Reducing mortality after Aortic-Valve Implantation

Reducing the mortality rate of patients after Aortic-Valve Implantation by Anti-Fibrotic Treatment

A subpopulation of patients with a very high rist to die in only one year after an aortic valve implantation (AVI) was identified. A novel treatment may save lives by analysing the level of fibrosis in the heart tissue.

GMP-compatible methods for producing tissue-engineered human heart muscle from stem cells

GMP-compatible Methods for producing tissue-engineered human heart muscle from stem cells

Heart tissue engineering using stem cells is a recently developed technique to construct a three dimensional cell structure from cardiomyocytes or directly from progenitor cells. Scientists at the University of Göttingen developed two new and fully defined methods for serum-free production of engineered human heart muscles.

EYA1— Biomarker and Target for kidney fibrosis

EYA1 — Biomarker and therapeutic target for kidney fibrosis

The EYA1 splicing was found to be linked with the progression of fibrosis. Patients expressing predominantly EYA1-A ("bad" variant) end up in the end stage renal disease earlier and suffer from a higher mortality. A shift of splicing towards EYA1-C ("good" variant) effectively attenuates fibrosis in vivo (mouse model).
