The Evaluation of New Antiarrhythmic Drugs: Proceedings of the Symposium on How to Evaluate a New Antiarrhythmic Drug: The Evaluation of New … (Developments in Cardiovascular Medicine)

Features: Used Book in Good Condition

Thus, there are now several chronic canine myocardial infarction­ ventricular tachyarrhythmia models which are available for the evaluation of new antiarrhythmic drugs (Table I). The available models fulfill many, but not all of the requirements for an ideal chronic arrhythmia model (Table 11). The sustained arrhythmias initiated in these models using programmed pacing presumably have the same localized reentrant mechanism that characterizes chronic human myocardial infarction and chronic coronary 26 artery disease. However, these models are not suitable for determining whether a new drug will abolish spontaneous ly-occurring PVCs. In addition, these models are of unproven value in the study of acute spontaneously­ occurring sudden death; although recently initiated, provocative work may shed further light on this subject. Most importantly, the available models do seem well-suited to the evaluation of new drugs intended for use in chronic coronary artery disease patients at risk for sustained reentrant ventricular tachycardia or VF. Notably, the results of preliminary electropharmacologic studies in these canine models parallel closely those findings reported in human patients with sustained life-threatening ventricu­ lar tachyarrhythmias (Table Ill). Therefore, increased use of these chronic models for new antiarrhythmic drug testing is strongly recommended. TABLE II Ideal vs Available Chronic Canine – Arrhythmia Models Ideal Available 1. (a) Arrhythmia mechanism comparable to Yes patients with chronic CAD: Reentry (b) Pathophysiology similar (e. g. , atherogenic CAD) No 2. Susceptible to: (a) spontaneous PVCs No l No (b) spontaneous VT/VF (c) inducible VT/VF Yes 3.

Lipoproteins and Cardiovascular Disease: Methods and Protocols (Methods in Molecular Biology)

The lipid-rich and otherwise challenging nature of many key tissues complicates many aspects of current research, and applications of the unique nature of lipoproteins and their biological effects has engendered unique and vital methodologies.  In Lipoproteins and Cardiovascular Disease: Methods and Protocols, experts in the field present a compendium of advanced and classical molecular biology methods targeted towards lipoprotein, atherosclerosis, and vascular biology research, bringing together in a single volume an updated set of protocols and strategies for methods now driving the most recent advances, along with classical methods that are still widely used.  Among the many topics covered in this cutting-edge work, the book delves into crucial techniques such as quantitative real-time PCR, microarrays, RT-PCR laser capture microdissection, and tissue-specific gene overexpression, knockout, and knockdown methodologies, including AAV as a liver-directed gene delivery vehicle.  Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, chapters include introductions to their respective subjects, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and valuable notes which highlight tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.


Comprehensive and easy to use, Lipoproteins and Cardiovascular Disease: Methods and Protocols serves both novices and experts alike as a complete guide for any researcher with an interest in lipoproteins and their significant biological effects.

    Fetal and Hybrid Procedures in Congenital Heart Diseases

    This book is an ideal, up-to-date guide to the application of fetal interventions and hybrid procedures, in which the surgeon and the interventional cardiologist work together, for the treatment of congenital heart diseases at a very early stage when disease outcome may be altered. State of the art data and clear instruction are offered on techniques such as fetal pulmonary and aortic valve dilatation, fetal interatrial septum stenting, hybrid defect closure, hybrid stent implantation, and hypoplastic left heart syndrome therapy. Recognized experts describe the benefits of such early interventions, particularly evident in the case of valve disease, and explain how the hybrid strategy, by combining advantages and tools from each approach, can reduce invasiveness and risks and improve results. The book also looks ahead to the likely impact of new technologies, including nanotechnology, that will soon be available. Fetal and Hybrid Procedures in Congenital Heart Diseases will be a rich source of knowledge, step-by-step guidance, and practical tips and tricks for obstetricians/gynecologists, fetal cardiologists, pediatric cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, congenital cardiac surgeons, anesthesiologists, and intensivists.
