Cardiac monitoring needed for high-risk breast cancer patients

(HealthDay)—Risk of cardiotoxicity is higher for patients receiving trastuzumab and/or anthracyclines for the treatment of breast cancer, according to a study published in the Aug. 1 issue of JACC: Cardiovascular Imaging. Mariana L. Henry, from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, and colleagues used data from the Truven Health MarketScan (IBM Watson Health, Cambridge, Mass.) database to assess the rate of chemotherapy-related cardiotoxicity and to estimate adherence to recommendations for among 16,456 patients (median age, 56 years) treated with chemotherapy (2009 to 2014).

In cardiac injury, the NSAID carprofen causes dysfunction of the immune system

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs, are commonly used as inflammation blockers worldwide. However, recent clinical data show these painkillers can have serious side effects that create some risk of heart attacks, strokes, and kidney or heart failure. Attention has focused on how NSAIDs may cause dysfunction of the immune system, including disrupting the normal immune response involved after heart injury. This normal response has two stages—the acute phase, where leukocytes from the spleen migrate to the heart's left ventricle to clear out dead heart-muscle cells and form scar tissue, followed by a resolving phase to dampen the acute inflammation.
