Centre for Cardiology

Cardiology is the branch of medicine dealing with heart disorders. Heart diseases grew in about the 20th century and today it is the leading cause of deaths worldwide i.e. 31%.

The heart is composed of involuntary muscle tissue found only within this organ also known as cardiac muscle. Most cardiac diseases are caused due to change in lifestyle. Various coronary heart diseases tend to develop when cholesterol builds up on the artery walls and create plaques. By 1948, one in three deaths in the United States were due to coronary heart disease. Recently scientists have also identified genetic risk factors for heart diseases and concluded that there is an interplay between environment and genetic risk factors.

Technoculture research is trying to develop cardiovascular medicine that can cure various cardiovascular diseases. For this we are trying to study the relationship between tRNA and tRf associated with plaque derived factor which gets accumulated and restricts the blood flow along the artery and vein and their proficiency get reduced. We are also focusing on the genetic factors responsible for developing various cardiovascular diseases.

As our drug i.e. ribozyme is able to downregulate various interleukins, cytokines, and chemokines and can also downregulate the mechanism of various genes responsible for the disease.
