Treatment of atrial fibrillation associated with obesity using endothelin receptor antagonists
Atrial fibrosis prevention in obese and overweight patients Overweight patients are at increased risk of atrial fibrillation (AF) and atrial fibrosis. Treatment of this group with endothelin receptor antagonists (ERAs) could reduce that risk and obviate the need for more invasive and expensive treatments for atrial fibrillation, such as ablation pr...

A novel early detection biomarker for risk and severity of cardiac fibrosis
Market NeedCardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for the death of 17.1 million people. Currently patients are assessed for risk of heart disease by simple blood test for biomarkers such as cholesterol, troponin and brain natriuretic peptides. However, the predictive value of these biomarkers and hence the ...
