Reportedly, by studying mice researchers showed that strengthening the activity of particular immune cells in the heart following a heart attack can guard against having a heart failure, which is an invariably serious condition. The patients having heart failure are exhausted easily and become out of breath from everyday activities as the heart muscle loses the ability to transport sufficient blood to the body. The study—led by researchers from WUSM (Washington University School of Medicine), St. Louis—can pave the way to new treatments that decrease the perils of developing heart failure subsequent to a heart attack, cardiac injury, or severe viral illness. The impairment of the heart muscle frequently causes gradual inflammation, which is the main driver of heart failure.
As per the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), approximately 5.7 Million American adults suffer from heart failure. The study findings were published in the journal JCI Insight. Cardiologist Abhinav Diwan—Associate Professor of Medicine—said, “Heart failure is the major problem, with over half of all patients reporting casualty in just 5 Years of diagnosis. There are treatments that can alleviate symptoms and prolong life, but we need to take better steps. Our research is targeted on discovering ways to boost up the immune system to help the heart in healing subsequent to injury, which can avert heart failure from progressing.”
On a similar note, recently, machine learning showed no difference in the symptoms of angina amid men and women. The signs and symptoms of angina—pain that arises in CAD (coronary artery disease)—do not differ considerably between men and women, as per to the outcomes of a remarkable new clinical trial carried by MIT researchers. These findings can help in overturning the prevailing idea that women and men experience angina in a different way, with men encountering (typical angina) symptoms such as pain-type sensations in the chest and women experience symptoms (atypical angina) like breathlessness and pain-type sensations in areas such as the back, arms, and shoulders.
