cardiovascular disease (CVD)
New research has found that immune cells produce a chemical messenger that prevents heart disease–related inflammation
A new study in the US has used a computer model to reveal the mechanism of action of lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 – a biomarker for cardiovascular disease.
Advances in genomic medicine are playing an increasingly important role in the field of cardiology. Better analysis and understanding of patient genomic and epigenomic information can enable more personalised patient treatment and medical intervention. Here, Professor John Giannios considers the potential to use genomic medicine to prevent, monitor, diagnose and…
According to new research, the protein ALDH4A1 is a possible therapeutic target and diagnostic biomarker for cardiovascular disease.
A researcher has revealed that angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEI) and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) may increase the risk of severe lung complications in COVID-19.
Research into the structure of the drug-integrin complex has enabled the creation of drugs which inhibit integrin as effectively as currently used compounds, without causing excessive bleeding.
We are on the precipice of realising the true potential of genomics studies. Following completion of the Human Genome Project six years ago, huge strides have been made in understanding how the genome works, shedding light on disease pathogenesis and forging therapeutic efforts. In this article, Pushpanathan Muthuirulan explains how…
