Clinical pharmacology of fursemide
Fursemide (Fursemide, Furosemide, Lasix) contains a sulphamoyl benzene ring, like the thiazides, acetazolamide and many other diuretics. Some of its predecessors which were at first thought to differ from the thiazides pharmacologically, when tested by the technique of PITTS et al. (1958) and FORD and ROCHELLE (1959), have been shown to act by the same mechanisms. We therefore applied this technique to fursemide when it first became available in Great Britain.
