Heart disease raises the likelihood of depression, and vice versa. New research moves closer to understanding the mechanism that explains this link.
A molecule that stops two proteins from interacting and impairing heart function halted heart failure and improved heart pumping capacity in rats.
Cell death from a heart attack damages heart muscle. Blocking MAP4K4 — a protein that is key to this process — greatly reduced heart injury in mice.
New research suggests that significant fluctuations in weight may negatively affect a woman’s ability to control her heart disease risk factors.
