What they say:
A study from the University of California, La Jolla, California, USA shows that “Notch3 signaling promotes the development of pulmonary arterial hypertension.” This study was published, in the 15 November 2009 issue of the journal “Nature Medicine”[the number 1 journal in General Medicine with an I.F of 28.054], by Prof. Thistlethwaite PA, Li X and others.
What we say:
On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Chocolate your way to stay free of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH): Monomeric cocoa catechins, one of the components of dark chocolates, inhibits the development of pulmonary arterial hypertension via down-regulation of its target gene Notch3
The significance of the study:
This study suggests, for the first time, that Monomeric cocoa catechin, by increasing the expression of its target gene, it may decrease the expression of Notch3 and its target gene Hes-5 (Fig.1). Thereby, it may inhibit and promote, respectively, proliferation and differentiation of smooth muscle cells. And, thereby, prevent pulmonary hypertension (Figure 1). Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing “Monomeric cocoa catechin or its analogs, either alone or in combination with other drugs,” may be used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) (Fig. 2). Together, by treating pulmonary hypertensive patients with monomeric cocoa catechin, one may prevent pulmonary arterial hypertension.
