Thirty patients (28 males and 2 females) aged 46-68 years with established chronic stable angina were studied in a placebo-controlled double-blind crossover trial to examine the efficacy of oral ticlopidine (an antiplatelet agent) 250 mg twice daily. The baseline mean +/- SEM exercise time of 7.5 +/- 0.5 min rose to 8.1 +/- 0.6 min after 2 weeks of placebo run-in, 8.8 +/- 0.7 min after 4 weeks of double-blind placebo, and to 9.2 +/- 0.6 min with ticlopidine therapy; none of these changes achieved statistical significance. Similarly, time to the development of 1 mm ST-segment depression, maximal ST-segment depression, heart rate, and rate-pressure product failed to show any statistically significant changes during ticlopidine therapy. Ambulatory electrocardiographic monitoring showed that the mean number of episodes of ST-segment depression greater than 1 mm remained unaltered during ticlopidine therapy. Four patients (3 during placebo, 1 during ticlopidine) stopped treatment prematurely because of unstable angina and two because of adverse effects. Our data suggest that ticlopidine has no significant effect on objective indices of myocardial ischemia in patients with chronic stable angina, that placebo has no effect on the obje...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Torsion dystonia is a movement disorder characterized by loss of control of voluntary movements appearing as sustained muscle contractions and/or abnormal postures. Here is the latest research.

Archaeal RNA Polymerase

Archaeal RNA polymerases are most similar to eukaryotic RNA polymerase II but require the support of only two archaeal general transcription factors, TBP (TATA-box binding protein) and TFB (archaeal homologue of the eukaryotic general transcription factor TFIIB) to initiate basal transcription. Here is the latest research on archaeal RNA polymerases.
