A recent study from the Institute for Cardiovascular Regeneration, Centre of Molecular Medicine, Frankfurt, Germany shows that “MicroRNA-34a regulates cardiac ageing and function.” This study was published in the March 7 2013 Nature by Prof Dimmler, Boon, and others.
On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Massage therapy for ageing-related cardiac diseases: Massage improves myocardial function and inhibits cardiac ageing via up regulation of PNUTS/ PPP1R10 (Serine/threonine-protein phosphatase 1 regulatory subunit 10). Massage, by increasing the expression of PNUTS/PPP1R10 in cardiomyocytes, it may: (1) improve cardiac function after myocardial infarction; (2) and prevent ageing/stress-associated decline in cardiac function. Together, this study reinforces the notion–with a detailed mechanistic basis–that massage therapy may be used as an adjuvant therapy for cardiac patients. Therefore, physicians may consider recommending their cardiac patients to under go massage therapy.
