GENETICS OF FAMILIAL DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY SECTION - RIYADH

5808

Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a disease of the cardiac muscle characterized by a dilation of the left ventricle and thinning of the ventricular wall associated with reduced cardiac function often resulting in heart failure. In Saudi Arabia the majority of DCM cases are idiopathic and a significant number are familial cases (FDCM). By performing functional genomics and molecular analyses, we are actively searching for novel genes causing FDCM in the Saudi population.
