The MyHeart project: A framework for personal health care applications

M. Harris, J. Habetha
2007 2007 Computers in Cardiology  
MyHeart is a so-called Integrated Project of the European Union aimed at developing intelligent systems for the prevention and monitoring of cardiovascular status.  ...  The approach of the MyHeart project is to monitor Vital Body Signs (VBS) with wearable technology, to process the measured data and to give the user (therapy) recommendations from the system.  ...  Acknowledgements This work was supported in part by the IST-2002-507816 MyHeart Project.  ...

The Missing "lnc" between Genetics and Cardiac Disease

Azodi, Kamps, Heymans, Robinson
2020 Non-Coding RNA  
We highlight how, despite lncRNA genes exceeding that of classical protein-coding genes by number, the "non-coding" human genome is neglected when looking for genetic components of disease.  ...  We suggest that the importance of lncRNAs in disease causation and progression be taken as seriously as that of pathogenic protein variants and mutations, and that this is maybe a new area of attention  ...  It acts as an epigenetic modulator, by binding and suppressing the Ezh2 catalytic unit of the polycomb repressor complex 2, preventing H3K27 methylation at key hypertrophy-associated genes, including NPPA  ...
