Clinical Trials [4355 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Monitoring Drug-induced Myocarditis (CardiTOX)

Several drugs and chemotherapies seem to induce myocarditis. This study investigates reports of myocarditis, including the International classification of disease ICD-10 for treatments in ...

CMR Features in Patients With Suspected Myocarditis

Presentation of myocarditis is heterogeneous, often ranges from being asymptomatic, to chest pain, dyspnoea, palpitations, and even sudden cardiac death. Diagnosing myocarditis is challeng...

PET-FDG in Myocarditis

This study evaluates the diagnostic performance of 18F-2-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) with rest perfusion ima...

Anakinra Versus Placebo for the Treatment of Acute MyocarditIS

There is no specific treatment of acute myocarditis, especially during the inflammatory period. Interleukin (IL) is specifically involved during this period and play a role in myocardial o...

Ventricular Arrhythmia After Myocarditis in Sportsman

The study aims to assess the prevalence of ventricular rhythmic disorder after an acute myocarditis in sportsmen. 50 patients with acute myocarditis, confirmed by MRI, will be assessed by...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The type species of CARDIOVIRUS causing encephalomyelitis and myocarditis in rodents, pigs, and monkeys. Infection in man has been reported with CNS involvement but without myocarditis.

Inflammatory processes of the muscular walls of the heart (MYOCARDIUM) which result in injury to the cardiac muscle cells (MYOCYTES, CARDIAC). Manifestations range from subclinical to sudden death (DEATH, SUDDEN). Myocarditis in association with cardiac dysfunction is classified as inflammatory CARDIOMYOPATHY usually caused by INFECTION, autoimmune diseases, or responses to toxic substances. Myocarditis is also a common cause of DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY and other cardiomyopathies.

Bacteria that can survive and grow in the complete, or nearly complete absence of oxygen.

Death resulting from the presence of a disease in an individual, as shown by a single case report or a limited number of patients. This should be differentiated from DEATH, the physiological cessation of life and from MORTALITY, an epidemiological or statistical concept.

Form of passive immunization where previously sensitized immunologic agents (cells or serum) are transferred to non-immune recipients. When transfer of cells is used as a therapy for the treatment of neoplasms, it is called adoptive immunotherapy (IMMUNOTHERAPY, ADOPTIVE).
