NON CLASSIC REVERSAL AGENTS
Besides cholinesterase inhibitors, two
unique drugs (sugammadex and L-cysteine) are currently under investigation in
the United States; these agents act as selective antagonists of nondepolarizing
neuro-muscular blockade. Sugammadex is able to reverse aminosteroid-induced
neuromuscular blockade, whereas cysteine has been shown to reverse the neuromuscular
blocking effects of gantacurium and other fumarates.
