Resolvin D-1 Limits Kidney Damage After Heart Attacks

University of Alabama at Birmingham

Lingering inflammation after heart attack can lead heart failure. It can also claim another victim — the kidneys. New research shows that a bioactive compound called resolvin D-1, injected as a therapeutic dose, is able to limit this collateral damage in the kidneys, as tested in an animal model.

Women Once Considered Low Risk for Heart Disease Shown to Have Evidence of Previous Heart Attack Scars

Cedars-Sinai

Women who complain about chest pain often are reassured by their doctors that there is no reason to worry because their angiograms show that the women don’t have blockages in the major heart arteries, a primary cause of heart attacks in men. But a National Institutes of Health study led by investigators at the Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center in the Smidt Heart Institute, shows that about 8% of those women actually have scars on their heart that indicate they experienced a heart attack.

Number of Obese Years Not — Just Obesity — a Distinct Risk Factor for Heart Damage

Johns Hopkins Medicine

In an analysis of clinical data collected on more than 9,000 people, Johns Hopkins researchers have shown that the number of years spent overweight or obese appear to “add up” to a distinct risk factor that makes those with a longer history of heaviness more likely to test positive for a chemical marker of so-called “silent” heart damage than those with a shorter history.

African Americans with Atrial Fibrillation at Significantly Higher Risk for Stroke Compared to Caucasians with the Disease

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

African Americans with atrial fibrillation (AF) – a quivering or irregular heartbeat that can lead to a host of dangerous complications – have a significantly higher risk of stroke than Caucasians with the condition, according to new research published today in HeartRhythm by researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. The new findings build on previous studies examining the impact of race on the risk of developing atrial fibrillation (AF), which is linked to blood clots, stroke, heart failure and other complications. It’s well reported that African Americans have a lower risk of developing AF as compared to Caucasians, but until now, there was little data on the additional risks that come with AF for each race.

New Algorithm Can Pinpoint Mutations Favored by Natural Selection in Large Sections of the Human Genome

University of California San Diego

A team of scientists has developed an algorithm that can accurately pinpoint, in large regions of the human genome, mutations favored by natural selection. The finding provides deeper insight into how evolution works, and ultimately could lead to better treatments for genetic disorders. For example, adaptation to chronic hypoxia at high altitude can suggest targets for cardiovascular and other ischemic diseases.
