Starr,1 in 1937, reported striking relief of rest pain except in the presence of gangrene or undrained purulent infection.
Chemistry and Pharmacology.1, 2 Carbaminoylcholine chloride (NH2COOCH2CH2N(CH3)3Cl) was first synthesized in 1932 by Kreitmair. Its actions parallel the effects produced by stimulation of the parasympathetic nerves such as general vasodilatation, drop in blood pressure, increased salivation, gastrointestinal peristalsis, uterine
