  • A commentary on the new ESC guidelines on dyslipidaemias
    • Authors: Drexel H.
      Pages: 73 - 74
      Abstract: The new European Society of Cardiology (ESC) guidelines on dyslipidaemia were presented at the ESC Congress in Rome, Italy in August 2016.1 Back in October 2014, a Task Force had convened with the aim to actualize the 2011 guidelines of the ESC. The Task Force was led by Drs Alberico L. Catapano for the European Atherosclerosis Society (EAS) and Ian Graham for the ESC. Furthermore, the European Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation (EACPR) contributed significantly. The main steps by which these guidelines proceeded are summarized here. From the beginning, there was a consensus among the Task Force members that—in contrast to the 2013 ACC/AHA guidelines—there will be lipid target levels; and that data from Mendelian randomization studies will influence the guidelines.

  • Effect of rapid desensitization on platelet inhibition and basophil
    • Authors: Manzo-Silberman S; Nicaise-Roland P, Neukirch C, et al.
      Pages: 77 - 81
      Abstract: AimsTo determine antiplatelet efficacy after desensitization in patients with a history of aspirin hypersensitivity.Methods and resultsWe conducted a case–control study to evaluate the efficacy of aspirin 1 day (D1) and 6–8 weeks (W6–8) after desensitization. We also assessed ex vivo basophil reactivity to aspirin after desensitization. Cases were patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) and documented history of aspirin hypersensitivity who underwent rapid successful oral desensitization to aspirin. Controls were patients with stable CAD without hypersensitivity and receiving aspirin. Among 56 cases, 27 received aspirin for acute coronary syndromes and 29 were treated for stable CAD. Aspirin was effective (defined as light transmission aggregometry induced by arachidonic acid ≤20%) at D1 in 86% of cases (P = 0.045 vs. controls) and in 95% at W6–8, vs. 100% of controls (P = 0.39). Urinary excretion of thromboxane B2 diminished substantially in cases (P

  • Effect of inter-individual blood pressure variability on the progression
           of atherosclerosis in carotid and coronary arteries: a post hoc analysis
           of the NORMALISE and PREVENT studies
    • Authors: Kim J; Park S, Yan P, et al.
      Pages: 82 - 89
      Abstract: AimsTo investigate the relationship between visit-to-visit blood pressure variability (BPV) and the progression of both carotid and coronary artery disease (CAD).Methods and resultsData from two cardiovascular endpoint studies [Norvasc for Regression of Manifest Atherosclerotic Lesions by Intravascular Sonographic Evaluation (NORMALISE) and Prospective Randomized Evaluation of the Vascular Effects of Norvasc Trial (PREVENT)] were analysed separately. Systolic BPV was assessed as within-subject standard deviation of systolic BP across visits from 12-weeks onwards. Follow-up was 24 months (NORMALISE) or 36 months (PREVENT). Any association between BPV and progression of atherosclerosis was assessed using quantitative coronary angiography (QCA), intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), or B-mode ultrasound (depending on study). Patients from NORMALISE (n = 261) and PREVENT (n = 688 for QCA; n = 364 for ultrasound) were stratified within study according to median systolic BPV. No significant difference in change of minimal luminal diameter (by QCA in PREVENT) or change in percent atheroma volume or normalized total atheroma volume (by IVUS in NORMALISE) was detected for subjects with low BPV (BPV

           the progression of carotid artery remodelling'
    • Authors: Nagai M; Dote K, Kato M, et al.
      Pages: 90 - 90
      Abstract: We read the interesting recent article by Kim et al.,1 who reported a significantly greater reduction of maximum carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) in patients with lower visit-to-visit blood pressure (BP) variability among those with existing coronary artery disease (CAD) and well-controlled BP. No clear relationship between visit-to-visit BP variability and IMT progression was detected in association with the use or non-use of calcium channel blockers (CCBs).1

           the progression of carotid artery remodelling: reply
    • Authors: Kim J; Park S, Yan P, et al.
      Pages: 91 - 91
      Abstract: We thank Dr Nagai et al for their comments regarding our recently published article in the European Heart Journal Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy.1 Nagai et al.2 had previously reported that in a cohort 201 high-risk elderly patients, delta of systolic blood pressure (SBP) was associated with maximum intima media thickness (IMT) independent of average SBP and coefficient of variation of SBP was independently associated with ß-stiffness index independent of average BP. The results support the findings from our recent post hoc analysis of the PREVENT study that demonstrated a significant reduction in maximum carotid IMT in patients with low blood pressure variability (BPV  median) after adjusting for treatment, carotid artery segment, baseline maximum carotid IMT, and other baseline and cardiovascular risk factors(95% CI, 0.01–0.11, P = 0.0271).1 However, the tendency was demonstrated for subjects randomized to the amlodipine arm as well as the placebo arm.1 Therefore, we cannot conclude that relationship between BPV and arterial remodelling may differ according to the different types of anti-hypertensive medications. Another interesting finding of the study lies in the fact that the different effect of BPV on vascular remodelling was demonstrated between carotid IMT and coronary artery. In the post hoc analysis of the NORMALISE study, there was no significant difference in the changes of per cent atheroma volume or normalized total atheroma volume for subjects with low BPV (BPV  median), regardless of treatment.1 The difference may be explained by the different effect of oscillating shear stress on atherosclerosis progression according to the type of vessels. Previous studies have reported that large arteries are more vulnerable to intermittent oscillatory shear stress associated with increased pro-oxidant activity as well as expression of cell adhesion molecules.3,4 Whether or not arterial stiffness is a pivotal moderator for the different effect of BPV on vascular remodelling of carotid and coronary arteries, as suggested by Dr Nagai, is an interesting research topic to explore in the future.

  • Hydroxychloroquine for the prevention of recurrent cardiovascular events
           in myocardial infarction patients: rationale and design of the OXI trial
    • Authors: Hartman O; Kovanen PT, Lehtonen J, et al.
      Pages: 92 - 97
      Abstract: BackgroundInflammation of the arterial wall plays a central role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Among patients with rheumatic diseases, anti-rheumatic medication reduces the incidence of cardiovascular (CV) diseases, but only few studies have addressed their cardioprotective effects on patients with no rheumatic diseases. Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is an anti-rheumatic drug commonly used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus. In addition to its anti-inflammatory properties, HCQ reduces cholesterol levels and the risk of type II diabetes, and has also anti-platelet effects.DesignThe OXI trial is an event-driven trial that will randomize 2500 patients hospitalized for myocardial infarction (MI). Participants will receive active HCQ or placebo for at least 12 months, and until 350 CV events are confirmed. The primary trial endpoint is the composite of death, MI, hospitalization for unstable angina, urgent percutaneous coronary intervention, and urgent coronary artery bypass grafting. Secondary trial endpoints are the primary end point plus stroke, the effect of HCQ treatment on lipids, on the incidence of Type 2 diabetes, on the level of haemoglobin A1c, and on inflammatory parameters. A 6 months placebo-controlled safety pilot trial with 200 patients is currently ongoing to assess the safety of HCQ in the setting of MI.SummaryThe OXI trial will determine whether treatment with HCQ, as compared with placebo, will reduce recurrent CV events among MI patients. If positive, then the OXI trial would provide an entirely novel multitarget approach for the secondary prevention of atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases (ACVD).

  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug use is associated with increased risk
           of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: a nationwide case–time–control
    • Authors: Sondergaard KB; Weeke P, Wissenberg M, et al.
      Pages: 100 - 107
      Abstract: AimsNon-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are widely used and have been associated with increased cardiovascular risk. Nonetheless, it remains unknown whether use of NSAIDs is associated with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA).Methods and resultsFrom the nationwide Danish Cardiac Arrest Registry, all persons with OHCA during 2001–10 were identified. NSAID use 30 days before OHCA was categorized as follows: diclofenac, naproxen, ibuprofen, rofecoxib, celecoxib, and other. Risk of OHCA associated with use of NSAIDs was analysed by conditional logistic regression in case–time–control models matching four controls on sex and age per case to account for variation in drug utilization over time. We identified 28 947 persons with OHCA of whom 3376 were treated with an NSAID up to 30 days before OHCA. Ibuprofen and diclofenac were the most commonly used NSAIDs and represented 51.0% and 21.8% of total NSAID use, respectively. Use of diclofenac (odds ratio [OR], 1.50 [95% confidence interval (CI) 1.23–1.82]) and ibuprofen [OR, 1.31 (95% CI 1.14–1.51)] was associated with a significantly increased risk of OHCA. Use of naproxen [OR, 1.29 (95% CI 0.77–2.16)], celecoxib [OR, 1.13 (95% CI 0.74–1.70)], and rofecoxib (OR, 1.28 [95% CI 0.74–1.70)] was not significantly associated with increased risk of OHCA; however, these groups were characterized by few events.ConclusionUse of non-selective NSAIDs was associated with an increased early risk of OHCA. The result was driven by an increased risk of OHCA in ibuprofen and diclofenac users.

  • Treating arrhythmias with adjunctive magnesium: identifying future
           research directions
    • Authors: Baker WL.
      Pages: 108 - 117
      Abstract: Magnesium is the fourth most abundant cation in the human body and is the second most prevalent cation in intracellular tissues. Myocardial cell action potentials are mediated by voltage-dependent Na+, K+, and Ca2+ channels which, when their function is altered, can lead to the genesis of cardiac dysrythmias. Magnesium regulates the movement of ions through these channels within myocardial tissues. The potential ability of magnesium supplementation to prevent and/or treat arrhythmias has been recognized in clinical medicine for years. This includes termination of torsade de pointes, prevention of post-operative atrial fibrillation, acute treatment of atrial fibrillation, and improving the efficacy and safety of antiarrhythmic drugs. Despite what is currently known about magnesium’s therapeutic potential, a number of limitations and gaps to the literature exist. This includes an unclear link between correction of intracellular magnesium concentrations and both mechanistic and clinical outcomes, small sample sizes, varying routes of administration and doses, as well as short follow-up periods. This review highlights these gaps and recommends areas of need for future research.

  • Recent developments in the science of proarrhythmic cardiac safety of new
    • Authors: Turner J; Karnad DR, Cabell CH, et al.
      Pages: 118 - 124
      Abstract: Following marketing withdrawals of several drugs due to proarrhythmic safety concerns, the ICH Guidelines S7B and E14 were released in 2005 and have guided pre-approval cardiac safety assessments in multiple regulatory jurisdictions. While this S7B-E14 paradigm has successfully prevented drugs with unanticipated potential for inducing Torsades de Pointes entering the market, it has unintentionally resulted in the termination of development programs for potentially important compounds that could have exhibited a favourable benefit-risk balance. The Comprehensive In vitro Proarrhythmia Assay paradigm is currently attracting considerable attention as a solution to this problem. While much evaluative work in this new paradigm will be conducted in the non-clinical domain, human electrocardiographic assessments will remain an important component of the overall investigational strategy, possibly being conducted in Phase I trials employing exposure-response modelling. This article reviews recent developments in proarrhythmic cardiac safety assessments of new drugs, their rationales, and current limitations.
