AF Symposium 2015: Surprising Research on Fibrosis Using Sheep
A-Fib produces fibrosis (tissue that has fiber-like characteristics. Over time it makes the heart stiff, less flexible and weak). When Dr. Jose Jalife of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI, paced sheep into A-Fib, their hearts became fibrotic within a very short time and increased progressively as the sheep went from paroxysmal to persistent A-Fib.
Next, Dr. Jalife gave his sheep the a Gal-3 (protein) inhibitor. Learn the surprising results…Read more of my 2015 AF Symposium Report−>
