Introduction: What they say

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.

What we say

On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-price-100cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Molecular therapy for Myocardial Infarction: PPARδ improves myocardial function after myocardial infarction via  up-regulation of PNUTS

From Significance of the study to Public health relevance:

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 due to ischemic heart disease; 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 drug.

From Research Findings to Therapeutic Opportunity

This study suggests a small molecule-based cardiac regeneration therapy. PPARδ (Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) δ), by increasing the expression of its target gene, it may increase the expression of PNUTS. Thereby, it may: (1) inhibit DNA damage responses, (2) inhibit telomere shortening; and (3) promote cardiomyocyte survival/regeneration (figure 1).

ppard-increases-pnuts-expressionThus, by treating cardiac patients with PPARδ activators, one may prevent ageing-associated (or, stress-associated) decline in cardiac function. Together, this study suggests that “PPARδ or its activators or PPARδ activators plus any of the known drugs that prevent/improve myocardial infarction” can be used to improve myocardial function and prevent myocardial infarction.
