Potential Way of Treating PAH Seen in Blocking Specific MicroRNA

Blocking the activity of a small RNA molecule called microRNA-30a eased alterations in heart structure and blood vessel architecture in mouse models of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), a new study reports. Results also showed that this molecule is present at abnormally high levels in PAH patients, supporting its potential as a therapeutic target. The study, “Inhibition of MicroRNA-30a Alleviates Vascular Remodeling in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension,” was published in the journal Molecular Therapy Nucleic Acids. MicroRNAs…
