Assessment of the uniqueness of diabetic cardiomyopathy relative to other forms of heart failure using unbiased pheno-mapping approaches
2019 – 2024
A rapidly evolving epidemic in Type 2 Diabetes (T2DM) is afflicting all ages, sexes and socioeconomic classes which includes serious comorbidities such as heart diseases. While ischaemic heart disease represents the major cause of death of T2DM patients, heart failure (80% of Heart Failure with preserved Ejection Fraction) is the second most common cardiovascular disease in T2DM patients.
The aim of CARDIATEAM is to determine whether T2DM represents a central mechanism contributing to the pathogenesis and progression of a specific cardiomyopathy, called “diabetic cardiomyopathy” (DCM), assessing whether DCM is unique and distinct from the other forms of heart failure.
Assess the uniqueness of Diabetic Cardiomyopathy
Provide access to cohorts within CARDIATEAM consortium for
- enrolment into a new one with deeply phenotyped patients with broad spectrum of cardiometabolic disorders
- access to existing published data for retrospective epidemiological meta-analyses.
Explore by unbiased statistical clustering analysis the specific contribution of Type 2 Diabetes to the development of diabetic cardiomyopathy.
Explore the role of confounding factors that include ageing process and metabolic exposome in inducing diabetic cardiomyopathy.
Understand the physiological pathways responsible for establishment and progression of diabetic cardiomyopathy by translating bedside phenotypic data to bench preclinical models of diabetic cardiomyopathy.
Use diabetic cardiomyopathy as a representative comorbidity for the paradigm of Heart Failure and a targetable mechanism for proof-of-concept studies
Explore the role of existing and newly identified biomarkers for risk stratification of Type 2 Diabetes patients and their potential application for personalised preventive and therapeutic strategies.
