DNA damage as a new biomarker for Atrial Fibrillation
Written by: Prof. Dr. Bianca Brundel , ,
Last year, AFIP published an article on the discovery made by the team of Prof. Bianca Brundel (Amsterdam UMC), that atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with DNA damage in the

L-glutamine alters HSP levels and normalises energy status in patients with atrial fibrillation

L-glutamine alters HSP levels and normalises energy status in patients with atrial fibrillation
Written by: Prof. Dr. Bianca Brundel , ,
Treatment strategies for atrial fibrillation (AF) are only moderately effective and do not prevent AF onset and progression. This difficulty of treatment predicts a great need to dissect root causes

Unraveling of genetic causes of atrial fibrillation: from mechanism to treatment

Unraveling of genetic causes of atrial fibrillation: from mechanism to treatment
Written by: Prof. Dr. Bianca Brundel ,
Younger people may experience atrial fibrillation due to a genetic cause. The German-Dutch research team has identified atrial fibrillation families that carry mutations in genes responsible for proteins of the

Inflammasomes and Proteostasis: Novel Molecular Mechanisms Associated With Atrial Fibrillation
Written by: Prof. Dr. Bianca Brundel ,
Atrial fibrillation (AF), the most common progressive and age-related cardiac arrhythmia, affects millions of people worldwide. AF is associated with common risk factors, including hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and obesity, and
Miles Henderson describes PPG technology to detect atrial fibrillation

Weighing the Effectiveness of Photoplethysmography Signal Analysis in Population Diagnosis of Atrial Fibrillation

Weighing the Effectiveness of Photoplethysmography Signal Analysis in Population Diagnosis of Atrial Fibrillation
Written by: Prof. Dr. Bianca Brundel ,
Review paper by Miles Henderson, biomedical student at the Amsterdam University College. Photoplethysmography has become an accessible component of smartwatches in recent years. The primary advantage of these devices is

Cell-free circulating mitochondrial DNA: a potential blood-based marker for atrial fibrillation

Cell-free circulating mitochondrial DNA: a potential blood-based marker for atrial fibrillation
Written by: Prof. Dr. Bianca Brundel ,
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common progressive cardiac tachyarrhythmia globally. AF is present in 3% of the total population, with a higher prevalence in the elderly, and is associated
