Profiles of aprindine, cibenzoline, pilsicainide and pirmenol in the framework of the Sicilian Gambit. The Guideline Committee for Clinical Use of Antiarrhythmic Drugs in Japan (Working Group of Arrhythmias of the Japanese Society of Electrocardiology). (1/17)

The Vaughan Williams classification has been used widely by clinicians, cardiologists and researchers engaged in antiarrhythmic drug development and testing in many countries throughout the world since its initial proposal in the early 1970s. However, a major criticism of the Vaughan Williams system arose from the extent to which the categorization of drugs into classes I-IV led to oversimplified views of both shared and divergent actions. The Sicilian Gambit proposed a two-dimensional tabular framework for display of drug actions to solve these problems. From April to December 1996, members of the Guideline Committee met to discuss pharmacologic profiles of 4 antiarrhythmic drugs (aprindine, cibenzoline, pilsicainide, and pirmenol) that were not included in the original spreadsheet but are used widely in clinical practice in Japan. The discussion aimed to fit the drug profiles into the Gambit framework based on all the important literature published to date regarding the actions of the 4 drugs. This report is a summary of that deliberation.  (+info)

Inhibitory effects of aprindine on the delayed rectifier K+ current and the muscarinic acetylcholine receptor-operated K+ current in guinea-pig atrial cells. (2/17)

In order to clarify the mechanisms by which the class Ib antiarrhythmic drug aprindine shows efficacy against atrial fibrillation (AF), we examined the effects of the drug on the repolarizing K+ currents in guinea-pig atrial cells by use of patch-clamp techniques. We also evaluated the effects of aprindine on experimental AF in isolated guinea-pig hearts. Aprindine (3 microM) inhibited the delayed rectifier K+ current (IK) with little influence on the inward rectifier K+ current (IK1) or the Ca2+ current. Electrophysiological analyses including the envelope of tails test revealed that aprindine preferentially inhibits IKr (rapidly activating component) but not IKs (slowly activating component). The muscarinic acetylcholine receptor-operated K+ current (IK.ACh) was activated by the extracellular application of carbachol (1 microM) or by the intracellular loading of GTPgammaS. Aprindine inhibited the carbachol- and GTPgammaS-induced IK.ACh with the IC50 values of 0.4 and 2.5 microM, respectively. In atrial cells stimulated at 0.2 Hz, aprindine (3 microM) per se prolonged the action potential duration (APD) by 50+/-4%. The drug also reversed the carbachol-induced action potential shortening in a concentration-dependent manner. In isolated hearts, perfusion of carbachol (1 microM) shortened monophasic action potential (MAP) and effective refractory period (ERP), and lowered atrial fibrillation threshold. Addition of aprindine (3 microM) inhibited the induction of AF by prolonging MAP and ERP. We conclude the efficacy of aprindine against AF may be at least in part explained by its inhibitory effects on IKr and IK.ACh.  (+info)

Inhibitory effect of aprindine on Na+/Ca2+ exchange current in guinea-pig cardiac ventricular myocytes. (3/17)

1. Using the whole-cell voltage clamp technique, the effect of aprindine on Na+/Ca2+ exchange current (I(NCX)) was examined in guinea-pig single cardiac ventricular myocytes and CCL39 fibroblasts expressing a dog cardiac Na+/Ca2+ exchanger (NCX1). 2. I(NCX) was recorded by ramp pulses from the holding potential of -60 mV with the external solution containing 140 mM Na+ and 1 mM Ca2+, and the pipette solution containing 20 mM Na+, 20 mM BAPTA and 13 mM Ca2+ (433 nM free Ca2+). 3. External application of aprindine suppressed I(NCX) in a concentration-dependent manner. The IC50 values of outward (measured at 50 mV) and inward (measured at -100 mV) I(NCX) components were 48.8 and 51.8 microM with Hill coefficients of 1.3 and 1, respectively. 4. Intracellular application of trypsin via the pipette solution did not change the blocking effect of aprindine, suggesting that aprindine does not affect the exchanger from the cytoplasmic side. 5. Aprindine inhibited I(NCX) of a mutant NCX1 with a deletion of amino acids 247 - 671 in the large intracellular domain between the transmembrane segments 5 and 6 in a similar manner to that of the wild-type, suggesting that the site of aprindine inhibition is not in the large intracellular domain of NCX1. 6. A kinetic study indicated that aprindine was cooperatively competitive with KB-R7943, another inhibitor of NCX and that aprindine was a competitive inhibitor with respect to external Ca2+. 7. We conclude that aprindine may modestly inhibit I(NCX) in a therapeutic range of concentrations (around 2.5 approximately 6.9 microM) possibly at an external or intra-membranous site of the exchanger.  (+info)

Double-blind placebo-controlled trial of aprindine and digoxin for the prevention of symptomatic atrial fibrillation. (4/17)

A multicenter, placebo-controlled, randomized, double-blind trial compared the preventive effect of aprindine and digoxin on the recurrence of atrial fibrillation (AF) with placebo, and also compare the effectiveness of these 2 drugs in the prevention of AF. Patients with symptomatic paroxysmal or persistent AF who had converted to sinus rhythm (SR) were randomly assigned aprindine (40 mg/day), digoxin (0.25 mg/day) or placebo and followed up on an outpatient basis every 2 weeks for 6 months. Of the 141 patients from 36 participating centers, 47 were given aprindine, 47 digoxin, and 47 were on placebo. After the 6-month follow-up, the Kaplan-Meier estimates of the percentage of patients remaining free of recurrent symptomatic AF on aprindine, digoxin and placebo were 33.3%, 29.2% and 21.5%, respectively. In patients remaining in SR for 15 days after from the start of follow-up, freedom from recurrence was significantly more prevalent in the aprindine group than in the placebo group (p=0.0414), but there was no significant difference between the digoxin and placebo groups. The rate of adverse events was similar in the 3 groups. In conclusion, neither aprindine nor digoxin had a significant effect on preventing relapse of symptomatic AF; however, recurrence of AF occurred later with aprindine than with placebo or digoxin.  (+info)

Antiarrhythmic effect of aprindine on several types of ventricular arrhythmias. (5/17)

The antiarrhythmic effect of aprindine was compared with those of lidocaine and propranolol on several ventricular arrhythmias-epinephrine arrhythmias in cats, ouabain arrhythmias in cats and guinea pigs, ischemic ventricular arrhythmias in coronary-ligated Beagle dogs. Antiarrhythmic effects of aprindine and lidocaine were observed both in ouagain and ischemic arrhythmias, but not in epinephrine arrhythmias. While propranolol had a strong antiarrhythmic effect against epinephrine and ouabain arrhythmias, it did not increase sinus beats in ischemic arrhythmias. Marked anti-arrhythmic effects of aprindine in ischemic arrhythmias were observed in dogs using either single intravenous administration (4 mg/kg) or intravenous infusion (200 mug/kg/min, 2 mg/kg). Antiarrhythmic activity of aprindine is considered to be about twice as strong as that of lidocaine, but lidocaine is less toxic in experimental animals.  (+info)

Atrial fibrillation threshold predicted long-term efficacy of pharmacological treatment of patients without structural heart disease. (6/17)

AIMS: To ascertain if an electrophysiological study could predict long-term efficacy of anti-arrhythmic drugs in the treatment of lone atrial fibrillation. METHODS AND RESULTS: Forty-four patients (36 males, 8 females, age 55.5 +/- 10.6) with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation were enrolled to undergo serial electrophysiological studies at the bedside. Two quadripolar catheters were inserted via the subclavian vein. Disopyramide (D: 2 mg/kg iv), cibenzoline (C: 1.4 mg/kg iv), aprindine (A: 2 mg/kg iv), pilsicainide (P: 2 mg/kg po) and flecainide (F: 3 mg/kg po) were tested. Atrial fibrillation threshold (AFT) was measured as the lowest current amplitude of rapid pacing (50 Hz for 1 s) to induce atrial fibrillation lasting more than 30 s. Before drug treatment, AFT was 3.9 +/- 0.3 mA. Pharmacological treatment raised AFT as follows: D 5.9 +/- 0.9 mA, C 7.6 +/- 1.2 mA, A 8.1 +/-1.1 mA, P 6.0 +/- 0.8 mA, F 7.3 +/- 1.1 mA. Recurrence of atrial fibrillation was observed during 1-year follow-up in 12% of cases when they were treated with a drug that raised AFT by 5 mA or more. On the other hand, the recurrence rate was 87% when patients were treated with a drug that raised AFT by less than 5 mA (P = 0.001). CONCLUSION: AFT was a good predictor of long-term efficacy of pharmacological treatment against atrial fibrillation.  (+info)

Maintenance of sinus rhythm and recovery of atrial mechanical function after cardioversion with bepridil or in combination with aprindine in long-lasting persistent atrial fibrillation. (7/17)

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to evaluate pharmacological cardioversion of long-lasting persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) using bepridil in terms of recovery of atrial mechanical function and maintenance of sinus rhythm. Bepridil alone or in combination with aprindine is effective for termination of persistent AF. METHODS AND RESULTS: The study group comprised 38 consecutive patients (24 men, 58.8+/-9.3 years) with successful conversion of persistent AF lasting >1 month either pharmacologically (Group I) or electrically (Group II). Fast Fourier transform analysis of fibrillation waves was performed and fibrillation cycle length (FCL) was calculated from the peak frequency. In Group I, sinus rhythm was pharmacologically restored in 22 patients after an average 30 days (7-49 days) of bepridil administration, either alone (11) or in combination with oral aprindine (11); they were followed up while using the same drugs. In Group II, electrical conversion restored sinus rhythm in 16 patients, and they were followed up with conventional antiarrhythmic drugs other than bepridil and aprindine. After bepridil treatment FCL increased and became significantly longer in Group I than in Group II (190+/-39 vs 150+/-29 ms, p<0.001). Atrial peak velocity in transmitral flow within the first week after cardioversion was greater in Group I than in Group II (68+/-35 vs 32+/-20 cm/s, p<0.05). By Kaplan-Meier analysis, 83% of Group I patients were free of AF recurrence at the 12-month follow-up, compared with 36% in Group II (p<0.005). CONCLUSIONS: In patients with long-lasting AF, pharmacological conversion with bepridil alone or in combination with aprindine recovered atrial mechanical function better and maintained sinus rhythm longer than electrical conversion.  (+info)

Drug-induced changes in fibrillation cycle length and organization index can predict chemical cardioversion of long-lasting atrial fibrillation with bepridil alone or in combination with aprindine. (8/17)

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to investigate whether drug-induced changes in fibrillation wave characteristics can predict pharmacological conversion of long lasting persistent atrial fibrillation (AF). METHODS AND RESULTS: The study group comprised 23 consecutive patients with AF lasting > or =1 month. Patients first received bepridil (200 mg/day) for 2-4 weeks. When sinus rhythm was not restored with bepridil, oral aprindine (40 or 60 mg/day) was added to bepridil. Fast Fourier transform analysis of fibrillation waves using lead V1 was performed to calculate the fibrillation cycle length (FCL). The spectral areas were measured and the maximum area divided by the total area was termed the fibrillation organization index (FOI). Sinus rhythm was restored in 16 of 23 patients (70%); 8 of these 16 patients received only bepridil (Group I) and the other 8 responders received bepridil and aprindine (Group II). In Group I bepridil increased both FCL (p<0.001) and FOI (p<0.01) and terminated AF after 20+/-12 days. In Group II bepridil increased FCL (p<0.001), but did not change FOI. The addition of aprindine terminated AF in association with an increase in both FCL (p<0.005) and FOI (p<0.005) within 19+/-8 days. In the remaining 7 patients who did not have restoration of sinus rhythm, bepridil increased both FCL and FOI significantly, but less than in Group I, and the addition of aprindine did not further increase either of them. Chemical cardioversion of AF occurred in all patients with FCL > or =190 ms and FOI > or =45% after drug administration. CONCLUSION: Bepridil alone or in combination with aprindine converted long lasting persistent AF in association with an increase in both FCL and FOI. The combination of FCL and FOI after drug administration is helpful in predicting chemical cardioversion of persistent AF.  (+info)

It is well known that amiodarone is effective for the treatment of atrial fibrillation. However, effects of amiodarone on the muscarinic acetylcholine receptor-operated K+ current (IK.ACh), which plays an important role in the repolarization of atrial action potential, have not been evaluated. This study was undertaken to determine whether amiodarone inhibits the acetyl-choline-sensitive muscarinic K+ (KACh) channel by use of the patch-clamp technique. In isolated guinea pig atrial cells, IK.ACh was activated by extracellular application of carbachol (1 microM) or adenosine (10 microM) or by the intracellular loading of GTP gamma S (100 microM). Amiodarone inhibited the IK.ACh activated in these three different ways with similar IC50 values around 2 microM, which indicated that amiodarone directly depresses the function of the KACh channel itself and/or GTP-binding proteins. Single KACh channel current was also recorded by use of a pipette solution containing carbachol (1 microM) or atropine (10 ...
The present study was undertaken to determine whether class Ic antiarrhythmic agents, flecainide and pilsicainide, improve ischemia/reperfusion-induced cardiac contractile dysfunction. Isolated rat hearts were subjected to a 35-min global ischemia, followed by a 60-min reperfusion, and the functional and metabolic consequences were examined. Ischemia/reperfusion resulted in no recovery of contractile function and a sustained rise in left ventricular and diastolic pressure of the perfused heart during reperfusion. The ischemia/reperfusion also induced increases in tissue sodium and calcium levels, decreases in potassium and magnesium ion contents and the release of creatine kinase and purine nucleosides and bases (ATP metabolites) from the heart, suggesting a pronounced change in cardiac transmembrane flux of ions, substrates and macromolecules. Treatment of the perfused heart with either 5 to 50 microM flecainide or 10 to 100 microM pilsicainide during preischemia resulted in diminishing the ...

Effects of antiarrhythmic drugs on HCN4 channel currents in HEK293 cells Effects of type Ia antiarrhythmic drugs, quinidine, disopyramide, and cibenzoline, on the HCN4 channel current were examined in HEK293 cells. Quinidine developed a simple reduction of the HCN4 channel current at a concentration of 30 uM. The assessed IC50 value of quinidine for inhibiting the HCN4 channel current purchase Celecoxib was 78. 3 uM, which was greater than the therapeutic concentration of quinidine. Cibenzoline and disopyramide also inhibited the HCN4 channel current weakly, with calculated IC50 values of 46. 249 and 8 uM, respectively, which were both more than the therapeutic concentrations. Ramifications of class Ib anti-arrhythmic medications, aprindine, and lidocaine, mexiletine, to the HCN4 channel current were also examined in HEK293 cells. Lidocaine at a concentration Organism of 30 uM inhibited the HCN4 channel current, specially at hyperpolarizing currents below 100 mV. The inhibitory effect of ...

Dear Members of the USDA Dietary Guidelines Committee:. I wrote to you eight years ago to thank you and all the previous committees for your tireless work on the USDAs dietary guidelines. As I explained back then, your guidelines and the federally approved school lunches based on them are giving my daughters a competitive advantage in life by causing other kids to become tired, experience difficulty concentrating in class, etc.. My prediction that my daughters would bypass most of their classmates is looking pretty good, by the way. My older daughter was recently selected to participate in a math competition. Only the top 50 math students from her high schools 900 freshmen and sophomores were invited. She ended up with the highest score among the 50.. Granted, her math abilities are largely genetic. But when I see her eating brain-building foods like fatty meats and eggs while so many of her classmates live on heart healthy vegetable oils, processed grains and other frankenfoods, I cant ...

At 5 years from diagnosis, the disease-free survival was 68.8 percent in the standard treatment group versus 77.6 percent in the maintenance group. The 5-year overall survival rates were 73.7 percent with standard therapy and 86.5 percent with maintenance therapy.. The most common side effect in the maintenance group was low blood cell count, though it was usually mild, Bisogno explained. Febrile neutropenia occurred in 25 percent of patients. Infection rates were much lower with maintenance treatment than after initial standard chemotherapy, and neurologic side effects resolved after treatment ended. Long-term side effects are still possible, and patients will continue to be monitored, he noted.. Maintenance treatment toxicity in comparison with standard treatment showed less anemia, neutropenia, and thrombocytopenia (fewer transfusions); fewer infection episodes; and no cardiac/hepatic/gastrointestinal/renal toxicity, said Bisogno.. The findings of this trial have already changed the ...
In 2013, renowned Boston Childrens Hospital pain researcher Clifford Woolf, MD, PhD, and Kai Johnsson, PhD, his fellow co-founder at Quartet Medicine, believed they held the key to non-narcotic pain relief. Woolf had shown that tetrahydrobioptrin - a protein also known as BH4 - is a primary natural modulator of neuropathic and inflammatory pain sensitivity. Quartet was founded on the premise that inhibiting BH4 production could prevent the progression of acute pain to chronic pain in millions of patients, without threat of addiction or tolerance.. With solid human genetic data and chemical biology, plus $17 million in series A funding, Quartet looked primed for success. But in the summer of 2017, toxicology studies of the companys lead candidate revealed neurologic side effects. Hope for the promising pain drug cratered, taking Quartet with it.. Now, however, a surprising discovery about BH4 will likely rekindle interest in the once-promising pathway and could have profound implications for ...

This page is meant as a simple repository where random code snippets as well as complex systems can easily be stored so that other users can get to them. This is not a substitute for a repository that is closely coupled with the Gambit systems module system (which is under development). It is meant to foster the sharing of code by making it extremely easy to publish code in a publicly accessible place. Sharing a piece of code that is incomplete, undocumented, and unreliable is better than not sharing it, because others can correct the deficiencies, learn from the code, or avoid the bugs. Hence the name Dumping Grounds for this page. The code need not follow a specific structure. It could simply be a Scheme source file (with a .scm extension). However, if you are packaging your code specifically for storing it here, it is best if the name of the package contains a revision number (so that many revisions can be stored) and is a gzip ...

CFA submitted the following comments to the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee. The comments urge the Committee to support an accurate, up-to-date depiction of the science linking alcohol and cancer in the next edition of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Drinking alcohol is the third most important cause of cancer that is within a persons control, behind smoking and obesity, and ahead of exposure to ultraviolet radiation. Most consumers in the United States, however, remain unaware of the link between alcohol use and cancer.. Past editions of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans may have contributed to the confusion by touting studies that purport to demonstrate cardiovascular and other health benefits from moderate alcohol consumption. Many of those studies, however, have not withstood scrutiny. By contrast, the scientific evidence linking alcohol consumption to cancer is well-established, and growing. Researchers have documented that as little as one drink per day contributes to a ...
Since the inception of the Canadian Cardiovascular Society heart failure (HF) guidelines in 2006, much has changed in the care for patients with HF. Over the past decade, the HF Guidelines Committee has published regular updates. However, because of the major changes that have occurred, the Guidelines Committee believes that a comprehensive reassessment of the HF management recommendations is presently needed, with a view to producing a full and complete set of updated guidelines. The primary and secondary Canadian Cardiovascular Society HF panel members as well as external experts have reviewed clinically relevant literature to provide guidance for the practicing clinician ...
The ESGE commissioned this guideline (chair J.v.H.) and appointed a guideline leader (M.v.L.), who invited the listed authors to participate in the project development. The key questions were prepared by the coordinating team (M.v.L. and V.R.) and were then approved by the other members. The coordinating team formed task force subgroups, each with its own leader, and divided the key topics among these task forces ( Appendix 1 s ; see online-only Supplementary Material). The process of developing the guideline included telephone conferences, meetings, and online and face-to-face discussions among the guideline committee members from July 2018 to June 2019. Searches were performed in MEDLINE, Embase, and Cochrane. Articles were selected through title and abstract screening, followed by full-text screening. The results of the search were presented to all members of the guideline committee and statements were created by consensus. Evidence levels and recommendation strengths were assessed using the ...
Chronic hepatitis B virus infection remains a global problem of staggering proportions. It is estimated that 350 million people worldwide are chronically infected with the hepatitis B virus (HBV) and sub-Saharan Africa remains a high prevalence region. Most carriers will not develop significant hepatic disease but 15 - 40 % will develop serious sequelae during their lifetime.
At the recent Swiss Re/The BMJ Food for Thought conference, the closing speakers tried to find some agreement on dietary fat guidelines. You can listen to the exchange between Professor Dariush Mozaffarian, Professor Salim Yusuf and Dr Fiona Godlee here.. Fiona started with: The point about saturated fat is: the evidence is now looking pretty good, but the guidance hasnt shifted… there doesnt seem to have been an enormous mea culpa from the scientific community that we got it so wrong. That does surprise me.. Salim replied: We got brainwashed by a very questionable study, called The Seven Countries Study, many years ago and it was ingrained in our DNA and generations of us were brought up with that… Somebody said that you need to wait for guidelines committees to die before you can change the guidelines committees!. Fiona then said: Maybe one outcome of this meeting would be for this meeting to say thats gone now, the science has changed. Am I right Salim? Am I right Dariush? It ...

NICE decides to Fully Update its guideline on ME/CFS! Following the stakeholder consultation, NICE have announced they will now commence a FULL REVIEW of the guideline for ME/CFS, effectively overturning previous expert advice not to update it.. The following has been taken from the NICE website, and was shared across social media:. Sir Andrew Dillon, NICE chief executive, said:. The strong message from stakeholders was that the continuing debate about the causes of this condition and the best approach to treatment argued for a review of the current guideline.. We will now recruit a guideline committee which will include people with the condition and their carers, the healthcare professionals who treat them and the organisations which commission that treatment. As with all the guidance we produce, we will also ensure that stakeholders have the opportunity to provide evidence and insights throughout the development of the guideline.. CFS/ME is a relatively common condition affecting around ...
Eat your 12 to 15 servings of carbohydrate per day (a great source of energy!), then beat down your blood sugar with more insulin. Thats how dietitians are trained to think. When Charevas father was in the hospital for surgery some months back, he was of course given meals approved by the staff dietitian. For breakfast, he was served pancakes with maple syrup … but no butter on those pancakes, because butter will kill ya, doncha know.. These registered imbeciles believe that if you shoot enough insulin to beat your blood sugar down to the normal range, it means youre okay now - same as if you kept your blood sugar in the normal range by cutting back on the carbs instead.. No. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, damnit, its not the same..

Recommendation: American Diabetes Association recommends a hemoglobin A1c level of less than 7.0%, preprandial glucose values of 70 to 130 mg/dL (3.9-7.2 mmol/L), and 1- to 2-hour postprandial glucose values of less than 180 mg/dL (10 mmol/L). However, American College of Physicians recommends less intensive glucose control in most cases of type 2 diabetes, saying that targeting A1c levels below 7% may increase risk for death, weight gain, hypoglycemia, and other adverse effects., Optional/applicable conditions: Diabetes, References: 1.

Why this is important The guideline committee noted the lack of evidence on the diagnosis of active TB in children. The disease manifests differently in children than in adults, and more evidence would have been useful to the committee. Cross-sectional studies are needed to examine the relative accuracy of different tests, and the most appropriate specimen type for these tests, compared with tests currently in use. In particular, the poor accuracy of many tests in children means that diagnostic strategies - that is, combinations of tests - should be investigated, including both tests with high sensitivity and tests based on host response. ...

After a nearly-transient childhood, Micheal hitchhiked across the country and ran out of money in Arizona. So he stayed there for thirty years, raising dogs, getting a degree in Philosophy, and founding a scientific instrument company. Having read virtually everything by the old Masters of SF&F, he decided he was ready to write. A decade later, with a little help from the Critters online critique group, he was actually ready. He was relieved to find that writing novels is easier than writing software, as a single punctuation error wont cause your audience to explode and die. When he ran out of dogs, he moved to Australia to raise his daughter with her cousins. Now he is a father, author, and immigrant. Fitzgerald was wrong. There are second acts to some American lives, even if they start in other countries ...

But hike the price of one drug by 5,500% and suddenly all of America thinks you are satan incarnate.

The cost of releasing a new drug on the market has increased rapidly in the last decade. The reasons for this increase vary with the drug, but the need to make correct decisions earlier in the drug development process and to maximize the information gained throughout the process is evident.. Optimal experimental design (OD) describes the procedure of maximizing relevant information in drug development and drug treatment processes. While various optimization criteria can be considered in OD, the most common is to optimize the unknown model parameters for an upcoming study. To date, OD has mainly been used to optimize the independent variables, e.g. sample times, but it can be used for any design variable in a study.. This thesis addresses the OD of multiple continuous or discrete design variables for nonlinear mixed effects models. The methodology for optimizing and the optimization of different types of models with either continuous or discrete data are presented and the benefits of OD for such ...
Schizophrenia is a serious and disabling psychiatric disorder affecting approximately 1% of the worlds population, with its economic cost in the United States alone estimated to exceed that of all cancers combined. The new generation of atypical antipsychotics introduced over the past decade have comparable or greater efficacy than traditional antipsychotics in treating the psychotic symptoms of schizophrenia and a much improved neurologic side effect profile. Quetiapine, the fourth atypical antipsychotic marketed in the United States, was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in September 1997 and is also currently approved in over 70 countries worldwide for the treatment of psychosis associated with schizophrenia. This article will review the clinical trials examining the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of quetiapine in the treatment of patients with schizophrenia.

Title: Cardio-Vascular Risks Associated with Clozapine Treatment. VOLUME: 7 ISSUE: 3. Author(s):Carlo Rostagno, Francesca Pastorelli, Sandro Domenichetti and Gian Franco Gensini. Affiliation:Dipartimento Area Critica Medico Chirurgica - Universita di Firenze, Viale Morgagni 85, 50134 - Firenze, Italy.. Keywords:Tumor Necrosis Factor, metabolic syndrome, Myocarditis, cardiomyopathy, necroscopy, corticosteroids, sarcoplasmatic, Drug resistant schizophrenia, clozapine, cardiotoxicity, dilated cardiomyopathy, PHARMACOLOGY, pericarditis, antipsychotics. Abstract: Clozapine has a lower incidence of neurologic side effects, in particular extrapyramidal symptoms and is associated with a decreased mortality, largely due to a significant reduction in the risk of suicide, in comparison to firstgeneration antipsychotics. Favourable clinical results however are faced with a not negligible risk of serious adverse effects in particular agranulocytosis, weight gain or metabolic syndrome. Dilated cardiomyopathy, ...
The concept that atrial fibrillation begets atrial fibrillation might have some important clinical implications. First of all it emphasizes that most of our electrophysiological knowledge stems from acute experiments and that we know relatively little about chronic electrophysiological adaptation processes. If it is true that the long-term shortening of atrial refractoriness during fibrillation is based on a fundamental change in composition of the ion channels responsible for repolarization of the atrial cells, the action of antiarrhythmic drugs on fibrillating atria may be different than the effects as measured during sinus rhythm. The clinically observed diminished efficacy of chemical cardioversion after a prolonged period of atrial fibrillation9 10 11 12 might be explained by such a process of electrical remodeling. In fact it might be imperative to reevaluate the effects of existing anti-fibrillatory drugs in chronically fibrillating hearts. On the other hand it opens the possibility to ...

Topic summary contributed by volunteer(s): Linda The U.S. federal dietary guidelines have been challenged by the salt, sugar, dairy, egg, and meat industries since the release of the first recommendations in 1977. These fights continue today with the recent sugar industry attack on the WHOs recommendation to limit the intake of added sugars, the egg industry fight against the American Heart Associations recommendation to consume less eggs for heart health, and the meat industry prevention of any discussion on the scientific research for the health consequences of eating meat during the creation of the 2010 dietary guidelines. Food industries have even funded an analysis of misleadng studies in an attempt to prove that there is no significant evidence of health risk from saturated fat.. Some findings have been widely adopted by the guidelines committee such as the fact that dry peas, lentils, chickpeas, and beans are excellent for optimizing diabetes control. In general, the latest U.S. ...
ISSUES IN RESEARCH. The SAPIT trial provides essential evidence on risks and benefits of integrated and sequential treatment of HIV and tuberculosis. Quarraisha Abdool Karim; Salim S Abdool Karim; Cheryl Baxter; Gerald Friedland; Tanuja Gengiah; Andrew Gray; Anneke Grobler; Kogieleum Naidoo; Nesri Padayatchi; Wafaa El-Sadr. Boulle et al.1 queried whether a clinical trial was needed to provide the evidence for the mortality benefits of antiretroviral therapy (ART) initiation during tuberculosis (TB) treatment. While several experts, including foremost TB-HIV scientists from South Africa2 and the USA,3 senior World Health Organization (WHO)4 and UNAIDS5 officials at the time the study was initiated, the 2003 WHO AIDS Treatment Guidelines Committee Chair3, the Chair of the Ethics Committee6 and the researchers,7 have previously addressed the points raised, the SAPIT (Starting Antiretroviral Therapy at Three Points in Tuberculosis) research team welcomes the opportunity also to address the comments. ...
Clearly there is a need to figure out who is a greater risk in this geriatric population. These types of falls cause significant morbidity/mortality, cost a lot of money, and we simply lack the resources to treat every older adult as high-risk for future falls.. Risk assessment in aging adults is advocated by multiple professional organizations and licensing bodies. Nonetheless, geriatric patients rarely receive guideline directed care for falls following an episode of ED care.. Multiple barriers exist between contemporary ED management of community-dwelling senior citizens and optimal injurious falls prevention. The first and most prominent obstacle is the lack of ED-validated risk stratification instruments to distinguish low-risk from non-low-risk for falls. If we cannot identify the at-risk, how can we efficiently and cost-effectively proactively work to prevent future falls? Funding agencies need to recognize this conundrum, too.. There are some non-EM guidelines committees and prominent ...

Population pharmacokinetic data, adjusted for patient characteristics, are recommended for the design of initial dosage regimens of some therapeutically monitored drugs in patients for whom patient-specific data are not available. However, despite widespread use by clinicians such as pharmacists, a clear understanding of the principles of population pharmacokinetics, including data collection and analysis and its limitations, is often lacking. This article describes the 2 main methods of obtaining population kinetic data, namely the two-stage method and nonlinear mixed effect model, and their applications to the pharmacokinetic-based design of dosage regimens. Additionally, some numerical examples are provided to assist the reader in understanding the material. The author uses these tools in a pharmacokinetics course taught to PharmD students.

From Horizons no. 108 March 2016)​​​. Over the past two decades, China has lived through the most impressive science boom in modern history. What was once a scientific backwater is now the worlds second ranking nation by the number of scientific papers published. It is even poised to snatch the top spot from the United States. Furthermore, all those papers, especially in such fields as physics, chemistry and genomics, are increasingly appearing in top-tier journals. It is not just publications. China has also sent a probe to the Moon and more recently launched a satellite that may give it the edge in the global quest to identify dark matter. China, it seems, is ready to compete at the forefront in most fields of science and technology. The boom has been driven by the determined efforts to reclaim the Chinese brains cultivated abroad. The 1000 Talents programme, launched in 2008, has been the most successful of these efforts. It has a number of components, including a salary and housing ...

Brewers 4, Cubs 3: Despite all of the early-season pub, and despite last nights blowout, Im fairly certain that the Brewers arent going to go away all season. Kerry Wood blew yet another save -- this one of those two-run-lead-in-the-ninth varieties -- wasting a strong performance from Carlos Zambrano (6.1 IP, 1 ER). In other news, the Alfonso Soriano-in-the-leadoff-spot gambit didnt work, as he went 0-4. The guy I would put there -- Fukudome -- was 4-4. The guys batting second and third -- Theroit and Lee -- were a combined 4-8 with zero RBI. Something tells me that the Cubs would have had an extra run or two if the batting order were filp-flopped. After a pretty miserable start, Ryan Braun (3-5, 2B, HR, 3 RBI) has been heating up lately ...
As House GOP leaders scrambled to whip votes on a border supplemental bill Thursday, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., called the closing hours before the August recess a mess on the House floor..

They do not have money to feed the children, help the American people, but they want a blank check to sue the president, Pelosi said at her Thursday news conference. Theyve lost moral standing in whats happening on the border, and they have no standing in suing the president..

At the turn of the century, in the year 2000 or so, I started to learn HTML and made my first websites to support my teaching. On a lark, I took an old analysis I had written up of the Urusov Gambit (which had been published my freshman year of college in The Castled King, which later became The Atlantic Chess News) and put it up on the web. It was just a long page of text with some links. But it was still much deeper analysis than anything else I had seen in print. I remember thinking that someone might stumble across it and wed correspond.. Well, someone did--and pretty quickly too. A player named Max Burkett from Montana was using the line in correspondence and had put together an extensive games database for the Pitt Chess Archive. He came across my site and we began corresponding by email. He told me about his database and urged me to expand my analysis in light of those games. He also told me to get a copy of Fritz and use it to help me analyze more deeply. It took me a year or two to ...

... is a member of the sodium channel blocking class of antiepileptic drugs.[60] This may suppress the release of glutamate and aspartate, two of the dominant excitatory neurotransmitters in the CNS.[61] It is generally accepted to be a member of the sodium channel blocking class of antiepileptic drugs,[62] but it could have additional actions since it has a broader spectrum of action than other sodium channel antiepileptic drugs such as phenytoin and is effective in the treatment of the depressed phase of bipolar disorder, whereas other sodium channel blocking antiepileptic drugs are not, possibly on account of its sigma receptor activity. In addition, lamotrigine shares few side-effects with other, unrelated anticonvulsants known to inhibit sodium channels, which further emphasises its unique properties.[63] It is a triazine derivate that inhibits voltage-sensitive sodium channels, leading to stabilization of neuronal membranes. It also blocks L-, N-, and P-type calcium channels and ...
The hormone prolactin stimulates lactation (production of breast milk). Dopamine, released by the hypothalamus stops the release of prolactin from the pituitary gland. Domperidone, by acting as an anti-dopaminergic agent, results in increased prolactin secretion, and thus promotes lactation (that is, it is a galactogogue). In some nations, including Australia, domperidone is used off-label, based on uncertain and anecdotal evidence of its usefulness, as a therapy for mothers who are having difficulty breastfeeding.[24][25] In the United States, domperidone is not approved for this or any other use.[26][27] A study called the EMPOWER trial was designed to assess the effectiveness and safety of domperidone in assisting mothers of preterm babies to supply breast milk for their infants.[28] The study randomized 90 mothers of preterm babies to receive either domperidone 10 mg orally three times daily for 28 days (Group A) or placebo 10 mg orally three times daily for 14 days followed by domperidone ...
... (DHP) is a molecule based upon pyridine, and the parent of a class of molecules that have been semi-saturated with two substituents replacing one double bond. They are particularly well known in pharmacology as L-type calcium channel blockers, used in the treatment of hypertension. Compared with certain other L-type calcium channel blockers (for example those of the phenylalkylamine class such as verapamil) that have significant action at the heart, they are relatively vascular selective in their mechanism of action in lowering blood pressure. ...

... (CBZ), sold under the trade name Tegretol among others, is an anticonvulsant medication used primarily in the treatment of epilepsy and neuropathic pain.[1] It is not effective for absence or myoclonic seizures.[1] It is used in schizophrenia along with other medications and as a second-line agent in bipolar disorder.[3][1] Carbamazepine appears to work as well as phenytoin and valproate for focal and generalised seizures.[4] Common side effects include nausea and drowsiness.[1] Serious side effects may include skin rashes, decreased bone marrow function, suicidal thoughts, or confusion.[1] It should not be used in those with a history of bone marrow problems.[1] Use during pregnancy may cause harm to the baby; however, stopping the medication in pregnant women with seizures is not recommended.[1] Its use during breastfeeding is not recommended.[1] Care should be taken in those with either kidney or liver problems.[1] Carbamazepine was discovered in 1953 by Swiss chemist Walter ...
A channel that is "inwardly-rectifying" is one that passes current (positive charge) more easily in the inward direction (into the cell) than in the outward direction (out of the cell). It is thought that this current may play an important role in regulating neuronal activity, by helping to stabilize the resting membrane potential of the cell. By convention, inward current (positive charge moving into the cell) is displayed in voltage clamp as a downward deflection, while an outward current (positive charge moving out of the cell) is shown as an upward deflection. At membrane potentials negative to potassium's reversal potential, inwardly rectifying K+ channels support the flow of positively charged K+ ions into the cell, pushing the membrane potential back to the resting potential. This can be seen in figure 1: when the membrane potential is clamped negative to the channel's resting potential (e.g. -60 mV), inward current flows (i.e. positive charge flows into the cell). However, when the ...
... also binds to and blocks α2δ subunit-containing VDCCs, similarly to gabapentin and pregabalin, and hence is a gabapentinoid.[9][16] Both (R)-phenibut and (S)-phenibut display this action with similar affinity (Ki = 23 and 39 μM, respectively).[9] Moreover, (R)-phenibut possesses 4-fold greater affinity for this site than for the GABAB receptor (Ki = 92 μM), while (S)-phenibut does not bind significantly to the GABAB receptor (Ki , 1 mM).[9] As such, based on the results of this study, phenibut would appear to have much greater potency in its interactions with α2δ subunit-containing VDCCs than with the GABAB receptor (between 5- to 10-fold).[9] For this reason, the actions of phenibut as a α2δ subunit-containing voltage-gated calcium channel blocker or gabapentinoid may be its true primary mechanism of action, and this may explain the differences between phenibut and its close relative baclofen (which, in contrast, has essentially insignificant activity as a gabapentinoid; Ki = 6 ...

... (marketed as Depamide by Sanofi-Aventis) is a carboxamide derivative of valproic acid used in the treatment of epilepsy and some affective disorders. It is rapidly metabolised (80%) to valproic acid (another anticonvulsant) but has anticonvulsant properties itself. It may produce more stable plasma levels than valproic acid or sodium valproate and may be more effective at preventing febrile seizures. However, it is over one hundred times more potent as an inhibitor of liver microsomal epoxide hydrolase. This makes it incompatible with carbamazepine and can affect the ability of the body to remove other toxins. Valpromide is no safer during pregnancy than valproic acid. Valpromide is formed through the reaction of valproic acid and ammonia via an intermediate acid chloride. In pure form, valpromide is a white crystalline powder and has melting point 125-126 °C. It is practically insoluble in water but soluble in hot water. It is available on the market in some European countries. ...
Class Ib antiarrhythmic agents are sodium channel blockers. They have fast onset and offset kinetics, meaning that they have little or no effect at slower heart rates, and more effects at faster heart rates. Class Ib agents shorten the action potential duration and reduce refractoriness. These agents will decrease Vmax in partially depolarized cells with fast response action potentials. They either do not change the action potential duration, or they may decrease the action potential duration. Class Ib drugs tend to be more specific for voltage gated Na channels than Ia. Lidocaine in particular is highly frequency dependent, in that it has more activity with increasing heart rates. This is because lidocaine selectively blocks Na channels in their open and inactive states and has little binding capability in the resting state. Class Ib agents are indicated for the treatment of ventricular tachycardia and symptomatic premature ventricular beats, and prevention of ventricular fibrillation. Class Ib ...
... has anticonvulsive properties, attenuating vascular smooth muscle contraction through interactions with voltage-dependent Na+ and Ca2+ channels.[1] How this effect is mediated and to what extent this mechanism is involved in the anxiolytic and analgesic effects of kavalactones on the central nervous system is unknown. Kavain's pharmacological activities have not been sufficiently investigated, and neither its effect as a serotonin reuptake inhibitor nor its monoamine (norepinephrine) uptake inhibitions and activation of NMDA receptors have been confirmed. The mechanism behind the psychotropic, sedative, and anxiolytic actions of kavain and related kavalactones is still debated. Direct binding to the benzodiazepine/flumazenil binding site of the GABA-A receptor does not occur with kavain enantiomers.[2] Many studies involved kava extracts from different plant parts and are, therefore, not applicable to kavain itself. In 2016, kavain was shown to bind at the α4β2δ GABAA receptor and ...
It is on the WHO Model List of Essential Medicines, the most important medications needed in a basic health system.[4] Magnesium sulfate is a common mineral pharmaceutical preparation of magnesium, commonly known as Epsom salt, used both externally and internally. Magnesium sulfate is highly water-soluble and solubility is inhibited with lipids typically used in lotions. Lotions often employ the use of emulsions or suspensions to include both oil and water-soluble ingredients. Hence, magnesium sulfate in a lotion may not be as freely available to migrate to the skin nor to be absorbed through the skin, hence both studies may properly suggest absorption or lack thereof as a function of the carrier (in a water solution vs. in an oil emulsion/suspension). Temperature and concentration gradients may also be contributing factors to absorption.[5] Externally, magnesium sulfate paste is used to treat skin inflammations such as small boils or localised infections. Known in the UK as 'drawing paste' it ...
... has a potential for drug interactions; caution should be used in combining other medicines with it, including other antiepileptics and mood stabilizers.[12] Lower levels of carbamazepine are seen when administrated with phenobarbital, phenytoin, or primidone, which can result in breakthrough seizure activity. Carbamazepine, as a CYP450 inducer, may increase clearance of many drugs, decreasing their concentration in the blood to subtherapeutic levels and reducing their desired effects.[19] Drugs that are more rapidly metabolized with carbamazepine include warfarin, lamotrigine, phenytoin, theophylline, and valproic acid.[12] Drugs that decrease the metabolism of carbamazepine or otherwise increase its levels include erythromycin,[20] cimetidine, propoxyphene, and calcium channel blockers.[12] Carbamazepine also increases the metabolism of the hormones in birth control pills and can reduce their effectiveness, potentially leading to unexpected pregnancies.[12] As a drug that induces ...
... occludes the pore of calcium-activated voltage-gated shaker K+ channels by binding to one of four independent, overlapping binding sites.[6][7] It binds both to the open and the closed states. In addition, the block is enhanced as the ionic strength is lowered.[8] This block occurs as the Asn 30 on the CTX interacts with the Asp 381 on the K+ channel.[9] The blockade of K+ channels by the charybdotoxin peptide causes neuronal hyperexcitability. Mutations of the Lys31Gln and the Asn30Gln had the effect of lessening the CTX block of the pore on the shaker channel.[9] ...
... selectively binds to sulfonylurea receptors (SUR-1) on the surface of the pancreatic beta-cells. It was shown to provide cardiovascular protection as it does not bind to sulfonylurea receptors (SUR-2A) in the heart.[10] This binding effectively closes these K+ ion channels. This decreases the efflux of potassium from the cell which leads to the depolarization of the cell. This causes voltage dependent Ca2+ ion channels to open increasing the Ca2+ influx. The calcium can then bind to and activate calmodulin which in turn leads to exocytosis of insulin vesicles leading to insulin release.[citation needed] The mouse model of MODY diabetes suggested that the reduced gliclazide clearance stands behind their therapeutic success in human MODY patients, but Urbanova et al. found that human MODY patients respond differently and that there was no consistent decrease in gliclazide clearance in randomly selected HNF1A-MODY and HNF4A-MODY patients.[11] Its classification has been ambiguous, as ...
... has several uses including the treatment of abnormal heart rhythms or arrhythmias, chronic pain, and myotonia. In general when treating arrhythmias, mexiletine is reserved for use in dangerous heart rhythm disturbances such as ventricular tachycardia.[2] It is of particular use when treating arrhythmias caused by long QT syndrome.[3] The LQT3 form of long QT syndrome is amenable to treatment with mexiletine as this form is caused by defective sodium channels that continue to release a sustained current rather than fully inactivating, however other forms of long QT syndrome can also be treated with this medication.[3] Mexiletine has been used to treat chronic pain and may also be used to treat muscle stiffness resulting from myotonic dystrophy (Steinert's disease) or nondystrophic myotonias such as myotonia congenita (Thomsen syndrome or Becker syndrome).[4][5] ...
... is available as a generic medication and usually not too expensive.[7] Wholesale it costs between US$0.003 and US$0.15 per dose.[8] A month of treatment is about US$30 in the United States.[2] Since September 2012, the marketing licence in the UK has been held by Flynn Pharma Ltd, of Dublin, Ireland, and the product, although identical, has been called Phenytoin Sodium xxmg Flynn Hard Capsules. (The xxmg in the name refers to the strength-for example "Phenytoin sodium 25 mg Flynn Hard Capsules").[49] The capsules are still made by Pfizer's Goedecke subsidiary's plant in Freiburg, Germany and they still have Epanutin printed on them.[50] After Pfizer's sale of the UK marketing licence to Flynn Pharma, the price of a 28-pack of 25 mg phenytoin sodium capsules marked Epanutin rose from 66p (about $0.88) to £15.74 (about $25.06). Capsules of other strengths also went up in price by the same factor-2384%,[51] costing the UK's National Health Service an extra £43 million (about $68.44 ...
... is effective for prevention of shivering during surgery or recovery from surgery.[5][6] Nefopam was significantly more effective than aspirin as an analgesic in one clinical trial,[7] although with a greater incidence of side effects such as sweating, dizziness and nausea, especially at higher doses.[8][9] The estimated relative potency of nefopam to morphine indicates that 20 mg of nefopam HCl is the approximate analgesic equal of 12 mg of morphine with comparable analgesic efficacy to morphine,[10][11][12] or oxycodone,[13] while Nefopam tends to produce fewer side effects, does not produce respiratory depression,[14] and has much less abuse potential, and so is useful either as an alternative to opioids, or as an adjunctive treatment for use alongside opioid(s) or other analgesics.[12][15] Nefopam is also used to treat severe hiccups.[16] ...
