Intracellular calcium modulators for cardiac muscle in pathological conditions.

Abstract

This is a brief review of agents that stabilize calcium release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum in cardiac muscle. An excess intracellular calcium concentration (calcium overload) is a common feature in a variety of cardiac cell injuries. Calcium overload elicits diastolic and systolic failure, and is involved in the genesis of arrhythmias. These… (More)
