Abstract

EDITORIAL Plasma MicroRNA Clusters in Human Left Ventricular Remodeling A Biomarker and Discovery Platform See Article by Shah et al Arun Padmanabhan, MD, PhD Saptarsi M. Haldar, MD mpaired cardiac function results in increased neurohormonal activity, a stress response initially mounted to augment cardiac output. However, chronic or ex- Icessive activity of the neurohormonal response contributes to progressive myo- cardial damage and the clinical manifestations of the heart failure (HF) syndrome. This myocardial injury leads to a vicious cycle of organ remodeling, wherein the shape, thickness, volume of the ventricular cavity, and the functional state of the cells populating the stressed heart are adversely altered in a manner that further 1,2 compromises cardiac performance. Early work in animal models of myocardial infarction demonstrated the pathophysiologic significance of cardiac remodeling and a role for neurohormonal blockade in its prevention and reversal.
