|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Vasovagal Syncope Postural Tachycardia Syndrome||Drug: Phenylephrine Drug: L-Ng-monomethyl Arginine (L-NMMA)||Early Phase 1|
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Estimated Enrollment :||90 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Single Group Assignment|
|Masking:||None (Open Label)|
|Official Title:||Mechanisms of Vasovagal Syncope|
|Study Start Date :||February 2013|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||February 2019|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||February 2019|
|Experimental: Phenylephrine and L-Ng-monomethyl Arginine (L-NMMA)||
Phenylephrine dose-response comprises infusion of 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4 micrograms/kg/min for 10 min at each dose.
If bloods pressure increases by 30% or if heart rate decreases below 40 beats per minute we will stop infusion.
Drug: L-Ng-monomethyl Arginine (L-NMMA)
Systemic L-NMMA is infused as a 500μg/kg/min loading dose for 15 min followed by a 50μg/kg/min maintenance dose for the remainder of the experiment.
- Heart rate and blood pressure in response to Lower Body Negative Pressure(LBNP) [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
- Adrenergic neurotransmission as measured by Muscle Sympathetic Nerve Activity(MSNA), doppler ultrasound blood flow, venous Norepinephrine in response to Phenylephrine infusion [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
