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 E, D’Uva E, and others.


What we say: 

On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that:  Regenerative therapy for regaining the lost cardiomyocytes in Myocardial patients: A pharmaceutical mixture encompassing Aripiprazole and Cilostazol increases the expression of ERBB2/Her2 and promotes dedifferentiation  of cardiomyocytes via down regulation of its target gene


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: 

Cilostazol,  a phosphodiesterase inhibitor, is a vasodilator, which is used to alleviate symptoms of intermittent claudication in patients with peripheral vascular disease.  

This study provides, for the first time, mechanistic insights into how Cilostazol, in conjunction with anti-depressant Aripiprazole,  may protect against cardiovascular diseases.

A pharmaceutical mixture encompassing Aripiprazole and Cilostazol, 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 

Figure1. Mechanistic insights into how Aripiprazole and Cilostazol may promote cardiac dedifferentiation and regeneration. Aripiprazole and Cilostazol, by increasing the expression of its target gene, it may upregulate the expression of ERRB2/HER2 and promote cardiac dedifferentiation and regeneration

Figure 2. The chemical structure of Aripiprazole and Cilostazol.

Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing “Aripiprazole and Cilostazol  or their analogues, either alone or in combination with other drugs “ may be used to promote cardiomyocyte regeneration following myocardial infarction
