Acetylator phenotype and the clinical pharmacology of slow-release procainamide

British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology
W CampbellT D Lawrie


Slow-release procainamide given 8-hourly is shown to produce plasma levels generally accepted as giving effective prophylaxis against ventricular dysrhythmias occurring after recent myocardial infarction. Patients can be classified into 'slow' and 'fast' acetylators of procainamide. Knowledge of acetylator status is helpful in determining the dose of procainamide necessary to attain effective steady-state plasma levels while avoiding toxic ones. Acetylator status cannot be assessed accurately using sulphadimidine when the patients are also taking procainamide.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.


Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.
