Mouse Studies Shed Light on How Protein Controls Heart Failure

Heart_Light_iStock_52252694.jpg

A new study on two specially bred strains of mice has illuminated how abnormal addition of the chemical phosphate to a specific heart muscle protein may sabotage the way the protein behaves in a cell, and may damage the way the heart pumps blood around the body.

Exercise Nerve Response in Type 1 Diabetes Worsens Over Time

A new study finds that late-stage type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) weakens the autonomic reflex that regulates blood pressure during exercise, impairing circulation, nerve function and exercise tolerance.

Saving Hearts After a Heart Attack: Overexpression of a Cell-Cycle Activator Gene Enhances Repair of Dead Heart Muscle

RS15005_Jianyi_Zhang-scr.jpg

Biomedical engineers report significant in repairing a damaged heart after a heart attack, using grafted heart-muscle cells to create a repair patch. The key was overexpressing a gene that activates the cell-cycle of the grafted muscle cells, so they grow and divide more than control grafted cells.

One in Five Witness Someone Collapse Who Requires CPR but the Majority Do Not Act

An estimated one in five adults in the UK witness someone collapse who needs immediate CPR, yet the majority of people do not act, according to new research funded by the British Heart Foundation. Researchers at the University of Warwick carried out a survey of 2,000 people across the country to find out how likely people are to witness a life-threatening cardiac arrest. In addition to the vast numbers of people who have seen someone suffer a cardiac arrest, they also found that people were nearly three times more likely to perform CPR if they had received training
