A cardiotonic glycoside obtained mainly from Digitalis lanata; it consists of three sugars and the aglycone DIGOXIGENIN. Digoxin has positive inotropic and negative chronotropic activity. It is used to control ventricular rate in ATRIAL FIBRILLATION and in the management of congestive heart failure with atrial fibrillation. Its use in congestive heart failure and sinus rhythm is less certain. The margin between toxic and therapeutic doses is small. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p666)
A cardiac glycoside sometimes used in place of DIGOXIN. It has a longer half-life than digoxin; toxic effects, which are similar to those of digoxin, are longer lasting. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p665)
C(23)-steroids with methyl groups at C-10 and C-13 and a five-membered lactone at C-17. They are aglycone constituents of CARDIAC GLYCOSIDES and must have at least one double bond in the molecule. The class includes cardadienolides and cardatrienolides. Members include DIGITOXIN and DIGOXIN and their derivatives and the STROPHANTHINS.
Agents that have a strengthening effect on the heart or that can increase cardiac output. They may be CARDIAC GLYCOSIDES; SYMPATHOMIMETICS; or other drugs. They are used after MYOCARDIAL INFARCT; CARDIAC SURGICAL PROCEDURES; in SHOCK; or in congestive heart failure (HEART FAILURE).
Cyclopentanophenanthrenes with a 5- or 6-membered lactone ring attached at the 17-position and SUGARS attached at the 3-position. Plants they come from have long been used in congestive heart failure. They increase the force of cardiac contraction without significantly affecting other parameters, but are very toxic at larger doses. Their mechanism of action usually involves inhibition of the NA(+)-K(+)-EXCHANGING ATPASE and they are often used in cell biological studies for that purpose.
A semisynthetic digitalis glycoside with the general properties of DIGOXIN but more rapid onset of action. Its cardiotonic action is prolonged by its demethylation to DIGOXIN in the liver. It has been used in the treatment of congestive heart failure (HEART FAILURE).

Glycosides from plants of the genus DIGITALIS. Some of these are useful as cardiotonic and anti-arrhythmia agents. Included also are semi-synthetic derivatives of the naturally occurring glycosides. The term has sometimes been used more broadly to include all CARDIAC GLYCOSIDES, but here is restricted to those related to Digitalis.
Agents used for the treatment or prevention of cardiac arrhythmias. They may affect the polarization-repolarization phase of the action potential, its excitability or refractoriness, or impulse conduction or membrane responsiveness within cardiac fibers. Anti-arrhythmia agents are often classed into four main groups according to their mechanism of action: sodium channel blockade, beta-adrenergic blockade, repolarization prolongation, or calcium channel blockade.
The action of a drug that may affect the activity, metabolism, or toxicity of another drug.
A cardioactive glycoside consisting of rhamnose and ouabagenin, obtained from the seeds of Strophanthus gratus and other plants of the Apocynaceae; used like DIGITALIS. It is commonly used in cell biological studies as an inhibitor of the NA(+)-K(+)-EXCHANGING ATPASE.
Classic quantitative assay for detection of antigen-antibody reactions using a radioactively labeled substance (radioligand) either directly or indirectly to measure the binding of the unlabeled substance to a specific antibody or other receptor system. Non-immunogenic substances (e.g., haptens) can be measured if coupled to larger carrier proteins (e.g., bovine gamma-globulin or human serum albumin) capable of inducing antibody formation.
A 170-kDa transmembrane glycoprotein from the superfamily of ATP-BINDING CASSETTE TRANSPORTERS. It serves as an ATP-dependent efflux pump for a variety of chemicals, including many ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENTS. Overexpression of this glycoprotein is associated with multidrug resistance (see DRUG RESISTANCE, MULTIPLE).
A heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.

Myocardial uptake of digoxin in chronically digitalized dogs. (1/952)

1 The time course of myocardial uptake of digoxin, increase in contractility and changes in myocardial potassium concentration was studied for 90 min following an intravenous digoxin dose to long-term digitalized dogs. 2 Nineteen dogs were investigated by the use of a biopsy technique which allowed sampling before and after administration of digoxin. 3 Ten minutes after administration of digoxin the myocardial concentration increased from 60 to 306 nmol/kg tissue, the myocardial concentration of digoxin was significantly lower (250 nmol/kg tissue) after 30 min and then increased again. 4 The transmural myocardial distribution of digoxin was uniform before and 90 min after administration of digoxin in long-term digitalized dogs but at 10 min after administration, both the subepicardial and the subendocardial concentration of digoxin were significantly lower than that of the mesocardial layer. 5 During the first 10 min the dp/dtmax increased to 135% of the control level. The increase remained unchanged during the rest of the study. 6 Myocardial potassium decreased throughout the study. 7 The M-configuration of the myocardial uptake curve and the non-uniformity of myocardial distribution of digoxin observed at 10 min after administrating digoxin to long-term digitalized dogs indicate that the distribution of myocardial blood flow may be changed during chronic digitalization.  (+info)

Fetal tachycardias: management and outcome of 127 consecutive cases. (2/952)

OBJECTIVE: To review the management and outcome of fetal tachycardia, and to determine the problems encountered with various treatment protocols. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective analysis. SUBJECTS: 127 consecutive fetuses with a tachycardia presenting between 1980 and 1996 to a single tertiary centre for fetal cardiology. The median gestational age at presentation was 32 weeks (range 18 to 42). RESULTS: 105 fetuses had a supraventricular tachycardia and 22 had atrial flutter. Overall, 52 fetuses were hydropic and 75 non-hydropic. Prenatal control of the tachycardia was achieved in 83% of treated non-hydropic fetuses compared with 66% of the treated hydropic fetuses. Digoxin monotherapy converted most (62%) of the treated non-hydropic fetuses, and 96% survived through the neonatal period. First line drug treatment for hydropic fetuses was more diverse, including digoxin (n = 5), digoxin plus verapamil (n = 14), and flecainide (n = 27). The response rates to these drugs were 20%, 57%, and 59%, respectively, confirming that digoxin monotherapy is a poor choice for the hydropic fetus. Response to flecainide was faster than to the other drugs. Direct fetal treatment was used in four fetuses, of whom two survived. Overall, 73% (n = 38) of the hydropic fetuses survived. Postnatally, 4% of the non-hydropic group had ECG evidence of pre-excitation, compared with 16% of the hydropic group; 57% of non-hydropic fetuses were treated with long term anti-arrhythmics compared with 79% of hydropic fetuses. CONCLUSIONS: Non-hydropic fetuses with tachycardias have a very good prognosis with transplacental treatment. Most arrhythmias associated with fetal hydrops can be controlled with transplacental treatment, but the mortality in this group is 27%. At present, there is no ideal treatment protocol for these fetuses and a large prospective multicentre trial is required to optimise treatment of both hydropic and non-hydropic fetuses.  (+info)

Ventriculo-atrial time interval measured on M mode echocardiography: a determining element in diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of fetal supraventricular tachycardia. (3/952)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether M mode echocardiography can differentiate fetal supraventricular tachycardia according to the ventriculo-atrial (VA) time interval, and if the resulting division into short and long VA intervals holds any relation with clinical presentation, management, and fetal outcome. DESIGN: Retrospective case series. SUBJECTS: 23 fetuses with supraventricular tachycardia. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: A systematic review of the M mode echocardiograms (for VA and atrioventricular (AV) interval measurements), clinical profile, and final outcome. RESULTS: 19 fetuses (82.6%) had supraventricular tachycardia of the short VA type (mean (SD) VA/AV ratio 0.34 (0.16); heart rate 231 (29) beats/min). Tachycardia was sustained in six and intermittent in 13. Hydrops was present in three (15.7%). Digoxin, the first drug given in 14, failed to control tachycardia in five. Three of these then received sotalol and converted to sinus rhythm. All fetuses of this group survived. Postnatally, supraventricular tachycardia recurred in three, two having Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome. Four fetuses (17.4%) had long VA tachycardia (VA/AV ratio 3.89 (0.82); heart rate 226 (10) beats/min). Initial treatment with digoxin was ineffective in all, but sotalol was effective in two. Heart failure caused fetal death in one and premature delivery in one. All three surviving fetuses had recurrences of supraventricular tachycardia after birth: two had the permanent form of junctional reciprocating tachycardia and one had atrial ectopic tachycardia. CONCLUSIONS: Careful measurement of ventriculo-atrial intervals on fetal M mode echocardiography can be used to distinguish short from long VA supraventricular tachycardia and may be helpful in optimising management. Digoxin, when indicated, may remain the drug of choice in the short VA type but appears ineffective in the long VA type.  (+info)

Common variant in AMPD1 gene predicts improved clinical outcome in patients with heart failure. (4/952)

BACKGROUND: This study was undertaken to identify gene(s) that may be associated with improved clinical outcome in patients with congestive heart failure (CHF). The adenosine monophosphate deaminase locus (AMPD1) was selected for study. We hypothesized that inheritance of the mutant AMPD1 allele is associated with increased probability of survival without cardiac transplantation in patients with CHF. METHODS AND RESULTS: AMPD1 genotype was determined in 132 patients with advanced CHF and 91 control reference subjects by use of a polymerase chain reaction-based, allele-specific oligonucleotide detection assay. In patients with CHF, those heterozygous (n=20) or homozygous (n=1) for the mutant AMPD1 allele (AMPD1 +/- or -/-, respectively) experienced a significantly longer duration of heart failure symptoms before referral for transplantation evaluation than CHF patients homozygous for the wild-type allele (AMPD1 +/+; n=111; 7.6+/-6.5 versus 3.2+/-3.6 years; P<0.001). The OR of surviving without cardiac transplantation >/=5 years after initial hospitalization for CHF symptoms was 8.6 times greater (95% CI: 3.05, 23.87) in those patients carrying >/=1 mutant AMPD1 allele than in those carrying 2 wild-type AMPD1 +/+ alleles. CONCLUSIONS: After the onset of CHF symptoms, the mutant AMPD1 allele is associated with prolonged probability of survival without cardiac transplantation. The mechanism by which the presence of the mutant AMPD1 allele may modify the clinical phenotype of heart failure remains to be determined.  (+info)

Penetration of digoxin into cerebrospinal fluid. (5/952)

The concentration of digoxin in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of ten patients receiving conventional oral doses of this cardiac glycoside has been measured by a radioimmunoassay technique. Digoxin was undetected in eight patients and barely detectable in two, suggesting the presence of a significant blood-CSF barrier for digoxin. The implication of these findings is discussed.  (+info)

Clinical practice guidelines for heart failure. (6/952)

Development of guidelines can be a difficult process; each organization or institution must establish the rules and criteria for including specific therapies and the level of complexity needed. Specific outcomes must be incorporated, including maintenance of comfort and functionality, freedom from hospitalization, and survival. In existing guidelines for the management of heart failure, angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor therapy is clearly the gold standard. However, there is still a high mortality with ACE inhibitor therapy; the key may be choosing the right patients. Current guidelines reflect the uncertainty regarding digoxin before the Digitalis Investigation Group (DIG) trial; obviously, these guidelines should be revisited. Clinical practice guidelines for the management of heart failure need to be revised to include a better consensus on beta-blockade, the new data on digoxin, emerging data on angiotensin II receptor antagonists, and current thinking on anticoagulant therapy.  (+info)

Cost of heart failure to the healthcare system. (7/952)

From an economic, mortality, and functional standpoint, heart failure is clearly a disease that needs to be targeted. We can develop a model for heart failure to determine the impact that specific management strategies will have on the overall cost to the system, which by itself can tell us some interesting things because we're currently spending twice as much on transplantation as on digoxin therapy. We can then use this model to assess the impact of different strategies, such as greater use of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors or digoxin therapy.  (+info)

The effect of steady-state ropinirole on plasma concentrations of digoxin in patients with Parkinson's disease. (8/952)

AIMS: The aim of this single-blind study was to assess the effect of ropinirole, a novel treatment for Parkinson's disease, on the steady-state pharmacokinetics and safety of digoxin in 10 patients with Parkinson's disease. METHODS: There were three parts to the study: digoxin once daily plus placebo three times daily for 1 week; digoxin once daily plus ropinirole three times daily for 6 weeks; and digoxin once daily plus placebo three times daily for 1 week. Serial blood samples were collected over 24 h at the end of each part of the study for pharmacokinetic assessment. Pre-dose blood samples were collected on specific days throughout the study to assess the attainment of steady-state plasma levels of digoxin. The primary endpoints were AUC(0, tau) and Cmax for digoxin. RESULTS: There was a mean decrease of 10% in digoxin AUC (0, tau) (90% CI: 0.79, 1.01) and a 25% decrease in digoxin Cmax (90% CI: 0.58, 0.97) when ropinirole was co-administered, compared with digoxin alone Cmin plasma values for digoxin, however, were fairly constant throughout the study (point estimates 0.99, 95% CI: 0.85, 1.15). Changes in trough levels of digoxin are believed to be the most reliable way of assessing steady-state concentrations of digoxin, and therefore the clinical significance of an interaction. Changes in Cmax are too readily influenced by other factors. CONCLUSIONS: These results therefore indicate that on pharmacokinetic grounds no dose adjustment is necessary for digoxin co-administered with ropinirole.  (+info)

Our retrospective analysis of patients from the DIG trial demonstrates that the clinical effects of digoxin in women, as in men, are significantly influenced by serum concentration, with divergent outcomes relative to placebo at low versus high concentrations. Specifically, there was no evidence that digoxin increased mortality in women at low serum concentrations by any of our analytical approaches. The point estimate for the relative risk of death on digoxin versus placebo was below unity for women at detectable serum concentrations ,1 ng/ml. In addition, digoxin substantially reduced the risk of hospital stay for worsening HF and the risk of the combined end point of mortality and HF hospital stay in women at low SDCs (0.5 to 0.9 ng/ml). In contrast, the risk for mortality was greater than placebo when serum concentrations were ≥1.2 ng/ml, and there was no reduction in the risk of the combined end point at higher serum concentrations. Our study cannot define the mechanisms responsible for ...

In some patients, orally administered digoxin is converted to inactive reduction products (e.g., dihydrodigoxin) by colonic bacteria in the gut. Data suggest that one in ten patients treated with digoxin tablets will degrade 40% or more of the ingested dose. As a result, certain antibiotics may increase the absorption of digoxin in such patients. Although inactivation of these bacteria by antibiotics is rapid, the serum digoxin concentration will rise at a rate consistent with the elimination half-life of digoxin. The magnitude of rise in serum digoxin concentration relates to the extent of bacterial inactivation, and may be as much as two-fold in some cases.. Distribution: Following drug administration, a 6- to 8-hour tissue distribution phase is observed. This is followed by a much more gradual decline in the serum concentration of the drug, which is dependent on the elimination of digoxin from the body. The peak height and slope of the early portion (absorption/distribution phases) of the ...

The study. Meta-analysis of studies on MEDLINE and COCHRANE from 1993-2014 about the effects of digoxin on mortality in patients suffering from congestive heart failure (CHF) or atrial fibrillation (AF). One study was an RCT, and the others were retrospective or prospective observational studies. Some 19 studies with 326,426 patients were analysed.. Main findings. Among the 235,047 AF patients, those on digoxin had a 29% higher mortality risk than those not on digoxin.. Among the 91,379 CHF patients, digoxin was associated with a 14% increase in mortality risk.. Based on data from all 326, 426 patients in the 19 trials, the use of digoxin was associated with an increased relative risk of mortality of 21% (compared to patients not taking digoxin).. What this means for GPs. GPs should be very cautious when prescribing digoxin, and consider the potential for increase in mortality risk - especially in patients with AF.. It is also advisable to monitor plasma digoxin levels regularly.. The ...

nanogram/ml. However, serum digoxin concentration should be interpreted in the clinical context. Toxicity may occur with lower digoxin serum concentrations. In deciding whether a patients symptoms are due to digoxin, the clinical state together with the serum potassium level and thyroid function are important factors (see Section 4.9). Determination of the serum digoxin concentration may be very helpful in making a decision to treat with further digoxin, but other glycosides and endogenous digoxin-like substances, including metabolites of digoxin, can interfere with the assays that are available and one should always be wary of values which do not seem commensurate with the clinical state of the patient. Observations while temporary withholding digoxin might be more appropriate.

Historically, digoxin has been widely used to slow the ventricular rate (predominantly at rest) in patients with atrial fibrillation. However, digoxin has now been shown to improve symptoms in patients with moderate to severe congestive heart failure who are in sinus rhythm and are already taking ACE inhibitors and diuretics. The largest ever randomised, placebo-controlled, double blind trial of digoxin included 6800 patients with heart failure. The patients who started digoxin had a significant improvement in symptoms. This was associated with a near 10% reduction in hospital admissions during the follow-up period.1 There was no difference in mortality in the digoxin-treated and control groups, although serum digoxin concentrations in the study group were at the lower end of the therapeutic range (approximately 0.8 ng/mL). This study has not excluded an adverse effect of digoxin at higher doses which produce plasma concentrations within the therapeutic range. The study shows that digoxin has a ...
1 The characteristics of the binding of 12‐alpha‐[3H]‐digoxin to the membranes of intact human erythrocytes are described. 2 Only one class of binding site can be demonstrated. Binding is time‐ and temperature‐ dependent, saturable and slowly reversible; it is inhibited by other cardiac glycosides and by potassium. 3 Pre‐incubation with unlabelled digoxin reduces the subsequent binding of 12‐alpha‐[3H]‐digoxin in stoichiometric fashion. 4 The possible application of the measurement of the binding of 12‐alpha‐[3H]‐digoxin to the study of biochemical pharmacological events occurring during digoxin therapy is discussed. 1979 The British Pharmacological Society

The age or gender of the person being tested, health history, the method used for the test, and many other factors may affect when and how often a lab test is required. The therapeutic range is 0.8 to 2.0ng/mL for those being treated for heart failure and levels ,4.0 ng/mL may be potentially life-threatening. This range for digoxin has been established over time. Once the dosage level is determined, digoxin levels are monitored routinely, at a frequency determined by the doctor, to verify correct dosage and if any changes occur in drug source, dosage, or other medications taken at the same time. Recent studies may help to improve patient selection for digoxin therapy, since Digoxin therapy may improve the prognosis of advanced heart failure patients with atrial fibrillation. However, no benefit of digoxin was demonstrated for patients in with sinus rhythm [15]. Routine measurement of serum digoxin concentration is probably not necessary in stable patients [16].

Methods and Results-We determined nationally representative numbers and rates of emergency department (ED) visits for digoxin toxicity in the United States using 2005 to 2010 reports from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System-Cooperative Adverse Drug Event Surveillance project and the National Ambulatory (and Hospital Ambulatory) Medical Care Surveys. Based on 441 cases, an estimated 5156 (95% confidence interval [CI], 2663-7648) ED visits for digoxin toxicity occurred annually in the United States; more than three fourths (78.8% [95% CI, 73.5%-84.1%]) resulted in hospitalization. Serum digoxin level was ≥2.0 ng/mL for 95.8% (95% CI, 93.2%-98.4%) of estimated ED visits with levels reported (n=251 cases). The rate of ED visits per 10 000 outpatient prescription visits among patients ≥85 years was twice that of patients 40 to 84 years (rate ratio, 2.4 [95% CI, 1.2-5.0]); among women, the rate was twice that of men (rate ratio, 2.3 [95% CI, 1.1-4.7]).

AimsDigoxin is recommended for long-term rate control in paroxysmal, persistent, and permanent atrial fibrillation (AF). While some analyses suggest an association of digoxin with a higher mortality in AF, the intrinsic nature of this association has not been examined in propensity-matched cohorts, which is the objective of the current study.Methods and resultsIn Atrial Fibrillation Follow-up Investigation of Rhythm Management (AFFIRM), 4060 patients with paroxysmal and persistent AF were randomized to rate (n = 2027) vs. rhythm (n = 2033) control strategies. Of these, 1377 received digoxin as initial therapy and 1329 received no digoxin at baseline. Propensity scores for digoxin use were estimated for each of these 2706 patients and used to assemble a cohort of 878 pairs of patients receiving and not receiving digoxin, who were balanced on 59 baseline characteristics. Matched patients had a mean age of 70 years, 40% were women, and 11% non-white. During the 3.4 years of the mean follow-up, ...

Digoxin toxicity, also known as digoxin poisoning, is a type of poisoning that occurs in people who take too much of the medication digoxin or eat plants such as foxglove that contain a similar substance. Symptoms are typically vague. They may include vomiting, loss of appetite, confusion, blurred vision, changes in color perception, and decreased energy. Potential complications include an irregular heartbeat, which can be either too fast or too slow. Toxicity may occur over a short period of time following an overdose or gradually during long-term treatment. Risk factors include low potassium, low magnesium, and high calcium. Digoxin is a medication used for heart failure or atrial fibrillation. An electrocardiogram is a routine part of diagnosis. Blood levels are only useful more than six hours following the last dose. Activated charcoal may be used if it can be given within two hours of the person taking the medication. Atropine may be used if the heart rate is slow while magnesium sulfate ...
Digitalization has become a topic of several presentations and discussions in real estate industry seminars in recent years. Often the speeches are about why the real estate industry needs digitalization, presenting threats and opportunities for the participants of the seminars. Still, real estate industry is conservative by nature and thus far property owners have not needed to innovate in order to stay in business. Therefore, a question arises that how do real estate owners react to the growing expectations about digitalization. On the other hand, relatively little is known about the innovativeness of real estate firms, as innovation research in built environment sector has largely focused on building project management phase organizations and facility management firms. Still, the real estate owners have a central role and a long-term perspective on the innovation in the built environment sector as a whole, as they are clients in all building life-cycle phases.. Thus, this thesis purpose is to ...

Digoxin can interact with a wide range of over-the-counter and prescription medications. Certain drugs interact so badly that they should not usually be given to someone taking digoxin. They include the gout medicine colchicine, the strong anti-nausea drug dolasetron (Anzemet), the anti-arrhythmic drug dronedarone (Multaq) and the multiple sclerosis medicine fingolimod (Gilenya). Milnacipran (Savella), used to treat fibromyalgia, can increase the risk of dizziness and fainting and irregular heart rhythms in conjunction with digoxin. The antibiotics neomycin and paromomycin can lower digoxin levels unacceptably.. Other interactions can also be troublesome and should be discussed with the physician.. Antacids, for example, may diminish the proper absorption of digoxin. So can certain diarrhea medicines.. A number of other medications, such as amiodarone (Cordarone), propafenone (Rythmol) and quinidine drugs, may make Lanoxin more toxic.. So can Sandimmune, used to prevent transplant ...
AF patients starting digoxin treatment showed increased mortality, especially in the first 6 months, irrespective of the coexistence of HF, and digoxin concentrations >1.2 ng/ml should be avoided.
Be aware. To see how much digoxin is in your body.your doctor may order a digoxin costco test.. Spironolactone and DLIS are much more extensively protein-bound than digoxin. As a result.assays of free digoxin levels in protein-free ultrafiltrate (which tend to be about 25% less than total levels.consistent with the usual extent of protein binding) are less affected by spironolactone or DLIS. It should be noted that ultrafiltration does not solve all interference problems with alternative medicines. The use of an LC/MS/MS method may be the better option according to the good results it provides.especially in terms of specificity and limit of quantization.. Use caution in patients with acute myocardial infarction. may increase myocardial oxygen demand. during acute coronary syndrome.digoxin administered IV may be used to slow a rapid ventricular response and improve left ventricular function in the acute treatment of atrial fibrillation associated with severe LV function digoxin costco heart ...

Heart failure (HF) is the leading cause of hospitalization among older adults. Digoxin has been shown to reduce hospitalization due to worsening HF. However, at the commonly prescribed dose of 0.25 mg/day, digoxin does not reduce mortality. New data suggest that at low doses (0.125 mg/day or lower) digoxin not only reduces hospitalization due to HF, but may also reduce mortality. Further, at lower doses, it also reduces the risk of digoxin toxicity and obviates the need for routine serum digoxin level testing. Digoxin in low doses should be prescribed to older adults with symptomatic HF ...

What Is a Digoxin Level Test?. The medication digoxin is used to treat congestive heart failure and a condition in which the upper chambers of the heart (the atria) beat faster than normal. This drug has a narrow therapeutic range, meaning that there is a narrow margin between the dose that improves the condition and a dose that could be toxic.. Many factors can alter the metabolism of digoxin in dogs or cats, including other medications the pet may be taking at the same time. A digoxin level test measures the level of digoxin in the blood to determine if the dose is within the therapeutic range (the correct range for treating the condition). This ensures that the pet receives the benefits of the medication without any harmful effects.. The test requires a small blood sample from your pet. Ideally, the sample should be drawn 8 to 10 hours after the pill is administered. Most hospitals send the blood sample to an outside laboratory for analysis, and the results are usually available within a few ...

A class I recall is being issued for all Digitek (digoxin) medications, because they might have twice the approved levels of digoxin. Double-strength pills can cause digitalis toxicity, which can result in vomiting, nausea, low blood pressure, cardiac instability, bradycardia and even death.. Digitek is a trademark of Actavis Totowa for their digoxin tablets, which are prescribed to treat heart failure and abnormal heart rhythms. The drug is distributed by Mylan Pharmaceuticals Inc., under a Bertek lebel and by UDL Laboratories, Inc. under a UDL label.. Patients taking Digitek should contact their physician immediately for medical advice. Pharmacies who carry Digitek should return the product to their place of purchase. Overdosing on Digitek can be very dangerous. In fact, in the 1980s and 90s there was a male nurse who claimed to have killed the patients to end their suffering.. If you or someone you know has taken Digitek and experienced adverse side effects, you may be entitled to legal ...

Recent studies have pointed to the existence of an endogenous digoxin-like immuno-active factor (DLIF), which may be associated with hypertension and pre-eclampsia. The DLIF levels in the umbilical venous and umbilical arterial blood of neonates, as well as the maternal serum of primigravidas and multigravidas with and without pre-eclampsia, were determined by means of a commercially available radioimmunoassay kit, which is cross-reactive with DLIF, in 44 mothers and their babies in search for a possible placental, fetal or maternal origin of the DLIF. The mean placental and neonatal masses were significantly lower in the pre-eclampsia group than in the control group (P , 0,01). However, the DLIF levels in the maternal serum, umbilical cord venous and umbilical cord arterial serum were statistically significantly higher in the pre-eclampsia group than in the control pregnant group (P , 0,05). A very strong correlation was found between umbulical cord venous and arterial DLIF levels (r = 0,90; P ...

Amiodarone is a potent antiarrhythmic agent that is used to treat ventricular arrhythmias and atrial fibrillation. The drug prevents the recurrence of life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias and produces a modest reduction of sudden deaths in high-risk patients. Amiodarone is more effective than sotalol or propafenone in preventing recurrent atrial fibrillation in patients for whom a rhythm-control strategy is chosen. When long-term amiodarone therapy is used, potential drug toxicity and interactions must be considered. The dosage of amiodarone should be kept at the lowest effective level. In patients who also are taking digoxin and warfarin, physicians must pay close attention to digoxin levels and prothrombin time, keeping in mind that the effects of interaction with amiodarone do not peak until seven weeks after the initiation of concomitant therapy. Laboratory studies to assess liver and thyroid function should be performed at least every six months.

Instructions for use of this drug describes it as a complex organic compound, which is made from a medicinal plant called the woolly Foxglove.. Positive inotropic effect is the main feature of this medication. Providing a heart tonic selective effect, Digoxin increases contraction of the heart muscle (myocardium). Under the influence of the drug, myocardium begins to receive more oxygen. The result of the contractile activity of the heart muscle increases and heart rate slows down. If heart failure is accompanied by congestion, this remedy acts as a vasodilator. In addition, this drug has a mild diuretic effect, reducing swelling.. Primarily the indication for the use of Digoxin is congestive heart failure, including congestive phenomena. Also the drug is used in various manifestations of tachyarrhythmias - paroxysmal tachycardia, atrial fibrillation, atrial fibrillation.. Pharmaceutical companies produce this cardiac glycoside in the form of tablets. You should pay particular attention to the ...

Preeclampsia (PE) complicates from 5 to 10% of pregnancies and it is a number one cause of maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality worldwide. Nevertheless, a specific and highly effective therapy of this disorder does not exist. As illustrated by therapeutic efficacy of anti-digoxin antibody (DIGIBIND) in preeclampsia, endogenous digitalis-like sodium pump ligands play an important role in the pathogenesis of this syndrome. Previously, we demonstrated that levels of endogenous bufadienolide Na/KATPase inhibitors are elevated in patients with PE, and that antibody to marinobufagenin lower blood pressure in rats with pregnancy-induced hypertension and ex vivo reverse inhibition of the Na/K-ATPase from erythrocytes from patients with PE. Most recently, we developed three anti-MBG monoclonal antibodies which in lower blood pressure in several rat experimental models.. We are proposing a pilot proof-of concept study aimed to demonstrate that MBG is target for DIGIBIND in preeclampsia. If ...

N2 - The effect of insulin-dependent diabetes on hepatobiliary clearance of acetaminophen, bilirubin and digoxin was determined using Sprague-Dawley rats that were treated with a 45 mg/kg dose of streptozotocin 28 days before experimentation. Urinary excretion of acetaminophen was increased 280%, whereas biliary excretion was decreased 65% and total clearance was unchanged. Both steady-state volume of distribution and elimination half-life of acetaminophen were decreased in diabetic rats by 23 and 25%, respectively. Biliary excretion of glucuronide and sulfate conjugates was decreased by 75 and 50%, respectively, whereas parent acetaminophen excretion was unchanged. The glutathione conjugate was only detected in normal and insulin-treated rats; however, comparable levels of a cysteine conjugate were detected in bile ...

From ancient times, humans have used cardiac-glycoside-containing plants and their crude extracts as arrow coatings, homicidal or suicidal aids, rat poisons, heart tonics, diuretics and emetics, primarily due to the toxic nature of these compounds.[6] Thus, though cardiac glycosides have been used for their medicinal function, their toxicity must also be recognized. For example, in 2008 US poison centers reported 2,632 cases of digoxin toxicity, and 17 cases of digoxin-related deaths.[12] Because cardiac glycosides affect the cardiovascular, neurologic, and gastrointestinal systems, these three systems can be used to determine the effects of toxicity. The effect of these compounds on the cardiovascular system presents a reason for concern, as they can directly affect the function of the heart through their inotropic and chronotropic effects. In terms of inotropic activity, excessive cardiac glycoside dosage results in cardiac contractions with greater force, as further calcium is released from ...
