A study shows how you can make a “pill” to help improve the heart, but how to apply it to patients is still a mystery.
Researchers from the University of Florida’s School of Medicine used a new kind of heart valve to create a new type of heart protein.
The researchers found the protein is essential to making the heart pump better, and it can help treat congestive heart failure and other cardiac problems.
The research, published online in the journal Science Translational Medicine, found the new heart protein was produced in the heart valve and it was able to attach to blood vessels and make them better able to pump oxygen to the heart.
The new heart valve was made of the same type of material used in heart valves.
It was created by adding a molecule called polyethylene glycol (PET), which was previously thought to be a filler.
PET is used to make synthetic rubber for cars, and is also used to create sealants.
“This was a really exciting discovery,” said lead author J. Michael Anderson, MD, PhD, an associate professor of medicine at the University at Albany.
“This is a major advance in our understanding of how the heart works.
It gives us a new way to create and deliver a drug.”
The new research has been supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health, the U.S. Army Research Office, the Office of Naval Research and the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases.
The work was supported by a National Institutes for Health grant.
