    ..We conclude that NNC 55-0396, by virtue of its modified structure, does not produce the metabolite that causes inhibition of L-type Ca2+ channel channels, thus rendering it more selective to T-type Ca2+ channels. ..

    ..Since T-type Ca(2+) channels are not expressed in epithelial cells, selective T-type Ca(2+) channel blockers may be useful in the treatment of certain types of cancers. ..
