4,5-dihydro-3(2H)pyridazinones such as CI-914, CI-930 and pimobendan along with tetrahydropyridopyridazine (endralazine) and perhydropyridazinodiazepine (cilazopril) have been used as potent positive inotropes, antihypertensives as well as platelet aggregation inhibitors. Accordingly, the present work involves the synthesis of 24 target compounds; 4,5-dihydro-3(2H)pyridazinones in addition to seven reported intermediates. The chemical structures of the new compounds were assigned by microanalysis, IR, 1H-NMR spectral analysis and some representatives by mass spectrometry. The positive inotropic effect of the final compounds and the intermediates 12a-12d as well as the reported intermediate compound 10 was determined in-vitro on isolated rabbit heart in comparison to digoxin. Data obtained revealed that twelve of the test compounds exhibited higher effective response than digoxin, nine compounds elicited comparable effects to digoxin and eight compounds were less active than digoxin. In addition, four compounds approved marked significant hypotensive effect better than that of the previously reported compound 10. Moreover, two compounds induced complete platelet aggregation inhibition. The last two compounds were also subjected to determination of their LD50 and they showed no signs of toxicity up to the dose level 300 mg/kg (i.p.), while the reported oral LD50 of digoxin is 17.78 mg/kg. Correlation of cardiotonic and hypotensive activities with structures of compounds was tried and pharmacophore models were computed to get useful insight onto the essential structural features required for inhibiting phosphodiesterase-III in the heart muscles and blood vessels.
