Persantine: Variation in Response Trial

2014-08-27 03:27:20 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The primary objective of this study is to understand why different people respond differently to the medication Persantine. The effects of Persantine will be evaluated by performing echocardiograms, blood tests and by measuring the flow of blood in the arteries of the heart in patients undergoing a clinically indicated percutaneous coronary intervention.

Description

Participants will receive three doses of Persantine intravenously for the research study. Before and after receiving the Persantine doses, patients will have an echocardiogram and coronary artery blood flow will be measured. Blood tests,measure the function of the adenosine transporter. In addition variations in the gene for the adenosine transporter will be evaluated.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.

Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.

A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.

A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.

Pathological processes of CORONARY ARTERIES that may derive from a congenital abnormality, atherosclerotic, or non-atherosclerotic cause.
