The Application of Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells in Cardiac Disease Modeling and Drug Testing

The Application of Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells in Cardiac Disease Modeling and Drug Testing In recent decades, cardiovascular diseases have become the greatest health threat to human beings, and thus it is particularly important to explore the subtle underlying pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases. Although many molecular pathways have been explored to be essential in the development of cardiovascular diseases, their clinical significances are still uncertain. With the emergence of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), a unique platform for cardiovascular diseases has been established to model cardiovascular diseases on specific genetic background in vitro. This review summarizes current progresses of iPSCs in cardiovascular disease modeling and drug testing. This review highlighted iPSC-based cardiovascular disease modeling and drug testing. The technical advances in iPSC-based researches and various clinically relevant applications are discussed. With further intensive research, iPSC technology will shape the future of clinical translational research in cardiovascular diseases. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Cardiovascular Translational Research Springer Journals

Abstract

In recent decades, cardiovascular diseases have become the greatest health threat to human beings, and thus it is particularly important to explore the subtle underlying pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases. Although many molecular pathways have been explored to be essential in the development of cardiovascular diseases, their clinical significances are still uncertain. With the emergence of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), a unique platform for cardiovascular diseases has been established to model cardiovascular diseases on specific genetic background in vitro. This review summarizes current progresses of iPSCs in cardiovascular disease modeling and drug testing. This review highlighted iPSC-based cardiovascular disease modeling and drug testing. The technical advances in iPSC-based researches and various clinically relevant applications are discussed. With further intensive research, iPSC technology will shape the future of clinical translational research in cardiovascular diseases.
