Potential target for cardiac fibrosis treatment

A research team has identified a potential target for treating heart failure related to fibrosis. The study looked at an epigenetic ‘reader’ protein known as BRD4, showing that it serves a central role in regulating the activation of cardiac fibroblasts. They also found that chemical inhibitors of BRD4 potently block cardiac fibroblast activation.
