What they say

A recent study from the Institute for Cardiovascular Regeneration, Centre of Molecular Medicine, Frankfurt, Germany shows that “MicroRNA-34a regulates cardiac ageing and function.” This study was published, in the 7 March  2013 issue of Nature,  by Prof Dimmler, Boon, and others.


What we say

On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Natural product-derived combinatorial therapy for functional recovery after Myocardial Infarction and prevent cardiac failure: A pharmaceutical mixture encompassing Gambogic acid (GA) and (-)-EpiGalloCatechin-3-Gallate (EGCG) [GA+EGCG] inhibits DNA damage responses, induces telomerase expression, inhibits telomere shortening, and promotes cardiomyocyte survival after myocardial infarction, via up regulation of PNUTS, Telomerase & MiR-199

 


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 provides a natural product-based combinatorial therapy for recovery from myocardial infarction and protect against cardiac failure. A pharmaceutical mixture encompassing Gambogic acid (GA) and (-)-EpiGalloCatechin-3-Gallate (EGCG) [GA+EGCG], by increasing the expression of its target genes, it may increase the expression of PNUTS (fig.1)Thereby, it may: (1) inhibit DNA damage responses, (2) increase telomerase expression, (3) inhibit telomere shortening; (4) promote cardiomyocyte survival/regeneration; (5) promote insulin sensitivity; (6) decelerate ageing; and (7) extend life span (fig. 1). 

Figure 1. Mechanistic insights into how a pharmaceutical mixture encompassing Gambogic acid (GA) and (-)-EpiGalloCatechin-3-Gallate (EGCG) induces the expression PNUTS and Telomerase to promote Cardiac regeneration/survival

Figure 2. Mechanistic insights into how GAEGCG induces the expression PNUTS and MiR-199 and promotes functional recovery after myocardial infarction.

Thus, by treating myocardial patients with GAEGCG, one may prevent ageing-associated (or, stress-associated) decline in cardiac function and promote functional recovery after myocardial infarction.  And thereby prevent cardiac failure. Together, this study suggests that pharmacological formulations encompassing “Gambogic acid (GA) and (-)-EpiGalloCatechin-3-Gallate (EGCG) [GA+EGCG] or their analogues, either alone or in combination with other cardiac protective drugs”  may be used to improve cardiac function after myocardial infarction and prevent cardiac failure.  (Fig. 1).
