Can the Immune System Protect after Repeated Myocardial Injury?
While the immune response to a single cardiac event has been well researched, few have reported on whether an adaptive immunity is observed after repeated cardiac injury. Here, we discuss a recent publication from Tiwary et al., in which they investigate the cytoprotective response after multiple cardiomyopathic injuries.
