Octylonium Bromide has been reported to antagonize PAF (platelet-activating factor) induced aggregation of rabbit platelet-rich plasma, hypotension in rats, lethality in mice, and bronchoconstriction in guinea-pigs. This compound also demonstrates the ability to potently block neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptors and also a mild wide-spectrum Ca2+ channel blocker in bovine adrenal chromaffin cells. Additionally, Octylonium Bromide has been shown to inhibit muscular action potentials carried by L-type Ca2+ current. Octylonium Bromide is an inhibitor of PAF-R.
