A limitation of this review is that it investigates a sampling of issues related to adverse effects and poisonings due to calcium channel
The University of Washington study suggested that if the patients were taking calcium channel
blockers, 16 rather than 10 might suffer a heart attack.
2 inhibitors were developed by world experts in T-type calcium channels
The two calcium channel
blockers preserved patients' exercise capacity: Mean V[O.
A: I recommend that all patients who take calcium channel
blockers like nifedipine also supplement with folic acid and vitamin B complex.
The researchers recently discovered a novel voltage-gated calcium channel
in the tails of mammalian sperm (SN: 10/13/01, p.
More recently, calcium channel

blockers are excellent smooth muscle relaxers.
The problems are serious enough that Ciancio will ask doctors to switch patients with swollen gums from calcium channel

Tau Therapeutics, a privately held company based in Charlottesville, VA, is a clinical stage company developing oncology drugs for solid tumors that selectively inhibit the T-type calcium channel

More than 33,000 patients with high blood pressure were randomly assigned to take either a diuretic (chlorthalidone) or one of two newer drugs, a calcium channel
blocker (amlodipine) or an ACE inhibitor (lisinopril).
ASCOT (the Anglo-Scandinavian Cardiac Outcomes Trial) randomized nearly 20,000 hypertensive subjects with three additional cardiovascular risk factors to antihypertensive therapy with a calcium channel
blocker-based regimen using amlodipine, with the ACE inhibitor perindopril added as needed, or to a beta-blocker-based therapy featuring atenolol with or without the diuretic bendroflumethiazide.
