Mechanical stretch increases sodium and calcium entry into myocytes and activates the late sodium current. GS967, a triazolopyridine derivative, is a sodium channel blocker with preferential effects on the late sodium current. The present study evaluates whether GS967 inhibits or modulates the arrhythmogenic electrophysiological effects of myocardial stretch.

Sodium houttuyfonate (SH), a chemical compound originating from Houttuynia cordata, has been reported to have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antifungal effects, as well as cardioprotective effe...
We recently reported a quantitative relationship between the degree of functional perturbation reported in the literature for 356 variants in the cardiac sodium channel gene SCN5A and the penetrance o...
Taurine-magnesium coordination compound (TMCC) exhibits antiarrhythmic effects in cesium-chloride-and ouabain-induced arrhythmias; however, the mechanism underlying these effects on arrhythmia remains...
Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) such as the anti-PD-1 antibody Nivolumab, achieve remarkable clinical efficacy in patients with late stage cancers. However, only a small subset of patients benefit...
Dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (DPP-4) inhibition is a new therapeutic strategy for type 2 diabetic patients. DPP-4 has been reported to enhance inflammation. However, the effect of DPP-4 inhibition on inflam...
This study will assess whether exposure response analysis of the electrocardiographic QTc and J-Tpeakc intervals in Phase 1 clinical pharmacology studies can be used to confirm that drugs ...
The current prospective, randomized, controlled MoSTEMI trial aims to systematically examine the effects of morphine on the platelet inhibitory effects of the orally administered platelet ...
The aim of the study is to test the efficacy of low versus high volume hydration and two different solutions (sodium chloride versus sodium bicarbonate) in preventing contrast induced neph...
This study investigates the role of two endogenous inhibitory mechanisms; exercise-induced hypoalgesia and a conditioning painful stimulus on passive joint range of motion, passive resisti...
The increased risk for contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) undergoing coronary angiography (CAG) has been established. Current and historical ...
Cell membrane glycoproteins selective for sodium ions. Fast sodium current is associated with the action potential in neural membranes.
A class of drugs that act by inhibition of sodium influx through cell membranes. Blockade of sodium channels slows the rate and amplitude of initial rapid depolarization, reduces cell excitability, and reduces conduction velocity.
A sodium-hydrogen antiporter expressed primarily by EPITHELIAL CELLS in the kidneys, it localizes to the apical membrane of the PROXIMAL KIDNEY TUBULE, where it functions in sodium and water reabsorption and possibly calcium homeostasis. It also is expressed in heart, brain, and lung tissues and is resistant to AMILORIDE inhibition.
Stretch receptors found in the bronchi and bronchioles. Pulmonary stretch receptors are sensors for a reflex which stops inspiration. In humans, the reflex is protective and is probably not activated during normal respiration.
Sodium or sodium compounds used in foods or as a food. The most frequently used compounds are sodium chloride or sodium glutamate.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
