's glucose demand. It has a modest positive chronotropic effect and a marked positive ionotropic effect. In addition, it has been shown to have an anti-arrhythmic effect in dogs with myocardial ischemia and a bronchodilator action equivalent to that of aminofylline.
Propentofylline inhibits platelet aggregation and improves the flow properties of erythrocytes.
It has a direct effect on the heart and reduces peripheral vascular resistance thereby lowering cardiac load.
Propentofylline may increase willingness to exercise and exercise tolerance, particularly in older dogs.
