AbstractMinesapride (drug code: DSP ‐6952) is a potential gastrointestinal prokinetic agent with high selectivity for 5‐hydroxytryptamine 4 (5‐HT4) receptor that acts as a partial agonist. Although 5 ‐HT4 receptor agonists are expected to show efficacy in patients with irritable bowel syndrome with constipation, only tegaserod is available for female patients, with limitations, in the United States. Previously, another 5 ‐HT4 receptor agonist, cisapride, was widely used for the treatment of upper gastrointestinal diseases, but was withdrawn from the market because of arrhythmia with QT prolongation. Chemically, b...

ConclusionsFetuses with structurally normal hearts and sustained SVT can be effectively managed with transplacental drug therapy with minimal risk of intrauterine fetal demise. Treatment requires multiple anti ‐arrhythmic agents in over half of cases. Later gestational age at fetal diagnosis and the presence of depressed fetal ventricular function, but not hydrops, predict postnatal arrhythmia burden.This article is protected by copyright.

Catheter ablation has been considered an effective strategy for the treatment of ventricular arrhythmias (VA) originating from the left ventricular summit (LVS). However, the inherent complexity of the anatomy of the LVS may result in failed ablation or recurrence of VA.

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) carries an increased risk of sudden death due to ventricular arrhythmias (VA). The implantable defibrillator (ICD) is a well-established therapy to treat VA. Monomorphic ventricular tachycardias (MVT) are frequent in HCM patients and suitable for antitachycardia pacing (ATP) termination.

Recent studies for cardiac cell-based therapy have demonstrated significant improvements in cardiac function. However, there are high incidences of ventricular arrhythmias in animal models of myocardial infarction (MI) injected with pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes (PSC-CMs). The current study by Yu et  al (Sci Rep 2019; 9:9238; PMID: 31239508) examined the underlying mechanisms of arrhythmogenesis. The authors provided a comprehensive computational modeling of direct remuscularization approaches to cell therapy using multiscale 3D whole-heart modeling integrating representations of cell delivery and trans...

The Advanced Cardiac Life Support algorithm for ventricular fibrillation (VF) and pulseless ventricular tachycardia (pVT) includes adrenaline (epinephrine).1 Through its peripherally vasoconstrictive alpha-adrenergic effect, blood flow is redirected centrally, improving coronary perfusion. Adrenaline ’s beta-adrenergic effect however, may be harmful. It increases myocardial sensitivity to arrhythmias, potentially leading to cardiovascular collapse from refractory pVT/VF.2,3 Therefore, there is a need to investigate potential therapies that may counteract adrenaline’s deleterious effects.

New Brunswick, NJ, February 25, 2020 — Johnson &Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) today announced that the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson &Johnson, in collaboration with Apple, opened enrollment for the Heartline™ Study. The study is designed to explore if the Heartline™ Study app on iPhone and heart health features on Apple Watch can improve health outcomes, including reducing the risk of stroke, with earlier detection of atrial fibrillation (AFib). AFib, a common form of irregular heart rhythm, is a leading cause of stroke in the U.S. To enroll in the Heartline™ Study, individuals must be a...
