Uncovering anti-arrhythmic potential of stellate ganglion purinergic receptors.

Background. Cardiovascular disease affects over 30% of people worldwide, and is one of the leading causes of death each year. Elevated sympathetic nerve activity is a common feature of cardiovascular disease, contributing to end-organ damage, morbidity and mortality [1-3]. Read more

The non-coding genome in cardiovascular disease

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. Inherited DNA sequence variants play a role in conferring risk for disease, yet we can only predict the harmful effects of mutations in the protein-encoding portion of a gene. Read more

Sedentary behaviour, physical activity, psychological stress and vascular health - implications for cardiovascular disease

A Multi-Omics approach to understanding cardiovascular risk in patients with End-Stage Kidney Disease

Background. End-stage Kidney failure, also known as End-Stage Kidney Disease (ESKD), is the final, irreversible stage of chronic kidney disease (CKD), where kidney function has worsened to the point that the kidneys can no longer function independently. Read more

Association of oral streptococci with vascular inflammation and cardiovascular disease risk

Bacteria are the primary cause of infectious diseases; however, emerging evidence suggests that these organisms are also indirectly responsible for several non-infectious conditions including cardiovascular diseases. Read more
