'Exercise pill' could potentially help people with heart failure

Conclusion The protein hCT1 caused heart muscles to grow in a more healthy way in rodents with heart failure. When treatment stopped, the heart went back to its original condition – something that does not happen when the heart grows in a dysfunctional way. There is currently no cure for heart failure and treatment is only available for keeping symptoms under control. Therefore, this very promising early-stage research with potential for developing a drug for people with heart failure, has huge implications. However, it is important to remember that as this is experimental laboratory research, there are many more stages and hurdles to clear before a drug could become available. Something that works for rats and mice will not necessarily work for humans as we are anatomically different and biological processes do not happen in exactly the same way. It may also cause future side effects that were not apparent in these short-term laboratory experiments. If you have been diagnosed with heart failure, follow your doctor's advice on how you can relieve your symptoms, reduce your risk of complications and improve your overall quality of life.

Abstract Diuretics are commonly prescribed for treatment in patients with hypertension, edema, or heart failure. Studies on hypertensive and salt-losing disorders and on urea transporters have contributed to better understanding of mechanisms of renal salt and water reabsorption and their regulation. Proteins involved in the regulatory pathways are emerging targets for diuretic and aquaretic therapy. Integrative high-throughput screening, protein structure analysis, and chemical modification have identified promising agents for preclinical testing in animals. These include WNK-SPAK inhibitors, ClC-K channel antago...

Authors: Maisch B Abstract The individual amount of alcohol consumed acutely or chronically decides on harm or benefit to a person's health. Available data suggest that one to two drinks in men and one drink in women will benefit the cardiovascular system over time, one drink being 17.6 ml 100 % alcohol. Moderate drinking can reduce the incidence and mortality of coronary artery disease, heart failure, diabetes, ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke. More than this amount can lead to alcoholic cardiomyopathy, which is defined as alcohol toxicity to the heart muscle itself by ethanol and its metabolites. Histo...
