This new study led by BHF Professor of Cardiopulmonary Medicine Nick Morrell and including expertise from Dr Rajiv Machado from the School of Life Sciences at the University of Lincoln, UK, is the first to use a protein, called BMP9, to reverse the effects of reduced activity of BMPR-II and to reverse the disease itself. The study was conducted in mice and rats, but also using cells from patients with PAH...[..]]]>
