Professor at Texas Tech University's Department of Biological Sciences has been granted an Innovative Project Award by the American Heart Association to delve into the intricacies of atherosclerosis, a condition responsible for artery thickening and severe health complications.
Using gene therapy, the researchers corrected abnormal heart rhythms by restoring a protein that heart cells need to establish connections with one another.
US researchers have discovered that cancer treatments or anthracycline drugs, cause cardiovascular disease by activating a key inflammatory signalling pathway.
New research has found that immune cells produce a chemical messenger that prevents heart disease–related inflammation
The discovery of an inflammatory pathway promoting brain ageing and cognitive decline could lead to new treatments for age-related conditions.
Researchers have obtained the crystal structure of the lipin enzyme, the regulator of triglyceride production, which they say could inform research into heart disease, obesity and diabetes.
Gene editing using the CRISPR system has been established as the most powerful tool in the search for new drugs and is now being exploited for therapeutic purposes. Here, Pushpanathan Muthuirulan discusses the promises and wider opportunities of using CRISPR technology to open up the possibility of large-scale screening of…
New study finds immunotherapy reduces cardiac fibrosis and restores heart function in mice after cardiac injury.
RNA analysis of 20,000 cardiac cells from heart tissue in both ordinary and deceased mice showed an insight to the development of heart disease...
New research on how cannabis use alters eating behaviour could lead to treatments for appetite loss in chronic illness...
A 3D map of genetic interactions in CVD could aid researchers investigating future treatments for heat attacks, heart failure and heart rhythm disorders.
Scientists may now be able to predict whether carrying a specific genetic variant increases a person's risk for disease using gene editing and stem cell technologies...
Reversing modifications in diseased heart muscle cell struts called microtubules (MT) can lessen the stiffness and improve the beating strength of these cells isolated from transplant patients with heart failure.
