What we say:

Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: A glass of milk a day keeps the cardiac diseases at bay: Cardiac rejuvenation therapy: Cow or human’s milk  suppresses tumor suppressor INK4a/p16 expression, and inhibits dilated cardiomyopathy via up regulation of its target gene


From the Significance of the study to Public health relevance:

Given that: (1) cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide; (2) Dilated cardiomyopathy is the leading cause of Heart failure; (3) the raise  of death rate, due to cardiovascular disease, has increased from 12.3 million in 1990 to 17.3 million in 2013; (4) 13% of cardiovascular disease occur due to  uncontrolled high blood pressure; (5) in India, in 2004, 14.6 lakhs deaths (14% of total deaths) were due to ischemic heart disease; (6) 85% of people over  80 years are susceptible to cardiovascular diseases; (7) the global economic cost spent in the treatment of cardiovascular disease in 2011 was little more than 10 billion US dollars; (8) the death due to cardiovascular disease is higher in low-to-middle income countries compared to developed countries; and (9) 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 cure to diseases, as mentioned above, leading to cardiovascular disease; (ii) a way to induce regeneration of adult cardiomyocytes that were lost in Myocardial patients; (iii) 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, that  Cow or human’s milk, by increasing the expression of its target gene, it may increase the expression of oncoprotein BMI-1 and suppress the expression of tumor suppressor  and the ageing marker INK4a/p16 (figure 1 ).

Figure 1. Mechanistic insight into how Milk may function as a cardioprotective agent. Milk inhibits dilated cardiomyopathy and heart failure via down regulation of ageing/senescence marker INK4a

Figure 2. Milk consumption may attenuate senescence, and dilated cardiomyopathy through down regulation of INK4a.


Thereby, it may: (1) inhibit cardiac senescence; (2) increase of regenerative potential in aged tissues; and (3) improve ventricular dimensions and contractility.

Thus, (1) by encouraging myocardial patients to consume cow’s milk, one may, in the long-term, prevent Dilated cardiomyopathy and ageing-associated (or, stress-associated) decline in cardiac function; and (2) pharmacological formulations encompassing “milk powder or its constituents, either alone or in combination with any of the known drugs used to treat cardiomyopathy,” may be used to treat dilated cardiomyopathy and heart failure (figure 1).
