Peripartum Cardiomyopathy Recovery in Blacks Better in Canada? Peripartum Cardiomyopathy Recovery in Blacks Better in Canada?

In a small Canadian cohort, LVEF recovery after peripartum cardiomyopathy was similar for black women and white women, whereas in a US cohort, black women fared worse, as has been seen before.Medscape Medical News

Major adverse cardiac events (MACE) and markers of cardiovascular capacity have been particularly challenging to interpret due to small size. This meta-analysis is aimed to assess the efficacy of MNC therapy in randomized clinical trials to identify the markers of efficiency...

Cardio-oncology has developed as a new field due to the proliferation of novel cancer therapies that not only have improved outcomes for some types of cancer, but also may lead to various cardiovascular toxicities. Older therapies, such as anthracyclines, are associated with cardiomyopathy as a result of myocyte death at the time of treatment, followed by cardiac remodeling in the years following completion of therapy, and eventually lead to heart failure (HF). In 2019, data are limited on the prevention and treatment of cancer treatment –associated cardiomyopathy, with most interventions extrapolated from general HF...

In this study, we investigate the atomistic details of Keap1-Nrf2 inhibitors by in-depth modeling techniques, including molecular dynamics (MD) simulations, and the path-based free energy method of umbrella sampling (US). The protein–protein interaction (PPI) of Keap1-Nrf2 is implicated in several neurodegenerative diseases like cancer, diabetes, and cardiomyopathy. A better understanding of the five sub-pocket binding sites for Nrf2 (ETGE and DLG motifs) inside the Kelch domain would expedite the inhibitor design process. We selected four protein–ligand complexes with distinct co-crystal ligands and bi...

In this study, we investigated the long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) and messenger RNA (mRNA) expressions in the plasma of patients with DCM and ICM and analyzed the different lncRNA profile between the two groups. The microarray analysis identified 3,222 and 1,911 significantly differentially expressed lncRNAs and mRNAs between DCM and ICM group. The most enriched upregulated functional terms included positive regulation of I-kappaB kinase/nuclear factor-kappaB signaling and regulation of cellular localization, while the top 10 downregulated genes mainly consisted of acid secretion and myosin heavy chain binding. Furthermore, t...
