Later this year, the inherited cardiovascular disease clinic also plans to implement a preventive genomics program with polygenic risk score and PGx testing.

Genome-wide association studies offer a look at the rare and common contributors to the heart condition, pointing to possible prediction and treatment tools.

The findings indicate that rare genetic variants in cardiomyopathy-related genes may also contribute to more common forms of heart failure. 

Researchers uncovered genetic loci that may influence why childhood cancer survivors of African ancestry are more likely to develop therapy-linked cardiomyopathy.

In PNAS this week: similar muscle protein patterns across hypertrophic cardiomyopathy phenotypes, analysis of gene expression and brain anatomy in major depression, and more.

In PLOS this week: recessive mutation tied to early-onset dilated cardiomyopathy, epigenetic analysis of lung adenocarcinoma, and more.

The University of Groningen-led team further uncovered variants associated with risk of dilated cardiomyopathy. 

The AHA said genetic testing is useful in the management of several inherited diseases such as cardiomyopathies and familial hypercholesterolemia.

A GWAS that incorporated magnetic resonance imaging data for UK Biobank participants led to 45 previously undetected risk loci related to dilated cardiomyopathy.
