The exaggerated cardiac arrhythmias in cardiomyopathy induced by L-thyroxine treatment are related to ion channelopathies and to an abnormal endothelin (ET) pathway. It was hypothesized that an increased incidence of ventricular fibrillation (VF) could be mediated by inflammatory factors including the ET pathway, nuclear factor kappa B (NFkappaB), tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNFalpha) and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS). Abnormal expression of NFkappaB, TNFalpha, iNOS and enhanced VF… CONTINUE READING
