Researchers at Imperial College, University of London are leading a new study looking at improving diagnosis and treatment for people living with Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM).
The team of experts will gather more information than ever before about the condition using advanced genome sequencing, high-tech heart imaging and detailed protein studies. They will search for new genes that cause DCM, and will scan the heart to find out whether damage to the heart muscle, such as scarring, predicts how people with DCM will be affected. The new insights from this project will help to find better ways to diagnose DCM, understand which patients are most at risk from severe disease, unlock clues to new treatments and ultimately prevent the condition.
