A recent study from theInstitute for Cardiovascular Regeneration, Centre of Molecular Medicine, Frankfurt, Germanyshows that“MicroRNA-34a regulatescardiacageingand function.”This study was published in the March7 2013NaturebyProf Dimmler, Boon,and others.
On the foundation of this interesting finding,Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD,reports that: Insights into the treatment of alcohol-induced cardiac ageing: Heavy alcohol drinkinginhibits myocardial function and promotes myocardial infarction via up regulation of its targetgene.By limiting the intake of alcohol,one may prevent ageing/stress-associated decline in cardiac function.Together, this studysuggests thatpharmacological formulations encompassing“compounds that inhibit Alcohol-induced target genes”may be used to improve cardiac function in heavy drinkers.

Significance:This study elucidates the mechanism by which Alcohol declines myocardial function. Furthermore, this study suggests, for the first time, small molecule compounds that inhibit Alcohol-induced target gene expression may be used to treat alcoholics suffering from various myocardial disorders, including myocardial infarction.
