Dr. Hove-Madsen (IIBB) participates in an international and multidisciplinary project that identifies a molecular mechanism of the cardiac alternans, one of the causes of severe cardiac arrhythmia and sudden death

An international team of multidisciplinary researchers has identified one of the molecular mechanisms underlying cardiac alternans, an alteration of the heart rhythm that facilitates the induction of ventricular fibrillation, a potentially fatal arrhythmia. Furthermore, they show that people with loss of ryanodine receptor (RyR) function are prone to induction of ventricular fibrillation and sudden death caused by cardiac alternans.
