    The ethics behind medical conferences: a view from India
    with V. Sharma
    Journal of Medical Ethics 36 (7): 445-446. 2010.
    Medical conferences are organised by professional bodies with a view to providing an opportunity of continuing medical education and improving the practices of medical professionals. Of late these events have degenerated into entertainment extravaganzas and no longer remain pure academic exercises. This article discusses the possible reasons behind the current state of decay and mechanisms to improve the state of affairs

    Epigenetic Regulation of Phosphodiesterases 2A and 3A Underlies Compromised β-Adrenergic Signaling in an iPSC Model of Dilated Cardiomyopathy (review)
    with H. Wu, J. Lee, L. G. Vincent, Q. Wang, M. Gu, F. Lan, J. M. Churko, K. I. Sallam, E. Matsa, J. D. Gold, A. J. Engler, Y. K. Xiang, D. M. Bers, and J. C. Wu
    © 2015 Elsevier Inc. β-adrenergic signaling pathways mediate key aspects of cardiac function. Its dysregulation is associated with a range of cardiac diseases, including dilated cardiomyopathy. Previously, we established an iPSC model of familial DCM from patients with a mutation in TNNT2, a sarcomeric protein. Here, we found that the β-adrenergic agonist isoproterenol induced mature β-adrenergic signaling in iPSC-derived cardiomyocytes but that this pathway was blunted in DCM iPSC-CMs. Although…Read more
