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 7 March 2013 issue of 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: Small molecule-based Regenerative Stem cell therapy for Myocardial Infarction: Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) aggravate myocardial function via down regulation of PNUTS/PPP1R10 (Serine/threonine-protein phosphatase 1 regulatory subunit 10)
Given that: (1) cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide; (2) in India, in 2004, 14.6 lakhs deaths (14% of total deaths) were: (i) due to ischemic heart disease; and (ii) expected to be doubled by 2015; and (3) the global economic cost spent in the treatment of cardiovascular disease in 2011 was little more than 10 billion US dollars, there is an urgent need to find: (i) a way to induce regeneration of adult cardiomyocytes that were lost in Myocardial patients; (ii) a cheaper alternative to the existing expensive drugs; and (iii) a side-effect-free natural product-based drug.
Increased levels of Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) has been shown to promote: (1) Reactive oxygen species; (2) Inflammation; (3) insulin resistance; (4) pre-mature ageing features; and (5) cardiovascular diseases. AGEs, by increasing the expression of their target gene, they may decrease the expression of PNUTS/PPP1R10. Thereby, they may: (1) promote DNA damage responses, (2) promote telomere shortening; and (3) inhibit cardimyocyte survival/regeneration. Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing “Advanced glycation end product inhibitors”may be used to prevent myocardial infarction.
