Introduction: What they say

A recent study from the Department of Biological Regulation, Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot 76100, Israel shows that “ERBB2 triggers mammalian heart regeneration by promoting cardiomyocyte dedifferentiation and proliferation.” This study was published, in the 6 April  2015 issue of the journal “Nature cell biology” (the number 1 journal in “Cell biology” research with an impact factor of 20.761)by Prof Tzahor ED’Uva G, and others.


What we say

On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Molecular Hydrogen therapy for Regenerating the lost cardiomyocytes in Myocardial patients: Hydrogen-rich water increases the expression of ERBB2/Her2 and promotes dedifferentiation  of cardiomyocytes via down regulation of its target gene  [easy_payment currency=”USD”]


From significance of the study to Public health relevance

Given that: (1)  cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide; (2) the raise of death rate, due to cardiovascular disease, has increased from  123 lakhs in 1990 to 173 lakhs in 2013; (3) 85% of people over 80 years are susceptible to cardiovascular diseases;(4) in India, in 2004, 14.6 lakhs deaths (14% of total deaths) were due to ischemic heart disease; (3) the death due to cardiovascular disease is higher in low-to-middle income countries compared to developed countries; (4) the global economic cost spent in the treatment of cardiovascular disease in 2011 was little more than 10 billion US dollars; (5) an alarming number of people, such as 230 lakhs people, will die from cardiovascular diseases each year by 2030, there is an urgent need to find: (i) a way to induce regeneration of cardiomyocytes that were lost in Myocardial patients; (ii) a cheaper alternative to the existing expensive drugs; and (iv) a side-effect-free Natural product-based drug.


From research findings to Therapeutic opportunity

This study suggests a molecular hydrogen water-based cardiac regeneration therapy. Hydrogen-rich water, by decreasing the expression of its target gene, it may: (1) increase ERBB2/Her2 expression; (2) induce cardiomyocyte (CM) dedifferentiation and proliferation; and (3) cardiomyocyte (CM) redifferentiation and regeneration (fig.1).  Thus,  by drinking Hydrogen-rich water, one may delay cardiac ageing; and prevent myocardial infarction.

Based on this finding, physicians/cardiologists may consider adopting Hydrogen-rich water therapy, in the treatment of myocardial dysfunction, to promote cardiomyocyte regeneration and repair.
