Digoxin is the primary cardiac glycoside in clinical use. Because of the narrow therapeutic index and risk of toxicity, therapeutic drug monitoring is highly recommended. In Egypt, most ca...
The purpose of this study is to examine the drug-drug interaction in your body when given the study drug, bexagliflozin, with the heart failure medication digoxin. The study will evaluate ...
This is a randomized, double-blind, multi-centered study to compare 6 months of medical treatment with digoxin or propranolol in infants with SVT Background: SVT is the most common sustain...
The primary hypothesis is that digoxin can be safely added to decitabine and will increase the response rates in medically unfit patients with newly diagnosed AML/MDS or those with relapse...
The aim of this trial is to investigate the effect of multiple doses of flibanserin on the single dose pharmacokinetics of digoxin in healthy female and male volunteers. Digoxin is a narro...
Due to the narrow therapeutic range of digoxin, determining serum/plasma digoxin concentrations is critical for assessing patients with congestive heart failure, atrial fibrillation, and certain types...
Polycythemia is characterized by increased blood viscosity and a chronic inflammatory state possibly giving rise to excessive thromboembolic events and hypertensive cardiovascular disease. We aimed to...
We report the clinical case of a patient presenting with an acute myocardial infarction with ST- segment elevation. The patient is affected by polycythemia vera for many years and doesn't have any oth...
Whether there is a causal association between digoxin and mortality among patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), with or without congestive heart failure (HF), has been controversial; in particular, ...
Autoantibody against M2-muscarinic acetylcholine receptor (anti-M2AChR) has a biological effect similar to a vagus agonist. Digoxin has a function of vagus nervous system stimulation. We hypothesized ...
A cardiac glycoside sometimes used in place of DIGOXIN. It has a longer half-life than digoxin; toxic effects, which are similar to those of digoxin, are longer lasting. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p665)
Alpha- or beta-acetyl derivatives of DIGOXIN or lanatoside C from Digitalis lanata. They are better absorbed and longer acting than digoxin and are used in congestive heart failure.
3 beta,12 beta,14-Trihydroxy-5 beta-card-20(22)-enolide. A cardenolide which is the aglycon of digoxin. Can be obtained by hydrolysis of digoxin or from Digitalis orientalis L. and Digitalis lanata Ehrh.
A semisynthetic digitalis glycoside with the general properties of DIGOXIN but more rapid onset of action. Its cardiotonic action is prolonged by its demethylation to DIGOXIN in the liver. It has been used in the treatment of congestive heart failure (HEART FAILURE).
A cardiotonic glycoside obtained mainly from Digitalis lanata; it consists of three sugars and the aglycone DIGOXIGENIN. Digoxin has positive inotropic and negative chronotropic activity. It is used to control ventricular rate in ATRIAL FIBRILLATION and in the management of congestive heart failure with atrial fibrillation. Its use in congestive heart failure and sinus rhythm is less certain. The margin between toxic and therapeutic doses is small. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p666)
