This article outlines the development of the first cardiac implant made from graphene, which is thinner than a single strand of hair yet still functions like a classical pacemaker. It melds softly to the heart to simultaneously sense and treat irregular heartbeats, making it ideal for conforming to soft, dynamic…

A newly developed drug displays potential in treating both heart failure and the related sleep apnea.
US researchers use new imaging technique to see cardiac reactions to noradrenaline, the ‘fight or flight’ hormone.
UAB researchers have found that adding TBX20 to the reprogramming cocktail MGT 133 promoted cardiac reprograming.
New research by US institutions in pigs shows that knocking down a particular signalling pathway after heart failure renews heart tissue.
A group of researchers has found a drug candidate named TRV027 that can increase the cardiac contractility of neonatal mice.
Research determined macrophages’ role in forming a permanent cardiac scar after a heart attack, the researchers suggest altering this behaviour may make the scar temporary and allow restoration of heart function.
A new study has shown that restoring the amount of the kinase, HIPK2, in a kinase-depleted mouse model rescued it from heart failure and identifies HIPK2 as a novel regulator of heart failure progression.
A combination of heart cells derived from human stem cells could lead to developing a treatment for heart failure.
A biomarker has been discovered for the most common type of heart failure - heart failure with preserved ejection fraction...
A team of researchers have demonstrated a new way to sequence proteins that are much more sensitive than existing technology, identifying individual protein molecules rather than requiring millions of molecules at a time
A 3D map of genetic interactions in CVD could aid researchers investigating future treatments for heat attacks, heart failure and heart rhythm disorders.
Researchers are now able to use induced pluripotent stem cells to form a model of human adult-like cardiac muscle...
Reducing a protein found in the mitochondria of cardiac muscle cells initiates cardiac dysfunction and heart failure...
