Tolerance of benznidazole in a United States Chagas Disease clinic. - Clinical infectious diseases : an official publication of the Infectious Diseases Society of America
The US-based Center of Excellence for Chagas Disease performed an observational study on the safety and tolerance of benznidazole 5 mg/kg/day for 60 days in 30 adults with chronic Chagas disease. The side-effect profile was suboptimal, including 5 cases of debilitating neuropathy and an unusually high angioedema rate.Â© The Author 2015.

Antithrombotic options for atrial fibrillation in 2012. - Cardiovascular & hematological disorders drug targets
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common arrhythmia in clinical practice. An important component of the management of patients with AF involves prevention of thromboembolism and stroke. Coumarins, such as warfarin had been the only available oral antithrombotic agent for prevention of thromboembolism for many decades. Following intestinal absorption, coumarins inhibit multiple steps of the clotting cascade that leads to inhibition of coagulation factors II, VII, IX and X. In addition to delayed and variable inhibition of coagulation, coumarin therapy has a narrow therapeutic window for optimal balance of risk and benefit, which requires regular assessment of the international normalized ratio (INR) to monitor coagulation. A quest for safer, more effective therapies that do not need monitoring has led to the development of dabigatran, rivaroxaban, and apixaban. In this article, we review these newer antithrombotic agents and discuss role of these drugs in clinical practice.
Radiofrequency catheter ablation of atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia in a patient with orthotopic heart transplantation by bicaval anastomosis. - Journal of interventional cardiac electrophysiology : an international journal of arrhythmias and pacing
Patients with orthotopic heart transplantation may have a variety of arrhythmias. There are reports of successful radiofrequency catheter ablation of some of them. Two months after orthotopic cardiac transplantation by bicaval anastomosis, a 49-year-old man developed episodes of tachycardia. The patient developed with dyspnoea and hypotension during typical atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT) revealed by electrocardiogram. During programmed atrial stimulation with progressively increasing prematurity, dual auriculoventricular nodal physiology was observed and AVNRT was induced. This tachycardia was successfully eliminated without complications by radiofrequency catheter ablation of the slow pathway. The patient remained asymptomatic at 4-month follow-up.
