Amazing Gene Discovery & Treatment for Infantile DCM

Good news! Researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine identified a new cause of infantile DCM and reversed the effects of the mutation.

“In an effort to determine the cause behind a rare condition that causes heart failure in children, University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM)┬áresearchers have identified new gene mutations responsible for the disorder in an infant patient.

After they successfully learned how the mutation works, they were able to use a drug to reverse its effects in heart muscle cells derived from stem cells from the patient…”
