Lanatoside C

"Cedilanid" redirects here. It is not to be confused with Cedilanide, a trade name of deslanoside.

Lanatoside C (or isolanid) is a cardiac glycoside, a type of drug that can be used in the treatment of congestive heart failure and cardiac arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat). Lanatoside C can be used orally[1] or by the intravenous route.[2] It is marketed in a number of countries and is also available in generic form.[3] Its main indications are rapid response atrial fibrilation and paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia, two common types of arrhythmia.

It is found in Digitalis lanata.[4]

Chemistry

The substance is composed of four monosaccharides (glucose, 3-acetyldigitoxose and two digitoxoses) and an aglycon named digoxigenin.[5]
