Myocardial Infarction: Targeting Ferroptosis

Myocardial infarction treatments primarily focus on restoring blood flow and mitigating immediate threat, but they often fail to address the irreversible cell damage caused during a heart attack. Understanding cell death mechanisms, particularly ferroptosis, offers a promising avenue for developing more comprehensive treatments. Here, miR331 and SIRT1 were identified as targets affecting ferroptosis in myocardial […]
