Gene therapy sparks healthy heartbeats

2018 15 May

Following a heart attack, often the heart has difficulty performing one of its most basic jobs: beat at a normal rate. This is because after myocardial infarction, heart muscle cells are replaced by fibroblasts and new blood vessels, which do not conduct electricity and leave the heart susceptible to ventricular tachycardia – an excessive heart...
