Myocarditis Treatment Trial

To determine whether immunosuppressive treatment improved cardiac function in patients with biopsy-proven myocarditis.

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...

French National Observatory Tracking Viral Myocarditis: Mortality, Cardiovascular Events, Sequels on (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) MRI

Acute myocarditis is a serious illness affecting a young population with a very variable course (of full recovery at the onset of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), or even sudden death). Very ...

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...

Clinical Assessment of New Treatment Regimen for Adult Fulminant Myocarditis

This is a retrospective cohort study to assess the clinical outcome of patients with fulminant myocarditis using "Life-support Based Comprehensive Treatment Regimen" and conventional thera...

Arrhythmias in Myocarditis: State of the Art.

Many kinds of arrhythmias may occur in patients with myocarditis at any stage of the disease. However, as compared to the other clinical presentations, arrhythmic myocarditis has been poorly described...

Longitudinal 18F-FDG PET imaging in a rat model of autoimmune myocarditis.

Although mortality rate is very high, diagnosis of acute myocarditis remains challenging with conventional tests. We aimed to elucidate the potential role of longitudinal 2-Deoxy-2-18F-fluoro-D-glucos...

Myocarditis in a Patient on Clozapine: What did it?

We are presenting the case of a 37-year-old male with schizoaffective disorder who developed myocarditis within three weeks of starting on clozapine for his treatment-resistant psychosis. The patient ...

Phaeochromocytoma found on cardiovascular magnetic resonance in a patient presenting with acute myocarditis: an unusual association.

Myocarditis is inflammation of the cardiac muscle. The symptoms, signs and basic investigation findings can mimic that of myocardial infarction. The most common cause is infection (most commonly viral...

Effect of cyclosporine coadministration on the pharmacokinetics of eltrombopag in healthy volunteers.

Eltrombopag is indicated in patients with severe aplastic anemia (SAA) refractory to prior immunosuppressive therapy. The combination of eltrombopag and immunosuppressive therapy (such as cyclosporine...

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.

A 17-KDa cytoplasmic PEPTIDYLPROLYL ISOMERASE involved in immunoregulation. It is a member of the cyclophilin family of proteins that binds to CYCLOSPORINE.

A genus of the family PICORNAVIRIDAE causing encephalitis and myocarditis in rodents. ENCEPHALOMYOCARDITIS VIRUS is the type species.

A cyclic undecapeptide from an extract of soil fungi. It is a powerful immunosupressant with a specific action on T-lymphocytes. It is used for the prophylaxis of graft rejection in organ and tissue transplantation. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed).
