Idea Proposed/Formulated by: Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD.
From research findings to Therapeutic opportunity:
Okinawan longevity diet, consumed by long-lived people from an island in Japan, Okinawa, includes turmeric tea, consumed on a daily basis, how consumption of turmeric tea on a daily basis protects against common age-related diseases, including cardiovascular dysfunction, and aids in extending the lifespan, mechanistically, is not clear up until now.
This study suggests, for the first time, that turmeric–derived compound Curcumin promotes heart regeneration and protects against cardiac dysfunction.
This study suggests, for the first time, that Curcumin (Diferuloylmethane), by suppressing the expression of its target gene tumor suppressor gene p38-α, it can: a) promote cardiomyocyte proliferation & regeneration and function; and b) augment stress resistance against hypoxic stress.
Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing “Diferuloylmethane/Curcumin or its analogues, either alone or in combination with other drugs” can be used to promote cardiomyocyte proliferation & regeneration; and protect against cardiac dysfunction.
