Covid-19 Vaccine’s Mrna Technology Helps Scientists Discover World’s First Cure for Heart Attack

Hearts injured by cardiac arrest can now be repaired using the same genetic tracking technology that was used to develop Covid-19 vaccinations. Researchers at King’s College London have discovered genetic codes known as mRNAs responsible for the production of proteins necessary for the growth and development of healthy heart cells. This new discovery may be revolutionary since it can potentially be the world’s first cure for heart attacks.

Pfizer and Moderna vaccines were created using the same technique. Prof. Mauro Giacca, the study’s lead researcher, said: “We all have a set number of muscle cells in our heart and they are exactly the same ones we will die with. After a heart attack, the heart is unable to mend itself. As a team, we have been trying to identify a medication that can persuade remaining cells to divide.”

What is a heart attack?

A heart attack is a medical emergency that occurs when the heart stops working properly. A myocardial infarction, which is another name for a heart attack, occurs when the heart’s muscle doesn’t receive enough oxygen-rich blood. Without treatment to restore blood flow, the damage to the heart muscle increases over time.

The most common cause of a heart attack is coronary artery disease (CAD). A coronary artery spasm, or abrupt contraction, can cause blood to stop flowing to the heart muscle, but this is a less common cause.
