Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A group of related plant alkaloids that contain the BERBERINE heterocyclic ring structure.

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.

Animate or inanimate sources which normally harbor disease-causing organisms and thus serve as potential sources of disease outbreaks. Reservoirs are distinguished from vectors (DISEASE VECTORS) and carriers, which are agents of disease transmission rather than continuing sources of potential disease outbreaks.

MICROCOMPUTERS, sometimes called PDA, that are very small and portable, fitting in a hand, and that have much more function than a calculator. They are convenient to use in clinical and other field situations for quick data management. They usually require docking with MICROCOMPUTERS for updates.

Spherical particles of nanometer dimensions. They are biodegradable and self-assembling and have potential as DRUG CARRIERS and imaging agents.
