Discovery: Role of microRNA in Anticancer Drug-Induced Cardiotoxicity

Doxorubicin (DOX, an anthracycline) is a widely used chemotherapy agent against various forms of cancer. However, it is known to induce dose-dependent cardiotoxicity that leads to adverse cardiac complications. Our lab investigates the role of microRNA-377 in anticancer drug-induced cardiotoxicity in mice. Read the full article at:
