I am looking forward to sharing the results of many years of research demonstrating that modulation of the cyclin A2 gene, which is normally silenced in mammalian hearts after birth, has been proven to stimulate growth of new heart muscle cells.
VentriNova's pioneering science and technology is centered on development of biologic and small molecule regulators of the cyclin A2 gene - the key switch mediating heart cell division.
