The aminopyridines (4-aminopyridine [AP] and 3,4-diaminopyridine [DAP]) are potassium channel blockers shown to improve nerve conduction in experimentally demyelinated axons.
Finally, some drugs (e.g., aminoglycoside antibiotics) can potentiate and prolong the effect of botulinum toxin, whereas others (e.g., guanidine and aminopyridines) can limit its effect.
Over the past few years, work has moved ahead rapidly on drugs called aminopyridines, which block potassium channels.
