Hot Topics: NT-proBNP levels improve risk assessment for poor outcome in patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest

NT-proBNP levels measured 24 hrs after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest predicted mortality and poor neurological outcome after one year on top of established risk indices.

Hot Topics: Tocilizumab attenuated the inflammatory response and primarily PCI-related TnT release in NSTEMI patients

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial including 117 patients with NSTEMI, the IL-6 receptor antagonist tocilizumab administered as a single dose prior to coronary angiography reduced the levels of CRP and troponin-T.

Hot Topics: Protein phosphatase 1c associated with the cardiac sodium calcium exchanger 1 (NCX1) regulates its activity by dephosphorylating serine 68-phosphorylated phospholemman

NCX1, an important regulator of intracellular Ca2+ homeostasis, is a substrate-specifying PP1c-targeting protein. Using a variety of molecular techniques, this study demonstrates that cardiac NCX1 facilitating its own regulation by mediating dephosphorylation of pSer-68-phospholemman.
