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-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Natural product therapy for Myocardial Infarction: Methyl 3,5-dicaffeoyl quinate (MDQ), found in Kalopanax pictus, Salicornia herbacea L., Aster oharai and Solidago virga-aurea var. gigantean, improves myocardial function after myocardial infarction via  up-regulation of PNUTS


Significance:

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 natural product-based cardiac regeneration therapy. Methyl 3,5-dicaffeoyl quinate (MDQ), 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.

Methyl 3,5-dicaffeoyl quinate (MDQ), found in Castor-aralia (kalopanax-pictus), among others, as indicated below, promotes Cardiomyocyte survival and protects against myocardial infarction via up-regulation of PNUTS

Thus, by treating myocardial patients with Methyl 3,5-dicaffeoyl quinate (MDQ), one may prevent ageing-associated (or, stress-associated) decline in cardiac function. Together, this study suggests that pharmacological formulationsencompassing Methyl 3,5-dicaffeoyl quinate (MDQ) or its analogues”  may be used to improve cardiac function after myocardial infarction.
