• Cardiotoxicity of Doxorubicin. A Study of Methods and Protective Interventions in Rat Models 

      Hole, Lisa Drange (Doctoral thesis, 2015-03-13)
      Introduction: The clinical use of anthracyclines, like doxorubicin, is a double-edged sword. On one side, anthracyclines play an undisputed key role in the treatment of many neoplastic diseases. On the other side; ...
    • Diazoxide protects against doxorubicin-induced cardiotoxicity in the rat 

      Hole, Lisa Drange; Larsen, Terje H.; Fossan, Kjell Ove; Limé, Fredrik; Schjøtt, Jan (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-05-27)
      Aim: Chemotherapy with doxorubicin is limited by cardiotoxicity. Free radical generation and mitochondrial dysfunction are thought to contribute to doxorubicin-induced cardiac failure. In this study we wanted to investigate ...

    • Morphine enhances doxorubicin-induced cardiotoxicity in the rat 

      Hole, Lisa Drange; Larsen, Terje H.; Fossan, Kjell Ove; Limé, Fredrik; Schjøtt, Jan (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-09)
      Interventions to reduce the cardiotoxicity of doxorubicin are clinically relevant. Pharmacological preconditioning mimicking ischemic preconditioning has been demonstrated with morphine and represents an acceptable clinical ...
    • Myocardial injury in a 41-year-old male treated with methylphenidate: a case report 

      Hole, Lisa Drange; Schjøtt, Jan (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-07-29)
      Background: Elevated cardiac troponin levels are consistent with the diagnosis of an acute coronary syndrome, but may also represent adverse drug reactions. Psychostimulating drugs raise both blood pressure and heart rate, ...
    • A short-time model to study relevant indices of cardiotoxicity of doxorubicin in the rat 

      Hole, Lisa Drange; Larsen, Terje H.; Fossan, Kjell Ove; Limé, Fredrik; Schjøtt, Jan (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2013-07)
      Aim: Short-time models (STM) to study the cardiotoxicity (acute or chronic) of doxorubicin in rats are of interest to assess protective interventions and pathways. STM promotes more ethical animal treatment with less stress, ...
