A probiotic-based Cardiac rejuvenation therapy: Probiotic Lactobacillus Brevis suppresses tumor suppressor INK4a/p16 expression, and inhibits dilated cardiomyopathy via upregulation of its target gene, 12/October/2018, 2.04 am

The tiny probiotic Lactobacillus gasseri may safeguard your heart against cardiac dysfunction: Probiotic Lactobacillus gasseri SBT2055-based therapy for cardiomyocyte proliferation and heart regeneration: Probiotic Lactobacillus gasseri SBT2055 decreases tumor suppressor Mir-128 and cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor p27 expression, increases SUZ12 expression, increases Cyclin E and CDK2 expression, promotes proliferation/re-entry of postnatal/adult cardiomyocytes, attenuates fibrosis, ameliorates cardiac dysfunction, and promotes heart repair in response to myocardial infarction, via up-regulation of its target gene, 11/Ocotober/2018, 1.03 am

What we say:

Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: A probiotic-based Cardiac rejuvenation therapy: Probiotic Lactobacillus Brevis suppresses tumor suppressor INK4a/p16 expression, and inhibits dilated cardiomyopathy via upregulation 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 Probiotic Lactobacillus brevis, 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 ) in cardiomyocytes.

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 treating myocardial patients with Probiotic Lactobacillus brevis, one may prevent Dilated  cardiomyopathy and ageing-associated (or, stress-associated) decline in cardiac function; and (2) pharmacological formulations encompassing  Probiotic Lactobacillus brevis, either alone or in combination with any of the known drugs that are used to treat cardiomyopathy” may be used to inhibit dilated cardiomyopathy and heart failure (figure 1).
