Molecular mapping of the heart to predict disease susceptibility

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Vulnerability to heart disease can be projected before symptoms occur, Mayo Clinic discovered in preclinical research. This proof-of-concept study revealed that heart muscle changes indicate who is vulnerable to disease later in life. These changes can be detected from blood samples through comprehensive protein and metabolite profiling. This exploratory mapping, conducted in the Marriott Family […]

Largest pharmacogenetics clinical trial in cardiology shows potential benefit in individualized approach to anti-platelet therapy

By Susan Murphy Susan Murphy (@susanmurphy)

By Terri Malloy Heart patients who undergo percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or stent placement― nonsurgical procedures to improve blood flow to the heart ― are typically prescribed anti-platelet therapy to avoid blood clots that can lead to a heart attack or stroke. New research from the international TAILOR-PCI trial, the largest pharmacogenetics clinical trial in […]

Genetic cardiovascular disease: Is your family at risk?

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

With cardiovascular disease a leading cause of death, it’s fair to say that many people have been touched by this disorder. Maybe a family member died suddenly of a heart attack, or a friend suffered a disabling stroke. February is American Heart Month, a great time to talk about the precision approach Mayo Clinic Center […]

Genomics Of Antiplatelet Heart Medication Study At Mayo Clinic

By AJ Montpetit AJ Montpetit (@ajmontpetit)

Which antiplatelet medication is best after a coronary stent? The costly and potential life-or-death question lingers after most of the 600,000 angioplasties performed every year in the United States. The answer may lie in your genes, but professional cardiovascular societies and many working cardiologists question the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s recent recommendation that patients undergo genetic testing before taking Plavix (clopidogrel bisulfate). The […]
