An interdisciplinary team of researchers has designed a patch that can limit damage after a heart attack. The patch was successfully tested in rats.
New research in mice uses gene-regulating molecules called microRNAs to repair heart tissue after an adverse cardiovascular event such as a heart attack.
New research examines how five major dietary patterns may affect the risk of developing heart failure among people without heart disease.
A study of data from 36 trials suggests that eating plant-based proteins, such as nuts, instead of red meat may help reduce cardiovascular disease risk.
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.
New research suggests that people with healthy hearts should use exercise as 'preventive medicine' against developing heart disease and heart attacks.
New research, presented at the American Heart Association's Scientific Sessions meeting, finds that heart attacks are no longer an 'old man's disease.'
