Cedars-Sinai Medical Center to Expand Clinical Safety and Effectiveness Evaluation of Cardiac Cell Therapy After Winning $7.3 Million California Institute for Regenerative Medicine Grant

Researchers from the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute and the Cedars-Sinai Department of Medicine are expanding their ongoing evaluation of a novel cell-based therapeutic candidate into the area of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). This work will be supported by a recently-awarded $7.3 million grant from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine.

The RECHORD trial allows cardiovascular surgeons to replace damaged string-like tendons, called chordae, through a small incision while the heart is beating. PinnacleHealth is one of only 20 sites in the nation and the only hospital in Pennsylvania selected to participate in the trial. Up to 450 patients will be enrolled into the randomized trial.

Cigarette Smoke Exposure Increases Scar Tissue in the Kidney and Heart, Study Finds

Smoking may lead to fibrosis in the heart and kidneys and can worsen existing kidney disease, according to a new study. The research team suggests that exposure to cigarette smoke negatively affects genetic messaging that controls tissue scarring.

Research Says: Patients with Cancer History Experiencing Severe Heart Attacks Benefit From Cardiac Treatment

One in 10 patients who come to the hospital with the most severe type of heart attack have a history of cancer, showing that this is an emerging subgroup of heart patients, according to Mayo Clinic research published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings. In addition, the study found that these patients have a three times higher risk of noncardiac death. Meanwhile, their risk of cardiac death is not higher ― both at the time of their acute heart attack and over long-term follow-up.

Mayo Clinic Finds Myocarditis Caused by Infection on Rise Globally

— Myocarditis, an assortment of heart disorders often caused by infection and inflammation, is known to be difficult to diagnose and treat. But the picture of who is affected is becoming a little clearer. Men may be as much as twice as likely as women to develop severe and possibly fatal reactions. And the risk of sudden cardiovascular death in the young is relatively high.

Rutgers Study Finds That Generation X at Greater Risk of Stroke Than Baby Boomers

Older baby boomers—those born between 1945 and 1954—are the “stroke-healthiest generation,” according to a Rutgers study that found the lowest incidence of ischemic stroke in this age group within the past 20 years. In contrast, the rate of stroke more than doubled in Generation X, people born between 1965 and 1974, during the same time period.

Hypertension and prehypertension in children often go undiagnosed, according to a new study published today in Pediatrics. The study focused on children with abnormal blood pressures across the United States, and is the first to show a widespread underdiagnosis of these conditions by pediatricians in children ages 3 to 18.
