At Risk Of Heart Failure Under Abnormal Stress

At Risk Of Heart Failure Under Abnormal Stress.

Dilated cardiomyopathy is just one possible condition that would result in heart failure, when a person who may be unaware of his malady encounters undue stress.

Stuart Cook, Professor of Clinical and Molecular Cardiology and head of the Cardiovascular Genetics and Genomics group within Genetics and Imaging at the National Heart and Lung Institute at Imperial College London and the Medical Research Council Clinical Sciences Centre (CSC) at the Hammersmith Hospital Campus collaborated in this study. The CSC was founded by the Medical Research Council 20 years ago, to focus on research in advancing the understanding of biology and its application to medicine.
