Unlocking the Secrets of cAMP Signalling in the Heart: A Pathway to Targeted Therapeutics

CRE General

A new Zaccolo group study has revealed key new insights into the role of cAMP signalling in both healthy and disease settings within the heart. They have identified new cAMP nanodomains in cardiac muscle cells that have far reaching implications for the treatment of heart disease.

New predictive marker of heart failure after heart attack – OxAMI study

A new publication from the ongoing OxAMI study finds that patients who have had a heart attack show subtle inflammatory differences in the heart muscle unaffected by heart attack. These differences are linked to patients' long-term prognosis.

New blood test from DPAG cardiac researchers could save lives of heart attack victims

CRE General

Researchers from the Herring group have developed a blood test that measures stress hormone levels after heart attacks. The test – costing just £10 – could ensure patients receive timely life-saving treatment.

Triglycerides may be the key to understanding ‘residual risk’ for coronary heart disease

Researchers at Oxford Population Health and King’s College London have found that people with high levels of some triglyceride-carrying apolipoproteins may still be two to three times more likely to develop coronary heart disease even if their LDL-cholesterol levels are under control. The results are published in Circulation Research.
