Two Boston hospital patient registries show women ages 50 and younger are less likely to have a heart attack compared to men the same age, but they have higher death rates a decade later.
Scientists finalized the Genotype-Tissue Expression project, which characterizes thousands of genetic variants in 49 tissue types from 838 donors.
A study profiles the metabolic preferences of human hearts, which supports future research to prevent and treat heart failure.
Peter Libby, M.D., never imagined nearly 40 years ago that his research would contribute to the current understanding of how the novel coronavirus targets and ravages the blood vessels in people with COVID-19. In the 1980s, Libby, then an assistant professor of medicine at Tufts University School of Medicine, was the first to discover that arterial...
