Likely vaccine against heart attacks

Recent research carried out by a team of researchers from King’s College London found the underlying genetic mechanism which creates specific proteins that stimulate the body into creating healthy heart cells can be delivered to the muscle using the same technology used for vaccines, the RNA technology in particular. The mechanism, called “blockbuster medicine”, will reportedly be examined on human subjects within the next two years, said the lead researcher Professor Mauro Giacca. Highlighting the plight of heart attack victims as the heart has no ability to repair itself, the researchers stressed on the importance of the new study as it could potentially transform cardiovascular medicine.
