Postmortem Genetic Testing for Cardiac Ion Channelopathies in Stillbirths.
BACKGROUND: Although stillbirth is a significant health problem worldwide, the definitive cause of death remains elusive in many cases, despite detailed autopsy. In this study of partly explained and unexplained stillbirths, ...
Thirty loci identified for heart rate response to exercise and recovery implicate autonomic nervous system.
Impaired capacity to increase heart rate (HR) during exercise (ΔHRex), and a reduced rate of recovery post-exercise (ΔHRrec) are associated with higher cardiovascular mortality rates. Currently, the genetic basis of both ...
