Making promises for all our hearts
World Heart Day is the world’s biggest awareness-raising platform for cardiovascular disease. The annual campaign brings together individuals, families, communities and organisations around the world to participate in activities to take charge of their heart health and that of others. This year’s theme for World Heart Day is to make a promise... for my heart, for your heart, for all our hearts.

An autoantibody identifies arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy and participates in its pathogenesis
Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is characterized by right ventricular myocardial replacement and life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias. Desmosomal gene mutations are sometimes identified, but clinical and genetic diagnosis remains challenging. Desmosomal skin disorders can be caused by desmosomal gene mutations or autoantibodies. We sought to determine if anti-desmosome antibodies are present in subjects with ARVC.
