CHOP researchers highlight advances in pediatric heart disease at 2017 AHA scientific sessions
(Children's Hospital of Philadelphia) Physician-researchers from the Cardiac Center at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) recently presented new findings on pediatric cardiovascular disease at the American Heart Association's Scientific Sessions 2017 in Anaheim, Calif. Among many abstracts presented were research on racial disparities in bystander CPR methods in children with sudden cardiac arrest, and findings that children with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy may be at risk for sudden cardiac death.

Fruit fly muscles with a hypertrophic cardiomyopathy mutation don't relax properly
(Johns Hopkins Medicine) Using fruit flies, Johns Hopkins researchers have figured out why a particular inherited human heart condition that is almost always due to genetic mutations causes the heart to enlarge, thicken and fail. They found that one such mutation interferes with heart muscle's ability to relax after contracting, and prevents the heart from fully filling with blood and pumping it out.

Researchers successfully edit 1st human embryo with CRISPR
Scientists have successfully edited genes in a human embryo, correcting a disease-causing mutation to prevent the defect from being inherited. The groundbreaking process, covered in a paper published yesterday in Nature, was confirmed last week by the Oregon Health and Science University, which collaborated with the Salk Institute and Korea’s Institute for Basic Science on the task. To edit the genetic mutation, in this case for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, researchers used a technique known as CRISPR-Cas9. The CRISPR-Cas9 technique operates as a sort of ‘molecular scissors’ which can trim away unwanted p...

Gene editing used to repair diseased genes in embryos
Conclusion Currently, genetically-inherited conditions like hypertrophic cardiomyopathy cannot be cured, only managed to reduce the risk of sudden cardiac death. For couples where one partner carries the mutated gene, the only option to avoid passing it onto their children is pre-implantation genetic diagnosis. This involves using IVF to create embryos, then testing a cell of the embryo to see whether it carries the healthy or mutated version of the gene. Embryos with healthy versions of the gene are then selected for implantation in the womb. Problems arise if too few or none of the embryos have the correct version of the...

Pioneering discovery leads to potential preventive treatment for sudden cardiac death
(University of Vermont) Roughly 15 years ago, a team of Vermont researchers discovered the precise malfunction of a specific protein in the heart that leads to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a common culprit in cases of sudden death in young athletes. A team of Harvard scientists and colleagues used some of these findings to develop a possible treatment to prevent this inherited disease that can cause the heart to thicken and stop pumping blood effectively, leading to heart failure.

[Perspective] Throttling back the heart's molecular motor
A young athlete collapses and dies during competition. Autopsy reveals an enlarged heart with thickened walls in which the cardiac muscle cells are in disarray and surrounded by fibrotic tissue. Until 1990, the cause of such sudden death was unknown. This devastating condition, called familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), was eventually linked to a mutation in myosin (1), the heart's molecular motor. Today, more than 300 separate HCM-causing mutations have been identified throughout the myosin molecule. On page 617 of this issue, Green et al. (2) describe a small molecule that binds to myosin and inhibits its activit...

[Report] A small-molecule inhibitor of sarcomere contractility suppresses hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in mice
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is an inherited disease of heart muscle that can be caused by mutations in sarcomere proteins. Clinical diagnosis depends on an abnormal thickening of the heart, but the earliest signs of disease are hyperdynamic contraction and impaired relaxation. Whereas some in vitro studies of power generation by mutant and wild-type sarcomere proteins are consistent with mutant sarcomeres exhibiting enhanced contractile power, others are not. We identified a small molecule, MYK-461, that reduces contractility by decreasing the adenosine triphosphatase activity of the cardiac myosin heavy chain. Here ...
