Model bridges interspecies differences in heart studies


A predictive analytics model that translates the electrical activity of animal cardiac cells into human-specific data could accelerate the development of new therapies for arrhythmia and other cardiac diseases, researchers reported in Science Advances. The researchers mapped the activity of mouse, rabbit and human heart muscle cells and developed systems for translating electrophysiological responses across species, which could be useful in studying the effects of drugs and heart disease.
