This book provides an approach to discussing new targets for molecular strategies in heart failure therapy. On the basis of most recent data, international experts in this field elaborate on the most relevant pathophysiological alterations in heart failure on a molecular level and discuss potential strategies. These include technical aspects of gene transfer, gene transfer approaches to treating pump failure and arrhythmias, and gene transfer to prevent apoptosis. Furthermore, the topics myocyte transplantation and cell cycle regulation are discussed.The book contains twenty-one chapters including state-of-the-art review articles as well as original papers.
