Biomarker guided heart failure treatment versus usual (guideline based) care: take your pick!

p { margin-bottom: 0.1in; line-height: 120%; }a:link { } Recent findings from a multi center trial: Question Does a strategy of titrating therapy to a specific amino-terminal pro–B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) target improve clinical outcomes in high-risk patients with heart failure and reduced ejection fraction?

The ECG and future heart failure risk

p { margin-bottom: 0.1in; line-height: 120%; }a:link { } From a recent paper: Background Several markers detected on the routine 12?lead ECG are associated with future heart failure events. We examined whether these markers are able to separate the risk of heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) from heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF).

Penn Researchers Closer to Uncovering a New Feature in Heart Failure

Each cell in the average human body contains 23 pairs of chromosomes, with four telomeres on each pair. Telomeres cover the end of the chromosome, protecting it from deterioration or fusion with adjacent chromosomes. While there is a...Show More Summary

A New Strategy to Undermine Big Pharma’s Price Gouging Actually Worked

A bioactive molecule may protect against congestive heart failure after heart attacks

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Heart attacks provoke an acute immune response. Leukocytes rush to the heart muscle to remove dead cells and begin building scar tissue. This is followed by a second immune response, the resolving phase that allows healing.

A Bioactive Molecule May Protect Against Congestive Heart Failure After Heart Attacks

A form of the fatty acid-derived bioactive molecule called lipoxin improved heart function after a heart attack, as the lipoxin prompted early activation of the resolving phase of the immune response in mice without altering the acute phase.

A bioactive molecule may protect against congestive heart failure after heart attacks

(University of Alabama at Birmingham) Researchers show that giving mice a form of the fatty acid-derived bioactive molecule called lipoxin improved heart function after a heart attack, as the lipoxin prompted early activation of the resolving phase of the immune response without altering the acute phase.
