Pill to reverse effects of heart failure

Researchers from the University of Glasgow and the University of Turin focused on how enzymes in the body play a role in heart failure and the effect it has on the body.

They identified one enzyme — PI-3 kinase, which had a vital effect on heart failure. The researchers believe by using drugs to control the activity of the enzyme, heart disease symptoms could be reversed.

Receptors are found on the surface of cells and when adrenaline binds with these receptors on heart cells it is able to send a signal telling the heart how fast to beat.
