Gene Therapy that causes reduction in, post-infarction arrhythmias

We are now more aware of the diseases and an improvement have been seen in people regarding taking care of their heart and preventing heart diseases but still no more growth has been seen. Heart attack comes when heart becomes unable to do it’s obvious work of pumping blood.

After one encounter Myocardial infarction, Myocardial infarction is commonly called as heart attack and it happens when the blood flow discrepancy occurs. Muscle cells becomes damaged.

SYMPTOMS

  • Chest Pain
  • Discomfort while travelling
  • Shortness of breath
  • Feeling tired
  • Nausea

After myocardial infarction, doctors replaces the cardiac muscles with fibroblasts and blood vessels. The new problems comes in carrying out this procedure that new blood vessels are not capable of generating electrical signals and impulse that leads the heart susceptible to ventricular tachycardia, where heart beats more faster and can ultimately lead to death.

The paper Overexpression of Cx43 in Cells of the Myocardial Scar: Correction of Post-infarct Arrhythmias Through Heterotypic Cell-Cell Coupling, published the study.

Fleischmann said “We’ve created a bridge for the electrical signal,”. Scientists have done experiment on mice by transferring a gene Connexin43.
