Chicago, IL – January 2019 – AltaThera has donated vials of IV sotalol to the Veterinary Program at the University of Pennsylvania to better understand heart arrhythmias in dogs.

As stated by Professor Anna Gelzer, PhD, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, “Boxers are at an increased risk of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC), an inherited disease of the heart muscle. We are interested to test [IV sotalol’s] ability to suppress arrhythmia inducibility during an electrophysiologic study.”

AltaThera remains committed to research in all areas of cardiac arrhythmia and is excited about Dr. Gelzer’s clinical program.”
