Monitoring Drug-induced Myocarditis (CardiTOX)

2019-03-05 02:29:15 | BioPortfolio


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 the World Health Organization (WHO) global Individual Case Safety Report (ICSR) database (VigiBase).


Several drugs and chemotherapies seem to have an impact on the myocardium and are responsible of myocarditis. Those are poorly described, due to the modification of the pharmacopeia, and the recent recognition of several of these adverse events. This study investigates the main characteristics of patients affected by myocarditis side effect imputed to drugs. A causality assessment according to the WHO-UMC (World Health Organization - Uppsala Monitoring Center) is systematically applied.

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...

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 ...

ARrhythmias in MYocarditis

Myocarditis promotes the occurrence of serious cardiac arrhythmias and conduction disorders which may lead to sudden cardiac death, the need for catheter ablation of arrhythmia or implanta...

Association of ECG parameters with late gadolinium enhancement and outcome in patients with clinical suspicion of acute or subacute myocarditis referred for CMR imaging.

Risk stratification of myocarditis is challenging due to variable clinical presentations. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) is the primary non-invasive imaging modality to investigate myocarditi...

Myocarditis following the use of different immune checkpoint inhibitor regimens: A real-world analysis of post-marketing surveillance data.

Although myocarditis has been reported in patients treated with immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs), there are few real-world studies to compare the occurrences and characteristics of myocarditis afte...

Cardiac MRI Evaluation of Myocarditis.

Cardiac MRI (CMR) is the non-invasive test of choice for the assessment of myocarditis. In 2009, the Lake Louise Criteria for the diagnosis of myocarditis using CMR were first released. The decade sin...

Diagnostic Value of Different Noninvasive Criteria of Latent Myocarditis in Comparison with Myocardial Biopsy.

The aim of this study was to quantify the value of various clinical, laboratory, and instrumental signs in the diagnosis of myocarditis in comparison with morphological studies of the myocardium.

MicroRNA-223-3p modulates dendritic cell function and ameliorates experimental autoimmune myocarditis by targeting the NLRP3 inflammasome.

Autoimmune myocarditis is a cause of dilated cardiomyopathy and heart failure. MicroRNAs regulate many immune processes, but their role in aberrant inflammation during autoimmune myocarditis remains u...

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

A localized infection of mucous membranes or skin caused by toxigenic strains of CORYNEBACTERIUM DIPHTHERIAE. It is characterized by the presence of a pseudomembrane at the site of infection. DIPHTHERIA TOXIN, produced by C. diphtheriae, can cause myocarditis, polyneuritis, and other systemic toxic effects.

A heterogeneous group of infections produced by coxsackieviruses, including HERPANGINA, aseptic meningitis (MENINGITIS, ASEPTIC), a common-cold-like syndrome, a non-paralytic poliomyelitis-like syndrome, epidemic pleurodynia (PLEURODYNIA, EPIDEMIC) and a serious MYOCARDITIS.
