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:   A glass of milk a day keeps the cardiac diseases at bay: Regenerative therapy for regaining the lost cardiomyocytes in Myocardial patients:  Human or Cow’s milk 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: 

This study suggests, for the first time, how human or Cow’s milk may protect against cardiovascular diseases.

Human or Cow’s milk, by increasing 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 commonly consumed milk  may promote cardiac dedifferentiation and regeneration. Human or Cow’s milk, by increasing the expression of its target gene, it may upregulate the expression of ERRB2/HER2 and promote cardiac dedifferentiation and regeneration

Figure 2. Human or Cow’s milk may promote cardiac regeneration through induction of Her2/Erbb2

Given the mechanistic basis of how consumption of human or cow’s milk may aid in cardiomyocyte survival and regeneration,  medical practitioners and cardiologists may consider encouraging their cardiac patients to consume milk, as it may aid in cardiomyocyte regeneration following myocardial infarction
