Publication date: Available online 13 November 2019Source: Pharmacological ResearchAuthor(s): Juthipong Benjanuwattra, Natthaphat Siri-Angkul, Siriporn C. Chattipakorn, Nipon C. hattipakornAbstractThe cancer burden on health and socioeconomics remains exceedingly high, with more than ten million new cases reported worldwide in 2018. The financial cost of managing cancer patients has great economic impact on both an individual and societal levels. Currently, many chemotherapeutic agents are available to treat various malignancies. One of these agents is doxorubicin, which was isolated from Streptomyces peucetius in the 1960...

Rhoades, Rebekah Brooks, Aalim M. Weljie, Robert N. Eisenman, Amita Sehgal, Chi V. DangSummaryDrosophila Myc (dMyc) is highly conserved and functions as a transcription factor similar to mammalian Myc. We previously found that oncogenic Myc disrupts the molecular clock in cancer cells. Here, we demonstrate that misregulation of dMyc expression affects Drosophila circadian behavior. dMyc overexpression results in a high percentage of arrhythmic flies, ...

AbstractPurpose of reviewAthletes diagnosed with cardiovascular disease may receive implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs). Until recently, there were no data describing the safety of return to play for athletes receiving an ICD, and consensus recommendations restricted ICD patients to competitive sports no more vigorous than bowling or golf.Recent findingsThe ICD Sports Registry prospectively followed 440 athletes who continued sports participation after receiving an ICD, for up to 4  years. While many received shocks, both appropriate and inappropriate, during competition or practice, as well as during other...

AbstractBackgroundDexmedetomidine has been shown to have antiarrhythmic effects by exhibiting sympatholytic properties and activating the vagus nerve in preclinical studies. Results from clinical trials of dexmedetomidine on atrial fibrillation (AF) following adult cardiac surgery are controversial.Materials and methodsWe searched EMBASE, PubMed and Cochrane CENTRAL databases for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing the antiarrhythmic effect of dexmedetomidine versus placebo or other anesthetic drugs in adult patients undergoing cardiac surgery. The primary outcome was the incidence of AF. The secondary outcomes w...

Authors: Kageyama K, Kinoshita N, Terui K, Moriyama T, Kudo T, Daimon M Abstract Giant internal carotid artery aneurysms sometimes extend into the sellar region, which rarely but occasionally results in hypopituitarism due to the compression of the normal pituitary gland or hypothalamus. Hyponatremia is a known complication of hypopituitarism. We herein report two cases of hypopituitarism caused by intrasellar aneurysm of different origins, resulting in hyponatremia. Untreated hypopituitarism may lead to lethargy, coma, cardiac arrhythmia, and death. Therefore, we must be alert for the occurrence of giant intrasell...

Conclusion: In conclusion, this study demonstrated that over-expression of Id2 preserved cardiac function and ameliorated adverse cardiac remodeling, which might be a promising treatment target for cardiac fibrosis and apoptosis.

ConclusionOur PPCM collective treated with standard therapy for heart failure, dopamine D2 receptor agonists, and anticoagulation displays a high and stable long ‐term recovery rate with low mortality at 5‐year follow‐up. However, long‐term use of cardiovascular medication, persisting orde novo hypertension and arrhythmias were frequent.
