University of Guelph researchers have found the location and effect of abnormal heart proteins that can cause cardiac failure, a discovery that points to potential new ways to treat the most costly health problem in the world. The study appears today in PLoS ONE, a peer-reviewed international journal published by the Public Library of Science. It is available online: http://dx.plos.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0036821 "In order to cure heart disease, you have to understand its fundamental...

Singapore, Apr 30, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - Scientists have discovered that they can dramatically increase the life span of mice with progeria (premature ageing disease) and heart disease (caused by Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy) by reducing levels of a protein called SUN1. This research was done by A*STAR's Institute of Medical Biology (IMB) in collaboration with their partners at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in the United States and the Institute of Cellular...

New study presented at the World Congress of Cardiology organized by the World Heart Federation Left-ventricular hyper-trabeculation (LVHT) — a feature of certain cardiomyopathies (chronic disease of the heart muscle) — has been found to be more common in black, male athletes according to a new study presented today at the World Congress of Cardiology. A study of 692 athletes carried out in the UK, found that LVHT was more prevalent in athletes compared with non-athletes...

Heart-like cells made in the laboratory from the skin of patients with a common cardiac condition contract less strongly than similarly created cells from unaffected family members, according to researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine. The cells also exhibit abnormal structure and respond only dully to the wave of calcium signals that initiate each heartbeat. The finding used induced pluripotent stem, or iPS, cell technology to create heart-muscle-like cells from the skin...

Researchers say current European guidelines lead to many false positives, recommend including race-specific criteria Many athletes undergo cardiac screening to detect possible heart conditions before being allowed to participate in student or professional sports. Current European screening guidelines, which are based on data from white athletes, can lead to the over-investigation and potential false disqualification of healthy athletes of African or Afro-Caribbean descent, according to...

Some patients with advanced heart failure caused by cardiomyopathy, the deterioration of function of the heart muscle, are getting a new lease on life thanks to an innovative treatment program at Jewish Hospital, a part of KentuckyOne Health, and the University of Louisville. Led by Emma Birks, M.D., Ph.D., FRCP, director of the Jewish Hospital Heart Failure, Transplant and Mechanical Support Program, the program treats advanced heart failure patients who have left ventricular assist...

Gene alterations that shorten the body's largest protein could improve diagnosis, treatment of dilated cardiomyopathy, a familial heart disease For decades, researchers have sought a genetic explanation for idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), a weakening and enlargement of the heart that puts an estimated 1.6 million Americans at risk of heart failure each year. Because idiopathic DCM occurs as a familial disorder, researchers have long searched for genetic causes, but for most...

The English Cocker Spaniel is a hunting dog, used to drive game toward the guns. This breed has been around for over 500 years. During the mid 1800s, several types of dogs were classified as Cockers; however the breeds were reclassified later in the late 1800s once breed standards were developed. There are two types of Cocker Spaniel, the American and the English. These were shown together until 1936, when the English Cocker received status as a separate breed. The two somewhat resemble each...
