Antibiotic that damages hearts

According to #biomedical #researchers at the University of British Columbia,  fluoroquinolone-based #antibiotics can cause damage to the #heart. This research has been published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology (h-index: 394). According to the team of scientists, fluoroquinolone-based #antibiotic #medicines trigger blood backflow into the heart. The database included records of 9 million patients and 12,505 cases of valvular regurgitation were detected. Researchers are now advising physicians to prescribe non-fluoroquinolone antibiotics to ensure minimal side effects.
