Anti-angina drug shows protective effects from carbon monoxide

Anti-angina drug shows protective effects from carbon monoxide – An international research team has found that a common anti-angina drug could help protect the heart against carbon monoxide poisoning. Animal studies have shown that the anti-angina drug ranolazine can significantly reduce the number of deaths from arrhythmias — irregular or abnormally paced heartbeats — that have been triggered by carbon monoxide.(10.1164/rccm.201206-1005PP)
